Sets the number of points in envelope number N. The level of the envelope at those points can then be set with egN_levelX. When a region begins playing, the envelope starts at point number 0, and therefore an envelope with 4 points will have points numbered 0 through 3, not 1 through 4.

Examples #

eg01_points=3 	eg01_sustain=2
eg01_level0=0 	eg01_time0=0
eg01_level1=1 	eg01_time1=1
eg01_level2=1 	eg01_time2=1

eg01_points=7 eg01_sustain=5 
eg01_level0=0 	 eg01_time0=0
eg01_level1=1 	 eg01_time1=0.5
eg01_level2=0.7  eg01_time2=0.5
eg01_level3=1  	 eg01_time3=0.5
eg01_level4=0.7  eg01_time4=0.5
eg01_level5=0.1  eg01_time5=0.5
eg01_level6=0    eg01_time6=1

Practical Considerations #

At least in ARIA, it’s not necessary to define egN_points as the parser will calculate how many points the envelope has from the number of points defined using egN_level and egN_time for the specific number N. If egN_points is set to a lower value than the number of points defined for the envelope, the entire envelope will be used, and it will not be truncated at the number set usign egN_points - so in effect, in ARIA this opcode appears to do nothing.

It may be necessary to specify this in Cakewalk players, however.
