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.
• 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.
