What is BreakTweaker?

BreakTweaker is the beat machine of the future. Powered by three distinct modules, the Sequencer, the Generator, and the MicroEdit Engine, it's a wildly creative rhythmic instrument that can be used with any DAW and MIDI controller. For instant gratification, get started with the diverse presets and content in the Factory Library, a showcase of BreakTweaker's breadth and sonic capabilities. When you want to get deeper, forge new sonic weaponry with BreakTweaker's paradise of tweaky controls and settings.

The Sequencer

Assemble pattern-based beats in the Sequencer, which features six tracks for layering your sounds. The Sequencer can store up to 24 different step patterns, launchable via MIDI for on-the-fly remixing. Design beats that evolve over time with BreakTweaker's advanced isorhythmic step sequencing, which makes it possible for each track to have a unique tempo and step length. Ever heard a 7/8 rhythm against a massive 4/4 breakbeat? You can here.

The MicroEdit Engine

Once you've perfected the ultimate set of drum sounds and sequenced your patterns, it's time for a whole new method of sound design. Enter the MicroEdit Engine. A "MicroEdit" is the division of a single step within your pattern into potentially thousands of slices. These slices can then be contoured and shaped to create harmonic, pitched, and rhythmic effects, resulting in new textures that add maximum ear candy to your ever-evolving beats. By pushing the limits of the brain's ability to perceive sound, the MicroEdit Engine blurs the line between rhythm and pitch, inspiring beats you've never heard before.

The Factory Library

Bringing sounds, patterns, and MicroEdits together into mind-boggling beats, the BreakTweaker Factory Library comes with over 80 global presets that are ready to kickstart your next project. The Factory Library also features over 2 GB of royalty-free sample content designed by electronic production pros. Specializing in a wide variety of percussive sounds, sample categories range from studio essentials like "Kick" and "Snare" to intriguing possibilities like "Glitch" and "Film."

Who Is It For?

BreakTweaker is for anyone looking to create truly original and dynamic beats, both drum-driven and melodic. It's a new platform that inspires different people in different ways, and there's nothing quite like it out there.

EDM Producers

Get "that" drum sound. As a producer, you know the sonic signature of your music is an integral part of what makes it go off in the club. BreakTweaker offers you powerful building blocks for building thrilling beats, like kick and snare hits that have been carefully layered, tuned and synthesized by EDM pros from the Electronica, House, Trance and Dubstep worlds.

Beat Aficionados

Give your beats new, fresh perspective. Whether you want to add BreakTweaker's striking content library to your collection of drum and percussion samples, or find new ways to manipulate and reimagine your existing content, BreakTweaker is for you.

Composers

Create epic percussive rhythms. Combine the isorhythmic Sequencer, MicroEdit glitching, cinematic sample content, and MIDI triggering to create the intense musical effects that underpin many successful film and video game scores and trailers. BreakTweaker is a new breed of rhythmic compositional tool.

The BreakTweaker Story

With their creative forces combined, BT and iZotope bring you an instrument that will change the concept of rhythm, beat and drum programming as you know it. A prodigious producer, technologist, and GRAMMY®-nominated composer, BT is renowned for inventing the "stutter edit" as a musical technique, as found in Stutter Edit, the first product release from BT and iZotope.

BT and iZotope are now back again with BreakTweaker, featuring BT's patented micro edit technology based on pioneering rhythmic sound design research. Fascinated by the brain's cognitive limits, BT has always been intrigued by the way we perceive rhythm, particularly the threshold point of where our ears perceive rhythm as pitch. The idea of exploring and exploiting this threshold inspired BreakTweaker, a tool where BT could finally realize rhythmic possibilities that he had once imagined but had never before been able to hear.

Features

MicroEdit Anything

Traditional sequencing is so 1984. With BreakTweaker, you can slice and manipulate audio at a resolution that would blow MIDI’s mind (and your DAW’s). Thanks to the MicroEdit Engine within BreakTweaker, each step can be repeated or chopped at an infinitesimally small rate, allowing you to create buzzing musical harmony, texturize a step with extra rhythms, or even use rhythm as a synthesis tool, locking drum hits to individual pitches. Even the most ordinary of drum hits can be transformed into a thing of the future.

