A brief overview of the Iris 2 Software Synthesizer.
Patches, Samples & Oscillators Pt. 113:10
First, William shows us the patch selection tool and shows us around the presets section. William then shows us some of the different wave shapes and oscillators within Iris 2, and plays through some sounds so we can hear the synth in action. We then go through some of the samples that Iris 2 includes, and then William shows us the different modes we use to control the instrument.
Patches, Samples & Oscillators Pt. 25:46
In this video, William shows us how to create our patches and how to improve our own file management within Iris 2. William then shows us the Voice Mode and Midi Assign section. Then William goes through the Glide, Intensity and Output knob at the top.
Sample Pitch, Pan, Level & Keymaps2:59
Learn how to assign pitch, level, panning and key mapping for each tone in an Iris 2 sound.
The Spectrogram Section10:06
Learn how to use the spectrogram tools to extract exactly what you need sonically from each tone in an Iris 2 sound.
The Effects Section13:26
Learn about the 4 built-in effects processors and the different routing modes for the effects.
Control & Modulation Pt. 18:36
William shows us what an envelope is and it's different controls (ADSR), and helps us understand how to use an envelope in different ways by assigning them to different parameters. William shows us the different shapes and modes within the LFO section, and gives us some examples on how to assign them and start making interesting sounds.
Control & Modulation Pt. 25:04
William shows us Real Time Controllers, and how the assignment / modulation works within Iris 2. William then shows us how to many parameters with just one knob by using the Macro knobs, and gives us some different examples of interesting sounds by experimenting with the simple parameters.
Layout & Global Settings3:49
Learn about the different global options and the sizing and layout customization of Iris 2.
Using Iris 2 for Sound Design3:32
Learn how to use Iris 2 to manipulate basic sound sources into an evolving sound effect.

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!

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.

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
