Lyra Pad

A multifaceted pad created from a Lyra 8....

The story

The “Lyra Pad” is an instrument created from sampling a bizarre Russian synth called “LYRA 8, Organismic Synthesizer”.

The “Lyra 8” is an unusual synth because it has no filter, envelopes or keyboard entry – just 8 oscillators and individual pitch knobs.

I through the “Lyra Pad” I wanted to explore the uniqueness of tone generated by the “Lyra 8” combined with traditional sampling/synthesis techniques such as envelopes, filtering and LFO’s.

I had great fun with this one, so, expect more instruments from me in the future.

Thanks and enjoy!
