Multi-touch controller is now compatible with all iOS devices 08/12/11
The Lemur multi-touch controller is now available for iPad and iPhone. The Lemur experience, which once cost over 2000 EUR, is now available
on the iTunes App Store for only 49.99 USD / 39.99 EUR / 29.99 GBP. Here's the press release with all the details:
Lemur is the original multi-touch controller. Pioneering multi-touch
control as long ago as 2004, Lemur completely revolutionised Music
Production and Performance. No wonder, then, that you'll find Lemur in
the studios of Daft Punk, Deadmau5, Richie Hawtin, Ryuichi Sakamoto,
Björk... What is Lemur?
Lemur turns your iPhone or iPad into the ultimate hands-on controller.
Connect via Wi-Fi or USB MIDI and within seconds you're controlling
multiple elements of your music environment with ease. Either use one
of the many existing templates or create your own quickly and easily
with the easy-to-use drag'n'drop editor. Why choose Lemur?
Rock solid standard
Major stadium-touring acts use Lemur on stage. The original hardware
version was introduced to the public in 2004 and Lemur software
benefits from almost a decade of development. These are just two of
the reasons Lemur is the name cited when talking about multi-touch
Lemur can control anything
Lemur is a professional iOS controller app that doesn't cut any
corners. It lets you control anything, any way you want. Total
flexibility means it can go as deep as you need it to. Lemur can
control DJ software, live electronic music performance software,
studio production software (DAWs), VJ software, visual synthesis
software, stage lighting and more. In fact, any software or hardware
that can be controlled by MIDI or OSC can be controlled by Lemur.
A controller unequalled
Lemur has often been imitated but never equalled. The physics engine,
which can make faders and balls bounce, is entirely unique: allowing
anything from a slight organic feel to absolutely chaotic modulations.
Lemur goes deep: it comes with more than twice as many unique objects
as comparable apps. Options for adjusting the look and feel of objects
are vast, and connection to your gear is simple.
Access templates from top artists and the Lemur community. Some of
these are actual templates used on stage, others are pure studio or
creative tools. Share your own or simply browse the library and
download whatever suits your needs.
All these major artists can't be wrong:
Daft Punk, Björk, Nine Inch Nails, Deadmau5, M.I.A., Justice, Hot
Chip, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Orbital, Richie Hawtin, The Glitch Mob,
Matthew Herbert, Joris Voorn, Stephan Bodzin, Modeselektor, Alva Noto,
Richard Devine, Gui Boratto...
Lemur gives you a vast array of Objects for building templates, such
as: Fader; MultiSlider, Range; MultiBall; Knob; RingArea; Switches;
Pads; Custom Button; Container; Breakpoint; Leds; Menu; Monitor;
SignalScope; SurfaceLCD; Text
Hated physics at school? Now you'll love it! The behaviour of many
Lemur objects can be affected by powerful and easy to use physical
models which can make your controller bounce, rebound and oscillate.
Make your controller come alive.
There's absolutely no need to dive into scripting if you don't want
to. But if you're the type who likes to get their hands dirty then
there's a powerful scripting engine inside Lemur. Harnessing this
power will allow you to build extremely dynamic templates.
The Lemur Editor is a cross-platform (OS X/Windows) interface builder.
It allows you to create new Lemur templates or edit existing ones. The
drag & drop interface makes it easy to use, allowing you to create
templates for anything from the simplest set of faders to the most
complex groovebox with no hassle.
Simply connect your iPad/iPhone to your laptop over Wi-Fi and make the
connection! Lemur also supports USB MIDI, allowing you to use
hardware interfaces such as Alesis' iO Dock, iConnect MIDI or any
other class compliant device with the camera connection kit. You can
even control up to 8 computers from one iPad with Lemur!
