Have a few very, very nice Kontakt librarys, but somehow they sound need a little......help.
I want them to sound a little more warm, deeper, more solid and richer.

How to achieve this?
May be, which plugin to use to have it, at least a little bit:)

Thanks for your help

I’d recommend kelvin by tone projects.

try this. not an EQ, not saturation, but harmonic additions

you can try "Space Networks Mastering" : https://www.kvraudio.com/product/space- ... -by-wavdsp

you have too "intensity" from zynaptiq , but it's very expensive : https://www.zynaptiq.com/intensity/

The way I interpret your sonic desires (chuckle)...

"Warm" = EQ
"Deeper" = EQ / Reverb / Delay
"Solid" = Compression
"Richer" = Saturation / Stereo Enhancement

You have been around since 2004 so I am assuming you know all this.

My favs...

EQ: Crave, SonEQ 2, various Acustica
Reverb: Blackhole, Liquidsonics everything, Silver
Delay: Pulsar Echorec, Replika XT, EchoMelt, Eko (GuDa)
Compression: FirComp, The Glue, Pro-C
Saturation: Spectre, Big Al, Saturn 2, PSP Saturator
Stereo Enhancement: Ozone Imager (Multi-band, not the freebie), FireMaster, Mongoose

If you're brave, post some audio clips for more detailed advice.

Make awesome music and have a great weekend :)

Agree with the post above, that has much more to do with sound choice, arrangement, eq and spatial fx than one plugin.

Making use of lowpass filters and only having a few brighter sounds can do a lot for the density and cohesion of a mix.

I do like airwindows tape for adding body and smoothing things out a bit. But I find that eq/volume has far more reach than that or any other plugin in my experience.

Strap a second-hand Alesis MicTube Duo or similar on your 2 bus.

On paper, a lot of those adjectives could be achieved by adding a low-shelf with even-order saturation. Spectre can do this easily, or the free (but Windows-only) ThrillseekerXTC.

But I'm a little suspicious because these are adjectives that make things sound "better" individually but not necessarily fit into a mix as well.

Choice of synth to start with is important.

Saturate/Overdrive low mids for example - this can be done with whatever internal tools DAW has. Just bandlimit needed area with EQ (fex. 80-200) and mix to taste into original signal.

But first the mix must be good too :)
Soft Knees - Demoscene - Live 10 - Diva - Omnisphere - Slate Digital VSX - TDR - Kush Audio - Fabfilter - PA - Valhalla - Fuse - Pulsar - NI - OekSound etc...

A little high-shelf cut (with any eq) can do wonders on many Kontakt libraries.
More BPM please

saturation is the most unused effect when you are new to production, it is really abused by most

Flower Child Filter with your own settings to taste, works great on guitar, on reverbs play with pre-delay, delays add depth

Try an analog modeled channel strip like one of the bx_consoles or Waves SSL EV2, and a tape simulator, like the IK T-RackS Tape Machines.
