Shaperbox is a rhythmic tool designed to spark creativity and musicality throughout its interface. This plugin holds on to a multiband feature, where you can process the low, mid, and high-frequency ranges individually at once. Determine the right time range, step mode, LFO mode, length, and wave shape. All of these features will give you access to an infinite number of periodic possibilities.

Now that Shaperbox 3 is available, you can expect a range of newly included features:

  • LiquidShaper, a new flanger/phaser shaper effect.
  • Wave Editing, with one click you can add angled breakpoints just like an EQ. ‘Create curved, stepped, or ramped FX patterns in seconds, and bring rhythmic life to your music.’
  • Beat Locking, sync your audio file to beats and bars. Choose between a numerous amount of triplets, straight, dotted, or free syncing modes.
  • Audio Triggering, all 9 trigger features can now be enabled at once, on any sound. Create surprising beat effects, time twists, and gritty envelopes.
  • External Sidechain Input, enabling this feature will trigger the sidechain when external signal information enters the plugin.
  • External Sidechain View, see your kick’s graphic information overlap your bass in order to set the right sidechain point.
  • New Browser, choose between 600 presets categorized into rhythmic, motion, sidechain, color, pitch & time, mixing, and sound design. Favorite any sound to your list or create your own presets.

The Cableguys Shaperbox 3 is available in VST 2, VST 3, AU, and AAX for Windows 7, 8, 10, or 11 and macOS X 10.13 or later. Take advantage of the ongoing Black Friday sale to get the plugin for just $89 (usually $301).
