Liine has announced the release of Lemur, a multitouch MIDI/OSC controller app for iOS.
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.
- Physics – 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. What’s more, you can even control the physics parameters of one object from another. This opens up the door to a wide range of modulation options, ready to control any piece of gear.
- Editor – The Lemur is provided with Lemur Editor, a cross-platform (Mac/Win) interface builder. This software enables you to create and edit templates, as well as loading them to Lemur. The number of pages that can be included in a single project is limited only by your imagination. In addition to the editing features, the Lemur Editor also provides a comprehensive hierarchical overview of your project. It also offers a full set of options to customize each object: dimension, shape, appearance, status and behavior. This is also where you can edit physics parameters.
- Scripting – In the Lemur Editor, the multiline script panel opens up a whole new world of possibilities. You can modify the physical behaviour, appearance or size of an object in real time. Add a ball to a MultiBall object by touching a pad, zoom in on a fader for ultimate precision or modify a Text object content via MIDI or OSC. Use scripts to really tweak the response of your Lemur interface and make it feel like an extension of your body.
- Connectivity – Lemur supports OSC and MIDI protocols over Wi-Fi. Lemur also supports CoreMIDI. You can use any standard MIDI interface through the Apple Camera Connection Kit, or an iOS specific audio interface such as iConnect MIDI. Lemur supports up to 8 different and simultaneous MIDI and OSC ports targets.
Lemur for iOS is available to purchase for $49.99 USD. All owners of Lemur hardware who purchase the Lemur app on or before January 5, 2012 are eligible for a 50% rebate.
