Thanks for listening/looking, over dada.
I made the music first and animated the videos to the music. The animations and their narratives were improvised while making them and driven by what I imagined the sounds depticted.

The Sky and the Ocean

I have been on the waiting list for an 8 for a long time, but I am really enjoying the sound of this Lyra 4 demo. Can anyone with a Lyra 8 confirm wether or not it can sound like this? The website says the 8 is basically two 4's except the delays interact differently resulting in the 8's more modula...

Hi All,

Wondering if there are any ways to get the rate of the Arpeggiator to sync (or interact in interesting, controlled ways) with the pulser or eg?

The question shouldn't be "is muffwiggler offensive?"
