Free Lyra instruments to download

Post by ecstaticax » Tue Dec 22, 2015 6:26 am

I was thinking that when we use Lyra we all make the same steps:

1) Check how to import samples
2) Search for free samples on line
3) Create the "Sampler Instruments" directory, create zip and import them.
4) Verify with Lyra if they works
5) Delete what doesn't play and keep the working one.

For example, in the Sonatina Symphonic Orchestra, I realized that some instruments are perfectly playing, others don't, so I will have to filter only what works.

I was thinking to create a space (perhaps on Mega, or somewhere else) where to keep some zips with GM soundbanks, simple instruments and so on, already zipped and ready to be imported in Auria without additional work: download in AudioShare (or even with browser), open in Auria and everything works.

Would you help adding your samples (obviously free from any copyright)?

Regards.

You're welcome to create a list of free downloads for Lyra. That sounds great to me.

For the Symphonic samples, it's possible this is a "keyswitched" instrument. This means you won't hear anything until you press a specific key that switches to a different sample set.

Actually, I have created this share:

https://mega.nz/#F!gYNn0QKK!J3CYzOcjsoQVxQ5bGQxdQQ


You will find three different folders: one with General Midi soundbanks, another one with some instruments and a third one with Sonatina Orchestra.

I still have to filter the good instruments from the silent ones in Sonatina. You simply have to download it directly from Safari and open in Auria.
If you want a good downloader (that shows you the progress bar) you can use Documents 5 from Readdle.

As soon as I will increase my collections of free samples, I will add them to that share on Mega.

Sounds great. I'll make this a sticky so others can add their own collections.
