Ever since mankind invented music, there has been a desire to make it heavier. Distortion can take your sound from zero to sword wielding hero in seconds.

5 different distortion shapes are available to add a tinge of edge or rip things apart. In stereo, if that's what you're into.

Drive knob

The drive setting will boost the input signal, causing a heavier distortion.

Bias knob

The bias will add a DC offset to the signal before distorting. Adding some bias can prevent the distorted audio from sounding hollow and uninteresting.

Spread knob

The spread will add different amount of bias to the left and right channels. This can give some nice and subtle stereo widening.

Type

The flavor of distortion. Select between overdrive, saturate, foldback, sine and hard clip.

Dynamics

A common problem with distortion is that it can remove the dynamic content of the input signal, forcing the output to maximum volume. Turn up this knob to preserve the dynamics of the input.

Mix knob

The dry/wet mix of this effect. A lower value will let some of the unmodified signal through.

Settings panel

Whenever you have your mouse cursor over a snapin there is a small arrow at the top right corner (not visible in screenshot). It opens a settings panel where you handle presets.

It also has a "randomize" button that can be useful. I guess...

Enabled checkbox

The small checkbox to the left of the plugin name is a checkbox that bypasses the effect when disabled.

Resize handle

The bottom right corner of all Kilohearts plugins is a resize handle for scaling the UI to any size. This allows you to get a good view of the controls whatever the screen resolution, and also comes in handy if you need big controls, e.g. when using Distortion as a real-time effect on a touchscreen monitor during a live set. (This is not available when the snapin is used inside a snapin host.)

Distortion is a snapin

Kilohearts plugins work great together, and all the snapins can work double duty as modular components inside our snapin hosts. There are several different hosts that allow you to apply any number of snapins in various contexts, like to each individual band in the band-splitter Multipass, or add your full effects chain right inside the preset of the synth Phase Plant.

"I'm really addicted to Distortion right now. It's so f*****g good." - Gramatik
