WidthShaper is incredible! Being able to automate stereo width automatically and in time can create some serious mojo and contrast in synths or guitars!

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

I love this on uprisers! The expansion of the width will make sure that your build-up will sound really really huge and gets a lot of energy going.

What is WidthShaper?

Define your stereo image in ultimate detail with WidthShaper 3. Take control with three bands of mid/side stereo adjustment, each driven by its own drawable LFO and envelope follower. Use it on single tracks and buses, for sound design, mixing and mastering.

Running inside Cableguys' ShaperBox 3 effects plugin, use WidthShaper 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.

WidthShaper offers unprecedented control over the width of your tracks. You could draw in a specific shape to target the midrange of a snare on a certain beat, have a synth slowly swell over time, or pump the stereo width in time with the beat, while leaving the low-end untouched.

WidthShaper can be used across genres and to liven up all sorts of signals. I cannot think of another plugin that gives such control over stereo width. WidthShaper is a unique stereo width control tool.

Multiband Stereo

Expander & Modulator


WidthShaper gives you natural "sides-only" stereo widening that's always mono-compatible, even at extreme settings.

Our easiest ever waveform-editing tools make it simple to draw the exact movements you want to hear. Get any mid/side modulation you can imagine in just a few clicks.

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

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

Use Envelope Followers to dynamically widen beats, loops, melodies – anything. Increase the stereo width as volume increases. Now with analogue-like Adaptive Release.

Get width where you need it most with a separate widening waveform and Envelope Follower for the lows, mids and highs. Expand top-end, widen mids, and get super-solid mono bass.

A built-in vectorscope gives you an instant overview of your stereo image. Use it to dial in just the right balance of stereo width and mono compatibility.

WidthShaper 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.
