    Hi James, just ask away.

    I think it‘s different for different people. I myself can barely hear differences when using saturation, except in extrem cases. But I have been using console emulations for a while now and it really helps me a lot, not getting harsh sounding mixes. I don‘t counteract loosing the highs in rock and pop music. You don‘t want to have too many hi highs.
    If you are looking for good inexpensive (meaning free) saturation, console emulation and similar plugins, take a look at http://www.airwindows.com. Unfortunately or fortunately you can only use airwindows plugins by ear. 🙂
