Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Now I look more confidently at Iris 2 Now I will create analog patches. After all, Iris 2 is a lot of cool samples from hardware

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by from A bit rambling, but a good demo I'm new to Iris 2, so this was OK. Exposed me to some of the novel features, however much of the tutorial was too much detail about the features that are common to all synths (ADSR, LFO, Filters) and some of the more tricky features were just quickly demonstrated. Sound mix had voiceover too high (or conversely, synth output too low).

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Awesome Kick Start to Iris 2 I got Iris 2 and several other sampler and synths "just in case" but not really the time to jump in the many functions Finally I took time to check out some more tutorials and this one just helped me massively to understand the power of Iris 2 but also to understand all the knobs for other synth software I use, thumbs up, highly recommend Examples are good in this tutorial and the guide is amazing ! No further questions haha

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from i HAVEN'T PURCHASED ANYTHING FROM IZOTOPE THAT HASN'T IMPRESSED ME. THE EASE OF USE, THE FUNCTIONALITY, THE DEPTH AND THE OVERWHELMING POSSIBILITIES. I THINK THE EASIEST WAY TO PUT THIS IS THAT EVERYTHING THEY TOUCH IS GOLDEN, AMAZING, JUST UNBELEVABLE. SIMPLY THE BEST RECORDING SOFTWARE, SYNTHS AND PROCESSORS SERVE NO PURPOSE IF THEY AREN'T REALLY WELL THOUGHT OUT. IZOTOPE IS WELL THOUGHT OUT AND THESE TUTORIALS HELP REACH THE DEPTH THAT IZOTOPE OFFERS IN EACH AND EVERY PRODUCT.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Time to buy! I've been looking at Iris 2 as a potential buy. After walking through the various features and abilities I am ready to pull the trigger.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Very thorough overview. This video does a really good job of introducing the Viewer to Iris 2, but it ALSO is a great video for folks that are new to software synthesis in general, because it includes a lot of general information about LFOs, envelopes, filters, modulation assignments and other basic concepts in synthesis and sampling. Highly recommended!

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Good tutorial and tutor. Been interested in getting this synth for a while, mainly for some ambient sound design stuff. This tutorial explained the ins and outs of it for me. The tutor is particularly good, not speaking too fast or slow and giving just the right depth of information. As opposed to a lot of other tutorials that seem too shallow, or give me too much at once that I can't follow easily. Will be checking out his other tutorials.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Iris 2 Explained As a technical lecturer myself I appreciate Groove £'s measured and informed approach to the tutorials I also like to be able to use it on my IPAD rather than my desktop. So it is useful to be able to stream it on the IPAD
