Envelope Generator (EG)

The envelope of a sound can be explained as a variation that occurs to it over time. How a sound starts, continues, and disappears in terms of pitch, harmonic content, and loudness is a function of its envelope. An envelope generator is a circuit or algorithm found in most synthesizers that provide a means to apply these kinds of changes to a sound over time.
