9th December 2009
Intermorphic has announced the release of version 2.0 of Mixtikl, the "Generative Music Mixer for Mobile, Web and Tweets" (the released version is actually v220.127.116.11).
Intermorphic says that Mixtikl 2 "proves that the 140 characters of a tweet really are easily enough to play infinite generative music mixes of superb quality and entertainment value". Intermorphic call the generative music mix tweets "tikls" ["tickles"], but Mixtikl can also play short chorded tunes & sound fx tikls as well.
The Intermorphic founders have 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 have found a way to play entire 12 track mixes in a tweet, where the real fun is in making and tweeting one's own tikls.
All Mixtikl versions (see below) include over 100 generative "parts" that can be added to a mix, over 30 loop beats, a MIDI DLS wavetable synth and over 50 FX presets and 75 Synth presets. Intermorphic's generative music heritage means Mixtikl 2 presently excels at ambient mixes, with the range of technology under the hood allowing it to create much more.
Pricing & Availability
Mixtikl 2 for Mac OS X and Windows desktop (launch price of $19.99) 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) 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.
