The interface is divided across four pages: Launch, Modulate, Play and Sequencer. Each page is deep and feature-rich, while the layout is clear and intuitive. Compatible with both Live 8 and Live 9.
Here’s a demo of LiveControl 2 in action: Continue reading

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:
This video, via PeffTV, captures some experimentation with the Liine Lemur iPad app with Buffre Beat Repeater Rack Extension for Propellerhead Reason.
This is a great demonstration of how developers can use the iPad to create custom multitouch control surfaces for VSTs and other music apps to increase their playability.
The Lemur template is available at Peff’s site (zip.
This series of videos, via DubSpot instructor Evan Sutton. takes a look at using Lemur for the iPad and making new control surfaces using the Lemur Editor.
Lemur Tutorial Part One:
In part one, basic setup of the Lemur and Lemur Editor are explained. To start, an Ad-Hoc network is created. Once the iPad running Lemur software is connected, it will automatically update with the changes made in the editor. As far as objects go, we’ll start with the Fader and MultiBall. A great thing about the Lemur is its physics engine, which we can use with both objects.
After MIDI is set up, it’s time to take a look at the Lemur Daemon. The Lemur Daemon brokers internal MIDI connections between incoming Lemur control signals and other programs running on your computer, such as Ableton Live. Here, we set up the connection manually.
The original Lemur was a hardware unit, introduced back in 2004. But the Lemur platform has achieved new popularity with the introduction of Lemur for iPad by Liine. Using the Lemur Editor, you can create custom interfaces for the Lemur.
Audio/visual artist Malaventura sent word of DIY (Drone It Yourself) – a Lemur template for iPad designed to manipulate drones.
it comes with 6 drones, where every drone is composed by 5 loops that you can modified and add effects; a stepsequencer (The Drone machine) to create noisy rhythms and the most famous feature of the Lemur, the multiball, that changes the panning and volume of the drones.
Details are available in a PDF attached to the .zip archive.
Free Music Software: This is an improvised demonstration with Rheynelooper, a free live looping template for the Lemur platform, featuring a single audio channel, drums, a monophonic synth, and a polyphonic synth.
The Rheynelooper template allows the iPad + Lemur app combination to be used seemlessly as a looper, drum pad & synth controller.
Two Ableton Live projects are included in the download: one for owners of Native Instruments Massive and the other version works with the full download of Ableton Live.
