MIDI Designer Pro 2 for the Transitioning Lemur User

End of Support – MDP2 continues active development and support, most recent update in July 2022
?  Active application help and user groups – MDP2 has active users, FB group, shared layouts, and developer provided support
? – Library of user shared layouts

There is no conversion capability to convert a Lemur application into a MDP2 layout.  But with MDP2 you can build a layout without any programming – place controls, adjust settings, connect, and take control of your devices.

When advanced control relationships are required:

  • Super / sub control relationships provide basic control interconnection
  • Named ticks provide scaling, arbitrary relationships, control down-sampling, and more, without writing any code
  • StreamByter provides advanced control relationships with straight-forward lexicon

MDP2 is not a one-for-one replacement for Lemur, but can cover many use cases.

Our user group and support team are standing by to help you transition.
