In Fall 2023 4 synth nerds met up to attempt a Lyra 8 build. They spent 12 hours and only got about half-way done.
The case was a maple enclosure built by a close friend Trevor at Vigilant Guitars. The main panel and back I/O panel are aluminum PCBs.
Still more work to be done, Expect an update with finished photos and videos, and links to make your own panels if you want.
UPDATE: SATURDAY 20
Most attendees finished on Saturday.
This build is brutal. Panel components are point-to-point wired which means a ton of work. 192 Resistors across 34 different values on 3 different PCBs makes the construction tedious and time-consuming. All told, it took us 21 hours to finish this build, 12 hours on the first day to finish the mainboard, and another 9 hours to wire the panel, install knobs, and wire the boards together.
To anyone attempting this build, I recommend using 12-position and 5-position female DuPont cables cut in half and stripped. This makes the between-board wiring much simpler. Most components (including pots, switches, and knobs) can be purchased at Tayda for cheap.
I've uploaded the panel files on Github: https://github.com/cctvfm/Lyra8-PCBPanel
I have one panel set left over should anyone need one.
