T-Warmer By Techivation
In early August 2022, Techivation developed another excellent new product, this time a really innovative harmonic saturation plugin called T-Warmer.
This plugin is currently available for $39 and also you can get their bundle deal and save more. Also, if you own any of their premium plugins you can get this plugin for only $29. In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at this plugin to see what it has to offer.
T-Warmer is the latest plugin from Techivation, and it is a very versatile harmonic saturation plugin. This plugin, like all of Techivation’s products, appears to be quite simple, yet all of the magic happens behind the hood. This plugin enhances your sound by adding harmonic saturation and a pleasing EQ curve.
If you’ve used any of Techivation’s products, you know that each of their plugins has a unique set of options/modes. The T-Warmer features four unique saturation settings, ranging from gentle to aggressive. Phat (Fills up the sound nicely with musical harmonic saturation, making it thicker and phatter), Smooth (Applies a more subtle kind of harmonic saturation to the sound), Hard (Ideal for creating unique aggressive sounds out of soft-sounding instruments in a mix), and Warm (Like ‘Phat,’ this mode helps to quickly make things sound thicker but also warmer). Let’s have a look at how each of these options affects your signal and learn more about T-Warmer.
The Phat option adds solidity, roundness, and really excellent musical harmonic saturation to your sound, making it thicker and phatter. It would be ideal for Bass Drum, Bass, Synths, and even vocals.

The smooth option gives a more delicate type of harmonic saturation to the sound, and it is quite clean and transparent. You may want to use this option to add more gentle saturation to your signal.

If you want a more intense saturation sound, select the Hard option. It’s great for making distinct aggressive tones out of soft-sounding sounds in a mix. It would be an excellent tool for sound design; I personally enjoy using it to reshape sounds and create something new from them.

I like the Warm option because, like the Phat setting, it adds warmth and richness to the sound, and, to me, it sounds similar to tape saturation. So adding a bit of this to your mix to smooth things out a bit more, or even using it on particular parts like a voice, would be a nice touch.

Techivation has created another terrific plugin. One of the most essential aspects of their goods that I appreciate is that they constantly come up with a fantastic design that is both minimal and user-friendly. As a result, the user will not be confused when using their plugins. It can be found in all of their products. They also sound fantastic. Because looks are not as important as sound in our field of work.
Since I first tried T-Warmer, it has quickly become my go-to saturation plugin. Because it offers several options in one plugin, you may find what you’re looking for quickly and continue working. Some plugins require you to spend some time learning their flow and understanding how they function, which may be detrimental, especially during the production stage, because you are wasting valuable creative time when producing. So, using plugins like T-Warmer, you get the preferred result and may move to the next stage. But don’t get me wrong: I have to mention that there are many amazing plugins on the market that are well worth your effort to learn them.
Like many Techivation products, you can test their plugins for 14 days before deciding whether or not to purchase them. Because, as I constantly mention in my articles, you must test the software or plugins you plan to buy to see whether they are suitable for your needs. And you are the only person who can tell. So take your time, try T-Warmer on different things, and then follow your instincts.
You can download the ‘T-Warmer’ from their official website (linked below). Again currently this plugin is for $39 and Techivation offers a very good deal on their bundle which includes all their products at a discounted price. You can try this plugin for free for a 14-days trial.
Also as mentioned before, if you own one of Techivation premium plug-ins, the price will change to $29 for you at the checkout.
