OpAmp (Operational amplifier)
This mode models the behaviour of an overdriven OpAmp chip.
HalfRect (Half Rectifier)
This type of distortion allows through only the top half of the input signal's waveform.
The Drive control adjusts the amount of distortion applied to the signal.
Input Filter, Dirty, Clean, Tone
These controls function in exactly the same way as those on the Distortion effect device.
Increase the control to intensify attack transients and to make drum sounds punch through the mix harder.
Decrease the control to soften transients. This can be particularly useful on percussion sounds and on one of two linked Drums.
The Sustain control adjusts the intensity of release portions of detected transients in the audio. This effectively increases or decreases the apparent sustain of sounds in the signal.
Increasing the control results in more sustain - useful for intensifying the natural reverb in BFD3's sounds. It is particularly suited to making room ambience sound huge.
Decrease the control for less sustain and making ambience appear more 'dry'. At higher settings it can produce damping effects for drum sounds.
Use the Gain control to adjust the level of the signal as needed after the Env Shaper's dynamic processing.
