I am very excited about this one, I'm always looking for a new excuse to play with Granular, but this is only available for iPads running iOS 6! I spoke with the developer about the iOS 6 requirement this morning, and he says it was a mistake in the version sent to Apple. He intends on adding iOS 5 support!

In the meantime here is a great demo video showing off a lot of the features.

Jam Like Rheyne with Rheyne Jammer for Lemur

Liine has released Rheyne's Lemur template as a "Premium Content", but it is totally free on their website for registered users. Liine also conducted an interview with Rheyne, which highlights his background, influences and plans for the future.

Rheyne is often featured here for his amazing sets that combine loops from apps, hardware, and software synthesizers. Now you can take a crack at making your own with his Lemur-based workflow.

Rheyne has been getting serious attention in the music tech underground recently through his series of improvised jams on Youtube. It's no surprise why, really. Rheyne is playing real live electronic music. That means he's improvising beats and melodies, resampling himself and tweaking the results. He was kind enough to prepare this demo set so we could share this with everybody. At a time when many performers are happy to simply press play, Rheyne's approach is a breath of fresh air. He has a serious background playing with bands, and this influence is clear in his approach to producing and playing.

You'll need Ableton Live to make use of this, but the download includes an Ableton session that will get you up and running in a hurry.

There is even a nice tutorial video, produced by Rheyne, so you can hear how it is meant to work from the man himself.

Buy Lemur on iTunes: $24.99
