Edit with ease

Mix and create

Get inspired: transform loops, beats, vocals, melodies or basslines into addictive hooks to kickstart your next track. Then perfect your mix with sample-accurate sidechaining, punchy compression, stereo expansion and more.


Uses:

  • Get louder, tighter mixes: Gain impact and clarity, and add 'bounce' with easy multiband sidechaining in VolumeShaper.
  • Expand your stereo range: Inject stereo movement just where it's needed – animate hi-hats, shuffle synths, and more.
  • Make drums punch harder: Edit transients and trim flabby hits with Pens in VolumeShaper 6. Dial in hard-hitting visual compression.
  • Make synths sparkle: From subtle movement to glitchy ear-candy, combine Shapers to make your synth lines dance.
  • Design motion-packed riffs: Get creative! Turn single notes into crazy TimeShaper 2 melodies, add pumping filter patterns, and more.
  • Generate addictive hooks: Stuck for a hook? Feed your loops into ShaperBox 2 for wild variations you'd never have thought of.
  • Isolate drum hits: Extract kicks and other percussive hits with precision filtering. Then use them in your own tracks.

Features

7 Cableguys effects

Time, Drive, Crush, Volume, Filter, Pan and Width Shapers come together in ShaperBox 2. Analogue-like zero-delay feedback filters, multiband distortion, compression based on classic British mixing consoles, sample-accurate volume modulation, mid-side expansion, lo-fi bitcrushing, and much more – all in one CPU-efficient plugin.

Cableguys quality

ShaperBox 2 uses high-quality DSP throughout, for a sound relied upon by professional producers such as David Guetta, BT, Madeon, Mick Schultz, and many more. Sample-accurate LFOs for ultimate precision. Oversampling and anti-aliasing for artifact-free FX. Linkwitz-Riley multiband crossovers for flat frequency response and zero latency. MIDI Trigger smoothing for click-free sidechains. And more.

LFOs that you design

At the heart of every Shaper is a fully editable LFO. From choppy rhythms to organic pulsations, any wave shape you can imagine is just clicks away with Cableguys' editing tools. Lock your LFOs to DAW tempo with sample accuracy, or trigger in any rhythm with MIDI notes.

Introducing Pens

Designing the ideal LFO just got even easier with three new powerful, easy-to-grasp Pens. Draw crisp lines, smooth arcs and flowing S-curves. Redraw transients in a click, rapidly build rhythmic patterns, and more. Switch back to classic single-node editing anytime.

Flexible envelope followers

Crush, Filter, Pan and Width Shapers can react automatically to the dynamics of your beats, loops, melodies – anything. Make filters open with each snare hit. Pan percussion dynamically. Widen synths as they grow louder. Trigger from other tracks in your project using sidechain routing.

Designer compression

With a British-inspired compressor inside VolumeShaper 6, you see compression on the same large graph as your volume edits. Get controlled punch and defined dynamics for drums, basslines, vocals and more. Still need more control? Grab a Pen and refine the gain curve till it's just right.

Shapers that do more

Use 3 filters at once – including new Phaser types – with multiband FilterShaper Core 2. Get retro tape/vinyl 'wow' with TimeShaper 2's Fine mode. Boost transients with VolumeShaper 6's Gain control. And spread sounds wide with psychoacoustic Haas panning in PanShaper 3.

Multiband made easy

Every Shaper can be split into 3 bands, for tightly focused processing. Compress the bass. Stutter the mids. Reverse the highs. New for ShaperBox 2, steep 24dB crossovers join the classic 6 and 12dB models, for even greater precision.

Packs of inspiration

Explore 1000+ pro presets, and share patches via the Cableguys Preset Cloud. Find inspiration with Packs: curated collections of the very best presets for lo-fi FX, compression, scratching, and more. Speed your workflow with 1-click Quick Presets for essentials like sidechain ducking.
