May 29th 2020: V20.6.0 (iOS/macOS)/20.5.3 (old macOS app)

  • FIXED: Issue where auto-renewed Subscriptions weren't picked-up from the App Store (we hope it is now truly fixed - please let us know if it isn't!)
  • IMPROVED: Wotja Pro LE iOS Subscriptions now work with the (new v20.6.0) Wotja Pro LE macOS version; both iOS and macOS apps now share the same App ID and In-App Subscriptions!
    • See: Wotja Pro LE for macOS: How do I transition from V20.5.3 or earlier to V20.6.0+?
    • In a week or so we will be removing from sale (now done) the existing V20.5.3 Wotja Pro LE for macOS app and all of its In-App Subscriptions (meaning those will just lapse at their renewal date but feel free to cancel them if you prefer to), giving you time to transition to the new v20.6.0 app (see the transition instructions) leaving just the new V20.6.0 Wotja Pro LE for macOS app on the Mac App Store (it has the same App ID as the iOS one now - our download buttons now link to this new version).
    • If you already have a Pro LX Feature Set Subscription for the iOS version (e.g. "Pro LX (iOS)") then this is now just called "Pro LX" as it functions in both iOS and macOS versions of Wotja Pro LE (V20.6+). We are grandfathering the price of these until Jan 1st 2021, meaning if you also had a "Pro LX (macOS)" Subscription you will be able to cancel that and save quite a bit over the remainder of this year (we would of course love it if you could get a Super-fan Subscription to make up the difference, but you don't have to).
    • The new dual "Pro LX" Subscription price is, at least until Jan 1st 2021, the same as the old macOS Subscription price, so if you only used the macOS version it will cost you the same as before.
  • FIXED: The LE/LX button text didn't auto-update when In-App Subscription status was detected as changed.

May 23rd 2020: V20.5.2

  • UPDATE: Sorry, but this does not yet seem to have fixed the issue :(, we'll have to try again - thankyou for your patience!
  • FIXED (Wotja Pro LE iOS/macOS): Recent issue with In-App Subscriptions where they were not being restored correctly (sorry!).
  • OTHER (Wotja Go iOS/macOS): Bug fixes.

May 15th 2020: V20.5.1

  • CHANGED (Wotja Pro LE iOS/macOS): The In-App Subscription previously referred to as "S" or "Pro S" is now referred to as "LX" or "Pro LX" (there is NO change to capability however, it works just as before); this is to make the Feature Set In-App Subscription clearer.
  • IMPROVED: Removed the "Info" button from the Wotja Pro Settings screens and moved the items to a new "Info" section in the General segment; this makes it easier to find the version number and some help links.
  • IMPROVED: A number of alert messages and localisations.
  • FIXED: If the display language (locale) was set to Japanese or Chinese the lyric engine did not correctly disable the "EOL Rhyme" settings which was in some cases preventing cut-up text generation.
  • FIXED (Wotja Go for Windows): Wotja Go was sharing preference settings with the Wotja Pro versions.

May 12th 2020: V20.5.0

  • NEW: Wotja Go is released! It is our totally free generator of relaxing generative music, with no timeout and no strings attached. Available for iOS, macOS, Windows and Android (Google Play version coming soon).
  • CHANGED: The free version of Wotja is now called "Wotja Pro LE". It may have a new icon and name, but everything works exactly as it did before including the Subscription options. We made the change to better reflect that, until unlocked, it is really a 'Lite' version of a 'Pro' creativity tool. To complement this change in emphasis we've created a new free player app called "Wotja Go" which has no timeout. It contains a number of Flow Schemes and Albums but has no editing capabilities - check it out!
  • IMPROVED: Replaced the Toolbox button above the FX column with a Grid button; it has a pop-up menu that makes it easier A) to access Cell Actions, B) to change between 1 cell/1 column/4 column grid views (was previously done via the Action menu) and C) to show/hide Generator Editor panel option (moved from the Voice Cell pop-up menu).
  • IMPROVED: When a cell is selected for second time, rather than showing template browser, we instead show a pop-up menu with all relevant Cell Actions in it.
  • IMPROVED: Wotja Script editor - enabled syntax highlighting for all keywords in ECMAScript 5.1 (e.g. "const").
  • IMPROVED: Playlist/Flow Players - mix/scheme names no longer truncated on smaller mobile devices.
  • IMPROVED: Labels/filenames should now be easier to read.
  • FIXED: Issue related to strange font display on HighSierra macOS.
  • FIXED: Changed "Fixed Pattern" to "Pattern" and "Repeat Bar" to "Repeat" in the "Add Generator of Type" menu.
  • FIXED: Rare crash with Following voices.
  • OTHER: Many other minor fixes and improvements.

