the distortion talked about here (clipping) is more about straight out loudness.. the usual way people do this type of clipping is to simply push a signal thats too hot through their converters (and hence chop off the top of all the big peaks)..

I got the idea from the first post he was talking about distortion more as something to add to the sound.. than simply a way to make it louder.. but contary to my own opinion.. I am sometimes wrong :p
