Gate effect

VolumeShaper is a simple but unique gate effect. This VST plugin allows detailed modulation of a signal's volume.

You can draw any volume curve 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 high-passed white noise, use it to simulate the typical pumping sidechain compression, etc.

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 VolumeShaper. Even with heavy modulations, with tempo changes in the host or jumping at different positions of a song, the modulation always stays in sync.

VolumeShaper VolumeShaper v 4.2.1 Apr 30, 2016 MacOS X Intel
The bands in VolumeShaper and PanShaper can now have their independent settings for their LFO and Mix controls.

A solid sidechain curve on the beat in the low end, a fast 16th gate in the high frequencies in VolumeShaper, or some fluid effects in PanShaper: The independent LFO settings allow more flexible editing, while the independent Mix controls improve fine-tuning the effect of the curves.

Plus, PanShaper now also works on mono channels and turns them into stereo (if your DAW support this; Logic does for example, after a rescan in Logic's Plugin Manager).
CableGuys VolumeShaper VolumeShaper v 4.1.2 Dec 11, 2015 MacOS X Intel
We've added a new drawing tool which allows to quickly add steps in the waveform.
Waveform points are more clearly visible and buttons are bigger and more responsive.
MidiShaper is now all dark. And blue! Many users have asked us for this change. If you belong to the ones who preferred the old white layout, please excuse our change to a dark skin.
In MidiShaper, it's now possible to resize the waveform area.
For PanCake, we've added a running light which shows the position within the audio nicely.

All our plugins now feature multi-selection of waveform points via ALT-click, to move, scale, mirror or delete multiple points at once — for even more comfortable and faster waveform editing.

And we've updated all of them to the latest Cableguys codebase, bringing small bug fixes, a reduced CPU usage and smoother UI control.

The new version adds a mix (dry/wet) control, so you can easily adjust your sidechain compression effect, your gated rhythm or tempo-synced stutter.

VolumeShaper v 2.2.4 Oct 31, 2011 MacOS X Intel
These updates fix graphic issues with older host sequencers on Mac OS X and reduce both memory and CPU consumption on Mac OS X and Windows.
VolumeShaper v 2.2.3 Oct 15, 2011 MacOS X Intel
Curve, FilterShaper, VolumeShaper and PanCake are now fully RTAS compatible (for Pro Tools 8 and higher).

These updates fix graphic issues with the waveform area, which could happen with some graphic cards and especially with OS X Lion.

In some cases, MidiShaper might have stopped sending MIDI signal in Ableton Live. We fixed that as well.
VolumeShaper v 2.2.2 Jul 30, 2011 MacOS X UB
Switching play modes could lead to hanging notes in Curve 1.4. This is fixed now. Also, we fixed a drawing bug in the waveform area for all plugins.
VolumeShaper v 2.2.1 Jun 21, 2011 MacOS X UB
  • We improved CPU usage for all plugins a bit and fixed a crash bug in Curve that could happen when renaming a preset.


  • 64-bit versions of our full product line are now also available for the Mac.
  • VolumeShaper v 2.2 Jun 9, 2011 MacOS X UB
    Now all our plugins have 40 wavepoints for drawing waveforms. More weirdness, more control for wobbles, for arpeggios in Curve, etc.
    VolumeShaper v 2.1 Feb 7, 2011 MacOS X UB
    All effects are now fully AU compatible.

    Undo/redo for waveform drawing has been one of the Curve's most requested features, and we now also added this feature to our full product line. Also, we tweaked lots of things under the hood.
    VolumeShaper v 2.0.1 Mar 22, 2010 MacOS X UB
    Fixes: On Sonar (PC) the waveform area was sometimes not shown correctly, and on Nuendo (Mac) our plugins could not be closed (.. but really, you should anyway never ever close our plugins).

    Improvements: For all plugins, we added a new button to change the displayed grid of the waveform, and we labeled FilterShaper's LFOs numerically (hurray!).

    Current issues: Our plugins do not work in all 64 bit hosts. In Nuendo (Mac) the mouse pointer is sometimes offset within the waveform area. We are currently looking into both issues.
    VolumeShaper v 2.0 Dec 23, 2009 MacOS X UB
    Added a free-running option to VolumeShaper's LFO and refined the user interface.
