I thought this was Wendy's, where's my tall shake?

On the 32 bit rdistortion if I run a wav through it in Savihost then boost the 2 knobs at the left and as well as the output volume it breaks and then cpu goes to 50%.

I'm not finished with my burger yet

You might have to load it in Savihost to access this special feature.

It was better than the Eplex7 one though.

Here is RDistortion (64-bit, windows-10, Reaper 6.14) very stable.
No crash, only smoothly working. :)

My rating for RDistortion:

amp r-distortion 02.gif

Works well: Slight distortion, easily adjustable due
to the LP and HP filters, I like type "E" best.

Very good for clean guitars: it makes them distinctive
and adds the smoothness you'd expect from guitar
amps.

CPU load: So medium, but also sounds pretty good.

Good: Sound, GUI clearly arranged, nice knobs,
dll-file made available for download (no installation
needed). :tu:

Bad: With A, B, C, D, E a lot of types. The two
best would be better and clearer here. :P

Valuation: ++ :tu:

I'd say: Mr. Rems, well done! :clap:

As you can see in the rating, I like RDistortion. :)

But I have a little

---- suggestion for improvement ----

Whenever I turn the "Pre-G." button up, I have to turn down
the "Post-G." button about the same amount. So I always have
to turn both buttons simultaneously, but in opposite directions.

So how about combining "Pre-G." and "Post-G." into a single
button
? You could then call it "Gain", for example. You can
still control the overall volume with the "Out G.".

That would make RDistortion a lot easier to use. And - in the
sense of the DC2021, it would not, strictly speaking, be a
function update (not allowed) but a GUI update (allowed).
