The X-Saturator provides a stunning range of analogue style distortion effects. It is an emulation of an analogue circuit that introduces either 2nd order valve style or 3rd order transistor style distortion or a blend of the two. At low drive settings the distortion is mild and can add gentle warming to help instruments sit nicely in a mix or to add a little extra edge to help instruments cut through a mix. As drive levels are increased so is the level of distortion until at high drive levels heavy distortion occurs.
The controls are simple with a Harmonics control selecting 2nd or 3rd order distortion or a blend of the two a Drive control setting the drive level a Depth controlling the amplitude of the distortion and a Shape control adjusting whether the distortion has smooth or hard edges. A Headroom button offers an extra 6dB of headroom for creating heavily boosted/distorted signals without digital clipping. A dedicated wet/dry mix control uses parallel processing. There are Input and Output Meters and Input and Output Level controls. X-Saturator can be automated via standard DAW Automation data and has A&B Preset slots with an A/B switch for easy comparison of two different combinations of settings.
