Cableguys ShaperBox 3.1 Updates adds a new Oscilloscope Tool


Cableguys’ ShaperBox 3 is its much-loved audio movement and mixing plugin – and the v.3.1 update just made it even better.

New for version 3.1 highlight is Oscilloscope Tool. Additionally, this includes a high-res waveform display that locks to beats and bars, audio or MIDI, and is designed to help producers to visualise the dynamics of their music and identify mix problems. You can also overlay the waveform of any other track using sidechain routing.

Comprising nine multiband effects – Volume, Time, Drive, Filter, Crush, Noise, Pan, Width and the new Liquid processor – ShaperBox 3 is controlled on a visual interface that enables you to draw waveshapes, and offers easier LFO editing than ever before.

New for version 3 is Audio Triggering – switch this on and the LFO will restart with every transient. There’s also a new external sidechain input in the VolumeShaper that comes with its own view.

The new effect, LiquidShaper, takes ShaperBox into flanging and phasing territory, while new editing features include a more powerful pointer tool that makes all key functions operable with a left click.

Preset browsing has been streamlined and speeded-up, too, while ShaperBox’s multiband compressor can now be inserted anywhere in the processing chain. The envelope followers, meanwhile, offer an improved adaptive release mode that’s said to produce an even sweeter analogue-style response, and various specific improvements have been made to a number of the individual effects.

The nine plugins contained in Shaperbox 3.1 would regularly retail for a combined total of $301/€301, but you can currently get them for just $89/€89.

ShaperBox 3 is available now for PC and Mac in VST/AU/AAX formats. Find out more on the CableGuys website. And, this being Black Friday, you can get Cableguys ShaperBox 3.1 for just $89/€89
