Lemur development has stopped and the app will be removed from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store on 01 September 2022. More info available on the Liine website.

Lemur is the world's best MIDI/OSC controller for iOS. Benefiting from nearly 10 years of development, Lemur is synonymous with multitouch music control. All these major artists can't be wrong: Daft Punk. Björk, Plastikman, CHVRCHES, Glitch Mob, Sub Focus, Max Cooper, Barker & Baumecker, Orbital and many more.

Version 5.0 introduces the incredible new Canvas object and the Sequencer family of features with rock solid timing.

Canvas — Canvas is a brand new object that lets you script custom widgets with full multitouch support. The object is adapted from the HTML5 Canvas element, which means you can design widgets featuring complex shapes, animation, shadows, and transparency The Canvas object opens the door to a completely new Lemur experience, where the appearance and behaviour of objects can be designed to precisely match the demands of your project. Polygons, waveforms, circular objects and infinitely more are all possible with Canvas.

Sequencer — Lemur 5.0 introduces a family of new features for tight sequencing. This includes three new objects: StepNote, StepSwitch and StepSlider. Each of these provides a different flavour of sequencing and is ready to use right out of the box. The objects do the hard work for you, simply add them to your template and they are ready to control your MIDI instruments.

In App Editor — Design your templates on the fly, without a computer in sight. The In-App Editor, available on iPad only, makes multitouch control truly improvisatory by letting you shape your controller the same way you shape sounds. Virtually every function of the desktop editor application is now available through an intuitive system of iOS menus and widgets. Best of all – it’s easier to use than ever. This means a much smaller learning curve and an immediate initial experience. Any basic configuration, such as a typical bank of faders, can now be created with a few familiar taps and gestures. And any factory template can be adjusted quickly to suit your particular needs.

Skins — Lemur features three new skins, in addition to the classic look. Choose the look that fits your style and get inspired.

LiveControl 2 — Experience the ultimate Ableton Live controller, designed in partnership with master designer ST8. Improvise a riff on the Play page, then switch to the Sequencer page to edit the pattern. Choose a key and scale to guide your melodies and use Quick Chord to instantly create harmonies. Use the Modulate page to flawlessly map any parameter from any plugin to the MultiBall object and take advantage of Physics, LFOs and gesture recording. The Launch page gives you everything you would expect from a clip launcher, and more. We even integrated snapshots and morphing.

REQUIREMENT (for the Lemur Daemon):
- OS X (Intel only) 10.5+
- Windows (XP SP3 or 7 recommended)

The In App Editor feature is accessible only on iPad devices.


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!

Having regular crashes lately

Ever since I stated using this App with any real complexity it seems to crash when I am saving templates now.

I use Composer a Tools Pro with OSCulator to control track focus for my instrument tracks.

It has been a solid application, but lately I have had pauses, and crashes.

Hope there are updates on the way...

Developer Response ,

Please update to 5.3.4 and get in touch if you are still having issues

Caution before buying.

As of April 2019 the developer’s website is not reachable and they have been gradually shutting parts of it down for some time - including their forum which they shut without notice a year or so ago. The help link in the app no longer works (there’s no chance of understanding the app without it), the editing tools which are pretty much essential to create your own interfaces, which was the strongest point of Lemur, seem to also be no longer available.

Lemur was a very useful and unique sequencing app. I hope I’m wrong but sadly it now appears to be dead.
