On Rest / To Rise

Explore this “hidden feature” of FALISTRI’s green generator! A switch on the PCB lets you choose between two different retrig behaviors: ‘on rest’ retrigs the green envelope only if it has reached its End of Fall; ‘to rise’ simply recalls the rising stage from whichever level the envelope is in, just like the yellow generator. Explore those two different features and find the most suitable to you.




  1. [FIRST FALISTRI] Set the yellow generator to ‘Loop’ mode.
  2. Set its Time Scale switch to ‘Short’ and adjust the frequency to taste.
  3. Patch its bipolar output to the first input of the 4QM.
    (This time we will use the yellow generator as main audio source).
  4. [SECOND FALISTRI] Set the yellow generator to ‘Loop’ mode.
  5. Set its Time Scale switch to ‘Long’.
  6. Set the its Rise’ and ‘Fall’ knobs to noon.
  7. Set the green generator to ‘Transient’ mode.
  8. Set its behavior ‘To Rise’ through the dedicated switch on the PCB.
  9. Set its Time Scale switch to ‘Long’.
  10. Set the its Rise’ and ‘Fall’ knobs to 11 o’clock.
  11. Patch the yellow generator’s EOF to the green one’s Trig input.
  12. Patch the green unipolar output to the second input of the first FALISTRI’s 4QM.
    (Now the yellow EOF will trig the green envelope, which will control the first FALISTRI’s amplitude. As long as the green generator has shorter times than the yellow one, it will be clearly audible. Rotate the ‘Rise’ and ‘Fall’ knobs to the right to have longer envelopes: you will notice that the trig will always recall the rising stage from the point previously reached by the envelope: this will result in a “thinner” envelope, unbalanced towards the highest voltage values.)
  13. Now reset the green generator’s ‘Rise’ and ‘Fall’ knobs to 11 and set the switch on the PCB to ‘On Rest’.
    (With this setting, the green generator can be retriggered only when it reaches the ‘Rest’ stage, i.e. once the ‘Fall’ is completed: other trigs received in the meantime will be ignored. By increasing the ‘Rise’ and ‘Fall’ time, the result will be longer envelopes which will progressively be triggered every 2, 3, 4, 5… impulses.)
