ADSR envelope generator

I created a simple ADSR envelope generator. It's based on this gate (by gilzad), edited so that it passes a DC-offset signal through the compressors, sidechained by an FM synth. Paired with a Snd2Ctl module, it can be used to control anything you might want to put an envelope on.

Pros:
+ can be used independent of the sound source (see test file)
+ allows for more varied sounds
+ no fiddling with the sample editor
Cons:
- has a polyphony of one
- takes up an extra track
- requires that the signal being enveloped last at least as long as the envelope
- the attack overshoots what you might want your controller to hit
