More flexible. More intuitive. More control.

With the groundbreaking Lemur controller Jazzmutant have revolutionised the way in which performers can now interact with light, video and sound. The Lemur offers an unrivalled package of intuitive features beneath a futuristic multitouch-sensitive surface, and as result has won fans across the globe including the groundbreaking musicians Richie Hawtin, Björk and Ryuichi Sakamoto.

With the new free version 2 firmware update Jazzmutant are taking the Lemur to another level of control, flexibility and intuitive operation. A host of new object features allows users to really interact with sound and manipulate it in real time like never before. Workflow improvements, scripting additions and other new features allow the controller to be used seamlessly with leading software applications. Ableton Live users, in particular, will benefit from some of the new features.

Organised Container objects with tabs

You can now pile up several containers and access their content through their indiviual tabs. Put all the controls you need for one part of your performance in one tab, then simply push the next tab to reveal a whole new bank. This feature will definitely allow you to greatly improve interface layouts and ergonomics.

Enhanced control of all your envelopes with the new Breakpoint object

The new Breakpoint object offers total control of synthesiser or sampler envelopes with a multi-segment envelope editor to allow you to really get inside a sound, live on stage! Rather than assigning knobs to these sound shapers, jump right in and directly tweak an on-screen representation of the envelope. This familiar, visual interface allows you to see exactly how you are changing the sound and you can easily add extra breakpoints with a simple double touch.

Faster set-up with the Alias feature

Duplicate a controller object that sends exactly the same information to your computer as the original with Alias. What are the benefits? It takes up less memory and is less time consuming than setting up a new object with identical characteristics. Manipulating the original can now control the same computer parameters but from different interface screens. Moving one will automatically update its “mirror image”.

Mouse and keyboard control

Still finding yourself reaching over to the computer during your live show? Not any more! Now Lemur’s objects can be used to remotely control the mouse cursor or computer keyboard.

Acute precision with the new Gesture object

The new Gesture object emulates a trackpad control with advanced gesture recognition and has three novel ways to interact with your sound. Pinch, Rotate or Trace your fingers to send different control messages to your computer.

Intuitive design with new LemurMenu object

It’s a new pop-up menu selection tool offering a list of items from which to choose from.

Easier interface design with JazzEditor

Improved customization of your interfaces is a reality with the new Jazzeditor. You now have the ability to easily drag objects from the new palette into the work area and make your interface visually stimulating with the new “color” picker.

Extended scripting abilities

In the JazzEditor, a new Multiline script pane opens up a whole new world of possibilities. You can now modify the physical behaviour, appearance or size of an object in real time. Add a ball to a Multiball object by touching a pad, zoom in on a fader for ultimate precision or modify a Text object content via MIDI or OSC. For Ableton users that means it is now possible to receive clip names and colours and display them on the Lemur. Any changes in your Live set are automatically reflected on the Lemur. Now you can really put that computer behind you and concentrate on your performance!

3 new objects for boosted interactivity: the Breakpoint, the Gesture and the LemurMenu objects.
New Tabbed function for the Container object: keep your projects simple and ergonomic.
New Alias “mirror” objects, for saving time and memory.
Mouse and Keyboard control for transmitting mouse movements and keyboard shortcuts.
Last but not least, the powerful Multiline script pane for real-time control of objects’attributes such as color, content and zoom.
