EASY TO USE
Simple controls help you get started quickly. Whether you’re recording a podcast interview, a YouTube video voice-over, or your next Spotify single, every function you need is ergonomically placed and easily accessed right on the mic—so you can stay in the moment while always being in control. You can even plug your headphones directly into Lyra, further streamlining your setup.
Inspired by classic studio microphones like the legendary AKG C414, the Lyra mic offers a sleek design that’s sure to spark your creativity. An integrated stand with built-in cable management makes it easy to position Lyra on your desktop. Lyra can also be mounted on a traditional mic stand or microphone boom arm for more flexibility.
Four versatile capture modes eliminate guesswork, so you can quickly dial in professional sound.
Isolates your target source from distracting background noise by rejecting unwanted sounds at the microphone back and sides. It’s perfect for recording or live-streaming spoken word, vocals, or close-miked instruments.
This is the most commonly used capture mode for recording. It works well for voiceovers, podcasters, vloggers, gamers, vocalists, acoustic instruments and web conferencing. In front mode, the Lyra captures audio sources from the front of the mic while significantly reducing audio from the back and sides.
Front & back
Captures and blends together sound equally on all sides; ideal for face-to-face interviews and duets.
This capture mode works particularly well for recording multiperson interviews, podcasters, vloggers, multiple musicians positioned around the microphone and for game sound effects recording. Sound will be picked up evenly from all sides.
Captures audio in true stereo. Because this setting provides discrete left and right audio, it provides great sound separation for side-by-side interviews or panel discussions, and is perfect for recording instruments like drums or piano.
This setting utilizes two microphone capsules for tight stereo pickup in front of Lyra. It is ideal for recording instruments with stereo spread, performers positioned next to each other in front of the Lyra and recording any other sound source(s) with a natural stereo spread.
Captures audio with greater stereo separation, room ambience, and depth. This setting is ideal for situations where you want to capture sounds all around the mic, such as documentaries, field recordings, or spontaneous jam sessions.
This capture mode provides greater stereo separation and depth compared to Tight Stereo mode. This setting works exceptionally well for ensemble and ambient recording where a wide left-right stereo image is desired.
With AKG Lyra, you’ll be up and running in no time, no matter your experience level. There’s no assembly, no need for a separate audio interface, no fiddling with software settings—it just works, right out of the box. And Lyra is compatible with Windows, Mac, iOS and Android devices so you can quickly capture your ideas in the studio or on the go. From recording music in a digital audio workstation to live streaming on Twitch to shooting a YouTube video, using Lyra is as easy as plugging in a USB cable and pressing Go Live or Record.
Built-In Headphone Controls
When you’re speaking, singing or playing an instrument in the studio, you need to hear yourself and your backing tracks at the same time in order to perform your best. That’s why Lyra is equipped with a “zero-latency” headphone jack, which eliminates the short delay between when you perform into the microphone and when you hear yourself in the headphones, so you can stay focused on your performance.
A Complete Production Studio
Lyra works seamlessly with all major audio and video production software and online platforms, and includes Ableton Live 10 Lite recording software. Whether you’re going for a polished, modern sound or a classic vintage vibe, Lyra gives you everything you need to bring your ideas to life.
