In addition, it is one of the first controllers that complies with the blazing fast OpenSoundControl (OSC) protocol, an emerging network-based standard
for controllers that has significant advantages over MIDI: low latency, higher data capacity, 32-bit numerical precision and easy set-up. Supported by
an emerging number of applications, this protocol opens a new era in the field of real-time control and human-machine interfaces. Finally a controller
that thinks ahead and is able to adapt with the ever-changing landscape.
Connect numerous computers and Lemurs on a local area network and make
them all dance together. Faster data flow means seamless communication.
The Lemur's fast Ethernet interface ensures a data flow hundreds of times
faster than your average MIDI interface. The Lemur has a built in 100BaseT
interface, which means that the Lemur is capable of exchanging thousands
of control messages at once with your application.
The Lemur unveils itself as the coveted controller that applications such
as Reaktor, Max/MSP, Audiomulch, SuperCollider, Pure Data or Bidule have
been drooling over for ages. With most of this software being natively OSC
compliant, you will take advantage of the versatility of the Lemur. With the
slide of one finger you can tweak the 32 bands of a vocoder, control the
most complex polyphonic granular synthesizer, or even generate crazy
rhythmic patterns with the MultiSlider.
The Lemur is a priceless companion when communicating with loop based
sequencers such as Ableton Live: enjoy triggering clips with switches,
grouping several tracks together, or controlling filters with bi-dimensional
objects, generating any type of LFO for effect auto-driving. Turn your
Imagination into reality with the tip of your fingers.
JazzDaemon is a background application running on your host computer
that handles MIDI communication between the Lemur and any number of
MIDI applications or devices connected to your host computer. This single
interface allows you to control the track levels of your sequencer with one
hand while playing your hardware sampler or virtual instrument with the
other. Multi-tasking at its finest!
