Y HMS (Hybrid Mid Saturator) is created with the idea to use harmonic saturation to enhance clarity, without effecting the extreme frequencies too much. I've created this preset by applying tube saturation to the mid frequencies only, followed by a moderate level of tape saturation applied to the entire spectrum. The effect is rather subtle, so you might need to chain 2 presets in a raw to clearly hear what it does.
Your welcome. I made this preset because I've noticed most saturation effects either add too much "dirt" (for my taste), or hype the high-frequencies. This preset sounds clean/pristine without altering the spectrum too much, so it's good for adding articulation without using an EQ.
it makes the mid/highs somewhat juicy, less harsh and a little thicker. it makes a nice "tone". and it is fun to play with the drive slider fully up and down, to get an idea, what the program does and to dial in the sound.
