As there currently is a delay in producing the next Iris subscription set, I have extended all your subscriptions by one month. The next set and more converted Iris 2 patches should be released in the first half of February.

Stay tuned...

Improvising with a single Iris patch from the upcoming subscription set no. 84, some Macro automation and modulation wheel action. Using a long drone sample made from a processed accordion drone in all three oscillators, S1 uses x-fading odd harmonics, S2 x-fading even harmonics, S3 all frequencies above 6kHz, there is volume Macro for each oscillator, slow amplitude modulation can be dialed in with slightly different LFO speeds in each osc so that the layering constantly morphs.

Here comes the release info for set 84:

Iris Subscription Set 84 uploaded on February 14th - 2018 containing 11 presets for Iris 1/2
(296/310 MB) including:


Cinema Pad
Multi-sampled synth pad layering two different pad sounds I made with Falcon/HALion, sampled at three pitches (playing in three oscillators running in non-retrigger mode). MW adds vibrato, Macro 2 (Y) controls LP cutoff/resonance, M1 (X) adds tempo-synced filter modulation. M3/4 control attack/release time, please check the Macro page for FX assignments.

In the Iris 2-version, S4 adds another multi-sample (root note C6 - C7 in Iris).

House Of Plenty
Bright textural sample layered in three oscillators, made by re-synthesizing a structural image with Metasynth and playing back the re-synthesized data with accordion samples, the further processing the result. S1 plays in Radius RT-mode, S2/3 play in non-retrigger mode and have their dedicated volume controls (Macros 3/4). MW adds fast amplitude modulation, M2 (Y) controls LP cutoff, M1 (X) adds distortion. M5/6 control amount of delay/chorus FX.

In the Iris 2-version, Macro 7 adds tempo-synced, square-shaped pitch modulation (via LFO 4 - +/- 1 octave when fully engaged), M8 adds re-triggering pan modulation (per voice, LFO5).

Layered FM Harmonics
A long textural sample with plenty of harmonics, made with an FM synth, the three oscillators highlight different segments with S2/3 running in non-retrigger mode and S3 having a dedicated volume control (Macro 3). MW adds fast, random pitch modulation, Macro s (Y) controls LP cutoff, M1 (X) adds fast, random filter modulation. M4 controls chorus FX mix, M5 controls amount of delay FX, M6 increases/decreases delay time/feedback.

In the Iris 2-version, Macro 7 adds noise-shaped pan modulation, M8 increases attack time (envelope 5 -> master gain).

Meditational Split
Layered in the upper half (S1/2 - non-retrigger mode, S2 has Macro 3 assigned for volume control) is a calm drone with plenty of overtone movement, rich FM/wavetable drone sound in the lower half (S3 non-retrigger mode), overlapping split point: C3 (C4 in Iris). MW introduces tempo-synced amplitude modulation (different LFO shape/speed per oscillator). Macro 2 (Y) controls HP filter cutoff, M1 (X) adds tempo-synced, square-shaped filter modulation. M4 controls delay FX mix, M5 increases attack time, M6 adds chorus FX, M7 controls chorus speed/depth, M8 controls amount of reverb FX.

In the Iris 2-version, aftertouch adds vibrato (LFO 4).

Mind Floater
Long tonal soundscape layered in three oscillators, made with Kaleidoscope and other things, using an abstract painting to shape the resonances. S2, looping the beginning of the sample, plays in Radius RT- mode, S1/3 in non-retrigger mode. S3 highlights only the very high frequency range and has a dedicated volume control (Macro 3). MW adds tempo-synced amplitude modulation in S1/2, S3 has permanent pan modulation applied. M2 (Y) controls LP cutoff, please check the Macro page for FX assignments.

In the Iris 2-version, S4 adds another sample (convoluted harp flageolets), Macro 8 controls volume of S4. M7 controls attack time (envelope 5 -> master gain).

Odd Even Accordion Drone
A long processed accordion drone, root note @ F#3 - all three oscillators use the same sample, S1 playing only odd harmonics, S2 even harmonics, S3 all frequencies above 6 kHz. All oscillators play in non-retrigger mode, each one has it’s dedicated volume control (Macros 3-5), slow amplitude modulation can be dialed in with M6, the three LFOs run at slightly different speeds. M7 tunes S3 up an octave (har right = normal tuning), S8 adds distortion. M1 controls delay/reverb mix, M2 controls LP cutoff mix, MW controls chorus FX mix.

