The term function generator can have two meanings in the world of synthesis. One, test equipment that generates waveforms such as sine or square waves are often called “function generators.” Two, envelope generators are sometimes referred to as “function generators.” In both cases, “function” means to execute an equation of some sort, such as creating a periodic waveform such as a sine or creating a rise & fall in response to a trigger.
