In an interview with Fader, Arca gives a live presentation to the interviewee of how he produces music. This is his experience: "One afternoon, in something of a music journalist’s dream, he boots up his computer with the intention of giving me a live demonstration of his composition process. Using another program, called iZotope Iris, he takes the sound of a lawnmower, cuts a random geometric shape out of a graph of its composite frequencies, outputs a new sound that sounds like a choir of cooing lemmings.more
Starts talking about it at 28:32 "This bass sound is just like a layer that I made with iZotope Iris. I remember when I just got it. Basically iZotope stole a meme that I posted, and they posted it on their Twitter and to apologize they sent me all their plugins for free. That's when I got this and started messing around with it."more

Really cool name. And so it was on sale so I bought it and it comes with so many samples and sounds but is a bit of a CPU hog isn't it? I mean takes awhile to load in the DAW doesn't it? But for the sale price I couldn't beat it, could I?
Haven't had it that long, but I love the potential of this thing. It allows you to spectrally mask parts of whatever you feed it, or augment it. Very powerful potential.
Having this is like owning a paintbrush which can paint beautiful or mysterious worlds: with sound This truly opens gates to accessible, but amazing creation of natural pads and deep audial atmospheres.
Bought this cause I love Izotope and this looked interesting. It has a sampler, synth and spectral filtering in a very interesting interface using 4 samples slots and you can use tools like in photoshop to paint your sound out from...hard to explain but its cool and can lead to some very unique sounds.
Been curious about Iris 2 for a while so when it went on sale for only $49 bucks I kind of had to jump in. Haven't had it long yet but I started tweaking around and it's already clear this one is going to be a ton of fun. Zero buyers remorse thus far.
I do have to dig deeper before adding a comprehensive review. That might take a lil' bit since I really haven't been using any soft synths even my DAW much lately. Been all hardware and saving all of my songs in those pieces of hardware. Soon I will be ready to dump everything into Ableton for further processing and I imagine that's when I'll start digging in to Iris 2 and the like.
That said, it's already clear that this will get a lot of use. Likely more than most of my soft synths with a few exceptions.
It's intuitive, it's fun, fast, and it so far is killer for sound design – the latter being a big favorite here. Lots of control & fast for creating your own sounds.
I can get lost in this program for days ... Like n aural Maze that you don't particularly want to escape from ..... Well apart from to eat and sleep I guess . :) Fantastic
