Chain Shaper - The Most Intuitive Multiband Audio Triggered Sidechain Utility.

Noir Labs

For Ableton 10 and 11 Suite only.

Chain Shaper is the cleanest and most intuitive audio triggered ducking ever made. Up to 6 input channels can be routed from drums, loops, synths or vocals and Chain Shaper will automatically duck them out without the need for any threshold control. It’s more transparent and accurate than sidechain compression and requires no dummy clips like other audio ducking tools. Chain Shaper offers an extensive feature set with an unparalleled ease of use.
