VOICE EDIT MODE / 3: Full Edit. 3-2: AEG
3-2-01: LEVEL / 3-2-02: RATE
3-2-01: LEVEL / 3-2-02: RATE
The TG500’s main AEG (Amplitude Envelope generator) has five individually
programmable rates and two levels for exceptional envelope programming flexibility.
Next to the fundamental waveform used, the amplitude envelope is one of the most
important factors determining the overall sound of a voice.
Although the AEG levels and rates are accessed via separate screens, they will be
described together in this section in order to provide a clearer overall picture of AEG
• 3-2-01: Level
• 3-2-02: Rate
Mode (Amplitude EG attack/hold mode)
Range: atk, hold
The “atk” and “hold” mode settings affect the initial attack of the sound,
determining how the amplitude envelope begins. In the “atk” mode, the enve-
lope begins from zero level, reaching the maximum AWM level at a rate deter-
mined by the R1 (Rate 1) parameter. In this mode there will always be a slight
delay between the initiation of a note and maximum level.
