Top distortion plugs for synths 2019

Hi guys, what's everyone recommending for distortion plugins for synths these days?

The new logic phat and step effects are pretty good

The new "Distroyer" plugin in Cubase 10 is really good. I'm using it on a bassline i made with a Moog Grandmother. I'm sure there are lots of options. Heck, get the free Mercuriall tubescreamer plugin and give that a go. Hrmm maybe i'll try that...

I'm a studio one user so it rules out a couple suggestions, but ill grab that freebie and give it a whirl.

Any other suggestions are welcome too. thanks

I've actually had some very fun results from running synth and other keyboard sounds through Native Instruments Guitar Rig. The Fender Deluxe Reverb modeler sounds really nice and if you crank the gain it breaks up like crazy. The Plex and Vox models are great too. Technically I guess this is an overdrive effect rather than distortion but the end results are similar.

Same as usual - SDRR, Airwindows ToTape and IronOxide, decapitator, Ferox, Audio damage Fuzz, Bias Distortion pedal, any guitar amp modeler at hand... the list is long and the colors are very different.

Sountoys Decapitator. UAD Culture Vulture and VSM-3.

They each have their own brand of sweetness.

Add Ignite Amplification amps and stompboxes models - they are free but very good.

Im using Crush Pack from NI a lot lately, with the 3 plugins you get a very versatile range of textures.

There's a thread around here somewhere with some good stuff...I think it had the word "crazy" in the title. I'll post if I find.

This suggests to me “new” plugins, released most recently. In light of that, the one that comes to mind most is the Elysia Phil’s Cascade. Possibly the more grittier elements of Byome too.
