I've been quite hesitant about Fab Saturn, thinking there might be better saturation/mb saturation out there (SGA Inferno? Black rooster's VPRE?) . But this new audiodeluxe deal seems really enticing. Should I grab it, or keep looking for alternative? (for whatever it's worth, I've also been reserved of soundtoys decapitator, even tho these 2 are among most highly regarded)

Definitely. FabFilter has some of the very best plugins with impeccable GUI and Saturn is no exception. Most revered saturator and incredibly versatile.

What's the hivemind's opinion on Orb Composer ? The Artist version is $89 on pluginboutique. Uncle E, any idea if you'll carry this promotion soon?

Saturn is $109 at Audiodeluxe now. That's why we're talking about it.

Thanks for the info.
Tempting but would not mind if I saved some $$$
Is $109 the lowest price ever?

In any case
FabFilter Saturn now $109.
The reviews are always good.

A good AI tool should work like a virtual collaborator, producing ideas that you can then adapt, change, develop. Having said that, there are currently no real good AI tools on the market that really allow you to do that. They are either not "intelligent" or have a tendency to take over entirely. Nobody has conquered the middle ground yet. ORB Composer is one of the better AI tools, maybe even the best. But it also lacks fine tuning flexibility. There is a fully functional demo you can try. With these types of tools it is really important that you play around with it before you buy. They tend to have a bit of a learning curve.

$109 isn't close to the lowest price ever. I think I paid something like $60 for it a few years back.
A well-behaved signature.

How does PSP BussPressor stands against The Glue or other SSL compressor emulations?
Is it that good?

There was definitely a 1/2 sale for Saturn within the past couple of years. So, that would be about $75 (plus perhaps extra discounts at retailers?). Haven't seen that deal since then.

I don't have the cytomic plugin, so I can't say much about it. I can tell you that I have the waves SSL G comp, I also have (or had, I sold it) Townhouse from PluginAlliance, I also have Vertigo VSC-2, Slate FG-Grey, Klanghelm MJUC, Kotelnikov and many, many other ones. I usually end up using the PSP one, at times Klanghelm and at times Kotelnikov.

I don't know much about the Waves ones specifically, but if you're looking for a good, inexpensive saturator, EndeavorFX Contemporary Color (thread here) is very nice and on sale for $29 through the end of September. That one is on the more subtle side and is excellent for adding fuzz at particular frequencies. For a solid meat-and-potatoes saturator, Klanghelm SDRR is also a great deal for €23.
