Satin, for me, is what some people call a 'game changer'.
I've been trying to achieve a satisfying approximation of an analogue/hardware sound with an entirely software setup for a while, without much success.
There was a lot of pre-hype/buzz around Satin, and I (sceptic that I am) wasn't holding my breath. But I heard what the demo did to my sounds and had to have it
I find it can comfortably replace many other individual plugins that I've been chaining together in an attempt to get the sound I want; Eq, compressors, limiters, clippers, saturators etc. Using Satin massively reduces the amount of fiddling about I need to get those thick, juicy, present tones I've been craving.
For me, this is 'it'; This is VST software that has cracked it; enough that I don't crave expensive hardware anymore.
It's not a budget plugin. In fact it's the most expensive effect plugin I've purchased so far, even at the intro price. However, I think it's worth it in spades.
