iZotope, in collaboration with BT, has introduced Stutter Edit 2 – a major update to their micro-rhythmic audio effect processing plugin.
BT describes the update as “an absolute wormhole of power and inspiration.”
Stutter Edit 2 lets you create the famous “stutter” editing effect with one button to slice and dice your samples, tracks, and mixes. The update features a new Auto Mode, updated UI, new effects modules and more.
Here are the key features in Stutter Edit 2:
- Auto Mode & MIDI Setup – Stutter Edit 2 is a “playable effect”—it must be “triggered” in order to do anything to your audio. Now you can trigger gestures instantly with the new Auto mode, which lets you trigger your gestures with one button. You can also use a MIDI keyboard to tell Stutter Edit 2 when to trigger, letting you “perform” your effects like an instrument. W
- Banks and Gestures – Stutter Edit 2 includes hundreds of new Gestures (presets) designed by BT and iZotope. When a gesture is triggered, you can turn your audio into a short rhythmic idea, or a drawn out, evolving soundscape. Gestures come in Banks which map automatically to your MIDI keyboard so you can trigger different gestures at will.
- Stutter & Buffer – At the heart of Stutter Edit 2 are the Stutter and Buffer controls, letting you blur the lines between melody, rhythm, and sound. Stutter Edit 2 cuts or “buffers” your audio up into razor-sharp slices and plays them back at different speeds.
- Time Variant Modifiers – Set a Range for any effect in Stutter Edit 2 to make it morph and change in time with your gesture. Time-Variant Modifiers can be added to any parameter to control how and where within the range the effect plays back. Customize your TVMs with the Curve Editor to easily create unique moving effects.
- The Curve Editor lets you control the movement of the effect as you play your gesture back. You can choose a premade curve or draw your own.
