The story

Sampled Soma Lyra-8 in stereo
Has 2 versions with fast and slow attack. This is my instrument FOR NATIVE INSTRUMENTS KONTAKT AND KONTAKT PLAYER 6.5.1 and up.

Welcome to the world of LYRA-8, a unique organic analog synthesizer created by Vlad Kreimer. “Organismic” means that LIRA uses some of the principles underlying living organisms. LIRA-8 is based on eight generators, which we call “voices”. Their design is not like traditional VCO synthesis. LYRA modules interact with each other in such a way that the overall behavior of the instrument is similar to communication with a living being.
Their design is not like traditional VCO synthesis. Instead of linear or logarithmic dependence on control voltage, LYRA’s voices work like tone generators in old organs. Therefore, we use the term “voice” instead of VCO. Non-linearity is very common in LIRA, which is deliberately emphasized by means of special circuit solutions.

  • Perfect digital analog

    This instrument has a perfect digital analog feel to it. Very uniquely made. Love the upfront-ness of the pad. Cuts through the mix so amazingly. Simple yet effective UI

  • Big phat sound

    Big phat sound. Not a lot to say about it, other than is a cool big phat sound.

  • Closest I'll get to one

    I'm always amazed when someone who has access to gear I can't afford, is willing to give me a taste of what it's like. And that's what it feels like to play this patch. It feels very live and sounds incredible.

    The 2 articulations are enough to play around with, but some more pitch range would have been nice (though I don't know if this is the limitation of the Lyra itself).

    The UI could at least show which articulation is selected, and the modwheel pre configured to the cutoff, but these are just minor nitpicks.

    Great job.

  • Beastly

    What a beast. I'm instantly transported into the world of Blade Runner with this digital/analog crossover sound.

    Love it.

    Edit: Just been playing some more and wow, it's literally a sound I've been eager to have in my library.

  • Moody and warm

    The moody, yet clean sound is really warm and nice.
    I wish the range could be bigger, and that you could see which articulation is currently being used.