Pendulum Split
Time-stretched and processed female vocal tremolo (minor third) in the upper half layered in S1/2 (Radius RT/non-retrigger mode), rich drone sound with some dissonances in the lower half (S3 – non-retrigger mode), overlapping split point: C3 (C4 in Iris). MW adds vibrato in S1/2, Macro 3 adds tempo-synced amplitude modulation in S3, M2 (Y) controls LP cutoff, M1 (X) adds tempo-synced filter modulation. M4-6 control amount of delay/flanger/distortion FX.

Poly Groover Split 110 BPM
Two sequences produced with Kaleidoscope and various synths at 110 BPM, split across the keyboard (overlapping split point: C3/C4 in Iris), running in Radius RT-mode. M1 (X) adds pan modulation, M2 (Y) engages peak filter modulation, M3 adds distortion. M4/5 control amount of delay/reverb FX, MW adds chorus FX. Please note that the tempo-synced delays will only match the speed of the sequences if 110 BPM is set in your DAW.

Space Strat
A slow electric guitar arpeggio (root E-minor), processed (spectral re-synthesis/granular re-synthesis), playing in Radius RT-mode in both oscillators, split across the keyboard (split point: C3 - C4 in Iris). MW adds tempo-synced amplitude modulation (ramp up), M2 (Y) controls LP cutoff, M1 (X) adds distortion. M3/4 control amount of chorus/delay FX, M5/6 are dedicated controls for attack time in each oscillator.

In the Iris 2-version, Macro 5 controls attack time for both oscillators (envelope 5 -> master gain), AT adds vibrato (LFO4, speed modulated by LFO5), M6 adds re-triggering pan modulation, M7 controls panning speed.

Spectral Cello Layers
Drone sound with plenty of harmonics derived from re-synthesized/wave-tabled cello harmonics, all oscillators use the same sample /S1/3 in non-retrigger mode) with S3 playing the full frequency range, looping backward/forward (use Macro 4 for volume control). MW adds tempo-synced, square-shaped pitch modulation in S1/2, S3 has pan modulation applied via Macro 6, control panning speed with M7. M1 (X) adds chorus FX, M2 (Y) controls HP filter cutoff/resonance. Glide is activated, control glide time with M8.

In the Iris 2-version, Macro 8 adds filter modulation, substituting the former glide time control (as glide time can not be modulated in Iris 2, so in this patch, glide is permanent). Also the spectral selection in S1 had to be re-drawn, as very narrow frequency selections made in Iris 1 don’t translate properly to Iris 2.

Texture And Drone Split
In the lower half (S1) mapped up to B2 (B3 in Iris) there is a drone sound made by audio-morphing a crystal bowl accent with a synth drone, in the upper half (S2/3) there is a tonal texture made by layering three spectrally re-synthesized vocal sounds, all oscillators play in non-retrigger mode. MW adds tempo-synced amplitude modulation, Macro 2 (Y) controls LP cutoff, M1 (X) adds tempo-synced, random filter modulation. M3 transposes S3, 1 octave in either direction (middle position = no transposition), please check the Macro page for FX/envelope assignments.

In the Iris 2-version, Macro 8 controls overall attack time (envelope 5 -> master gain).

----
I also converted ten more Iris 1 patches for Iris 2.

The subscription library now contains 725 Iris 1-patches (including 17+ GB of samples) and 392 Iris 2-patches (9+ GB).

I sent out the download links to all subscribers already.

Release notes for today's deployment of Iris 2 patches:

Ten Iris 2 patches were distributed on April 18th - 2018 (330 MB unzipped), 7 of them are converted Iris1-> Iris2-patches and there are three new patches which are Iris 2 only.

Crystal Bowl Meets Piano (Split) – Iris 2 only
Two long processed samples of an improvised duet (crystal bowl and grand piano), S1 (non-retrigger mode) and S2 share the same sample, S3 and S4 (Radius RT mode) the other sample, overlapping split point: C3 (C4 in Iris). MW controls distortion mix, Macro 1/2 introduce tempo-synced amplitude modulation for S1/2 – 3/4, M3 controls LP cutoff, M4 adds filter modulation (via LFO4, speed modulation via LFO5), M5/6 control phaser/delay mix, M7/8 control attack/release time.

Moscow Backstage
A field recording I made in the backstage area of a Moscow concert hall in 2011. Some talking, radiation from mobile phones, some impact noises. Different segments and spectral selections of the same sample are used in the 3 oscillators.MW introduces saturated distortion, Macro 1 for delay mix, M2 controls LP cutoff, M3 adds pitch modulation to S1, M4 for PM speed.
The pitch for S3 is fixed so it does not react to incoming Midi notes, it has a free running LFO assigned to pitch though, so each time you hit a key the pitch will be different.

