A short video demonstrating a template I made for the Liine Lemur iOS App controlling Blamsoft’s Viking synth for Reason 6.5. An IK iRig MIDI was used to hook up the iPad to the PC.
The template can be downloaded from the Liine website User Library;
http://liine.net/en/products/lemur/premium/rheyne-jammer/ – Man of the moment Rheyne gives us a behind the scenes tour of his live electronic music improvisation setup. All the patches used in this video are available as a FREE download so you can play around and learn the magic.

A performance using the new “RheyneJammer” Lemur template, demonstrating how live looping can be mixed with the included instruments and audio clips. This video is part of a longer video on Liine’s YouTube channel which contains a tutorial on the template. The full version of the video can be seen here: http://youtu.be/-_ax_BQxPTw
The template is a combination of live looping with the included Ableton instruments as well as an audio input. In addition, there is a page dedicated to a new live jam never heard on YouTube or SoundCloud, which can be remixed with the included Ableton instruments. Everything, as well as the instruments, have already been mapped to the included Ableton Live Session. Audio input will be enabled as long as you have an audio interface with a line-in.
The only software requirements for this to work is Lemur on an iPad and the full version of Ableton Live. Wifi or wired MIDI is required to connect the iPad to a computer.

Live looping with Ableton Live, a DSI MoPho, an Akai MPD26 and APC20, a DJ TechTools MIDI Fighter 3D, and three iPads running PPG Wavegenerator, Lemur, and Animoog. An iConnectMIDI is sending and receiving MIDI notes from Animoog to MIDI clipslots in Ableton Live. Bass from the PPG app is being looped with Ableton’s looper plug-in, controlled by Lemur. All loops are recorded live, nothing was pre-recorded.

Native Instruments Massive (v1.3 or higher)
A live looping template for Lemur and Ableton Live 8 for a single audio channel, drums, a monophonic synth, and a polyphonic synth. Two Ableton Live projects are included in this download: one for owners of Native Instruments “Massive” and the other version works with the full download of Ableton Live 8. No other software or plugins are required. “Massive” is highly recommended. Version 1.3 (or higher) of Massive is required, or the patches will not load.
The Massive patches are included in the download package from Liine as separate files, and are the exact patches used in 90% of the “Live Jams” on this YouTube channel.
First tests hooking up Lemur to 225e and controlling various Buchla modules using CV
This is a video preview of a new free project for Native Instruments Reaktor + Jazzmutant Lemur users – Spacedrone mod.
The mod is designed to create all sorts of sci-fi sounds, atmospheres, soundscapes, drones and multimedia sounds, using the Lemur as a controller to create, mutate and manipulate sounds.
Based on the original Reaktor Spacedrone intrument with some new features to play with lemur.
- All the sounds of video generated with this new version of Spacedrone, created/performed from the lemur patch.
(Mixed at low level)
The instrument includes 100 presets +100 soundvariations created by:
- Richard Devine
- Antonio Blanca
- Miguel Isaza

Clip featuring a modular synthesizer jam with Sequencomat V3 – an 8 track 16 step MIDI sequencer in Max/MSP, with a touch control surface for the Jazzmutant Lemur. Sequencomat is based on the idea of traditional hardware step sequencers, but with an touchscreen control surface, and below that he tests out Sequencomat v3, running its own clock and sequencing a Nord Modular G1 on the first 4 channels and the G2 on the 4 following.

“A free granular electroacoustic Reaktor Collaboration between DevSnd, Rachmiel, TwistedTools & Antonio Blanca.
GrainCube is a four part granular processing instrument with numerous randomizing functions and modulation capabilities that allow for indescribable sonic mischief. The heart of GrainCube is a 400mb sample map of exclusive sample material from Richard Devine & Josh Kay of DevineSound. GrainCube is a collaboration between DevineSound & Rick Scott (Rachmiel), with additional programming and GUI tweaks by Igor Shilov of Twisted Tools. An additional version is also available for the Jazzmutant Lemur, re-imagined by Antonio Blanca.
Richard Devine is one of the most highly respected sound designers in our industry and here he gives away the result of an electroacoustic collaboration with RachMiel: a unique new Reaktor instrument. Not only that, but he’s created a special Lemur version alongside Lemur-programmer genuis Antonio Blanca for the JazzMutant community.
Richard Devine’s unique approach to sound is hugely in demand and the Lemur Cube’s two granular samplers are packed with an entire library of original sound content. The randomisations inside the Reaktor patch make it a sound sculpture piece that never plays the same sound twice. The in-depth control provided by the Lemur template is perfect for guiding the chaos.
The twisted textures provided by DevineCube are ideal to add soundscapes and sound fx to any project, or even throw in your own samples into the waveform window (define the samples range in the main window) and see what comes out!

If you haven´t done so already make sure to check out the Lemur from Jazz Mutants. The Lemur is a top of the range control surface for audio and media applications, that breaks from the prior art on several grounds. Its major innovation consists in its brilliant modular graphic interface concept and its exclusive multitouch sensor technology. The continiously growing palette of configurable graphic objects enables you to design made-to-measure interfaces by using the free available JazzEditor. This endows the Lemur with the unique and protocol independant capacity to adapt its behavior according to the application you are controlling: sequencers, modular synthesizers, virtual instruments, VJ software, 3D animation tools and light control.
The Lemur’s pioneering concept relies on JazzMutant’s unique patented multitouch technology. While conventional mice, touchscreens and tablets are limited to single contact points, the Lemur’s multi-touch capacity makes it possible to use all of your ten fingertips to accurately control multiple user-interface objects at once. The Lemur appeals to you straight away by its amazing responsiveness.
I wonder if they will get in trouble with Apple on this !!
Even Daft Punk enjoyed this at their latest gig on Feb 10th:
