The BreakTweaker Story
With their creative forces combined, BT and iZotope bring you an instrument that will change the concept of rhythm, beat and drum programming as you know it.
A prodigious producer, technologist, and GRAMMY®-nominated composer, BT is renowned for inventing the "stutter edit" as a musical technique, as found in Stutter Edit, the first product release from BT and iZotope.
BT and iZotope are now back again with BreakTweaker, featuring BT's patented micro edit technology based on pioneering rhythmic sound design research. Fascinated by the brain's cognitive limits, BT has always been intrigued by the way we perceive rhythm, particularly the threshold point of where our ears perceive rhythm as pitch. The idea of exploring and exploiting this threshold inspired BreakTweaker, a tool where BT could finally realize rhythmic possibilities that he had once imagined but had never before been able to hear.
