If things go wrong...

Apps can unfortunately go wrong some times with a 'bug'. If or when that happens, we want to squash that pesky bug as soon as we can.

However, if we don't know about it, we cannot fix it. So, we need your help there.

PLEASE CONTACT US (don't assume someone else will!) and provide whatever background to the bug that you can (e.g. how to repeat it etc.) rather than just leaving a "it's broken" review which we cannot respond to, that may not give us the information we need to find out what has gone wrong and, more importantly - does not help us quickly fix things for you.

We have quickly fixed many bugs for the benefit of all as a result of kind people promptly reporting them to us (and we thank them for that!).

Noatikl 2.3+ and Mixtikl 6+

Tip: In Mixtikl 7 / Noatikl 3, to use App Files or Other Content from an earlier version, simply first move it to the Intermorphic Folder (a *flat* folder).

Intermorphic Folder

Our Desktop IM Apps look for Other Content, where used and referenced in an App File, in a specific folder. This allows such content to referenced/used in both mobile and desktop versions of those apps. We call this folder the "Intermorphic Folder". It is a *flat folder* (where tilde [~] or %HOMEPATH% in the pathname below is a shortcut for your user account name).

Mixtikl Note: The "User_Content" folder (Mixer > Mixer Cell > Content button, then ".." and scroll the list to see it at the bottom) is an alias for the "Intermorphic Folder", and is the fastest way to see the files located in it.

The "Intermorphic Folder" is found here:

  • ~/Music/Intermorphic/ (Mac)
  • %HOMEPATH%\Music\Intermorphic\ (Windows)
  • /Intermorphic/ (Android)
    • This is a folder that is at the top level of your *internal* storage card.
    • Note: Depending on your Android device this may also work with an external SD Card if Mixtikl is also installed to that card.
  • Tip: If you are not sure where to find the Intermorphic Folder, use an IM App as follows:
    • Mixtikl: Try saving a .mixtikl or .noatikl file and then take a look to see what folder it appears in.
    • Noatikl (Desktop): From the Menu select Tools > Show Folders > Noatikl Files
    • If you want to use Other Content from an earlier version of Mixtikl or Noatikl, or even your own content in IM Apps, simply move it to the above *flat* folder.
    • IMPORTANT: A flat folder means that *all content* must be at the top level of that folder. It must not be in a subdirectory under it or it will not be found. So, for example, the free Tiklpak AL Collections 1-3 zip file would just go here, alongside any mix files you might have saved or indeed any other content e.g.: ~/Music/Intermorphic/IMTPALLoopEssentials1.zip
  • Tip for NT3+/MT7+: To keep things even tidier on Desktop, you can now create a ‘zips’ folder under the IM Folder above and simply copy your zip files to there, e.g.: ~/Music/Intermorphic/zips/IMTPALLoopEssentials1.zip. Files are still saved to the Intermorphic Folder.

Important: iCloud-supporting Intermorphic Apps can use iCloud synching/backup for "App Files" only. "Other Content" must still be backed up/transfered in/out via the "Intermorphic Folder" below. Refer also to the Backup section at the end.

See the relevant sections below for details on what can be copied, e.g. "App Files" and "Other Content", what IM Apps support iCloud and other useful information and links.


iOS <-> Mac / PC:

Noatikl 2.3+ and Mixtikl 6+ (mobile and desktop versions)

  • See Apple's latest docs on iTunes Apps File Sharing for details on how to copy files (e.g. App Files and Other Content) from iOS to/from Mac/PC and vice-versa.
  • Important iCloud Note: On first start up of an iCloud-supporting iOS apps any App Files that are here will be moved to iCloud (if "iCloud" is selected in the pop up, rather than "Local Storage"). After that, no App Files are saved here and App Files that are copied here will NOT appear in the relevant App's Files screen.
  • Important note for App Files that reference Other Content: So that IM App versions (e.g. mobile, desktop) know where to look for them, when copying Other Content (see below. e.g. WAV files) from your device to your Mac/PC ensure you always put them in the Intermorphic Folder.
  • Tip: You may need to restart the IM App for it to be able to find any new content copied in.
  • Tip: You can also email yourself mixes and recordings, and then import from those, but that is something that has to be done one file at a time.
  • Other Content is shown in the root directory in the right hand side list. Ignore folders called "CompatibleAppsCache" and "intermorphic".
  • Mixtikl Tip: The "User_Content" folder (Mixer > Mixer Cell > Content List, then ".." and scroll the list to see it at the bottom) is an alias for the "Intermorphic Folder", and is the fastest way to see the files located in it (e.g. WAV files).
  • Mixtikl Tip: When WAV files are not in a correctly formatted Pak they will not be pitch shifted or time stretched if you change the mix root or tempo.
  • See the following links for information related to Noatikl 2.3 (or earlier) Desktop (macOS/Windows) or Mixtikl 5 Desktop (macOS/Windows).

