AND...
- Export Noatikl files (to clipboard) that can be used in Wotja 3 for iOS as Custom Player/Backing (Wotja 3 for iOS available separately)!

RIP:
- The new Noatikl 3 file format meant we had to remove little used support for exporting noatikls (pieces) as tweets - if you do feel the need to tweet something custom you can instead export a piece and import that into Wotja 3 [available separately, later] and then export a Wotja Music URL;

You can get it for free, and we hope you like it enough to get the IAP and then go on to leave a nice review or rating. :)

We have been working on this for a long time, and so have tested it pretty carefully. It is always possible with a brand new platform release that there may be some small niggles and we have missed something (Noatikl is deep). At the moment we are only aware of one significant issue (there seem to be some issues with Core MIDI on iPad 1), and we are working on a fix.....

This is a major release:
- iOS: Noatikl 2

Full details can be found on the Noatikl webpage (http://intermorphic.com/noatikl/index.html) and also in the Noatikl 2 User Guide which contains a big section on Noatikl 2 Mobile (http://intermorphic.com/noatikl/userguide/index.html). 

We hope to be releasing some short videos over the next couple of days. In the interim, try out the two demo pieces included (these are pieces in Tiklbox that we have opened the Kimono on) and play around. We will let you know when the videos are there to check out....

If you cannot run OS X 10.7+, then there is an archive link on the download page to the last version for OS X 10.5 (Noatikl 2.1.5). If you have any problems, please get in touch via our support form

Noatikl 2.2.4 is now available.

This is a new feature and bug fix release:

Key changes are related to Template previewing and allowing you to drag voices around in the Network Editor so as to better organise your pieces.

• Template Previewing with improved merging into piece:
- File->New: Modified to use Cancel / New / Merge (show merge only if not wavetable);
- tap to preview the template (you can now hear it before you use it!)
- press New/Merge button to complete the operation
- Merge is disabled if the template uses a custom wavetable
- Removed Noatikl: Edit -> Add Template, Edit -> Add From File

• Improved Network view:
- improved the layout - much cleaner, only show active midi/synth/effect channels
- inactive channels are revealed when you drag cable from any Voice...
- added operation: drag-around voices to re-order them
- removed operation: drag from MIDI cell to Voice cell (instead, just drag a voice to a MIDI cell)

• File -> Merge:
- available to you if you already have a file open, and want to merge in another noatikl or partikl file

• Fixes issue where Noatikl sometimes doubled-up Note Off events

• Updated splash/copyright

IMPORTANT NOTE: The Noatikl Desktop Audio Plugins for Mac now required Mac OS 10.7+. We had to move to that due to changes in Apple's Developer Tools. If you cannot run OS X 10.7+, then there is an archive link on the download page to the last version for OS X 10.6.8+ (Noatikl 2.1.5)

• All versions: on-line help links from the FX and Sound Generator units now working
• All Mac versions: MIDI File Recordings now saved to ~/Music/Noatikl/MIDI Recordings; this folder is now a fixed location on Mac (so on Mac, you no longer see the Change button in the Noatikl Preferences or MIDI Cooker dialogs). All Noatikl MIDI recordings files that are found in the old folder location (assuming you haven't customised it!), are moved automatically to the new folder when Noatikl first starts up.
• Mac App Store version: added full-screen support
					  
Noatikl 2.1.3 is now available.

It's celebration time for past Koan users who can crack open the bubbly! It is hard to believe we started work on Koan in 1990 and the first Beta of Koan was sent out 20 years ago (1992), but Noatikl 2.1.3 lets you open Koan files [http://intermorphic.com/tools/noatikl/d ... ral_4.html] created with any version of Koan as far back as that then (e.g. precursors to Koan Pro, Koan Pro and the drag'n'mix Koan X). This should be a boon for Koan creators who have old Koan files they do not want to become orphaned. So without further ado...

This is a new feature and bug fix release:
• Mac/Win (Standalone/Plugins): added load/import of old Koan file data (.skd, .skt, .skm files...)
• Mac/Win (Standalone): added standard "File -> Open Recent..." menu item *** 
• Mac (Standalone): added the standard "full screen" mode button in top right *** 
• Windows: Fixed handling of Pitch Bend sensitivity property
					  
Noatikl 2.0.7 is now available.

