Tablet Remote (Lemur)

Templates

Spat Revolution 20.12 brings 3 new Lemur templates that have been created to bring some iOS and Android remotes into your workflows. They can be used as-is, but can be modified in the editor software (Lemur editor).

Spat_Remote - 2020 SR Beta - Spat Revolution is a great one as it combines the actual source control page and controls for the newly introduced snapshots.

Spat_Snapshot - 2020 SR Beta - Spat Revolution is a dedicated Snapshot control page.

Spat_Multitouch - 2020 SR Beta - Spat Revolution is a Multitouch remote for up to 8 sources!

You will need LEMUR iOS or Android software to be able to use these templates. Templates are providing for standard iPad and an iPad Pro version. Other resolutions will need customization using the Lemur editor. For more information on Lemur editor, please read the Lemur User Guide.

Advice: For most reliable remote control from tablet devices, it is recommended to hardwire your table device to your system. Some adapters offer ethernet connectivity and in some cases, power as well. This way your device can remain 100% charged all the time and will have a solid ethernet connection to make sure you can rely on this remote for the critical times (But yes it does work more than fine in Wi-Fi too!). Multiple tablet devices can mean building yourself a control station!

Loading the templates

Although some will take the road of using Lemur editor to open these and push them to their devices, it can be as simple as opening them directly from your tablet. As an example, in iOS, once you are trying to open the file (from the above download link or from an email attachment), simply click on the top right button to get send options. Reach the copy to Lemur. You do have to have Lemur installed first.

The patch will now open in Lemur software. You can save it in your device, clicking on the wheel on the top right.

Setting up OSC targets

The simple step to use it with Spat Revolution is to configure (one time) your OSC Targets, in this case, Spat Revolution. To configure the OSC address and port in Lemur, click on the wheel on the right top, then on “More Settings”.

In OSC Targets, you can see the IP Address of your actual remote device. (Lemur IP: x.x.x.x). The port is locked by default at 8000.

OSC 0 - OSC 7 are actual targets. You can add up to 8 OSC targets. An example of this could be to target 2 Spat Revolution for main and back up hardware.

As of Spat Revolution 20.12, input Lemur and output Lemur presets are available in the OSC Connection section. Port are by default 8000 for input and output.

From the above example, the Lemur IP is 192.168.2.5 Port 8000. And we have set the OSC target OSC 0 to the Spat computer IP Adress 192.168.43.10 with port number 53700.

Setting OSC connections in Spat

The first step is to go to the Spat Preferences and Enable OSC. You then need to set up an OSC port and host route, in order to connect with Spat plug-ins via OSC. The port and host should match that of the Lemur app.

    • Only Selected Sources: recall only parameters for sources currently selected.

This patch allows 8 different Remotes to control Spat Revolution’s sources. You have access to the principal parameters, for each source. To choose the source you want to control, touch on the button next to ‘Sources’. A panel will appear with a certain number of sources and a -1 button. This last control (-1) is the actual selection (or multi-selection) on Spat Revolution.

This patch allows you to control the position of 8 sources at the same time, with different fingers.

Like the 8Remote patch, you can edit some variables to customize the patch. To edit the number of sources you want to show, adapt the variable ‘numberSources’ on the Lemur editor. To edit the sources’ names, adapt the variable ‘listSources’ in the Lemur editor, respecting the following format: {‘nameSource1’, ‘nameSource2’, ‘nameSource3’} etc.
