T-RackS Saturator X is a comprehensive tool for adding analog flavour to your recordings. From tape to tube to transformer to transistor, it provides you with options - 10 individual styles of saturation and distortion from the gentle, subtle hint of drive from a slightly overdriven transistor to the full-on wooly nasty in-your-face mayhem of tubes driven to beyond their limit and everything in between.

T-RackS Saturator X is intuitive and extremely easy to use. It works as a plug-in on the individual tracks in your mix or as part of the T-RackS chain. It works by imparting distortion into the digital processing which by its nature doesn't typically change or alter the linearity of the frequency response and harmonic pattern of a signal. The introduction of distortion simulates the way analog circuitry behaves especially when pushed beyond its limit.

The controls on the Saturator X are pretty straightforward: Input Gain, Ouput drive (can be independent or inverse linked controls), Saturation mode select, Brickwall limiter engage and Oversampling select. The Input Gain and Output level controls can operate as individual controls, allowing you to freely adjust how much saturation effect is applied and how loud the effect appears in the mix. You can also "inverse link" the two and maintain the ratio of input gain to output volume. This lets you set your overall perceived volume, lock it in, then adjust the amount of saturation applied without changing the output level.

Saturator X is at home on individual tracks where you can use it as a creative tool to add dimension, depth and a "warm and fuzzy" analog feel, or pushed to extreme limits saturation for artistic application. Use it on the master fader where gain can applied more judiciously to give it the character of an analog stage, be it tube, transistor, solid solid state or a tape deck.

Saturator X also features a "Magic Eye" VU meter that quickly gives you a visual indication of the amount of saturation being applied to the incoming signal. This style of VU meter replicates the vintage tube indicators and will instantly transport you back in time.
