Saturation I can actually use. I've got 3 go to saturation plugs & this is by far the most versatile. Being able to do band specific distortion is what is missing on my other favorites. Thermonic Culture Vulture is great but it's a bit of a hammer.
This can be as subtle or as gnarly as you like. Makes it very handy.
That said it's not like hitting tape. Nothing is.
When I need tape saturation, I hit tape.
Dunno why "tape" plugins are so popular...
Go to a goodwill, get a tape deck of some kind- reel to reel, cassette & hit tape if that's what you want. Likely cheaper than the plugin your buying. Just requires a bit of thought.

Saturn is actually my backup distortion behind Trash 2 and Ableton's Saturator, but it has proven itself useful many different times.
The multi-band controls are the best I've ever used and can be such a relief to use an plugin with an interface that is this easy to navigate.
