Waldorf Music has announced availability of Kyra, a powerful hardware virtual analog synthesizer capable of creating a wide range of contemporary sounds for live and studio musicians.
First unveiled at the 2019 NAMM Show in Anaheim earlier this year, Waldorf has now released its 128-voice, FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) processing-powered synth.
Kyra is aimed at the semi-professional and professional producer. It is equally at home in live or studio environments. Live musicians will appreciate the big, floor-filling “wall of sound” and built-in effects that means Kyra can go straight to the mixer and venue amplification.
Studio producers will appreciate the massive polyphony, multiple parts and ability to integrate completely with their audio workstations via multiple, balanced analog outputs as well as the high-capacity audio streaming via high-speed, class-compliant USB 2.0.
Kyra was created to fill a gap in the synthesizer market for a powerful digital, virtual analog synthesizer. Key to the design was to have no compromises on sound quality, ease of use, studio integration and raw power, all with a price tag that puts ownership within reach of producers working to a real-world budget.
The Kyra VA Synthesizer is available at a suggested reseller price of 1,843 EUR (excluding tax).
