Also waveshaping provides a good distortion effect with variable sound, 
from warm valve overdrive to digital violence. The basic idea is 
remapping the signalvalues according to a stored table. Just take a 
table and tabread object and pass through the signal. If the table 
contains linear data like this / (starting in the lower corner and 
getting to upper left) it shouldn't alter your signal but when you paint 
somthing different it starts getting wild.

Other nice distortions are ringmodulation and bitreduction..
