Wotja 21: Generative Music System

Wotja Wordmark Design Blue-Green

March 17th 2020, UK: Intermorphic Ltd announces the Wotja 21 AUv3 Audio Unit Plug-in for iOS and macOS, a powerful addition to the capabilities of the Wotja Generative Music System - a unique all-in-one 'Player & Composer Lab'.

The arrival of the Wotja 21 AUv3 Audio Unit Plug-in in V21.5.0 means that Wotja - with full editing UI - can easily be used in an AUv3 host-supporting app. The Wotja Plug-in can be used as a music generator (audio) or MIDI music generator or even both at once, perhaps using it to generate beautiful ambient drones and Text to Speech whilst you use its MIDI to drive various 3rd party synths.

Examples of such AUv3 hosts on macOS include Apple's Logic Pro and Mainstage and on iOS include AUM, Cubasis 3 and Apple's GarageBand.

MIDI routing in the Wotja 21 AUv3 is possible via Core MIDI on iOS and Core / Virtual MIDI on macOS.

Tim Cole & Pete Cole, the Intermorphic founders and brother team said “The Wotja V21 product cycle has already seen many new features and capabilities being added. An AUv3 Plug-in was something we always hoped we might one day be able to do but could just never see happening. It finally became a possibility, but was still a huge amount of work to do, once we had transitioned to using the JUCE 6 porting layer for V21 from JUCE 5 used in earlier versions. We hope you enjoy it!”

Wotja 21 is for iOS®, macOS®, Windows®, Android®, tvOS® and Fire OS® and with a companion control app available for watchOS®. Wotja V21.0.0 was released Jan 1st 2021.

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 'Maker, 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. Ever since its first release Wotja and its IME (Music), ISE (Sound), IWS (Script) and ITE (Text) engines have continued to be extended with many new features and improvements.
