We got a national holiday in Germany today, which means no work 😉 But the Fiver Friday never rest, so here are this week’s findings!: 

Comments Off on Plugin Review: CableGuys – ShaperBox 2

Most of you guys already know the awesome plugins by CableGuys just like PanCake, FilterShaper or ShaperBox. Recently they released ShaperBox 2, an upgrade to their arguably sickest plugin and we were fortunate enough to receive a free login and download.
