Draw Your Own Rhythms


Buying Choices
Cableguys have announced that their FilterShaper VST effect is now in Public Beta. They say that FilterShaper enables you to bring life to your sounds and loops. You can draw any curve, assign it to its 4 LFOs and use them to modulate filter cutoff and resonance. Or just modulate the volume.
Here’s the details in the company’s own words…
Its drawing possibilities are ultra-flexible, yet easy to use. You can draw any curves you like, shaping hard-synced or analogue-sounding rhythms. Create interesting rhythmic strings, shape a bass sound, destroy vocal recordings, create vivid shaker rhythms out of white noise, etc. You can go from subtle changes to extreme modulations, from little sound corrections to nicely filtered rhythmic loops. Its various filters can be set to drastic values from zero resonance up to self-oscillation.
You can change all parameters via automation (if your host sequencer can handle it). Everything. Even the shape of the modulating wave can be automated. Choose which wave is in use at any position in your song, change the loop length, record and play back any wave point movements and assign any hardware controller to any parameter in FilterShaper. Even with heavy modulations, with tempo changes in the host or jumping at different positions of a song, the modulation always stays in sync.

Pricing and Availability:
It is free to use one instance of FilterShaper at a time. To use more instances, a license costs EUR 29/USD $44. More information:
