Story

The Lyra-8 is a performance-oriented, fully analog drone synthesizer with very organic sound. The instrument features eight oscillators, which can be used separately or stacked to FM voices. For further sound design, there are the Hyper LFO, a superbly sounding Mod Delay and a beefy distortion circuit. Thanks to touch surfaces, the Lyra-8 can be played expressively. – A unique, very inspiring musical instrument.

Black version of the Lyra-8.

The SOMA Laboratory Lyra-8 Organismic Synthesizer is a self-contained synth designed for soundscapes, drones and FM experimentation. Using the eight metal touch sensors, which respond to the amount of covered surface area,  the Lyra-8 allows expressive playing.  

Two envelope modes with slow or fast response enable different dynamic behaviors.

Thanks to deep FM routing capabilities, it is possible to create dense, modulated sounds. The Hyper LFO provides a complex modulation source.

Additionally, the synth features a lo-fi dual delay and a distortion section.
