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).

iZotope releases Ozone 6 & Ozone 6 Advanced

iZotope Ozone 6

iZotope has released Ozone 6, the latest version of the creative mastering suite for Windows and Mac.

Elevate a good-sounding mix to a professional-sounding master with Ozone. iZotope’s critically acclaimed mastering software has all the tools you need to produce a full and polished sound.

With a striking new interface and a modern workflow, Ozone 6 both guides and inspires your creativity at every step.

The Advanced version of Ozone 6 includes a powerful new Dynamic EQ that lives and breathes with your music, as well as eight component plug-ins and a suite of configurable meters.

iZotope Ozone 6

Changes in Ozone 6

  • New Analog Hardware-modeled EQ filter shapes — Harness the sonic characteristics of classic EQ designs with new filter shapes including Baxandall Bass and Treble filters and API-style Proportional Q filters. Also new to Ozone 6 are Band Shelf filters and Resonant High and Low shelves.
  • Surgical Mode — All digital linear-phase filters are now matched to analog shapes; however, Surgical Mode allows you to utilize the precision of digital shapes for extreme cuts with minimum slope.
  • Variable EQ Phase Control — Digital linear-phase filters now feature per-node variable phase control for subtly adding phase delay to smooth out boosts that may sound harsh.
  • Seamless Bypass — Audition changes to your audio by gain-matching bypassed audio to your Ozone-processed signal for faster and more accurate A/B testing.
  • Customizable Signal Chain — Host your third-party VST/AU plug-ins in the standalone application. Then build your mastering signal chain from scratch or load a preset and add, remove, and swap the order of modules.
  • Module Gain Meters — Monitor gain-staging across processing modules with Module Gain Meters that instantly illustrate where you’re boosting and cutting gain across your signal chain.
  • Transient Emphasis — Preserve rhythmic detail while maximizing loudness with Transient Emphasis, which adds smart emphasis to transients by preserving sharp attacks.
  • Diode and Dual Triode Exciter Modes — Modeled after actual hardware circuitry, these Exciter modes offer vintage saturation from subtle warmth to more pronounced edge.
  • Stereoize Control — Add width to narrow or mono recordings without introducing phase artifacts.
  • Variable Knee Compression — Get precise control over compression characteristics by choosing between hard and soft compression.
  • Dynamics Detection Enhancements — Simulate smoother analog-style compression with both High-Pass and API Thrust-inspired Tilt filters. Use the True Envelope detection mode for RMS-style compression (flat frequency response and low distortion) triggered equally across the frequency spectrum.
  • New Presets — All newly designed presets utilize the improvements introduced in Ozone 6 including new Component Plug-in Presets with Ozone Advanced.
  • Standalone Application — Now available as both a plug-in and as a standalone application, Ozone 6 adds a number of forward-thinking features that simplify traditional mastering workflows, including:
    • Automatic color-coded waveform segmentation.
    • Tops/tails trims and fades with multiple shape types.
    • Third-party plug-in hosting (VST/AU Support).
    • Single/all-track export with iZotope SRC (sample rate conversion).
    • Auto-adjusted MBIT+ Dither at output.
    • Fully contained project folders.

Changes in Ozone 6 Advanced

  • Dynamic EQ Module — Ozone Advanced adds the new Dynamic EQ module, an EQ that lives and breathes with your music. Harness the precision of an equalizer with the musical ballistics of a compressor. Integrated with an intuitive workflow, these processors work in concert to create a valuable mastering tool that excels where traditional EQs and compressors fail.
  • Dynamic EQ Component Plug-in — Ozone 6 Advanced also includes a component Dynamic EQ plug-in for use throughout your audio editing software signal chain.

Ozone 6 is available for purchase for the introductory price of $199 USD through November 13th, 2014 (regular $249 USD). Ozone 6 Advanced is $599 USD (regular $999 USD).
