sorry, "a even a short hold time"?

You can't have proper peak detection using [env~]. It will always

Sure, hence it's a variation, which takes into account the peak, not RMS.

My idea was in fact to propose this as a second output for [env~]

but anyway, seems [slop~] is doing the trick now and that what I thought
was bad was actually how things work, so all I can say is that we could
make a better/proper example on how to feed both RMS and peak into [vu]
