Plug-In Provides Saturation And Distortion

kiloHearts, developer of AU and VST plug-ins for Windows and Mac, has announced the release of a new plug-in: Faturator. They tell us that Faturator is a saturation/distortion unit, providing effects ranging from subtle warm saturation to harsh digital fuzz. On top of this they say that included coloring and stereo widening allows for changing the character of the sound in a quick and easy way. kiloHearts says that, contrary to many distortion effects, Faturator will preserve the dynamics of your sound and apply its effects on it regardless of input gain.
kiloHearts tell us that their focus lies on ease of use while providing powerful functionality at a low price point and that Faturator's simple user interface puts all controls at the fingertips of the user, making it easy to quickly find the sound you want. Per Svanberg, developer and co-founder, told Sonic State, "A lot of plugins these days try to compete with feature lists, often forgetting that they're part of a creative process. We want to isolate the most important parts, and make them as quickly and easily accessible as possible."
Pricing and Availability:
Faturator is available now as VST and AudioUnit plug-ins. Both 32-bit and 64-bit versions are available on Mac OS X and Windows operating systems. The full product can be purchased for €15 / $19, and a fully functional demo is available for download. More information:
