The Dutch software maker FabFilter has launched Saturn, a multi-band distortion effect. This is certainly not a normal distortion unit, the possibilities are enormous. Saturn has a large number of distortion and saturation effects which you can apply to different frequencies. These frequencies can be set with just a few mouse clicks in the graphical display. For example for a certain sound, a saturation effect can be applied to the bass frequencies, and a distortion at higher frequencies. You can also add modulations to the different frequencies, or give separate frequencies another panning or even lower its volume.
Saturn costs € 129. Demonstration specialist Dan Worrall shows why this plug-in is cool:
