iZotope releases Iris 2 sample-based synthesizer

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Nov 20, 2014 - comment 0 comments

iZotope has released Iris 2, a sample-based synthesizer instrument that combines the power of a sampler with the flexibility of a modular synth.

iZotope Iris 2

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, so that users can easily produce and perform music that they have tweaked and customized.

“After listening carefully to feedback from hundreds of musicians, producers, and sound designers, it became clear that Iris is a one-of-a-kind tool in their craft,” says iZotope Product Manager Bradford Swanson. “We’ve designed Iris 2 to help inspire musicians with new possibilities and sounds that are easy to access and tweak, but still totally unique.”

The core of Iris 2’s creative engine is the ability to layer samples. 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.

iZotope’s award-winning spectral filtering technology contributes to the Iris experience. Users can visualize and edit their sound with incredible precision by drawing, selecting, and isolating sonic components from each sample layer.

Iris 2 for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) is available for purchase for the introductory price of $199 USD ($99 USD upgrade) through December 11th, 2014 (regular $299 USD/$149 USD upgrade).

Sinevibes Singularity

Sinevibes has released version 1.0.1 of its Singularity multi-effected delay effect plug-in for Mac.

It starts with a tempo-synchronised feedback delay line capable of true stereo panning, and its tail is then sent into three extremely capable effect units connected in series.

Each of these processors includes a rich selection of different algorithms: from filters, phasers and choruses to digital- and analog-style distortion, frequency shifter and granulator.

Changes in Singularity v1.0.1

  • New presets with multiple reverb simulations.
  • Support for mono-to-stereo channel configuration.
  • All buffers are now being cleared before processing starts or restarts.
  • There is now no parameter pick-up slew before processing starts or restarts.
  • Fixed frequency shifter and barber-pole parameter quantisation issue.
  • Fixed rare clicks occurring with shortest delay times.

Singularity for Mac (AU) is available for purchase for $39 USD.
