IZotope in collaboration with BT introduced Stutter Edit 2 – a major update to its plug-in for processing micrhythmic sound effects. BT describes the update as “an absolute wormhole of power and inspiration.”
Auto Mode and MIDI Setup – Stutter Edit 2 is a “game effect” – it needs to be “activated” to do something with your sound. Now you can instantly launch Gestures in the new automatic mode, which allows you to activate presets with one button. You can also use the MIDI keyboard to tell Stutter Edit 2 when to start, allowing you to “execute” your effects as a tool.
Banks and Gestures – Stutter Edit 2 includes hundreds of new Gestures (presets) developed by BT and iZotope. When Gesture is triggered, you can turn your audio into a short rhythmic idea or a stretched, evolving sound landscape. Gestures fall into Banks, which are automatically projected onto your MIDI keyboard, so you can run various Gestures at will.
Stutter & Buffer – At the heart of Stutter Edit 2 are the Stutter and Buffer controls that allow you to blur the lines between melody, rhythm and sound. Stutter Edit 2 cut or “buffer” audio into razor-sharp fragments and play them at different speeds.
Time Variant Modifiers – set the range for any effect in Stutter Edit 2 so that it transforms and changes over time using your Gesture. Time Variant Modifiers can be added to any parameter to control how and where the effect is reproduced within the range. Customize your TVM with the Curve Editor to easily create unique moving effects.
Curve Editor allows you to control the movement of the effect when playing Gesture. You can choose a finished curve or draw your own.
