You've probably seen the ads about the Thickify VST plugin, in this quick article we'll compare the differences between Thickify and Sausage Fattener.
What is the difference between Thickify and Sausage Fattener?
That’s a great question! Thickify and Sausage Fattener are both excellent effect plugins, however, dynamically they are very different.
Thickify uses a completely different saturation algorithm and thus produces a distinctly different sound (you can listen to the demos here). Thickify also provides additional customization knobs that allow you to tailor the effect specifically to each individual sound, so you can finally find that “perfect” saturation.
Here's a break down of exactly how Thickify makes your sounds full, fat, and alive:
1. Main Thickness Knob
Thickify’s Main Thickness Knob is the most important parameter within the plugin.
It’s job is simple - make your sound fatter!
The Main Thickness Knob accomplishes this by processing the input signal through a unique saturation algorithm that we developed. This algorithm adds harmonics and a series of slight distortions to the tone, which is why Thickify works so great on mid-range and bass signals.
Every sound is different. Most often, you’ll want to adjust the other knobs & sliders within Thickify to find the perfect combination for your sound.
2. Tone Slider
The Tone Slider controls the frequency of the harmonics that are being processed within Thickify’s Main Thickness Knob.
This feature is great for fine-tuning your saturation.
For example, if you’re using a mid / high range sound, sometimes you’ll want to adjust the tone to a higher frequency to avoid “distortion-like” artifacts.
You can also experiment with the tone to add new textures and styles to your sounds. The creativity is in your hands!
3. Stress Knob
The Stress Knob makes the Thickify effect more aggressive.
When increased, this knob violently increases the input gain of the signal and specific harmonics before equalizing it- resulting in a more “in your face” style.
4. Drive Knob
The Drive Knob in Thickify will process your sound through a unique distortion algorithm.
This distortion algorithm effortlessly brings life and character to your sounds, without sacrificing the dynamics.
5. Gain Slider
Thickify tends to increase the gain of your sound’s output signal significantly. For this reason, we have added this slider to decrease the output level post Thickify.
This can save you time and help you avoid clipping your sounds when using additional effect plugins after Thickify.
6. Thick Boi Johnny
Johnny wants muscles, but he hates the gym. Only your tunes can give him the gains he needs...
