FilterShaper 3 takes a giant leap into unconventional sound design with two powerful filters, freely editable modulation curves, and an immensely flexible modulation framework.

The new Sallen-Key type filters deliver a rich, warm, intricate sound. Create complex, shifting, interweaving effects. Apply subtle nuances or giant wobbles. From filtersweeps and stereo tremolo to surgically-precise filter control and multiband sidechain effects.

Try it out — download the demo and let FilterShaper 3 loose on your audio productions.

Experiment and Explore

Start with two filters, running in serial or in parallel, plus a set of simple controls. Then set things in motion: All main controls have their own modulation section with two flexible LFOs and one envelope follower each. For advanced effects editing, each LFO in turn has its own speed and intensity control — each with its own LFO and envelope follower. And all LFOs can be MIDI triggered. Visual feedback on each control and oscilloscope views on each LFO keep you focused. And a community-powered, ever-growing library of presets provides starting points and inspiration for your own sounds.

Total Precision Control

FilterShaper 3 excels at surgically precise control. For pinpoint tweaking of the modulation curve and a close-up oscilloscope view, open up the detail panel. Filter out a specific beat in a loop. Tame a booming kick. Or shape a tired sample into something lively and vibrant. You have two filters, 60 LFOs, and 50 envelope followers at your fingertips — a detailed, interconnected toolbox for shaping your sound.

Advanced Multiband Sidechain Effects

As well as pinpoint editing, pulsing rhythmic effects, and left-field, alien craziness, FilterShaper 3 can deliver flexible, precisely timed sidechain compression effects. For multiband sidechain, set up filter one to manage the lows and assign filter two to the highs. Duck out the bass when the kick hits, take out the highs to emphasize a snare — simply draw the curve for each as required. Download the demo and try it out for yourself.

Filtershaper and Volumeshaper have plenty of use here for adding some weird oneshot or sequenced modulation or variations on the volume of single channel tracks.
Working with such clean and clear GUIs is just a breeze in terms of understanding at once what you're actually tweaking, even when in doubt, but, more importantly, the sound of the filter is indeed rich from scratch, and never dull or lacking life, even when not sequenced.
The possibilities of adding new nuances to some filter sequences are really astonishing, with all those waveforms available internally, all of them routable in endless ways to combine in life-injected filter movements with complex or weird evolution of settings.
In such many genres of electronic music like drum & bass or dubstep, where there's always some bassline evolving and rarely statically playing a pattern, or complex variations of breakbeat programming, such plugins are just plain heaven-sent to add quickly some tweaks that will “move” the effected sound, even while the variations of the settings are just quite subtle.
Filtershaper, in particular, apart from being a real good-sounding filter even when used in a static behaviour (meaning only as a “normal” LP/BP/BR/HP filter), is the choice to go when i need to start adding some “evolving” attitude with a filter on a track channel: the chance of controlling several aspects of the wavesequenced triggering to obtain complex modulation routing sequences, simply can answer to ANY need of adding some spice of life even to the dullest bassline or lead synth sounds.Read more
