Now I only have to find out if you could change layouts with it mid-live and how does it feel.]]>
I jail broke my Ipad so this app is a freebie for me
Not very helpful mate, but thanks]]>
- It's really cool that...
- You get to design your workspace/template (Place knobs/faders/switches/etc. wherever you want, choose the color, size, all of that)
-And you get to do it from within the app too, which is really convenient, instead of having to design a template on your computer and then have to download it and then blah blah you know what I mean.
- You can control everything with the touch of your fingers (I don't know how else to describe this so here's an example: Moving the EQ with your fingers instead of having to move it with knobs)
(EDIT - In other words, all I'm saying here is that you can use the touch screen on the iPad to do things that you can't with most midi controllers
- From what I know, you can do everything on the iPad app that you could do on a Jazzmutant Lemur
- It can be tricky when trying to figure out how to correctly set up mapping the template in Lemur to Ableton Live (From what I remember, it's not just midi mapping various knobs in the app to Ableton, you have to make certain imputs and outputs in Lemur or something like that...Look it up, I haven't used it in a while)
- It gets annoying when setting it up
- Keep in mind that you need WIFI and an app on Lemur's website: Lemur Deamon. Lemur Deamon is free but still, keep in mind that (unfortunately) it's not something that you can set up in a few seconds.
-It's $25 (But it's actually not that bad considering all of the cool things you can do with Lemur, look it up)
- It doesn't appear as powerful as a Jazzmutant Lemur
- It sucks to say this, but the Jazzmutant Lemur looks much more professional than using an app on the iPad (but at the same time, you may not care about that)
Overall, it's a really nice app (especially for controlling effects in Ableton Live), I would recommend it.
For me, it's not for playing notes: It's more for launching samples, play with effects and more just because of the latency.
Plus, at everytime, you have to install a driver for every app, and it's very experimental sometimes.
Maybe Lemur is something awesome, but the iPad is not perfect for some features.
(the apps i've tried are: LIVEKONTROL, more android apps than I forgot the name)
