VST stutter / "glitch" plugin (for Mac)
I come from a rock background, but I've been trying my hand at electronic music lately. I feel like I'm lacking a bit in the vocal-effects department. Some of the artists I enjoy listening to (ex. Celldweller - http://www.celldweller.com/) have a lot of subtle vocal processing (chopping/glicthing/stuttering) that I think lends itself very well to their style of music. I haven't found a good way of doing that yet. Perhaps the answer is simply "do it by hand, you lazy bastard" but I was wondering if there were any good plug-ins for this sort of thing?

For instance, I've been using Effectrix(http://www.sugar-bytes.de/content/products/Effectrix/index.php) for a while now, and I like it for the most part, but it doesn't quite do all I'm looking for. Are there others like it?

A friend of mine here on BandAmp recent mentioned ReCycle (http://www.propellerheads.se/products/recycle/) and pHATmatik (http://www.izotope.com/products/audio/phatmatik/), but the ReCycle demo I downloaded feels horribly slow and cumbersome and the pHATmatik demo download link is broken (*d'oh!*).

If you guys have any tips, then thanks in advance. I spent some time searching forums earlier today but mostly came up with old posts (early 2000s) so I assume that I'm using the wrong search keywords.

Update: One of the guys on Reddit's "WeAreTheMusicMakers" forum came through big on this one.

StutterEdit: http://www.izotope.com/products/audio/stutteredit/

I've only been playing around with this for about an hour but I can tell right away that this is what I wanted. Similar to Effectrix in the wide range of sounds it can produce, but unlike Effectrix's clunky UI StutterEdit is controlled by MIDI. Each note maps to an effect. Anyway, check out the demo if you're looking for this type of thing. I'm digging it so far.

Excuse me for being so stubborn : http://mac.brothersoft.com/recycle-download.html    
Or if your into torrents : http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/4078198/Recycle_2.1.2_Mac

 

Are you looking specifically for an 'audio stutter editor'? because a program like ReCycle does SO MUCH MORE !

I downloaded the ReCycle demo yesterday and tried to play with it, but for some reason it ran incredibly slow on my mac. It was playing the sample audio at about 1/2 speed. (Not to mention that the demo version only allows you to work with a couple of pre-recorded sounds, not bring in your own.) But I should give it another shot because of how many people recommended it! So I wil.

I'm just super excited about playing with StutterEdit. You should give it a try too Kings! 10-day fully functional trial download is offered on their website.

That YouTube video makes it seem way too easy...

...... COOL, I don't have to download anything special to s-s-s-s-stutter!

I'm definitely going to try it... When I have a break from school!