May 2nd 2020: V20.4.6

  • IMPROVED: The Cell Playing Indicator will now display as grey, rather than green (or the cell lock colour), when a track is muted or muted or by virtue of another track(s) being soloed.
  • IMPROVED: In the Record tab the Refresh button has be replaced with an Action button that includes options for Refresh and Help & More.
  • IMPROVED: The Randomization screen in Settings has been tidied up a bit; the "Auto Boxes" group is now at the bottom and the Screensaver Palette/Graphic/Text settings have been moved to the "General/Mix" group; the Ramp Up/Down and Duration Min/Max settings have been likewise moved and they now also apply to a new auto mix.
  • FIXED: Labelling of items on RHS of Scale Rules/Harmony Rules in Scale/Harmony Rule Editor.

  • IMPROVED (Android): Allow install to Storage Card.
  • FIXED (Android): Issue where a button could have a background colour after selection.
  • IMPROVED: Terminology related to names/naming related to Generators of type "Pattern", Pattern types, Pattern List and related menu options; "sub-patterns" are now called "patterns" too - it should all feel a lot clearer now.
  • IMPROVED: Pattern List Editor now has a Delete menu item, more clearly named menu options and a new pattern "1 Bar - Whole Note (B)".
  • FIXED: Pattern List Editor behaviour for Add menu "Syncopated" item.
  • FIXED: Pattern Editor behaviour for "Randomize" Action menu item.

Jan 1st 2020: V20.0.0 - New Major Release

Overall

  • Simplified App Range: There are now only 2 Wotja apps per platform:
    • Wotja Pro 20 - a 'paid-for' app with a 'Pro 20' Feature Set
    • Wotja - a FREE app with a 'Lite' Feature Set
      • A 'Pro S' Feature Set can be unlocked in the iOS/macOS versions via In-App Subscription
  • New iOS App Inclusions: The above apps for iOS now include the relevant Wotja app for Apple Watch (see below)
  • New TV App Inclusions: The above apps now include the relevant Wotja app for and Apple TV/Android TV
  • New Pricing: At launch the new V20 paid-for versions cost around 1/3 less than our historical Wotja pricing points
  • Better Value: Personal Live Use used to be a $3.99/month Subscription but is NOW FREE
  • Better Business Model: Commercial Live Use is now licensed via the C0 / C1 / C2 / C3 Subscription tiers; as before, these easy to cancel Subscriptions can also be used as a 'tip jar' mechanism (for those that wish to!)

