Cableguys has announced the release of a public beta version of VolumeShaper, a simple but unique gate VST effect plug-in for Windows that allows detailed modulation of a signal's volume.
You can draw any volume curve you like shaping hard-synced or analogue-sounding rhythms. Create interesting rhythmic strings, shape a bass sound, destroy vocal recordings, create vivid shaker rhythms out of high-passed white noise, etc.
You can change all parameters via automation (if your host sequencer can handle it). Everything. Choose which wave is in use at any position in your song, change the loop length, record and play back any wave point movements and assign any hardware controller to any parameter in VolumeShaper. Even with heavy modulations, with tempo changes in the host or jumping at different positions of a song, the modulation always stays in sync.
VolumeShaper is free to use in a single instance. To use more instances, it is €10 / $15 until the Beta is over. Thereafter it will be €15 / $20.
