I’ve been experimenting with an app called Lemur. I have used this app previously as a MIDI controller for Ableton Live, but now I’m examining new possibilities that will allow me to use my iPad to construct and control samples of  urban soundscapes so I can emphasize different noises that are present in a variety of cities around the world. Even though the Lemur app is very user friendly and gives me the ability to construct button and slider configurations using my iPad, I find that the button and slider configuration software on my laptop is easier to control. Maybe it’s a matter of practice. I like to be able to swipe between windows and desktops to compare information quickly, which is not an option with the iPad. I’m trying a new note taking app called Notability – it is very similar to Good Notes, which I use on a daily basis, but Notability offers voice recordings connected to notes. I think this feature could be useful, but I need to test it out.
