JazzMutant has announced updates to both the Lemur controller and the company’s website.
New JazzMutant Site: The main new feature of the web site is its Workshop section. The new section is a collection of tutorials and examples to help you get the feel of your new Lemur in a couple of hours, while using your favorite software.
Available tutorials: “Surround Panning Strategies” with Cubase SX ; “Exploring Granular Synthesis” with Max/MSP and a Lemur project template destinated to control the most popular loop-based sequencer: Ableton Live 5.
