The Soma Lyra-8 is a revolutionary organismic desktop analogue synthesiser with eight sounds, an integrated delay distortion and modulation system, and eight responsive touch sensor keys.

The Soma Lyra-8 is a powerful drone and noise machine with broad, non-hierarchical linkages among its modules. These connections follow non-linear patterns resembling organic structures in biological creatures, meaning "Organismic."

With the Soma Lyra-8, an avant-garde desktop analogue synthesiser that pushes the frontiers of sound production, you may unleash your musical creativity. This instrument defies convention and starts on an astonishing aural journey with its mesmerising array of eight voices, integrated delay distortion, and modulation magic.

A Sound Creation Symphony

With the Soma Lyra-8, a breakthrough organismic desktop analogue synthesiser, prepare for an audio experience. Discover its astonishing capabilities, including as eight voices, integrated delay distortion, and modulation magic, all accessible via an easy-to-use interface of eight touch-sensitive keys.

Organismic Evolution

The avant-garde design of the Lyra-8 defies convention. Say goodbye to the dull waveform and tuning knobs of standard Voltage-Controlled Oscillators (VCOs). Instead, each of the Lyra-8's eight voices can operate alone or as a potential modulator for others. This adaptability allows you to go easily from harmonic chord progressions to the wild world of frequency modulation (FM) soundscapes. Whether creating airy ambient landscapes or dabbling in wild sound experiments using feedback and distortion, the Lyra-8 stands ready to deliver.

Envelopes with Expression

Discover two touch-sensitive envelopes operated by the metal pads within each oscillator. The revolutionary Hold feature keeps Attack-Decay (AD) connections active, freeing up your hands for even more expressive tone modulation. With the Fast control, you can fine-tune your envelope reactions, bringing you a world of musical possibilities.

Mastery of Modulation

Enhance your sonic tapestry with extra modulation possibilities via External Control Voltage (CV) and the Hyper Low-Frequency Oscillator (LFO), both of which include flexible routing to several destinations. The capacity to produce everything from glittering, shimmering effects to ambitious sound experiments is at your fingertips, owing to a pair of oscillators.

Sonic Alchemy in Action

But the Lyra-8 doesn't end there; it also has a slew of inbuilt effects to stretch your creative boundaries even further. Dive into the Frequency Modulation (FM) segment, accessible via three simple four-way switches with 81 potential combinations. Every voice has its unique vibrato frequency.

Hyper LFO Exploration

The Hyper LFO, a dual-square wave oscillator, expands the musical palette. For musical fusion, combine them using "OR" logic or multiply them using "AND" mode for elaborate sound layering. Connect both LFOs for even more sound experimentation, with LFO A controlling the frequency of LFO B.

Sound Sculpting Mastery

All voices pass through the delay, distortion, and gain modules with each note, altering your soundscapes. These modules may process external signals through the audio input and internal voices, broadening your creative horizons even further. Two delay lines share a feedback route in the Delay section, and their modulation depth may be changed by the Hyper LFO, external CV, or the delay line's output. This allows for chaotic and unexpected soundscapes. Following the delay, the distortion section provides precision control with a drive knob and a Dry/Wet mix knob, allowing you to create your sound carefully.

Your Sonic Exploration Portal

The Soma Lyra-8 is more than simply a musical instrument; it's an out-of-the-box piece of art, a doorway to unknown sound realms. Musicians and composers of all genres will be enthralled by its limitless creative possibilities, from constructing changing ambient soundscapes to summoning a wall of aural brilliance. The Lyra-8 is your ticket to a sound realm ripe for exploration.
