Module summary

This elective is designed for CFT & CFO students who want to speed up their workflow. Lemur is undoubtedly the most powerful MIDI controller that is out there (still!). Due to it’s own scripting language it’s the perfect and most flexible addition to your DAW of choice. It doesn’t only offer an infinite amount of MIDI-sliders, buttons and XY-fields used for music production, but also speeds up your workflow by a multiple. Get more inspired by using Lemur and don’t ever ever ever ever remember shortcuts or buy expensive MIDI-gear for your home studio.
There’s a golden rule: A magician never explains his trick.
But this trick is quite easy.
The lecturer will guide you into the abyss of remote controlling so even you can become a magician that doesn’t want to stop playing with Lemurs. *Uhah-ah-ah-ah“.
