Grit, oomph, fatness, raw, color, or just that certain something. Sometimes your sounds need a shovel of dirt. Faturator is standing ready to tear whatever you throw at it apart violently, and then gently (but firmly) put it back together fatter and rawer than ever.

Faturator can do everything from adding subtle and warm gritty character to your sounds to slam them into a wall of heavy saturation and digital fuzz. Contrary to many distortion effects, Faturator will preserve the dynamics of your sound and work its wonders on it regardless of input gain.

For the heck of it, it can also color the input to emphasize a specific tone of the sound, or throw some stereo width into the mix. Everything to give you a fast and easy way of making any input come alive.

Faturator is available as VST and AudioUnit plugins which work in all popular digital audio workstations like Cubase, Sonar, Logic Pro, Garageband, Ableton Live, FL Studio, Reaper, Studio One and many others. Both 32 bit and 64 bit versions are available on MacOS X and Windows operating systems.

"Really easy to use. Loved the 'fuzz' as you can get exact with the tone of distortion. Sounds great on both synths and vocals!"/David Cox (autoKratz) "I'm not normally a fan of distortion units... But kiloHearts "Faturator" is AMAZING! It turns a simple saw wave into an uncontrollable dubstep eating monster!"/Dom Kane "There hasn't been a project recently that I haven't used Faturator in. It's not always on the same sound, group or bus but it always finds a place. Easy to use and sounds great."/Ben Wilson (DivKid) "Very user friendly and almost no drain on your CPU. It can add a nice grit to vocals, synths and even drums. Even the stereo widening is so useful and well executed, it could've been its own plug-in."/Ajay Bhattacharyya (Data Romance) "We're always looking for new ways to colour and add texture to our sounds and I think Faturator just became one of our favourites. There's something a little bit Commodore 64 about the fuzz which love and the overdrive has a certain soul to it, setting the drive / fuzz to zero & adjusting the colour sounds great too."/Pat Pardy (Evil Nine)
