Want to establish your own signature vocal sound? With five powerful vocal engines onboard, VocalSynth 2 is what you need to get the job done. VocalSynth 2 has been completely redesigned, featuring more power, a revamped interface, and better CPU optimization than its predecessor. You also get tons of presets to help you get up and running fast. Manipulate a vocal’s nasality, vowel shapes, and formant using VocalSynth 2’s Biovox tool. Enhance your production with quality stompbox-style vocal effects. Three modes of operation give you an incredible level of flexibility. VocalSynth 2 features inter-plug-in communication with iZotope’s Neutron, Ozone, Tonal Balance Control, and more.
With an amazing updated modulation system and an outstanding library of patches and sample sounds, Iris 2 offers incredible sound design and synthesis potential. You can now modulate over 100 parameters for complex, animated sounds. Just like the original Iris, you can load your own sampled sounds and dissect them to create your own unique tones and sonic textures. And with its redesigned interface, extensive visual feedback, and stellar filters and effects, there’s a world of creativity waiting in Iris 2.
Trash 2 Expanded
Discover all-new ways to mangle your drums, synths, and other sources with Trash 2 — complete with the Classic Textures and Edge expansion libraries! An essential armament of the distortion arsenals of Nine Inch Nails and Korn, this improved sonic annihilator gives you stunning amp, cabinet, and stompbox modeling, and adds 20 new distortion algorithms, a customizable multiband waveshaper, a new Convolve module with 100 impulse responses, redesigned dual filters, and tons of presets. If you want to trash your audio, you need the right tools: Trash 2 with the Classic Textures and Edge packs.
If you’ve ever tried to achieve that “stutter” effect, you know it can take hours in the studio to nail it. Now, iZotope lets you do it in seconds. Stutter Edit is a playable multi-effect for both studio work and performance, and electronic musicians at Sweetwater were instantly hooked. Using a MIDI controller, you can achieve an array of colorful rhythmic effects for pro results. iZotope worked hard to take a musical, instrument-like approach to the effect, linking it to simple “gestures” you can play right from a MIDI controller. And it works with all major DAWs!
Create delay effects that blend seamlessly with your mix, with DDLY. Use the sensitivity control to determine the volume level at which the effect begins: as sounds get louder they’ll be sent through one delay path, while quieter material passes through the other (or can remain unaffected). It’s the perfect way to ensure that delay trails don’t cloud an expressive vocal passage or to add sonic excitement to the loudest notes of a performance. For delay effects that move with your mix, check out DDLY.
Static is boring — and Sweetwater has the antidote. Based on the Shepard Tone, Mobius Filter makes your audio rise and fall with a sensation of continual motion. A great alternative to standard phasing and flanging, Mobius Filter applies the infamous “sonic barber pole” auditory illusion to filters, as opposed to pitches, and depending on how you set it, the constantly ascending and descending filter sweeps can seem to defy logic. Whether you use it as an escalating ramp-up to a bridge or chorus or as a mind-blowing effect on vocals, guitars, drums, etc., Mobius Filter brings visceral impact to a track. There’s even an X-Y pad for real-time manipulation.
If you’ve ever devoted hours upon hours trying to re-create the sonic alchemy your favorite electronic musicians use to create wild and organic rhythmical effects, then BreakTweaker is going to blow your mind. Designed by BT, this unique plug-in instrument combines three powerful modules (the Sequencer, the Generator, and the MicroEdit Engine) to make creating wild and compelling grooves in your DAW freakishly easy. Whether you’re tapping into the goldmine of presets that come with the BreakTweaker’s Factory Library or coming up with entirely new creations of your own, you’re going to love this crazy virtual instrument. This expanded version of BreakTweaker also includes Vintage Machines Expansion, Cinematic Textures, BreakTweaker Modern Grooves by Black Octopus, and Kicks and Snares by BeatPort Sounds.
