ShaperBox is a box of many must-have, well organised tools for sound design … The 'Time' function is my favourite.

It's an instant favorite!!! WOW!! So much fun and creativity right out of the Box!!

I have been using Cableguys plugins a ton. I used both VolumeShaper and TimeShaper on my new album.

Having the ability to bend, slow and manipulate a sound using a single plugin has been a HUGE asset.

What is TimeShaper?

Just like a DJ working vinyl, TimeShaper 3 lets you freely manipulate the flow of time, slowing down or accelerating your music. Simply draw the exact LFO shapes you need – our unique curve-editing tools make it fast and easy. Warp pitch and time to create everything from essential everyday FX to extreme multiband transformations.

Running inside Cableguys' ShaperBox 3 effects plugin, use TimeShaper on its own or with other Shapers — they all work in exactly the same way, stacking up to create elaborate, multilayered effects that'll make your productions stand out.

A no-brainer for electronic producers and remixers, TimeShaper is simply a joy to use and is packed with creative potential.

Sound On Sound, March 2018

For me, the real winner in TimeShaper was the multiband option – setting different patterns for each frequency band really opens up the creative potential.

4/5 - Attack Magazine, October 2017

TimeShaper does amazing things to vocals, guitars, synths and other melodic material.

Making sick grooves just became very easy. TimeShaper brings a lot of inspiration to the table.

TimeShaper takes the crown when it comes to how quick and easy it is to get good results.

Ultimately, TimeShaper keeps me feeling creative longer while providing more control over the samples I'm manipulating.

I don’t really know any other plugin capable of doing all TimeShaper can do.

Time-Twisting Tool


With TimeShaper, you'll manipulate the position of a virtual playhead within your audio to create chops, stutters, slow-downs, speed-ups, reverses, glitches, scratches, tape-stops… and more!

Our easiest ever waveform-editing tools make it simple to draw the exact time-bending patterns you want to hear.

Go from rhythmic repeats to wild pitch-warping transformations in just a few clicks.

Sync your patterns to beats and bars so they're always locked to your track. From half-bar reverses to intricate 8-bar stutter grooves and beyond, all with sample accuracy.

Trigger your 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.

TimeShaper gives you a separate LFO for lows, mids and highs. Reverse the bass. Half-time the mids. Glitch the tops. Go nuts!

A unique time offset display shows precisely how TimeShaper's virtual playhead is moving inside your audio, helping you to design the perfect scratch, slow-down or stutter.

Best-in-class resampling interpolation means you can modulate audio speed to extremes with minimal aliasing and artifacts. And our Smooth Step Mode minimises the clicks and crackles that can affect other time-jumping plugins.

TimeShaper 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.
