fuzz/crunch tone. It emulates the germanium diode
clipping used in the Distortion+, as well as the lo-fi

the interaction between the pedal and a guitar
pickup. 'Pickup' adds a low-pass filter on the
input and 'Buffered' removes this filter.

linear volume control on the input of the
effect. At maximum, the pedal acts as if 0dB =
2V, at half it acts as if 0dB = 1V, etc. This
goes all the way down to no input.
