TOPIC: Fuzz Effect Guitar Pedal

Fuzz Effect Guitar Pedal 4 months 2 weeks ago #867

This code is very similar to the Distortion Effect, the concept is the same:
In a distortion effect when the guitar signal goes above (or below) a certain level (threshold) the signal gets "clipped". In this Fuzz the signal instead of clipping gets the maximum value. The image below explains this concept clearly:

This results in a more aggressive and deep distortion.

The effects happens with the line of code:
if (input_signal > 2047 + fuzz_value) input_signal= 4095;
if (input_signal < 2047 - fuzz_value) input_signal= 0;
