The Sauce Audio FX Plugin, DJ Swivel’s Premier Creative Tool for Dramatic vocal processing

The Sauce brings you all the essential ingredients you need to creatively transform your vocals in one simple plugin. Oh, and it sounds great on drums and instruments too. Find your flavor with The Sauce now!



Sculpt & shift the pitch and formant modulation of both mono and polyphonic audio in real time. These effects are commonly used to manipulate vocals, giving that “vocal chop” sound heard in countless Pop, Dance, and Hip-Hop hits. But if you’re feeling adventurous try it on drums, you won’t be disappointed!

Sugar & Spice

Every sauce needs a little sugar and spice. Add your choice of harmonic saturation or overdrive distortion on the Spice knob, and chorus or flanger effects on the sugar knob.


Use these two parallel compressor options to tame or aggressively squeeze your input signal. These two compressor options can also be fed by a sidechain input.


Add a little air with 3 different convolution reverb options, all modeled after some of DJ Swivel’s favorites from both past and present. A small room, a medium plate, or a large hall. This knob is treated as a mix knob allowing a 100% wet signal, enabling The Sauce to be used as an FX return.


Drip is a classic modern delay and echo modulation, with built in high and low pass filters, along with a ping pong option. Simple, yet effective.


The Sauce allows for all of the above effects to be processed both as a whole, or individually across three user definable multiband layers. This allows for endless possibilities of sounds and effects never heard before, and not currently available in a standalone plugin like this.

The Sauce is one of those plugins that instantly gives us a new creative energy every time we use it.

The Sauce is a game changer. We’re constantly looking for new ways to separate ourselves musically, and The Sauce is one of those tools that gives us something new and exciting every time we use it.

Getting vocal treatments right is the key to creating hooks with impact. The Sauce is a super powerful tool for dialing in the right flavor for your vocal chops and leads. Other formant shifters only offer limited controls, so it's really useful to be able to split your sound into separate bands and only treat the parts you need, so you get impact with clarity and control.

I’m literally going to have to go back and redo this whole Lil Wayne album. In 2 minutes I made a whole new vibe for him with The Sauce. I love it!
