Envelope follower with different attack and release

References : Posted by Bram

Notes :
xxxx_in_ms is xxxx in milliseconds ;-)

Code :
init::

attack_coef = exp(log(0.01)/( attack_in_ms * samplerate * 0.001));
release_coef = exp(log(0.01)/( release_in_ms * samplerate * 0.001));
envelope = 0.0;

loop::

tmp = fabs(in);
if(tmp > envelope)
envelope = attack_coef * (envelope - tmp) + tmp;
else
envelope = release_coef * (envelope - tmp) + tmp;

Comment :
the expressions of the form:

xxxx_coef = exp(log(0.01)/( xxxx_in_ms * samplerate * 0.001));

can be simplified a little bit to:

xxxx_coef = pow(0.01, 1.0/( xxxx_in_ms * samplerate * 0.001));

Excuse me if I'm asking a lame question but is the envelope variable the output for the given input sample? Also would this algorithm apply to each channel independently for a stereo signal? One more question what is an Envelope Follower, what does it sound like?

What's the difference between this one and the one you posted named 'Envelope detector'? Different definiton? What's the exact definition of release time and attack time?

Comment :
Here the definition of the attack/release time is the time for the envelope to fall from 100% to 1%. In the other version, the definition is for the envelope to fall from 100% to 36.7%. So in this one the envelope is about 4.6 times faster.

What if you want 0ms attack with > 0ms release? 0ms attack in the current equation results in attack_coef = exp ( log(0.01) / 0 ) ) which is not a number due to the division by 0. Would using attack_coef = 0 instead result in an accurate algorithm?

Thanks.
