Lemur Releases New App Version For iOS

In this no-brainer move, the heads behind the now discontinued Lemur multitouch MIDI/OSC hardware piece have released an iOS version.

Before the iPad was introduced to the world way back in 2010, French company JazzMutant released the Lemur in 2004. Although it was starting to gain notoriety among the music set for being a touchscreen hardware controller with a cool looking graphic interface that supported multitouch, the piece had a few bugs and came in at a hefty price.

Once the iPad hit the streets as a much more cost effective solution and a wide variety of audio apps became available, the Lemur unfortunately lost its competitive edge and stopped production of their units in 2010.

This new Lemur app was developed by Liine, the company behind Griid, the clip controller app for Ableton Live comes in at 49.99 USD at the iTunes App Store and they are currently giving Lemur hardware owners a 50% rebate on it.

Some notes on the app’s specs:

Objects:
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

Physics:
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

Scripting:
a scripting engine allows you to build dynamic templates

Editor:
a cross-platform [OS X/Windows] interface builder. It allows you to create new Lemur templates or edit existing ones + drag & drop interface

Connectivity:
