FabFilter Saturn 2 Help
FabFilter Saturn 2's top section consists of a large interactive multi-band display, which makes it very easy to create and select frequency bands and adjust their level and drive settings. At the same time, it's also a real-time frequency analyzer.
To add a new frequency band, simply click on the small '+' button that appears at the top of the display when you move the mouse here. By clicking this button, the current frequency band splits with a crossover frequency at the current mouse position. The new band will copy its settings from the band that has just been split.
If only one band is active, it will be selected by default and the band controls control the settings of this single band. Once you have multiple frequency bands available, the display highlights the level buttons of the selected bands and the band controls are linked to these bands. In the screen shot above, the middle band is selected. In addition, the band controls will slide underneath the selected band.
Tip: About everything in the display can be modulated, even the cross-over splits. Simply drag and drop a modulation source to it!
If you hover the mouse over the top of the display and there is more than one band, small solo and mute buttons in the left-top corner of each band will appear. The solo button lets you listen to a single band, while the mute button does the opposite and mutes the band, letting you hear all other bands. Of course, you can solo or mute multiple bands at the same time, just like with tracks in your DAW.
Solo and mute changes can be automated and are saved with the other parameters, so you can also use them for creative effects.
