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. Unlike many distortion effects, Faturator can 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.

Stereo Turbo

Adds stereo width by delaying the left or right channel slightly.

"Faturator is an amazingly simple way to add grit and width and I use it in almost every track."


"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

"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

"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

“We have been huge Kilohearts fans ever since we got Faturator. It has been our go to distortion plugin from day one and there is no single production without it. We are also super excited about Kilohearts new synth Phaseplant. With its new modular structure it has been a huge source of inspiration for us and it’s one of the most exciting new synths in the market.“
