In one of our weekly Instagram posts, we’re focusing on Volume Shapers:

Making sure every sound has its own place to breathe and stand out is key in mixing a track, and that’s exactly what Volume Shapers (also called Enveloppe Shapers or Enveloppers) are about.

We’re all familiar with with the concept of sidechain compression, ducking the amplitude of a signal when another is playing to get more cohesive, cleaner and punchier mixes.

But there are now plenty other ways and solutions to ‘sidechain’ with each having it’s own characteristics: Multiband-processing, tempo sync, custom drawable curves and shapes…

We have compiled a list of some of the best sidechain plugins you can use for both production & mixing process.

And since we all love free plugins, we also included what we think are the best free plugins for that purpose.

Hopefully you will discover new helpful tools 🎛️⁠