New Features / Capabilities

  • New IME 20 Feature: The V20 Wotja 'Pro' Feature Sets ('Pro S' and 'Pro 20') have no auto-timeout, this being a MAJOR change from V19 with its 8 hour auto-timeout; it means that Wotja with a 'Pro' Feature Set will now play either until you stop it or until a sleep timer kicks in - making it ideal as a background music generator for Personal or Commercial Live Use (see Better Value & Better Business Model above)
  • New IME 20 Feature: A new Text-to-Music (TTM) 'Generator Type' makes it much easier to use TTM (it used to be a subset of the Patterns Type)
  • New IME 20 Feature: 'Cut-up Rule' parameter for TTM Generator with values of: Custom … (as current behaviour), Cut-Up: Line# = Track# (used in new automatic mixes), Cut-up: All lines, Cut-Up: Line# 1, Cut-Up: Line# 2 etc.
  • New IME 20 Feature: 'Cut-up Rule' parameter allows the text used for TTM to be linked to the (line numbered) cut-up in the Cup-Up screen, making TTM much easier to use - one tap of the Cut-up Create button can be used to auto-change the TTM text used for multiple TTM generators meaning that you can enjoy TTM without manual text editing (you can still do that!)
  • New IME 20 Feature: When an auto mix is created or when any Template is manually added to the mix from the Templates list then any B Patterns in such Templates used in the mix are now randomized with note pitches generated to fit the defined Pitch Range (see the 'Using Templates with Patterns' section in our website Recording Rights & Copyright FAQ)
  • New ISE 20 Feature: Changes to 'Random' in LFO and Osc units makes it possible to create much better drones
  • New ISE 20 Feature: ISE Network editor Dice button now uses a lucky dip selection from all the built-in presets
  • New ITE 20 Feature: New Mix Rule Group "Automatic New Cut-Up" containing new "At Mix Start" and "Change After Seconds" toggles and new slider parameter "Seconds Between" and "Seconds Between Range" making it fast/easy to create a new text cut-up in any screen, also allowing a mix to auto-generate new melodies as it plays
  • New ITE 20 Feature: Many new Cut-up rules added to help with the new TTM capability above
  • New ITE 20 Feature: Cut-up and Automatic New Cut-up settings are now included in Randomization Schemes
  • New Templates: New 'BP20 Drones 1' pak featuring 21 gorgeous drones (some utilize change to Random in LFO units)
  • New Sound Presets: New gorgeous Drone Sounds Presets coming from the above pak
  • New Randomization Schemes: These take advantage of the new content and capabilities above
  • New and Improved: Updates to 'TTM1 Players' and 'TTM1 Players 2' plus new templates added to the latter
  • New Apple Watch Apps: We've created all-new Wotja and Wotja Pro 20 companion apps for Apple Watch
  • New Sharing Option: "Copy To…" support added in iOS version to allow opening of .wotja files attached to emails

Improvements / Fixes

  • Improved: Better looking and more polished UI with many changes focused on improving ease of use
  • Improved: Access to Mix recording is now much easier to find having been moved to the bottom tab bar
  • Improved: Clearer navigation with a better icon for back to Documents and '< OK' for exit from subscreens
  • IME Improved: 'Voices' are now referred to as 'Generators' to better reflect what they are - MIDI note generators
  • Improved: File sorting options for the User segment of the Documents screen

  • Improved: Punctuation in cut-up
  • Improved: When a new automatic mix is created a random icon is generated for it
  • Improved: Default Text rule string for new mixes changed to "2 2 2" (was: "2 2 0 1"), this being better for some TTM mixes
  • Improved: Fixed layout issues in landscape for 'notched' iPhones
  • Improved: New Settings toggle "Always Show Full Screen Top Panel" to more easily see the Toolbar in Flow & Box Players
  • Improved: Settings > Tuning Mode is turned off when Wotja is restarted to prevent it being left on inadvertently
  • Improved: Removed the Album title text displaying in mixes for the included Albums (looks nicer now)
  • Improved: Updated app icons!
  • ISE Changed: ISE LFO unit behaviour when "Random Levels?" was selected used to emit control-rate white noise; it now it emits at a random level (within the specified -Min to +Max range) and which changes at LFO Frequency rate, or at BPM sync rate if that is set (i.e. one complete cycle)
  • ISE Fixed: Various bugs in the ISE LFO unit "Random Levels?" implementation including where the min/max levels for a random waveform weren’t used properly and the phase didn't reset when the mix was restarted
  • ISE Fixed: Where ISE LFO unit LFO Type was set to "Note On Random", the min/max levels weren't used properly (this fix now properly allows IME note creation to affect random changes in the ISE, great for drones etc.)
  • ISE Fixed: One ISE LFO unit can now be used to modulate the frequency of a second LFO that is operating in "random level" mode
  • ISE Fixed: Directly edited ISE slider values were not always saved correctly
  • Changed: Playlists, boxes and albums can now only include .wotja files
  • Fixed: Changing pan slider in the volume/pan screen wrongly used the volume envelope slider value
  • Fixed: Changing the vol/pan envelope didn't automatically update the slider in the volume/pan screen
  • Fixed: Many other bug fixes

