If you're into glitch or any kind of creative beat processing, then you'll likely be familiar with iZotope's BreakTweaker. So, how can you make a good thing better? The Modern Grooves expansion pack.

Cambridge, MA (July 17, 2014) '" iZotope Inc., a leading audio technology company, and Black Octopus, creators of high-quality sounds for music production, have released Modern Grooves, a new expansion pack for iZotope's acclaimed drum sculpting and beat sequencing plug-in, BreakTweaker.

Featuring modern, clean, and crisp sounds with a dash of retro throwback, the expansion includes more than 300 sounds with 40 presets'"all designed to have a timeless feel and work well with a wide range of material. 

In an interview with iZotope , Black Octopus founder Toby Emerson describes his approach to creating Modern Grooves: 'I hope the pack will provide something for artists of all skill levels. Users can start with the presets and then tweak the sounds to create something original'¦ For people wanting to sketch ideas in the studio, I tried to lay out the patterns in a musically logical way'"someone could jam out full tracks on the fly just by switching between the patterns using a keyboard or MIDI controller.' 

Modern Grooves can be seen and heard:
