Saturation Knob is the analog sounding, simple to use, yet versatile way of adding some sweet distortion to your tracks. The knob itself controls the amount of saturation, and there are three different distortion characteristics to choose from by flicking the switch.

With the switch set to Neutral, the entire frequency spectrum of the sound gets distorted when you turn up the Saturation knob. Put it on Keep Low, and the saturation will mainly affect the lower part of the frequency spectrum, while the top end stays clear. Conversely, with Keep High selected, the low end will retain its clear sound and instead only the treble parts of the sound will get distorted. This makes a wide variety of distortion characteristics available to you.

Now I have an unnecessary account and still no saturation knob. The website does not work properly. And then about i lock. It really doesn't get any more complicated than that.

One of the best free saturation plugins out there. Sounds good, simple to use & its free. Another must had in your plugin arsenal.

It's a decent plugin by itself. Crunchy, analog-style saturation that can be applied to either the high or low end. What annoys me is the absolutely gigantic installer (over 100MB). Instead of just giving you the .dll, you have to go through and untick every limited demo they try to give you as well. Use Klevgrand FreeAMP or SGA1566 instead.

You can pull the DLL out of the installer by opening it with a file archiver like 7-zip or WinRAR.

You can no longer pull the DLL out of the installer. Everything has to be installed, including their proprietary Licencing software.

A mix and master output option would be a bonus.

This installer is small compared to IK Multimedia's T-RackS 5. over 3GB.
