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.
