You see, as someone who's spent and invested a lot of time into creating little music tracks, I do know first hand what it's like to have your music called trash. So it's not like I'm talking just to talk here. I'm assuming you probably don't have pockets loaded with cash to buy studio time nor were you blessed with family members who provide musical instruments, talent lessons, etc. That's why you're attempting to make music on your computer! And let's be honest: Whatever genre you do as a producer, you are considering or already make use of the numerous, diverse music making programs there are out there (FL Studio, Cubase, Logic, Virtual Instruments, and so on)
When you as a music maker decide "okay it's time to upload my music to the internet for the world to hear" you might be super excited to get started and fired up to get those plays coming in. Although, you got a couple of likes on your first track and maybe genuine feedback, there's something missing... This "hit or miss" item is what really separates the amateurs from pros.

For a lot of people, there is no "9 to 5" but the same concept of conformity still applies. It's always been how you do things, not why or when you do them. Ask someone who's wealthy and they will tell you exactly that... (No, at the moment I am not wealthy, but eventually will be );
So when speaking in mucical terms, what is saturation? Well according to Soundbridge, tape saturation is a phenomenon which stands for analog tape recording. It describes a state in which voltage level is exceeding the tape`s ability to record it. When the signal is being sent to a tape recorded, the voltage is sent to an electromagnet in the recording head. The plastic film (or tape) has a surface made of oxide iron powder. To record the signal on the tape, the recording head of the recorder magnetize each of the iron oxide particles on the tape by varying amounts over time. This becomes a linear representation of the original alternating current and this is where the saturation occurs. You're about to find out some of the best FREE plugins which emulate tape compressors of the past.