In the Iris 2-version, Macro 5 controls pitch modulation speed in S3, M6 increases attack time in all three amplitude envelopes.

Mystery Bells
A periodic train bell texture in S1 and it’s electronic derivative playing in S2/3 in non-retrigger mode, Macro 3 controls the volume of the bell sound in S1. M2 introduces HP filter modulation, M2 controls modulation speed. The FX section is running in Send-mode, Macros 4-6 control the send levels. The Modwheel adds random pitch modulation to S2/3.

In the Iris 2-version, Macro 3 controls amount of pan modulation in S1 (instead of volume).

Mystic Bird Calls
The same long sample is used in oscillators 1+2, a field recording which I recorded in the deep woods on a sunny morning in early spring. The Sub-oscillator adds a noise-modulated sine wave to enhance the pitches of the mystical bird calls. Osc 1+2 run in Non-Retrigger mode, Glide is activated. The inverted Modwheel controls LP filter cutoff, Macros 1+2 control amount of Delay/Reverb FX. M 3+4 add pan modulation to Osc 1+2.

In the Iris 2-version, Macro 5 introduces noise-shaped pitch modulation in S1/2 (inverted polarity in S2).

Mystical Garden
A very long textural sample made with Endless Series and numerous other plugs is used in all three oscillators. The Modwheel adds noise-shaped pitch modulation to all samples, Macro 1 (x) controls amount of Delay FX, inverted M2 (y) controls LP cutoff, M3 adds Chorus FX, M4 controls the speed of the chorus. Take your time with this patch as the sound needs some time to evolve.

Nice Morning Split – Iris 2 only
Playing in the lower half layered in S3/4 is the processed sample of frame-drum accents (playing reversed-forward in S4), add re-triggering pan modulation with Macro 5. Playing in the upper half, layered in S1/2 (non retrigger-mode) is a long tonal soundscape, M3 adds slow re-triggering amplitude modulation (via LFO1/2). MW adds pitch modulation (LFO5) and chorus FX, M1/2 control attack/release time, M4 adds slow, tempo-synced LP filter modulation (via LFO4), Macros 6-8 control distortion/delay/reverb mix.

Perforated Convolution
Drone texture made by convoluting one of my Zebra patches using 3 different cello textures in 3 frequency bands with modulated crossover points as the impulse responses in Melda’s multiband convolution. The same sample is used in all 3 oscillators, each one playing a different segment and spectral aspect of it, S1 using a very dotted selection (control volume of S1 using Macro 3). S2/3 play in Non-Retrigger mode. The Modwheel controls chorus amount. Macros 1/2 (x/y) control LP filter cutoff and distortion mix. M4 controls release time in all oscillators, M5 controls delay mix, M6 introduces temposynced amplitude modulation, M7 controls reverb mix.

Perforated Piano Clone
Both oscillators use the sample of a processed physically modelled (British english) piano tone. With identical spectral selections, S2 is playing the sample in backwards/forwards loop-mode. MW adds Tube-distortion. Macros 1+2 (x/y) control amount of delay/reverb FX, M3 controls LP cutoff, M4 adds pitch modulation to S1, S2 has a slow LFO assigned to pan position.

In the Iris 2-version, S3/4 add another sample - hitting a string of a prepared piano with a soft mallet, Radius RT-mode in S3. playing revered-forward in S4 - Macro 5 adds re-triggering pan modulation in S3/4 (inverted polarity in S4).

Permutated Nightingale
A segment of a field recording (with the singing pauses cut out) of a lovely nightingale singing outside my studio window, processed/destroyed with Permut8. The 3 oscs are layered and all play different segments and spectral selections of the same long sample. S1+2 are running in Non-Retrigger mode. The Modwheel shifts the oscillator balance towards S3. S1+2 have pan modulation applied, so the birds fly around the stereo field. Macro 1 (x) adds Delay FX, M2 is assigned to various delay parameters. M3 adds random pitch modulation to S3. M4 adds a strange reverb ambience.

Prepared Piano Arp Split – Iris 2 only
All four oscillators use the same sample, plucking the strings of a prepared piano with a plectrum, time-stretched and further processed. S1/2 are layered up to C3 (C4 in Iris), S3/4 are layered from C3 upwards. MW adds pitch modulation (via LFO3) and adds chorus FX, Macros 1/2 control attack/release time, M3 adds slow amplitude/pan modulation in S1/2, M4 tunes S3 up an octave, M5/6 control delay/reverb mix, M7 adds re-triggering pan modulation in S4, M8 decreases LP cutoff and adds distortion.

