"I'm working on my album and VolumeShaper is on half the channels of every song, no joke. I use it for a variety of sidechain compression effects on mainly synths and drum loops, and it's easy to experiment with different rhythms of the compression."
Steve Aoki. American Electro House musician, record producer and music executive. In 2012, Pollstar designated Aoki as the highest grossing dance artist in North America from tours.
Madeon
My most used plugin — I have an instance on practically every channel of every song I produce, for sidechaining using MIDI triggers.
Madeon. French house/electro house/nu-disco/pop producer
David guetta
David Guetta on cutting a kick to fit with the bassline: "Very very recently I've found a way to do it that is really amazing, I actually did it here.. the sidechain that I am using with the bass is something that is called VolumeShaper".
David Guetta. David Guetta - EDM Superstar

For Dynamic Mixes & Pinpoint Sound

VolumeShaper lets you shape the levels of any audio signal in pinpoint detail.

From multiband sidechain compression effects to extreme gating, from tempo-synced stutter to precise sample-shaping — VolumeShaper provides a wealth of creative musical effects with a visual approach to volume.

VolumeShaper features multiband waveform-based editing, a comprehensive selection of preset curves, a precise oscilloscope, a big spectrum view and an updated preset library. It runs sample-accurate in sync with your DAW, in Hz mode up to the audible range or retriggered via MIDI.

New for version 5, VolumeShaper now runs inside Cableguys' exclusive new ShaperBox creative effects rack. Use VolumeShaper on its own, or stack it up with other Cableguys Shapers to create elaborate, multilayered effects for your productions. Take advantage of the new MIDI Trigger system to switch curves on the fly with the press of a MIDI key. And enjoy improved CPU and RAM efficiency along with even better-sounding interpolation.

Try it out - download the demo (located by the window that displays VolumeShaper 5' price) and let VolumeShaper 5 loose on your audio productions!

Ducking AKA Sidechain Compression Effect

Essential for a well-defined kick and bass, the well-known ducking effect of sidechain compression creates extra rhythmic drive and provides space and definition. VolumeShaper gives you this same effect with absolute control — just draw the curve you want. Simpler, faster, and more precise than using a compressor. You can also trigger the LFO via MIDI notes — choose one of the 'MIDI Triggered' LFO types, then route MIDI notes to the plugin via your DAW.

Multiband Shaping

Use different curves for bass, mids and highs for added precision. The multiband split lets you duck out the bass when the kick hits, or duck the mids to provide space for the snare. Or gate the kick in a drum loop by editing the low band and leaving the mids/highs untouched. VolumeShaper makes it easy to apply this essential technique precisely, for accurate and dynamic mixes.

Define Your Audio Loops

VolumeShaper's oscilloscope displays the incoming audio, helping you to precisely define audio levels. In a drum loop, regulate levels for snare, hi-hat, or anything else with just a few clicks, or edit unwanted notes out of a loop. From smooth bezier curves to hard cuts, you decide. Sync the effect to your DAW from 1/128 note up to 32 bars, sync to the frequency of the played note, or let it run freely at ranges from 0.02 Hz up to 5.24 kHz.

Shape Drums

Go in deep and use VolumeShaper as a precise volume curve for your synth or drum sounds. Set it to trigger whenever a specific MIDI note is played, and simply draw the shape you need. You can even shape different frequency ranges independently — shorten only the high frequencies of a kick, for example. It's effectively a gate, but you have total control over the length and shape of the volume tail.

Audio Destruction

For punishing bit-crusher effects, run VolumeShaper's LFO fast — right up to the limits of the audible range (Tip: set the LFO to 'Hertz (Retrig.)'). For a less drastic effect, limit the modulation to specific frequencies — try a medium-width mid band — by moving the band sliders. And for ring modulation effects, set the LFO to the frequency of the MIDI notes that you play.

Stutter & Tremolo

Simple but effective — VolumeShaper breathes new life into this classic effect. Detailed control options let you create stutter and tremolo with a twist — try applying envelopes to specific frequency ranges, or using a custom curve tailored to fit a specific loop or MIDI note
