All in one CPU-efficient plugin.
Easier waveform editing NEW
Animate any effect over time with our easiest ever waveform-editing tools. Create curved, stepped, or ramped FX patterns in seconds, and bring rhythmic life to your music.
Locks to the beat
Sync your waveforms to beats and bars so they’re always locked to your music. Go from 1/4-note pumping FX to evolving multi-bar patterns and beyond. All with sample-tight accuracy.
Follows any rhythm NEW
Now you can trigger all 9 ShaperBox effects with any sound, for reactive time-twists, distortion envelopes, filter plucks, transient design, and any other triggered FX you can imagine.
Triggers from any track NEW
Want to duck your bass with VolumeShaper, but the kick isn’t 4×4? No problem! Just turn on the External Sidechain Input and Audio Triggering follows any kick rhythm.
And it’s not only for ducking basslines. Want to trigger a bitcrushing pattern on your synth every time the snare hits? Now you can.
External sidechain view NEW
See your kick drum overlaid on the bassline with VolumeShaper’s new Show External Sidechain feature. Draw the perfect ducking curve to match the contour of your kick, and lock your lows together like never before.
Every Shaper can be split into 3 bands, for tightly focused processing. Drive the bass. Stutter the mids. Reverse the highs. All 3 bands get their own LFO and Envelope Follower.
Dive deep into sound design! LiquidShaper gives you wild jet-plane flanging and deep, lush phasing in one Shaper. Create gentle stereo modulations… or monstrous robotic comb filter FX.
Enhanced browser NEW
Find your sound in a few clicks with more than 600 cleverly categorised presets. Filter by Shaper, save your faves, and find your custom presets.
