Escalator is a combination of compression, saturation & distortion that allows you to quickly colour your sound with a variety of flavours.

Instantly energize your sound with the turn of a knob.
Apply lighter settings to get thicker sounds without the mud or ‘crank it’ for a more aggressive sound without all that harshness.

my saturation plugins. It’s not only easier
