Device Overview

Name/Version: Tanh Distortion 1.0

Description: Hi,

This is a stereo, 3-band (Low/Med/Hi), Hyperbolic Tangent distortion effect. The incoming signal (x, in the formula) gets split into Low, Medium and High frequencies. The Center knob controls the Center of the Medium frequency and the Narrowness knob defines the cutoffs for the Low and High pass filters

The left and right channel of each band has a dedicated Tanh distortion effect. In the formula, G is the input Gain, while a and b are some strange parameters to mess with.

Each band has mute and solo buttons (Thanks to dude837).

Because it can get extremely loud I decided to put a bypassable compressor on the output. Because I'm such a chicken, turning off the compressor lowers the output volume by 20db (turning it back on raises it back to 0db).

The Dry/Wet knob mixes the undistorted, uncompressed input with the distorted and possibly compressed output.
