Hey guys,

Just after watching that Icicle master class, was probably the best one I've seen so far! Especially for someone like me - who's still wet behind the ears. :)

Anyhoo, I was wondering if anyone can recommend a nice "gain type" of distortion vst . I liked the one Icicle was using in Logic, that sounded very cool, But unfortuntely I don't use Logic. :(

Some of my vst distortions sound pretty digital and don't have that nice clean but heavy overdriven sound.

Any recommendations?

Thanks in advance!

Rob.

Thanks man, I have Ohmicide/Camelphat and they are friggin' cool, but it's a lil' bit harsh at times.

Anything else worth checking out for trying to capture that "mackie desk" type gain?

Cheers,

Rob.

+1 camelphat.

For mild saturation (breaks, synth lines etc) I go for PSP mixsaturator

Soundtoys Decapitator is awesome, sounds like something you'd be interested in. Its got 5 model types at the bottom of the vst, the last 2 being modelled on the Culture Vulture, very cool!
