In this article, we will be surveying the area of distortion synthesis, using the Csound language to provide tutorial examples of the different techniques. The text will discuss various methods from the classic algorithms to newer approaches. The article will concentrate on less well-known techniques as well as more recent developments, which have been less often explored in the literature. The main aims of the article are to provide a general overview of the area with some tutorial implementations of various correlate techniques.
