Announce / Soundshaper 6.1 supporting CDP8
« Last post by Robert Fraser on February 01, 2023, 04:40:42 PM »
Soundshaper 6.1 has been released. It installs the latest CDP PC exes, including beta-test versions of over 60 new CDP8 processes. These include Spectral, Multi-channel, Segmentation, Waveset and Synth functions, among others.

As well as being incorporated into the normal process menus, the new processes are also listed separately in a separate menu "Rel8", so that they can be easily identified for testing. The Quick Help on the Parameter Page describes each process, its modes and parameters. A very brief description is also available on the Main Page (also called Quick Help). A provisional version of the official CDP documentation is also well underway and will be available within the online docs soon.

Although the new CDP8 programs have been carefully tested, these are pre-release versions, subject to change, and correct operation cannot be guaranteed. Please do try them out and report anomalies! This is the quickest way to "settle" the software ahead of a full CDP Release 8.
General Board / ProcessPack

I often use Process Pack. Is there any update to this in the offing?

They are both standalone programs - at least for Windows (not sure if there are MAC versions - I think not). There's also a new build of BrkEdit which should be released fairly soon.

Ah, thank you -- I see that both are indeed a part of SS.
SL does not appear to have either of these functions, so I was looking for a standalone release of GM and BE.

I can't speak for the MAC distribution, but the PC set definitely has both programs. Please visit the CDP downloads page to access these.
Comparing the most recent SL updates for PC and MAC (17.0.4 and 17.0.3 respectively): there appears to be two missing sound processes ("EXTEND" and "RHYTHM").

Is this by design, or have I missed something?  ???

I cannot seem to locate a download for the GrainMill or BRKEDIT software referenced in a CDP online tutorial (
Does it still exist?  ???

Thanks Robert, this is great news!
Is there some kind of a changelog available, to see what changed with regard to the last compiled version available on the same site?

Announce / Revised CDP PC program exes
« Last post by Robert Fraser on December 06, 2022, 08:07:04 PM »
A revised set of CDP programs for PC, re-compiled in 2022, is now available. The set comprises CDP Release 7, 7,1 and 7.11.
The programs are available on the CDP downloads page ( - 'Software PC' link) and are mirrored on the Soundshaper downloads page ( The set has all the programs required for both SoundLoom and Soundshaper, including the LoomDatapak extensions.

Both SoundLoom and Soundshaper have this latest version built into their new-user installation files, as do Soundshaper updates/upgrades. The separate download is therefore aimed at existing SoundLoom users who wish to update their CDP software.
Announce / New Soundshaper version
« Last post by Robert Fraser on December 06, 2022, 12:33:22 PM »
Soundshaper 6.03 has now been released. As further updates are unlikely for a while, users are recommended to download this new version. There are several new features and some bugfixes, described here: A new Quick-Help for the main page gives a brief description as you scroll through the process menus. Envelope editing has been revised, and processes using fixed parameter values can now be re-edited on the parameter page.

Soundshaper now includes the CDP programs in a single self-extracting .exe. The full, update and upgrade (from vn 5) versions all include this program set. (Existing users please install to your existing CDP base folder, e.g. \CDPR7). The links on the CDP downloads page (at are to the new version: full and upgrade only - to update an existing copy of Soundshaper6, visit If you wish to retain your present version, please rename it before downloading. Please note that while the installer will over-write older files of the same name, it does NOT erase other files.

If you are an existing SoundLoom user and are installing Soundshaper and SoundLoom within the same CDP base folder, you should also download and install the revised CDP program set, so that the CDP exes are up to date. This can be done from either the CDP or Soundshaper downloads page. (New users will get the new CDP set, so don't need this step.)
