So ENV1 is always connected to the Filter and ENV2 is by default connected to the VCA.
First, VCA and Filter are connected to a different envelope by default and on most patches I guess. This seems like a choice, but I cannot really see the reason for that. It seems like in most synths one envelope is used by default.
When I create/edit a patch, one of the first thing I do is tweaking the overall sound shape. It makes it hard with 2 enveloppes, especially in the situation when I want (example) to transform a patch that I found nice into a pad. Now I understand that with 2 ENVs you can go further in the sound design. It just seems for me like the second step of the sound creation. This is not a critic, I would like to understand how you guys do it/find it. (I understand that if I’m not happy with it I can always route ENV2 to the VCA!)
Secondly why the ENV1 is always connected to the Filter? Is it a technical limitation? I don’t think it limiting in any ways but I’m curious to know why
