Lemur Templates User Library

Rock solid standard
Major stadium-touring acts use Lemur on stage. The original hardware version was introduced to the public in 2004 and Lemur software now benefits from nearly 10 years of development. These are just two of the reasons Lemur is the name cited when talking about multitouch control.

Control anything
Lemur is a professional iOS controller app that doesn’t cut any corners. It lets you control anything, any way you want. Total flexibility means it can go as deep as you need it to. Lemur can control DJ software, live electronic music performance software, studio production software (DAWs), VJ software, visual synthesis software, stage lighting and more. In fact, any software or hardware that can be controlled by MIDI/OSC can be controlled by Lemur.

A controller unequalled
Lemur has often been imitated but never equalled. The physics engine, which can make faders and balls bounce, is entirely unique: allowing anything from a slight organic feel to absolutely chaotic modulations. Lemur goes deep: it comes with more than twice as many objects as comparable apps. Options for adjusting the look and feel of objects are vast, and connection to your gear is simple.

User Library
Access templates from top artists and the Lemur community. Some of these are actual templates used on stage, others are pure studio or creative tools. Share your own or simply browse the library and download whatever suits your needs. Liine has a Lemur community user library online. Sign up, tag, and trade Lemur templates. http://liine.net/en/community/user-library


– Objects
Fader; Multislider, Range; Multiball; Knob; RingArea; Switches; Pads; Custom Button; Container; Breakpoint; Leds; LemurMenu; Monitor; SignalScope; SurfaceLCD; Text

– Physics
Hated physics at school? Now you’ll love it! The behaviour of many Lemur objects can be affected by powerful and easy to use physical models which can make your controller bounce, rebound and oscillate. Make your controller come alive.

– Scripting
There’s absolutely no need to dive into scripting if you don’t want to. But if you’re the type who likes to get their hands dirty then there’s a powerful scripting engine inside Lemur. Harnessing this power will allow you to build extremely dynamic templates.

– Editor
The Lemur editor, is a cross-platform (OS X/Windows) interface builder. It allows you to create new Lemur templates or edit existing ones. The drag & drop interface makes it easy to use. It allows you to create anything from the simplest set of faders to the most complex groovebox with no hassle.

– Connectivity
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!

Musix iPad App

A unique instrument/control surface where you can learn every Major/Minor chord in 2 minutes. The hexagon note layout allows songwriters to discover new melodies and musical relations, as well, novices can learn how to play music. If you want more sounds than the built in instrument Musix offers Midi (DSMI) and OSC out to control anything you want.

“Anyone who loves music, regardless of skill level, owes it to themselves to experience Musix. Simply exploring the app will open musical doors you never knew existed.” – 148apps.com

NOTE: Musix is NOT meant to teach you how to play a piano! It is it’s own instrument that has many benefits over a piano. By playing you will learn real relations between notes and patterns within music.

The definitive isomorphic keyboard.
Musix is a fully-customizable multiple-layout isomorphic musical keyboard.

Each hexagon on the screen is a note, and surrounding hexagons are harmonically related.


– Learn how to play every major and minor chord in minutes
– Play along with your favorite song without practicing for years
– Learn one shape, play in any key
– Explore music by the relationship between notes
not by placement on an instrument
– Play along with your friends without being an expert
– Release the song in your head


✔ Different Key Sizes
✔ Slide the keys to show the notes you need
✔ Multiple Instrument Sounds
✔ OSC/Midi Support
– Inter-note expressivity
✔ Preset Layouts
✔ Create Your Own Layout (iPad only)
✔ Play along with your favourite songs


What this means is that once you have learned a pattern, say a chord
or a scale, that pattern is the same for all keys, even the dreaded
A-Flat! What’s more, you can learn to play melodies on a traditional
keyboard by playing them on the Musix keyboard and watching where the
sharps and flats go.

Songwriters benefit by discovering new melodies and musical
relationships. Novices find it easy to learn to play. Experienced
musicians are rewarded with an intuitive interface.

There are many isomorphic keyboards out there, from concertinas,
accordions, and “jammers” (which use the wicki-hayden layout) to
harmonic-table keyboards and more. You can have them all in one
application, and more besides.

Hexagonal isomorphic keyboards are defined by the harmonic
relationship between the keys. You can define the relationship in two
directions, say a major third and a minor third, and the third
direction is the difference of these two intervals (in this case, a

Musix comes with a set of built-in layouts which use different
harmonic relationships between the notes. Each layout has its own
advantages and disadvantages. For example, the harmonic table layout
allows you to play a major or minor chord with one finger, by
touching at the intersection of any three hexagons. The Wicki-Hayden
layout puts all the white keys together. Try them all and find one
that works for you.

