Cut-Up Text Writer

Liptikl has evolved - it's now Wotja (Windows/macOS/iOS/Android) - See the FAQ

Hitting writer's block? Then get Liptikl and use its powerful cut-up technique to quickly help create novel text ideas for lyrics, poetry, haikus, stories etc.

Users say of Liptikl: "Brion Gysin, William S. Burroughs, BOWIE! This is the closest "cut & Paste" writing generator I've ever been able to find.", "I used Liptikl extensively while writing lyrics for my last album and found it incredibly useful", "Liptikl is the key to unlocking word combinations and mental scenery", "Ideas fall from the sky with this app. No more writers block on lyrics!"

What you can do with Liptikl
  • Help unblock writer's block
  • Stimulate creative writing and easily come up with new and exciting word arrangements
  • Get more ideas for music or rap lyrics, poems, copy or ads etc.
  • Generate unusual, obscure, non-obvious, ambiguous and unexpected results
  • Use up to 5 different bodies of text for your word pool
  • Randomise only the words you want to, lock the others
  • Use on-screen cut-up alternatives to quickly change single words
  • Use the liptikl files you make in Liptikl for iOS, Mac or Windows*

* Relevent app(s) required; available for purchase separately

How it Works

Liptikl quickly generates a random cut-up from a pool of words. This pool can include words from up to 5 user entered text fields. When creating a cut-up words can also be blended in from an optional user word library and customisable Liptikl Word Library.

For your cut-up you get to choose how many lines and how many words per line you want in it and whether you want Liptikl to attempt End of Line (EOL) rhyming.

Once an initial cut-up has been created you can continue to iterate cut-ups until you are happy. You can word-by-word lock down what you really like.

Liptikl's fast, effective, iterative approach is a great way to come up with fresh and exciting word associations to explore. It could be just what you are looking for to spark something original and different!

EXAMPLE USAGE

# Try mixing a Shakespeare sonnet with some Tolstoy and then add in some short news story or headline.

# Try letting Liptikl create from scratch a cut-up from the editable default word bank, lock words or change words, iterate and then see where the idea takes you.

Here is just one example of a short cut-up created with Liptikl:

Take note my friend,
Even though time flies,
Your halo might slip,
And forever never arrives.

Reviews

Magazines

"The delightfully-named Liptikl provides a simple interface into which you enter words or phrases. The software then generates a stream of combinations in the meter of choice that can then be edited and recombined to your liking."

"Ideas fall from the sky with this app. No more writers block on lyrics!"

rhanline

"Liptikl is software at it's finest; an intuitive collaborator in the creative process. It's word combinations are inspiring and entertaining and it is adding fun back into the lyric writing process for me and the writers I work with."

Roy Campanella III

"I use Liptikl every other day for something, it has become an essential component of my personal artistic procedure."

Loopy C

"I'm an artist, and I've been playing around with Liptikl as a way to generate ideas for sculptures. Not so much descriptions but word-images that trigger a visual image for me. I find Liptikl very useful - and fun."

Johnna Klukas

"Liptikl is the key to unlocking word combinations and mental scenery, which lead one down interesting paths, often unearthing shiny lyric-stones along the way."

Lance Linimon

"... a writer can always use a new source of serendipitous word combinations. You may find yourself getting inspired."

FAQ - Liptikl

General

There will be no Liptikl 3 and no further Liptikl 2 updates, sorry.

Get Wotja instead which can open and play Liptikl files. Wotja is the worthy successsor to Liptikl and is the one app/brand we will be taking forwards and giving all our development focus to.

See:

Background

Liptikl 2 apps for mobile and desktop were released March 2016 and many updates followed.

In 2017, however, we took a tough decision that in order to secure a future for a forward looking app that can open Liptikl files - Wotja - all app development work needed to move to that. All development on Liptikl therefore ceased.

If you could do something in Liptikl 2 then you can generally do it (and a lot more besides) in Wotja.

What was Liptikl?

It was a cut-up text generator branded "Liptikl".

It principally comprised a set of user interfaces (UI) to both an integrated text engine (ITE 2) and that let you export files (.liptikl files).

Although Liptikl 2 is now efectively frozen we expect current builds should continue to work just fine for a long time (it always remains possible that future OS or 3rd Party software changes might cause issues, however).

What is Wotja?

Wotja is the consolidation of Noatikl, Mixtikl, Liptikl and Tiklbox into one app, branded Wotja. It can load and open content created by them and is the path forward for them. It includes new features and content, too.

