Fabfilter Saturn

Damn this plugin seems versatile according to this tutorial: http://youtu.be/dbMa8g_jV2I

It's supposed to be released on March 8, 2012. I'm seriously considering to buy it.

This seems pretty similar to Ohmicide (multiband distortions, different saturation types, feedback, LFOs, etc.) but with a snazzier UI

Oh this looks so sweet. Fabfilter just get it right - superb sound quality and very clean interfaces.
Wonder how much this will cost - it's probably the one distortion unit to rule it all. Never liked Ohmicides interface...

I'd love to just buy all their plugins and be done with it but unfortunately have none and have only demoed. If they stayed true to past form the sound quality and usability will be epic.

Im guessing 150-174 euros. Another nice thing about these people - if you already have a bunch of their plugins - you get a decent discount.

Nice amount of algorithms and modulation options; very tempting. I'm still getting good mileage out of the Silverline bundle, though :|

Of all the interfaces for multi-band distortions this one seems the best.

My favourite plugin people, by far - this looks and sounds fantastic.

Wow, that distortion looks amazing. I've got ohmicide and haven't really gotten along with it. Partly because of the UI and partly because i don't like the sound of a lot of the distortion types and as mentioned before i don't use many of them. I think there is a problem with ohmicide of having too much choice. Especially when a lot of the distortion types sound very similar to many of the other types. I mostly just split the bands up manually using Lives multiband compressor and then use Lives built in saturator (i particularly like the "waveshaper" setting).

This new Fabfilter pluggin looks a lot nicer too use and the different distortion types (although fewer than ohmicide) look a lot more usable and sound nicer to my ears (going from the preview video).

I have to say i'm also really impressed by the other Fabfilter pluggins too. I've never really had a look at them before but they look really smart! I love the metering on the compressor! Where you can see the input and output super imposed on one another, so that after you compress the signal you can get it back to the same volume really easily! And Volcano 2 just looks stunning and can be retriggered via midi which for me is the holy grail of external filters (all the ones i have can't retrigger and i've been looking for one that can for ages).

Im hopeing that now they have a multi-band processor that a) its a very good multi-band splitter, and b) they use t as the basis for a really good multiband dynamics plugin - think ProG/ProC/ProL in each band to give you the kind of functionality you get in the really expensive waves, multiband limiters etc - well actually alot more if they combined multiband processing with those 3 dynamics processors.

I think a year ago or so on the Fabfilter forum there was either a topic, or they themselves asked what plugin they should build next, can't recall which it was but a tape saturation/distortion plugin was pretty close to a consensus choice. Get paid on Friday, can't wait to get this. Love Fabfilter stuff.
