A Harmonious Symphony of Sonic Creation

Prepare to embark on an extraordinary auditory journey with the Soma Lyra-8, a groundbreaking organismic desktop analog synthesizer that redefines the art of sound creation. Explore its remarkable features, encompassing eight distinct voices, seamlessly integrated delay distortion, and an enchanting world of modulation possibilities. All of this awaits your touch, accessible through an intuitive interface of eight touch-sensitive keys.

Innovative Organismic Design

The Soma Lyra-8's avant-garde design defies traditional norms. Bid farewell to mundane Voltage-Controlled Oscillators (VCOs) with their ordinary waveform and tuning controls. In a revolutionary twist, each of the Lyra-8's eight voices can function independently or serve as a potential modulator for others. This versatility empowers you to effortlessly transition between harmonious chord progressions and the wild, untamed realm of frequency modulation (FM) textures. Whether you're sculpting ethereal ambient soundscapes or plunging headlong into the exhilarating depths of sonic experimentation with feedback and distortion, the Lyra-8 is poised to deliver.

Expressive Envelope Mastery

Within each oscillator, you'll uncover two touch-sensitive envelopes, responsive to your touch on the metal pads. The ingenious Hold function enables you to sustain Attack-Decay (AD) connections, liberating your hands for even more expressive tonal exploration. With the Fast control, you can finely adjust your envelope responses, opening a portal to a vast realm of sonic possibilities.

Modulation at Your Fingertips

Elevate your sonic tapestry with an array of modulation options. External Control Voltage (CV) and the Hyper Low-Frequency Oscillator (LFO) expand your creative palette, with versatile routing options to various destinations. With the power of two oscillators, modulation depth becomes a tool in your hands, allowing you to craft anything from sparkling, ethereal effects to audacious and experimental sonic landscapes.

Integrated Sonic Alchemy

But the Lyra-8 doesn't stop there – it's equipped with an array of integrated effects to push your creative boundaries even further. Dive into the Frequency Modulation (FM) section, accessible via three intuitive 4-way switches, offering an astonishing 81 potential combinations. Each voice even has its dedicated vibrato frequency, adding an extra layer of expressiveness to your compositions.

Hyper LFO: Your Sonic Canvas

The Hyper LFO, a dual-square wave oscillator, introduces complexity to your sonic canvas. Combine them using "OR" logic for dynamic fusion or multiply their effects with "AND" mode for intricate sonic layering. By linking both LFOs, you unlock an even deeper level of sonic exploration, with LFO A modulating the frequency of LFO B.

Master the Art of Sound Sculpting

All voices pass through the delay, distortion, and gain modules, transforming your sonic landscapes with every note. These modules aren't confined to internal voices; they can process external signals via the audio input, expanding your creative horizons. The Delay section encompasses two delay lines sharing a feedback path, offering modulation depth control via the Hyper LFO, external CV, or the delay line's own output. This opens a door to chaotic and unpredictable soundscapes. The distortion section, following the delay, provides precise control with a drive knob and Dry/Wet mix knob, enabling you to sculpt your sound with unparalleled finesse.

Your Gateway to Sonic Exploration

In essence, the Soma Lyra-8 transcends being merely a musical instrument; it stands as an unconventional work of art, a gateway to uncharted sonic realms. Musicians and creators from diverse backgrounds will find themselves captivated by the limitless creative possibilities it unveils. Whether you're crafting evolving ambient textures or summoning an imposing wall of sonic brilliance, the Lyra-8 is your passport to an unexplored universe of sound.
