Great idea on the wet/dry split. Seems like it’d be a nice fit for davebrubaker’s ‘Power Of Three’ thread. Wet2 / Dry1 for HotSawz, Wet1 / Dry 2 on a 2nd H9, loaded with one of the 3 digi-stortion algorithms. I want to try that with a ‘hybrid’ series / parallel / series routing, to see how it all sums back to mono.
As for the single H9 dry / wet MIX, you can create some nice ‘distortions’ from HotSawz alone. Subtle, or not-so-subtle. MIX up the ‘harmonics’, tweak down the FILTER. Let it ‘bloom’ after the initial (dry) pick attack. Dial in some ‘finger vibrato’, or an amazing-sounding ‘Uni-Growl’ from sweeping detuned oscillators.
