JazzMutant Sneaks Mu – Max For Live Controller
Too Little, Too Late?
The mad scientists at JazzMutant are sneaking Mu, a new Max For Live MIDI controller for Ableton Live that unleashes the full feature-set of the Lemur platform. The problem for this ground-breaking French company is: too little, too late?
Well, it certainly isn’t too little, since you can tell from the short demo (see below) that there’s a lot of power under the hood (that will nicely evolve over time), but it may be just too late for Mu to really gain traction outside of JazzMutant’s core users.
The reason is simply with many other very cost effective controllers now available for Ableton Live, such as the Novation Launchpad and the Akai APC40 to name just a couple, can a product like the Mu really compete anymore in the market with it’s high entry fee?
