Distortion Effect

The Distortion effect simulates the lo-fi, dirty distortion generated by a bipolar transistor. You can use it to simulate playing a musical instrument through a highly overdriven amplifier, or to create unique distorted sounds.

  • Drive slider and field: Sets the amount of saturation applied to the signal.
  • Display: Shows the impact of parameters on the signal.
  • Tone knob and field: Sets the frequency for the high cut filter. Filtering the harmonically rich distorted signal produces a softer tone.
  • Output slider and field: Sets the output level. This allows you to compensate for increases in loudness caused by adding distortion.
