I did, It was an impulse and I'm not really sure I"ll even use any of them except maybe trash :lol:

I've owned Trash2 before, but never really used it as much. Iris2 seemed interesting until I tried it, and it's not that inspiring as a sampler. Maybe I'll spend some more time with it..

Beattweaker and StutterEdit might be useful for some sound design stuff but I'll probably just make samples with them to mangle further. I'm just not really into the whole "sound like BT thing"

Don't need RX elements because I bought Standard (Which is great btw)


Nectar elements seems ok, I probably won't use it much because I like my custom chain of effects for vocals.

Same with Neutron and Ozone Elements. I was actually surprised that Izotopes MSRP for these was around $100 when you don't get that much.

Everything installed ok on Catalina! After I was done messing about testing them, I found that mostly everything uninstalled fine on catalina as well :hihi:

I bought Trash 2 and Breaktweaker as seperates because I had a lot of the other stuff. Really happy with them.

The thing with some of Izotope's stuff is that there's a bit of a learning curve in order to unlock their full potential.
On the surface they're fun and have some decent presets, but once you really get the workflow you can make them fit your style of music very well.

Stutter Edit is a good example of that. On the surface it's a fun little toy with instant gratification but not much long term usefulness. But once you are comfortable with how each module works and you can break it apart a bit and simplify things it becomes a very useful tool.

And the deal for the bundle is absolutely amazing if you don't have any of the stuff in it.
I bought Stutter Edit alone for that price about 4 years ago and I thought that was a great deal.

I didn't, but that's only because over the past year or so I picked up all (or most? not sure about Elements) of these individually (or as a pair: BT and StutterEdit). Iris2 I got for maybe $10, then another copy free that I'll give as a gift. Trash2 might've been free too. Oh, and there was a great price on VocalSynth… which I still haven't learnt properly.

Great deals but I've got all the elements, trash, and iris. I think I'm covered for Izotope stuff.
I like Iris, but find it challenging. Aside from the spectrogram filters, does it have only one master filter? I wish it had two and you could assign samples and effects to the filters separately. This would facilitate layering completely separate sounds. Distortion doesn't work well as a send effect. It would be nice to have one low drone with distortion and a separate smooth pad with different filter settings. Multi-point envelopes or LFOs would also improve it significantly. I like the way LFOs can modulate other LFOs... Also the spectrogram filters are killer.

Yip, I've all of a sudden got a lot of Izotope stuff... all from Plugin Boutique. I got the tonal balance bundle a couple of months ago, before that I got Iris, and with this deal I grabbed StutterEdit and RX7 Elements. I'll probably get BreakTweaker and Trash2 as well... those two I don't really need, but I'll probably get them. They're really just giving that stuff away over there.

I didn't think I needed Trash 2 either but it has been a revelation to me.
Really excellent plugin.

Breaktweaker I am still trying to wrap my head around.

Alone for Iris 2, i think it's a good deal:
(Readers choice favourite sampled VI) https://www.kvraudio.com/product/iris-2-by-izotope-inc
But there's not only a bundle deal, there's a iris 2 deal!
I bought a bundle only for RX7 Elements too.
Stutter Edit and BreakTweaker (Expanded with nice Samples!) are powerful tools! (Also seperate deals!)
So i bought the Stutter Edit Producer's Guide on PluBo too. I'ts also on sale.

The way I see it, Stutter Edit and BreakTweaker were powerful weapons that not everyone could afford or wanted to afford. A lot of love and creativity was put into them. They are grown-up tools, Iris BT and SE, you have to deal with, but then you know what you have.
Treat the tools as if you had paid the full price, then you understand what I mean ;).

Picked up Breaktweaker and Stutter edit, already have most of the other stuff. Trash 2 is very versatile.

Iris 2 hasn't really clicked for me yet; Form is nicer for resynthesis stuff and sample compositing is usually manageable with conventional filters in a lighter-CPU sampler.

Looking forwards to playing with Breaktweaker as I still slightly miss Ultrabeat from when I used Logic and maybe this will bring what I'm missing.

I've been using Tantra for glitch stuff but you don't always want it on a repeating sequence and the note-driven setup of stutter edit seems more fun than using lots of automation lanes.

Don't need the Elements and I already own everything, including BreakTweaker. But mine's not Expanded, so I might grab it just for those 4 additional banks.

Already have Trash2 and Iris2 as well as Ozone Standard 9. Stutter Edit and Breaktweaker don't really fit my style of music.

Picked up Neutron Elements 3 for $24 a couple of months ago so not overly upset about that. It's a great channel-strip plugin in its own right. Love the transient shaper/exciter, EQ learn and the compressor gives you great visual feedback. A steal at $9.

I voted last option but i’ll probably buy iris and trash.

I’ve been using breaktweaker since black friday bt/se bundle sale for 49$.
At 9$ its a nobrainer for the sample content alone.
The vintage machines extension has some great sequences tho.

Already had an amazing deal from iZotope on the Tonal Bundle (Ozone 9 Advanced, Neutron 3 Advanced and Nectar for $199 - which I got from owning Ozone Elements and Iris 2 and Trash 2 which I got for free from Plugin Boutique), so all that was left was Stutter Edit and BreakTweaker for 9 notes each - so I bought them!

As I love my Iris 2 and Trash 2, I switched off the reasonable part of my brain and got BT and SE. Problem, I can’t find a manual for Stutter Edit, the link opens a (local) web page which is obviously broken. Isn’t there a pdf manual around???
