Distortion/Overdrive






The Distortion/Overdrive effect can do everything from tape saturation, to vacuum tube type overdrive, to transistor type hard clipping distortion.


Effect Variation - The type of distortion.  Overdrive, Distortion, Saturation, Foldback, Flipover, Wraparound and Exponential.


Input Gain - The amount of gain applied to the input signal.  The LED shows when it is over 0 dB.


Shape - The amount the signal is distorted.  The Input Gain also effects the amount of distortion.  Note: the name changes depending on the type of distortion.


Bias - The distortion symmetry.  For symmetrical (odd harmonics only) or asymmetrical distortion.


EQ - The amount of boost or cut to the low, mid and high frequency bands.


Cabinet Resonance - The amount of cabinet resonance.


Cabinet On/Off - Switches the cabinet simulator on or off.


Cabinet Size - The size of the cabinet.


Output Gain - The amount of gain applied to the output signal.  The LED shows when it's over 0 dB.