      • ALL the Intermorphic Music Engine (IME) editors and Intermorphic Sound Engine (ISE) editors that are in Wotja
      • Mix and Display screens that are in Wotja
      • All the menu items that are in Wotja (with some minor exceptions)
      • Support for MIDI Out/In
    • Wotja X - iOS/macOS:
      • Long Play tiers of 1 month (1 week tiers are no longer available; the change is to keep it simple with all subscription tiers having the same period)
      • General Note: Cut-Up text editing, playlist creation and a couple of other small things are yet to come…
    • Wotja X - Android:
      • MIDI Out/In is experimental and device dependent - requires appropriate device support and hardware interface on Android; Android 6+ now required for Wotja X to enable this change in capability.

    17th March 2018: V5.2.12

    • Wotja X - all versions:
      • Bug fixes

    5th March 2018: V5.2.11

      • Bug & stability fixes.

    • Wotja X (Desktop):
      • Added Close, Save, Save As shortcuts to the File Menu (for an open document)

    27th February 2018: V5.2.9

    • Wotja X - all versions:
      • Added a Template browser so you can now A) define which templates should be used for automatic Album creation (this is very powerful) and B) allow Wotja Templates, .wotja, .noatikl and .mixtikl files to be added to an album; the Template browser is accessed from Settings > Random > Templates or Playlist > Add button.
      • Added support for text to be overlaid on mix icons/fullscreen display; when creating automatic albums text is auto-generated for a mix according to the Settings > Random > Icon: Text settings (TTM [Text to Music], Cut-Up, None).
      • Icon animation has been slowed down and is now much nicer!
      • Other minor bug fixes.

    24th February 2018: V5.2.8

    • Wotja 2018 iOS/macOS:
      • Fixed issue with Albums/Playlists not sequencing correctly and mix countdown timer not updating.
      • Randomization defaults in 'Settings' have been changed to better support automatic album creation on lower power devices (it is easy to change these to suit your purposes); Blank Cells setting now 35% and Tracks now 2.
      • Fixed an issue when stopping a Mixdown Recording [iOS].
      • Other minor bug fixes.
      • See also: Long Play Music below...
    • Wotja iOS/macOS [subscription version]:
      • As above fixes plus...
      • In this update the 'Unlocked' In-App Subscription tier Music Play Time Timeout has been increased massively, from 1 hour to 8 hours (i.e. to the same value as was in the XT1 tier). Enjoy Wotja for longer and for less!
      • The 6 month auto-renewing XT In-App Subscription tiers that were available to extend the Music Play Time Timeout for long play music requirements have now been removed from sale (see instead Long Play Music below). When an auto-renewing In-App Subscription is removed from sale it simply means that it can no longer be purchased and the pre-existing subscription will not auto-renew. An active XT In-App Subscription will therefore continue to work just as it does now until that subscription expires. At the time of subscription expiration should you wish to continue using Wotja without Free Mode Limitations then you can either subscribe to the 'Unlocked' tier or purchase the paid for annual version (Wotja 2018). If you have a requirement for very long play music (i.e. > 8 hours) then see below.
      • Long Play Music: For those that need very long play times for their Wotja files (.wotja, .wotjabox), e.g. for installations, we have released a new app, 'Wotja X'. With its range of auto-renewing (but easy to cancel) weekly 'Long Play' In-App Subscription tiers 'Wotja X' allows its Music Play Time Timeout to be disabled whilst the tier is active. NB: It is easy to open your Wotja files in 'Wotja X' as both 'Wotja' and 'Wotja X' share the same iCloud folder. Tip: If you want to long play .noatikl and .mixtikl files then for the moment use 'Wotja' to add them to a Wotja playlist file (.wotjalist) and then export that to a .wotjabox file for playing in 'Wotja X'.
      • Other minor bug fixes.
    • Wotja X iOS/macOS [subscription version]:
      • Minor bug fixes

