Unleash your musical creativity with the Soma Lyra-8, an avant-garde organismic desktop analogue synthesizer that redefines the boundaries of sound generation. With eight mesmerizing voices, integrated delay distortion, and modulation wizardry, this instrument transcends the ordinary and takes you on an extraordinary sonic journey.

Organic Harmony in Your Hands

The Lyra-8's unique design mirrors the intricate structures found in nature, allowing you to weave complex, non-hierarchical relationships between its modules. Just as living creatures exhibit non-linear connections in their organs, the Lyra-8 invites you to sculpt sound in ways that defy convention, from ethereal chords to mesmerizing FM textures. It's the perfect tool for crafting ambient landscapes or unleashing a storm of sonic chaos with feedback and distortion.

Responsive and Expressive

Each of the eight voices has touch-sensitive envelopes triggered by metallic pads. A convenient Hold function keeps your AD connections intact, freeing your hands for a more tactile tonal experience. Fine-tune your sonic artistry with the Fast control, adding an extra layer of expressiveness to your compositions.

Limitless Modulation

Dive deeper into sound manipulation with External Control Voltage (CV) and the Hyper Low-Frequency Oscillator (LFO). These versatile tools allow you to chart your modulation course, with modulation depth easily adjustable through oscillators. Create shimmering, vibrant effects or push the boundaries of sonic experimentation to the extreme.

Endless Soundscapes

The Lyra-8 doesn't stop at synthesis—it's a complete soundscaping powerhouse. Integrated Frequency Modulation (FM), LFO, vibrato, and delay effects offer a rich palette for your sonic adventures. Explore 81 combinations in the FM section alone, with each voice boasting its unique vibrato frequency.

Sculpt Chaos or Evoke Serenity

All voices journey through the delay, distortion, and gain modules, transforming your sounds into something extraordinary. The dual delay lines share a feedback path with the potential for self-oscillation, adding a new dimension to your sonic canvas. Dial in precision modulation depth via the Hyper LFO, external CV, or the delay line's output, and embrace sound's unpredictable, chaotic beauty.

Your Sonic Odyssey Awaits
