Noise Engineering - Sinclastic Empulatrix
The Noise Engineering - Sinclastic Empulatrix is a great envelope for your eurorack modular system's audio signals. Combined with a clamping VCA it has the silencing and tasty grit of amplification that makes this module a special "2 in 1".

Sinclastic Empulatrix is a 4HP envelope generator with a voltage controlled clamp. The envelope generator is an exponential curve with controllable attack and release. The time ranges for both attack and release vary from 50 microseconds to 5 seconds. This is normaled to a voltage controlled clamp which acts much like a VCA but with subtle distortion added on the release. The envelope in Sinclastic Empulatrix is a simple asymmetric voltage controlled slew so the ENVELOPE IN input need not be a gate. The attack controls the rate of voltage increase and release controls the rate of decrease. If ENVELOPE IN is a square wave it acts much like a traditional envelope generator. r.

Noise Engineering Sinclatic Empulatrix is an exponential Attack-Release envelope generator combined with a clamping VCA in 4HP.
Sinclastic - stolen treasure - from Old English sinc 'treasure', from Greek clastic 'easily removable'
Empulatrix - - from Javanese empu 'an honorific title for craftsmen' with suffix -trix from Proto-Indo-European forming a feminine noun with a negative connotation
