touch me in the morning: jazzmutant lemur

ok, seriously, fuck the iPad (smackdown coming soon). alright, they are kinda cool for an iTouche-maxi and, yes, i’d probably keep it if bill gates re-gifted one to me. but sweet jeebus, if i see just one more post about it “revolutionizing” computing i will puke out of my eyes. please, let us give some props to the originator: jazzmutant’s lemur. no, it won’t call home like E.T., there’s no 3G/WiFi (i.e. no facebook support) and it won’t replace your kindle BUT it is the slickest audio control surface you can get. all i can say about steve jobs is that he knows only to steal from the best.

so bitchez will complain about “only” (MU)MAX for ableton live, etc. support, but this is the silky-est, smoothy-est, touchy-est touch surface you have ever seen, and no soul-stealing/first born pimpin’ AT&T “provider” contract required. you want buttons, faders and dials in many pretty colors? no problem! all very drag and drop customizable and, additionally, all the supported templates are extremely well thought out with no programming knowledge required. especially, if you own ableton live, THIS is your touch surface of choice.

the only drawbacks? first, it seems you 11-fingered peeps out there will be unable to utilize your extra digits on this baby (cat paws, however, are supported; look for ned, world’s first kitty dj, spinning the mad notes at a club near you). but more importantly, it costs a sweet $1,999. ouch!

beautiful and intelligent, and you won’t be shocked by the 4 digit iTunes app store bill again! c’mon and get some!
