In [Madeon's reddit AMA](http://www.reddit.com/r/Music/comments/304t92/hey_im_madeon_im_french_and_i_make_electronic/) from March 2015, reddit user Gappar asks Madeon, "What is your favourite VST and why is it Sausage Fattener?", to which Madeon responds, "I do use it from time to time !"more
Kaskade is listed as a user of the Dada Life Sausage Fattener on Dada Life's page.
Great plugin in that couldn't get any simpler with only 2 knobs.
Briliant Dada Life Plugin. Looking for a lil more growl or oomph in your sound. Turn up the fatness knob for more saturation.
Even if this was the most crappy plugin in the world (it's not), I'd be using it all the time just to piss of the weenie.
Smashing cool results on the master
In this photo can see the software Felguk use, and they say: "The yellow plug-in with the smiley sausage is the acclaimed Sausage Fattener made by fellow DJs and producers, Dada Life. We don’t really know what this little dude does, its something like limiting, spreading the stereo image, EQing and more. But, it does what it's supposed to - make things sound fat!"more
I love this! It allows me to add more "character" to my sounds. Sometimes I feel like I'm just missing something small from a sound and I through Sausage Fattener on it and POW! It just feels right :)
First and foremost, this thing is hilarious. The facial expressions of the little sausage guy provide hours of in-studio entertainment. As far as actual practicality and usefulness go, you should definitely practice moderation with the Sausage Fattener. Overuse of this aptly named plugin will turn your waveform into a literal sausage and suck all of the dynamics out of your final product. If used carefully, it can add some nice warmth to a synth or bassline, but again, moderation is key.
$30 actually went a long way here. I love this plugin for a few reasons: it's only got 3 knobs and is so simple you don't even need presets (which aren't provided anyway), it only costs $30, you can use it on basically anything, and it can do a few different things (compression, distortion, etc). The part that makes it really stand out, however, is the attention to graphical detail. The knobs vibrate when there's sound that is being played through it, and the sausage either smiles or scowls as you turn up the fatness parameter. I highly recommend this plugin for its ease of use and the fact that it has a sausage staring at you.
There's not much to this effect. It has three knobs, one for "fatness," another for "color," and a gain knob. While some may believe that it can liven up any poor quality mix by simply placing the effect on the master channel, it's far from the truth. It's not one-stop solution to fixing a mix or having a solid master. I like to use it subtly on certain parts of the track and to add punch to drums. Favorite part about the effect however, is when you make the sausage angry. Kills both my ears and my sense of humor.
