Plugin Alliance releases the SA2RATE 2 saturator plugin, an emulation of Looptrotter’s world-renowned solid-state SA2RATE hardware.

Now you can smoothen out your high and add thickness and power to your low end with Looptrotter’s first-ever plugin: the SA2RATE 2 saturator.

The plugin is based on Looptrotter’s world-renowned solid-state saturation hardware. This circuit adds low-order harmonics while smoothening out sounds in a musical and “ear-friendly way”.

SA2RATE 2 increases the RMS level while adding analog color to your audio signal – all without raising its peaks or introducing unwanted artifacts.
