In Auto mode, your Gestures will play back automatically so you can concentrate on fine tuning your sound.

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.
More effects, insane potential
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.
One plug-in, endless inspiration

The Bank system organizes gestures into different use cases, so you can easily find the right gesture for your production.
Stutter & Buffer
At the heart of Stutter Edit 2 are the Stutter and Buffer controls, letting you blur the lines between melody, rhythm, and sound. Stutter Edit 2 cuts or “buffers” your audio up into razor-sharp slices and plays them back at different speeds. Set a slower stutter for funkier grooves, or create edits so fast that they turn into pitch. Set a Range and make the edits speed up, slow down, or both at once.
Stutter controls how many slices of your audio play back with your gesture, and how fast
Buffer controls what sections of your audio Stutter Edit 2 stores and plays back
Deep customization options let you control Rate, Quantization, and more to keep your edits in time with your session
(New!) Time Variant Modifiers
Set a Range for any effect in Stutter Edit 2 to make it morph and change in time with your gesture. Time-Variant Modifiers can be added to any parameter to control how and where within the range the effect plays back. Customize your TVMs with the Curve Editor to easily create unique moving effects. Not sure what curve to use? Just select from one of 12 premade curves and start experimenting!
The Curve Editor lets you control the movement of the effect as you play your gesture back. Choose a premade curve or draw your own!
Set a Range and Time-Variant Modifier (TVM) to create insane moving effects, from sweeping filters to pumping reverb tails and more

Unlimited Creative Potential
With a full custom signal chain and deep customization with the new Curve Editor, Stutter Edit 2 offers unlimited possibilities for creating movement in your mix.
(New!) Limiter & Output
Stutter Edit 2 includes a brand new Output section, with dry/wet controls, output gain, and a flexible, colorful Limiter. Of course, we wouldn’t just give you any normal output section: you can set a Modifier for every output parameter, so it’s possible to recreate the classic “sidechain” effect, mix in random bits of dry signal, and make instant fade-outs.
A greatly expanded Distort module adds grit, grime, or shifting combinations of the two. A new multi-band mode unlocks more creative options: choose from 18(!) different types of distortion between two bands. By adding Modifiers and using the Curve Editor, you can make your distortion effects move, sweep, and jump. Go gritty with your stutter edits for those amped-up house productions!
Digitally destroy your audio with the new Lo-Fi module. A unique effect of the modern age, Lo-Fi gives you mind-melting bitcrushing and undersampling effects, key to creating the famous “glitch” sound.
Add artificial depth and thicken your sound with the new Chorus module. With the Range controls and the Curve Editor, you can create pitched sweeps and moving, panned stereo doubles.
This hidden treasure in Sutter Edit 2 is a recreation of a reverb from BT’s personal collection. Stutter Edit 2 redefines reverb by letting you add Modifiers to any reverb parameter. This lets you create insane effects and spaces that fold back in on themselves and change dynamically with your music.
Comb filtering introduces a unique, ringing filter sound similar to a chorus. This new module in Stutter Edit 2 lets you push comb effects to their extreme and create swells of feedback in stereo or mono.
(New!) Flanger & Phaser
Add psychedelic energy to your stutter edits with the Flanger and Phaser.
Stutter Edit 2 gives you easy auto-filtering with Lowpass and Highpass modules. Easily create smooth filter sweeps or resonant, screaming effects that lock in tempo with your stutter effects.
Fans of iZotope Vinyl know the Tapestop, the famous slowdown effect from the turntable era. Add this to your gestures and set the Rate to create repeated slowdowns at different speeds, a sound design trick that would be impossible with any other plug-in!
An insanely flexible Delay module rounds out Stutter Edit 2’s collection of effects. This Delay can respond to your touch with the Cut on Release feature, instantly cutting off the delay when you release your MIDI key. In addition, you get options for filter frequency and resonance, and like everything else in Stutter Edit 2, your delays can move in time with your gesture.
