    Introduction

    In this first video, we outline the topics covered in the series and offer an overview of the ethos of the plug-in, as well as each individual module, demonstrating some of the module presets in the process.

    Library Presets

    Next up, we cover the library presets area. Loading, Saving and Searching for presets are covered, and also how to sync presets with the Cableguys Online Cloud.

  • image description 5:06

    The Interface

    In this video, we go over the interface outlining the different areas and their basic functions. We show the areas which remain the same for each Shaper, and the parts that are altered as we move between Shapers.

    Wave Presets

    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.

  • image description 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.

  • image description 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.

  • image description 14:08

    VolumeShaper

    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.

  • image description 13:29

    TimeShaper

    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.

  • image description 11:57

    CrushShaper

    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.

  • image description 9:35

    FilterShaper

    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.

  • image description 8:27

    PanShaper

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

  • image description 5:24

    WidthShaper

    Next up we cover the parameters of WidthShaper by modulating the side signal of a rising pad sound. We then continue on to create a wide stereo mono compatible muti-band bass patch which is then modulated.

  • image description 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.

  • image description 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.

  • image description 6:46

    MIDI in ShaperBox 2

    Last but not least, we cover using MIDI in Shaperbox 2, demonstrating how to switch between different LFO Shapes and also re-triggering LFO cycles with MIDI!

Easy to follow, very informative!

The pace of the tutorial is rather slow, so it's easy to follow even if this is the first time someone opening up Shaperbox. The video series explains every single parameter on every single module, there are loads of audio examples, so by the end all my questions about the software were answered. Thanks, exactly what I was looking for.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I learnt the trumpet and piano around age 12 and then guitar a couple of years later. I played in a few indie bands for a few years until I discovered the turntables and Dj'ing. I then swapped the guitar for the synthesizer and the stage for the Dj booth and the rest is history!

2. What training have you had?

I completed a diploma in sound engineering and music technology from islington Music Workshop in London. I am also level 1 certified in Logic. The most important training I have received though is sitting for hours on end at my studio making music!

3. When did you get into recording?

Recording demos for the indie bands I mentioned earlier. Then recording vocals for my tracks as DEF inc. and laterally Rebel Sonix. I also worked in London studio Rollover in around 2005.

4. People you have worked with/for?

I've remixed Coldplay, Kylie, Roots Manuva and John B. Labels I have released on include Parlaphone, EMI, Fingerlickin, Eight Fx, Quantum, Botchit and Scarper amongst others. I have composed music for Sony Playstation games, Sky tv, J&B Whiskey, Lexus cars and the BBC to name a few. I have produced online tutorial videos and have had a 1 hour production video in Music Techs magazines cover DVD. I have also Dj'ed at events such as Glastonbury festival and Miami WMC and touring extensively all over the world.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

Well hopefully I have a clear and concise training method mixed with a serious passion for making music. I have previously worked for Apple teaching Logic and also regularly lecture on Logic and electronic music production. I also teach the Ministry of Sound DJ academy in London which involves teaching an introduction to Djing as well as in depth seminars on using NI's Traktor and also Serato Scratch Live. As a producer making cutting edge electronic music, I have to remain at the forefront of new sounds and production techniques. I mix my time between different areas of the music industry - production, remixing, DJing and also teaching which allows me to develop all those skills simultaneously - so I can improve my teaching ability whilst also continuing to develop as a producer (something which you never stop doing!)
