SKnote has released Grasso, a complete saturation and dynamics unit for Windows and Mac.

It is NOT a compressor, no thresholds. It is NOT an envelope shaper, no triggering.

It includes some special features like level-independent dynamics, tube-saturation stage, dynamic and level-independent pre-drive filtering, spank control and a modeled power-supply.

It is very useful to add color and dynamic control to mixes and single tracks, from subtle to extreme.
