H.G. Fortune releases free GhostMachine WoF Edition 2012 + Contest

H.G. Fortune has introduced GhostMachine WoF Edition 2012, a free virtual instrument in celebration of its anniversary.

H.G. Fortune GhostMachine WoF Edition 2012
GhostMachine WoF Edition 2012 free algorithmic instrument for Windows.

As May 6th is on a sunday this year it is a good day for a surprise in reconnecting to the past some way. The circle of the spiral crosses the point where it all began: HGFortune’s very 1st public VSTi ‘Wheel of Fortune’ or WoF! In reminiscense to this after about 9 years here is a worthy successor GhostMachine WoF Edition 2012 which is an offspring of the bigger project GhostMachine.

GhostMachine WoF Edition 2012 ties some links to it’s predecessor in having a Bass & HiSq part, a scale based algorithmic composing system, a pattern based sequencer with 2 x 8 steps instead of 4 and with the note pattern being editable. And what is most important it does have that very special vivid groovy feel back. And, yes, as of May 6th GhostMachine WoF Edition 2012 is free!

H.G. Fortune has also announced a contest in which you are asked to create note patterns for a chance to win Ghost Machine Pro (scheduled for release around May 18th, 2012) and additional plugins.

Taco van Dijk has updated the Changeling sequencer app for iOS to v1.1

Taco van Dijk Changeling

Changeling is the super easy, flexible, diatonic chord sequencer.

It’s purpose is to help people enjoy composing music by providing the basic tools to improvise!
Improvisation is a skill that can normally only be obtained by investing a lot of discipline and time in to studying music theory and practice.

Changeling does not generate compositions for you, you remain in full creative control over your music. All recorded musical notes remain relative, and can be changed in various ways during playback.

Changes in Changeling v1.1

  • Tracks:
    • 16; one for each midi channel.
    • all parameters for each track in a sequence are saved & recalled.
    • lock scales and root notes per track, independently (longpress gesture).
    • cycle through tracks by swiping up and down the pattern area
  • copy/paste & clear patterns, works between sequences (longpress gesture).
  • multiple undo / redo, state is saved each time you switch from record to playback.
  • quantization while recording patterns.
  • midi export via email (records all parameter changes & midi channel info).
  • support for custom soundfonts; Open them in changeling via Dropbox or Email for example. The internal sampler is still monophonic though.
  • fast sequence switching (by swiping left and right in the pattern area).
  • memory; Soundfonts are unloaded in MIDI mode.
  • bugfixes, one relating to a MIA scale.

Changeling for iOS is available to purchase for $4.99 USD.

Intermorphic releases Mixtikl 5 Generative Music Lab with Words, Visualizer and Tap Play

Intermorphic has introduced Mixtikl 5, a generative music application.

Intermorphic Mixtikl

Intermorphic Ltd today releases Mixtikl 5 Generative Music Lab, a unique combination of 12 Track Mixer, multiSynth, Live FX and Visualizer with Word display allowing social sharing of “mixtikls”, tweetable interactive generative music mixes that can include 140 characters of text and a range of visualization and display settings. Tweeted or email shared “mixtikls” can be played and enjoyed in the relevant variant of Mixtikl™ or Mixtikl Free. There are versions of Mixtikl for Apple® iPad®, iPhone®, iPod touch®, Mac OS® and Microsoft® Windows®.

With Mixtikl 5, Intermorphic™ has also made it much easier to create the ambient, relaxing and high quality generative music mixes that provide the musical backdrop for the mixtikl’s included text, which could be a reflective Haiku, a short poem, a greeting or other message. The mixtikl plays when it is imported to into Mixtikl on an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, Mac or PC, or the Mixtikl browser plug-in and the recipient can then tap the screen to reveal the message and even play along. The tweeted or email email shared “mixtikls” include everything that is needed for playback, including the short messages, visualizer settings & play along generative music mixes.

None of the power of Mixtikl 4 has been lost, as the music mixes and new tap play instruments can also be totally customised with the powerful and comprehensive arrangement, sound, FX and parameter editors accessible from the Mixer screen in Mixtikl full. Sound designers and generative artists will be able to create completely unique, distinctive, shareable and interactive sonic experiences. With their “fun factor” and total customisability, mixtikls have the potential to become a new art form.

Mixtikl 5 is available for iPad / iPhone / iPod touch, Mac, and Windows (free editions also available).

    • Import Noatikl files (created with Noatikl desktop, available separately) from the clipboard.
    • Save Noatikl files to User Content folder.
    • New Noatikl Seed pak, containing simple Noatikl voice type definitions.
  • Improved: Now much easier export of mixtikls for tweeting.
  • Improved: Simplified behaviour of the More menu.
  • Improved: On first load-up for most variants, auto-load and auto-start a demo mix.
  • Improved: Look of list items and FX network editor.
  • Improved: Added Clear Cell item to the Clear menu.
  • Bug fixes and general improvements.
  • See also the 4.0.0.3 release details on Mixtikl forum.
