Channel Robot releases Shapiro 2a Shape-Shifting Soft Synth - VST/AU/Stand-Alone

Channel Robot

Channel Robot has announced the availability of Shapiro 2, an eight oscillator synth, offering a different approach to sound-generation, using oscillators in matched pairs and allowing you to modulate the output in a range of different ways.

Outputs from the oscillator-pairs passes through their own dynamic "shaping" processes. First is an FM shaper - this isn't FM synthesis, instead it's using a sine wave to shape the timbral output of the oscillator pairs. Next is a "classic" Wave Shaper, this is followed by Channel Robot's one-of-a-kind Field processor, that uses impulse responses in a convolution engine to move the timbre of the output. Finally there is a dedicated multi-mode filter section.

The output of all four voices is then combined and passed through the comprehensive effects section, then into a legato system derived from Channel Robot's work on orchestral ROMplers.

Shapiro 2 allows an extensive control over where and when modulation can be applied, and the shape the modulation takes, to give you shifting and changing audio output. Modulators include Envelopes, User-drawn LFOs, variable-step and tempo Gates, Sample & Hold, Keyboard and Velocity.

Shapiro 2 also comes with a per-voice Arpeggiator (so 4 arps) to allow you to build interesting and unique melodic content.

Shapiro 2 has extensive CC control management and is MPE enabled. It includes per-voice pitch-bend and per-voice keyboard splits.

On top of all this is Shapiro 2's randomization and morphing system - randomize any number of voices, morph between two different "slots" (and include or exclude any voice in this process) and include or exclude a voice in preset loading. All this functionality is designed to give you very quick and easy access to generating new sound presets, that are unique to you.

Available as VST2, AU and stand-alone versions for macOS and Windows.

Intro Price: $50.00 from ChannelRobot.com (Reg. $75.00).
