BPB Saturator is a freeware waveshaping saturation plugin. It is our holiday gift to you. Thanks for reading Bedroom Producers Blog! ❤
The plugin emulates tube-style distortion and tape-style saturation. It is optimized to sound great, albeit with low CPU consumption.
We wanted to create a saturation tool that is lightweight and easy to use. Emulate a tube preamp by applying a bit of tube saturation, then simulate passing your audio through a tape machine with a bit of tape saturation. Or, go crazy and boost the input to use BPB saturator as a dual distortion effect.
BPB Saturator also features a pair of filters (high-pass and low-pas) that are smooth and transparent. Use the filters to clean up the signal, or to isolate a section of the signal that needs to be distorted. For example, try removing the top end from a bass sound, then add plenty of tube drive for a more aggressive sound.
How To Use BPB Saturator?
BPB Saturator is the more nuanced follow-up to our BPB Dirty Filter plugin. Whereas BPB Dirty Filter excels at over-the-top distorted sounds with plenty of filter resonance, BPB Saturator can deliver a far more subtle form of saturation.
You can use BPB Saturator to warm up virtual instruments, drum loops, bass sounds, or even the entire mix. Experiment with applying a subtle amount of tube saturation first to drive the signal. Then, add some tape saturation to introduce odd harmonics and level out any excess volume peaks.
Another rather obvious (and often overlooked method) to make your digital audio “more analog” is to remove the extreme high frequencies. For example, to warm up a virtual synthesizer, add a small amount of tape saturation, then apply a subtle high-frequency cut with the low-pass filter.
The plugin features a resizable user interface. If you’re using a high-resolution screen, click the 4K button in the upper-right corner to double to GUI size. You can also right-click the plugin to select the preferred GUI size.
