Cableguys has announced the release of the latest ShaperBox effect that puts vibe, energy and character right at the heart of your productions.

The NoiseShaper plugin gives producers the secret sauce for lo-fi beats and exciting mixes: noise.

Explore an expansive library of production-ready noise sources by top-tier sound designers BT, Cyclick and InsideInfo, then layer them onto any sound in just one click. With built-in dynamic control, NoiseShaper reacts to your music, for noise that breathes with every beat.

Imagine trap melodies crackling like vintage vinyl. EDM synths that fill the speakers with high-end electricity. Drums sizzling with classic console hiss. Pianos submerged in bubbling water. Cassette tape house grooves. Retro equipment hum, broken digital textures, organic field recordings… NoiseShaper does all this and so much more.

It’s easy to focus the noise precisely where you need it using Cableguys’ flexible modulation. Use Follow mode for rhythmically synced sizzle, or Duck mode to fill the gaps with lo-fi ambience and create pumping off-beat grooves. Target specific mix elements like the snare in a loop, and even design your own rhythmic noise patterns using ShaperBox’s signature drawable LFOs.

Running inside Cableguys’ ShaperBox 2 plugin (VST, AU, and AAX), NoiseShaper is available at Cableguys and from distributor Plugin Boutique at an introductory price of 29 EUR / $34 USD (regular 50 EUR / $60 USD).

The plugin is also included in the ShaperBox 2 Bundle (89 EUR / $99 USD) comprising 8 shaper effects. ShaperBox itself has also been updated, with version 2.4 now natively compatible with M1 Macs.
