The Lira•8 is a digital attempt at emulating SOMA Lab's Lyra-8 signal flow and sound.
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.
Disclaimer: The Lira•8 project is not affiliated and does not represent SOMA laboratories.

I did a small composition for promoting the discord server. The patch is available on the #general chat.
Discord is an instant messaging application that allows users to have multiple chat rooms and voice chat rooms.
Imagine this forum only in chat form. This enables users to discuss multiple topics on different dedicated text channels and do live performances on voice chat.
Hope you join us!
I’ve been working on a sound installation that records your voice on a public space and then plays it back on a FM radio transmitter.
Since then, I’ve been searching for different voice activity detection (VAD) algorithms for Pure Data and found very little.
So far, my best lead is this article: https://medium.com/linagoralabs/voice-activity-detection-for-voice-user-interface-2d4bb5600ee3
So I thought I’d share my simple algorithm for VAD in public spaces and ask:
How would you approach detecting voice activity in real-time in a public space with a lot of noises and non-voice signals?
Here's my patch: VAD.pd
Hello! Kind of late to this thread.
Thought I might post my attempt on doing a low pass gate using vanilla objects.
Replaced threshold using >=~ from the heavy library.
And used lop~ since it has similar curves like the vactrol, only fixed attack and release.
Finally, I used a resonant-lowpass filter from the heavy library.
Lots of great info here, thanks guys.
Just thought I would share my attempt on replicating the sounds of Radiohead's Idioteque using only synthesis on Pure data vanilla:
Here's the result:
Patch available here, under the Instruments folder:
My latest effort to create an instrument that somewhat resembles a piano.
Basically it's a Karplus-Strong string with a fixed lop~ at 6kHz with a 240 filtered noise impulse and a filtered saw impulse.
