10x Grammy winner Manny Marroquin (Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, Lizzo, Future) isn't your ordinary mixing engineer, and this isn't your ordinary distortion. Parallel processing layers distortion that growls and teases instead of crushes—thicken digital synths, add grit to bass amps, toughen up drums, and more.

As Manny Marroquin says, "Whether or not it's audible, sometimes I just want to feel distortion." Now, you can feel—and hear—distortion that imparts a distinctive character to any sound.


  • Created with mix engineer Manny Marroquin (Kendrick Lamar, Lizzo).
  • 4 pre-distortion EQ stages focus on the frequencies to be saturated.
  • Excels at making synths sound less sterile, and fit better in mixes.
  • Beefs up drums for a bigger, more powerful sound.
  • Pre-distortion compressor shapes the dynamics.
  • Attack control determines how rapidly the distortion develops.
  • Release determines whether distortion lingers with note tails.
  • With subtle settings, makes vocals punch more than with a limiter.
  • Makes single-coil pickups sound less thin and more assertive.
  • The ideal fix when some sounds are just too "clean".
