    All sounds can be described in a variety of ways. One of them is the manner in which a sound evolves amplitude-wise, starting from silence to full volume to final decay. Or how the harmonic content changes over time. In synthesizers, these changes to an oscillator or filter are achieved using envelope generators. EG have various break points supplied to help adjust the rates and levels of the various parts of the envelope.