Android <-> Mac / PC:

Mixtikl 6+ (mobile and desktop versions)

  • Connect your Android device to your PC or Mac. It will appear in Explorer or Finder as a USB device.
  • With Explorer or Finder, on your device look for the Intermorphic Folder (see below, a top level folder called "Intermorphic" (i.e. NOT /Music/Intermorphic/) on the *internal* storage card of your device).
    • Note: Depending on your Android device this may also be on an external SD Card if Mixtikl is also installed to that card.
  • Copy your App Files and Other Content (see below. e.g. WAV files) to/from this Intermorphic Folder.
  • The "User_Content" folder (Mixer > Mixer Cell > Content List, then ".." and scroll the list to see it at the bottom) is an alias for the "Intermorphic Folder", and is the fastest way to see the files located in it (e.g. WAV files).
  • Important note for App Files that reference Other Content: So that IM App versions (e.g. mobile, desktop) know where to look for them, when copying Other Content (see below. e.g. WAV files) from your device to your Mac/PC ensure you always put them in the Intermorphic Folder (see below).
  • Tip: When WAV files are not in a correctly formatted Pak they will not be pitch shifted or time stretched if you change the mix root or tempo.
  • Tip: You may need to restart Mixtikl for it to be able to find any new content copied in.
  • Tip: When WAV files are not in a correctly formatted Pak they will not be pitch shifted or time stretched if you change the mix root or tempo.
  • Tip: It is easiest to delete files on your Android device using Explorer or Finder but you can also delete them using Menu > Tidy.
  • See the following link for information related to Mixtikl 5 (Android).

App Files:

These are saved by the relevant app with a filename corresponding to that of the app.

When you use iCloud in an iCloud-supporting app these files are all saved to iCloud (see the iCloud FAQ).

  • .noatikl, .mixtikl, .liptikl, .wotja

Other Content:

These are additional files that can be used by an IM app, including being referenced in App Files, and files that can be exported/utilised by an IM App. They are not saved to iCloud and they must be backed up separately.

Files that are exported/utilised by the app are stored locally in the Intermorphic Folder (see below).

It is strongly recommended that files that are referenced by your App Files should be put in the Intermorphic Folder (see below).

  • Noatikl [NT2.5+]

    • Exported/Utilised: .fxm, .tg
    • Referenced: .Zip (Tiklpak/Pak), .SF2, .DLS
  • Mixtikl [MT6+]
    • Exported/Utilised: .WAV, .MIDI, .fxm, .tg
    • Referenced: .Zip (Tiklpak/Pak), .WAV, .Ogg, .SF2, .MIDI, .DLS

iCloud-supporting IM Apps:

  • Noatikl 3.1+ macOS, Noatikl 3.1+ iOS
  • Liptikl 2+ macOS, Liptikl 2+ iOS
  • Wotja 3.2+ iOS
  • Mixtikl 7.1+ iOS

iCloud Drive Folder (Mac):

Noatikl 3.1+ and Liptikl 2+ (macOS)

Our iCloud-supporting Desktop Apps for Mac allow App Files to be saved to and opened from the iCloud Drive folder (see the iCloud FAQ). The folder on Mac macOS is found here:

  • ~/iCloud Drive/Noatikl/ (Mac)
  • ~/iCloud Drive/Liptikl/ (Mac)

Soundfonts (SF2) for IM Apps - where to put them:

You may want to use your own SF2/DLS (“SF2”) in mixes or pieces (“Pieces”) that can play in both Mobile and Desktop IM Apps.

  • If you put and use your SF2 at the top level of the Intermorphic Folder (see above), any Pieces in any App will find them just fine (tip: so that the App can find a SF2 after you have added it, always restart the App).
  • Alternatively, if you have a lot of SF2 and you just want to keep things tidy under the Intermorphic Folder, then, if, all the sf2 are in a flat folder you can just zip the SF2 files and then put that zip file there.
  • Tip for NT3+/MT7+: To keep things even tidier on Desktop, you can now create a ‘zips’ folder under the Intermorphic Folder above and simply copy your SF2 zip files to there, e.g.: ~/Music/Intermorphic/zips/mySF2Collection1.zip.

