We try to give a little extra love by making available some free Content, be that as zipped up .wotjabox files or as zipped up paks of templates, i.e. Content "Paks".
NB: Content Paks are simply add-on content collections zipped in such a way to make it extra easy to use in our apps - Wotja, Noatikl and Mixtikl - with some benefits.
NB: The Intermorphic Paks below were used in Noatikl and Mixtikl and we used to refer to them as Tiklpaks, but they work fine in Wotja. Any new IM Paks we make available will be only for Wotja and so will be called Wotja Paks or just Paks.
Here are a few Wotja mix files (packaged in .wotjabox albums) to help you see how we have done some things.
The 'Wotja Demo Mixes NT' zip includes a .wotjabox file with 8 demo Wotja mixes (originally Noatikl files imported into Wotja). Two of them are mix files from the Built-In Albums 'Calm' and 'Relax'.
The other includes .wotjabox files with various older demo mixes, some converted from Mixtikl mixes, and some requiring the AL Loop Paks below.
Listeners & Creators
Download and unzip the zip file then copy the .wotjabox file(s) to your Wotja folder and then use the 'Action > Refresh' option in the Wotja Documents screen. You should then see the relevant .wotjabox albums in the Documents Screen User Segment (e.g. 'Wotja Demo Mixes NT' or 'Demos - AL1 Loop Mixes (Free Paks required)'). If you have a 'Pro' Feature Set you can export the mixes from the album(s). You might want to do that so you can open them in Mix Editing mode to see how they work.
With respect to the Older Demos, some require installation of the Audio Loop Paks below. The Audio Loop Mix Demo albums can take a good while to load as all the loops have to load, too, so be patient!
This pak comprises the 77 MDB SF2 files (22kHz, mono, created back in 1998 from loops and samples owned by the awesome Zero-G) and the 100 MDB generative Koan SKD templates that referenced them (but converted to Noatikl templates).
Once the Pak is installed you may need to restart Wotja. Create or open a mix and in the Mix Editor Mode add a Template to your mix. In the Template list you will see a Pak on the left hand list called "IM_ZG_MorphingDrum+Bass". Select that and add any one of the templates from the right hand list and you will be returned to Mix Edit Mode. Tap the Synth button for one of the Voices in that template and then tap on the Wavetable unit; you will see the SF2 that has been selected.
Copy the above to your Wotja folder. Each zipped Pak below is separately displayed/browseable in Wotja. If you don't mind seeing one pak with a big long list of content then get the zip above, as it is easier.
Intermorphic "Paks" are simply add-on content collections zipped in such a way as to make it extra easy to use them in our apps and with some benefits (time stretching/pitch shifting for loops).
For ALL Pak zips *EXCEPT* the Zip of Zips file, download the zip file from the Intermorphic website via the link above and save to your Wotja folder or to your Mac/PC Intermorphic Folder (do not unzip the zip file).
From a Content Cell select an AL Pak in the left side Pak list and them a loop from the right side Contentlist; the select the top right menu "Load"
In a Mixer Cell, select the Content list button and then in the Content list select the (..) item to start browsing for content in other Paks.
How do I share mixes referencing the content in these or other Paks?
These Paks are not embedded in our apps so for people to hear in mixes the content that is in one of them they need to first download and install the relevant Paks (and this applies to any other Pak your mix may reference). Until they have the relevant Paks installed, content cells referencing that content (in Wotja and Mixtikl) will show as red to indicate the content is not present.
Why do the free Pak audio loops load slowly on my device?
Some of the free Pak loops are quite large and to be used they need to be decompressed into memory (they are in Ogg format in the Paks). This can take a few seconds depending on how many you use.
Mixtikl only tip: In Mixtikl Settings try setting the audio output to a lower value e.g. 16Khz stereo, which will force loops to be loaded into memory at that sample rate.
Can I use my own loops/content in Wotja or Mixtikl without having to create a zipped Pak?
Our recommedation is that you must first create a properly formatted and zipped Loop Pak. NB: For use on Wotja 4.11.0 or earlier the loops must be in Ogg or 16-bit WAV format; In Wotja 4.11.2+ you can also use 24-bit WAV loops.
However, there is a workaround that might work for you but it is not officially supported. See here.
Yes, you can, but remember that when not in a correctly formatted Pak they will not be pitch shifted or time stretched if you change the mix root or tempo. For the content you want to use, simply copy it to the "Intermorphic Folder".
Mixtikl: I can't see the Audio Loop Paks in Mixtikl
To see the Paks that are in the AL Collections, make sure that the "Loops" check box is checked.
Mixtikl: How do I use content I have copied to the "Intermorphic Folder" (and seen in the Mixtikl "User_Content" folder)?
To use the content you have copied over, in the mixer screen, select a content cell, select the Content button in the Mixer Cell Menu and then select either the "User_Content" pak (e.g. for individual loops you have copied over) or select the ".." folder selector item and then scroll to find your pak (e.g. if you have copied over the IM Audio Loop Paks) and select the file you want to add to your mix. Alternatively, if you have copied over a pak (e.g. the Intermorphic Audio Loop Paks), then select Menu > New to create a new mix which uses content from those paks (if the paks contain loops, first ensure the Loop checkbox is checked so you can see them!).
