This is so genius. It's too amazing. It's insane !!!!!

Really love the new NoiseShaper in ShaperBox!

We really love it. It’s so easy to use and get creative with! We’ve been using it on big synth stacks and our drum groups 🙌🏼

I was able to add depth and space to drums that I would never have been able to with reverb or distortion. I absolutely love it!

César Sogbe, Grammy-winning mix engineer (Prince, Pet Shop Boys, David Byrne)

I've been waiting for something like this forever!! Already integrated it into my daily workflow.

Wow, I loooove this! NoiseShaper over a low Reese bass and FilterShaper after it has just sparked the creativity to write a whole new track in a day!

This is going to be my new go-to for injecting noise, vibe and lo-fi vibes into tracks! The feature to follow the envelope of your sound is magic!

John Nathaniel, Producer/Mixer/Songwriter (OneRepublic, Switchfoot, Kygo)

Ohhh this is interesting to get an organic feel into the groove! … I love the noise option, used this already in many tracks. Will use it on my next record for sure. <3

Just testing the new NoiseShaper and it's amazing as usual!! So perfect for the new direction we're trying in our tracks, with more organic sounds.

This is ridiculously useful.

Rob Swire (Pendulum/Knife Party)

What is NoiseShaper?

Imagine trap melodies crackling like vintage vinyl. EDM synths that fill the speakers with high-end electricity. Drums sizzling with classic console hiss. Pianos submerged in bubbling water. Cassette house grooves, retro gear hum, broken digital textures, organic field recordings… and so much more.

Explore an expansive world of noise with mix-ready noise sources by BT, Cyclick and InsideInfo. Layer them onto any sound in just one click – with built-in dynamic control, NoiseShaper reacts to your music, for noise that breathes with every beat.

Running inside Cableguys' ShaperBox 3 plugin, use NoiseShaper on its own or combine with other Shapers for elaborate, multilayered effects. Try it now — download the ShaperBox 3 demo to use NoiseShaper in your next track!

It’s a fantastic sound design and mix tool for adding all-important texture, character and movement to any audio.

MusicTech Magazine, October 2021

It's hard to think of another plugin that gives this sort of control over noise and textures. For FX, texture and percussive patterns this is a must-try — it may be ShaperBox's secret weapon.

Computer Music magazine, January 2022

You can use NoiseShaper to blend noise into just the attack of each drum hit, to change tonality or enhance the transient. It’s a powerful option for adding impact.

Shape the Noise level to turn static noise into percolating rhythms, pumping patterns and spot FX that perfectly support your sounds.

Transpose noise textures up to +/-24 semitones with the new Pitch parameter – now modulatable, for everything from subtle life and modulated drum tones to wild FX, custom risers, and more. Hear 3 examples in the video.

Forget boring static noise with no dynamics – in NoiseShaper, the noise breathes with every beat. Follow mode adds rhythmically synced sizzle. Duck mode fills the gaps with lo-fi textures.

With Cableguys' easiest ever waveform drawing tools, it's easy to target specific mix elements – for instance, add noise to just the snare in a loop. You can even design your own rhythmic noise patterns.

Sync your noise patterns to beats and bars so they're always locked to your track. Go from 1/4-note pumping noise to 8-bar risers and beyond, all with sample accuracy.

Trigger your noise patterns in any rhythm at all using MIDI. Or use powerful new audio triggering that tightly tracks the rhythm of drums, loops, instruments – even full mixes.

NoiseShaper runs in Cableguys' acclaimed ShaperBox 3 effects plugin. Use it on its own, or combine it with up to 9 more Shapers for elaborate, multilayered effects that'll make your productions stand out.
