Homegrown Sounds has launched Analog IR for iZotope Iris and Analog PS for Steinberg PadShop Pro.
Analog IR provides 110 Beautiful Pads for Izotope IRIS using the Analog Sample Collection as building blocks. Instruments are constructed using 1-3 Samples and take full advantage of the Spectral Features of IRIs and most have Aftertouch assigned to the Filter Cutoff. The intention was to provide musically useful Pads full of texture and movement. All 209 WAVs that form the Analog Sample collection are also available to explore when creating your own sounds.
Analog PS brings 200+ Pads to Padshop Pro. The sampled instruments in the Analog collection were designed on an Elektron Analog 4 containing mostly Musical Instruments with a few FX thrown in. There are 10 Different Presets for each of the 200 instruments in a different style, each style making use of Padshop’s synth engine, which adds up to 2000 Presets. All presets use Aftertouch and the Modulation Wheel for live manipulation of various parameters.
The soundsets are available for the introductory price of $20 USD each until July 7th, 2014 (regular $35 USD each).

iZotope has launched Resonant, a sound library for the Iris sample-based synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.
This month, we were inspired to create a new sound library geared towards musically useful sounds, rich in heavily resonant source material. The completely new Resonant Sound Library for Iris features a fresh palette of musical sounds that are incredibly playable and accessible.
Featuring bell, kalimba, tine, vibraphone, and other acoustically based instruments, Resonant offers unique, bright and clean sounds that we hope will mix perfectly in your next session! It’s not just traditional instruments: there are wild and unique sounds based on objects like metal cans, tubes and lampshades.
The sound library is on sale for $29 USD through May 29th, 2014 (regular $49 USD).
