Besides waveshaping / wavetable-lookup distortion, which provides the
closest resemblance to analog distortion and has been discusses here
already, there are also some other types. I would recommend trying out
the following LADSPA plugins to get an idea of the different sounds:
$ listplugins | grep dist
Crossover distortion (1404/crossoverDist)
Foldover distortion (1213/foldover)
Chebyshev distortion (1430/chebstortion)
Pointer cast distortion (1910/pointerCastDistortion)
Google and perhaps the Music-DSP list could provide you with more
detailed information about each of the techniques. Personally, I use
[plugin~] and a combination of Crossover and Foldover distortion, but
this results in a huge DC offset that needs to be corrected (from the
