1. HalfTime

 
HalfTime
 

Enter a world of spaced-out, slowed-down sound with HalfTime, the only plugin 100% dedicated to half-speed effects, in use by Armin van Buuren, David Guetta, members of 808 Mafia, The Chemical Brothers and more.

HalfTime transforms any audio into a dark, downtempo version of itself, giving your tracks huge mood and atmosphere. Lead synths mutate into heavyweight EDM bass monsters. Plinky piano lines become haunting trap melodies. Percussion thickens, expanding to reveal new rhythmic possibilities.

Just add the plugin for an instant half-speed effect with zero setup. Or go in deep with powerful creative controls. HalfTime works on loops, virtual instruments or even live audio input, inspiring you in seconds.

The hands-on Power button makes it easy to fit HalfTime into your tracks — create a rapid switch or sink in slowly with smooth fades up to 16 bars.

Three speed Modes give you classic half-speed, tight harmonies and shuffling swing rhythms, and drugged-out quad-time playback. Adjustable Loop length allows multi-bar slow-downs, funky syncopations and totally new grooves.

Slow only the lows, mids or highs with the Band split — generate deep bass movement, fatten midrange percussion, or flip your top-end on its head.

Key Features

  • Instant setup : Add the plugin – get an instant half-speed effect with no setup.
  • Power button : Punch the large central button to activate the effect – automate in your DAW.
  • Fade In/Out : Introduce the effect instantly, or fade in across up to 16 bars.
  • 3 speed Modes : 2x for the classic “half-speed” effect. 1.5x for perfect fifth harmonies and triplet rhythms. 4x speed for drugged-out quad-time playback.
  • Band Split : Half-speed just the bass, treble or midrange for trippy effects.
  • Band Solo : Hear just the slowed frequency range – use it to hone the effect, as a filter, or to blend using the Mix control.
  • Dry/Wet Mix : Blend the original and slowed audio.
  • Loop Length : Set the Loop from 1/16 up to 8 bars – keep the original timing, stretch it to half speed, or create catchy new rhythms.
  • Smooth : Preserve transient punch with Percussive mode, and avoid clicks and pops on sustained material with Sustain mode. Or push it to extremes with creative FX and Swell options.

6. Curve 2

 
Curve 2
 

Curve is a software synthesizer with an irresistible waveform editor, huge sound library and slick interface. Version 2.5 adds new Sallen-Key filter types, beat-synced envelopes, an overhauled UI and many tweaked sounds.

Feed Curve’s oscillators, LFOs and envelopes with custom waveforms. For anything rhythmic from wobbles to FX loops and evolving pads. For broad oscillator timbres from deep basses to shrill, aggressive snarls.

A huge library will get you started, with quality presets by renowned sound designers such as Michael Kastrup, Pluginguru, Myagi, Xenos Soundworks, Soundsdivine, and hidden pearls from the Curve community.

Curve provides completely new possibilities for experimentation and detailed tweaking, with a simple to use, immediate, slick interface.

Sound Features
Curve features aliasing-free oscillators with custom waveforms, noise generation and broad FM options. Waveform crossfades provide for changing timbres; a comprehensive unison mode delivers fat lead sounds, wide pads and massive sound. Drawable LFOs deliver everything from melodic and rhythmic patterns to dubstep wobbles and punishing bit-crushing effects. Flexible filter routing, a feature-rich mono mode plus legato and glide, are all designed for great depth of control.

Preset Library
Curve’s preset library is a shared online database, providing a constant source of inspirational sound. Public preset sharing allows an ever-increasing number of great presets, public preset voting will help you manage the vast number of sounds, all from within the plugin. Curve ships with an excerpt of this ever-growing sound library. Macro knobs let you explore vast sound variations quickly, for quick access to those parameters that define the core of a sound.

Elegant Interface
Curve shows you everything important at a glance, featuring high contrasts and a fresh color scheme. Inbuilt MIDI assignment allows you to set up external MIDI controllers quickly.


7. FilterShaper 3

 
FilterShaper 3
 

FilterShaper 3 takes a giant leap into unconventional sound design with two powerful filters, freely editable modulation curves, and an immensely flexible modulation framework.

The new Sallen-Key type filters deliver a rich, warm, intricate sound. Create complex, shifting, interweaving effects. Apply subtle nuances or giant wobbles. From filtersweeps and stereo tremolo to surgically-precise filter control.

Experiment and Explore
Start with two filters, running in serial or in parallel, plus a set of simple controls. Then set things in motion: All main controls have their own modulation section with two flexible LFOs and one envelope follower each. For advanced effects editing, each LFO in turn has its own speed and intensity control — each with its own LFO and envelope follower. And all LFOs can be MIDI triggered. Visual feedback on each control and oscilloscope views on each LFO keep you focused. And a community-powered, ever-growing library of presets provides starting points and inspiration for your own sounds.

