AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands, March 8, 2012. FabFilter releases a brand-
new addition to its line of creative effect plug-ins: FabFilter Saturn,
a multi-band distortion and saturation plug-in. A great variety of
distortion styles from subtle tape simulation to full-on multi-band
guitar amp mayhem, combined with endless modulation options and a
streamlined, uncluttered interface promise FabFilter Saturn a place
among the stars.

FabFilter Saturn offers a wide range of high-quality distortion models
from subtle, clean and warm tube or tape saturation to fully overdriven
vintage guitar amp simulation. Additional creative distortion styles let
you time-smear, stretch, crush, rectify and clip your sounds in
inspiring and unexpected ways. Create up to six bands with individual
feedback, compression/expansion and tone controls to give each part of
the spectrum the warmth and color it needs.

To bring even more life and depth to your sound, engage FabFilter
Saturn's extensive modulation section. By applying subtle modulation to
crossover frequencies, dynamics, band levels or tone controls, you can
add unique definition and flavor. With practically unlimited modulation
sources from XY controllers and programmable step sequencers to any type
of MIDI data, the creative possibilities are endless.

The clever user interface makes FabFilter Saturn look deceptively
simple, showing only the controls that you are actually using at the
moment. The entire modulation section is hidden by default, resulting in
a friendly interface that invites you to explore the essential controls
and the included factory presets. When you need to look "under the
hood", a single click expands the modulation section, letting you easily
add modulation sources and create modulation connections via drag-and-
drop. This combination of features makes FabFilter Saturn powerful and
flexible, yet ultimately accessible for everyday use.

   saturation to heavily overdriven guitar amp models, time-smearing and
   bit crushing