This is a maintenance release:
• Fixed: issue with saving new files.
• Fixed: bug where MIDI Output setting or MIDI Input settings were not always restored.
• Improved: Amplifier FX unit now works logarithmically from 0 and -20 db (0.1x) to +20 dB (10.0x) instead of working linearly from 0.0 to 4.0x
• Other bug fixes
					  
Noatikl 2.0.5.2 is now available.

This is a bug fix release:
• Fixed: bug where the Noatikl plug-in wasn't getting the tempo from the host DAW/sequencer.
• Fixed: bug where Noatikl wasn't restoring the MIDI Output setting or MIDI Input setting.

• Fixed: - crash when resizing under Windows XP
• Improved: - standalone desktop versions now run at 44 kHz (was 22 kHz) on desktop
• Improved: - volume envelope attack stage changed to exponential (was linear)
• Several other bug fixes
					  
Noatikl 2.0.2.1 is now available.

This is a bug fix release:

Noatikl 2 has arrived!

IMPORTANT:
Installing Noatikl 2 trial software will replace Noatikl 1 software. Be sure to back up your Noatikl 1.x software before installing and trying out the Noatikl 2 trial version (don't worry too much, though, as for a while you can re-download Noatikl 1.8 from the archive link [http://intermorphic.com/download/index. ... kl_archive). Continued use of Noatikl 2 beyond the trial period requires the purchase of a new licence, when you will be emailed the new Product Key(s).

Why is Noatikl 2 such a big step forward for Noatikl?
Sometimes it is really hard to tell from a feature list (as below) just why something is so special.

Simply put, Noatikl now "sounds" great, is much easier to get results from and it gets you a bigger audience for your compositions.

It "sounds" great
Before the inclusion of the Partikl MIDI, Sound & FX Multi-synth, you could only driven external MIDI synths with Noatikl as it included no sound generators. You can continue to use Noatikl to drive external sound generators but you now also have the option to design/modify your own modular synth sounds and FX networks for it to play though (and you can do that for all or just some voices). These sound and fx networks you define get saved to the partikl file you save. To check out how good Noatikl can sound, get Mixtikl Full, Trial or Free and select either of the three "mixtikls" below to hear something created in Noatikl. These were each initially based on one of the Mixtikl templates now included in Noatikl and all voices play through Partikl (which is also embedded in Mixtikl). The links are URLs which include all the Noatikl and Partikl parameters required to play the live generative music you hear- they are not to audio recordings!

It's much easier to use & get results from
Noatikl used to be just a MIDI event generator, but because it now includes a powerful sound engine (try the links above) it really is so much easier to get going and to get results. The large number of included templates means there is always something else to start from when it comes to creating ideas. And, being able to see in the new network display just how all the voices (and sounds and fx) link up makes it much easier to see how things are working.

A bigger audience for your work
The inclusion of Partikl has opened up a whole new world for Noatikl as it means your generative music compositions can be truly "sonically" portable and played by anyone who has Noatikl, or Mixtikl Full, Trial or Free. Yes, they can be tweeted as "partikls" so only those in the Noatikl "club" can play them, or as "mixtikls" so that Mixtikl users can play them. You can embed them in emails, too etc. It is not our role to convince you of the fun of sharing, or even why tweeting is so cool, but if you do "get" that kind of thing then this really is a major development for you as it means many, many more people can hear the clever and really beautiful things that you can do with generative music. It gives you access to a bigger audience and a way to reach them.

Edit -> Merge-In Template
Edit -> Merge-In File
These allow you to select either a Noatikl template, or another Noatikl file in your file system, that you want to merge-in to your current piece. Noatikl merges the selected content into your current Noatikl piece, pulling-in any new rules it might need, and copying in all voices from the selected content.

This includes the following updates:
- The "view selection" combo box has been replaced with a list of all available views that lives on the left-hand side of your noatikl window. This change makes view navigation a whole lot easier! This works very nicely in full screen mode; once you have a file open, remember to resize your columns using Options -> Reset Column Widths and that will make the most of the available screen real-estate. 

