    Can\'t live without it

    by J. Lane . 5 out of 5 stars

    Out of the 2 week demo for the Fatso I purchased it immediately. It's absolutely great on everything. It sweetens everything up and has multiple functions which is great because UA plugs are so expensive. Nothing will ever be the hardware version of any plugin but they all get very close. This is a must buy for your UA arsenal. If you are new to UA and you want to get something, this should be it.

    nice surprise

    by R. Castro . 4 out of 5 stars

    I wasn't expecting to like this thing. Brought my drum mix together. Doesn't work on everything, but when it does, it's very nice.

    AMAZING tone / vibe box

    by B. Soldate . 5 out of 5 stars

    Drum buss, check. vocals (in parallel and as an insert) check. snare, check.

    Anything you want to punch and have some attitude without it going crazy or sounding squashed (in a bad way) this is the plug. Never used the hardware, but this thing is great on its own. Seriously blown away!

    Yes it\'s Phat!!

    by M. Penn . 5 out of 5 stars

    If you don't have the Hardware, Now you have it in your computer, Great on Everything.. Love it on Drum Buss, or Slamming with tone from the tranny, make it dirty crunchy for parallel compression.

    Another Must Have!!

    fatso

    by J. Anderson . 5 out of 5 stars

    I love this plug in... I had the hardware in my studio and never fell in love with it. OMG what was I thinking. The plug in seems so much more flexible and rounded

    Super glue

    by P. Hill . 5 out of 5 stars

    This plugin is ace. It's fairly expensive, but there's no way I can afford the hardware. I'd love the real deal and a distressor, but they are out of my price range.
    This is wonderful to glue drum tracks together and, depending on your needs, can sound great on the mix bus of your tracks. Really easy to use. You just drive the input and balance the output. The rest is all done with switches. You can get a really driven compressed bass sound through to a subtly compressed mix bus with some tape warmth. Lovely stuff.

    It\'s the real thing.

    by P. Bunditlertrak . 5 out of 5 stars

    If you're Fatso user or Fatso lover, This thing is very similar to hardware version.
    Good for tracking,coloring,boosting, Add more warm and distortion to you track.

    Drum and Bass Buss Monster

    by G. Doscher . 4 out of 5 stars

    Absolute game changer of a compressor on the drum and bass buss. Fattens them up and glues them together just like you'd it want it to. The "tranny" feature to saturate the lows is great as well but very resource hungry which is the only reason I've given this 4 as opposed to 5 stars. Great plugin and looking forward to testing it more extensively on vocals and other instruments.

    True and honest replication of the hardware unit

    by R. Jacobi . 5 out of 5 stars

    The FATSO plug-in provides a true and honest replication of the hardware unit. The Tranny function is a brilliant feature of the hardware and has been modelled very close to its analog counterpart. As most quality emulations it is unfortunately another DSP hog which gives you only two instances at 24/96 per DSP. You better stack your UAD cards if you are looking to mix a full session.

    A Simulation of a Simulator

    by C. Huseyin . 3 out of 5 stars

    A multi purpose Software unit trying to simulate a Hardware unit that's trying to simulate Tape Saturation.

    It doesn't feel analog.

    Instead, it got some kind of strange enhancement that feels 'un-natural'. The tape simulation is kind of 'dense', the compressor is limited and the harmonic distortion also feels dense & rough.

    The unit is trying to do too much and doesn't really excel in any of them.

    It's a dense feeling unit. Try inserting on a bass drum to feel how dense the bottom end thud becomes. It feels like it would be good for Heavy Metal bass drums (when used very lightly) but other than that, it's not very versatile considering it's a 'multi-purpose' unit.

    3 / 5

    Like the real one!!!

    by B. Marin . 5 out of 5 stars

    When I used it for thr first time, I got the same feeling than the hardware.
    I can compress a lot and it still sounds great to my ears.
    That's why I bought that plug straight away after my demo time.

    Amazing!

    by Z. Huang . 5 out of 5 stars
