There were no compatibility issues getting Izotope Stutter Edit up and running on my MacBook Pro in Ableton Live 8. The general configuration of the plugin is a bit confusing at first, but once the user realizes that the screen's parameters at any given time only affect one midi key it becomes much easier to maneuver through and set up a whole scale of sweet stutter, gating, and vinyl effects. As far as the plugin's particular parameters go, there are options for buffering the signal, delaying it, filtering it, bit-reducing it, gating it, and of course, stuttering it. Spend a couple hours studying and testing the interface and all of these options will be easily at your disposal.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

So the way that I like to use this plugin is to pre-program all of the buttons on my Novation Launchpad, set it on one or a couple tracks, or the master track, and then trigger the effects live. Stutter Edit works perfectly with the User 1 interface of the Novation Launchpad and adds some really cool, very unique sounds to a song or set. I actually did an entire project for a digital music composition class on live manipulation of a continuous audio signal using Stutter Edit and it performed very well. This is my sixth month using the product and I can say that I am happily satisfied and haven't had to resort to other similar software or VSTs.

OVERALL OPINION

Overall Izotope Stutter Edit is a performance must have for electronic musicians who want to display expressive and clearly live signal manipulation. The effects sound great and are very flexible in their parameters. Having each key set to a different effect allows for as many options as one's midi controller or DAW can handle and the CPU usage isn't excessive. Lots of pros for very few cons. For the price, not too bad seeing as though there are limited cheap or freeware glitch VSTs available for Mac. Bottom line, if glitching out your signal is the goal you can't go wrong with Izotope's Stutter Edit.
