I am in search of an ambient “budget” synth to add textures to my sounds. I was first interested in the lyra-8 but the price and some of the demos made me move away from that, it seems a bit too “agressive” for my tastes.
I was searching online and found a “budget” version of the Lyra-8 called the Elmyra and it seemed pretty interesting with a bit of fx applied to its sounds.
The other very cheap option I considered is the SOMA Rumbles of Ancient Times but it seems quite harsh w/o heavy fx processing (but you might always need some kind of fx for ambient I guess).
This is the type of sounds I would like to achieve:
I also know some people suggesting granular synth online but the only “budget” option I found is the microgranny by Bastl but the demos online seem to show a lot of “clicks” in the sound which I find unpleasant…
My budget is around 300 euros max
Any help or advice on the synths I mentionned or other recommendations would be appreciated
