Bringing its multi-touch control to the iPad and iPhone, Lemur has moved outside the hardware approach that took it into the studios of Daft Punk, Deadmau5, Richie Hawtin, Ryuichi Sakamoto and Björk.

Connected via Wi-Fi or USB Midi, Lemur allows control of multiple elements of a music through existing templates or those created with its drag-and-drop editor.

With the original hardware version introduced in 2004, the iOS controller app can control DJ software, live electronic music performance software, studio production software (DAWs), VJ software, visual synthesis software and stage lighting – any software or hardware that can be controlled by Midi or OSC can be controlled by Lemur.

The company claims that its physics engine (which can make faders and balls bounce) allows ‘anything from a slight organic feel to absolutely chaotic modulations’.



· Objects: Lemur uses Objects for building templates.
· Physics: The behaviour of many Lemur objects can be affected by powerful physical models that can make a controller bounce, rebound and oscillate.
· Scripting: A scripting engine allows coding acces to templates.
· Editor: A cross-platform (OS-X/Windows) interface builder allows to be built or edited.
· Connectivity: Connect iPad/iPhone to laptop over Wi-Fi and make the connection. Lemur supports USB Midi, allowing use of hardware interfaces such as Alesis’ iO Dock, iConnect Midi or any other class compliant device with the camera connection kit. Up to eight computers can be controlled from one iPad.

Available on the iTunes App Store for US$49.99/€39.99/£29.99. Lemur hardware once cost more than €2,000.
