Waldorf Kyra Synthesizer Has Over 3000 Wavetables, 1280 Oscillators. Here's What It Sounds Like.

This monster synth from Waldorf could be one of the biggest we've ever heard in terms of its power and feature set. We got a chance to demo it at NAMM 2019.

KYRA is a 128 voice, 10 oscillator-per-voice virtual analogue synthesizer. It’s 8 part multi-timbral and the oscillators are in two groups of 5 for a total of 1280 actual oscillators. It's an absolute monster of a synth, and even lets you recreate some of the classic Waldorf synth sounds that we know and love. We got a hands-on tour of the synth at NAMM 2019, which you can check out here!

Other features:

  • Over 3000 wavetables to select from and they are oversampled by the FPGA engine with no aliasing
  • Hypersaw mode which sets all oscillators to sawtooth with spread and detuning
  • 3 LFO’s per part that run wavetable shapes
  • Dual analogue modelled ladder filters that can be used separately or together
  • 3 envelope generators - one for the filter, one for the amplifier
  • A 9-algorithm 6-part DSP effects section
  • 6-slot modulation matrix with 3 destinations for each source
  • Arpeggiator

    Sounds like waldorfmusic.com is a more appropriate link than the one given here… (Although, they’ve yet to post about the Kyra.)
