I don't know about that - seemed pretty slow in my Code 8 which was less than 6 months old
I have had some units which are pretty fast -
Minimoog, sub 1ms
SH2 around 1ms
JP8 pretty fast, I'd say around 1ms
A6 around 2ms but can be shaped to sound slightly faster
Code seemed a lot slower than all of them, and others like the Juno 106, Mks-80 - probably the slowest synth here, or maybe on par with my X0Xb0X TB-303 clone
Only way to get a semblance of snap is to invert the envelope, which is what I did in a lot of my demos.
There is always a "wonk" with a positive envelope, and high envelope modulation, instead a "thwarp"
Even then, the VCA envelope will still be slow.
