Ableton Live - Saturator Device
In this video we will look at Ableton Live’s Saturator device.
Saturator is a wave-shaping effect that can add that missing dirt, punch or warmth to your sound. It can add subtle or hard harmonic distortion to input signals whatever flavour you choose.
The controls within the device give you plenty of opportunity to colour and shape the sound in a variety of ways;
As a dynamic non-linear distortion/waveshaper/analog drive simulation effect.
Controlling transients and peaks or limit the dynamic range and in the process add extra harmonics.
Make a sound louder without adding amplitude.
Adding subtle warming – soft clipping to a signal or extreme overdrive hard clipping
Glueing elements together.
Harmonic Distortion, presence, more upfront sound.
