Wotja Icon

March 21st 2024, UK: Intermorphic Ltd announces a major update of Wotja, its powerful system for on-device generation of Live Generative Music & MIDI. V24.1 features an updated Wotja URI format with API command support for Developers, Wotja URI player and lots more...

Wotja is for iOS®, iPadOS®, macOS®, tvOS®, Windows®, Android®, Fire OS® and watchOS®. iOS/iPadOS/macOS & Windows Apps are AUv3/VST3 Hosts & include AUv3/VST3 Plug-ins respectively.

Wotja small 'W' iconWotja 24.1 Key Changes (see table)

This free update sees revised Wotja URI formats with API command support which make it much easier for Wotja Artists to share their creations and for 3rd Party Developers to now experiment with using Wotja (and extended Wotja Script support) to generate live generative background music for an App/Game.

In both cases the WJURI is played by Wotja in a new built-in URI Player. There are also many improvements to usability including new Quick Start and Share screens. In Wotja for Windows there is now support to set both the Wotja Documents folder and VST3 Plug-in search path.

In Wotja 24.1 it is a snap to share and play Wotja URIs - see the Wotja URI examples.

Tim Cole & Pete Cole, the Intermorphic founders and brother team said “There is a huge amount in this update and it has been a massive undertaking to pull together. We hope Wotja Artists enjoy sharing their creations and we look forward to seeing how App/Game Developers might use the new capabilities.”

About Intermorphic (press contact):

Intermorphic Ltd was co-founded in 2007 by Tim Cole and Pete Cole. It develops Wotja, a powerful system for on-device generation of Live Generative Music & MIDI. Amongst other things, it uses generative music, text-to-music, scripting & cut-up techniques.

The Cole brothers ("the Coles") have a history in music software innovation: they co-founded SSEYO in 1990 and from then to 2001 they created and worked on the BAFTA Award-winning "SSEYO Koan Interactivity Platform" which included the "Generative Music" engine used by Brian Eno for his seminal 1996 "Generative Music 1". SSEYO Koan software was available for Windows, Mac and Windows Mobile and in a range of variants from Standalone to Audio Plugin to Web Browser Plugin.

Following Tao Group's acquisition of SSEYO in 2001, the Coles created the intent Sound System (iSS) and BAFTA Award-winning "SSEYO miniMIXA", one of the world's first mobile music mixers.

The Coles subsequently co-founded Intermorphic Ltd in 2007 and went on to clean room develop and release "Noatikl: Generative Music Composer" (the evolution to SSEYO Koan) as well as the all new "Liptikl: Cut-Up Text Writer". In Q2 2008 Intermorphic secured the IP rights to the iSS and SSEYO software and in December 2008 released "Mixtikl: Generative Music Mixer" followed in 2012 by "Tiklbox: Generative Music Player".

After many years of updates to the forgoing apps and after much deliberation on the next step forward for Generative Music, the Coles decided that it was "Reflective Music". And so in 2014 along came the first of the many releases of Wotja®, a powerful system for on-device generation of Live Generative Music & MIDI. Ever since its first release, Wotja and its WME (Music), WAE (Audio), WSE (Script) and WTE (Text) engines have continued to be extended with many new features and improvements.
