Um, sorry, but that's not true: Even the early Music N saw the need to
be able to define arbitrary length break point envelopes. Usually
these are called "GEN" functions with a number afterwards. The ADSR so
popular on commercial synths is just a simplied (some say:
dumbed-down) version of a breakpoint GEN-function. And even the most
popular hardware synth, the DX7, didn't have simple ADSRs but slightly
more complex and powerful envelopes.
