Z.Vex designed this new distortion generator with some different limitations. Machine is actually a dual frequency-tripler circuit that uses crossover distortion for the first time in any pedal, ever. It distorts when your guitar string is in the middle of vibrating, while it's swinging, not as it's turning around. Hence, it is extremely complimentary when used in conjunction with your other favourite pedals. That's the same place where your speaker cone is coasting, between all the way in and all the way out. Where nothing is happening, this pedal happens. With Machine you can leave your favourite distorting pedals on and still add a new element of energetic grind.

The lively response is higher than most pedals. If you put a tremolo pedal set smooth in front of it you'll hear it sweep through its wild frequency multiplying stages, or if the Trem is set for square wave it will jump back and forth between crunchy harmonics. Equally, you can get ringing harmonic effects using a dynamically freezing pedal in front of it like a compressor.

Knobs are in, which is drive; Limit, which clips the original waveform off at about the same size as the harmonics; and Out or Volume, which is output level. If the Limit knob is set to the right, the signal remains unclipped. Keep in mind that this pedal needs to see a sloped wave in order to do its thing, so an undistorted guitar signal going into it will allow it to generate the strongest harmonics.
