OverHeat Saturation is based on the natural distortion and compression that occurs when analog signals are pushed to their limits.

With its intuitive interface, this VST plugin is easy to use and offers a range of customizable parameters, such as input and output gain, saturation level, and tone shaping controls. You can use it to add subtle coloration to individual tracks or to create full-bodied analog warmth across an entire mix.

This analog saturation VST is suitable for a wide range of music genres and can be used on vocals, drums, guitars, bass, and synths, among others. Whether you're looking to add vintage vibe to your recordings or want to achieve a more cohesive and polished sound, this plugin is a must-have tool for any music producer or engineer.

In addition to its audio processing capabilities, this analog saturation VST is also optimized for low CPU usage, allowing it to be used on multiple tracks and even on a master bus without causing any performance issues. Its lightweight design makes it suitable for use on any digital audio workstation, including Logic Pro, Reaper, Ableton Live, and Cubase, among others.

Whether you're working on a new song, a film score, a podcast, or a commercial, this plugin can help you take your audio to the next level and give your recordings the warmth, richness, and depth they deserve.

OverHeat is modeled to emulate tube saturation principles wich usually ads offset before non-linear processing. It creates a more realistic and natural-sounding saturation effect. By modeling the harmonic content of the signal before it undergoes non-linear processing, the plugin is able to add harmonics in a more musical and pleasing way, enhancing the overall character and tonal quality of the sound. This results in a more expressive and dynamic sound that can add warmth, depth, and interest to digital recordings.