In any event, make sure you put the SF2 or zip file(s) there before you reference them in your Pieces!

Note: You select the SF2 you wish your Synth Network to use via the PSE Wavetable Unit. The Wavetable Unit SF2 list is alphabetically sorted first on folder names (if present in a zip, see "Zipping with Folders" below) and then on SF2 names.

Zipping with Folders (optional)

We appreciate you may have lots of SF2 you might want to use, or even collections of them and you want to keep things tidy and structured on your PC or even in the Wavetable SF2 list.

You might wish to zip with folders if:

  • you want to have control over the order in which SF2 display in the Wavetable Unit SF2 list (i.e. you might want to easily see all ‘synths’ in one block); or
  • you want to retain the structure of the SF2 grouping (perhaps you have licenced a collections or set from a 3rd party and it is already set out like that)

Say you have the following collection of SF2 files that you want to use in an App (and want to show up in the Wavetable Unit SF2 list like this, too):

mySF2Collection1/drones/drone1.sf2
mySF2Collection1/pads/pad1.sf2
mySF2Collection1/synths/synth1.sf2

To retain that structure you must zip the above directory *such that it keeps the entire folder paths*. You can give this zip any name, maybe something like “mySF2Collection1.zip”

In macOS you can create this zip by right clicking the "mySF2Collection1" folder and selecting “Compress 'mySF2Collection1'”. Alternatively, in Terminal, navigate to the folder above this folder and type:

zip -r mySF2Collection1.zip mySF2Collection1

You can check that the zip has the files you expect in it by typing in terminal:

unzip -t mySF2Collection1.zip

Now, put this zip file *at the top level* of the Intermorphic Folder, restart the App and then create and save Pieces that reference these SF2. If you then move those Pieces between Apps, they should still play just fine (provided you have copied that zip file in of course!).


Backing up:

Note: Using iCloud as your App File backup mechanism is very convenient. It also keeps them in synch across devices and so makes it easy to work with those files in the iOS version of that app.

  • App Files on Mobile Device:
    • If you are using iCloud then we still recommend you occasionally back up your "App Files" that are in the "iCloud Drive" folder. Reason?: Just in case!
    • If you are NOT using iCloud for your App Files (meaning they will be stored locally on your device) we strongly recommend you regularly back them up to an "Intermorphic Folder" on that Mac/Windows PC. You should certainly do this BEFORE you remove an IM App from your device as the process of removal also removes ALL of the Apps' locally stored files.
  • Other Content on Mobile Device: If you have a Mac/Windows PC we strongly recommend you use it to regularly and separately back up your "Other Content" to an "Intermorphic Folder" on that Mac/Windows PC. You should certainly do this BEFORE you remove an IM App from your device as the process of removal also removes ALL of the Apps' locally stored files.
  • iOS specific note: Although making an iTunes backup of your device will back up all your installed apps AND their locally stored data (see: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4946), if you remove and then reinstall an app, its local DATA is not restored: the only way to get back that app's local data is to do a device restore from a backup (See: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1766) - but that also then OVERWRITES ALL device app data with whatever was in the backup. If you want or need to go that route, see this FAQ entry.

Intermorphic apps that support Apple iCloud / iCloud Drive:

  • Noatikl 3.0+ (iOS), Noatikl 3.0+ (macOS)
  • Liptikl 2.0+ (iOS), Liptikl 2.0+ (macOS)
  • Mixtikl 7.0+ (iOS)
  • Wotja 3.2+ (iOS)

iCloud support comes in really handy for two main reasons:

  1. Create and edit on any device: For example, on an iOS device you create a file on device 1 and then edit it further on device 2, and then on macOS work on that file in the desktop version of that app, and vice versa.
  2. Organisation: You can move files around on iOS with the iCloud Drive app or on desktop PC with Finder.

Note on iCloud Drive Subfolders (folders under the main app folder):

Our iOS apps support "flat" folders meaning they will display all files under the root folder, including files in any subfolders.

Tip: If you want to limit what files are displayed in the iOS app, you need to move the files you don't want to see out of the main app folder, perhaps into a "Archived" folder under iCloud Drive.

Apple iCloud Drive FAQ:

See: iCloud Drive FAQ

How to display iCloud Drive on your iOS device home screen:

See: Help using iCloud Drive

Tip: Why can't I see the relevant app folder in my Mac's iCloud Drive folder or in the iCloud Drive on icloud.com?

