Mackie Designs Inc. (Woodinville, Wash.) announced the release of a new third-party plug-in, Saturated Fat, for the Mackie Soundscape 32 digital audio workstation.
Developed by Canadian-based software company, Acuma Labs, Saturated Fat is a mono plug-in that employs a new proprietary technology to achieve warm, natural-sounding, tube (saturated) distortion and cabinet modeling. Users can choose from over 40 preset distortion types or select from an array of factory presets.
Users can build custom distortions that can be saved and recalled as a user preset. Presets are built by combining the Cabinet Modeler, selecting from a list of small, medium, large, acoustic and bass amps, with the Drive Level and the onboard 7-band EQ. Users can plug any instrument into the Soundscape system and start playing.
Saturated Fat (MSRP $199) is available worldwide through authorized Mackie dealers. For a dealer near you, visit Mackie online at www.mackie.com.
