bx_console N - Where is the Distortion?

Just doing some more testing with the bx_console N.

If I input a sine wave, crank up the THD "screw", and then run the output into SPAN I'm not seeing any harmonics being generated.

Am I missing something here?

Any chance another console N user could check this?

Have you tried cranking the input?

But I remember Brainworx saying that the saturation of the desk was not very pleasant, so they didn't modeled it. But I guess some level of harmonic should exist nonetheless.

I may be wrong about that, tho.

It has a THD "screw". From the manual:

THD (NEW Feature for the N update!)
Adds colorful Saturation and Density (on a per channel basis). The default setting is -60dB. Use higher settings (up to -30 dB) for almost screaming distortion, or dial down the Saturation to -120 dB for ultra-clean channels.
