Intuitive Saturation with FX Chains (Sonar version)



Recently, David Mood created an awesome video on the Produce Like A Pro (PLAP) website that displayed an ingenious method of saturation within a mix. His video displayed a step by step process of creating that FX chain within Studio One by PreSonus. This video is that same concept, only this step by step is within Sonar by Cakewalk.

To view the original video by David on the PLAP website follow this link:  https://www.producelikeapro.com/2016/11/24/using-saturation-effectively/
