Boston-based audio technology firm iZotope has released the Toys Sound Library for exclusive use with Iris, iZotope’s visual instrument. This quirky sound library plays on what iZotope calls “childhood nostalgia, evoking emotions ranging from joyful happiness to nightmarish terror.”
The sound library features one hundred professionally-designed patch presets, with names like Lunchbox Lead, Unicorn Tears, Peanut Butter Nap, Mood Ring, and Candy from Strangers.
Alternatively, tinkerers can manipulate some of Toys’ two hundred new sounds within Iris, including wooden blocks, laser guns, dollhouses, wind-up cars, squeaky toys and xylophones, to make their own sounds.
Other Iris Sound Libraries by iZotope include: Food, Glass, and Wood.
Izotope has released a free expansion pack for Stutter Edit – their performance-oriented sound mangler, developed in collaboration with BT.

Expansion 1 breathes fresh life into your Stutter Edit possibilities with 11 new preset banks containing over 250 new gestures. Introducing new preset bank categories like Glitch and Instruments, Expansion 1 comes fully loaded with gestures that can cut up your glitch tracks or re-invent your guitars, vocals, and synths.