If you have just installed one of our iCloud Drive supporting apps for the first time, then it seems it can take a while for the iCloud Drive synching to happen and for the folders/files to appear on your Mac. We know not why.... but a couple of suggestions to try are:

  • Sign-in to your iCloud web account (icloud.com) and from the home page select the iCloud Drive icon when you will then be able to see all your iCloud Drive folders. It seems that doing this may cause the relevant app folder to appear soon on the Mac.
  • It may be that the relevent folder is not showing in the above iCloud Drive folder, in which case we have found that if you connect your device to iTunes on your Mac and then perform an iTunes "Sync" for that device, it seems the folders/files then appear straight away under your Mac's iCloud Drive folder and in icloud.com.
  • Sometimes we get reports of partial or corrupt downloads of zip files we make available via our website. We are not entirely sure why, but it seems there is a relationship to the browser you use to make the download.

    If a zip file has not fully downloaded and you attempt to unzip it you will be informed it is corrupt, i.e. you have made a partial download (we list the size of the downloads so that you can check they seem about right). Before attempting to download the zip again, please delete any such previously downloaded version of that zip that might be in your browser cache.

    Browsers:

    • Google Chrome: This does seem to download partial zip files for some reason. Please try downloading the zip file with another browser...
    • Firefox: No known problems.
    • Apple Safari: No known problems.
    • Microsoft Edge: Downloads may only get about halfway and then you see a message that downloads were interrupted. At the bottom of the download screen you should see a “Resume” button. Press this and the download should then complete successfully.

    One other suggestion...

    If you have tried different browsers and are still getting partial downloads then when you go to download the zips, try right clicking on the link and then selecting “Save As” or “Save File As” and putting it somewhere new. This has helped some in the past.

    It is actually quite easy once you know how and have got the hang of it! These instructions assume you have the relevant Intermorphic app already installed on your device. If not, get it now: Wotja 3 / Wotja FREE 3, Noatikl 3, Mixtikl 7 or Liptikl 1.

    Dropbox.com
    Dropbox.com
    Dropbox.com
    Dropbox.com

    There are three main cases:

    Mobile device with free Dropbox App installed (Wotja; recommended for all others)

    Note: You do not need to have a Dropbox account or to be signed in to it for you to use this method, but you must have the Dropbox app installed!

    • Select the Dropbox file link.
    • IMG 1: If you see this then from the displayed Dropbox page select Open in App and then from a popup dialog Open in "Dropbox" select Open.
    • IMG 2: The Dropbox App will load and you will see a page of text starting like e.g WotjaFile... (Wotja File) or noatikl://ptk3.... (Noatikl file). Select the top right action button (arrow pointing up).
    • IMG 3: In the pop up action sheet select "Open in" (found in the bottom row, you may need to scroll).
    • IMG 4: In the list of apps that is shown, select the relevant app for this file e.g. "Copy to Wotja FREE 3" or "Copy to Wotja 3".
    • The app opens and the file is loaded into it, ready for you to use.

    Mobile device without Dropbox App installed (Noatikl / Mixtikl / Liptikl only)

    Note: This method only works for apps that have an import facility, e.g. Noatikl, Mixtikl or Liptikl. It does not work for Wotja which has no file import facility.

    • Select the Dropbox file link and a Dropbox webpage will display.
    • IMG 1: Select the top right "Download" button and then select "Direct download".
    • If you see a Dropbox popup account creation dialog select "No thanks, continue to download".
    • IMG 2: You will see a page of text starting like noatikl://ptk3.... (Noatikl file).. Double tap the text and then select all of it and then "Copy" from the pop up control which will copy it to the clipboard.
    • Open the relevant app e.g. Noatikl (Wotja does not support importing of wotjas from clipboard) and from the relevant screen in that app select "Import".
    • The file is loaded into it, ready for you to use.

    Desktop PC

    • Select the Dropbox file link.
    • In the Dropbox webpage that displays, select the download button which will download the file to your computer and save it as a .txt file; e.g. the myfile.noatikl Noatikl file would be saved as myfile.noatikl.txt.
    • Remove the .txt extension so that the file becomes e.g. a .noatikl file.

    You can share any File you save from an Intermorphic creativity app via Dropbox, allowing others to open and play that File.

    Notes:

    • Dropbox account: You will need a Dropbox account and a PC (iOS Apps: We do not yet include support for iOS Cloud folders so you cannot share directly from our iOS apps).
    • Copyright: Make sure you own the copyright in anything you share.
    • Wotja Background Images: You may first want to strip out an EXIF/Meta data in an image before using it. There are App Store apps that let you do this.

