it does have a "Dist" function and you can lower your gain with it pretty much. if you want to know my settings for metal and classicrock:
metal: - Level to half (5)
- Low to half ( 5 )
- High to a kwarter ( 2.5 )
- Mid Freq to just over a half ( 5.5 )
- Dist to max ( 10 )
and for a rock-sound I use the same settings but decrease my Dist to 2.5 or 3. just find out what you think is enough gain.
and don't forget to use good reverb!
