Since its conception, the iPad has always had the potential to be a great mobile controller. This potential is finally coming to fruition, thanks to companies like Liine who are converting their legendary hardware into an iOS format.
The Lemur is a welcomed addition to the world of iOS. It draws on a lot of traits that make the hardware so popular. Any software or hardware that can be controlled by MIDI/OSC can be controlled by Lemur. This makes it an extremely powerful tool for DJ’s, producers, and engineers a like.
Lemur has core MIDI support and can even let you control up to 8 computers at one time. Template creation and sharing are also valuable assets to this program.
With this app you have the ability to control anything you want – so long as it’s MIDI/ OSC compliant. The thing that catches us off guard is the $50 price tag, which makes it one of the most expensive music apps we’ve come across. While it may be an app of great detail, there are a lot of other controller apps that only cost a fraction of the price.
Be sure to do your research and make sure this is a ‘must have’ before you drop the big bucks!
