"I really love the idea behind Curve! This unlimited growing plugin always provides for new surprise. ...Tweet it! Save it! Sync it! ;)" Serhat Sakin (Syke'n'Sugarstarr aka. SESA),
"Auf jeden Fall sehr schöne Bässe, Leads und wirres Zeug machbar. Es macht Spaß damit Patches zu bauen und der Sound ist auch ganz weit vorne. Curve als zweiten Synth mit Spaßfaktor." BSamaritain
"First off, the feel of editing the waves is superb! It feels easy, fun and inspiring. The synth is coming along nicely! The note grid works great! Quite time saving." Ed Ten Eyck, http:///www.edtaudio.com
"Love the sound of Curve" Philippe G.
"Waves zeichnen macht Spaß und ist recht einfach." ugh
"I really like the simple, clean aesthetic. Wave editing is nicely implemented and easy to use (seeing the relationship between waveshape and partials is interesting) and the ability to also use waves as LFO shapes is clever. The online patch database is great idea too." Mr Wobble
"I think the preset browser is great. The tooltips are really useful!" Zee
"Have tried it too little time, but sound in 1.0 - is amazing...!" Vlad
"I'm really enjoying my time with that Curve synth. I like the sound engine. of course the drawing engine is really well done, I have a whole lot fun playing with the drawing grid. really flexible and can get things done really quickly, it's really intuitive and easy to work. so let me congratulate y'all. I love the layout of the plugin. everything is clear and in your face, it's intuitive and easy to start messing with that synthesizer. I love the way the presets are handled. the tags are fine to me too. I like the way you can sync with the community and be able to easily share presets with everyone. that is really nice and you can get some feedback with the community ratings which is cool. I had no other crashes and I tried the plugin in some weird / extreme conditions which is great." arbee, http://arbee.bandcamp.com
"It's a an incredibly capable drone synth, and easier to control than most FM synths. The purely functional layout lends itself very well to building long FX sounds. The wave drawing is smooth as... something REALLY smooth. It's very simple to use, and gives results quick." Debutante from KVRaudio
"GUI: Nice and clean, great overview. Sound: Very nice clear oscillators. I do like the FM as well. The LFOs go up very high, Great for FM effects. I like this a lot. Stability seems good so far, I have yet to really torture the plug but so far it behaves very well. This thing does great basses." Lazerkind
"I love the synth and the simplicity of the GUI is a big plus, it's so cool yet very practical." Charles Tyler, vocals/synth D-List
"Impressive synth. I'm continually surprised at how much I can do with such a simple layout. It's like Absynth without the learning curve." Jeremy, a spiral out
"I love the character of the sounds from Curve; something strangely organic and natural about them." nannygrimshaw
"VolumeShaper and FilterShaper are for me the go-to bread-n-butter tools that I've used in every production every day since I've had 'em. Period." Tobias Lützenkirchen, producer of 2008's German Top 10 chart hit "3 Tage Wach", remixer for John Digweed and Coburn,
"FilterShaper and VolumeShaper have plenty of use here for adding some weird oneshot or sequenced modulation or variations on the volume of single channel tracks. Working with such clean and clear GUIs is just a breeze in terms of understanding at once what you're actually tweaking, even when in doubt, but, more importantly, the sound of the filter is indeed rich from scratch, and never dull or lacking life, even when not sequenced.
The possibilities of adding new nuances to some filter sequences are really astonishing, with all those waveforms available internally, all of them routable in endless ways to combine in life-injected filter movements with complex or weird evolution of settings. In such many genres of electronic music like drum & bass or dubstep, where there's always some bassline evolving and rarely statically playing a pattern, or complex variations of breakbeat programming, such plugins are just plain heaven-sent to add quickly some tweaks that will "move" the effected sound, even while the variations of the settings are just quite subtle. FilterShaper, in particular, apart from being a real good-sounding filter even when used in a static behaviour as a "normal" LP/BP/BR/HP filter, is the choice to go when I need to start adding some "evolving" attitude with a filter on a track channel: the chance of controlling several aspects of the wavesequenced triggering to obtain complex modulation routing sequences, simply can answer to ANY need of adding some spice of life even to the dullest bassline or lead synth sounds. I use FilterShaper practically at least in a couple of instances on all my projects."

David Guetta on cutting a kick to fit with the bassline: "Very very recently I've found a way to do it that is really amazing, I actually did it here.. the sidechain that I am using with the bass is something that is called VolumeShaper". Btw. it's a great video with quite some tricks in there, definitely worth watching! David Guetta
"The best music programs offer volume envelopes to do this sort of thing but VolumeShaper goes further permitting automation of the nodes, and flipping through ten snapshots of curves! I got some amazing effects out of it especially with drum parts." Francisco
"Thanks very much for 2 very useful plugins...the sidechaining presets on VolumeShaper are particularly useful... Awesome work guys!!!" Keith Gregg, The Codeten Project
"I have tried VolumeShaper, and I totally love it! I use it to shape my kicks in a personal way, and after that I mirror the envelope image and put it on my bass for some unique sidechain rhythms." Fons Brinkhuis
"We're big fans of all the Cableguys plugins, but MidiShaper is our favourite. Being able to output MIDI CC's from your envelopes and LFOs to any other plugin in your DAW creates so many new possibilities, it's such a great sound design tool!" Pat Party (Evil Nine),
