    is it possible to apply distortion to a sound without it totally destroying the dynamics and note velocities i have spent hours getting just right?

    Nah. Yer fucked mate, might as well bin it and take up knitting. Nice jumper.

    (Sorry sorry)
    Suppose it depends how much distortion you've put on, and whether its still editable. If it is try less distortion, cos distortion will naturally boost the level and introduce lots of compression. However if you've rendered it with disto on and lost the original then I guess its knitting for you....

    so basically its a case of finding the happy medium, thought as much. why cant they put the dist before the amp envelope? that would sort out the problem right there. this is why i wanna buy reaktor, cos then i can put the distortion before the amp envelope :punk:

    have you tried synth edit? Okay it's not a touch on Reaktor, but it's free :Smile3: You could do this there.

    resample your synth note, distorted as you choose

    if your using vsti, nice on the processor too

    then you can add filters and amp envelopes and whatever you want after the distrtion

    use kontakt, its the.
