- Depth: 26
The Quad Envelope consists of four AHDSR modulators. Various modes of operation, including loop and synchronization functions, make the module exceptionally flexible. Thanks to integrated sequencers, movements of attack, hold, decay, sustain and release faders can be recorded. – A great feature, especially for generating lively basses, pads and experimental percussion.
The Quad Envelope consists of four AHDSR envelopes. Attack, hold, decay, sustain and release phases can be edited using faders. The control elements’ ranges can be changed via a switch. This also affects the curves of the time-sensitive parameters. Three settings are available, in detail:
- Fast: Short times and exponential curves
- Slow: Long times and linear curves
- Tempo: Time-sensitive parameters are synchronized to the module’s clock input (1/1 to 1/32). The curve shapes range from exponential (short) to linear (long).
A detailed list with all ranges can be found in the manual.
The envelopes are activated via the Gate In connectors. Again, there are several behaviors to choose from:
- Loop (The envelope is looping constantly.)
- Gate / Loop (The envelope is looping as long as a gate signal is present at the input.)
Using the link option, the inputs of envelope two, three and / or four can be normalized to the first channel.
Modulation sequencers with 16 steps allow you to record movements of all faders. – Simply hit record and you are ready to go. The playback is synchronized to the clock input. In addition, there is a reset connector. The following playback modes are available:
The Quad Envelope saves settings and modulation sequences automatically. Owners of a Varigate 4+ or Varigate 8+ have access to 16 preset slots.

Quad Envelope @Malekko
Joshua Holley and Paul Barker (former member of the band Ministry) started building guitar pedals on a kitchen table. At some point they moved to Portland and released some designs by Grant Richter from Wiard. Later on they were appointed by Japanese synth-giant Roland to help them engineer their port to eurorack of the 500-series. By now, Malekko is a very established name in the eurorack scene.
