Mike Moreno DSP has recently released the Lira•8 Organismic Synthesizer. The free software synthesizer instrument attempts to emulate the signal flow and sound of SOMA Laboratory’s Lyra-8.

This unique analog synthesizer designed by Vlad Kreimer behaves like a living organism, with modules interacting with each other.

The Lyra 8 is a Russian drone synthesizer with 8 tunable voices each, FM, dual delay, hyper LFO and distortion.

It makes it optimal for drones, ambient landscapes, outer space sounds, etc.

The Lira•8 software instrument is available in VST/VST3, LV2, and AU plugin formats, and as standalone software for Linux64, Windows and MacOS. The source code is available at GitHub.
