FATSO™ Jr. / Sr. Tape Sim. & Compressor
FATSO™ Jr./Sr. Tape Sim. & Compressor
Really great on smashing the drum buss, also on getting bass guitar to growl & warming the vocal buss. Needs a bit of experimentation to get the best out of it, the controls can be quite sensitive, but once you hit the sweet spot, it's pretty awesome.
This compressor and saturator brings so much to the table. Completely satisfied with this plugin and the actual hardware version. Well done!
This is a special sauce plug . ... DSP hungry....worth it.... warm , crunchy , crisy . ...
My demo expired and felt the void which this plug left in my mix. . ..... Must buy

i'll never mix without
Really helpful !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Amazing.
Almost the real thing
Do you want real mean punch on your drums? Can't miss with UAD Fatso. It really sound very close to the hardware for a fraction os the price. And you get Jr and Sr. versions. Just go for it!
This is my Sauce on any source it just adds so much character but Lov It On VOCALS
Not much to say here.... I ALWAYS wanted the hardware unit, but who can afford that? This is analogue tape to my ears. I am in love. Buss it up! This thing is amazing. This plug is a game changer. Try this compressor on the drum and bass buss - fattens them up and glues them together!
The fact that one these costs thousands and you can have as many of them with you as you like is a steal. The warmth and character that this plug gives you is unparalleled. It's not a DSP hog at all. I print to tape with it! You have to take the time to figure out you vocal tone that you're going for but when you finally do.... It's jaw dropping! Don't hesitate buy this in the bundle so you save even more.
Replaced My Hardware
Simply put....it sounds like the hardware it's emulating and is one of the finest plugins I have heard, hands down! I never thought that I would replace my api 2500 on my drum buss but this has! Worth every penny!
Truly Fat !!
running it on a drum bus for overall comping is just Magic - I do not know how this Fatso does what it does but it makes average drums into great drums -- true statement ...
This plug has depth for days maybe years...
If you don't use the Sr. on your Bass tracks... Well then you are playing in the minor leagues. I use this on lots of instrument buss's but It really shines on gear that is plugged in. The depth quality is amazing and I like it more so than the Tape Emulators. This is a must in your everyday mix tool kit.
Spot on emu
It's everybody's workhorse comp faithfully emulated with all the juice! What more can one ask for?
Hard to master but great results
I struggled a lot getting the most out of this. It is pretty difficult imo and sometimes you get lost because tweaking one thing has a different effect on other things.
But with some patience you can get a very big sound. It can get the max out of the total dynamic range you need to achieve.
Not cheap but still worth it if you want an aggressive compressor/limiter.
Amaizing plug, very punchy tracks !
Get the level out...
I had used the hardware in an SSL room a few years ago and loved it. Now I have the plug in and can experiment in my studio
with small tweeks and mods.. This is the most amazing drum buss compressor for evening out the toms and snare. The ranny mod and release times are key! Thanks Emperical Labs and UA for making this tool.
All the crunch I've been looking for
Love using this set on my synthetic drums and bass to unleash a devastatingly crunchy sound. All that, and it stays nice and warm. Super useful.
Great on Bass and drums.
I use it mainly on bass it tames the dynamics and it make sit sit well in the mix with the kick and the rest of the low end, I use it as well in the drums bus with great results. Sometimes I use the JR in guitars as well.
I love the way it can give life and warmth to my mix !! when you know the price for the real 1...
a must have !!
Great on vocals!
I found myself fattening up vocals with the FATSO nearly every time since I accidentally put it on a vocal track.
That 'umph'! Like no other
The warmth it adds. Is like hot sauce on fried chicken! This was my first purchase, a must have!
