I found the ADSR-functions of the MCV-24 only useful for long sweeps with slow attack/decay/release-times. In terms of speed, i think they are more sloppy than the envelopes of a Rhodes Chroma. The manual of the mcv-24 also says that the built in LFO-ADSR-stuff is only a nice gimmick and by no means a replacement to their real analog counterparts.
