Software Compatibility

Most software is compatible with both Mac and Windows computers, but check to make sure.

If you're using Pro Tools, AAX plug-ins (or RTAS for older versions) are what you need. Most other Mac DAWs support AU plug-ins. VST is compatible with a number of Mac and Windows programs. Be sure you choose plug-ins that work with your DAW!

  • A unique approach to sound design and synthesis
  • iZotope's acclaimed processing
  • Vast sound libary, with support for your own samples
A unique approach to sound design and synthesis

With iZotope's Iris 2, you can create synthesized sounds never before possible. Iris uses iZotope's acclaimed spectral processing (introduced in iZotope's RX audio restoration software), to allow you to isolate specific elements of a sound sample. The sound quality goes far beyond what you would get from using a bandpass filter to isolate frequency bands. You can, for example, take a sample of a piano, isolate just the overtones and harmonics, and layer that on top of the fundamental notes of a guitar, to create a unique hybrid instrument. And no matter what type of sound you create, you can add a suboscillator waveform to the sound to add extra impact and musicality.

iZotope's acclaimed processing

iZotope has built a firm reputation for creating world-class audio processing technology, and Iris leverages many features found in other iZotope products. The spectral processing found in Iris 2 was first used in iZotope's award-winning RX audio restoration software. Iris 1 also uses Radius RT for real-time pitch shifting, to preserve your sample's timing while transparently adjusting pitch. You even get a selection of iZotope's fantastic effects, including distortions, delays, filters, reverbs, and more. There are other sample-based synthesizers out there, but none of them give you the extraordinary sound-shaping possibilities that Iris offers.

Vast sound library, with support for your own samples

Iris comes with an 11GB library of samples, covering everything from animals and nature sounds to vocal sounds and power tools. There are a slew of instrument samples ready to play too, and Iris comes with hundreds of preset sounds created by top sound designers. But with the incredible sound-shaping power that Iris 2 provides, you'll love being able to import your own samples to create with. And thanks to the familiar synthesis controls featured in Iris 2, it's easy to take any sound sample and create something musical - and never heard before.

iZotope Iris 2 Virtual Synthesizer Plug-in Features:
  • Sample-based virtual synthesizer plug-in
  • Spectral processing lets you isolate specific components of a sound for further processing
  • Powerful modulation capabilities, with over 100 modulatable parameters
  • LFOs feature 20 different wavetable types for incredible animation potential
  • Six distince distortion filters from iZotope's Trash 2
  • Radius RT real-time pitch shifting sounds incredibly transparent, allowing extreme changes in pitch without affecting the timing of your original sample
  • Add a suboscillator to your creations for deeper, richer sounds
  • Layer up to four samples or oscillators to create unique sounds
  • 11GB sample library included
  • Hundreds of presets created by renowned sound designers