As with the apps above, it comprises a set of user interfaces (UI) to both our latest generation integrated generative music engine (IME 5) and sound engine (ISE 5) and it lets you export files (.wotja / .wotjabox / .noatikl / .mixtikl).

We are in no way abandoning the technologies and capabilities that were in the Liptikl branded apps, but on all platforms their future now lies in our new app branded Wotja.

See also this FAQ - Why the big changes with Wotja?.

Wotja (and soon Wotja X) is already a good deal more powerful than Liptikl as it incorporates the capabilities of Liptikl, Mixtikl, Noatikl and Tiklbox.

At present the main new Wotja parameters are as follows.

Selected New App Features / Capabilities in Wotja (not in Noatikl 3, Mixtikl 7, Liptikl 2):

  • 4 New Template Paks
    • Wotja includes the new WJ4 TTM Players 'Text to Music' Template Pak as well as the WJ4 BP1, WJ4 BP2 and WJ5 BP3 Backings Template Paks. The gorgeous templates in these paks can be previewed in the Wotja template list.
  • Album / Playlist Player
    • This major new feature allows you to create playlists/album of up to 20 mixes that play in sequential or shuffle mode. Playlist was never possible before and it is perfect for installations. Your mixes can be as custom as you want and, of course, use custom SoundFonts (SF2) (see this FAQ) and even WAV/Ogg files (see Paks). This feature is accompanied by two new file formats (.wotjalist, .wotjabox).
  • Automatic Albums with new mix icons
    • This new facility makes it a snap to create a collection of random new mixes with TTM/cut-up text and colourful icons. This is the fastest way to create/check out new mixes you want to keep and you can export them for later editing/customisation.
  • More Randomization options
    • To allow more control over the content you mix together in randomly generated mixes we have both expanded the granularity of randomization options available, e.g. Template list tagging (Content) and how/where it can be accessed/deployed in the Mix mode. We have also added a whole new set of Album randomization settings.
  • Text-to-Music melody generation
    • This is a very powerful feature that we will continue developing and extending. Rather than generating patterns and/or having to deep dive into pattern syntax, you can just now enter some text and have the Text-to-Music parameters create a seed pattern for you; just change the text for a new pattern! There are a raft of parameters to play with to define how the melody is generated, i.e. how many notes to use, how it is phrased, how many times it repeats etc. It is perfect for mix randomization, too as we are able leverage the power of the Intermorphic Text Engine to generate random text that can be used to generate new seed melodies.
  • Syllables in cut-up rules
    • This makes it possible to now create Haiku and text that has a defined number of syllables (e.g. for lyrics).
  • Intermorphic Music Engine 5, Intermorphic Sound Engine 5 and Intermorphic Text Engine 5
    • These are the engines that are at the heart of Wotja 5. Our intention is to add new features during the Wotja 5 product cycle.

New Wotja Engine parameters (not in Noatikl 3, Mixtikl 7, Liptikl 2):

Consolidated Features (from Noatikl 3, Mixtikl 7, Liptikl 2):

  • See the Wotja Feature Comparison which shows how Wotja already includes the best of Noatikl 3, Mixtikl 7, Liptikl 2 and Tiklbox - and much more.
  • Note: On importing into Noatikl 3 or Mixtikl 7 (as relevant) a .noatikl or .mixtikl file exported from Wotja then any new values included in the file are simply ignored. Such new values are not saved to the exported file when those apps resave such an imported file.

Not supported in Wotja for macOS/iOS (and alternative approaches):

We want to devote our efforts to working on what we can uniquely do best, and that means recognising that some previous app capabilities are now better done by other tools. Our more focused approach means we can develop, extend and improve Wotja as fast as possible for our niche audience.

  • macOS Audio Plugins (Audio Unit)
    • Instead: Use Wotja's powerful MIDI Out to control DAW synths
    • Instead: Use something like Rogue Amoeba's Audio Hijack or Soundflower to capture Wotja Audio
  • Lua Scripting for specialists [was only ever in Noatikl for macOS]
    • Instead: We hope in due course to implement non-scripting approaches for the primary things it was used for
  • Use of Audio loops outside of Paks
  • Tap Play (TBD) [was only ever in Mixtikl for macOS/iOS]
  • AudioCopy/AudioPaste [was only ever in Mixtikl for iOS]
    • Instead: Try using apps like AudioShare
  • Microphone recording [was only ever in Mixtikl for macOS/iOS]
    • Instead: Do that in your DAW which is much better suited to it!
  • Minor/little used features now deprecated
    • Any Mixtikl visualiser related settings
    • Mixtikl Store/Recall settings
    • Mixtikl Advanced cell settings, i.e. Skip, Silent, Stream, Audio Sample

