Distortion controls in Final Cut Pro
The Distortion effect simulates the lo-fi, dirty distortion generated by a bipolar transistor. You can use it to simulate playing a musical instrument through a highly overdriven amplifier, or to create unique distorted sounds.
For information about adding the Distortion effect to a clip and showing the effect’s controls, see Add Logic effects to clips in Final Cut Pro.
Drive knob and field: Set the amount of saturation applied to the signal.
Tone knob and field: Set the frequency for the high cut filter. Filtering the harmonically rich distorted signal produces a softer tone.
Output knob and field: Set the output level.
Level Compensation button: Turn on to reference the overall processing of the signal to 0 dB. This compensates for increases in loudness caused by adding distortion.
Display: Shows the impact of parameters on the signal.
