Shaperbox 3 is a multi-effects processor designed for use in the studio or on stage. It is a powerful tool for shaping and sculpting sound, allowing users to quickly and easily create unique and interesting sounds.

With its intuitive interface and powerful features, Shaperbox 3 makes it easy to create and manipulate sounds in any musical style. It features a wide range of effects, including reverbs, delays, chorus, flangers, phasers, and more. It also includes a built-in step sequencer for creating rhythmic patterns.

Main Features

  • The LiquidShaper is a flexible effects rack with 9 Shapers, a compressor, editable LFOs, an Env follower, and 3 band split for each Shaper. 
  • It has new features such as a flanger and phaser, a separate compressor module, Audio Triggering mode, and an improved preset system. 
  • You can purchase the Shapers separately or as a bundle.

ShaperBox 3 introduces a new LiquidShaper module, designed to create phasing and flanging effects. These effects are perfect for ShaperBox, as they have been used by guitarists, synthesists and studio engineers for years to add dynamics and width to their sound.

The plugin introduces a new external sidechain view, allowing the central shaper view to show both the incoming audio and a sidechain input at the same time – making it easy to adjust an effect based on the relationship between two elements. In addition to the new effect, ShaperBox 3 also introduces several other features. Most notably, it has improved sidechain triggering with a Global Audio Trigger panel located at the top of the interface.

Pros and Cons of the Shaperbox 3

Pros: The ShaperBox workflow is perfectly suited to Phase and Flange, as it includes an improved browser for easier inspiration finding, and enhanced sidechaining capabilities. 

Cons: However, when compared to v2, it may not be considered revolutionary.

ShaperBox allows users to switch between a main audio input and a sidechain input, monitor the incoming audio, add high/low-pass filters, and customize the detection algorithm for different types of material. Additionally, it can output MIDI triggers based on the incoming audio so that it can be used to trigger other plugins and devices
