Misstortion is a free and open source distortion plugin for VST-based hosts. It does its best to be like Logic's Clip Distortion, which makes it very useful for the Hardstyle genre:

  • Hard clip: Simple hard clip distortion.
  • Soft clip: Hyperbolic soft clip distortion.
  • Symmetry: Make your waveform asymmetrical for more finetuned distortion.

It's free. It runs on Windows and Mac DAWs, both 32-bit and 64-bit, so there's no need to bridge them by hand. It's also open source. There's also a Nimble Tools Discord for more info and support.

Huge thanks to Code Black and Headhunterz for the very helpful feedback, and Kimmykix aka Jacknife for the initial idea.

Note: For Linux (LV2) support, check out this fork on Github.

The best Logic Clip Distortion clone I've used. All the standard controls are there: soft and hard clipping, a 1/2-pole high pass before and a low pass after, and the all-important asymmetry parameter. It sounds great. The separate soft and hard clipping allow for a lot of control. I don't think Logic Clip Distortion is anything special, it's just common, but this plugin is definitely a fantastic emulation. This plugin, a parametric EQ, and a 909 synth are all you need to get started making hardstyle and hardcore kicks. You can make many kick. Such kick.
