I bought both versions of Iris soon after release & will keep them for a very long time. Really like the hands-on.
Same here.

So is Iris 2 still a good tool to use even if it won't be updated anymore?
It's an interesting and unique 'tool', so I would say yes.

I am glad its free so anyone who doesn't have it can see how cool it is. I did pay for IRIS 1 and the update to IRIS 2 and am a bit sad they didn't support or update it....but it works fine.

i've tried iris, but currently i think it's "dated", so izotope gives it for free. it has a small gui, uses much cpu, it's not easy to install all of its sound libraries, etc...
imho other free ones like odin, dexed, surge are much better.

Not that I am disagreeing with you, but its a fairly recent product...still being advertised and sold for by iZotope 150 bucks...https://www.izotope.com/en/products/iris.html

PS- GUI is resizable (drag it) but not scalable

those are completely different kinds of synths (VA/FM vs spectral/sample-based)

Exactly! That's why a lot of us like IRIS, especially for free :wink:

But it's a sample player with effect processing and modulation, not a synth. Rather a nice tool for sound sculpting and design!

Sad that I bought it for $10 two months ago when it's completely free now but so far I really like it, all I need is more time for sound design!
Tricky-Loops has left KVR because of erratic moderators. Thanks for all amazing people who helped me and were good to me. Good luck!

'Sad'? :cry:
That's what you pay for a cheap a$$ quick lunch or a metro ticket in many parts of the world. I paid way more than that some years ago and don't regret a single cent ... just saying ...

Sadness is NOT that bad that I were lying beside my Iris 2, crying and regretting everything, thirsting for a $10 McDonalds meal :!:

Meal priced synths seem to be the new health care system. It prevents musicians from eating bad food, maybe even from smokin‘... Giving away great synths for free is killing - worse than rejecting a mask... :x
But there is a cure, donate a meal for every free synth you play...
