Great plugin! The M/S aspect of it is really helpful.

This is my new weapon for precise saturation introduced at the 2bus or in Mastering. It's a great compliment to the HG-2 because you can direct it in ways, via M/S and filtering that no orther saturation plugin offers.
Everything bx is amazing and this is no exception.
Love the bx_saturator_V2, it is a great sounding saturator. Like many of the PlugIn Alliance tools that I use, the bx_sat has become my go to saturator for all my projects.
Very good sound , tasty !

Really happy with the bx_saturator. It tends to find it's way onto most mixes I do - especially amazing at anchoring a kick and snare right at the centre of the stereo field. I also use it on vocals to help the mid-range sit on top of the mix.

This may be one of my most used plugins! I use it on practically everything. The V2 is a HUGE upgrade from the original, and I liked the original a lot. The V2 distortion is a lot smoother, so you can get a lot heavier handed with it, whereas the original got kind of harsh fairly quick... though, sometimes that was pretty great for aggressive content. That said, you really should not think of this as just a distortion plugin. I think of it more as extremely colorful 2 band upwards compression. You can really sculpt a sound with this tool. It is great for addressing the clarity and warmth of a source... whether you need more or less. It can be extremely subtle to moderately invasive compared to other distortion plugins out there. It is not a distortion you would use to destroy a sound... it is a distortion you would use to enhance or sculpt a sound. It is super easy to use, too. The ability to solo the individual bands was a really nice touch. I highly recommend it.

loud results without the squashed sound, it's a no brainer.
For special occassions
This is not my go-to saturation plugin. To me, it doesn't sound "natural" enough for that. However! When I need to get deep into a sound and really re-shape it, the Mid/Side aspect, and the XL parameter both really let me manipulate the character of whatever material I'm working on. I don't have any other tools quite like it.
