iZotope and BT introduce Stutter Edit

Related: , , , , , , , , , , Posted in news on Jan 13, 2011 - comment 1 comment

iZotope has announced the release of Stutter Edit, a playable effect for live performance and the studio designed by pioneering producer BT.

iZotope Stutter Edit

Stutter Edit’s features revolve around an innovative live sampling engine that lets producers, laptop performers and other musicians manipulate audio in real-time. Stutter Edit slices audio into small fragments and sequences the pieces into razor-sharp rhythmic effects, recreating techniques that once took hours to perfect in the studio. Results can range from jarring to subtle: a melody can be disintegrated into a syncopated rhythmic roll, or a drum hit can be transformed into an arpeggiated scale of pitches. The complex set of tools in Stutter Edit is balanced by an elegant MIDI control scheme, which makes adding effects a completely intuitive process—much like playing an instrument.

In addition to these trademark stutter effects, performers and producers can juggle between a multitude of rhythmic effects including gate, pan, digital distortion, delays and filters. The Generator module creates custom noise sweeps that can be triggered along with stutter effects to build tension and create dynamics, both in live performances and studio arrangements.

“Stutter Edit exists because I wanted to step on stage with a laptop and improvise the complex and musical rhythmic effects that sometimes took me days of trial and error to create,” explains BT. “I’m elated to partner with iZotope and unveil Stutter Edit to the world, and I can’t wait to see what other producers, composers and sound designers will do with this insane new effect. I truly believe this will dramatically change the topography and scope of what is possible with live sound design and remixing.

On the stage, Stutter Edit makes it simple for laptop performers to create improvised remixes that include incredible stutters, fills and build-ups. Stutter Edit’s MIDI-controlled workflow is a perfect complement to performers using Ableton Live for DJ sets. In the studio, musicians can utilize Stutter Edit to add color and transitions to recordings, making arranging with effects all about intuition instead of trial and error.

iZotope and BT are showcasing Stutter Edit at the 2011 NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA. Visit iZotope’s NAMM Booth 6920 for a live demo with BT and Blake Lewis (“American Idol” Season 6 runner-up) at 2PM on Saturday, January 15.

Stutter Edit is available to purchase for an introductory price of $149 USD through February 14, 2011. Stutter Edit will have a $249 USD MSRP thereafter.

Pluggotic releases Footile

Pluggotic Footile

Pluggotic has released Footile, a free glitch effect plug-in for Windows.

Footile is the remix of a vst effect by Novuzeit, Motile. Motile and Footile share the same serial-multifx concept and sound architecture but with a different modulation sistem.

In Footile, the effects parameters can be tweaked on four different “scenes”. Each scene is shown (colour coded) as a corner of a xy pad in the middle of the interface, so moving the cursor will morph each scene into the others.

Furthermore, morphing can be modulated with independent & mixable lfos, sequencers, envelope followers, randomizers (s/h), operating on x or y axis or both at host-synchronized rates.

Inspired by a certain quest for failure, Footile can be pretty unsubtle. It will treat signals with the following fx chain: pitch shifter-bitrate crusher-psycho-grains-glitch-metal-filter-control. Every effect can be disactivated and mixed at will.

Footile comes with 32 unsuccessful presets.

Footile is available to download as a freeware VST effect plug-in for Windows PC.

Pluggotic releases Squosc

Pluggotic Squosc

Pluggotic has released Squosc, a free effect plug-in inspired by squareboxes.

When any material passes through it’s input the constantly running oscillators are modulated via an envelope follower. Unusual oscillators intermodulations and a series of “bend-buttons” offer a cheap and non-always-logic escape from traditional midi-note or pattern based composition. an example could be a drumloop turned into bleeping melodies, electric basslines, trashy drones, 8bit style sweeps and other less-stable oddities, Squosc comes with 33 horrible presets for quick non-sense.

When it’s input is silent, it doubles up as a tone generator.

Well know for the raw sound, squareboxes are usually processed with guitar amplifiers, filters, reverbs or whatever chain of fxs. they come unlabeled pretty often, too. Squosc makes no exception.

Squosc is available to download as a freeware VST effect plug-in for Windows PC.

Audio Damage releases Discord3

Audio Damage Discord3

Audio Damage has released Discord3, a comprehensive refresh of the popular Discord series of multi-effects.

From subtle ADT effects to completely chaotic granular destruction, and everything in between, Discord3 is a capable and broad-reaching multi-effect plug-in.

The pitch-shifter consists of three separate algorithms: a “vintage” mode (the original Discord algorithm, modeled on the Eventide H910 and H949), a “clean” mode for more modern shifting sounds, and a “granular” mode for experimental effects. Each mode has its strengths, depending on the input material, and Discord3 has a broad palette of capabilities as a result. The P1 and P2 algorithms have full control over the buffer (window) size of the shift effect, for fine tuning the shift to the input signal, or for stranger sound effects. At the extremes of the six-octave shift range, some truly strange aliasing and artifacts can be had with this control.

Now, to be clear, if you’re looking for a nice, clean diatonic pitch shifter for fine surgery and re-pitching the full program, you need to look elsewhere. Discord3 is a tool for sound design, barberpole shifting delays, and special effects; think Eno, Visconti, Bowie, or Dirty Mind-era Prince and you’ll be on the right track.

Discord3 features

  • Pitch Shifting: Discord3 contains a pair of shifters with three separate algorithms (Vintage, Clean, and Granular) for different styles of pitch shifting.
  • Buffer Size Control: The P1 (Vintage) and P2 (Clean) algorithms have a Buffer Size control, from 32 to 2048 samples, for fine-tuning the pitch shifting effect.
  • Delay: Tempo-synced or free-running delays with feedback, cross-feedback, and a sophisticated bandpass filter.
  • Modulation: Discord3 has a pair of LFOs that can modulate delay time, pitch shift amount, and filter center frequency.
  • True Stereo Operation: Discord3 has a true stereo signal path, with entirely independent control over each side.
  • All New GUI: Discord3 has a completely re-designed GUI, with animated displays and a unique “grab-the-digit” value adjustment method.
  • MIDI Note Control: Six octaves of pitch-shifting can be controlled with MIDI note input.
  • Full MIDI Learn: Discord3 features MIDI learn for every parameter, for full hardware control.

Discord3 is available to purchase as an effect plug-in for PC and Mac (AU/VST) for $59 USD. An upgrade is available to Discord v1, v1.5, and/or v2 users for $10 USD.
