“Character” and “Type” control the color of the exciter, “Soften” will soften or harden the initial attack portion of the string, “Decay” controls the length of the string and “Damp” controls the harmonic decay of the string.

“Life” will add variation for each strike, “Detune” will detune the string (0-12 semitones), “Vel” controls the velocity response and “Spread” controls the stereo image.

Absolutely beautiful, thank you. Works well with your Feel device too.

Thanks a lot. It works very well with Microtuner. Beautiful.
Love it. Easy to use with great results.
@iftah WHAT AN ELEGANT GEM!!! THANK YOU!!! I discovered Pyr via the CDM article,

I've been using it on recent tracks, strumming it on my Expressive E Osmose. Awesome you made it MPE-ready. Would you like to include some presets with it? I made some I can send over that would make it even easier for first-time Pyr-ians to get started with.

It's really cool to pair this with a realistic acoustic space reverb.
Still one of the best!
