Question about Reasons Malstrom

What does a shaper do?

I understand the other parts of the synth but never understood what the shaper did and why I would use etc.

EA-1 & ER-1 - It's a start for a poor college kid :o
Reason / ReBirth too but I like hardware better.

I think...

Uh, it shapes the sound?

Sorry, I can't really think about it at the moment.

Ah, go to and click the image, then mouse-over the shaper section.

A sine wave shaper on a sine wave seems to do some kind of FM or ringmodulation
