If you’ve played with iZotope’s BreakTweaker, it’s hard to not be impressed with the abilities of this plug-in. However if you’ve played thru the presets, you’ll find 92 mostly EDM presets and a confusing layout of the 12 patterns in each preset. When I purchased this on the day it came out, I immediately realised this as being a plug-in that desperately needed a Power Pack!
Listen to the audio demos, watch the patch walkthru video (and other support videos) and you will be impressed with both BreakTweaker’s abilities and what YOU can do after adding this amazing library to your arsenal!
About the Programmer: For the first time ever, I hired 4 other programmers to work with me on this project. Ryeland Allison, Toby Pitman, Seth Norman and Carl Helder worked with me to create the patterns. Their resumes of clients they have worked with is impressive and inspiring (Hanz Zimmer, Sir Paul McCartney, James Newton Howard, TOOL, James Newton Howard, Triage, BT and many many more). The end results is a truly inspiring library of grooves exclusive to BreakTweaker that use MegaMacho Drum Samples, Factory samples and in some cases the Expansion sample libraries that you can purchase from iZotope (highly recommended).
Library Specifics: The majority of these 124 presets have 10 patterns and follow identical note layout standards. Patterns 1-3 are the groove (pattern 2 ALWAYS has no pitch and ready for writing music in ANY key). Patterns 4 – 6 are fills. Patterns 7 – 9 are No Kick, No Snare and No Kick or Snare patterns. Pattern #10 is generally a single snare hit so that you can do simpler drum fills. This makes working with these presets a lot of fun because you know what to expect when you play a note instead of having to learn what groove each pattern is before starting to write music. If you have worked with the factory voicing, you totally know what we’re talking about.
Modulation Wheel – all bets are off but make it EPIC whenever possible! The wheel can change synth parameters AND effects for truly exciting results in many cases. Play with the Mod Wheel on each patch to find out what it does!
910 Sound Generator Presets

NOTE: Make sure you have the additional 1.5Gb FACTORY SAMPLE CONTENT installed or you will get “Missing Samples” messages! If you still get error messages, REINSTALL this library again!
NOTE 2: Cinematic Textures and Vintage Machines Expansion Libraries also required for 16 of these 124 Presets.

I just picked this up last night. Since I also own Unify, I was pleasantly surprised that this Library is usable in Unify as well as BreakTweaker (must own BT to use the Library in Unify). The way the patterns are laid out turns BreakTweaker into an actual playable Instrument.
Thanks all at PlugIn Guru. This Library makes BreakTweaker fun to play.
I’d Give it 10 Stars …
Another fine library peaking interest in the
“older stuff ”
Just yesterday I purchased the Mega Macho Drums package.
I am really happy with it,the presets and samples sound beautiful,normally I don’t give comments on the products I buy
but I wanna give you credits for this huge package and all the love and work you put in to it to make musicians like me happy.
So thank you John…..
You & your team slayed it! I got an email advertising Breaktweaker on sale this holiday weekend. I watched the demo and thought it was cool..so I went for it. After setting it up, I decided to watch other videos for some deeper under the hood critiquing and stumbled on yours, man did I ever hit the motherload!
The factory sounds, plus the 4 add-ons are fine..but your programming, rhythm and sound choices are top notch.
You’re right, the second you press play the creative juices immediately start flowing! To round things out, I made a folder called ‘Songwriter’. Just 2 bar loops for writing. No fills or efx. Simple grooves like Billie Jean to current top ten beats & tempos..ala Drake, Rhiana, Post Malone, Kelly Clarkson, Jason Aldean ect. Anyway, you’ve assembled a rock solid awesome product..MegaMacho is a real winner! ~
