Drastically change sound with distortion effects

Here we will take a look at「distortion effects」.

From dramatic「distortion」on electric guitars,
to natural overdrive to create volume balance and dramatic-ism with「saturation」,
they can be used in a variety of music applications.

Saturation is applying small amounts of distortion,
to fatten and add character to the sound.

This is a great all-rounder that can be applied to all tracks.

When you feel your sound lacks pressure, try out this effect.
