Buy a real guitar pedal, a bad cheap one... behringer super fuzz 300, for instance. Everything about it is just f**king nasty... or if you want to go upscale nasty, there you go...

Ohmicide is my favorite. But even with it and trash 2 I somehow found a reason to acquire kombinat by audio damage and it’s pretty cool.

Thanks for posting this, here are the product links for my distortion plug-in:
Disto::FX PRO
https://www.kvraudio.com/product/disto- ... -distocore
Disto::FX FREE
https://www.kvraudio.com/product/disto- ... -distocore

Both designed for hardcore kicks, but might be also useful for guitar riffs, bass- and synth-lines.

F-1 Complex Distortion Pedal


ever wondered what would happen if you deliberately destroyed your tube amp? now you can blow it up, every day, all day long. without actually damaging anything.

the f-1 pedal uses a unique vacuum-tube pentode circuit to do something special: it simulates the extreme distortion, parasitic oscillations, and other unique sounds that come from a tube guitar amp that is being overdriven to flaming destruction.

there's only one knob to adjust, and it only needs one knob.

"complex distortion" varies the plate loading on the two pentodes to give asymmetrical distortion, and it varies the feedback effects—all on one knob. a vast cornucopia of sound effects, from mild vacuum-tube warmth to berserk torturous screaming violence, is just a knob-turn away.

it's hand-made, in california, by real people. and there's nothing else even vaguely like the f-1, in any form.

no one else can do it.

Melda distortions are fantastic (free plugins). For more expensive options, Ohmicide.
