Audio examples

The Forgotten Waveshaper 2 is around the corner and owners of version 1.x will get a free update while supplies last and a big discount in case all the free updates have been given away already!

With the Forgotten Wave Shaper, you have the tools in your hands and the craziest distortion algorithms imaginable at your fingertips. No compromises and full customizability! Draw the wave shaping curve exactly as you'd like - whether it should be symmetric or asymmetric. Adjust the amount with the dry/wet control and blast your listeners away with a fat and crunchy guitar or make them listen for subtle saturation.
