I'd like to test the abilities of all the different distortion options on the market. I'm starting out with just a few, but this will continue in a later post. I'm testing the plugins on a Roland TR-909 kick, trying to get a distorted, gabber-style kick. There is a link to hear the sound under each picture.
Here is the original kick sound.
Dry 909 Kick
Not really for what we were trying to do, but interesting nonetheless.
This provides damn good distortion, but it isn't free.
This little guy really surprised me.
Here I simply turned the volume up too loud and got the clipping sound. You can do this one in audacity.
Tell me what you think and if you'd like me to continue comparing distortion effects.
