What's the difference between using a normal filter and distorting and a filter-with-embedded distortion? Massive has a something called a scream filter which I've seen used a lot. I'm too cheap to buy Massive, but in Synthmaster, for every filter there is optional distortion, with options to distort before, after and inside the filter. I'm guessing that inside the filter is the equivalent of Massive's scream filter, but why would you distort inside the filter instead of just adding distortion at the end? Is it just some useless extra feature they put in cause it sounds impressive?