Wotja is a new app and we sell it only via selected App Stores (Apple, Microsoft, Amazon). That means there is no easy or direct way for us to make it available as an upgrade (paid or free) to customers who purchased Noatikl, Mixtikl or Liptikl. However, fear not! We have continued with our Fullgrade model (see below) meaning if you have one of those apps all you need to do is to purchase the version of Wotja that you need for your device and you will know you are getting a good deal. And, Wotja can open your Noatikl, Mixtikl and Liptikl files.

For apps that we are continuing to develop, we do make "upgrades" available - and by "upgrade" we mean a new major version (i.e. Wotja V5 following on from Wotja V4).

However, upgrades are all paid for in one way or another, so we guess what you are probably asking is "how much do they cost?" and "how do I get them?". For some years now we have operated a Fullgrade Model; see below for info on that and for the differences between Updates and Upgrades etc.

Fullgrade Model

Rather than having a Full Price purchase for our Software (e.g. Wotja V4) followed by upgrades at a lower Upgrade Price (e.g. Wotja V5), we decided in 2012 to forgo the higher initial Full Price and simply sell major versions at the lower Upgrade Price - we call this hybrid approach a "Fullgrade" model. Even though we lose out on the initial "revenue blip" we did it because A) it cuts out complexity (for both you and us) and B) for new customers it also means our apps now cost less than they otherwise would have done.

If you want an "Upgrade" with its new features and content then just buy the newest non-subscription Annual Version and know you are getting a good deal. Alternatively, get the subscription version and keep an active In-App Subscription, which works out even less! See below for more info.

Free Updates

Updates: We provide free "updates" for all our apps whilst they remain available for sale (e.g. Wotja, Wotja/Wotja X 2018 during 2018, Noatikl 3 etc.).

Purchase Options

Initial Purchase: Since 2012 we have only had an "Upgrade Price" (see "Fullgrade" Model, above) whereas for most Software there is traditionally a "Full Price" first purchase followed by a lower cost "Upgrade Price" for each new Major Version.

Upgrades: "Major Version" increments of our apps, i.e. Upgrades, have always been new "paid for" apps (e.g. Noatikl 2 > Noatikl 3) and sold at Upgrade Prices (see "Fullgrade" Model, above). Once a new version of an app is released then the previous version is retired (removed from sale) and no further updates are made available for it. If you want further updates or new features, simply purchase the new version which is already at an Upgrade Price.

Subscriptions (Wotja X only): An active subscription in one of our subscription apps is like having a rolling upgrade program for it, which one of the reasons you may wish to consider In-App Subscriptions. See the Subscription FAQ.

Annual Releases (Wotja/Wotja X only): We make available 'paid-for' annual releases (e.g. Wotja 2017, Wotja/Wotja X 2018) with same capabilities and regular updates as the the subscription version and these are updated in tandem with the subscription versions (as available) up until the end of the relevant year; if you want *further updates* after this time you would need to purchase the *next* paid-for version. You may continue using this version for as long as you like (assuming, of course, it runs OK on any new OS you choose to install); if you want to save even more money then get the subscription version.

App Bundles: These are not part of our Fullgrade model, where prices are already at upgrade levels. We have in the past used them to give a discount for bulk purchase of multiple paid for apps. Now that we have consolidated to just one app, Wotja/Wotja X, we no longer have a need to offer App Bundles.

Do I need to get the new Major Version or Annual Release?

Well, that is up to you and will be down to whether or not you want or need any features/content in it. If you do not think the feature set for a particular Major Version or Annual Release is strong enough and you don't want or need it, you don't have to get it - you can skip it. There is no obligation for you to buy the new Major Version or Annual Release and, remember, if you have purchased a paid for app you can continue using it for as long as you like (assuming, of course, it runs OK on any new OS you choose to install). Doing things this way very much keeps us on our toes, and there is no fig leaf for us to hide behind.

P.S. Don't forget, if you purchase a paid for your app near the end of the previous Major Version or Annual Release cycle then it is still great value as, at an "upgrade price", you get the benefit of all the improvements that we packed in during that cycle (be they features, fixes or stability)!

