The Soundblox 2 Multiwave Bass Distortion features both multi band and single band processing. Multi band processing splits the input signal into ten distinct frequencies bands, distorts each one separately then recombines them for the final output signal. The effect is a crisp distortion with superior low-end preservation and note articulation.
Single band processing employs a more conventional approach, applying a single distortion element to the entire signal. The processing categories are further broken down into three subcategories: Normal, for a more traditional distortion curve, Foldback, for an aggressive, synth-like fuzz and Octave, for unique octave-up distortion effects.
