Voxengo is happy to release a new major version 2 of its VariSaturator plug-in.  VariSaturator is an audio effect plugin designed to apply saturation and overdrive effects to audio material.  VariSaturator is available in AAX, AudioUnit, VST, and VST3 plugin formats, for macOS and Windows computers.

Version 2.0 includes the following changes:Voxengo VariSaturator 400px

  • Added the "Band Count" switch.
  • Added the preset list sorting function to the preset manager.
  • Redesigned the knob image.
  • Extended the "Color Editor" with color modifiers.
  • Added the "Gray Blue" color scheme.

VariSaturator features two saturation modules which are applied in sequence, in two-band or broadband mode.  The tube/valve saturation module applies asymmetric valve processing that closely resembles sound of a high-quality valve amplifier cascade.  Another saturation module VariSaturator features is a digital “waveshaping” saturator with feedback topology.  This module applies smooth saturation which can amplify signal level and apply desirable harmonic coloration.  If you have some “muffled” track in the mix that needs to cut through the mix better, VariSaturator will help you in this case easily.

VariSaturator can be used in a variety of audio processing cases: you may apply it with good results over drum, bass and vocal tracks, over sub-mixes, and of course over complete mixes.

  • Two-band and broadband processing
  • Selectable crossover filter steepness
  • Valve and digital saturation
  • Multi-channel processing
