Ya, but before you hear it, it enters the analogue world and frequency
response is limited. All of the hard sharp corners get modified. This
happens even digitally before the DAC as far as I know.
Even analogue there are many kinds of clipping, and to add to the mess
there is limiting as well... another kind of distortion that sounds less
distortion like :) One of the first distortion units I made was just two
diodes shorting off the peaks. It sounded very different from even a
transistor amp pushed too hard. Tube amps are different again.
