Lyra-8 Expressive Lead with SEM Pro, Semblance and Taurus III Sequencing

"For your maximum pleasure use good speakers or good headphones while watching/listening to this video.

I openly admit I am still very far from mastering Lyra-8 on at least intermediate level. At the moment, I don't think I am able to predict more than 60% of what's going to happen in the next moment, if I tweak this knob, switch or change this or that on the instrument. But still it produces so expressive and inspiring sounds no matter what, so you just want to play it. As most of the videos I saw before I decided to order Lyra-8 were Lyra-8 as solo instruments, I am also very happy and glad Lyra integrates so naturally and easily into the rest of my set up.

This video is an excerpt from about two hours long improvisation/dawless synth jam. In this segment I managed to turn Lyra-8 into what I would call expressive lead synth, but I have no problem, if you disagree with such label in the context of this video and how Lyra-8 sounds in it. Anyway the rest of the set up is SEM Pro by Tom Oberheim, Semblance by Analogue Solutions and Taurus III Bass Pedals - all sequenced by Cirklon hardware sequencer. Additionally there is also Elements Synthesizer by Ken Macbeth producing self-generated and beautifully organic sounds. Lyra-8, SEM Pro, Semblance and Taurus III are also processed through Strymon Big Sky for reverb and SEM Pro with Semblance also through the vintage tape Roland Space Echo for delay.

Enjoy ;)"
