    Now we cover the Wave Presets, demonstrating the categories for each Shaper and how you can use them to quickly dial in a suitable sound. We also cover adding LFO shapes into the User Slots which allows you to automate moving between different Shapes.

  • LFO Settings 6:17

    LFO Settings

    The LFO settings are now covered in-detail, which allows you to set different LFO tempos and lengths on a per Shaper basis, and also when unlinked, on a band by band level.

  • The LFO Wave Editor 8:53

    The LFO Wave Editor

    In this video, learn how to create custom LFO Shapes using the Tool Strip options. These allow you to create and edit Breakpoints or Nodes using the Pen Tools add Straight Lines, Arcs and S-Shapes. This allows for a great level of intricacy to the resulting LFO Shapes you can create.

  • VolumeShaper 14:08


    Now we turn our attention to the parameters of VolumeShaper and its flexible Compressor. Watch how to create a Trance Gate Style Effect, a super transparent Kick/Bass Side Chain and then dive into to fine tuning loops using the Compressor set to listen to different frequencies.

  • TimeShaper 13:29


    In this video, learn the way that TimeShaper allows you to edit and mangle loops by repositioning audio in a rhythmic way. We also demonstrate this as a Multi-Band Effect and also show some of the Time-Stretching and Scratching functionalities.

  • CrushShaper 11:57


    CrushShaper is now covered in-depth in this video including the 4 main parameters; Crunch, Bits, Resample and FX Mix. The way in which the LFO Editor can be used to control these parameters independently is also demonstrated.

  • FilterShaper 9:35


    Now discover the multimode filter structure of FilterShaper and how to build a sound with different LFO Shapes for 3 bands using 3 different Filter Modes. We then continue with isolating a vocal part from a loop using a custom LFO Shape.

  • PanShaper 8:27


    PanShaper is now explained and explored with Modulated Auto-Pan Effects, including the amazing Haas Effect based psychoacoustic widening.

  • WidthShaper 5:24

  • The Envelope Follower Pt. 1 10:57

    The Envelope Follower Pt. 1

    In this video, we cover the main parameters of the Envelope Follower using FilterShaper as an example. We also demonstrate how it interacts with the LFO Shape and ways in which we can fine-tune the Envelope settings for creative effects.

  • The Envelope Follower Pt. 2 14:35

    The Envelope Follower Pt. 2

    Now we look at uses of the Envelope Follower with PanShaper and WidthShaper, and then continue on to cover the different Side Chain signals that the Envelope Follower can listen to from a specific frequency band, such as a Side Chain input trigger from another track.

  • MIDI in ShaperBox 2 6:46
