Released back in 2011, the original Stutter Edit saw the iZotope team with US electronic music heavyweight BT to create a plugin that offered an easy route to capturing the producer’s distinctive, detailed, glitchy effects. It wasn’t the first ‘glitch’ multi-effect out there, and in the near-decade since its launch, many similar tools have appeared, but its popularity has endured thanks to an impressive balance between power and ease-of-use.
This long-awaited second version expands upon, rather than drastically changing the design of the original. As before, the core of Stutter Edit 2 lies in the Stutter and Buffer modules. Between them, these control the parameters dictating how the effect captures and triggers incoming audio, with an assortment of tools for shaping the rhythm and timing of the effect. Results range from rigid, trap-like repeats to chaotic IDM glitches, and even audio-rate effects when cranked to max speed.
