iZotope Release IRIS Spectral Synthesizer

Endless creative potential      17/04/12

Been itching to tell you about this, the brand new synthesizer  from iZotope. Iris - takes the spectral capabilities of the amazing RX2 spectral repair and analysis program and creates a four oscillator synthesizer - but its so much more.

Whats even more gratifying for us, is that the seeds of the idea were born during our very own Sonic TALK podcast, when the panel were discussing the amazing RX2 technology and how cool it would be to make a synth using it. Regular panelist  Dave Spiers became involved in creating that instrument and the result is IRIS.

IRIS will have you working on sound like you would images in Photoshop - its a really intuitive and inventive way to design and create playable keyboard patches. It comes with a 4GB library.

Available now at discounted price of  $149 (usually $249) as a digital download, there's also IRIS 2+ $199 (usually $299) which bundles two more libraries: WOOD and GLASS.

Better still, there is an unlimited 10day demo available for download HERE

 

KEY FEATURES

  • Discover what's inside any sound: Load audio into Iris and explore spectral details that a regular waveform locks away.
  • Highlight what intrigues you: Extract and isolate the most interesting sonic components with a full suite of visual selection tools.
  • Combine the unthinkable: Layer completely diverse sound sources into totally unique combinations... what do a tattoo needle and a swamp bird and a slot machine sound like together?
  • Stay musical: Rely on intelligent root note detection to help shape musical material from noise, ambient textures, soundscapes... even mistakes!
  • Enhance and invigorate your sound: Apply world-class iZotope reverbs, distortions and delays, then take advantage of extended synth features like amp envelopes and LFOs.
  • Get amazing sounds immediately: Spark your imagination with over 500 patches by world-class sound designers, or design your own with Iris's 4 GB library of diverse sound samples.
