Description

Built from the ground up for VR, LyraVR is a music creation platform that offers everyone from the casual user to the most ardent musician the chance to create and enjoy incredible music sequences in full room-scale VR. Enjoy being completely immersed in the music and interact with compositions like never before. Sculpt breathtaking musical sequences and share your visual symphonies with friends, fans or collaborators, then perform them in real-time, in the process pioneering a radical new form of sound art. Create loops, move and tune your sounds by hand-placing them in virtual space, press play, and enjoy your musical masterpieces in a completely unique way. LyraVR has a range of impressive features, including the ability to customize the tempo and speed of each musical note and experiment with instruments including a nine-pad drum controller and an 88-key keyboard, not to mention a suite of loops provided by Loopmasters. Users can also enjoy an audio effects library or import and display their own audio via an innovative system for rendering audio waveforms in virtual reality. The latest release also features spatial audio with detachable VR “ears” that users can drag around their VR composition to alter the audio perspective. For a complete list of new features and details of the latest release, please visit our Steam page, and expect further releases of extra downloadable content as LyraVR grows and evolves as a platform. Designed by musicians for anyone with an interest in music, LyraVR is revolutionizing the digital soundscape through a fresh, cutting-edge approach to creating, sharing and performing music in VR.
