Distortion

Hey all

Anyone have any good distortion vsts to recommend? I'm specifically looking for something that simulates an overdrive pedal, but am always happy with other phat distorts.

Cheers

I don't have any experience using overdrive pedals, but a couple general distortion suggestions:

If you use Ableton, you should definitely check out their Amp plugin. That thing is all over all of my productions, definitely my favorite distortion unit. They actually have a stock Overdrive plugin, as well as a Saturation stock plugin which are both pretty nice.

Other than that, I really like Predatohm. Beware if you want to use it in stereo mode though, it can cause some nasty phasing issues if summed back to mono later on.

iZotope Trash 2 is popular and pretty good, it's flexible and has some nice multi-band capabilities.

If you're using FL Studio, you can try Hardcore. It combines multiple effects and is mostly used for guitar (I think), however, I experiment a lot with it on different sounds. It can give you some interesting results.

I would recommend FabFilter Saturn.

Ableton Live 9, Tascam US4x4 Audio Interface, Akai APC Key 25, JBL LSR305s, & Pioneer HRM-07s
