Synthrotek ADSR - DIY Build
For our latest build, we take on the new Synthrotek ADSR. This ADSR is a small (only 4HP) and simple envelope generator that has a CV additive available in its ADR stages giving it a unique controllability that few ADSR modules have.
It is well known that as one dives deeper into the world of modular synthesis, it becomes apparent that certain types of modules are needed to compose dynamic sound. ADSRs can dynamically change the “movement” of sound due to its ability to alter parts of the sound waves.
Before we jump into the build, we have to state one thing.An ADSR is a must for any modular artist, and the Synthrotek ADSR is an excellent choice!

By definition, ADSR stands for Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release. It’s a must-know concept for all types of music production and sound design. Together, they make up the ADSR envelope which can alter the shape and sound of audio giving you dynamic music.
This concept of ADSR applies to all sound no matter what kind of source you’re using. ADSR controls are most commonly found on VST synths, hardware synths and samplers. Now, enough with the jargon, lets get on with the latest build…
