Cableguys release CrushShaper – new for ShaperBox 2

Designed to inspire you in ways no ordinary bitcrusher can, CrushShaper is powered by Cableguys’ easy drawable LFOs and flexible envelope followers. Now you can create unique digital distortion patterns, per-note multiband crushing, and crunchy downsampled grooves in just a few clicks. Put simply, it’s the ultimate creative bitcrusher.

CrushShaper puts 3 distinct bitcrushing styles at your full control: ‘Crunch’ for fuzz, grind and grit. ‘Bits’ to reduce audio resolution, going 8-bit and beyond. ‘Resample’ for digital overtones and lo-fi retro sound. Animate each with its own custom LFO and envelope follower, then filter and layer with the dry signal using the handy ‘FX Mix’ section.

For creative production and sound design, use CrushShaper to craft crunchy lo-fi melodies and retro videogame FX.

Create ‘talking’ robot synths, gnarly speaker-rattling bass growls and old-school downsampled drums. Transform even the plainest loops into inspirational track-starting rhythms to fuel your next track!

For mixing, deploy CrushShaper as a laser-targeted multiband tool: crush individual hits and frequency ranges in a loop, add treble sizzle and shine to vocals and hi-hats, rough up the lows in a bass, dynamically distort drum transients, and so much more.

CrushShaper runs in Cableguys’ new ShaperBox 2 multieffects plugin and can be bought on its own or as part of the ShaperBox 2 Bundle that contains six powerful Cableguys Shapers. For those who already own ShaperBox 2 Bundle, CrushShaper is a free download.

Price: CrushShaper, €39 / $44 | Free for existing ShaperBox 2 Bundle owners. ShaperBox 2 Bundle, €89 / $99 (contains CrushShaper + 5 more Shapers, saves 55% compared to individual prices).
