    336          Over time, the chip interpolates between the points of the
    337          envelopes drawn in the MIDAS VII instrument editor.
     336         The firmware feeds the the points of the envelopes drawn in
     337         the MIDAS VII instrument editor to the function generator,
     338         which then interpolates between them.