725 Iris 1-patches (with 17+ GB of samples) and 422 Iris 2-patches (with 10+ GB of samples) are currently available in the subscription library.

Re: Iris subscription thread patchpool - fresh Iris 2 sounds

Post Tue May 29, 2018 3:13 am

Release info for the deployment of Iris 2 sounds in May 2018:
Here comes the next deployment of Iris 2 patches (439.2 MB unzipped) with 4 new and 11 converted presets. The descriptions below are also included in the the updated total list included in the download folder. As of April 2018 I’ve decided to only create Iris 2 patches in the future, as the parallel development of sounds for both Iris version is just much too time-consuming.
Patches:

Alien Clockwork Split (Iris 2 only)
A dense, dissonant, 3+ minute long texture with a percussive attack made with Sound Particles using a plethora of different soundscapes as audio input. The lower half of the keyboard mapped up to C3 (C4 in Iris) layers the percussive attack (S1, Radius RT-mode) with a longer segment S2, non-retrigger mode), the upper half mapped from C3 (C4) upwards layers two other longer segments (S3 playing in non-retrigger mode). ENV1 modulates the amount of various tempo-synced modulations. Macro 1 controls LP cutoff, M2 adds tempo-synced filter modulation, M3/4 control attack/release time (ENV5). M5-8 control distortion/delay/phaser FX.

Dispersed Bells Split (Iris 2 only)
Layered in S1/2 in the lower keyboard half is a processed/tonalized bell/gong texture, mapped up to C4 (C5 in Iris), in the upper half (C4 upwards) the processed bells without the tonal resonances are layered in S3/4. Macro 1 introduces amplitude modulation (inverted polarity in S2/4), M2 controls modulation speed, M3 adds re-triggering pan modulation (inverted polarity in S2/4), M4 controls panning speed. M5/6 control chorus/delay mix, M7 adds re-triggering HP filter/resonance modulation, M8 controls reverb mix. MW adds tempo-synced pitch modulation (LFO4 assigned to fine-tuning).

Frozen Field Split
This patch uses a sample with an excerpt of a live-performance of one of my orchestral works. S1 - mapped from C3 (C4 in Iris) upwards, root note at D#5 (D#6) - has vary narrow spectral selection of the first, calm half of the sample, the segment in S2 begins with a dark brass line, the main theme of this piece and then dissolves into spectral-ness. Both samples play in non-retrigger mode. The x/y-pad (M1+2) controls distortion amount/tone, MW reduces LP filter cutoff. Add tempo-synced amplitude modulation to each sample individually using Macros 3+4. M 5+6 control amount of delay/reverb FX.

Ghost Trains
S1+2 use the same sample of a recording I made in a Russian train during my trip to Russia for a documentary film in 2011, where we travelled for 3 weeks in a (horrible stinking) train through all of Russia, an unforgettable experience. These samples are from my SoundPack Trains and Subways.
S1 plays the main train sound and S2 plays a snippet of a train guard speaking through a walkie talkie.
In S3 there is another sample of a freight train passing by very fast which I recorded at an open air train station in Germany.
S2 doesn't follow pitch, it has a LFO assigned to it's pitch so the frequency is constantly changing.
MW adds tempo-synced pitch modulation to the train in S1, Macros 1+2 control distortion and delay amount.

In the Iris 2-version, S4 adds a sample of two passing trains with doppler FX, control volume with Macro 8.

Gold Rain
Two mallet accents processed by a granulator with the grains quantized to a pentatonic scale, sampled at different root notes (C3/C5) spilt across the keyboard. S1 is mapped from C0 - C4, S2/3 are layered from C4 (C5) to C7 (C8) with S3 running in non-retrigger mode and having it’s dedicated volume control (Macro 3). MW introduces random pitch modulation in S1/2 and noise-shaped pitch modulation in S3. Macro 2 controls LP cutoff, M1 introduces fast random filter modulation. M4 - 6 control amount of reverb/delay/chorus FX.

In the Iris 2-version, Macro 7 adds tempo-synced amplitude modulation in S3.

Haunted Split
A multiband convolution soundscape layered in S1/2 in the upper half (with dedicated volume controls for each layer - Macros 3/4) meets a kaleidoscoped wavetable drone in the lower register, the sound overlap between C2 - C3 (C3 - C4 in Iris), all samples are playing in non-retrigger-mode. MW decreases LP filter cutoff and adds distortion, Glide is activated. M5 introduces pitch modulation in S1/2 (noise/random), M6 adds tempo-synced, square-shaped pitch modulation to S3, M1/2 control amount of delay/chorus FX.

