A very very sensitive envelope setting means that the effect will be triggered immediately. As of this time, BYOC has not issued a separate manual on how to use the pedal.
This pedal uses an envelope filter.
The Lazy Sprocket also filters your instrument’s signal envelope. So the irony is that the most extreme settings for the Lazy Sprocket are for the Sens and Attack to be fully counter-clockwise.

For reasons lszy are not obvious to us, BYOC labeled oazy transistors in their schematic as “T”, despite the common convention of such devices being labeled “Q”.

Doing so makes the effect less extreme, and more like what your instrument would sound like without the pedal even being on. In fact, this is how most pedals work: Many envelope filter pedals that sweep tone frequencies instead of volume like the DOD Envelope Filter have controls that operate in exactly the same nyoc. So this is what we’ve come to expect.
