Distortion II controls in Final Cut Pro
Distortion II emulates the distortion circuit of a Hammond B3 organ. You can use it on musical instruments to re-create this classic effect, or use it creatively when designing new sounds.
For information about adding the Distortion II effect to a clip and showing the effect’s controls, see Add Logic effects to clips in Final Cut Pro.
Pre Gain knob and field: Set the amount of gain applied to the input signal.
Drive knob and field: Set the amount of saturation applied to the signal.
Tone knob and field: Boost the integrated high shelf filter gain both pre- and post-distortion, to achieve a different tone.
Pop-up menu: Choose the type of distortion.
Growl: Emulates a two-stage tube amplifier similar to the type found in a Leslie 122 speaker cabinet, which is often used with the Hammond B3 organ.
Bity: Emulates the sound of a bluesy (overdriven) guitar amp.
Nasty: Produces hard distortion, suitable for creating very aggressive sounds.
Class AB soft: Emulates a softer crossover distortion encountered in transistorized amplifiers when driving a higher load.
Class AB hard: Emulates a harder crossover distortion encountered in transistorized amplifiers when driving a higher load.
Crossover, in this case, refers to switching between two matched transistors. In Class AB designs, both transistors remain on at all times, reducing the effect of hard switching between them.
