Here is our first plugin – the Sausage Fattener! People always ask us how we get our greasy sound…here is the answer. Hook up this fat bastard to your favorite DAW (AU and VST on both PC/Mac) and get dirty. The plugin is already used by Tiësto, Kaskade, Diplo, Laidback Luke and others (see below for more).
The Sausage Fattener only has two knobs. But don’t be fooled. With those seemingly simple parameters you can create loads of different sounds. Use the Sausage Fattener on a single channel with moderate settings as a musical compressor. Turn it up and you have a dirty bastard of distortion. But you can also use the plugin on a bus (for example all the drums and the bass) or the whole track as a mastering plugin.
The Sausage Fattener is used by Tiësto, Kaskade, Diplo, Laidback Luke, Chuckie, Sebastian Ingrosso, Dirty South, Hardwell, Angger Dimas, Frank E, Zedd, Lazy Rich, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike, Marcus Schossow, John Dahlbäck and many other DJ/producers.
There is no RTAS-version available.
Just see what Laidback Luke thinks about our little creation:
“Ever since I stepped away from Fruity Loops I was looking for a plugin like this. And you did it. Instantly hooked, and loving it!”

Q: What about OS X Lion?!?!
A: Yes, it works.
Q: Is the Sausage Fattener made with SynthEdit or similar program?
A: Nope, it’s developed by us together with Tailored Noise.
Q: Will you release more plugins?
A: Yes! This is just the first!
Q: Why a sausage?
A: We’re always happy with a track when it looks like a fat sausage.
Q: Is this plugin just a gimmick?
A: You’re talking to us?!?! Hell no. We always have a special chain of effects that we use when creating our tracks. So we let the developers analyze those effects and create the plugin from our settings.
Q: I ordered the plugin but haven’t received a download link?
A: Check your spam folder. Wait for an hour or two, if you still haven’t received it please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: Does it work with Pro Tools?
A: Right now there’s no RTAS-version. It might work with a converter, but we haven’t had time to play around with it.
Q: Does it work with GarageBand?
A: The Sausage Fattener should work with all VST/AU-systems.
Q: Why doesn’t it sound beefy on really low level sounds?
A: You need to pull the gain up until it’s almost red. The Sausage Fattener is a combination of several dynamic effects – and the key is to “drive” the signal as hard as you want – from mild compression to hard distortion.
Q: Does this plugin make my songs so good that I just need to add it – and then I will be a superstar-DJ?
A: There’s no holy grails when it comes to plugins. You will still need to make good music and know how to tweak your shit. In the end: there are no “magical” plugins – not even if they have an angry sausage in the interface. But it will certainly make your tracks and sounds greasier and fatter.
