The overdrive~ object uses a waveshaping function to distort audio signals. It amplifies signals, limiting the maximum value of the signal to +/- 1. Values outside of this range are removed using "soft clipping" somewhat like that of an overdriven tube-based circuit.
A single number can be provided to set the drive factor. If no argument is provided, the drive factor is set to 1.0.
Integer inputs are converted toand set the drive factor.