  • Glitch and revolutionize any drum sample or rhythm with hi-res pitch, arp, and texture control—all the way down to a micro-slice level.
  • Take a wild ride through the audio space/time continuum by dividing a single sequenced event into up to thousands of unique slices that pulse with sonic movement, as defined by Division, Pitch, Time or Speed.
  • Create the most unique drum sound you’ve ever heard: add tension, slopes and curves to shape the contour and rotation of the slices, then apply additional FX.
  • Quickly change the entire sound of a beat with the Randomize feature, which automatically MicroEdits the selected step in your Sequencer pattern.​

Create Evolving Sequences

Whether you’re working with drums, bass, or abstract noises, BreakTweaker is driven by the patterns you define in the Sequencer. Freed from the constraints of a pre-defined time signature, BreakTweaker’s Sequencer can program anything from basic patterns to unique tracks of patterns with individual lengths and speeds.

  • Build exciting beats with the 32-step Sequencer, with up to 24 patterns synced to your DAW. Launch, trigger, latch, and switch your way to full-fledged drum sample and synth productions.
  • Evolve and transform your patterns by giving each Sequencer track a unique tempo and step length, allowing the entire beat pattern to develop into new musical ideas over time.
  • Create entire productions, then route the individual Sequencer tracks to separate outputs for optimum mixing with BreakTweaker’s Multi-Out mode.

Explore Stunning Content

BreakTweaker comes with an extensive Factory Library of samples to choose from for building your next custom kit. Get the latest in cutting-edge drum sound design, as well as an entire suite of carefully produced classic sounds that no self-respecting drum library could be without. Why spend hours building the basics from scratch when BreakTweaker already has it all?

  • Explore today's top sounds, designed by today’s top musicians and DJs, including BT—available royalty free for use in BreakTweaker or your sampler of choice.
  • Wield dubstep power with multi-layered kicks and snares for earth-shattering presence.
  • Elicit cinematic drama with Booms and Hits, Metals, Cymbals and Bells, as well as Vocal Breath one-shots.
  • Kickstart your next track with over 80 beat presets that showcase BreakTweaker’s power.

Sculpt Next-Gen Drum Sounds

The Generator is a powerful tool for drum synthesis. At its core are two Morphing Wavetable Oscillators—capable of reproducing anything from the simplest to the most complex sounds a synth can pump out. An entire library of custom waveforms by BT and other top producers gives you the building blocks you need to make compelling synthesized timbres.

  • Sculpt the next generation of drum sounds with unique-sounding wavetables, including BT's prized wavetables (never before available!).
  • Go far beyond traditional synth textures—choose from five wavetable synthesis modes: Single, Additive, Ring Modulation, Amplitude Modulation (AM), or Frequency Modulation (FM).
  • Morph and modulate away with quadruple LFO and Envelope modulation routing, perfect for adjusting pitch, wavetables, amplitude and more.
  • Get a start on advanced drum design with inbuilt Generator presets that you can tweak and adjust to taste.

Add Movement

Make every step of your next track sound more exciting, more musical, and more dynamic. BreakTweaker’s custom-designed LFO and Envelope provide some of the most creative modulation you’ll find anywhere. Each modulation source can manipulate the settings of any Generator parameter, moving the parameter between a modulation range of two values.

  • Modulate anything in the Generator window with one of four LFOs or Envelopes. Assign up to two Modulators per parameter to create new movement, add harmonics, and enhance your productions.
  • Create previously unheard textures with innovative wavetable LFO control, featuring LFO shapes that have never before been available for synthesis.

Get Effective

To dirty up, filter down, spread out, or otherwise mangle your sound, BreakTweaker’s Generators come fortified with an array of distortion effects, as well as vintage-modeled New York and Tokyo filters for shaping your sound.

  • Smooth samples and meld layers together with the custom-modeled, analog-style New York and Tokyo High Pass, Band Pass, and Low Pass filters.
  • Distort, mangle and transform with dual-stage distortions inspired by the iZotope’s cult classic Trash 2, featuring algorithms such as Warm, Transistor, Hard, Digital, Raw, and Aliasing.
  • Enhance width, add stereo space and create lush drum hits with individual Chorus effects for every sequenced step via the MicroEdit Engine.

Discover the Perfect Sound

The Discover feature in BreakTweaker is a novel way to narrow down your search for just the right drum sound. Powered by iZotope's MediaMined™ technology, Discover will analyze and display similar-sounding samples when you’re browsing the Factory Library. No more scrolling endlessly through sample lists when your drum sound is close, but not perfect.

