And a Clip Distortion setting would be great too and one of my bug bears in Reason, put the damn parameters in readings that actually mean something to the parameter you're tweaking if backwards compatability isn't an issue in doing so.
I will Google but what is oversampling and what would it give Scream?
EDIT - So oversampling removes aliasing. Can you personally hear the aliasing can you?
Yes, you can definitely hear aliasing.
When any frequency (which could be a harmonic of a tone such as a sawtooth) is higher than half the sample rate (the Nyquist frequency), it will result in producing a tone at a different frequency.
For example, if your sample rate is 100, a tone at 60 comes out as 40, as does a tone at 140, 160, 240 and 260. You will hear that as tones that aren't harmonics.
Distortion effects add harmonics, and some of those harmonics will be higher than the Nyquist frequency. The same thing happens with FM and regular synthesis, but at least with the reproduction of a basic tone, there are tricks to eliminate the harmonics (such as blep).
Oversampling removes aliasing by simply operating at a higher sampling rate, applying a step filter, and then downsampling back to the sampling rate. You'll see many Waves plugins state a higher internal sampling rate in their specifications. That is oversampling.
For scream it just means better distortion effects with less aliasing.
