Shapiro 2 is 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 its using a sine wave to shape the timbral output of the oscillator pairs. Next is a "classic" Wave Shaper, this is followed by our 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 our work on orchestral ROMplers.

Shapiro 2 allows 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.
