Vielseitig und aus meinem Setup nicht mehr raus zu denken.
Einel, 27.01.2021
Habe mir dieses Plugin zur Soundbearbeitung und zum Mixing gekauft und bin bis jetzt begeistert. Die Presets ergeben durchaus sinn und die Multibandfunktion ist einfach nur ein Segen.

Der Sound ist wirklich flexibel. von Subtilen Obertönen, durch Trafosimulation, oder garstige klänge einer kaputten Röhre. Der Sound lässt sich mit den gegebenen Parametern gut bearbeiten und an die gegebene Quelle gut anpassen. Durch die eingebaute Multibandfunktion kann man sich Vieles hin und her bei Bass und Bass Drum sparen und die Fundamente unbearbeitet lassen, während man den ersten Obertönen mehr Charakter mit einer alten Kassettensimulation gibt oder mehr biss mit einer Röhrensimulation. Die Simulationen kranken an keiner stelle und auch in subtileren Einstellungen, zum Beispiel zum Summieren von Mixgruppen, wir der mix eher angereichert und nicht kaputt gemacht.

Man braucht sicherlich erst mal einen kleinen Einführer in die Bedieneigenheiten von FabFilter. Aber ist man einmal drinnen, ist die Bedienung denkbar einfach und intuitiv. Man bekommt immer gut informiertes Feedback durch die GUI und fühlt sich so gut wie nie alleine gelassen.

In meinem Setup (Rysen 2700x 16GB RAM) arbeitet des Plugin recht sparsam. Meine DAW ist hier Cubase Pro 9.5. Selbst das Nutze an individuellen spuren war bis jetzt kein Problem und es war noch mehr als genug CPU und RAM für meine Samplelibrarys von VSL oder Spitfire da. Ich denke selbst auf einem Laptop lassen sich hier alle Features kreativ nutzen, ohne an die Grenzen zu stoßen.

Das Saturn 2 macht ungemein spaß zu benutzen. Man kann Von Subtil bis Zerstörung alles kinderleicht einstellen und hat nie das Gefühl von der GUI hängen gelassen zu werden. Durch die Multibandfunktion lassen sich unterschiedliche Frequenzbereiche unterschiedlich stark bearbeiten, was unglaublich tolle kreative Ansätze ermöglicht, aber auch die Bearbeitung von Anspruchsvolleren quellen, wie z.B. Bass, angenehm einfach gestaltet und auch noch Zeit und Ressourcen spart. Eine Klare Kaufempfehlung von mir.
