July 9th 2011, UK: Intermorphic Ltd today releases Mixtikl 4.0 Generative Music Lab for Apple® iPhone®, iPad®, iPod touch®, Mac OS® and Microsoft® Windows®. V4 is a major FREE update to Mixtikl V2.x/V3.x and features live & inline editing of core Noatikl generative music parameters. This release means completely custom generative music mixes, note patterns & modular syth sounds & fx can be tweeted as "mixtikls". Tweeted "mixtikls" can also be enjoyed with Mixtikl Free.
In concert with the Mixtikl 4 feature enhancements, Intermorphic™ has further revised the Mixtikl file format to include support for the additional Noatikl parameter customisations, including note patterns, which are included in the tweetable mixes. This means that truly unique mixes, arrangements, riffs and arps can be created and tweeted for others to listen to, enjoy, remix or edit, and even retweet.

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.
