I’m trying to determine what a overdrive module like trogotronic m277 would offer me in terms of sound.
I have listened to some demos, but I’m curious about your opinions.
I have these modules:
From what I’ve gathered, I can use the following modules, in my case, for overdrive:
- Shelves: Analog overdrive (https://www.muffwiggler.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=128012)
- Warps: The modulator amplitude overdrives (https://mutable-instruments.net/modules/warps/)
And these for distortion:
- Ears: Distortion through IN (Okay to use EARS for distortion?)
- Veils: Distortion from clipping (and dialing down) the amplitude (https://stevetravale.com/build-diary-7-veils-mutable-instruments/)
(I also have Streams (where the LEVEL MOD controls are routed to the amplitude control port of the VCFAs) and Ripples (which has a VCA but “progressively compresses” values above +5V, which I’m not quite sure what it means), but I’m not sure if that’s relevant here. Finally, there is a DRIVE control (although no CV) in the Stereo Dipole filter.)
What is your experience with “dedicated” overdrive modules? In your opinion, how much difference do they make from modules such as the ones I’m mentioning above, in my case?
Thanks a lot!