    20th February 2018: V5.2.5

    • This the first release of our new X-platform app for Windows/Android/iOS/macOS. It has been a lot of work to get to this stage.
    • We will gradually be adding editing interfaces to this app and in time we expect it to have similar editing capabilities to those of "Wotja" as is presently available for iOS/macOS (this being the evolution of SSEYO Koan, Noatikl, Mixtikl, Liptikl and Tiklbox). We don't know how long it will take us, but we will chip away at it as fast as we can!
    • Wotja X will eventually replace "Wotja". Get it now if you want to create automatic albums and have no need for "deep editing" of mixes or if you need very long play times for your mixes or albums - or even if you just want to keep tabs on it! Existing "Wotja" users can transition to it as we add the editing tools they need.

        • When selecting Templates for randomization, only Wotja Template (.noatikl) files are listed in Saved Files (NOT .wotja/.wotjabox/.wotjalist files)
      • FIXED: If in Settings > Random > General / Mix, if you had set TTM paks off then all files in a generated album were previously called .wotja; Album called .wotjabox
      • FIXED: If you pressed play then stop, and then pressed play again before the ramp-down had completed, the play/stop button displayed the wrong icon when the ramp-down had fully completed.
    • macOS
      • FIXED: Inverted text in Rule editor after e.g. renaming item.

    2nd October 2017: V4.13.0

    • macOS
      • This is a MAJOR upgrade that gives Wotja for macOS comparable functionality to Wotja for iOS - existing Wotja for macOS subscribers benefit from this major upgrade at no extra cost! Wotja for macOS now embodies the future for Noatikl and Mixtikl for macOS, and those apps will be removed from sale on or before the end of 2017.
      • Previously available functionality is still included (i.e. Cut-Up editor), but we have added a host of extra generative music editing capabilities e.g. full editors for the Intermorphic Music Engine and Intermorphic Sound Engine. The app also now includes playlist editing, Display screen configuration and two included generative albums "Relax" and "Calm".
      • NB: We made far faster progress in bringing the macOS version into line with the iOS version than we dared hope, meaning we decided we could release it this year instead of waiting until 2018 (there will of course be further developments in 2018).
      • NBB: As we are working hard to bring the iOS and macOS apps into line, the Free Mode limitations in place for Wotja for iOS are henceforth being used for Wotja for macOS.

    • macOS IMPROVEMENTS/CHANGES:
      • Minor bug fixes
      • To keep consistent with the iOS version we simplified the naming of our In-App Subscription tiers (no changes to capabilities): Was: "Wotja (Unlocked)", Now: "Wotja"; Was: "Wotja XT 8h", Now: "Wotja XT1"; Was "Wotja XT 1d", Now: "Wotja XT2"; Was "Wotja XT 7d", Now: "Wotja XT3"

    8th August 2017: V4.10.0

    • IOS NEW FEATURES:
      • Added a new "Single Cell" display mode (shown as one of the app images); for those familiar with "Noatikl" it allows you to focus on just one cell / template when editing.
      • "Multi Cell" [grid] and "Single Column" display modes are still included and all 3 are accessed via what was the right hand collapse/expand button (now called the Mix Display Mode button)
    • IOS IMPROVEMENTS/CHANGES:
      • Added a link to our new Video Tutorials in Settings > Info; these are short tutorials that should help you get going in Wotja
      • Simplified the naming of our In-App Subscription tiers (no changes to capabilities): Was: Wotja (Unlocked), Now: Wotja; Was: Wotja XT 8h, Now: Wotja XT1; Was Wotja XT 1d, Now: Wotja XT2; Was Wotja XT 7d, Now: Wotja XT3
      • Related to the above naming simplification, the User Guide nows refer to "Free Use" Limitations rather than "Free Mode" Restrictions
      • Various bug fixes

