Not sure if I understand you correctly. I would imagine when I have
audio ABC and cut block B that AC remains. What actually happens with
envelopes is, that, depending on what is cut exactly, large parts of C
are changed (in terms of how they sound) because envelope points refer
to previous points. E.g., in picture 3 I would have expected that a step
in the envelope be inserted at the point where the audio is cut. If that
is not the intended behaviour, this is fine for me. (Actually, I have
never used the envelope feature for anything substantial, I just worry
about regressions for the 1.3 release...)
