At Muskimesse 2007, JazzMutant introduced the Dexter DAW Controller—a Lemur-style, multitouch control surface that mimics the look of your DAW's mixer and lets you control it by touching its user interface on Dexter's screen. In addition, Jazzmutant announced version 1.6 for the Lemur multitouch surface controller.
Dexter DAW Controller
Designed for Steinberg, Cakewalk, and Apple DAWS, Dexter provides a hands-on control surface for your DAW's mixer. It features color coding for each track's current state (active, muted, record-enable, soloed, and so forth); a Track Edit mode that overviews all of the parameters for each channel, including a graphical EQ display, effects editing, bus sends, and surround panning; zoomable controllers for zooming in and out on the faders you want to focus on; and a surround panner that provides live monitoring for up to eight channel positions at a time.
You can move sound sources by touching the screen and physically moving them where you want; according to the manufacturer, rotating sound sources and manipulating the panner in Dexter is just like spinning vinyl.
The updated Lemur features a JazzDaemon background application; internal storage of modules, interfaces, and projects; a local browser dialogue with project view and interface preview; default settings and MIDI + OSC routings now operable from the Lemur directly; a customizable slider called a Range Object; a Text Object for labeling and identifying all objects; a new lock-unlock feature for the Container Object; the availability of library templates as factory presets; improved grid function; and much more.
