Saturating sound with the Wave Shaper

So the way we can add some more harmonics and saturation to the sound is to use the Waveshaper, so we've got that up here, and I can go ahead and turn it on. First, I actually want to adjust our sound setting. I want something that's going to sustain a little more than this impulse, so I'm going to set Object1 to GravityStrike and adjust the Strength here, and bring down the Media Loss and the Inner Loss so that it really rings out. (music playing) Okay, there we go.

So the Waveshaper is on, and I have three different parameters. I have Input Scale, I have the Waveshaper type, and then I have Variation. The Input Scale adjusts the level going into the Waveshaper, and that's going to affect how the wave shaping responds. In the center we have the Type, so this is the type of wave shaping, and there are four different types. And then Variation parameter works differently depending on what type of wave shaping we're using. If we are using the soft saturation, tube distort...
