Final Cut Pro X Logic Effects - Overdrive

background image


Overdrive emulates the distortion produced by a field effect transistor (FET), which is
commonly used in solid-state musical instrument amplifiers and hardware effects devices.
When saturated, FETs generate a warmer-sounding distortion than bipolar transistors,
such as those emulated by the Distortion effect.

Drive slider and field: Sets the saturation amount for the simulated transistor.

Distortion Effects

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 using Overdrive.
