Hi All,

A while back (over a year ago) I emailed this list with a distortion plugin
that I created. I have since taken some of the feedback on board, and
released an update. There are now two plugins, SI-D1, which is the one I
made last year, which now has 2x upsampling but is otherwise the same, and
SI-D2 which uses tanh to give a softer edge to the clipping (also with 2x

The release is on github:

I welcome any thoughts and suggestions. For the next version I am going to
add LPF and HPF filters, before and after the main effect. Who knows when
that will be!
