Lemur 4 add a fully-featured in-app template editor, so you can create new controllers directly on your iPad; and three new user interface skins.
Liine also today announced LiveControl 2, which they describe as ‘the ultimate Live controller’. LiveControl 2 will be a free download and is expected in early 2013.
Here are the details:
Liine Lemur v4
- In App Editor — Lemur 4 lets you design templates on the fly, without a computer in sight. The In-App Editor makes multitouch control improvisatory by letting you shape your controller the same way you shape sounds. Virtually every function of the desktop editor application is now available through an intuitive system of iOS menus and widgets. Best of all – it’s easier to use than ever. This means a much smaller learning curve and an immediate initial experience. Any basic configuration, such as a typical bank of faders, can now be created with a few familiar taps and gestures. And any factory template can be adjusted quickly to suit your particular needs.
- Skins — Lemur now features three new skins, in addition to the classic look. Choose the look that fits your style and get inspired.
- LiveControl 2 — Designed in partnership with master designer ST8. LiveControl 2 will let you improvise a riff on the Play page, then switch to the Sequencer page to edit the pattern. Choose a key and scale to guide your melodies and use Quick Chord to create harmonies. Use the Modulate page to map any parameter from any plugin to the MultiBall object and take advantage of Physics, LFOs and gesture recording. The Launch lets you use Lemur as clip launcher. Lemur 2 also includes snapshots and morphing.
Here’s the intro video for Lemur 4:
- Objects – Fader; Multislider, Range; Multiball; Knob; RingArea; Switches; Pads; Custom Button; Container; Breakpoint; Leds; LemurMenu; 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. Make your controller come alive.
- Scripting – If you’re the type who likes to get their hands dirty then there’s a powerful scripting engine inside Lemur. Harnessing this power will allow you to build extremely dynamic templates.
Requirements (for the Lemur Daemon):
- OS X (Intel only) 10.5+
- Windows (XP SP3 or 7 recommended)
- Connectivity – connect your iPad/iPhone to your laptop over Wi-Fi. Lemur also supports CoreMIDI, allowing you to use hardware interfaces such as Alesis’ iO Dock or the iConnectMIDI or class-compliant USB MIDI interfaces via the CCK.
Lemur 4 is available now in the App Store for $49.99.