					  
We have updated noatikl to version 1.5.0.7

Use MIDI controllers to manipulate noatikl in custom ways in real-time.
Turn noatikl into a hyperinstrument that responds direct to incoming
MIDI note data.
- Improved display and edit of multi-line text parameters
- Store and edit custom text notes for your piece and voices.
- Fixed hanging notes problems
- Updated splash screen :)
					  
We have updated noatikl to version 1.0.0.35

This includes the following updates:
- implemented the "Voice - Chords" view; this adds a lot of easy-to-use power to noatikl: http://www.intermorphic.com/tools/noati ... hords.html
- renamed following "Shift/Interval Range" to "S/I Range"
- renamed ambient "Gap" to "Gap Range"
- updated license

					  
We have updated noatikl to version 1.0.0.33

This includes the following updates:
- Added (phrase) Note Rest % parameter.
Defaults to zero; noatikl will cause any note that would otherwise
be played by noatikl, to instead be treated as a rest, that defined
percentage of the time. Very useful for making any voice sound more
sparsely. Give it a go!
- Added optional patch Bank MSB/LSB in the Patch cell,
which you can use via this sort of format: patch.msb.lsb, e.g.: 98.53.0
In this case, noatikl will emit bank select CCs for both MSB and LSB
according to the settings you supply.
- Fixed bug where cooking did not capture tempo information properly in
all circumstances.
- Fixed problem when starting to play a voice, where noatikl chose the
initial state (playing/resting) without properly weighting the choice
according to the phrase and gaps parameter values.

- Renamed noatikl console window menu item.
					  
We have updated noatikl to version 1.0.0.32

This includes the following updates:
- Fixed problem where hanging notes were observed with Orion/Bidule using VST, via the internal sequencer pipeline.
- Added support for loading from template packs. Available template packs, and their contents, are shown in response to the "File -> New" menu command. We've included some simple template data in this version.
- Use "noatikl" folder under Documents (Mac) or My Documents (Window) as the preferred folder for noatikl.
- Automatically handle double-click events on .noatikl files from Finder (Mac) or Windows Explorer (Windows).
- Moved Script window launching to under the Tools menu item; allow it to show even if no files open.
- Support closing of the Script window.
					  
We have updated noatikl to version 1.0.0.31

This includes the following updates:
- nice new installer programs, that put the plug-in components in sensible places!
- far easier system for downloading the program!
- preferences option to allow you to automatically capture your noatikl sessions to MIDI file recording!
- new "Tools" menu item allowing you to "batch cook" lots of alternative takes of your noatikl piece, as fast as possible. Check it out!

- removed some instances of hanging notes that could occur with noatikl plug-in variants
- fixed import of text file import from older 2.x variants of Koan Pro
- no longer crash if importing unsupported 1.x text files from Koan Pro!

We have updated noatikl to version 1.0.0.27

This includes the following updates:
- Fixed bug where when you copied/pasted a voice or rule, it was not
automatically picked up by the playing piece, but instead required the piece
to be restarted to hear the change.
					  
We have updated noatikl to version 1.0.0.26

This includes the following updates:
- Fixed bug in envelope drawing tools, where various range-based tools (curve up/down, ramp up/down etc.) did not apply the correct slope; meaning that the right-hand side of the envelope could have slightly the wrong value applied.
- Added facility to directly copy/paste text from object name and some parameter cells (especially pattern cell).

Tip 1:
If you have problems naming voices with the noatikl VSTi under Sonar (due to the Sonar keyboard handling bug http://www.intermorphic.com/tools/noatikl/faq.html#23, you can edit the text name in a separate editor, and paste-in the name you want by Right-clicking on the object name cell, and selecting "Paste Text".
Tip 2:
To get pattern data from Koan Pro directly to noatikl, you can do this:
- Ctrl-Click on Koan Pro pattern cell
- Right-click on selected text to copy the pattern text to the clipboard
- Right-click (Win) or ctrl-click (Mac) on the noatikl pattern cell
- Select "Paste Text"
Tip 3:
If you want to edit patterns in a separate text editor or word processor, you can do this:
- Right-click (Win) or ctrl-click (Mac) on the noatikl pattern cell
- Select "Copy Text"
- Paste this text into your favourite text editor
- Edit the text with your text editor; copy to the clipboard when done!
- Right-click (Win) or ctrl-click (Mac) on the noatikl pattern cell
- Select "Paste Text"
