Lemur is the world's best MIDI/OSC controller for iOS. Benefiting from nearly 10 years of development, Lemur is synonymous with multitouch music control. All these major artists can't be wrong: Daft Punk. Björk, Plastikman, CHVRCHES, Glitch Mob, Sub Focus, Max Cooper, Barker & Baumecker, Orbital and many more.
Version 5.0 introduces the incredible new Canvas object and the Sequencer family of features with rock solid timing.
Canvas — Canvas is a brand new object that lets you script custom widgets with full multitouch support. The object is adapted from the HTML5 Canvas element, which means you can design widgets featuring complex shapes, animation, shadows, and transparency The Canvas object opens the door to a completely new Lemur experience, where the appearance and behaviour of objects can be designed to precisely match the demands of your project. Polygons, waveforms, circular objects and infinitely more are all possible with Canvas.
Sequencer — Lemur 5.0 introduces a family of new features for tight sequencing. This includes three new objects: StepNote, StepSwitch and StepSlider. Each of these provides a different flavour of sequencing and is ready to use right out of the box. The objects do the hard work for you, simple add them to your template and they are ready to control your MIDI instruments.
In App Editor — Design your templates on the fly, without a computer in sight. The In-App Editor, available on iPad only, makes multitouch control truly improvisatory by letting you shape your controller the same way you shape sounds. Virtually every function of the desktop editor application is now available through an intuitive system of iOS menus and widgets. Best of all – it’s easier to use than ever. This means a much smaller learning curve and an immediate initial experience. Any basic configuration, such as a typical bank of faders, can now be created with a few familiar taps and gestures. And any factory template can be adjusted quickly to suit your particular needs.
Skins — Lemur features three new skins, in addition to the classic look. Choose the look that fits your style and get inspired.
LiveControl 2 — Experience the ultimate Ableton Live controller, designed in partnership with master designer ST8. Improvise a riff on the Play page, then switch to the Sequencer page to edit the pattern. Choose a key and scale to guide your melodies and use Quick Chord to instantly create harmonies. Use the Modulate page to flawlessly map any parameter from any plugin to the MultiBall object and take advantage of Physics, LFOs and gesture recording. The Launch page gives you everything you would expect from a clip launcher, and more. We even integrated snapshots and morphing.
REQUIREMENT (for the Lemur Daemon):
- OS X (Intel only) 10.5+
- Windows (XP SP3 or 7 recommended)
* The In App Editor feature is accessible only on iPad devices.
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!

A Seriously Powerful Tool
Lemur is hands down the most powerful and useful tool for music production and live performance. TouchOSC is the only other app that really compares at all and it doesn't even come close to matching the power and functionality of Lemur. I have very few issues with the latest version of Lemur. Liine has done an amazing job updating and supporting the app. But new users beware. Lemur isn't for the faint of heart. If you have no prior experience with programming or scripting Lemur will be very challenging to pick up. You will be able to use most of the basic features without prior scripting experience and you can take advantage of the built in templates to get an idea of what Lemur is capable of but you won't be able to leverage the truly powerful features until you take the time to fully understand how scripting with Lemur works. But Lemur is an extremely worthwhile investment to anyone willing to take the time to learn all the ins and outs of this tool. TouchOSC is probably a good place to start if Lemur seems daunting to you. But I highly recommend this app to any serious producer/performer. You won't be disappointed if you know what you are getting into.
I wrote a long review but it didn't work out so... Yea this is the best thing out there IMHO. You will not regret it whether you work with midi and especially if you work with osc oh my god. I don't know what people are talking about, but if you have a little knowledge of MIDI controllers, lemur is no problem and way easy to set up. And with some more knowledge you can literally build any kind of production/performance interface you want, without having to learn C. Forum and Facebook page are very helpful, buy items! Best controller app without comparison
Control & Power
The last version was crashing repeatedly on an Air 2(iOS 8.x). So far I've been crash free since this update.
This is not an easy app to master, but it is worth the work. I say that as someone who is still a long way from mastering it. Virtually any MIDI or OSC control interface which can be imagined can be built in Lemur, no matter how complex, and at very little cost to system resources.
