Consider having to instances of Iris load with six identical samples in each of the slots then modulating the heck of of each to get different spectral thinks happening with different pan curvers pitch bends, frequency savy compression effects and you probably will never get to the bottom of whats possible with just a few well chosen samples with braod spectral content.
I have Numerology that can pretty well do the same so right now I'm working with a bout twelve Lfo's modulating various parameters, like pan Lfo amount and speed. On one Instance of Iris.
But again all this modulation is more post production on an almost finished sound materiel. The core activity in Iris is getting good material to work worth and the Sonogram painting..
Sonogram painting can actually also be used to create pseudo Lfo's directly.
I admire your enthusiasm TwoToneshuzz, but modulating the pan LFO would hardly be considered blowing the lid off the limitations of Iris. I dug it out again after these posts and IMO the limitations remain, and painfully so.
I was hoping that maybe the sample start points, sample offset or loop points were accessible to external modulation. That would have fixed some of the limitations, but they are not available, which in my book is an even less excusable omission than not allowing their modulation directly in the VST (besides, amp, pitch or pan? I mean why did they even bother?).
It's all good though, Iris does what it does, but you mentioned not having any other spectral tools at this point, I really suggest you try some of them. Although if you're so blown away by the spectral possibilities of Iris already, this recommendation may not be entirely safe.
