Love this plug in, very easy to use, adds a nice warm organic effect. I found it best to use in parallel. Can be used as a direct guitar effect and sounds great - very cool 70's driven, flanging delay sounds. Amazing when applied underneath guitar and drum takes for some warmth and space. Highly recommended.

Best Saturation
HP aus B. 28.10.2023
Nachdem ich das Hardware-Pedal gekauft habe und davon absolut überzeugt bin, habe ich das Plugin direkt mitgekauft.

Persönlich bevorzuge ich die linke Seite (Saturation). Passt eigentlich überall.

Für 80s Fans
Brockmann 04.09.2023
ich habe das Plugin vor einer Woche erworben und bin ganz zufrieden mit dem. Ich nutze hauptsächlich die Saturation für 80's Style Aufnahmen.

Ich hatte davor Angst, meinen 2021 MacAir zu überfordern, es ist aber nicht passiert. Ich habe das Plugin sogar auf mehreren Tracks an und keine Spür von Verzögerungen von Seite meines Laptops.

Auf jeden Fall empfehlenswert.
