Cableguys VolumeShaper 4 Review at Computer Music Magazine

A product from
The newest version of this LFO-centred plugin for the makers of Curve and FilterShaper gives you hand-drawn amplitude modulation.
 
The latest release from German developers Cableguys is an LFO-driven volume modulation plugin that improves upon its v3 predecessor with multiband functionality, a simple spectrogram, online preset library, more preset waveshapes and a redesigned interface.
 
At the bottom left of the GUI is the new Band Split display, wherein up to three frequency bands are defined for processing with their own LFO shapes. The slope of each crossover can be set to 6 or 12dB/octave, and the Zoom button expands the display to fill the whole interface. It's a simple but effective set up.
 
 

Verdict

For

  • Excellent waveshape design and visual feedback
  • Multiband splitting
  • MIDI triggering
  • Cloud-based preset library
Against
  • No Manual
  • No scaling in displays
 
 
Our complaints are minor, and VolumeShaper 4 is already a go-to in our plugins folder. At this price, it's a winner.
 

9/10
