Looptrotter Audio SA2RATE 2 Saturation Module
The Looptrotter Audio SA2RATE 2 is the second generation of the dual channel saturator fitted with Looptrotter’s world famous solid state saturation circuit. It was created to add low order harmonics and smoothly even the signal in a musical and ear friendly way, significantly increasing the RMS level without raising peaks at the same time, so desired in modern music production.
Drive controls the input level of the processed signal and the depth of the saturation. Process (True Bypass) allows to switch between dry and saturated signal. The amount of added harmonics is indicated by two LEDs lighting up at 4 and 8% THD.
LO safe engages the pre-emphasis and de-emphasis circuit, preventing the lowest frequencies from distortion. This option is particularly useful while processing instruments with content rich in low frequencies like kick, bass, drum group or the whole mix.
HI smooth boosts high frequencies before saturation circuit and attenuates them after. This allows deeper saturation of higher frequencies with harmonics, and smoothes the signal with very subtle compression.
Independent DRY and WET signal control allows to achieve perfect blend between processed and dry signal in chain. The module may sound very subtle, adding slight colorization or aggressive when 100% of saturation is engaged.

Love this thing. Saturate a vocal or master mix / drum buss / with precision - mix knobs are a must have for any saturation! 5/5
Super flexible with how it can build up saturation. I need it to be smooth and subtle to add a little weight, and it’s perfect for that.
The parametric controls give you full control of your saturation including the ability to overdrive the unit input.
Very pure sounding and “Wet” controls allow for a sharper bias per left and right channel.
Amazing sound and very affordable unit