    Steps

    • With one of our creativity apps (Wotja, Noatikl, Mixtikl and Liptikl) create a piece/mix/wotja/recording as relevant and then either:
      1. Email the File to yourself
        • Via an App's relevant Export mechanism, email the File to yourself (tip: you may first want to save your piece/mix/wotja so as to give it a filename).
        • On your PC, open your PC Email application and save out the File from the email.
      2. Use iTunes File Sharing (iOS only)
        • First save your piece/mix/wotja so as to give it a filename.
        • Use iTunes File Sharing to copy the File to your PC.
    • On your PC, copy or move the File to a Dropbox folder from where it will be synched to your Dropbox account.
    • In Dropbox, select that File and then select "Share Dropbox Link". This will create a URL that you can share with anyone and they can then download and play your File (see How do I open/play a Dropbox shared File?).

    If you have purchased one of our tools from our Web store, you will receive an email containing your Customer ID, Order ID and Product Key. If you are having problems getting the Product Key accepted, please try the following:

    • Close all instances of our software (including sequencers using our plugins).
    • Open the version of software for which you have purchased a license (e.g. Standalone, or specific Plugin variant), select Help > Product Key and enter your Customer ID, Order ID and Product Key. We recommend you copy and paste the Product Key and do not try to type it in.
    • Once entered, close the software and restart it.
    • Tip: Do not have any spaces at the end of the Product Key ... or at the start.
    • Problems copying/pasting Product Key?
      • Mac - To paste on the Mac, you must:
        • Right-click in the text box, OR Control-click in the text box
        • ... then select 'Paste' from the pop-up menu
        • Alternatively, click in the text box, and press Cmd-V / Applekey-V (the paste shortcut).
      • Windows - To paste on Windows, you must :
        • Right click in the text box
        • ... then select 'Paste' from the pop-up menu
        • Alternatively, click in the text box, and press Control-V (for paste).
      • We have also had problems reported from Mac users with Microsoft Entourage. The issue is that the Product Key is not being treated as plain text. Try this:
        • run TextEdit (you'll find TextEdit using Finder in the Applications folder)
        • copy the values from Entourage
        • paste the values into TextEdit (where it is set-up to be plain text, *not* RTF format!)
        • copy each value you need from TextEdit
        • paste into noatikl...!
      • See also http://intermorphic.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=263.
    • Tip: If you are still having problems, please contact us and let us know the version numbered displayed in Help About (as well as OS version, how much free disk space you have, how much RAM do you have, the format of your hard disk [e.g. FAT32]).

    If you are having problems getting the Product Key accepted the most likely reason is that you have a space in front of or after the Product Key in the the Product Key field (there should be no space). Also, note that you have to enter the Product Key into each product you wish to use (i.e. Standalone or Plugin).

    Note: If you're running on Windows, and find that Liptikl, Mixtikl or Noatikl don't save their license key when you close the application, use the Windows option to run the program using "Run as Administrator". Enter and save your registration details. Restart the application normally: it should now be fine. If you've got trouble saving the license key for Noatikl or Mixtikl VSTi, you should run the host application (e.g. Reaper) as Administrator, set your license key details, then close the application and restart it normally.

    We try as hard as we can to make our apps stable. If this app does crash on you, then the chances are that for crashes in new apps (released after Jun 2014) we will get reports from the HockeyApp integrated crash reporting system. Because of this, we have the best chance of fixing crashers and so our latest versions are likely to be the most stable. This is one reason we recommend that you always update your Intermorphic apps to the latest version, where your device/OS allows.

    If you are using an earlier app then you can still send us a crash log so that we can investigate and try to fix the problem (for all users). The crash log files all start with the app name, and have an extension "crash". They are text files that we can read, and give us useful information in tracking-down a crash.

    Please send the text in them to us via our feedback form, and don't forget to tell us what you were doing when you had the crash! Hopefully we will be able to fix the crash in the next update.

    Here is how you get the crash log files:

    Crash logs on Mac Desktop

    Note: Also refer to this article.

    To find a log file, in Finder open:

    ~/Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports/

    You may have to hold down the option key when using the Go menu in the Finder to open the Library folder (this is needed on Lion and above).

    Crash logs on Windows 7

    See this article.

    Crash logs on Windows 8 / 10

    Open Event Viewer, then go to Windows Logs -> Application and look for errors.

