Product details

The Distortion is a versatile distortion effect with a wide selection of algorithms.

  • Mode - The flavor of distortion. Select between overdrive, saturate, foldback, sine and hard clip.
  • Drive - The drive setting will boost the input signal, causing a heavier distortion.
  • Dynamics - A common problem with distortion is that it can remove the dynamic content of the input signal, forcing the output to maximum volume. Turn up this knob to preserve the dynamics of the input.
  • Bias - The bias will add a DC offset to the signal before distorting. Adding some bias can prevent the distorted audio from sounding hollow and uninteresting.
  • Spread - The spread will add different amount of bias to the left and right channels. This can give some nice and subtle stereo widening.
  • Mix - The dry/wet mix of this effect. A lower value will let some of the unmodified signal through.
