iZotope Iris 2: The world is your instrument
iZotope, Inc. released the newest version of their sample-based synthesizer, Iris. Iris 2 is a visual instrument that combines the power of a sampler with the flexibility of a modular synth. New features include a robust modulation system, sample pools that can load both samples and classic oscillator waveforms, a completely redesigned interface with extensive visualizations and metering, enhanced effects and filters, and fresh patches to inspire creativity. Iris 2 is built so that new sounds can be discovered right out of the box, including soaring leads, growling basses, classic synths, and percussive effects. More than 350 patches with intuitive controls are included and endless combinations can be made by mixing a built-in collection of analog oscillator waveforms, an 11 GB sound library of samples, and users' own audio files. Dynamic tremolo effects, expressive vibratos, and radical filter sweeps can be achieved through up to five adjustable-curve ADSR envelopes, as well as five LFOs with dozens of morphing wavetable options. Iris 2 is rounded out with multiple effects, like eight distortions, a classic synth chorus, digital and analog delay options, and a warm plate reverb emulation. Iris 2 is available now, on sale for $199 US ($99 US upgrade) through December 11, 2014. After that date, Iris 2 will be available at the regular price of $299 US ($149 US upgrade). Iris 2 runs as a plug-in (32/64-bit Audio Units, VST, VST3, AAX, and RTAS) or as a standalone application in Windows and Mac OS X systems. [source]
