upon researching for envelope following algorithms i found this page wich has a few similar but slightly different concepts:

The final stages f the project are as follows:
Write my software plugin.
Finish my hardware.
All the principle of good triggering are in place, but the major hurdles lie in putting the principles into my new learnt juce knowledge (which is the language i am write the plugin in).
On the hardware side of things the interface is prototyped and one channel (which is all i have implemeted at the moment) is working no problem. Now the majour hurdle is making a USB controller out of an arduino (using potentiometers) and a midi to usb converter so it is plug-and-play MIDI signal.
The following website is a project that used a usb midi converter to send a midi signal from the arduino to the computer.
The following link is from the arduino website, which gives example of arduino code to take potentiometer input.
I am planning make a midi rotary controllers to control some perimeters of the plugin. I will do this by using potentiometers as an input(into arduino) and using this input to create a midi message, which will go into the midi to usb converter, which will be connected to the computer.
thats the plan anyway!
