According to the description on the Waves website, their engineers “began by collecting a large array of well-loved distortion units of all types: amps, tube devices, stomp boxes, and old analog units. They then developed original custom wave shapes based on their all-time favorite distortion curves.”
The Waves Berzerk Distortion plugin has 10 different presets: Buzzed, Frenzy, Crushed, Trippy, Squashed, Loony, Dizzy, Freaky, Clipped, and Fuzzed. Each of these presets has its own personality, which will transform the sound by adding different grit, character, dirt, and other elements “that will blow your head off.” I already know that these presets are going to make my life so much easier!
As more people move towards doing more and more in-the-box – and not just mixing, but using virtual instruments as well – plugins like these are great tools to have! When virtual instruments first came into existence, everyone loved that all of a sudden they could get the absolute best sounding guitar or piano right on their computer. But as virtual instruments became more and more common, all of a sudden everyone had the best sounding instruments, so people began looking for ways to make these virtual instruments sound more exciting and unique! The Waves Berzerk Distortion plugin is the perfect plugin for that!
Along with all of the presets, the Berzerk plugin has a “Go Berzerk!” button that I know everyone will have fun using! This button creates random variations in each waveshape, which lets you personalize the signal. and then you can turn the Density knob to shift the waveshape in amplitude.
