    Thanks Jason,

    I’ve been messing around with saturation for quite some time but I don’t like to use plugins for the sake of using them, so wanted to hear why other people reach for saturation. I’ve never used it heavily in a mix before, I’ll give it a go on one of my next mixes.

    Agree that it makes tracks glue, but it comes at the cost of distortion, trying to find that balance is tricky for me. Especially if using on clean sources such as Acoustic guitar (my nemesis when it comes to mixing)

    Really appreciate response! Great comment!

    Cheers!

    Edit: cheers for the heads up on those plugins as well! Will google it now. Thanks again Jason.
