Iris 2 is iZotope’s inspiring sample-based synthesizer with the power of a sampler, the flexibility of a traditional synth, and the fun of spectral

A virtual audio canvas
Iris 2 generates sound by playing back up to four audio files at once, allowing you to mix instrument samples, found sounds, and synthesizer waves.

Spectral filtering
Load up to four individual voices and "paint" filters using Iris 2's unique Spectral Filtering system.

Artistic modulation
Bring movement and expression to your sound with tremolo effects, vibratos, and filter sweeps.

Sample-based synthesis
Comprehensive, intuitive sound design control
Iris 2 creates unique synth textures using samples and/or oscillator-generated sounds—up to four of either. With global effects modules and individual filtering and envelope controls for each voice, Iris 2 gives you the tonal creativity to make music that is truly your own.


Iris 2’s Spectrogram not only displays the spectral makeup of your sample but also offers an array of sophisticated editing tools for easily manipulating your sample within the Spectrogram itself.

Five LFOs and Envelopes can be mapped to virtually any parameter within Iris 2, giving you the ability to shape the attack, duration, and tail of your synth sounds—plus much more!

Polish your sound with voice-specific or global creative effects. Use Send FX to process each sample individually, or apply Master FX to affect the entire patch for added character.

Harmonic excitement or total destruction
