On Tube Saturator 2:
“Tube Saturator 2 has put great energy into my tracks. I am currently using it on various drums, instruments, aux sends underneath vocals and it is simply magic. TS2 brings everything it touches to life. It will definitely be a ‘secret weapon’ plugin on the next Soul Ballet CD as well as my film and television work.”
