There’s quite a lot gone into the new version of Lemur so I thought it’d be worth just posting some of the detail out of the press release.
Lemur has evolved. Now you can design your templates on the fly without a computer in sight. The In-App Editor (only available for iPad) makes multitouch control truly 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.
So what does editing templates directly In-App mean?
For novice users, 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.
For advanced users, the In-App Editor provides the possibility to quickly edit templates without breaking the musical flow. Whether you’re playing with live musicians or engineering a track in the studio, designing and using the Lemur controller becomes improvisatory. Need to add an extra fader for the reverb effect? Two seconds and you’ve got it.
Lemur now features three new skins in addition to the classic look. Choose the look that fits your style and get inspired.
