Powered by Curve's unique modulations engine, MidiShaper brings Curve's flexible yet powerful LFOs and envelopes to the user's favorite synthesizers and effects.

Four LFOs and four envelope generators work together in a sophisticated modulations matrix that can be set up to output modulated pitch, modwheel, channel aftertouch or any MIDI control messages.

MidiShaper's LFOs can run infinitely or be retriggered, synced to a host sequencer from a buzzy 1/128 to an expansive 32 bars, set to the played note, or run from 0.02 Hz up to the audible range and brain frequency. Like Curve, MidiShaper features completely editable waveforms for its LFOs.

If the user's plugin or host sequencer allows for MIDI control, MidiShaper is a great tool at hand to create vivid, inspiring sounds and bring the flexibility of Curve to software plugins, hardware synthesizers, MIDI VJ tools, lighting consoles and 1980's MIDI keyboards.

I ended up purchasing MidiShaper, but I was really hesitant. Getting it to work in your DAW can be really frustrating. The restrictive nature of the demo version did not help at all. For a product this frustrating Cableguys should consider a much less restrictive demo policy like FabFilter uses. It also wouldn't hurt if this included something like loopMIDI or MIDI-Ox. Oh, and I am pretty certain there isn't a manual at the time of this post.

Hello Greg, I am sorry to hear that you have trouble with MidiShaper. You can demo the full program for an unlimited time, the only restriction is that you can only one instance at a time, and that you can't save presets.

We don't have a manual, but we have tutorials here:

http://www.cableguys.de/midi-shaper.html.

MidiShaper outputs MIDI data. Routing MidiShaper to external outboard equipment is simple to do via external MIDI ports.

Using MidiShaper to control software instruments and effects can be relatively simple as in Reaper and Ableton Live, can be complex with pitfalls as in Apple Logic, or needs some special tricks as in Sonar. It all depends on how well the host sequencer of your choice handles internal MIDI routings and automation. If you succeed, you'll get super-flexible LFOs and envelopes added to your favorite hardware devices, to your sequencer's controls and to your software synthesizers and effects.

I've just purchased MidiShaper and it's great! however, i have one feature suggestion. i wanted to control permut8 with it, but permut8 only accepts MIDI notes as control source for bits, not CC, while MidiShaper only works with CC. is it possible to add MIDI note output as well in the future? i would imagine it would work the same way CC does, except for one could optionally set a center note and a range. a scale snap would be icing on the cake, but even basic MIDI note functionality would be excellent to have. this would work great with permut8 as well as synths for doing quick ramps and glide madness.

Hello Burillo, .

thank you for your suggestion. So far we have no plans to add MIDI note functionality to MidiShaper - I am sorry.
However we are thankful for your suggestion and we will keep in it mind when we consider new features.

Best regards.
