    In the context of signal processing and particularly dynamics, release refers the time it takes for the processing device to return to its normal state (no processing.) The term is also used to describe the final stage of an ADSR envelope, where the release portion determines how long it takes for the envelope to return to a zero position. So if the envelope generator is controlling the amplitude of a sound, the release will determine how fast a slow a sound will take to decay to silence.
