Cableguys has announced the release of a new ShaperBox 2 series audio plugin. DriveShaper is a distortion toolbox that allows you to draw creative distortion patterns, design laser-targeted saturation, dial in multiband waveshaping, and more.

Cableguys DriveShaper

From laser-focused harmonic warmth and sizzle to massively modulated mayhem that reacts and breathes in synergy with your music, DriveShaper does it all – and more. Animate any of 10 exciting shaping algorithms using easy, drawable LFOs and simple 1-slider Envelope Followers.

Create magical distorted rhythms, pulsing analogue warmth and hard-edged patterns. And for mixing, target specific hits with the LFO and Envelope Follower, and home in on precise frequency ranges with multiband control. Quickly dial in reactive heat and subtle harmonic motion.

Running inside Cableguys’ ShaperBox 2 effects plugin, use DriveShaper on its own or with other Shapers — they all work in exactly the same way, stacking up to create elaborate, multilayered effects that’ll make your productions stand out.
