iZotope, Inc. of Cambridge, Massachusetts, a leading innovator in digital audio signal processing, has released the Iris+5 bundle comprised of Iris, iZotope?s ground-breaking visual instrument, and five complementary Sound Libraries?including the newest addition, Voice.

Iris is now bigger than ever before, and a must-have tool for sound designers and composers looking to evoke emotion through sonic experimentation. Iris inspires creative audio possibilities all through a powerful suite of spectral selection tools, flexible sample layering and manipulation, and a variety of effects and synth controls. Designers can find music in anything and everything by loading up their own samples or field recordings – and can even filter through over 500 patches and a 4 GB library of pre-included sounds.

To build on this impressive library, and to further develop new and intriguing source material, iZotope also offers five expansion Sound Libraries: Wood, Glass, Food, Toys, and now Voice – with growling leads, ethereal choirs, percussive and beatboxing effects, indie pop-style vocal pads, and much more. Together, Iris+5 includes over 1100 professionally-designed patches and over 5 GB of diverse audio content, all in one value-packed bundle.

Jack Côté, Product Manager at iZotope told BSN: "Iris+5 is an opportunity for us at iZotope to showcase Iris and its companion sound libraries as a whole. Each library represents a different way of thinking about sounds that are potentially very familiar, but in a way that really opens creative doors for musicians and sound designers seeking something new and different."

I have been a long-time user of iZotope?s RX2 audio repair and cleaning software, helping me visually clean up unwanted noise and clipping in production dialogue and sound effect capturing. I?m very excited to see and hear how Iris will improve my creative possibilities in sound design.

iZotope is offering $100 off their Iris+5 software for $249 USD through November 2, 2012. The bundle of all five Sound Libraries is also available for $129. Come visit them in San Francisco this weekend at AES Show 2012, stand 505, to see Iris in action
