JazzMutant Intros Mu, The Lubricious Multi-Touch Control App For Ableton Live + Lemur

Musikemesse 2010: JazzMutant officially introduced Mu – a plugin in that brings “ultimate integration between the Lemur controller and Ableton Live.”

We’ve covered Jazzmutant Mu in its pre-release form. With Musikmesse, though, JazzMutant has announced plans to release Mu as a free download for Lemur users next week.

Here’s the latest word from JazzMutant on Mu:

JazzMutant Mu

Powered by Max for Live, Mu gives instant automatic integration with any Live set – even existing Live sets. There’s no programming to be done, simply drag and drop the Mu Max for Live Device on to the Master Track and the Lemur controller is ready to allow deeper integration with Live than has ever been possible before.

With just a tap of the finger Mu displays exactly what you need. A Clip Launcher shows the name, colour and the playing status of clips in your session. The Clip Launcher can also be dynamically resized to suit the way you work.

And for controlling all Live devices look no further than the Device Selector. Simply select any Live device from any track and Mu brings up a custom graphical interface that makes controlling multiple parameters quick, easy and totally intuitive. Interfaces have been custom designed for each device, or for the ultimate in flexibility why not create your own custom device controllers?

With Mu everything is plug and play. There’s no programming, no setting up – no knowledge of MIDI, Max MSP or assigning controllers is needed. Simply drag the Mu device on to the Master Track and Lemur instantly becomes the ultimate hands-on interface for the ultimate music creation software. Drag… drop… rock!

Mu is free for all existing Lemur owners and will be released the week following MusikMesse.
