Stutter Edit Producer's Guide

iZotope’s Stutter Edit has now established itself one of the most popular effects plugins on the market, finding a home in the collection of most producers and DJs due to its great sound, versatility and multitude of uses both in the studio and on stage. In this course, Producertech senior tutor Rob Jones works his way through the plugin, skilfully explaining how each area works whilst constructing a new bank of presets from scratch.

After showing how to set up the effect in Ableton Live, Logic and Maschine, Rob begins with some examples of how to create simple effects progressions, called gestures, starting off with high- and low- pass filter sweeps. He then moves on to the main Stutter sections, taking you through the principles behind each one before building a number of different presets, including classic, looping buildups, choppy, time-stretched beat destroyers and much more.

As well as using Stutter Edit’s sections to create some more traditional effects like flangers and bit-crushers, Rob shows how they can also be used to make really useful vinyl scrubbing effects and subtler send effects layers. He then moves onto the plugin’s generator engine, which allows the programming of a variety of noise-based impacts and riser FX presets.

The 2 hours of streamed tutorials come with the bank from the course, containing 15 highly usable presets. Before signing up, check out the sample module, for an example of the teaching style and course content.
