The Aries Beast Distortion's circuit is configured by stacking two gain stages in cascade (or in series) mode. The first opamp gain stage (GAIN) does not utilize clipping diodes. It's fuller and more open sounding. The second opamp gain stage (DRIVE) incorporates asymmetrical MOSFET clipping diodes and is tighter and more compressed. Mixing the two results in many sonic combinations of true dirt pedal bliss.
