iZotope BREAKTWEAKER overview

  • 1Description

BreakTweaker from iZotope is a virtual instrument for drum sculpting and beat sequencing, compatible with all modern major DAWs. Geared towards EDM producers, DJs, and composers, the software consists of three modules, the Sequencer, the Generator, and the MicroEdit Engine.

Assemble pattern-based beats in the sequencer, which features six tracks for layering sounds. The sequencer can store up to twenty-four different step patterns, triggered via MIDI for on-the-fly remixing. Isorhythmic step sequencing makes it possible for each track to have a unique tempo and step length.

The Generator is a drum synthesis module, featuring morphing wavetable synthesis, one-shot sample loading, and noise tables. Additional processing includes dual-stage distortions and vintage-modeled filters. Four LFOs with unique wavetable shapes and four envelopes provide extensive modulation possibilities for almost every single generator parameter. Every sequencer track supports up to three generators.

The MicroEdit Engine provides a different method of sound design. A "MicroEdit" is the division of a single step within a pattern into potentially thousands of slices. These slices can be contoured and shaped to create harmonic, pitched, and rhythmic effects. Each step can be repeated or chopped at an infinitesimally small rate.

A factory library comes with over eighty global presets that are ready for any project. It also features over 2 GB of royalty-free samples designed by electronic production professionals. Optional add-on expansion libraries suited to a variety of production styles are also available.

  • Slice and manipulate audio at very fine resolution levels using the MicroEdit Engine
  • Each step can be repeated or chopped at an infinitesimally small rate, allowing for creating buzzing musical harmony, texturing a step with extra rhythms, or using rhythm as a synthesis tool, locking drum hits to individual pitches
  • Glitch and process any drum sample or rhythm with pitch, arp, and texture control
  • Divide a single sequenced event into thousands of unique slices that pulse with sonic movement, as defined by division, pitch, time or speed
  • Add tension, slopes and curves to shape the contour and rotation of the slices and then apply additional FX
  • Quickly change the entire sound of a beat with the randomize feature, which automatically MicroEdits the selected step in a sequencer pattern
Evolving Sequences
  • Whether working with drums, bass, or abstract noises the software is driven by the patterns defined in the sequencer
  • Freed from the constraints of a pre-defined time signature, the sequencer can program anything from basic patterns to unique tracks of patterns with individual lengths and speeds
  • Build beats with the 32-step sequencer, with up to twenty-four patterns synced to a DAW
  • Evolve and transform patterns by giving each sequencer track a unique tempo and step length, allowing the entire beat pattern to develop into new musical ideas over time
  • Create entire productions and then route the individual sequencer tracks to separate outputs for optimum mixing with the multi-out mode
Factory Library
  • Extensive library of samples to choose from for building custom kits
  • Explore sounds designed by top musicians and DJs, including BT, available royalty free for use in BreakTweaker or a sampler of choice
  • Wield dubstep power with multi-layered kicks and snares
  • Elicit cinematic drama with booms and hits, metals, cymbals and bells, as well as vocal breath one-shots
  • Eighty beat presets
Drum Synthesis
  • The Generator features two morphing wavetable oscillators capable of reproducing anything from the simplest to the most complex synthesizer sounds
  • Library of custom waveforms by BT and other top producers for use as building blocks
  • Choose from five wavetable synthesis modes – single, additive, ring modulation, amplitude modulation (AM), frequency modulation (FM)
  • Quadruple LFO and envelope modulation routing, perfect for adjusting pitch, wavetables, amplitude, and more
  • Start on advanced drum design with inbuilt generator presets that can be adjusted to taste
  • Custom-designed LFOs and envelopes provide for many creative modulation options
  • Each modulation source can manipulate the settings of any generator parameter
  • Modulate anything in the generator window with one of four LFOs or envelopes
  • Assign up to two modulators per parameter
  • Innovative wavetable LFO control, featuring exotic LFO shapes
  • Array of distortion effects, as well as vintage-modeled New York and Tokyo filters for shaping sounds
  • Custom-modeled, analog-style New York and Tokyo high-pass, band-pass, and low-pass filters
  • Dual-stage distortions inspired by the company's Trash 2 features algorithms such as warm, transistor, hard, digital, raw, and aliasing
  • Enhance width, add stereo space and create lush drum hits with individual chorus effects for every sequenced step via the MicroEdit engine
  • Discover feature narrows down the search for just the right drum sound
  • Powered by the company's MediaMined technology, Discover will analyze and display similar-sounding samples when browsing the factory library using musical analysis, not metadata
  • No more scrolling endlessly through sample lists when a drum sound is close but not perfect
  • Click "Discover" to instantly view intelligently-selected, similar-sounding drum hits from the BreakTweaker collection for quick auditioning