      • Updated "IM Synths" SF2 Wavetable with 10 new sounds in bank 3 (1.3 - 10.3)
      • When Randomising mixes (Settings > Random) Noatikl files exported from Wotja can now be selected as TTM templates (Files > Pak > Saved Files) if they are prefaced with "TTM", e.g. ttm_my_file.noatikl
      • Audio Latency Rate can now be adjusted via a slider (Settings > Mix)
    • iOS IMPROVEMENTS/CHANGES:
      • "Wotja Pro 2017" is now called "Wotja 2017"; there are no changes to features (i.e. Music Play Time remains up to 8hr 53m) and it is still a paid for app with no In-App Store and no In-App Subscription, but we are changing the name now to better fit with what the non-subscription version will be in 2018 - namely a paid for version with the same capabilities as the subscription version with "Wotja" In-App Subscription.
      • Refreshed the "WJ4 TTM Players" default Pak with much improved sound patches; this is now used as a default when new random mixes are created
      • Fixed the MIDI In bug and Listening Voices should work again (sorry!)
      • If when randomising a cell's contents the template added is a TTM template, the TTM text used by that template is now randomised, too (Settings > Random)
      • A couple of small tweaks to the existing Backings Pak now called "WJ4 BP1 Backings", still a default Pak
      • The old "WJ4 TTM Players" pak is still included so that content based on it still works fine, but it is now called "WJ4 TTM Players 4.0-8" and is only shown in the Templates list if "Show Older?" toggle is on
      • In Wotja we now consistently use the term "Free Mode" for features that are restricted when there is no active In-App Subscription
    • macOS IMPROVEMENTS/CHANGES:
      • To keep it in sync with Wotja for iOS, the macOS version includes all the related V4.9.0 "under the hood" content related additions such as 10 gorgeous new "Ambience" templates and improved sound patches, these being drawn upon when new random mixes are created
      • In Wotja we now consistently use the term "Free Mode" for features that are restricted when there is no active In-App Subscription
    • iOS/macOS NEW FEATURES:
      • Wotja now allows 3 day FREE TRIAL of a "Wotja" tier In-App Subscription (below), meaning there is a way to give Wotja an in depth evaluation without the Free Use limitations! We are trying this ourselves and will see how it goes! How to get it? See: https://intermorphic.com/wotja/#faq-freetrial
      • Wotja In-App Subscription tiers modified to include new specialist use "XT" tiers that allow extension of the Music Play Time up to 7 days (features/capabilities for customers with existing subscription tiers are either the same or better; Essentials = "Wotja", Pro = "Wotja XT1"). Who are they for? See: https://intermorphic.com/wotja/#faq-xt-extensions

      • Recordings of over 100 bars now possible via a new "Max Bars" Settings control

    • IOS NEW FEATURES:

      • On iPhone 6S and later Wotja now runs at 48 kHz / 24 kHz (toggle in Settings); this is to match the underlying audio hardware rate
      • Note: The Audiobus Latency Control setting will likely need to be set to 1024 frames. We make the same recommendation if using AudioShare or other external audio recording app. When using Audiobus 3 in e.g. AudioShare, you need to select an Audiobus Intermediate Out channel, e.g. 0.
    • IOS IMPROVEMENTS/CHANGES:
      • Fixed: Latency stepper was not visible in Dark mode

