Gate Controlled Lag Generator (Slide / AR Envelope)

The Takaab S.A.R (Slide, Attack, Release) is a voltage lag generator designed primarily to function as either a portamento/slide circuit or an AR envelope generator.

With both the push switches out (ON) a voltage applied to the main input will be outputted with any rises or falls in voltage being slowed down dependant on where the A (attack/rise) and R (release/fall) knobs are set to. Therefore, inputting a 1v/oct control voltage will result in a portamento effect, whilst a smooth rising and falling envelope can be generated by inputting a gate.

With the switches pushed in (AUTO) the lag effect will be normally off and will be switched on whenever a gate signal is present at one or both of the adjacent jack inputs. - If a jack is only inserted into one of these inputs then any gate will affect both A and R. Plugging separate jacks into both the A and R inputs will give independent gate switching of each of these parameters.

The ‘Curve’ knob gives control over the curve of the lag, ranging from nearly linear to an exponential (shark fin) curve. It also somewhat effects the overall length, with the lag becoming a little longer the more curved it is.

The range switch changes the range of the lag time: The centre position being the shortest and is most useful for slides or portamentos. The top position is the middle setting while the lower position is the longest range – most useful for envelopes. At this range you may hear some lag even with A and R at their lowest settings if using the unit as a portamento.
