iZotope Resonant Sound Library Features Kalimba, Vibraphone… and Lampshades

ResonantAudio technology company iZotope has released its eighth sound library for Iris, its award-winning software synth built on spectral selection technology.

The new Iris library, called Resonant, features a “fresh palette” of playable, acoustically-inspired patches built around bell, glockenspiel, kalimba and vibraphone-like samples. Along with more traditional musical instruments, Resonant also boasts unusual sounds based on cans, tubes and lampshades. Resonant has pitched percussion sources made of a wide variety of materials, including metal, wood, and plastic.

iZotope_IrisCookbook_web-231x300Resonant is available as a separate library, or as part of the new Iris+8 bundle, which includes all of the sound libraries created exclusively for Iris: Wood, Glass, Food, Toys, Voice, Modular, Altered, and now, Resonant.

In support of Iris Resonant and Iris+8, iZotope has also expanded its “Iris Cookbook”, right, to include brand new recipes with step-by-step instructions and example presets. Aimed at helping users get the most out of Iris, this guide offers pro tips and tricks to help you get that perfect sound.

  1. The Iris synth is a complete beaut. It’s also one of the very few synths that doesn’t need a sound library. Honestly…put anything into it and get a great pad, bass etc. in no time. You’d be better off saving that money for a field recorder.
