FabFilter Saturn 2's interface is divided into multiple sections:
Interactive multi-band display
The interactive display lets you directly create and select
frequency bands. At the same time, it's a real-time frequency analyzer, visualizing the
outgoing signal and making it easy to decide where to set the band crossover frequencies.
The band controls control the settings of the
selected bands in the display. For each band, you can separately adjust the distortion type, drive, feedback
settings, dynamics, tone, level and mix settings.
When Linear Phase mode is enabled, both multi-band crossover filtering and internal oversampling
(High Quality mode) is done using linear phase filtering. See Input/output
The High Quality button controls the oversampling of the internal distortion algorithms, offering
Good and Superb modes. See Input/output options.
On the far right of the bottom bar, you can bypass the entire plug-in and the output button
gives access to the Unrestricted Feedback, Channel Mode and input/output/mix controls.
See Input/output options.
Resize and Full Screen mode
Using the Resize button at the right of the bottom bar, you can choose a desired
interface size. In addition, using the Full Screen button at the right top corner, you can
enter Full Screen mode, in which Saturn 2 fills the whole screen. See
Full Screen mode and resizing.
MIDI Learn lets you easily associate any MIDI controller with any plug-in parameter. See
Presets, undo, A/B, help
With the preset buttons, you can easily browse through the factory presets or save your own
settings so you can re-use them in other songs. The Undo, Redo, A/B and Copy buttons at the top
of the plug-in interface enable you to undo your changes and switch between different states of
the plug-in. Finally, the Help menu provides access to help and version information. See
