Just published a review of the new version of FabFilter Saturn. I spent the last week playing with it and gave it very high marks. As I state in the review, Saturn continues to be the "buy once, buy right" saturation/distortion plugin.

Check out the review here:

Hahaha! No, I can assure you Dan is a way cooler individual. He is exactly the kind mellow English dude you'd assume from the voice overs in his videos. Extraordinary gentleman he is.

I'm just the grumpy slightly nerdy Finn.

Could you have accidentally had the oversampling turned on with one of the instances and off with the other?

Fab Filter Preset = ffp

You have to paste them into a folder location where the plugin can see them. Not sure where that’s hidden in a Mac, but I’m sure someone here will say.

.ffp is the filename extension for FabFilter presets.

There is a load preset option in the plugin, click that then find the preset in the browser.

I was able to manually paste them in my presets folder. Load Preset seems like a slicker option for the future, but I can't find it. I looked everywhere in the presets menu, I think. Can you direct me to this?

Can someone ELI5 the difference? Are they both just doing some version of envelope following saturation?

I was almost going to pass on this upgrade, but I can't deny the magic of Mythical 3D. Even on top of all my other goodies: Gullfoss, INTENSITY, UNFILTERED, etc. Dang.
I can't seem to find the "Mythical 3D Bm Color" preset in the google drive folder
I see the "3D Extractor trafo bM" and 3 others but not the Mythical...? was it shared somewhere else?

The Mythical 3D preset is included with Saturn 2 official release (found in the Color category). The extra presets in my google drive folder were created after release of Saturn 2.

Yeah that might be it.. dunno. I am on mac btw.
Thanks for the replies so far.
Weird though!
Can that be verified by the dev?

Bmanic's preset is awesome. The 3D transformer blend is crazy good.

I'm still learning it's workflow.

You should be able to test it by splitting the stereo track to 2 mono tracks, add the instance of Saturn on these with the same preset and pan them. See if it sounds different than the same preset on a stereo track.

love this - the modulation system is top notch.

Any videos out there going into the modulation system in depth?

okay as i'm starting to wrap my head around the complexity of Saturn 2 and understand how it works i've been going through the presets and allot of them end with an abbreviation like MdB or bM or SM or O does anyone have a clue what these mean?

Usually that signifies the author of the preset. For example in synth factory presets if you see the letters ARK in the preset name, I probably made it

cool thanks! that thought had occurred to me... but I was trying to figure out if it was tied to something else in the plugin or settings

The preset names and the author would probably be more clear if it was in brackets [bM], [O], [MdB] etc.

But yeah, if you see "bM" after the name of a preset (FabFilter or any other company) then that preset is most likely mine. The only exception is Pro-L 2 where my presets are part of the company factory presets, thus most of those that have no author identifier at all are mine in that particular plugin.

Just jumping in to wave a short "thank you" in your direction for your superb bonus presets and explanations here. I feel like I've learned some things..

Maybe you can share which of the Pro L2 presets are yours. So we can enjoy them the same way we enjoy the Saturn ones..

I would love to watch you on how you use the unisum, pro-l2 and saturn2.

I'd pay for it if it's in a zoom video kind of webinar.

Any suggestions? Didn't know google drive isn't global. Always thought it was one of the most reliable.

Can you try to download the attachement to this post? It's the same zip as on Google Drive.