  • Easily search the vast Factory Library with an audio intelligence engine that will match complementary drum sounds: not based on meta-data, but on actual musical analysis.

Stutter Edit

Play Effects Like an Instrument

It's an effect. It's an instrument. It's Stutter Edit—an innovative tool for both studio and stage, designed by BT and developed by iZotope.

Tear up your tracks in real-time, building thrilling fills, complex effects, shimmering sweeps, and staggering stutters that will leave your listeners screaming for more. They'll think you spent hours slaving over the slices…but all it took was a press of a key. (Don't worry, we won't tell.)

Key Features

  • Play effects like an instrument
  • Remix in real-time, on stage or in the studio
  • Cutting edge audio slicing and manipulation
  • Elegant and intuitive MIDI control

Who is it for?

Laptop Performers 

Produce studio-quality flourishes on the fly. Effects that once took hours of complex editing are readily available at your creative command. Flawless tempo sync and timing grids help you drop the beat perfectly. Whether your game is electronica, hip-hop, pop, or beyond, Stutter Edit adds dynamics, tension, drama and artistry to even the simplest tracks and loops.

A star on the stage, Stutter Edit has been a key component of major music tours, played live to millions of people worldwide. It’s the perfect complement to programs like Ableton Live for revitalizing remixes, mashups, or arrangements.

Producers

Tired of every hook in the book? Exploit Stutter Edit's sonic capabilities and the next hot trend could be yours. Stutters are just the start…unleash your own style of razor-sharp rhythmic gate, pan, digital distortion, delay and filter effects. Whether you're producing for yourself or others, Stutter Edit is a breakthrough for anyone willing to defy convention.

Your intuition reigns with this versatile tool. Take a break from painstaking cuts, slicing, and complex editing. Fruitless trial and error is over: fast-forward to inspiration by performing musically useful experiments with just a MIDI controller and your favorite host.

Sound Designers

From loading screens to battle scenes, play up the fresh factor in sound effects for games, films, radio transitions and stings. Easily transform audio material into ear-catching delights. Enrich soundtracks and sound effects with unique spatial and temporal manipulations. Infuse your work with a modern sonic twist and leave your clients scratching their heads in wonder.

Bring the sound design process to your fingertips by experimenting in real-time with the full suite of stutter, gate, pan, digital distortion, delay, and filter effects, all of which can be tweaked, tuned, and adjusted with a press of a single key or pad.

Musicians

Stutter Edit has made its mark as a secret weapon on the Billboard charts. Now you too can freshen your track's sound and explore new musical possibilities, whether you're composing, recording, or just plain rocking out. The added effect of audio effects can inspire your next big hit!

Then imagine also playing those effects, wielding control over every parameter as if it were an instrument in itself. Stutter Edit goes far beyond simple effect automation: one press of a key can disintegrate a vocal line into a syncopated rhythmic roll, or transform each drum hit to an arpeggiated scale of pitches. Save time, enhance creativity and stay in control, whether on stage or in the studio.

How does it work?

Stutter Edit's features revolve around an innovative engine that continuously samples live audio, storing that audio in a buffer that can be manipulated in a myriad of ways. The key to unlocking Stutter Edit's capabilities is the use of Gestures: a set of effects and their associated timelines that reside on a single MIDI note. The audible result of a Gesture can vary from simple to complex—a Stutter Gesture could simply repeat a small chunk of audio at an 1/8 note rhythmic rate, or it could trigger a run of raging glitches that get decimated by a bit crusher before being filtered into a wash of echoes. Whoa.

Condensing such sonic adventures into a single key press is what makes Stutter Edit so playable, especially with its intelligent sense of timing. Stutter Edit is designed with musicality in mind, which frees you to make wild sounds that still feel like a natural part of your tracks. Outside of the studio, couple Stutter Edit with a host like Ableton Live to rocket your performances into a new world of organic improvisation.

The best way to learn more is to simply start playing, listening, and observing the power of Stutter Edit's controls. Get started by checking out feature details and audio samples below, then download the demo and try for yourself!

