    In what way? Traditional distortion, like a "fuzzy" guitar is done by overdriving the signal but Hitfilm doesn't have that type of Distortion effect. The "Shortwave Radio" effect is about as close as Hitfilm gets.

    This tutorial is for an older version of Hitfilm, but, other that adding voice over recording directly in Hitfilm, nothing has changed since this video was made, and it does go over all Hitfilm's audio effects.

    That said, Hitfilm's audio handling is its weakest area. It's functional (and the Doppler Shift effect is awesome), but just functional.

    For hardcore audio editing you're better off exporting your audio using a WAV preset, editing in a dedicated audio program and importing the audio back to Hitfilm.

    Audacity is a great free choice.