    25th May 2017: V4.6.6

    • IOS NEW FEATURES:
      • Wotja for Apple Watch returns!
      • The new Apple Watch app is much simpler than before, and this time the focus is around playing/stopping the currently open Wotja mix or playlist or creating a random mix based on Wotja's mix randomisation settings (3D Touch menu).
    • IOS IMPROVEMENTS/CHANGES:
      • There are now only 3 core Tab views: Cut-Up - for creating cut-up, Mix - for creating generative music mixes and Display - for setting how a Wotja is displayed. Parameters previously accessed via a Piece tab are now accessed via the Piece/Mix button in the Network panel; Parameters previously accessed via a Voice tab are now accessed by tapping on the relevant voice in the Network panel.
      • Play/Stop button: now in the bottom tab bar making it accessible from every screen; playing time is displayed below it.
      • Settings button: now in the bottom tab bar making it accessible from every screen and now includes access to Mix Randomisation settings.
      • Mix Tab: We decluttered the UI by finding solutions that let us remove the bottom toolbar and top status bar.

      • Mix Tab: A selected cell is now indicated with a cell border; tap a selected cell to display the Template selector.
      • Mix Tab: The Tools button has been moved to the top Menu bar which now includes a handy button for mix randomisation.

    14th April 2017: V4.3.0

    • NEW CUT-UP TEXT FEATURES for IOS / macOS
      • Syllables: The rule format has been extended to allow specifying how many syllables you want in a line; this is great for creating Haiku (which are 3 line poems with 5,7,5 syllables) as well as lyric ideas perhaps to fit to a number of notes.
      • The rule format now supports value ranges for word and syllables and also naming of rules.
      • A new rule editor is included that makes it easier to create new rules and modify existing ones.
      • A new (non-editable) Wotja Word Database is included which can be selected instead of the user editable Wotja Word Bank and helps come up with some more unusual word combinations. You can configure this using the new controls in the Library screen (get to it by pressing the button to the left of the slider in the main cut-up screen).
      • A new "Sources Only" cut-up mode that analyses the structure of the Sources text and lets you create cut-up with a more natural feel; in this mode the cut-up is created from Sources ONLY and it uses the active rule (ignoring syllables) but EOL rhyming and word locks are ignored. You can select this using the new button to the left of the main "Cut-Up" button.
    • IOS IMPROVEMENTS/CHANGES:
      • Revised the "Create New" menu items to make it MUCH easier to get going right away. *Wotja Cut-Up* - create a new cut-up without music (you can create a mix later if you want); *Wotja Mix (automatic)* - create a new random mix based on the Randomisation Settings without having to go via the Templates dialog; *Wotja Mix (manual)* - create a mix the old way where you can manually select a file or use a random selection from the tagged paks;* Wotja List (playlist)* - as before.
      • Renamed the "Words" tab to "Cut-Up" and moved it to be the first tab.
      • Renamed the "Design" tab to "Mix".
      • Changed the icon for Mix and Voices tab.
      • In the "Cut-Up" tab renamed the "Cut-Ups" section to "Saved".
      • In Cut-Up Create panel added a new Lock All/Unlock All action menu item.
      • When exporting a cut-up to a tweet, allow the background image in the Wotja file (if any) to be appended to the tweet; the cut-up text can be "baked into" the image if the Display > Text setting is set to "Show Text from Cut-Up"; this is great fun for making and sharing Haiku!
      • Cut-Up character counter now also shows syllables used in each line.
      • Added new "Haiku" rule to the included default cut-up rules.
      • A blank line can now be added to a cut-up by setting the line rule to 0.
      • Bug fixes.
    • macOS IMPROVEMENTS/CHANGES:
      • To use common terminology in both iOS and macOS versions we renamed the 3 panels to be "Cut-Up - Sources", "Cut-Up - Create" and "Cut-Up - Saved".
      • In Cut-Up Create panel added new right click Lock all words/Unlock all words menu items.
      • Cut-Up character counter now also shows syllables used in each line.
      • Added new "Haiku" rule to the included default cut-up rules.
      • A blank line can now be added to a cut-up by setting the line rule to 0.
      • Bug fixes.

