If you go to this page...

http://www.jazzmutant.com/download-lemur-soft/

...and click on the link for, eg, JazzEditor WinXP Download, you get an error.

http://jazzmutant.com/download/JazzEditor_V2.0.3.zip

However, if you search for this URL in the Wayback Machine, you can find it from an archive of the 1st April 2015.

https://web.archive.org/web/20150401173 ... V2.0.3.zip

This also works for some of the other downloads like Mu.

https://web.archive.org/web/20150401172 ... u_V1.0.zip

I'm not sure if "Lemur install" is the same software that can be found here:

https://liine.net/en/downloads/lemur

Some of this stuff, like "MIDI Yoke" and "Maple Virtual MIDI Cable" are third-party products you can search for.

Brilliant! I didn't know the Wayback Machine stored binaries as well as HTML. A very neat resource.

Enjoy...incidentally I came across this page while I was looking, in case it's useful.

https://liine.net/en/community/user-library/

(It looks like development for the original hardware was suspended in 2010, with the last firmware version being 2.03. Dunno whether it'll still be possible to update it, which was apparently done by running some program on the connected PC. I don't know whether any of those templates will be compatible, but if you click on the "legacy" category and sort by oldest first, there might be some that will work.)

The Liine editor (for the iOS version) also works with the "Real" Lemur/Dexter as well, or it did the last time I tried it.

I was one of the original users of the Lemur - it was an amazing device (though it had its limitations) and I think it was a great shame that Jazzmutant abandoned it, though it's good to see it appear on the app store in software form.

Glad the OP got the editor binary. On the Mac (not sure about the PC) you also need to set up the Jazzmutant MIDI daemon to provide the virtual MIDI interfaces for the Lemur (the Lemur does all its comms over Ethernet so the daemon abstracts this to a MIDI interface for the rest of the world to interact with).

Yeah, it was a shame it all went down the pan.

I got the Dexter update which I think was 400 quid and it never worked properly and never got fixed, it had great promise but by then I think the cash wasn't coming in.

I compare the Lemur in my mind to the Genoqs sequencers, should have taken the world by storm but arsed it up.

I got that Dexter update too - what a waste of money, although I don't think I paid full whack. Jazzmutant, (or maybe their parent company, I'm unclear) decided they wanted to pursue the touchscreen tech in non-musical ways and in their 'so long and thanks for all the fish' message they 'thanked' the users for enabling them to get to the point that they could go do that.

Then they abruptly cut all the tubes and left a budding ecosystem to wither and die. They didn't even open-source the software to let folks go do their own thing with it - I'd have been all over that. I was part of that ecosystem - I'd created a number of (free) templates in the Jazzutant template market which did some powerful modulation using the physics engine in the Lemur.

I'd also kicked off a Yamaha Motif XS voice/performance editor project with a bunch of realtime performance features using Max/MSP and the Lemur. I was even in touch with management at Yamaha about it at the time, and they were pretty interested in exploring it further, to the point they were sending me internal documentation on the MIDI sysex implementation in the XS which was way more interesting than the stuff published in the manuals.

It wasn't perfected when the rug got swept out from under my feet but it was complete enough to be useful, looked really nice and with an update or two to the Lemur firmware (which we were expecting) it would have been really cool.

The whole debacle was shocking - I felt betrayed, and I know I wasn't the only one to take it hard. The Lemur had so much potential. I know it's now available on the apple app-store but an i-pad is a world away from the ruggedised chassis and industrial quality touchscreen that contained the Lemur innards, and I opted out of the apple closed-circuit world a while back.

After it had been gathering dust on a shelf for years I gave my Lemur to a mate who does homebrew electronic projects and such, as I felt he could make something new out of it. I couldn't bear to turn it on any more :(

Mines sitting on a shelf, I occasionally look at it and think of connecting it up again but then I think that there's is a good reason it is on the shelf along with the Euphonix controller that is next to it!