Musix has six real-time FM-synthesized instrument sounds. No wavetables
here. Each note sound is synthesized on-the-fly, meaning that you get
the full richness of bass and brightness of treble that the ipad
speaker or your headphones can generate.

You can change the size of the keys to fit your fingers and your
dexterity – start practicing with epic-sized keys and as you get
better you can make the keys smaller to give you more notes on the
screen. Keyboard layouts are fully customizable – create your own
isomorphic keyboard centred on any note. Remove the note labels for a
clean look.

Musix is available for $0.99


HexaChrom For iPad

HexaChrom For iPad

Looking for a different musical approach to controlling your synths over WiFi? Try this out.

HexaChrome by Somascape

HexaChrom turns your iPad into a musical performance controller, enabling you to play your OSC or MIDI (#) electronic musical instruments — virtual instruments running on a laptop/desktop computer, or hardware MIDI instruments.

HexaChrom takes an alternative approach to the majority of MIDI keyboard controllers in that it uses an isometric note layout, where the notes are presented as a hexagonal matrix of keys. There are many such isometric layouts, though HexaChrom uses the Harmonic Table layout, which is a modern variation of the Tonnetz (tone network), devised by the famous mathematician Euler.

This note layout has particularly useful musical intervals between adjacent keys, ie along the 3 major axes : minor thirds, major thirds and perfect fifths. In the Western musical tradition, the intervals of the major and minor thirds dominate chordal structures. Consequently, this layout offers a number of advantages over the more conventional clavier-style keyboards : consistent chord shapes irrespective of key, the ability to span several octaves with one hand, and to play basic major or minor triads with a single finger. Together resulting in an easier learning curve.

It also encourages the user to approach music differently, just as the different note layouts of pianos and guitars engender different playing styles.

(#) HexaChrom can send MIDI data either via the OSC protocol (wirelessly), or via CoreMIDI (wired or wirelessly). When using OSC to control MIDI devices (whether hardware or software based) you will need to translate the OSC messages to MIDI, using either additional software (eg OSCulator on a Mac) or hardware (Jabrudian’s Missing Link).

HexaChrom Screenshot


– Isometric ‘harmonic table’ note layout keyboard, based on a 52-note matrix (just over 4 octaves).

– Play simple chords with a single finger.

– Consistent chord shapes irrespective of root key.

– Octave transposition provides a total span of just over 7 octaves.

– Dual view : Portrait mode offers a single 52-note matrix (easy play); Landscape mode has a 104-note dual matrix, with optional split channel operation.

– Assignable controllers (sliders and buttons).

– Control any software or hardware MIDI synthesizer, sampler, drum machine, etc. using OSC or MIDI protocols (additional software and/or hardware is required – see Requirements).

– OSC (wireless) support for both the ‘M’ data type (as used by OSCulator), and the Missing Link’s proprietary message format. With automatic connection using Bonjour, or manual connection when Bonjour is not an option.

– CoreMIDI support (wireless or wired).

– Multitouch interface.

– iOS 4 multitasking compliant.


– iPad running iOS 3.2 or later (4.2 is required for wired MIDI, whilst 4.3 is required for wireless MIDI).
– To use wired MIDI : A CoreMIDI compliant MIDI interface (eg Yamaha’s i-MX1), or Apple’s Camera Connection Kit along with a class compliant USB-MIDI interface.
– To use wireless MIDI : a wireless network with access to a MIDI Server.
– To use OSC : a wireless network with access to an OSC Server, eg OSCulator or a Missing Link device.
– A Mac running OS X 10.4 or later (if using OSCulator or wireless MIDI).

TouchOSC iPad iPhone iPod Touch Control Surface

TouchOSC is a modular OSC and MIDI control surface for iPhone / iPod Touch / iPad.

It supports sending and receiving Open Sound Control messages over a Wi-Fi network using the UDP protocol and supports both CoreMIDI and the Line 6 MIDI Mobilizer interfaces for sending and receiving MIDI messages.

The application allows to remote control and receive feedback from software and hardware that implement the OSC or MIDI protocols such as Apple Logic Pro/Express, Renoise, Pure Data, Max/MSP/Jitter, Max for Live, OSCulator, VDMX, Resolume Avenue 3, Modul8, Plogue Bidule, Reaktor, Quartz Composer, Vixid VJX16-4, Supercollider, FAW Circle, vvvv, Derivative TouchDesigner, Isadora and many others.

The interface provides a number of different touch controls to send and receive messages:

Faders / Rotary controls / Encoder controls / Push buttons / Toggle buttons / XY pads / Multi-faders / Multi-push / Multi-toggles / Multi-xy pads / LEDs / Labels / Time & battery displays

Additionally the program can send Accelerometer data. The application comes with example default layouts and completely custom layouts can be constructed using the free TouchOSC Editor application.
