Best Distortion VSTHello Composers! Mike here, with a quick guide on the Best Distortion VST Plugins. =)

The Distortion Effect (or Saturation Effect) is a fundamental tool in music production. And it comes in many shapes and forms, from analog and warm saturation and channel strips, to fat distortion modules, to dirty waveshapers.

They all change and boost the harmonics in any sound you add it to, from subtle to extreme, based on your creative choices. All in all, the distortion effect is almost like “hot sauce”…once you tasted it, you simply want to put it on everything.

But which Distortion VST Plugins should you choose? Well, here is my complete list of recommendations for you (in no particular order):
