Saturn - User Interface8:08
Mark introduces how this saturation and distortion plug-in works as well as the various parameters.
Mark explores the modulation section and creates further interesting effects to a bass guitar.
Volcano 2 - Parameters7:22
Here, we tour the User interface to establish where things are and what the various parameters do. Mark also discusses the method of routing the original signal into ‘Volcano 2’ and the direction through the filters and modulation areas.
Volcano 2 - Modulation Introduction6:57
Mark continues by looking at modulation and various routing configurations before showing modulation targets and sources.

For the final look at Volcano 2, we’ll audition various presets. Along the way, we’ll look at further modulation functions not seen so far.
One - Overview7:09
FabFilter’s One is the cut down synth precursor to Twin 2. Here, we’ll look through the various parameters and how they lock together to generate the sound.
Micro - Overview3:26
Micro is a simple one filter effect. Here, we’ll look at its UI and how the various parameters are positioned to make the filtering of signal streamlined.

Concise and Very Useful
I like this gent. He's very clear and covers a lot of stuff pretty quickly and painlessly. Only thing I can think of to suggest is I would have liked a bit more content: more complete coverage of the features - some were omitted entirely - more overview of the products at the beginning and a bit more demonstration of the s/w doing it's thing. Still, very well done.
