Lyra Sextet Swarm

A 48 oscillator swarm created from a sextet of Lyras...

The story

The Lyra has to be my favourite synth of all time, why? Well because its bloody expensive and impossible to use. Ergo not many people use them…. AND because they’re ideal for sampling.

What I particularly like is getting the 8 oscillators to establish some kind of self cancelling unison. The only problem is in order to get that real multi oscillator swarm effect you’d ideally want to pan them….. and Lyras, well they’re mono. So I asked the lovely people at Soma Labs if they had any spare for us to borrow and lo and behold they sent 5!!!

So here is my Lyra Sextet 48 oscillator swarm. But keep an eye out on my channel and spitfire’s channels as I suspect this is not the last you’ve se! Enjoy! C x

  • Filthy... In a good way

    The sampling of the multiple Lyra 8's from Christian yet again defines what PB is about. Bringing a range of inspiring sounds to people and also making something accessible that would otherwise be fairly out of reach to a lot of people. The patches here don't differ a huge amount from each other, however there is plenty of ways to modify and warp the sound given that this runs in Logic Sampler. If you want those Gnarly detuned synth sounds with plenty of distortion along with it, look no further. This rocks!
