At the AES 2006 convention in San Francisco, Cycling ’74 demonstrated Version 1.5 software for the JazzMutant Lemur hardware control surface. The update is available to all current Lemur customers as a download. New software features in V. 1.5 allow the Lemur to control many popular DAWs, including Apple Computer Logic, MOTU Digital Performer, Ableton Live and Steinberg Cubase.
V. 1.5 features an improved JazzEditor that provides more efficient design tools, extended MIDI control capabilities and improved OSC (Open Sound Control) communication. Audio software applications can update the user interface display while the Lemur’s proprietary LCD touchscreen surface is in use, allowing the Lemur to function as a flexible two-way control surface.
