Intermorphic Mixtikl

Intermorphic has announced the release of Mixtikl 4.0, the generative music lab & modular synth for the desktop and iOS.

It brings drill-down parameter editing of core Noatikl parameters, allowing you to customise all included generative content. Messing with patterns and pattern randomisation can be a lot of fun for generating new riff ideas and arps. The Noatikl parameter editor is primarily aimed mainly at Noatikl users who are familiar with Noatikl for PC/Mac, which is also recommended for constructing pieces from scratch. That said, if you are into experimenting and you don’t know Noatikl, there is a still a ton to mess with!

Changes in Mixtikl 4.0

  • New: Integrated drill-down Noatikl parameter editor for generative content customisation:
    • All of the core Noatikl parameters are available for real-time editing.
    • All changes saved when you save the mix, which can be tweeted.
    • Pattern editing with text editing of sub-patterns and randomisation options.
    • 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.

Mixtikl 4.0 is available to purchase for the desktop for $24.95 USD; the iOS version is $7.99 USD. The update is free for licenced owners of Mixtikl 2.x/3.x.

Intermorphic Noatikl / Liptikl

Intermorphic has released version 1.8.0.6 of generative music software Noatikl and song, music & rap lyrics generator Liptikl to version 1.1.2.0.

Changes in Noatikl v1.8.0.6

  • Added (often-requested) per-file multi-level Undo/Redo for parameter edits. Certain actions clear the file’s undo/redo buffer, e.g. object add/delete/rename.

    Parameters:

    • Articulation (min).
    • Articulation range.
    • Articulation variation (min).
    • Articulation variation range.
  • Mac: Fixed problem with auto-loading via Finder file double-click.

ToneCarver Nova 3 (alpha) generative sequencer

ToneCarver Nova 3

Bill Davies has released an alpha version of ToneCarver Nova 3, a generative sequencer inspired by Otomata (by Batuhan Bozkurt) that uses cellular automata to generate emergent sequences of midi notes.

The idea is that a set of rovers move through a matrix of cells until they encounter a wall, another rover, or an obstacle. When a rover encounters a wall, it emits a midi note corresponding to the row and column, then reverses direction. When a rover encounters another rover, both rovers are rotated clockwise. When a rover encounters an obstacle, the effects of the obstacle are applied to the rover which could alter its position, its direction, both, or neither depending on the type of obstacle.

Nova 3 is available as a free download for Windows (VST).

Sineqube releases Petri generative sample player for Mac

Sineqube Petri

Sineqube has released Petri, a sample player that generates its own sequences and selects up to eight random samples from a folder of your choosing.

It was designed to create glitchy, IDM-inspired drum patterns very quickly. More than simply creating randomized sequences, Petri uses a series of probability algorithms that respond to however sparse or dense you would like the patterns to be, simply by dragging a slider.

If you prefer, all randomization can be turned off, and Petri can instead be used as a traditional sample player with sequences input by hand using a familiar 8×8 matrix editor. With a quick-start guide built into the program, mouse-over hints over most features, and a full manual, you’ll be creating patterns that rival your favorite electronic musicians in no time.

Petri v1.0 features

  • Probabilistic randomization — control how sparse or dense you want your randomized sequences to be.
  • Randomized pitch, sample choice, sequencing, and granular playback makes creating unpredictable percussion loops an effortless walk in a serendipitous park.
  • Load a folder of aif or wavs to populate 8 channels of sequencing.
  • Disengage all randomization to use Petri like a traditional sample player.
  • Familiar 8 x 8 sequence grid enables quick sequence building on the fly.
  • Hot keys for most-used functions allow for easy live performing.
  • Extensive mouse-over hint system, quick start guide, and full manual makes Petri very easy to learn.
  • Signal-rate synced tempo provides accurate timing.
  • Tap-tempo.
  • Auto-filtering with randomization features.
  • Preset saving.
  • Record to disk.

Petri for Mac is available to purchase for $30 USD.