Total Precision Control
FilterShaper 3 excels at surgically precise control. For pinpoint tweaking of the modulation curves and a close-up oscilloscope view, open up the detail panel. Filter out a specific beat in a loop. Tame a booming kick. Or shape a tired sample into something lively and vibrant. You have two filters, 60 LFOs, and 50 envelope followers at your fingertips — a detailed, interconnected toolbox for shaping your sound.

Advanced Dualband Sidechain Effects
As well as pinpoint editing, pulsing rhythmic effects, and left-field, alien craziness, FilterShaper 3 can deliver flexible, precisely timed sidechain compression effects. For dualband sidechain, set up filter one to manage the lows and assign filter two to the highs. Duck out the bass when the kick hits, take out the highs to emphasize a snare — simply draw the curve for each as required.


8. VolumeShaper 6

 
VolumeShaper 6
 

MULTIBAND SIDECHAIN – COMPRESS – GATE – ENVELOPE – STUTTER

Shape audio signals in pinpoint detail with VolumeShaper 6’s unique level manipulation toolset. It’s fast and easy to use but packed with power, with a drawable volume LFO and visual compressor on every band. Work at the speed of inspiration with intuitive editing, pro presets, 1-click sidechain and much more.

Running inside Cableguys’ ShaperBox 2 effects plugin, use VolumeShaper 6 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.

DO ALL THIS WITH VOLUME SHAPER 6

  • Sidechain kick and Bass – Make space for your kick drum — gain punch, low-end clarity, and rhythmic “bounce”
  • Get loud, tight mixes – Sidechain just the bass frequencies for huge mixdowns that “go loud” effortlessly
  • Compress for Flavor – Squeeze energy and attitude into flat drums, loops, vocals and more with punchy bus-style compression
  • Control dynamic details – Combine compression with gain curve editing for incredibly precise dynamic adjustments
  • Remove hi-hats in a loop – Adjust, remove or isolate elements in a mixed loop using frequency-targeted volume LFOs
  • Get perfect punch – Redraw transients at the stroke of a Pen. Tighten decay tails. Make basses, drums, and synths hit hard
  • Create pumping fx – Turn plain white noise and ambience loops into pumping rhythmic FX to energise your tracks

Ducking AKA sidechain compression effect Essential for a well-defined kick and bass, the well-known ducking effect of sidechain compression creates extra rhythmic drive and provides space and definition. VolumeShaper gives you this same effect with absolute control — just draw the curve you want. Simpler, faster, and more precise than using a compressor. You can also trigger the LFO via MIDI notes — choose one of the ‘MIDI Triggered’ LFO types, then route MIDI notes to the plugin via your DAW.

Multiband shaping Use different curves for bass, mids and highs for added precision. The multiband split lets you duck out the bass when the kick hits, or duck the mids to provide space for the snare. Or gate the kick in a drum loop by editing the low band and leaving the mids/highs untouched. VolumeShaper makes it easy to apply this essential technique precisely, for accurate and dynamic mixes.

Define your audio loops VolumeShaper’s oscilloscope displays the incoming audio, helping you to precisely define audio levels. In a drum loop, regulate levels for snare, hi-hat, or anything else with just a few clicks, or edit unwanted notes out of a loop. From smooth bezier curves to hard cuts, you decide. Sync the effect to your DAW from 1/128 note up to 32 bars, sync to the frequency of the played note, or let it run freely at ranges from 0.02 Hz up to 5.24 kHz.

Shape drums Go in deep and use VolumeShaper as a precise volume curve for your synth or drum sounds. Set it to trigger whenever a specific MIDI note is played, and simply draw the shape you need. You can even shape different frequency ranges independently — shorten only the high frequencies of a kick, for example. It’s effectively a gate, but you have total control over the length and shape of the volume tail.

Audio destruction For punishing bit-crusher effects, run VolumeShaper’s LFO fast — right up to the limits of the audible range (Tip: set the LFO to ‘Hertz (Retrig.)’). For a less drastic effect, limit the modulation to specific frequencies — try a medium-width mid band — by moving the band sliders. And for ring modulation effects, set the LFO to the frequency of the MIDI notes that you play.

Stutter and tremolo Simple but effective — VolumeShaper breathes new life into this classic effect. Detailed control options let you create stutter and tremolo with a twist — try applying envelopes to specific frequency ranges, or using a custom curve tailored to fit a specific loop or MIDI note.
