Lemur 5 Update Adds Sequencing, Custom Object Design


Liine has released Lemur 5.0 – the latest version of its MIDI/OSC control app for iOS.

Version 5.0 introduces the Canvas object, which lets you create completely custom interfaces; and the Sequencer family of features:

  • Canvas is a brand new object that lets you script custom widgets with full multitouch support. The object is adapted from the HTML5 Canvas element, which means you can design widgets featuring complex shapes, animation, shadows, and transparency .The Canvas object opens the door to a completely new Lemur experience, where the appearance and behavior of objects can be designed to precisely match the demands of your project. Polygons, waveforms, circular objects and infinitely more are all possible with Canvas.
  • Sequencer – Lemur 5.0 introduces a family of new features for tight sequencing. This includes three new objects: StepNote, StepSwitch and StepSlider. Each of these provides a different flavour of sequencing and is ready to use right out of the box. The objects do the hard work for you, simple add them to your template and they are ready to control your MIDI instruments.
