Distortion Box

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:

  1. Clip – Controls the amount of gain applied to the signal. You can choose from SoftHardFold.
    • Soft: Clipping in which the signal is reduced when it hits a threshold (in a similar manner as a limiter).
    • Hard: Clipping in which a signal is cut off when it hits a threshold. This creates distortion with higher frequencies.
    • Fold: Foldback distortion, which is caused by a signal being inverted when it hits a certain threshold.
  2. Overdrive – Controls the amount of gain applied to the signal.
  3. Crunch – Applies distortion with more emphasis on the high frequencies.
  4. HP/LP: If the signal becomes too bottom or high heavy due to extreme distortion, use this filter to mold the distortion to your liking.

FL Studio users: If you hear too much distortion when using the Clip distortion (to the point where the signal is still distorting at 0% wetness), we recommend the following:

  1. Open Detailed Settings by clicking the cog icon in the top left corner of the plugin wrapper
  2. Select VST wrapper settings
  3. Enable Use fixed-size buffers
  4. Select Yes at the prompt
