Audified U78 Saturator - Electronic Delivery

Valve plug-in based on German U73b
MFR# 1063-56

Product Description

The Audified U78 Saturator is a valve plug-in based on the circuitry of the famous vintage German U73b Compressor allowing saturation of an exact band. U78 Saturator gives you a chance to color the precisely selected band with the circuitry of U73b Compressor. Intended to be used on bass, drums and vocals, but creativity knows no boundaries.

Almost anything is possible in the digital world. With the right skills and technology, you can create absolutely anything you like... like the U78 Saturator. So they took the circuitry of the legendary U73b compressor and played around a bit to come up with some seriously satisfying saturation!

Audified admire the range of the vintage gear which is impressive but limited. They admire the new analog gear bringing new sound colors and workflows to the audio production world. Modern designs sometimes copy the old gear, but generally, these two worlds are disconnected and the value is not combined.

In U78, they mixed the vintage circuits value, the modern analog design and the software modeling. They performed changes in the vintage device circuitry so it can be used for completely different purposes than the original, and have immediately created a software model of the result.

CONTROLS:

  • Gain - adjusts the input gain of the saturation circuit (The higher the settings, the richer the sound that can be achieved)
  • HiPass - sets the cut-off frequency of the high-pass filter, which comes before the saturation circuit in the signal path (The range is from 30 Hz to 800 Hz - turn the knob to minimum to turn off the HiPass filter)
  • LowPass - sets the cut-off frequency of the lowpass filter, which comes before the saturation circuit in the signal path (The range is from 1 kHz to 8 kHz - turn the knob to maximum to turn off the LowPass filter)
  • Tone - controls the U78 Saturator's unique tone filter (Lower settings produce darker sounds with more low frequency content; conversely, higher settings result in brighter, sparkling sounds)
  • Mix - controls the dry and wet signal ratio (The dry signal is delayed to match the wet signal path latency to prevent phasing issues)

  • Seriously satisfying saturation

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
