What is Lemur?
Lemur is a very advanced application that lets you build custom OSC and MIDI controller interfaces using a powerful networking protocol implemented by your favorite digital audio work stations. These interfaces have numerous applications from live performance to writing and, now, mixing. It runs on both iOS and Android, allowing users of both platforms to share interfaces and run in tandem.
What is the LTI Lemur Touch Interface?
“LTI” is Harrison’s Lemur interface layout, developed in-house as a remote control surface for Mixbus, using the Lemur application.
Because the LTI uses the Lemur editor application, the Harrison LTI controller layout may be modified by you, the end-user.
Here are some instructions for use:
- If you haven’t already, purchase the Lemur application from your relevant App Store. (Android and iOS are both supported,)
- Install the application and make sure it runs correctly on your device
(Generally speaking, we wouldn’t recommend running the LTI on a screen with a resolution lower than: 1024×768)
- Go to the Lemur downloads page and download the editor application to your computer or laptop.
- Install the application to your computer and then open the application.
- Download the LTI template here and then open it in the editor. It should look a lot like this:
- Open up the Lemur application on your device and then connect your device to the template editor of your computer using the play button at the top right of the editor and then verify that it has loaded correctly on your tablet. This works over WIFI ONLY. You should see a connection like this:
- In Mixbus, go to Edit->Preferences->Control Surfaces and enable OSC via the check-box. Additionally, make sure that “Port Mode:” is set to Auto Reply and not Manual Mode.
- On your lemur application, open up the settings and make sure that OSC 0: points your computer’s private wifi address with the port of 3819.
- Finally, Press the master connect (the big purple on on the connections interface) button and you should see the ring around the button start to flash, like a heartbeat. This indicates that Mixbus is sending signals back to the Lemur interface.
