Lemur is the original multi-touch controller - pioneering multi-touch control as long ago as 2004. Lemur turns your iPhone or iPad into "the ultimate hands-on controller".
An iPad or iPhone running Lemur can connect via Wi-Fi or USB MIDI and control multiple elements of a music environment using one of the many existing templates. Custom templates can be created with the Lemur's drag'n'drop editor.
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.
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.
The physics engine, which can make faders and balls bounce, allows anything from a slight organic feel to absolutely chaotic modulations. Lemur comes with more than twice as many unique objects as comparable apps, according to Liine.
The user can share and 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.
Price: $49.99 / €39.99 / £29.99. Available now on the iTunes App Store.
All owners of Lemur hardware, which once cost over €2000, who purchase the Lemur app on or before January 5, 2012, are eligible for a 50% rebate.