Rhythmic Manipulation

Whether you’re constructing the next chart topper, sound effect or live performance, Stutter Edit’s cutting-edge audio slicing and manipulation saves you time. Abuse new rhythmic possibilities safe in the knowledge that everything’s synced perfectly to your timeline… unless, of course, you hit the mod wheel to override everything to granular infinity and beyond!

  • Create incredible sweeps that transition from one rhythmic value to another, or repeat audio at a rhythmic note value with the Stutter Module.
  • Choose a note value from 1/4 to 1/1024 for the Stutter Module to sweep or step between. That's not enough? Make your audio repeat at a high enough frequency to turn it into musical pitches with the Stutter Matrix.
  • Create unheard-of stepping effects that transform your audio into complex rolls, trills and even arpeggios, using the Quantize Module. With Quantize off, Stutter Edit sweeps between note values continuously.
  • Dice drum loops. Jump between notes in a vocal phrase. Use the Buffer Position’s slick radar screen to choose where Stutter Edit pulls audio out of the buffer. You can even randomize playback order for unexpected results.

Colorful Effects

Inject new colors and textures into your music with the real-time, instantly gratifying audio effects built right in to the Stutter Edit engine. Ride the new, real-time wave-changing paradigm. Whether combining filter sweeps with beat repeats, delays with reverse swoops or bit crushers with granular break-downs, let your music and effects do the talking, not countless hours of editing.

  • Make aggressive resonant sweeps or create LFO-like modulation that locks to each Gesture's timeline using the Filter Module. Shape the sound of each key-controlled Gesture individually, or use the Global Filter to apply a buildup/breakdown filter sweep to your entire audio track.
  • Fly from a subtle chorus to a springy rubber-band effect with the deep Delay Module. Dedicated resonant band-pass filters provide perfectly tweakable results to your wet, delayed signal.
  • Get a dose of digital distortion crunch or add a periodic growl using the Bit Reduction Module. Like every Stutter Edit module, it'll move in sync with the tempo.
  • Get back to the old-timey future with the Lo-Fi Module. Adjust the Lo-Fi settings to get a "vintage digital" vibe or bury the whole track in fuzz.

The Generator

While Stutter Gestures process audio, Generator Gestures mix noises and crashes with your track. The Generator gives you the ideal tool for creating washes of noise, dramatic build-ups, and hits that add excitement to a track.

For performance, choose where you want the Generator Gesture to end, and no matter where you trigger it, it will intelligently stop on the perfect beat. You can even hold a Generator Gesture as you jump between different Stutter Gestures. The result: an improvised arrangement that sounds like you've spent hours toiling in the studio.

  • Build tension, or drop a breakdown via a downward swoosh of noise, with the Generator’s Pitch Module. Scale the pitch of the Generator's noise tables over twelve octaves automatically.
  • Add a little more bite by adding the Lo-Fi Module in the Generator Gesture for a grainy, gritty noise wash or stab.
  • Release a dramatic build-up into a trail of decaying echoes with the Generator’s dedicated Delay Module, ensuring a perfectly smooth transition.
  • Automate the Generator’s resonant Band-pass filter to shape and squelch blasts of noise.

Stutter Edit Presets

Stutter Edit comes with over 35 preset banks and over 800 gestures, all designed for a vast variety of musical genres or specific types of effects.

  • Cut, jump, and reimagine your rhythmic pulse with the Cuts and Jumps and BT Signature category presets, Stutter Edit’s bread and butter.
  • Warp all sense of time (while staying on grid and in tempo!) using the Time Warp category presets.
  • Mix your audio 360 degrees through the audio space/time continuum by launching one of the Space and Delay or Stereo Tricks category presets.
  • Bring back the sounds of old with presets laced in chip-tune, arcade-style nostalgia for glitches and beat juggling that marries the past with futuristic rhythms.
  • Why stop there? Expansion Packs are available here as free downloads to further enhance your Stutter Edit experience.

Other Highlights

  • Elegant and intuitive MIDI control allows for simple setup, letting you focus on your music and your sound. Claim back those hours wasted adjusting hundreds of parameters in multiple third-party effects with mouse control.
  • Variable curves enhance the modulation characteristics of the parameters themselves, creating interesting textures that develop over time.
  • Automatic host sync, with custom definitions available for both Gesture Length and Release Mode, allows you full control over the music without the need to trigger effects perfectly in time.
  • Super low CPU and rock solid stability allows for reliable live use.
