How to Share a 'Wotja'

What can you share?

You can share any Wotja mix that you have created (or you have permission to share)! It could be auto-generated or could be completely custom, using multi-cell mixes, custom WME parameter and rule settings, custom WAE sound and FX networks, cut-up text for Text-to-Music, animated background or a custom image and even include Wotja Script. It's up to you, be as experimental as you like!

The free version is both a creator and player so why not get Wotja now, create a Wotja mix, and share it - it's easy! Go on!

Instructions

Notes: Requires Wotja - Get Wotja Now .

  1. Create a Wotja mix file (.wotja) https://intermorphic.com/wotja/tutorials/item/create-mix-export.html
  2. To share as an email attachment:
    • Just attach the .wotja file to your email.
  3. To share in a webpage as a file download:
    • Change the file extension of your .wotja file to .skd (e.g. change mywotja.wotja to mywotja.skd).
    • Upload that .skd file to your website
    • Link to it in a webpage as e.g. <a href="mywotja.skd">Name of your file</a>.
  4. To share as a WJURL in a webpage for direct loading:
    • Pro FS only: Export your Wotja file to the clipboard (but see tip below).
      • See the Tutorial "Export a Mix to Clipboard".
      • This shows how to export a Wotja file to clipboard as a Wotja URL ('WJURL').
      • WJURLs are text files that start with wotja://. They are really a kind of deep link and can be just a few kilobytes (unless you include a background image).
      • The WJURL text includes all the WME and WAE settings, text, script and rules etc. required by Wotja to play your mix or box and generate its music. It can also include a background image if you have used one but it does not include any custom audio data such as SF2 or Loops.
      • Tip: Wotja mix files that include a background image and that you "Export with Image" will create large WJURLs. You might wish to share such files as downloadable files rather than as embedded WJURLS - but that is up to you, too.
      • Tip: If you do not have a Pro FS, open your Wotja file in a text editor and copy all the text to clipboard.
    • Paste the text into a weblink (<a href="paste-your-WJURL-here">Name of your file</a>).
  5. If you get stuck, see the WJURL example above

Advanced: If your Wotja file or WJURL references content in an add-on Pak then, provided that Pak is located in the Wotja folder on your listener's device then it will play as expected.
