Using Lemur with Gig Performer

Using Lemur with Gig Performer

Gig Performer has a sophisticated OSC implementation that can be used for a variety of purposes, one of which is to allow bidirectional control with an iPad running a control surface such as Lemur or TouchOSC (Using Touch OSC with Gig Performer).

To help you get started, here is a Lemur template for Gig Performer 3, which I originally created to use with my bands. (You are of course free to modify this to suit your own needs. This particular template leverages the scripting functionality of Lemur so that only knobs or sliders that are actually needed for a particular rackspace are visible in Lemur. For my needs, I found this more beneficial than having all possible controls appear in Lemur when you only need two or three at a time.

(NB – if you are using Gig Performer 2, then you can use this older template which does not support GP3’s new song and setlists features.)

It also includes a button that can be used for Tap Tempo purposes, very useful if you have some kind of echo plugin where you want the delays to fit the tempo of your song.

There are also a couple of controls for turning on Gig Performer’s guitar tuner. As a keyboard player I don’t really need this but I wanted users to be able to see how it’s done.

Please note that these scripts are not officially supported by Deskew Technologies. If you have questions about Lemur scripting, there is a brief Lemur scripting tutorial on liine’s website and you can obviously reach out to them or their user community as well.
