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."

"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."

General

SSEYO to Intermorphic App Consolidation Schematic

Historical Recap

We started working on generative music apps way back in the 1990s. Our first app was SSEYO Koan, released in 1992. That was followed by Noatikl [itself the evolution of SSEYO Koan], Liptikl, Mixtikl, Tiklbox and previous Wotja apps. However, by 2016 we realised that to be able to keep moving forward we had to consolidate the capabilities of all of these into just one powerful Generative Music Suite app. We decided to call this app Wotja. In 2018 there are 2 variants: Wotja A and Wotja X.

Wotja A

In 2017 we completed the first round of this consolidation, but only for the iOS/macOS versions of our apps, therefore Wotja at that time was 'Apple-only'. To keep things simple we're choosing in the docs to refer to this original Apple-only 'variant' as 'Wotja A' (NB: On the App Store it is still called 'Wotja' and has the foregoing icon).

Wotja X

For 2018 we developed a new cross-platform UI variant (i.e. 'X') presently called 'Wotja X' which has the foregoing icon.

Wotja V5

As of Wotja V5.4 the two variants ('Wotja A', 'Wotja X') are now major feature equivalent. We therefore now refer to both as just 'Wotja' and have one User Guide and Wotja page that is common to both.

Wotja V6

From 2019 there'll be just one Wotja variant. It will use the new X-platform UI approach presently deployed in 'Wotja X'.

Recommendations for now

  • Apple iOS/macOS device - new user:
    • Look to get the new UI 'Wotja X' variant and then decide whether you want to go with the subscription version ('Wotja X') or the annual version ('Wotja X 2018'). The iOS and macOS version links can be found here: 'Wotja X / Wotja X 2018 for iOS' or 'Wotja X / Wotja X 2018 for macOS'.
    • Note 1: iOS - One reason you might still wish to get the old UI 'Wotja A' iOS variant is if you need Accessibility/Apple Watch companion app as the new UI version will not have these (see below).
    • Note 2: If you need longer than 8 hours Music Play Time for your Wotja albums, get the Wotja X subscription version and the relevant Long Play subscription tier.
  • Windows PC or Android device - new user:

Remaining differences between 'Wotja A' and 'Wotja X'

As of V5.4 'Wotja A' and 'Wotja X' are major feature equivalent. We may/not address the following minor 'Wotja X' feature differences:

Minor features (may/may not come later to 'Wotja X'):

  • Display screen 'fullscreen' mode (possibly)
  • Mix screen splitter (possibly)
  • Webpage WJURL loading (unlikely)
  • Dark/Light UI themes (no specific plans)

The features in 'Wotja A' that we do not plan to add to 'Wotja X' are as follows:

  • iOS: Apple Watch companion app (if you need this, get Wotja / Wotja 2018 from the iTunes App Store instead)
  • iOS: Accessibility support (really sorry, but until our new porting layer supports it we just cannot add it - if you need this, get Wotja / Wotja 2018 from the iTunes App Store instead)

We are not in any way abandoning Liptikl, but its future now lies in Wotja / Wotja X (variously 'Wotja'). If you can do something in Liptikl 1 or 2 then you can do it in Wotja for iOS or macOS (see Wotja < > Liptikl differences).

To understand why we say this it is important to understand what Liptikl actually is.

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

What is Liptikl?

It is a Cut-Up Text Editor branded "Liptikl".

It principally comprises a set of user interfaces (UI) to both a cut-up text engine and that let you export files (.liptikl files and text).

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).

Wotja for macOS/iOS: Both now co-opt the best of Noatikl, Mixtikl, Liptikl (and Tiklbox), and increasingly more besides, and provide a forward migration path for files created in them.

Liptikl 2 for iOS and macOS were released March 2016. All our cut-up app development work has now moved to Wotja / Wotja X (variously 'Wotja'), the evolution of Liptikl. This means that as of 2017 Liptikl is no longer being worked on. We took that tough decision in order to secure a future for a forward looking app that can play Liptikl files - Wotja 4+ - and do more. See the Wotja Feature Comparison.

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).

See also: Why the big changes with Wotja? and What is the difference between Liptikl 2 and Wotja 4?

Liptikl 1 for Windows will be removed from sale in April 2018.

We are doing this to make way for Wotja X for Windows, which represents its future.

Even though Liptikl 1 for Windows is no longer being updated, you may well want to purchase it for some of the following reasons (if you want it, just don't leave it too late as it might already be gone! See Downloads):

  • You want a powerful cut-up creative writing tool and your PC is running Windows XP, 7 or 8 (Wotja X supports only Windows 10).
  • You are a collector of cut-up creative writing software and don't yet have it.
  • You like the look of Wotja X, but are not yet sure about it.
  • If you already have Liptikl, Noatikl, or Mixtikl we suggest you try it (you won't know what you're missing), but if you are happy with their content, features and interfaces then you are under no obligation to get Wotja / Wotja X - just carry on as you are!

    Note: We have both subscription and non-subscriptions versions of Wotja available. See our FAQ entry on in-app subscriptions.

    You might want to consider getting Wotja / Wotja X if:

    • You want to use any of the cool new features.
    • You are a fan of our artisan "creative relaxation" tools and what they mean to you, and you want to help support us in our efforts to continue developing them for you.
    • You want to see what comes next...

    Note: Wotja / Wotja X do not interfere with Noatikl 3, Mixtikl 7 or Liptikl 2 for iOS installations and should work fine with files you have made in previous versions of Noatikl (mobile or desktop), many mixes made with previous versions of Mixtikl (mobile or desktop) and files created with Liptikl 2. As the Wotja subscription version is free, you can easily try it out (see: How to copy files into Wotja). You may even want to try out creating some new random mixes! Note that on Liptikl for iOS files require an active IAP Tier for data to be loaded correctly (sorry, but we just could not figure a way around that).

    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

    Sorry, there are no bundles available at the present time and because we now have just one paid for app per platform we don't expect them to come back!

    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).

    The iCloud Drive folder on macOS is found here:

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

  • 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.
    • Tip: Do not have any spaces at the end of the Product Key ... or at the start.
    • Problems copying/pasting Product Key?
      • Windows - To paste on Windows, you must :
        • Right click in the text box
        • ... then select 'Paste' from the pop-up menu
        • Alternatively, click in the text box, and press Control-V (for paste).
    • Tip: If you are still having problems, please contact us and let us know the version numbered displayed in Help About (as well as OS version, how much free disk space you have, how much RAM do you have, the format of your hard disk [e.g. FAT32]).
