EnvelopeShaper can be used to attenuate or boost the gain of the attack and release phase of audio material.

You can use the knobs or drag the breakpoints in the graphical display to change parameter values. Be careful with levels when boosting the gain and if needed reduce the output level to avoid clipping.

Attack (-20 to 20 dB)

Sets the gain of the attack phase of the signal.

Length (5 to 200 ms)

Sets the length of the attack phase.


Sets the gain of the release phase of the signal.


Sets the output level.


This plug-in supports external side-chaining. You can use the side-chain input to control the effect from another signal source. If the side-chain signal exceeds the threshold, the effect is triggered. For a description of how to set up side-chain routing, see the Operation Manual.
