What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Getting community feedback is very important to us. Using the Early Access period will allow LyraVR to improve as a product by giving the development team a better idea of what users want and need. We can't wait to see what you create with LyraVR, and also how you use LyraVR in ways that we didn't expect.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We're aiming for Q4 2017 general full release.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Some of the improvements to LyraVR we plan to make while we are in Early Access include a vastly expanded palette of instrument nodes, more controller instruments specifically designed for VR, and enhanced visualization options. We plan to continue to polish the look and feel of LyraVR, and also to include tools for users to customize their environment. We also want to offer additional sound packs in the styles that users request most. Another priority on our development road map is to give users the ability to share their creations online, and to download songs made by other users.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“LyraVR is already a fully functional sequencer. You can place nodes and link them into sequences, or you can create loops and nodes by playing controller instruments like the DK9 drum kit and the KB88 keyboard. LyraVR lets you easily create chords, arpeggios and play preset musical phrases with the Autoplayer 3000 controller. You can import audio loops as well as record audio inside of LyraVR and re-import it as loops. You can edit multiple nodes at once - create a loop and easily duplicate it, or change the pitch on all nodes at once.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to gradually raise the price during early access as we add new content and features.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will be active in the forums and relying on the community for feedback.”

Release Notes - V.0.5.9.0

  • added xFader - 2-channel mixer with crossfader*
  • added new demo song "Converging" to showcase the xFader
  • added option to turn off positional sound in settings **
  • positional sound and 3D audio options are now saved on a per-song basis

* The xFader controller provides a two-channel mixer with master effects. It vastly improves Lyra's flexibilty when it comes to controlling the mix, and opens the door to DJ-style mixing of complete songs. Assign nodes, import nodes, or node chains to either the red or yellow channel, and smoothly fade the mix between the two channels.

To assign items to a channel, take a channel ring from either the yellow or red rotating ring models atop the xFader, and place the item to assign inside the ring. To remove it from the channel ring, change to the edit tool, and hover the mallet over the item, then pull the trigger when the eject icon appears.
Notes:
  • trigger and stop playback of nodes in a channel ring by tapping the node
  • triggering and stopping are executed on bar boundaries, meaning playback is always in sync
  • triggering of channel rings are mutually exclusive for that channel, ie. tapping a node in a yellow channel ring will stop playback of any other yellow channel rings
  • the currently active channel ring will blink white and bounce on the beat
Known issues:
  • when any swing is applied (ie. the swing setting is higher than 0), nodes in channel rings don't trigger on the beat correctly

** When performing live or when using the xFader with complete songs eg. when DJing, it may appropriate to switch off positional sound in the settings menu. When positional sound is switched off, the sound field no longer updates to reflect the position of the HMD.
Notes:
  • switching off positional sound may cause material to sound a lot louder and it may be necessary to reduce the volume of nodes to prevent clipping
  • with positional sound switched off, the 3D audio setting has no effect
