Homegrown Sounds has announced the release of Iris Collection Vol 1, which compiles their first five Iris releases into a single product. It comes with 550 presets for both v1 and v2 of iZotope Iris and over 900 Samples. For users who own at least one of the included releases there is an upgrade option offered on the Downloads Page for a limited time.
Instruments are constructed using 1-3 samples and take full advantage of the spectral features of Iris and most have Aftertouch assigned to the Filter Cutoff. The intention was to provide musically useful pads full of texture and movement. All 919 included WAVs are also available to explore when creating your own instruments, or in other music products that can use them.
The following releases are included:
- Analog IR - Analog IR provides 110 Beautiful Pads for iZotope Iris using samples that were designed using an Elektron Analog 4.
- Awakenings IR - The sounds for Awakenings were created using combinations of many synths to create an interesting and varied collection of samples.
- Dissonance IR - The intention with Dissonance was to represent Alien worlds and the darkest corners of the universe, although there is some occasional beauty.
- Lumin IR - The Lumin Samples were crafted using u-he Bazille and Waldorf Largo for sound design.
- Starburst IR - The Starburst Samples were designed using an Access Virus TI Synthesizer.
Iris Collection Vol 1 costs $149 but has an introductory price of $99 which offers significant saving compared to buying the titles individually. All individual Iris releases are also reduced throughout this same period.
