Lemur and NanoStudio
Presented by Gaz Williams and Nick Batt
This new Lemur app allows you to control DJ software, studio production software (DAWs), live electronic music software, stage lighting, and more – this is no everyday keyboard situation. Any software OR hardware that can otherwise be controlled by OSC/MINI is able to be controlled by this Lemur app. For those of you new to the platform, you’ll be able to access a user library of pre-made templates from top artists and unknowns from the Lemur community – artists from around the world are now sharing their own templates, strengthening the platform by the minute!
You’ve only to connect your iPad OR iPhone to your laptop over Wi-fi to work with a cross-platform (Mac OS X or Windows) interface builder to bring your experience to a whole new level, dragging and dropping with ease as you do so. You’re able to control up to 8 computers from one iPad if you wish, Lemur also supporting CoreMIDI allowing you to use such hardware interfaces as the iConnectMIDI or USB MINI interfaces to your heart’s content. Physics in objects are able to be controlled with physics models, allowing you to bounce, oscillate, and rebound across your tracks — objects including, but not limited to: Fader, Multislider, Range, Multiball, Knob, RingArea, Switches, Pads, Custom Button, and text.

Hated physics at school? Now you’ll love it! The behaviour of many Lemur objects can be affected by powerful and easy to use physical models which can make your controller bounce, rebound and oscillate. Make your controller come alive.
There’s absolutely no need to dive into scripting if you don’t want to. But if you’re the type who likes to get their hands dirty then there’s a powerful scripting engine inside Lemur. Harnessing this power will allow you to build extremely dynamic templates.
The Lemur editor, is a cross-platform (OS X/Windows) interface builder. It allows you to create new Lemur templates or edit existing ones. The drag & drop interface makes it easy to use. It allows you to create anything from the simplest set of faders to the most complex groovebox with no hassle.
Simply connect your iPad/iPhone to your laptop over Wi-Fi and make the connection! Lemur also supports CoreMIDI allowing you to use hardware interfaces such as Alesis’ iO Dock or the iConnectMIDI or class-compliant USB MIDI interfaces (with a camera connection kit). You can even control up to 8 computers from one iPad with Lemur!
