SATOBI approximations anyone?

I have been using modified custom image settings lately and enjoying the results and experiments with them. I am currently liking @Christianrock’s unmuted-muted profile as it gives a more subdued older style look. I have been intrigued by the Satobi profile and was wondering if anyone has tweaked an existing profile to mimic the Satobi one.

In the K-30 I found some similarity to the 'Satobi' with the 'Muted' setting, basically desaturates the colors making them closer to pastel colors.

If you use the Pentax Digital Camera Utility (latest version) SATOBI is now one of the options … you can even apply it to an image taken with a *istD let alone anything newer … click, click, done

I got my KP in 2020, so it probably isn’t the latest version. I will have to look into it. I have been busy lately and haven’t used DCU, just jpeg and then transferring files with any minor tweaks on my computer at work (but don’t tell my boss!!)

Ok, I have been using a “muted modification” lately and like it. I looked at the Ricoh website with the custom image settings, but it is hard to judge.

The latest version (v5.9.4) is available here Software Downloads : Support & Service | RICOH IMAGING
The easiest way to install it is as an update to the program from the CD that came with your camera, but there's a relatively simple "workaround" if you haven't installed the program and/or the CD isn't "immediately available".
The latest version is somewhat more "user friendly" as well as having more options.
There are also some "undocumented" features discussed here https://pentaxofficial.com/tsukaitaose/3469/ (in Japanese, you'll probably need a translator) and onwards through the links at the bottom of the page.
They really get quite enthusiastic about the program and apologise for the lack of documentation!

Ok I checked it out. I have the CD in the camera box. I’ll see what I can do in the near future. Thank you!

I have created a User profile (which I have called Satobi!) on my KP and have used it where I have thought it would work. When I get home I can have a look and give you the recipe - it isn't mine as I found it here on the forum.[COLOR="Silver"]

I just returned from a 3-week trip through Philadelphia, Boston, Acadia NP, and New York City! I used a similar muted profile for most of the trip and was very pleased with it!
