FabFilter Saturn is my new favorite plug-in. I love distortion and I'll put it on everything from vocals to 808's.

In addition, you also get three creative distortion styles, with which you can your sounds in weird and unexpected ways.smudge, stretch, crush, rectify and clip

With its multiband design and per-band feedback, dynamics, drive, tone and modulation options, Saturn will bring a unique flavor to your music.

Bring your sounds to life

Using Saturn's extensive modulation section, you can really bring life and depth to your music. By applying subtle modulation to crossover frequencies, dynamics, band levels or tone controls, great warmth and definition can be achieved.

With all the XLFOs, EGs, XY controllers, envelope followers and MIDI sources you will ever need, you get practically unlimited modulation possibilities. Creating new modulation connections could not be easier: just drag and drop.
