Looking forward to version 2
AstroPhil, 28.02.2020
Why version 2, well, one of the most important features of a self contained space drone machine is a powerful reverb. This is missing here. In addition, the LFO speed cannot go really slow, e.g. over a minute or longer cycle time. This is a real pity when it comes to slow space ambient soundscapes at ultra slow rythm. Other than that, the sound can be very rich, unique, weird, alien, so nothing short of that one, except for the missing reverb.

More than an alien space ambient drone machine
Ottebol, 20.03.2020
I have this Lyra-8 now for some time and the only disappointment I had was the lack of an integrated reverb, however, with a Mooer Ocean from Thomann I ended up with the perfect combination. The youtube demos of the Lyra-8 represent only a mere fraction of its capabilities. This instrument is for the rest of your life, because every time it produces something different than ever before. To boldly play what noone has ever played before. This is the star trek of the drones, without final frontier ;-)

Amazing Analog Drone Synth
Dereka24, 14.07.2020
Excellent build and sound quality. No presets, Its a synth you have to actually play! I run my vocals , Synths and Drum brute through its delay and distortion . Check out a few videos before you buy and be sure you know what your buying as its a synth you really have to engage with , but the results can be absolutely stunning. or........absolute chaos! which is also amazing. Great purchase have to say.
