iZotope has announced the release of Stutter Edit 2, an update to the plugin that lets you create the famous “stutter” editing effect with one button to slice and dice your samples, tracks, and mixes.

Redesigned and reimagined for the demands of the modern workflow, Stutter Edit 2 comes with a new Auto Mode, updated UI, and new effects modules to add movement to your mix.

iZotope Stutter Edit 2 Delay

The unique Stutter Edit 2 effect plays back with your session, allowing you to trigger a “gesture” with a MIDI keyboard, or use the new Auto mode.

In Auto mode, your Gestures will play back automatically so you can concentrate on fine tuning your sound. If you’d rather use a keyboard for a live-performance feel, Stutter Edit 2 will guide you with a help system that detects your DAW and offers step-by-step instructions.

From simple trap patterns, cinematic sweeps, transitions, and everything in between, Stutter Edit 2 comes is full of new Gestures (presets) designed by BT and iZotope’s expert sound design team. Use Auto mode to audition Gestures to find the perfect match, and plug in your MIDI controller to automatically map gestures to your keys to fire off any combination of Gestures.

Add color and vibe to your gestures with a suite of colorful effects modules, including brand new effects like Reverb and Chorus. Set a Range for any parameter and Stutter Edit 2 will “move” that effect along with the Gesture. Add even more craziness using the new Time-Variant Modifiers—make your reverb tails sweep, your gates and pans pump, and your distortion disintegrate in time with your stutter edit. Effects can be bypassed and rearranged in any order, creating limitless possibilities for sonic madness.

Changes in Stutter Edit 2

  • Auto Mode lets you trigger gestures instantly with one button. You can also use a MIDI keyboard to tell Stutter Edit 2 when to trigger, letting you “perform” your effects like an instrument.
  • Hundreds of new Gestures (presets) designed by BT and iZotope.
  • The Bank system organizes gestures into different use cases, so you can easily find the right gesture for your production.
