Find music in everything
Unearth a world of sounds you've never heard before. Driven by iZotope's award-winning visual selection technology, iZotope Iris™ is a groundbreaking sample-based synthesizer that harnesses the power of both your eyes and your ears. Fuel your creativity with Iris's new spin on sound design: a "visual instrument" that's perfect for musical inspiration and sonic experimentation.
What is Iris?
Iris is an innovative sampling re-synthesizer that frees you to create sounds that could never before be produced. Start by dissecting up to three distinctive audio samples, using Irisʼs spectrogram display and easy selection tools to spotlight the most interesting spectral characteristics. Blend and layer your modiﬁed samples, then beef up their impact with a choice of suboscillator waveforms.
Still hungry for more? Add attitude and dimension to your creation by applying iZotopeʼs world-class effects and processors, including chorus, reverb, delay, distortions, and ﬁlters.
For the synth enthusiasts out there, never fear! Favorite synth features like amplitude envelopes, LFOs, root note detection and key mapping are all there for advanced musical control, as well as the all-new Radius®RT for real-time pitch-shifting while preserving your sample's timing.
Iris is ideal for anyone seeking a completely fresh take on sampling and synthesis, particularly sound designers and composers working on music and sound for ﬁlm, television and video games. With over 500 intensely creative patches available for immediate use, Iris is also perfect for any musician dreaming of diverse and compelling new sounds.
If your old sample libraries are looking dusty and tired, revive and rejuvenate the material by bringing it into Iris. Breathe new life into every audio ﬁle in your collection... blend the scream of raccoon with a howling wind and your favorite vintage synth pad for a sublime new texture. Take the sounds of a swarming bee hive, a rattling conveyor belt, and a sampled cello to create new musical ambiences. With Iris, you can find music in everything!
Evolve your sounds rapidly with Irisʼs diverse and intuitive visual selection tools. By drawing shapes in the Iris spectrogram, you can isolate speciﬁc audio frequencies within a sample and play them back immediately on your MIDI keyboard.
Iris makes it fun to experiment and manipulate your selections even further, with additional controls for zooming, rearranging, inverting, looping, reversing, and pitch-shifting.
As you make your spectral selections, energize and customize each sample you've layered (including the Sub waveform) with a dedicated set of synthesizer controls. For each sample, adjust envelope shaping, a tempo-synced LFO, and other parameters for tweaking the amplitude, modulation, and playback of your sound source. Adjust several parameters at once with Macro Controls, and get hands-on by mapping Iris controls to the knobs and buttons on your MIDI controller.
In addition, a global filter envelope and LFO let you manipulate your patch as a whole, granting uniﬁed movement to the overall sound of your patch.
In addition to spectral selection capabilities and analog-style synthesizer controls, Iris features a healthy dose of iZotope's award-winning DSP.
