I bought the bundle on a whim, and I can still refund it since i didn't register yet.

They feel, dated. Interfaces look kinda ancient and non-hiDPI (Which bothers me).
And the sound, especially of Break Tweaker, seems... dated as well.

I have no clue whether to keep them in case iZotope has something in store for them, but it wouldn't be the first time iZotope dropped something. (Spectron, phatmatik?) and Alloy... but I guess Alloy "transformed" into Neutron.

Well, Stutter Edit works on input material, so there are no quality issues here.

I agree that interface looks dated, but if you just use it as a preset box, it's very quick anyway.
Now I use Stutter Edit in every uptempo trance project I make. It's just working right every time.

If you use Stutter Edit correctly (and I think there is only one way) it’s mind blowing what it can do. Try running an entire mix, sans drums into it.

It takes some thinking to set it up though. SE doesn’t make any sound on its own. You need to route a MIDI input to it and play the effect via keyboard (or automation obviously).

You really never heard of billie eilish? I mean, come on!
I listen to less main-streamish things as well, but those are usually lacking production wise

I've heard of Billy Eyelash but no idea what he/she sings.

Nope, i already tried it. Doesn't fail validation, just doesn't show up as MIDI Controlled FX.

pretty cool music to be honest, refreshing in the sea of trash that is mainstream
