November 7th 2010, UK: Intermorphic Ltd today releases Mixtikl 2.3, the next major update to Mixtikl, featuring a new file format that makes it easier to create and tweet beguiling "mixtikls", a new look UI and in-app store for a range of add-on content "Tiklpaks".
The Intermorphic founders built upon the vector audio techniques they pioneered back in 2000 & 2001 (at SSEYO) where they found ways to deliver sounds in one SMS. They have continued this work and the new format lets users include custom customsound FX and mixes that reference content (generative music or audio loops) from any of the range of add-on Tiklpaks. The user's mix can be exported as a URL for shortening by one of the popular URL shortening services and then included in a tweet. When the tweet link is selected on a iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with Mixtikl installed, Mixtikl will load and the mix play. When the tweet is selected on Windows or Mac PC with Mixtikl installed, the Mixtikl browser plugin will play the mix. Being able to tweet a mix means people can easily create, share and enjoy new mixes.
Mixtikl 18.104.22.168 for Mac & Windows desktop comprises a standalone version, VST and AU plugins for music sequencers, and a plugin for web browsers. The Mixtikl browser plugin allows "mixtikls" to be played in a webpage.
All Mixtikl versions include over 100 generative "parts" that can be added to a mix, over 30 loop beats, a MIDI DLS wavetable synth and over 50 FX presets and 75 Synth presets. Intermorphic's generative music heritage means Mixtikl 2 presently excels at ambient mixes, with the range of technology under the hood allowing it to create much more.

Intermorphic Ltd was co-founded in 2007 by Tim Cole and Pete Cole. It develops creativity & relaxation ("creative relaxation") apps that use generative & cut-up techniques and builds them to help people both create ideas and to relax and enjoy the moment. The multi BAFTA Award-winning 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 "SSEYO Koan Music Engine", a "Generative Music" system 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 "SSEYO miniMIXA", one of the world's first mobile music mixers. Intermorphic secured the IP rights to the iSS and SSEYO software in Q2 2008. In 2007 it released both "Noatikl: Generative Music Composer" (the evolution to SSEYO Koan) and "Liptikl: Cut-Up Text Writer". This was followed in 2008 by "Mixtikl: Generative Music Mixer" and in 2012 by "Tiklbox: Generative Music Player". After many years deliberating on the next step forward for Generative Music the Coles decided that it was "Reflective Music" and so in 2014 came the first of the "Wotja® : Generative Music Suite" releases. By 2017 the key authoring capabilities of Noatikl, Mixtikl and Liptikl had been fully consolidated into Wotja for iOS and Wotja for macOS (AKA 'Wotja A'), 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. In April 2018 came the V5.4 release where Wotja X finally achieved major feature parity with Wotja for iOS/macOS.
