Control takes a turn.

The Lemur marks a new level of control. It combines great ergonomy for your hands and fingers with a brilliant modular graphic interface concept, pioneering design and unique multitouch sensor technology.

Put your hands on DAWs, virtual instruments, DJ/VJ and media applications or show control. The Lemur brings efficiency, precision and creativity to any production and performance context.

The Lemur provides plain sailing operation, visual feedback, and straightforward usability. Protocol independency and multitarget networking make the Lemur a perfect companion.

Make use of pre-built modules, interface presets and projects like Control Surface Emulations from the Template Library. Design the controller of your liking with the powerful JazzEditor.

Already unmatched and essential before, the Lemur now again sets the next level of control with Version 1.6 .

After taking the turn to complete workflow optimization with the last update, the new Version 1.6 does not only include a boost of added functionality, it also brings instant and smooth communication between the Lemur and the host computer providing simplification and out of the box usage.

With V1.6, the Lemur again beats all known MIDI controllers when it comes to control power. The new JazzDaemon background application launched with Version 1.6 supplies seamless integration by bridging the output of the Lemur to the available MIDI ports and applications handling MIDI on the host computer. The multiplicity of MIDI sources and destinations is handled by the JazzDeamon allowing bidirectional MIDI network distribution between one or several Lemurs and any kind of available MIDI application on one or several host computer.

The multiplicity of MIDI sources and destinations is handled by the JazzDeamon allowing bidirectional MIDI network distribution between one or several Lemurs and any kind of available MIDI application on one or several host computer. You now can control any of your MIDI applications easily with two Lemurs or more. Or in another example control two of your MIDI applications running on two different computers from a single Lemur.

For plain sailing operation the JazzDeamon autodetects the Lemur when connected to the host, and once installed, all settings and MIDI routings can be comfortably managed from the Lemurís touchscreen browsing through the new Settings Dialogue.

The new internal storage function added to version 1.6 perfectly matches the benefits available through the JazzDaemon and provides immediate availability and fast switching of projects from the Lemurís touch-screen, containing all interfaces and mappings. The new local Browser Dialogue with project view and interface preview facilitates easy managment of projects, templates and default settings from the Lemur. You can flag any project as your Startup Project, for immediate loading when the Lemur is turned on. Already available for download, the constantly growing library of templates for applications such as Ableton Live, Reaktor, Traktor DJ, Logic, Cubase and essential work tools like the Control Surface Emulation now come included as set factory presets.

Seriously adapting the usersí requests, Version 1.6 does not stop here, but it introduces a row of significant added functions and refinements.

The new Range Object is a highly customizable slider allowing intuitive scaling of a continous range. A neat tool for sample part looping or dynamic filter control.

The new Text Object allows efficient and effortless labelling of objects and is assignable to all other objects. Place it wherever you want, customize font size and alignment, profit from automatic multiline expansion. You can hide and show text dynamically and have it blink on demand : youíll never forget what this red slider does in your interface !

The new Custom Button Object is a powerful object that behaves as button or switch. It can be labelled with text in the same way as the Text Object or tagged with a broad range of bitmap symbols such as play, stop, pause and alike with different colors for on and off. The Custom Button Object brings clear visibility and graphical representation of function to any highly customized template.

Efficient desktop managment can be achieved by the revised object grouping integrated in the JazzEditor, now including horizontal and vertical distribution and alignment for faster grouping and organization of objects.

The Container Object has been enhanced with the new lock-unlock feature, locking or unlocking the inside layout for safer work in progress. As important second addition to the Container Object it is now possible to devide between the top and low level of parameters. The lock option now let interface designers hide complexity and give access to just the necessary set of parameters to tinker with. Focussing on the contextual parameters of all objects embedded in the Container, this feature permits to center on the relevant elements to control. You may lock the modules that you share on the User Area of the JazzMutant website and simplify the interface for the benefit of the user.

The Multiball Object, Fader Object, Knob Object and Multislider Object introduce the new grid function to divide their areas in equal steps and quantize their output, for maximum precision. An essential function for any production requirement such as surround design or critical performance state where it is neccessary to tap in exact positions. Add a grid to your knob object to emulate those Moog rotary filter selectors. Divide your Faders to instantly jump through a bank of 10 presets. A grid in your Multiball lets you toy with discrete sets of 2D positions, adding precision to your surround panning setup. The Grid Function does not only allow precise control, moreover it adds visual indicators to the objects so exact parameter positions can be anticipated.

The new objects garantee exact and optimized interface design. How then does this plentitude of parameter additions affect the user? All improvements were made with one simple goal in mind: maximum intuitive workflow melted with maximum efficiency. Where most conventional audio and media controllers fail, the Lemur starts to live: precision and creativity are no longer contradictions but side by side companions.

summary
New JazzDaemon background application for seamless integration, immediate communication and smooth network operation. New internal storage of modules, interfaces and projects at the Lemur including smart navigation.
New local browser dialogue with project view and interface pre-view facilitates easy managment and instant availability of projects, templates and modules from the Lemur. Adjustments of default settings and MIDI + OSC routings now directly possible from the Lemur.
3 new objects and improvement of all present Objects. Refinement of workflow with better visibilty and graphical representation of function. Hiding complexity and achieving simplicity.
New grid function for precise and clear control adding visual indicators for exact parameter positions.
