Cableguys has announced the release of TimeShaper, an effect plugin that allows you to shape the flow of time, providing a wide range of effects such as multiband stutter, reverse, scratch, tape-stop and glitch effects.
Just like a DJ scratching vinyl, TimeShaper lets you grab hold of time, slowing down or accelerating your music. Simply draw the exact LFO shape you need – our unique curve-editing tools make it fast and easy.
Stutter and glitch a synth or vocal line to create gritty edits for your EDM track. Chop up and rearrange a DnB breakbeat on the fly. Add repeating house build-ups with just one click. Drop in instant tape-stops and DJ scratches. Or go wild and come up with something totally new – TimeShaper is a seriously insane must-try creative time-twister tool for producers of any genre!
Multiband operation massively multiplies the possibilities. Want to reverse the bass while you stutter the midrange and tape-stop the treble? Now you can!
Check the in-depth introduction to TimeShaper by Dan Worrall below.
TimeShaper runs in Cableguys’ exclusive new ShaperBox creative effects rack, allowing you to create elaborate, multi-layered effects by using it alongside other Cableguys Shapers.
The new FilterShaper Core plugin takes the great-sounding filter technology from FilterShaper 3 and combines it with a streamlined modulation system.
Using the same acclaimed Sallen-Key filters as FilterShaper 3, you can expect all the richness, warmth and intricacy of a high-quality analogue filter.
Apply subtle nuances or giant wobbles. From filter sweeps to surgically-precise frequency control.
Also new is WidthShaper, a multi-band stereo enhancer, mid-side modulator and bass tightener.
It allows you to define your stereo image in ultimate detail with three bands of mid/side stereo adjustment, each with its own modulation curve.
Use WidthShaper for sound design, mixing or mastering – it’s just at home on single tracks as on the master bus.
Cableguys has also released VolumeShaper 5 and PanShaper 2, updating both plugins to run inside the ShaperBox, and offering several improvements.
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.
All plugins are available for 32/64-bit Windows and Mac (VST/AU) and a free trial version of ShaperBox is available as well (includes FilterShaper Core, TimeShaper, VolumeShaper 5, PanShaper 2, WidthShaper).
