Alternatively, the plug-in can also “redefine” any flavor of the sound source.
K-Devices has released Shaper 2 as part of its Phoenix Series of plug-ins (VST/AAX/AU – Mac/Win). Shaper 2 combines a classic wave-shaper with a new multi-fx processor. It was specifically designed to allow the user to redefine – or totally destroy – any flavor of the sound source.
But it’s creative, not destructive sound destruction!
Shaper is composed of several modules that can be re-arranged in any order:
- Glitch Gate, now with a Smooth parameter
- Waveshaper with five functions: Muffin, Multistress, Cracker, S&M, and Bits&Samps
- Transform module with Clip, Wrap, Fold, and sFold functions
- Resonator/Short Delay, that can act as a comb filter as well
A new addition to version 2: a Lopass/Hipass filter for fine-tuning the processed sound.
K-Devices describes the plug-in: “Shaper 2 allows the user to add a personally destructive touch to sound work. Emphasize Basslines by tweaking the Waveshaper sections: Blend and Color, or increasing the clip’s value (this also works great on drums and acoustic percussive sounds). Blow digital coldness into your synths with the S&M and Bits&Samps functions, or increasing the Wrap and/or Fold values. Add unpredictable dynamic glitches thanks to the exclusive Glitch Gate section.”
Additional features: Modular Structure – Drag and reorder modules as you prefer. Create and save different chains for different needs.
Graphics – Beyond a classic oscilloscope, two displays show the exact function you are using to process incoming sounds.
I / O – You choose how to feed Shaper 2 and how to mix it using the Gain and Mix parameters.