    24th March 2017: V4.2.1

    • IOS CHANGES / IMPROVEMENTS:
      • Fixed a couple of potential crashers
      • Fixed potential issue in correctly loading files created with Wotja for macOS
      • Words tab Create screen "cut-up" button press now required for cut-up in new file
      • Now uses correct Liptikl icon for old Liptikl files
      • Fixed several minor bugs

    16th March 2017: V4.2.0

    • IOS NEW CUT-UP TEXT FEATURE:
      • The Cut-Up Text Editor app that was branded Liptikl 2 for iOS is now fully integrated into Wotja and accessible via a new "Words" tab. It can be useful for helping to break "Writer's Block" and is a great fit for the reflective music that Wotja creates. Amongst many other things it can randomly select words drawn from a word pool comprising up to 5 different bodies of text and/or an editable User Word Library and/or an editable Wotja Word Bank. Of the cut-up it creates, it lets you lock words you want to keep before you randomise again and lets you select on-screen cut-up alternatives to quickly change single words. See the updated Wotja User Guide.
      • The 3 Cut-Up sub-views (Sources, Create, Cut-ups) are selected via a segment control at the top in the Words tab.
      • Wotja can open Liptikl files (for it to find them just copy them to your Wotja iCloud folder) but an *active subscription tier is required for the Liptikl File data to be utilised or resaved*.
      • Liptikl files display with special red icon until resaved.
      • Once resaved as a Wotja file, the thumbnail shows the cut-up text in red on a white background (i.e. the standard Liptikl colour scheme) meaning they will start-off look pretty much as they did in Liptikl for iOS.
      • When a new Random Mix is created any TTM voice can now be populated with random words coming from the user-editable Wotja Word Bank, the number of words being added determined by two new Randomization properties found in Randomisation Settings.
      • The TTM Text Editor (Voices > TTM > Text) now includes a powerful Randomise facility that lets you either Shuffle Words (those already there), Shuffle Text (jumble up the characters) or populate with new Random Words, these being selected by the ITE from a word pool consisting of the user-editable Wotja Word Bank and any Sources or optional Word Library you might have configured for that file.
    • IOS CHANGES / IMPROVEMENTS:
      • Design tab moved to far left and Display tab moved to far right.
      • Now we've included Words tab for the Cut-Up Editor, the TTM icon in Design Screen panel selector has been changed to better represent TTM (Text to Music).
      • So you can set what text is shown in the File thumbnail we changed the "Text" button in the Display Tab to display a pop up menu: "Show Text from TTM Voices", "Show Text from Words" and "Change Text Color". When "Show Text from TTM Voices" is selected, you can prevent that text from displaying in Voices > TTM > Display.
      • To make it easier to create interesting new mixes right from the off, the Templates screen "Random?" toggle defaults to on for a new installation and with Paks "WJ4 TTM Players" and "WJ4 Gen Backings" selected.
    • MACOS NEW CUT-UP TEXT FEATURE:
      • The Cut-Up Text Editor app that was branded Liptikl 2 for macOS is now fully integrated into Wotja for macOS. It can be useful for helping to break "Writer's Block" and is a great fit for the reflective music that Wotja creates. See the updated Wotja User Guide.
      • Wotja can open Liptikl files (for it to find them just copy them to your Wotja iCloud folder) but an *active subscription tier is required to resave the Words data*.
      • You can quickly create a random Wotja music mix by pressing the "Music" button. Notes: 1) Wotja for macOS provides no access to any parameter settings and does not let you see or edit the mix that is created (you would need to use Wotja for iOS to do that). 2) Any underlying TTM voice is populated with random words coming from the user-editable Wotja Word Bank. 3) The mix data that is saved to the Wotja file depends on your IAP tier in the same way as in Wotja for iOS.
    • IOS/MACOS NEW NON-SUBSCRIPTION VERSION:
      • Wotja Pro 2017 is for those who are not fans of a subscription model.

    10th March 2017: V4.1.3
