The Dirt Nap by Poison Noises is a DOD 250 style overdrive/distortion with added versatility.

The 250 distortion is one of my favorite distortion topologies, and the Dirt Nap doesn't disappoint.

It offers the same kind of compressed, preamp-like and bright distortion. I love it because it makes the guitar sit perfectly in a mix. The Dirt Nap offers more options for clipping modes and diodes, which makes it an even better recording tool to add variety to guitar overdubs in just one box.

And what I always find surprising: 250 style drives work very well on bass. The Dirt Nap tops this with a bass response toggle to open it up some more for lower frequencies.

Recording Notes

Guitar

Overdubs

Just the Stellarosa with different pickup settings and the Dirt Nap with different clipping/diode modes.

Bass

Drums

  • Logic Drummer Gavin (indie rock) on the Brooklyn+ kit
  • Compression from the Logic compressor plugin (Vintage FET)
  • Softube Saturation Knob plugin

The whole mix was "mastered" with exciter, limiter and mild compression in the DAW.
