Cableguys has updated the public beta version of its upcoming FilterShaper 3 effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.
The latest beta version of Cableguys FilterShaper 3.
New beta is up! Almost all UI fine-tunings have been done, changed the color from red to orange for better readability, we introduced preset categories in the preset browser, and both filter cutoffs can be linked.
Plus the stuff which we added with the previous beta: Linking of LFOs between parameters, a nice fade effect when switching between modulations to illustrate the changing of LFOs.
FilterShaper 3 can currently crash in some rare cases when using the selection tool in the waveform area (click and drag to select multiple points and move them, resize them..). Steffen is working on fixing that right now.
FilterShaper 3 for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) will cost 69 EUR / $89 USD. During the beta period, it is available to pre-order by purchasing FilterShaper 2 at 49 EUR / $69 USD (which includes a free update to version 3).

Inear Display has launched Rmpx4, a multi effect processor focused on modulations.
Based around three classic effects (multimode filter, pitchshifter and delay), its aim is to generate evolving variations of the input audio by crossfading between two instances of each effect and modulating their key parameters using an extensive array of control modules.
4 LFOs with optional tempo sync and 2 envelope followers can have their output inverted or combined using mixers and multipliers. From subtle dub delays to mad glitch sequences, rmpx4 will help you generate complex variations of your original ideas.
- 2 filters with lowpass, highpass and bandpass modes.
- 2 pitchshifters with buffer size and feedback settings.
- 2 delay lines with tempo sync and time interpolation.
- Crossfade control to morph between instances of each effect.
- Mix controls for the pitchshifter and delay modules + global Dry/Wet control.
- 4 LFOs with optional tempo sync.
- 2 envelope followers.
- 2 modulation signals inverters.
- 2 modulation signals mixers.
- 2 modulation signals multipliers.
- Processed signal gain control.
- Optional DC blocker in the output module.
- Panic button to clean the delay lines if needed.
- MIDI Learn.
- MIDI Program Change Support.
- Vector based resizable user interface (Windows and OS X only).
- Cross-platform presets.
- 111 factory presets.
- Lifetime free updates for registered customers.
The plugin is available to purchase at the introductory 50% discount for one week.

Cableguys has posted a demonstration video of the upcoming FilterShaper 3 effect plug-in which is currently in public beta.
FilterShaper 3 takes a giant leap into unconventional sound design with an advanced approach to filtering.
Two powerful filters, freely editable modulation curves, and an immensely flexible modulation framework give you practically unlimited options.
The new Sallen-Key type filters deliver a rich, warm, intricate sound. From subtle nuances to giant wobbles, surgically-precise control and sidechain effects.
FilterShaper 3 for Windows and Mac is available to pre-order for 49 EUR / $69 USD until its release (price will be 69 EUR / $89 USD).

Robert Henke has announced the release of LFO 2.0, a free device rack for Ableton Live.
LFO 2.0 is the result of trying to build the best general purpose swiss knife LFO for myself. It needs Ableton Live 9.x with Max4Live installed.
It offers three basic ways of modulating a target: Directly via Live’s engine, (Engine) which disables manual control of the target parameter and is perfect for fast modulations. Or via a method similar to manually turning a knob on the user interface (GUI), which can create automation data when recording.
And, as a third mode it can put out the modulation as audio signal (Audio) which is useful for creating control voltages for analog synthesizers.
The device is a free download at Robert Henke’s website.

Justus Kandzi has announced the Brute LFO, a powerful low frequency oscillator that modulates your analog gear.
If you have a hardware synth that allows you to use external gear to modulate the pitch, the filter, or any other parameter, just plug the Brute LFO into the CV in and start playing.
It consists of three separate LFOs. LFO 1 and 2 can be controlled using the control elements in the top half of the screen. The big knob in he middle sets the rate of both the LFOs. Additionally you can change the waveforms of the LFOs, detune LFO 2 and change its phase. The amount knob in the top half also sets the overall amount of the modulation.
The elements on the bottom half (LFO 3) can be used to modulate the frequency of LFO 1 and 2.
And the brute switch destroys everything!
Bruto LFO for iOS is available to purchase for $3.99 USD.
