Isotonic releases Shapes

Shapes is a collection of Shaper Presets, Audio Effect Racks, and Instrument Racks for Ableton Live, comprised of Shaper Presets and complementary Audio Effect and Instrument Racks.

Ever wanted to modulate a parameter in the shape of a city line, rising tides, or even a dolphin? Now's your chance! Created by pATCHES & PerforModule, Shapes is a true modulation paradise. Very easy to install, this Ableton Live pack gives you access to a collection of complex Shaper presets, audio effect racks, and instrument racks. Shapes is an invitation to sonic exploration and experimentation, but if you want more guidance, the detailed user guide ensures you get the most out of the pack. Shapes is an excellent way to add movement, expression, and life into your productions!




You can use these directly to add “shaped” modulation to any parameter in Live. Each Shaper can modulate up to eight parameters with its custom curvature. Think of them as LFOs, but instead of just basic sine or triangle waves, etc., you can apply any arbitrary shape you want. To save you time, these fun & interesting shapes have been pre-formulated for you to use in production immediately.

‘Shapes’ come in four varieties, “Pulses”, “Rises”, “Sawblades” and “Silhouettes”.
The first three categories are more utilitarian; head to “Silhouettes” for the most fun stuff…!
