Softube: Saturation Knob

A simple, free, saturation modelling plugin.


13 December 2023

Softube’s free Saturation Knob plugin is a modelled output distortion that can be used anywhere you need some grit. It is great for fattening up drums and bass, adding harmonics to vocals, and more. As well as a knob controlling the ammount of saturation being applied, there’s also three-way switch to access three different modes: Keep High, Neutral, and Keep Low.

These modes give you three characteristic types of distortion. If you want to squash a drum loop but keep the bass drum fairly intact, you can use Keep Low mode, while Keep High mode distorts the low end more while keeping the high frequencies relatively clean.

There are also three versions of the plugin included. Saturation Knob work as a native plugin, but also has Saturation Knob for Modular, and Saturation Knob for Amp Room variants. Saturation Knob for Modular — Softube’s virtual Eurorack platform — helps you create sensational synth sounds. Virtually patch it to modules from Doepfer, Buchla, Intellijel, and more to discover new sonic spheres. Saturation Knob for Amp Room, is Softube’s pro audio guitar and bass platform. Combine it with other studio effects, classic amps, cabs, and pedals to easily create studio-quality, record-ready tones.

Get Saturation Knob for free and add a taste of warm, analog saturation to your mixes.
