This looks amazing - but arent they incredibly expensive?

At first look, one would think so - around 2000 Euros/Dollars. But when you consider what this can do - essentially replace your Mackie Control and other controller based devices, it's not too bad.

Now, I dont know about reliability or durability - that is something I hope to research a little more.

Looks slick, but other than the multitouch function, which I can't imagine using frequently, how is this better than a $375 Xenarc touch screen which doesn't need any configuring and works out of the box with any app??

Thats a fair point, I suspect they arent as durable as the lemur and are not as tactile - you need to be pretty accurate with your fingers for close grouped interface stuff - I imagine clip triggering or fader manipulation on a straight touchscreen would be quite hard.

Also, I'm not sure about using a touchscreen live. I would think a closer relative might be the Wacom LCD tablets - but they are pretty expensive too.

Hi, Wacom tabets are not polyphonic and dont integrate well with DAWs etc. Ive got a Cintiq and its good for drawing but not for music....

I think in one of your podcasts a participant said he was getting brilliant results using a 15" touch screen and no other displays. He said he could match anyone for speed. Wasn't that a Cintiq??

Yep that was Richard Evans. But it is still monophonic - with multi-touch you have more control. And if you lose your pen....

Thanks for the review. It was helpful to see it actually being used. Would you mind doing an interface with a video app. and changing effects on the fly on a short video clip?

I am a proud owner of the 2.0 Lemur. It is so incredible that I feel gulity for leaving the house when I could be exploring the Lemur even further. I know they are incredibly expensive...but they are incredibly vauable for that reason.
