Going from v0.25 to 0.26 I noticed many of my patches sounded differently. I soon realized it was mostly due to the fact that in the later version ENV2 now also reacts to the key tracking setting previously exclusive to ENV1.
I notified UDO about it and got the response this was decided upon to now be standard behavior and not a bug.
I’m personally not a fan -
First, It doesn’t make sense visually, as panel wise key tracking looks part of ENV1 only, just like the looping feature, and somewhat throws off at least my visual and muscle memory. I never reached for that parameter to change ENV2, and it just made me confused to why the notes didn’t decay the same.
Second, to me it creates a worse workflow, as I usually set desired ENV2 behavior first, and then work on other modulation. Now, if/when I change ENV1 tracking, I constantly have to compensate for the change in response in ENV2 back and forth. This becomes even more frustrating when doing arpeggios or sequencing. Not a fan.
I’ve asked the devs to at least provide an option to let us select the desired default behavior via some menu setting.
But wanted to ask, what do the rest of you think? Esp. if you went from an earlier version to v0.26.
What would be the benefit of coupling the switch to both envelopes, am I missing something?
