Newfangled Audio - Saturate

Saturate is the Spectral Clipper algorithm made popular in the Elevate Mastering Limiter. Saturate's two controls belie a sophisticated signal processing engine which allows it to overdrive a signal without effecting the tonal balance no matter how hard you push it.

Add up to 12 dB of clipping with a variable shape parameter which moves from a pleasant soft curve to full hard clipping. Additionally, the SHAPE control allows you to smoothly morph between hard clipping and the mathematically smoothest curve possible. Use Saturate to overdrive individual tracks or your entire mix.


  • Smoothly adjust from the softest to the hardest possible clipping shape
  • Spectral Clipper maintains tonal balance for an always pleasant saturation sound
  • Independent INPUT and OUTPUT levels, with AUTO output level scaling for easy and precise gain scaling
  • Saturation Curve Display and Meter shows you how your signal is hitting the selected clipping shape
  • Mastering Quality Input and Output metering show you both peak and rms levels
