ADSR amplitude curves

    so [ADSR~] -> [*~]
    sounds pretty bad but
    [ADSR~] -> [scale 0 1 -127 0] -> [dbtoa~]-> [*~]
    also sounds pretty bad.
    Is there a standard way to do this where the attack and release sound super smooth? log 12* bizbat ^foo?

      what many people do is something like log10 "upwards" for the attack and "downwards" for the decay, then again linear for the release, i have no idea where it comes from...however it also only sounds good for certain types of sounds... and if you dont like adsr then make your own... do you need realtime modulation? beause if not, then it is really great and cpu-cheap to use a buffer with arbitrary content.