What about OS and 3rd party library support?

Toolchains are always changing, and it can take a lot of time to modify, test and update software to support new versions of an OS or new 3rd party libraries (e.g. AudioBus etc.). That is why for each Major Version or Annual Release cycle we try hard to ensure our software works correctly with what is available at the time and whilst it is availabale.

As the years go by, though, older versions of our software may not work correctly with newer 3rd party services or a newer OS that you may choose to upgrade to (remember, it is entirely YOUR CHOICE to do that). That attrition is just the way the appverse works. It is a tough choice, but we simply do not have the bandwidth to continuously update old apps that may have cost a few dollars AND to keep our current apps moving forwards for customers who want new things.

Considering Leaving a Review?

We love our customers and our goal is to build for them very powerful, high quality generative tools. We are like master craftsmen with years of experience - but we exist in a very small, niche, market. We take on board and act on all feedback about the quality our apps - after all, we want to make them the best we can. We hope you enjoy our apps and that you will consider giving them nice reviews!

However, if you are thinking of leaving a negative review, perhaps because you are unhappy about pricing, or indeed anything else, then please first stand back, take a deep breath and reflect on the following before doing so:

Every negative review that is left impacts our sales and so adversely impacts on our ability to survive in our niche market. We know that you expect to be able to eat for the work you do, and we know that you are a nice person and you would want us to eat, too, for the work we do. For 2 guys like us to develop our complex apps (and update them) is a very, very time consuming activity. If we cannot (somehow) make enough money to keep it all going then our niche apps will simply wither and die. If you have any serious issues or pressing concerns then please get in touch with us directly, rather than airing those in a public review that is often hard to respond to. We thank you for your understanding! Tim and Pete

Remember: You can always get in touch with us directly.

Important: Noatikl 3 / Mixtikl 7 / Liptikl 1 for Windows have now been removed from sale. Their future is now to be found in Wotja.

No, sorry! We do free updates, not free upgrades. All Liptikl major versions followed a Fullgrade pricing policy meaning they are already priced as upgrades. Liptikl has now evolved to Wotja and there is no free upgrade to Wotja.

Liptikl for Desktop: If you want to use any of the new features in Liptikl 2 then just purchase a licence for the new version before it is removed from sale in April 2018. Don't delay, as when it is gone, it is gone. That said, we think you will find Wotja to be a worthy successor.

You might want to do this if macOS updates to a new version and you do not or are unwilling to do that, you have removed Liptikl and the new version of Liptikl is no longer available for your version of macOS (we use Apple tools to build our apps, and Apple updates to these tools change which versions of macOS we can build for). So, how do you restore the last version of Liptikl available for your version of macOS?

See Apple's instructions on how to do this. Alternatively, you might try restoring from a device or even TimeMachine backup.

Common

The User Library and any changed Liptikl Word Bank words are stored on your device. If you want all your devices to use the same User Library and any changed Liptikl Word Bank words you will need to copy those entries to clipboard and, for all devices you have Liptikl installed, you will need to replace the words with these ones.

Our 64-bit Windows software will only install on 64-bit Windows; it will not install on a 32-bit operating system. So it is most likely that you are not actually running 64-Windows.

To check which version of Windows 10 you are using, use the Windows search box to look for "About Windows". This suggests "System Settings". Select that entry to go to the Settings screen.

At the bottom of the left hand panel in the Settings screen select "About". In the screen that displays you will see something like "System Type: 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor".

If you are running 32-bit Windows and want to run our software you will need to download in install the last-released version of the related 32-bit software. These builds (where available) can be found in the relevant Archive section of the app page: Liptikl 1.2.12 32-bit; Noatikl 2.8.8 32-bit, Mixtikl 6.3.8 32-bit. Not that they will run in 30 day trial mode until you apply your Product License key.

See: Where do I find Crash Logs? and send the text in them through via our Contact Form, and don't forget to tell us what you were doing when you had the crash! Hopefully we will be able to fix the crash in the next update. Thank you!

Background

We try as hard as we can to make our apps stable. If this app does crash on you, then the chances are that for crashes in new apps (released after Jun 2014) we will (but not always) get reports from the HockeyApp integrated crash reporting system. Because of this, we have the best chance of fixing crashers and so our latest versions are likely to be the most stable. This is one reason we recommend that you always update your Intermorphic apps to the latest version, where your device/OS allows.

