PSP Saturator: PSP AudioWare’s New Saturation Plugin
Add a little Heat to your Mix!
If you’re looking to add some Mojo to your mixes, take a look into PSP Audioware’s new Saturator!
What Is PSP Saturator?
PSP Saturator is MixSaturator 5.0 incorporating modern standards and things we’ve learned and polished in the last few decades of plug-in development. With that said every algorithm in PSP Saturator is redesigned or written completely from scratch.
The PSP Saturator Plugin emulates analog tape recorders to add warmth to your audio signal. Adding warmth to your music stops it from sounding sterile and cold.
Warmth is achieved by adding harmonics to your audio signal. Keep in mind, not all harmonics are the same. Some harmonics are used for increasing the perceived loudness of a sound while others are used for adding warmth.
Benefits Of Odd & Even Harmonics
- Even harmonics: Responsible for the warm analog sound people have grown to love
- Odd harmonics: Delivers a more edgy, harsh, or sound with bite-like character.
The Saturator offers eight different shape modes for flexibility from subtle ‘mix mojo’ to outright destruction. Put Saturator on your Master Chain and let the saturator work its magic.
Why Completely Rewrite The Algorithm?
This was a lot of work but allowed us to properly address some of the original Saturator’s weaknesses and improve them as well as adopt support for
- Retina screens
- Scalable interfaces
- Introduce oversampling support up to 384Mhz for the most pristine sonic quality available!
With changes comes compromise and we realized that keeping backward compatibility was no longer possible due to the range of changes to virtually every aspect of the plugin and the number of new parameters to add even more detailed control that wasn’t possible before.
With the support of top mixing engineers and producers, we meticulously refined each algorithm to win the hearts (and more importantly, ears) of some of the most discerning and demanding users in the industry.
