Review - Lemur Polyphonic Touchscreen Control Pt2


The Lemur Touchscreen Controller from Jazz Mutant, is a unique new way of controlling your software (or hardware). Armed with a colour polyphonic touch-screen (yes that’s right you can move multiple points at once), it can be configured to do pretty much whatever a hardware MIDI controller can do , and some. The unit communicates over ethernet, you can just plug it in to your network - so you can still do the internet thing if you need. On the host computer, to allow the Lemur to communicate with MIDI applications, the Jazz Daemon must be run, this interprets the incoming data and turns it into stuff your sequencer or soft-synth or whatever can understand. The Jazz Daemon gives you 8 separate MIDI busses to route as you see fit - say one for Mackie Control data, one for keyboard or note trigger info etc etc. In the second part of this review, I’ll attempt to answer some of the questions that have arisen from the first part and show a little more about the Jazz Lemur editor and how simple it is to modify templates. Remember, please feel free to get in touch or post a comment here and I’ll try to answer your questions.