If you are using an earlier app then you can still send us a crash log so that we can investigate and try to fix the problem (for all users). The crash log files all start with the app name, and have an extension "crash". They are text files that we can read, and give us useful information in tracking-down a crash.

Even though we get the crash logs, it can also help us track things down if you send us any info about your particular crash, or indeed anything you think is not working right.

Intermorphic apps that support Apple iCloud / iCloud Drive:

  • Wotja 4+ (iOS), Wotja 4+ (macOS), Wotja X (iOS/macOS)
  • Noatikl 3.0+ (iOS), Noatikl 3.1+ (macOS)
  • Liptikl 2.0+ (iOS), Liptikl 2.0+ (macOS)
  • Mixtikl 7.0+ (iOS)
  • Wotja 3.2+ (iOS)

iCloud Drive Folder:

The iCloud Drive folder on macOS is found here:

  • ~/iCloud Drive/Wotja/
  • ~/iCloud Drive/Noatikl/
  • ~/iCloud Drive/Mixtikl/
  • ~/iCloud Drive/Liptikl/

Why use iCloud / iCloud Drive?

We strongly recommend using iCloud / iCloud Drive wherever you can.

There are five main reasons for that:

  1. Backups: Files kept in iCloud are always backed up.
  2. File Synchronisation: Lets you easily create and edit on any device. For example, on an iOS device you create a file on device 1 and then edit it further on device 2, and then on macOS work on that file in the desktop version of that app, and vice versa.
  3. File Organisation: You can move files around on iOS with the iCloud Drive app or on desktop PC with Finder.
  4. Single copies of Zip files (Wotja 4+ only): If you Zip up additional content that you want your Wotja file to reference (e.g. SF2, WAV or OGG files) and you put that Zip File in the Wotja iCloud folder then you only need one copy of it (rather than a copy in the Intermorphic Folder of very device you use).
  5. Simplicity: You don't need to understand the intricacies of the "Intermorphic Folder" or Local Device folder.

Note on iCloud Drive Subfolders (folders under the main app folder):

Our iOS apps support "flat" folders meaning they will display all files under the root folder, including files in any subfolders.

Tip: If you want to limit what files are displayed in the iOS app, you need to move the files you don't want to see out of the main app folder, perhaps into a "Archived" folder under iCloud Drive.

Apple iCloud Drive FAQ:

See: iCloud Drive FAQ

How to display iCloud Drive on your iOS device home screen:

See: Help using iCloud Drive

Tip: Why can't I see the relevant app folder in my Mac's iCloud Drive folder or in the iCloud Drive on icloud.com?

Tip: Even if you have Wotja / Wotja X for iOS or Wotja 2017+ for iOS installed on your device, to see the Wotja iCloud folder on Mac, we strongly suggest installing either Wotja / Wotja X for macOS or Wotja 2017+ for macOS.

If you have just installed one of our iCloud Drive supporting apps for the first time, then it seems it can take a while for the iCloud Drive synching to happen and for the folders/files to appear on your Mac. We know not why.... but a couple of suggestions to try are:

  • Sign-in to your iCloud web account (icloud.com) and from the home page select the iCloud Drive icon when you will then be able to see all your iCloud Drive folders. It seems that doing this may cause the relevant app folder to appear soon on the Mac.
  • It may be that the relevent folder is not showing in the above iCloud Drive folder, in which case we have found that if you connect your device to iTunes on your Mac and then perform an iTunes "Sync" for that device, it seems the folders/files then appear straight away under your Mac's iCloud Drive folder and in icloud.com.
  • Yes they can (try emailing them to yourself).

    Liptikl 1 Desktop note: Only the first 3 of the Sources are visible and can be used or saved; Liptikl 2 allows use of all 5 Sources.

  • Note: If you have purchased a licence for Liptikl 1 for Windows via our website you will receive an email containing your Customer ID, Order ID and Product Key (the version purchased via the Mac App Store does NOT require a product key). Check you have followed the Product Key section in the Liptikl User Guide.

    Note: If you're running on Windows, and find Liptikl 1 doesn't save its license key when you close the application, use the Windows option to run "as Administrator". Enter and save your registration details. Restart the application normally: it should now be fine.

    If the above does not get you going, then please try the following steps:

    • Close Liptikl.
    • Open Liptikl. Select Help from the Main Menu and then Liptikl Product Key. Then enter your Customer ID, Order ID and Product Key. We recommend you copy and paste the Product Key and do not try to type it in.
    • Once entered, close the software and restart it.
