Intermorphic updates Noatikl to v1.6.0.5 and Mixtikl to v2.1.0.16

Intermorphic Noatikl

Intermorphic has released updates for its generative music tools for Windows and Mac, Noatikl and Mixtikl.

Noatikl is a powerful, easy to use generative music software tool that helps you come up with new music and song ideas – and your own generative music.

The open Mixtikl system uniquely lets you easily mix together generative “parts” with loops & sound FX to create your own custom mixes. Mixtikl 2 is already packed with power and yet is still young as a tool.

Changes in Noatikl v1.6.0.5

  • Fixed – Noatikl problems registering Noatikl VSTi (especially on Mac, probably Windows).

Changes in Mixtikl since v2.1.0.10

  • Intermittent crashes that occurred when loading new/open mixes (affected all platforms).
  • VSTi registration problem that might have affected Mixtikl.
  • Improved: Updated the Partikl “Most Recently Used” (MRU) file dialog (e.g. as used when launching Partikl) to tell user what to do if no items are in the MRU list.
  • Improved: Speeded up display of most dialogs.

Ohm Force announces Ohm Studio

Ohm Force Ohm Studio

Ohm Force has announced Ohm Studio, a standalone real-time collaborative music making application (DAW/sequencer) in addition to a web based collaboration platform and a music driven online Cohmunity.

In 2000, a bunch of music geeks gathered around their computers, only to find themselves guided by a strange and mysterious power — the power of Ohm Force. It revealed to them the essence of audio processing which they used to create the now mythical Ohm plug-ins.

But they had a secret goal! This secret and long term task was to venture beyond the plug-in world and explore the other dimension of sound creation: those humanoid artists that play with computers. Thus Ohm Force, by the sweat and steel of its humble, sandwich-peddling warriors, has been laboring to conceive a new type of music workstation — one that will bring real time creative harmony to the world.

Yes, you read that right: Ohm Force is announcing the first real collaborative music workstation in the history of music production: the Ohm Studio — a project with which they aspire to redefine the meaning of online music collaboration. Yay.

Ohm Studio will feature real time collaborative MIDI/audio editing, envelopes, a piano roll, audio effects, virtual instruments, interface innovation, integrated web cohmunity, server based projects, undo/versioning and much more.

Ohm Studio is scheduled for release by the end of 2010, after a period of beta testing (starts Q3 2010).

Intermorphic updates Mixtikl to v2.0.1.0

Intermorphic Mixtikl 2

Intermorphic has released version 2.0.1.0 of Mixtikl, a generative music mixer for mobile, web & tweets.

Changes made have primarily been concerned with improving usability, and making it much easier to get started with a new mix.

Changes in Mixtikl v2.0.1.0

  • New Random and New Empty have been added to all the included Tiklpaks; selecting New Random will create new mix populated from all the available content.

  • Get Paks (was first item in mixes) now moved to More Mixtikl menu, again to simplify making new mixes.
  • Tapping top _right_ in Mixer screen does not now load the main menu (which was confusing), and the tooltip text is now yellow to show it relates to the highlighted cell.

Intermorphic releases Mixtikl 2

Intermorphic Mixtikl 2

Intermorphic has released Mixtikl 2, a generative music mixer for mobile, web & tweets.

With its magical mix of sound sources, FX and music engines, Mixtikl 2 has firmly ushered in the “tweet mix revolution”. You may not believe your ears, but the 140 characters of a tweet really are easily enough for Mixtikl to play infinite music mixes of a quality that will astound and entertain you. We call the tweets mix “tikls” ["tickles"]. It plays tunes & sound fx tikls, too!

How is it done you ask? The boffins at Intermorphic built upon the vector audio techniques they pioneered back in 2000 where they found a way to deliver a sound in 300 bytes. Now they’ve found a way to play entire 12 track mixes in a tweet, loaded with FX and mix settings too!

It is a snap to create your own mix tikls, from chillout ambient to ear bashing beats, which you can tweet, email and embed in webpages.

Our generative music heritage means Mixtikl 2 presently excels at ambient mixes, but we also want to make sure it does what you want – let us know!

Mixtikl 2 for Mac OS X and Windows desktop (launch price of $19.99 USD) comprises a stand-alone version, a VST and AU plug-in for music sequencers, and a plug-in for web browsers. The Mixtikl browser plug-in allows tikls or more advanced and customised mixes to be played in a web page. Mixtikl 2 for Windows mobile (launch price of $4.99 USD) is available at launch for both Windows mobile Pocket PC and Smartphone.

Mixtikl 2 for iPhone / iPod touch is to be submitted to Apple iTunes within days.

Slashdot launches Firehose

Related: , , , , Posted in random posts on Aug 03, 2007 - comment 0 comments

Slashdot has launched Firehose, a collaborative system designed to allow users to assist Slashdot editors in the story selection process.

From Slashdot:

The hose contains submissions, RSS Feeds, journals and Slashdot stories, each color-coded along the color spectrum to indicate popularity. Red is hot, violet is not.

Slashdot Firehose
Slashdot Firehose

This seems pretty similar to the way Digg lets you digg or bury a story, except with Firehose you get a nice interface to select which stories you want to see by using the Firehose’s color filter.

Pete Cashmore writes:

Most likely, this will be seen simply as a Digg/Reddit clone. What Slashdot needs to understand is that the power of social news sites comes directly from how much traffic they drive: if a site drives traffic, bloggers will inevitably add favicons so readers remember to bookmark articles.

I don’t frequent Slashdot anymore, but when I used to a few years ago, the stories on Slashdot were on a much higher tech/geek level than Digg’s tech section ever was. Sure, Digg has a Technology and Science section, but a lot of these stories seem to have more entertainment value than anything else.

To illustrate, when I just opened the science section on Digg I get the following three stories:

  1. Cool lenses (no idea what that’s about from the story title, turns out to be about colored contacts)
  2. Marijuana Does Not Cause Psychosis, Lung Damage, or Skin Cancer
  3. 5 Summer Sex Positions That Could Get You Hospitalized. Or Arrested

Slashdot‘s science section features:

  1. Monkeys and Humans Learn the Same Way
  2. New Theory Explains Periodic Mass Extinctions
  3. Building Artificial Bone

Not quite to same to me…
