ugly as fuck, hah! he's got a bunch of different ones and they're all as ugly: https://www.oversynth.com/blank-page


What a waste of money too. The signal flow is presented on the synth itself clear as day and is then covered by this atrocity of an overlay? If subtractive synthesis is not understood then there's always the manual.

yeah i agree, it's a waste of 30 bucks for sure. but i did find that picture somewhat useful when i started making my own patches. the layout of the ports is a bit messy, as opposed to say the erebus or other more modern synths:

The layout of the ports was created by god himself in his own image and thus they are perfect.

eh, the green one is passable. the white one reminds me of the new moog grandmother/matriarch series with the "beginner friendly" color coding.

Honestly, I'd rather have useful over "nice looking." Did you guys have a look at the new module series Dreadbox just released? Also I enjoy color-coding. I try to keep one for patches as well as it helps me understand faster what does what.

Also, I back the Erebus and the Nyx by Dreadbox. Two close friends I often jam with have them. They're easy to use and sound OK. My friends sure love them.

Also, Lyra-8 seems pretty cool but it looks like a one-trick poney (well, it sure is a massive hors actually) and you can't reproduce any you do twice from what I gather, because of the controllers. Hopefully I'm wrong.

For that price I'd make myself a nice eurorack case with more functions.

Maybe I see this with a live context in mind, I don't know.

If you already going the Eurorack route, skip the Lyra. It's an exciting tool for making noise, it has a very characteristic sound I haven't hear anywhere else and the built quality is unmatched, but it has some serious limitations that are expected from a noise synth but for the price of Lyra makes little sense. There is CV connectivity but it's marginal at best (at least if you are working with Eurorack) and however having 8 oscillators at hand is very powerful, the design philosophy of in the instrument leaves you with less freedom and possibilities than you want from this machine. I do like it, but it's not a keeper.

I made this track using only the Behringer Neutron.  No overdubs or post-processing, just hit record and jammed away for an hour.  This recording is 20 minutes of that session.  Quite fun and versatile, there was some live patching and just tweaking of knobs....  It turned into a sort of acidic ambient nightmare.

Might be of interest to some in this thread.
