Seven Cableguys effects

Time, Filter, Pan, Volume, Width and Distortion Shapers come together in ShaperBox 2. Analogue-like zero-delay feedback filters, compression based on classic British mixing consoles, sample-accurate volume modulation, mid-side expansion, and much more – all in one CPU-efficient plugin.

LFOs that you design

At the heart of every Shaper is an LFO unlike any other. From choppy rhythms to organic pulsations, any wave shape you can imagine are just clicks away with Cableguys' famous editing tools. Lock your LFOs to DAW tempo with sample accuracy, or trigger in any rhythm with MIDI notes.

Introducing Pens

Designing the ideal LFO just got even easier with three powerful, easy-to-grasp Pens. Draw crisp lines, smooth arcs and flowing S-curves. Redraw transients in a click, rapidly build rhythmic patterns, and more. Switch back to classic single-node editing anytime.

Flexible envelope followers

Filter, Pan and Width Shapers can react automatically to the dynamics of your beats, loops, melodies – anything. Make filters open with each snare hit. Pan percussion dynamically. Widen synths as they grow louder. Trigger from other tracks in your project using sidechain routing.

Designer compression

With a high-quality, British-inspired compressor inside VolumeShaper 6, you see compression on the same large graph as your volume edits. Get that perfect punch and control for drums, basslines, vocals and more. Still not perfect? Grab a Pen and refine the gain curve until it is.

Shapers that do more

Use 3 filters at once – including new Phaser types – with multiband FilterShaper Core 2. Get retro tape/vinyl ‘wow’ with TimeShaper 2’s Fine mode. Boost transients with VolumeShaper 6's Gain control. And spread sounds wide with psychoacoustic Haas panning in PanShaper 3.

Multiband made easy

Every Shaper can be split into 3 bands, for tightly focused processing. Compress the bass. Stutter the mids. Reverse the highs. No limits on your creativity. Steep 24dB crossovers join the classic 6 and 12dB models, for even greater precision.

Packs of inspiration

Explore 1000+ pro presets, and share patches via the Cableguys Preset Cloud. Find inspiration with Packs, curated collections of the very best presets for lo-fi FX, compression, scratching, and more. Work even faster with 1-click Quick Presets for essentials like sidechain ducking.
