Agree! Already have those too.

Check out the 65 free pad sounds in Gratis IR from Homegrown Sounds: https://hgsounds.com/product/gratis-ir-for-iris/

The wav files are also available for your own use. I believe that they sampled various synths to get the wav files used, so the presets sound rather "synthy", but in an Iris way.

At $29 it seemed too good to pass up after hearing the demos.

Glad I checked it out though, as I noticed that Trash is on sale at $29 too - holy crap that's a fantastic deal too - Trash is an amazing sound shaping tool.
Sweet child in time...

I'm loving this thing, sure kontakt has all this and more but it's all hidden away.
I love the fact that all sound shaping and fx is on one page.

I have been asking for macro style controls for kontakt forever so this fills the gap.

Sure no time stretching is a shame but who can't do that in a flash.

Most definitely the best £20 I have ever spent.

Still $29 (and less with code GROUP) here: https://www.jrrshop.com/izotope-iris
Makes it $41 and some change for the Iris2/Trash bundle using that code.

Just snatched this. It's a lovely, intuitive tool and a steal for $29.

Like others have pointed out, some of Izotopes products have long stretches between updates. Trash is a good example. But some of their plugs have gone away forever. Any other Spectron purchasers out there? :hihi:

I learned on this thread that Breatkweaker is no longer being developed. Ironically I bought Breaktweaker to replace Tremor which has been discontinued, so I guess that's replacing a "no longer supported" with a "no longer being developed." Going to count that one as an upgrade.

It wasn't a group buy, just a temporary sale. The do them few times a year. Sign up for the iZotope email list and although you'll get emails you're not interested in, you'll get the heads up on the next sale, maybe Easter or Memorial Day.

Those who picked up Iris 2 during the recent sale or before can now add some great sounds esp Pads during the Circular Group Buy at HomeGrown Sounds

My favourite is Starburst, the demo is here:

Group Buy ends soon
There are some awesome other sounds and free Gratis sounds for Iris 2 included in the Bonus section of the Circular Group Buy at hgsounds.com
