Spectral synthesis tools.

After infamous price tag of Atmogen and Aphex Twin promoted Metasynth, there was Alchemy (my favorite). Now Izotope Iris and, on the similar technology, Izotope RX came. And I must accept that Iris made me very happy with how it made some beautiful sounds from some really horrible recorded samples of mine that luckily I never deleted. This tool encouraged me to use my recorder more. Iris is great for any Ambient lover. I was a little skeptical about visual synthesis after the prime days of Metasynth. But now I'm backing it once again. Reason is that it does not start to control your ears, which I realized, and as Spectral Layers by Divide Frames is awaited which looks far more promising than any of these tools could do till now.
8-) I think soon spectral synthesis will have its own dedicated DAW. A workstation engine which is built in and around spectral synthesis engineering. At least I would love to see so. I started this post to know your opinion on this.

There was a DAW attached to the full version of Metasynth…(can’t remember the name).Personally,Metasynth changed the way i make music…It was such a different ‘medium’ and such huge possibilities…+I love the ‘correlation’ between image and sound.A game changer for me...
