Beautiful analogue goodness!
Tonehaven, 12.02.2015
The Fatso is a device that really brings a mix alive. After checking out the millions of options available with the budget I had for a character piece, that was both distinctive and useful on an everyday basis, I settled on the fatso. I haven't been disappointed! Combined with a helpful manual, and an easy to use device, it didn't take me long to start to 'learn' the unit, and just see how versatile it really is.... There hasn't been a project at my studio since buying the Fatso, where it hasn't been used... Try it on... drum bus, bass, guitar, acoustic, violin, even vocals... it's awesome!

Hardware lohnt sich (manchmal)
GPunkt, 08.01.2021
Man muss vorausschicken, dass ich auch das Plugin von UAD habe und nutze. Die Frage ist ja immer: Wie sehr kann man die beträchtlichen Mehrkosten für die HW rechtfertigen. Die Antwort in diesem Fall: Mit den Ohren. Ich bin durchaus verwöhnt und mag Saturatoren und "Anwärmer" generell - aber der Fatso ist eine Klasse für sich selber. Seine "Wärme" ist im wesentlichen ein Hochfrequenz-Kompressor. Seine eigentliche Dynamik kommt mit der Balance Input zu Output. Nochmal eine THD Schippe drauf mit dem zuschaltbaren Transformer. Wenn man verstanden hat, wie alles ungefähr zusammenspielt, kann man sich Einzelspuren wie auch den Mixbus dicker machen, wie mit nichts sonst, dass ich kenne. Der Klang ist am ehesten vergleichbar mit einem Culture Vulture, der über einen Tegeler Creme läuft und der SSL Fusion Höhenkompressor die Harschheit in den zischelnden Höhen abrundet. Ich bin begeistert. Die Bedienung ist ein bisschen frickelig (was aber ganz egal ist, weil nur wenige Schlüsselparameter den eigentlichen Effekt ausmachen. Verarbeitung, Klang und Features sind über jeden Zweifel erhaben und rechtfertigen den schmerzhaften Aderlass im Geldbeutel. Ich werde den/die Fatso wohl noch lange und oft benutzen.
