in Iris that LFO will continue to oscillate." Can anyone confirm that there are no free-running LFOs in Iris 2? Ichiro Toda's Synth1 has this functionality. LFO in disco DSP OB-Xd is always free-running, which is great. Why not such advanced synthesizer from top shelf manufacturer?
here it is kind of erratic an inconsistent

with restart off
sometimes it seems to cycle freely
but then not...
somehow it seems to be conncted with the amp-env (E5) release
a keyboard re-hit within the release phase will not retrigger the lfo
but if the release is finished it retriggers...

seems to be a bug ?

also, with restart off the cutoff, which is a master cutoff is monophonic
(i.e.: not polyphonic)
but maybe that's intended behaviour...?

Because it is essentially abandonware . . . at least as far as bug fixes are concerned.

Note: I have no idea why the quote doesn't show up in a shaded box. My posts didn't do this before.

I think there is a list of outstanding Iris 2 bugs somewhere here on this KVR thread. Since iZotope stopped development any bugs are probably here to stay. The best strategy is likely to be to use what works (a lot), and be aware of what doesn't, so that you don't waste time on them.
Windows10; plugins from AAS, Ableton, AIR, Ample, Arturia, Cakewalk, Cherry, DiscoDSP, Fathom, IKM, Initial, iZotope, KV331, NI, PluginGuru, PreSonus, Surge, TAL, Tone2, Toontrack, Tracktion, u-he, UJAM, UVI, Vital, Waves, XLN ...

Thanks for your replies everyone. Using longer Release on the main amp envelope doesn't seem to work well, to keep LFO running without restarting. It quickly eats-up polyphony and adds unnecessary CPU cycles. It's good to know that any bugs old or new are not being addressed by iZotope. It's been over 6 years since the release of Iris 2, so I was only a little surprised with these news.
