Saturn 2 introduces a host of features such as a redesigned interface with modulation visualization, subtle saturation and linear phase processing for mastering, many distortion styles, and more.

Warmth, harmonics, color and dynamics

FabFilter Saturn 2 offers a range of different high-quality distortion models, inspired by the vintage sound of tubes, tape, transformers, and guitar amps. In addition, you get five creative FX distortion styles to mangle your sounds in weird and unexpected ways.

Bring your sounds to life

Add life and depth to your music using the extensive modulation section. By applying subtle modulation to crossover frequencies, dynamics, band levels or tone controls, great warmth and definition can be achieved.

Creating new modulation connections could not be easier: just drag and drop. And Saturn 2 visualizes all modulation in real-time to show exactly what's going on.
