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.
Resonant 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.
