Valve saturating plug-in based on the circuitry of the famous U73b Compressor

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.


Analog saturation is the favorite tool of many producers. When applied with elegance, it adds so much character, presence and definition to your tracks. We decided to create an advanced saturator, aimed especially on producers looking for adding the extra flavor to their tracks. U78 takes the masterfully simulated analog saturation from u78b Compressor and takes it to the next level. With advanced controls, this plugin ensures you find the perfect analog character for your tracks.

U78 Saturator HIGHLIGHTS

  • Advanced saturation circuit based on u73b Compressor –
  • Modeled tube circuit for analog character and sound –
  • Optional automatic output level control –
  • Adjustable effect proportion and output level –
  • Hi and low pass filters for a frequency dependent effect –


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Tone – controls the U78 Saturator’s unique tone filter. Lower settings produce darker sounds with more low-frequency content; 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.
