Mixtikl 7 Generative Music & Loop Mixer with 12 Track Cell Sequencer arrives

It is great to see a new version of Mixtikl on the app store, I am really looking forward to trying this out. For now, here are all the details of Mixtikl 7 together with the videos released today as well.

Enjoy …

Love working with generative music or audio loops? Create something new by mixing them together! Users say of Mixtikl: “the premier generative music app”, “highly inspiring”, “musical antidote to every other synth and DAW I’ve ever used”, “works on so many levels.”,”Enjoyable, addictive, creative and helpful.”, “Love this app, one of my favorites!”

WHAT OTHERS SAY
Computer Music Magazine said Mixtikl’s end results are “in a class of their own when it comes to generative music”.

WHAT IS MIXTIKL?
It’s a dedicated multi-platform generative music editor, mixer, arranger and cell sequencer. It includes many modifiable generative music templates that you can easily mix together. Sound generation is via the Partikl Sound Engine, a powerful stereo sound source comprising a modular synth with Soundfont (SF2)/DLS support + live FX.

WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH IT…
Generate high quality, user-customisable, royalty & loop free background music from ambient (relaxation / drone / sleep / meditation etc.) right through to more intense melodic and beat-based loop-tastic EDM mashups using your own or 3rd party loops.

TOP NEW FEATURES IN V7

  • Many gorgeous new templates that take advantage of the uprated Partikl Sound Engine 3 (PSE 3)
  • Major PSE 3 enhancements:
    • Now supports stereo and more advanced synth & fx networks, allowing richer & more interesting sonic capabilities and complete sound “presets”
    • Network Editor and all 17 PSE Sound & FX unit UIs have been significantly reworked for much easier use, control and accessibility
    • Greatly improved Wavetable Sound Unit now supports stereo SF2 (SoundFont) samples (up to 24bit), allows modulation of pitch, pan, amp & portamento parameters + has integrated envelope editor (linear/log) – all useful for sound shaping
    • Improved the PSE-included IM SF2 wavetables with extended “IM Synths” and all new “IM NT3-MT7”

Noatikl 3 Generative Music Composer & MIDI Generator System has arrived!

It is no secret that I am a big fan of the work that Intermorphic do and have done over the years. In fact I think I’ve known of their work for nearly 10 years and I’ve known Tim from Intermorphic for the last few years, and we were talking about the latest release of Noatikl the last time we got together for a few drinks and dinner.

So it’s great to see the latest version of Noatikl come to iOS (and OSX too).

Love creating generative music or discovering new ideas? Get Noatikl, an immensely deep & powerful app for generative MIDI music composition AND sound design. Users say of Noatikl: “the only serious generative music composition tool on IOS”, “Very deep, very unique and intelligent. Good MIDI implementation.”, “by far the most unique and complex modular music maker in the AppStore. You’ll get addicted!”, “5 stars is not enough.”

WHAT OTHERS SAY
Computer Music Magazine described Noatikl, our evolution of SSEYO Koan Pro, as “One of the best interactive composition tools on the market” and said “Noatikl picks up where Captain Eno’s beloved Koan left off”.

WHAT IS NOATIKL?
It’s a 16 track MIDI generating powerhouse with 120+ parameters & many included generative music templates. Sound generation is via the integral Partikl Sound Engine, a powerful stereo sound source comprising a modular synth with Soundfont (SF2)/DLS support + live FX, but Noatikl also supports MIDI out if instead you want to drive external MIDI synths/samplers etc.

WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH IT…

  • Use it to help break composer’s block with new melodies & ideas
  • Experiment with generative (MIDI) music composition and sound design
  • Create high quality, royalty-free, totally custom generative music / soundscapes: ambient, drone, relaxation, experimental etc.
  • Play / control external MIDI synths, samplers and other MIDI controllable units
  • Use your own SF2 in the Partikl Sound Engine
  • Create / share / edit Noatikl pieces for use in Mixtikl (not included)

Launchpad for iOS Announces ‘Remix This’ Competition

I’m fairly sure I’ve mentioned this already, but with less than two weeks to go now I thought I should give you another shout that it’s on and worth taking a look at especially if you’re a LaunchPad user.
