Designed to emulate a console-based workflow (including metering, saturation, stereo crosstalk, and trim).

  • Saturation can be disabled when you want to use Satson for trim and metering purposes exclusively.
  • Two Saturations modes: Normal (subtle distortion, high dynamic range) and Fat (hotter signal, lower dynamic range).
  • Satson can be used subtly or aggressively (to distort synths, and virtual or real instruments, for example).
  • Filters (both low and high pass) are tuned to sound sweet and pleasant to the ear.
  • Activate Satson Buss’ “LOUD” switch to add more “air” to your highs and “punch” to your lows.
  • Instances can be “grouped” creating the possibility of affecting all instances by making changes to just one.
  • With zero latency, no group delay, and careful optimization for low CPU consumption, Satson allows for a remarkably high number of multiple instances per session.
  • Internal 64-bit floating point double precision.


Imagine being able to control all Satson instances from a single instance. Imagine the freedom to assign Satson instances into “groups” for simultaneous control of all grouped instances.

Now, with Satson it’s possible to do just that: Turn on/off saturation, choose Fat or Normal mode, make volume adjustments for a group of instruments, and alter the drive for a group of instances, all from the convenience of one Master Instance.

Users Testimonials

“Satson always works nice coloring things and even distorting. I used Satson on all mixes I did with the LA producer Mario Caldato Jr. (Beastie Boys, Jack Johnson).”

    Admittedly frustrated at first. The main issue being that I couldn’t distinguish if emailed replies were from an auto-mailer program or from an actual service rep. It seemed like there was a bit of lag in communication. I am, however new to Sonimus as a customer, so it may have very well been user error on my part. All that aside, customer support was of great assistance in helping me sort out the issue. The product works and sound excellent!

  2. Jonathan C. (verified owner)

    Brings a consistently pleasing substance in the mids that I find doesn’t come easily any other way.

  3. Jerry Skipworth (verified owner)

    Just another awesome plugin by an awesome company.

  5. Michael Schulz (verified owner)

    Great product for a great price!

  6. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Great console emulation! Along with Britson, exactly what I was looking for going into tape emulation. The authorization process could be made more efficient. Please consider a manager.

  7. Erron Williams (verified owner)

    These plug ins sound amazing!

  8. Vince Valentini (verified owner)

    Sonimus make the whole experience straightforward and enjoyable. Their plug-ins are one of only 2 brands I use outside of hardware and the UAD platform – ie, Sonimus quality is so reasonably priced yet sounds as good as the short-list of the very best software processing. My most recent purchase of the Satson is no different – great functionality, sound, easy to use, easy to purchase and install, and most importantly No Smearing or Dulling of audio (which is audible to my ears in almost every brand of plug-ins I’ve used as a songwriter, producer and mastering engineer). Additionally the CPU hit is so low that you can populate your entire mix with the enriching tone these plugins offer. Best wishes Sonimus, hope you get the merit you deserve, and that you keep enjoying and developing your craft. I recommend these plugins to anyone looking for high quality at an affordable price range.

    Definitely added some analog sweetness to my mixes. This gets slapped on every track now.

    The downloads cannot be unzipped on a Mac using the default program. You have to use RAR extractor or some other application. This is not apparent nor is it written in the installation instructions.

  15. Adey M. (verified owner)

    Very pleased with Satson, just like Britson the grouping feature is extremely useful, especially when used in conjunction with Satson CS…

    Sonimus products form the core of my workflow, they are reliable, effective, great value for money, and relentlessly analogue in nature…. Whats not to like ??

  16. Gustavo Valdes (verified owner)

    Out of all the console emulations that i’ve tried, Satson is the best. Smooth filters on the channel. The Bus sounds clear and glues just like my old console. 5/5

  22. Josh Ladgrove (verified owner)

    Josh Ladgrove, Melbourne, Australia.

    console emulation that sits across every bus/channel that I use on virtually every project. Filters are butter and the fat button adds depth when used on many tracks.

    Reasonably priced, high quality products.

  23. Alvaro D. (verified owner)

    Satson es un excelente plugin para conseguir un sonido profesional. Personalmente lo uso conjuntamente con el Bx_Console G de Pluginalliance. Satson está en mis buses de mezcla calentando el material. Merece la pena.

  24. Drew Gold (verified owner)

    Drew Gold here. I used to work with Satson exclusively until Britson was released, which is a less subtle console emulation. Satson doesn’t really have a “sound” like Britson does, although it’s great using either to mix with on every channel.

  25. Sudad G (verified owner)

    I work for several years with Sonimus Satson.
    I insert it in every channel and busses of my DAW with great results. I combine it very often with Waves SSL Channels or Universal Audio Neve Channels. With Sonimus Satson I get the sound that I know from analog consoles. A very important plugin for me in every production.

  26. MazQ (verified owner)

    I’m MazQ and using Satson.
    I put some character to a track using gain knob. especially used track that has attack or punch.
    I love it as well as Sonnox inflator.
