The Lyre is an ancient Greek Harp dating back to Mesopotamia (2500BC). This historical 7-string instrument was deeply sampled in a variety of finger positions, each with it’s own attack and percussive quality, including Finger, Nail, Muted and Short Tremolo. The finger is more warm and soft – where as the nail and muted articulations are more pointy, percussive and defined. There are also three types of harmonics, slides, under bridge and bowed Lyre. In addition the Lyre also contains Glissandi FX, Bowed FX and Sound FX.
The Lyre was recorded with four microphone positions, including contact mics, inside close mics, semi-close and room mics. The end-result is a staggering 9,300 samples. 8Dio also added a micro-tuner, so you can get traditional middle-eastern tunings for Lyre, and also their unique CHAOS FX engine to multiply the textures and possibilities this library has to offer.
