Noatikl 2 Generative Music Lab for Mac macOS and Windows

Noatikl 2 Generative Music Lab now includes PSE for sounds & FX

May 18 2012, UK: Intermorphic Ltd announces today that Noatikl™ 2 Generative Music Lab is now released. Noatikl 2 is perfect for generating completely custom generative music as well as a tool to help come up with new musical ideas. The Desktop Standalone verion for Mac OS® is now on the Mac App Store and the Desktop Standalone version for Microsoft® Windows® together with Desktop Audio Plug-ins for Mac/Windows are on the Intermorphic web store.

Noatikl 2 includes the advanced PSE MIDI, Sound & FX multi-synth for sound generation as well as Tiklpaks including over 380 customisable "parts" & 50 FX presets that can be used as templates in your own creations. Although PSE allows for the creation of completely self contained and tweetable generative music, Noatikl can still generate and send MIDI notes and controller information to control settings of favourite external synths, FX units and samplers.

One of the biggest attractions of generative music is that you make it yourself - either to listen to, to generate ideas or simply for creative fun - and then maybe even share it. Files created in Noatikl 2 can be shared via email or tweeted as "partikls" or "noatikls" for playback in Noatikl, or even as "mixtikls" for playback in Mixtikl™ or Mixtikl Free. There are versions of Mixtikl 5 for Apple® iPad®, iPhone®, iPod touch®, Android™, Mac OS® and Microsoft® Windows®.

Pete Cole and Tim Cole, the Intermorphic™ founders and brother team said "Noatikl 2 represents a big step forward for Noatikl as the inclusion of the PSE sound engine allows completely portable, tweetable custom generative music and also brings Noatikl for iOS and Android a big step closer."

Noatikl 1 for Mac and Windows was first released in 2007 and is a big brother to Mixtikl. Like Mixtikl, Noatikl is intended to be a true cross platform application for both desktop and mobile.

About Intermorphic (press contact):

Intermorphic Ltd was co-founded in 2007 by Tim Cole and Pete Cole. It develops music creativity & relaxation ("creative relaxation") apps that use generative, text-to-music & cut-up techniques.

The Cole brothers ("the Coles") have a history in music software innovation: they co-founded SSEYO in 1990 and from then to 2001 they created and worked on the BAFTA Award-winning "SSEYO Koan Interactivity Platform" which included the "Generative Music" engine used by Brian Eno for his seminal 1996 "Generative Music 1". SSEYO Koan software was available for Windows, Mac and Windows Mobile and in a range of variants from Standalone to Audio Plugin to Web Browser Plugin.

Following Tao Group's acquisition of SSEYO in 2001, the Coles created the intent Sound System (iSS) and BAFTA Award-winning "SSEYO miniMIXA", one of the world's first mobile music mixers. In 2007 it released both "Noatikl: Generative Music Composer" (the evolution to SSEYO Koan) and "Liptikl: Cut-Up Text Writer". In Q2 2008 Intermorphic secured the IP rights to the iSS and SSEYO software and in December 2008 released "Mixtikl: Generative Music Mixer" followed in 2012 by "Tiklbox: Generative Music Player".

After many years of updates to the forgoing apps and after much deliberation on the next step forward for Generative Music, the Coles decided that it was "Reflective Music". And so in 2014 along came the first of the releases of the "Wotja®: Generative Music System", an all-in-one 'Creator, Mixer, Lab & Player'. By 2017 the key authoring capabilities of Noatikl, Mixtikl and Liptikl had been fully consolidated into Wotja for iOS and macOS, including the playlisting of Tiklbox.

February 2018 saw the first release of "Wotja X", a cross-platform UI variant that finally allowed Wotja to be available for all of Windows, macOS, iOS and Android. By 2019 this had become the cornerstone of all further Wotja apps, including the Wotja interface for TV. In 2021 Wotja for iOS/macOS became a single App ID and an AUv3 Audio Unit Plug-in was added, as well as support for Apple silicon.

In 2022 support for AUv3/VST3 Plug-in Hosting was added and a Wotja VST3 Plug-in was created in addition to a new "Euclidian" Generator Type. Ever since its first release Wotja and its WME (Music), WAE (Audio), WSE (Script) and WTE (Text) engines have continued to be extended with many new features and improvements.
