Attack indeed. This is one more for the Thurston Moore noise maker crowd (but not exclusively, I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings). I don’t know exactly what to say about this one. Pigtronix says the ASDR is a “polyphonic amplitude-envelope synthesizer that provides volume swell with variable attack time, compression / sustain and variable decay with automatic reset.” Yup. Also, it makes really crazy noises.

Apparently, with the Attack and Decay functions off but with the pedal engaged, it’s a compressor. With the functions engaged, it’s all bets off. Volume swells, reverse-type sounds, jagged tremors, stuttering chords—there are a lot of interesting sounds to be had here. Just be careful. $280 street.
