What is BreakTweaker?
BreakTweaker is the beat machine of the future. Powered by three distinct modules, the Sequencer, the Generator, and the MicroEdit Engine, it's a wildly creative rhythmic instrument that can be used with any DAW and MIDI controller. For instant gratification, get started with the diverse presets and content in the Factory Library, a showcase of BreakTweaker's breadth and sonic capabilities. When you want to get deeper, forge new sonic weaponry with BreakTweaker's paradise of tweaky controls and settings.
Assemble pattern-based beats in the Sequencer, which features six tracks for layering your sounds. The Sequencer can store up to 24 different step patterns, launchable via MIDI for on-the-fly remixing. Design beats that evolve over time with BreakTweaker's advanced isorhythmic step sequencing, which makes it possible for each track to have a unique tempo and step length. Ever heard a 7/8 rhythm against a massive 4/4 breakbeat? You can here.
Sculpt new drum sounds and textures with the Generator. This powerful drum synthesis module defines the sounds for each Sequencer track. The Generator supports morphing wavetable synthesis, one-shot sample loading, and hand-crafted noise tables, then is polished off with dual-stage distortions and vintage-modeled filters. Four LFOs with unique wavetable shapes, and four Envelopes allow vast modulation possibilities for almost every single Generator parameter. As a bonus, every Sequencer track supports up to three Generators for developing even deeper sonic complexity.
The MicroEdit Engine
Once you've perfected the ultimate set of drum sounds and sequenced your patterns, it's time for a whole new method of sound design. Enter the MicroEdit Engine. A "MicroEdit" is the division of a single step within your pattern into potentially thousands of slices. These slices can then be contoured and shaped to create harmonic, pitched, and rhythmic effects, resulting in new textures that add maximum ear candy to your ever-evolving beats. By pushing the limits of the brain's ability to perceive sound, the MicroEdit Engine blurs the line between rhythm and pitch, inspiring beats you've never heard before.
The Factory Library
Bringing sounds, patterns, and MicroEdits together into mind-boggling beats, the BreakTweaker Factory Library comes with over 80 global presets that are ready to kickstart your next project. The Factory Library also features over 2 GB of royalty-free sample content designed by electronic production pros. Specializing in a wide variety of percussive sounds, sample categories range from studio essentials like "Kick" and "Snare" to intriguing possibilities like "Glitch" and "Film." (If you already own BreakTweaker, don't forget to download it from your iZotope account.)
