Cableguys TimeShaper review by MusicRadar

A product from

One of three new plugins in Cableguys’ Shaper line (the other two being FilterShaper Core and WidthShaper), TimeShaper (which runs in the VST/AU ShaperBox plugin - see What’s in the ShaperBox) modulates the position of a virtual ‘playhead’ in the incoming audio signal relative to its linear playback position. 

This results in all manner of glitching, beat repeating, stuttering, warping, scratching, reversing, tape stop/start and pitching effects. 

The modulation signal itself is generated by an LFO, the waveform of which is drawn into the graphical curve editor that dominates the GUI. The speed of the LFO can be tempo-synced to the host DAW or set manually in Hz. Most of the time, you’ll be running it synced, although un-synced mode, maxing out as it does at 5.24kHz, certainly has plenty of FM/AM/ PM-esque creative potential for those who dare to push the boundaries.

Pro’s

  • Curve editor is great.
  • Three frequency bands.

Con’s

  • Can’t bypass individual bands.
  • No manual.

Our Verdict

A clever new application of Cableguys’ LFO-driven framework, TimeShaper is creative, fun and priced just right.