In the Iris 2-version, engaging the modulation wheel will also add a bit of re-triggering LP filter modulation (via LFO5), Macro 7 adds re-triggering pan modulation in S1/2 (per voice) via LFO4, inverted polarity in S2.

Landing Zone Split
Two tonal, spectral drones/soundscapes of similar kinds playing in non-retrigger mode in S1/2, overlapping split point: C3 (C4 in Iris). MW introduces tempo-synced amplitude modulation (ramp up/down, different speeds in S1/2), M2 controls LP filter cutoff, M1 adds tempo-synced filter modulation. Please check the Macro page for more FX controls.

In the Iris 2-version, Macro 7 adds vibrato (via LFO3 assigned to fine-tune, speed modulation via LFO4).

Light Ladder
Mellow tonal soundscape, the same sample is used in both oscillators (non-retriggering), S2 playing backward/forward. Add pan modulation to S2 with Macro 3, control panning speed with M4. MW adds tempo-synced, square-shaped pitch modulation in S1, -/+ 1 octave with the wheel fully engaged. Decrease LP filter cutoff with M2 (Y), add filter modulation with M1 (X). Check the Macro page for FX assignments.

In the Iris 2-version, aftertouch adds vibrato.

Mary’s Dream
A wavetable drone in S1 in the lower register mapped between C0 - C3 (C1 - C4 in iris), playing in non-retrigger-mode, meets a pentatonic multi-band convolution soundscape layered in S2/3, mapped from C3 - C7 (C4 - C8). S3 only plays the very high frequency band, control it’s volume with Macro 3. MW introduces tempo-synced pan modulation in S1, random pitch modulation in S2, and fast amplitude modulation in S3. Check the Macro page for more FX controls.

In the Iris 2-version, Macro 6 adds re-triggering pan modulation in S2/3 (via LFO4, inverted polarity in S3).

Mellow Pad
Processed table bell texture, S1+2 play different aspects of the same sample, both samples play in non-retrigger mode. The global bandpass filter is LFO-controlled and the cutoff is also modulated by key follow. With each key you press the Filter LFO is restarted which causes some glitches and subtle clicks which I like (only affects Iris 1). If you don't like that, switch of the LFO for filter cutoff. MW adds vibrato in S1. Macro 1 controls delay amount, M3 controls the LFO speed for the filter modulation.

In the Iris 2-version, Macro 2 adds distortion, M4 controls chorus mix, M5 controls release time.

New Age Morph
Audio-morphing several electronic sounds with each other, All 3 oscillators use the same long sample, highlighting different segments, S2 has it’s dedicated volume control (Macro 3) playing a very dotted selection running in Radius RT-mode, S1/3 running in non-retrigger mode. Macro 4 adds pan modulation to S3, control panning speed with M5. control volume level with M6. Check the Macro page for filter and FX controls.

In the Iris 2-version, MW also adds tempo-synced amplitude modulation in S3 (via LFO4).

TamTam Scrapes
The sample of a Tamtam (gong) scraped with a drumstick is used in both oscillators, S2 playing the inverted frequency selection of S1 and tuned down an octave, both oscillators are running in non-retrigger mode. The volume of S2 is assigned to Macro 3. MW adds noise-shaped pitch modulation. M1+2 (x/y) control amount/speed of chorus FX, M4 adds delay, M5 controls delay time (tweak the knob for interesting pitch modulation effects), M6 adds reverb.

In the Iris 2-version, aftertouch adds fast vibrato (via LFO4), M7 controls release time (ENV5), M8 adds re-triggering pan modulation (per voice - via LFO3).

Temple Synth
Singing temple nuns recorded in Taipei re-synthesized with Metasynth are playing in S1+3, S2 plays a synth drone made with Reaktor.
Envelope and LFO-controlled Bandpass filter, MW increases LFO-speed of the filter modulation. Macros 1-3 control FX amount.

In the Iris 2-version, aftertouch adds vibrato, Macro 4 increases the BP filter cutoff, M5 controls amount of re-triggering pan modulation (per voice).

Trombone Animal Split (Iris 2 only)
The involved sample was made by processing various trombone sounds played with different mutes (plunger/wahwah) with Sound Particles. Both oscillators use the same sample, running in Radius RT mode, overlapping split point: C4 (C5 in Iris). S2 plays the sample backwards/forwards and uses a different frequency selection. MW adds noise-shaped pitch modulation (inverted polarity in S2), Macros 1-3 control distortion/flanger/delay FX, M4 introduces re-triggering LP filter modulation, M5 controls reverb mix, M6 adds re-triggering pan modulation (per voice).
