The Distortion Box is a module with 3 different distortion types: Clip, Overdrive, and Crunch. These introduce different types of harmonic distortion and frequencies for mild or extreme effects.
Distortion Box Controls:
- Clip: Controls the amount of gain applied to the signal. You can choose from Soft, Hard, and Fold.
- Soft: Clipping in which the signal is reduced once it hits a threshold (similar to a Limiter).
- Hard: Clipping in which a signal is cut off once it hits a threshold. This creates distortion with pronounced higher frequencies.
- Fold: Foldback distortion, in which a signal is folded back onto itself once it hits a certain threshold.
- Overdrive: Controls the amount of gain applied to the signal.
- Crunch: Applies distortion with more emphasis on the high frequencies.
- HP/LP: High Pass/Low Pass filter allows you to shape the tone of the distortion.
FL Studio users: If unwanted Clip distortion occurs at 0% wetness, we recommend the following:
- Open Detailed Settings by clicking the cog icon in the top left corner of the plugin wrapper.
- Select VST wrapper settings.
- Enable Use fixed-size buffers.
- Select Yes at the prompt.