    Crash logs on iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad

    Note: Also refer to this article.

    • Sync your device to iTunes. This will copy the crash logs (all appeneded as .crash) automatically from your device to your computer.
    • You'll find the relevant app crash logs on your computer in one of the following locations:

      Mac macOS:
      ~/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/MobileDevice/<YOUR_DEVICE>
      (the tilde ~ in the pathname is a shortcut for your user account name.

      To find the log file, open ~/Logs/CrashReporter/MobileDevice/ in the Finder and look for a file appended .crash

      • Note: You may have to hold down the option key when using the Go menu in the Finder to open the Library folder (this is needed on Lion and above). e.g. /Users/jdoe/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/MobileDevice/John Doe’s iPhone/Noatikl_2013-01-29-200048_John-Does-iPhone.crash
      Windows 7 / 8 / 10:
      <drive>:\Users\<YOUR_NAME>\AppData\Roaming\Apple 
                            computer\Logs\CrashReporter/MobileDevice/<YOUR_DEVICE>

    We strongly recommend backing up your content before removing an app from your iOS device, but you are here as you probably did not do that.

    You can get your files back if you made an iTunes backup at some point, a backup that contains your Mixtikl/Noatikl files. You need to get the Mixtikl/Noatikl files you want from that backup and copy them off the device. Then, you need to copy them back again. Note that IAP purchase keys are also stored in a backup, but these can be more easily recovered via a Restore in the Mixtikl Store or Noatikl Store, as relevant.

    The way an iTunes Restore works is that ALL data in the backup is restored to your device, so if you are restoring an old backup (say something from 3 months ago), it will overwrite everything that you have on your device today. So proceed carefully.

    This is the order in which you need to do things (but we are not liable if anything goes wrong!):

    • Back up your device to iTunes now (see: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1766), to create a TODAY backup of you devices as it is today - and make sure you can see that this backup is there (see: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4946).
    • Restore your device from an OLDER backup, that you think contains your files
    • Follow the Copy Out (from Device) instructions from here to create backup copies of your IM App files to your computer.
    • Restore your device to your TODAY backup.
    • Follow the Copy In to Device instructions from here to copy your IM App files back onto your device.
    • Open your IM App and you should be able to access the files you have just copied on to it!

    Yes you can! Follow these instructions:

    • Install Wine from your normal Linux package installer.
    • Download the Liptikl / Mixtikl / Noatikl etc. zip for Windows as required.
    • Extract the downloaded zip file to your system.
    • Run the relevant setup.exe program using Wine Windows Program Loader (right-click on the file, select the appropriate option...) ...
    • Ignore any install-time warnings you see about registering the Mixtikl browser plugin.
    • Run the standalone application - you can find this from menu Wine ->Programs -> Intermorphic (Mixtikl/Liptikl/Noatikl), or at .wine/drive_c/Program Files/intermorphic/mixtikl/mixtikl.exe (for example).
    • It should all work just fine! Noatikl however: to get output from Noatikl, will require you to configure your Linux MIDI configuration to suit - this is entirely up to the user to figure-out! - do please let us know how you get on here via our forums. See http://wiki.winehq.org/MIDI for outline instructions....
    • If you try out the Liptikl, Mixtikl or Noatikl trial versions and then decide you like it and want to continue using it - please buy a license from us! :).
    • NB: Files are are saved to e.g. ~/intermorphic/mixtikl/paks/User_Content/abcdefg.mixtikl.

    Licensing FAQ

    We try to provide here answers to any common licensing questions. If you have a question you need an answer to concerning licensing of our products, and it is not answered here, try also contacting us.

    Broadly speaking, we have tried to draft our Software EULAs to be flexible for you. We don't want our licence to get in the way of you working and coming up with great ideas.

    So, if you have 2 computers and have purchased the relevant licences and relevant versions of the Software are available to download direct from the intermorphic.com website you can install and use that software on both of them (but not use the software simultaneously on both, though!).

    With the relevant licence and where relevant versions of the Software are available to download direct from the intermorphic.com website you can install and use both Mac and Windows versions of the software, too, including if your computers are dual boot Win/Mac systems.

    Please note that Noatikl, Mixtikl and Liptikl for Mac are now only available from the Mac App Store, which has different licencing terms.

    If you have licenced a full product or purchased the "Save, Export, Clipboard" in app purchase in an older Freemium version (and please note that Educational versions may not be used for commercial or business purposes) the general answer is yes, but be aware of the following qualifications:

    1. With respect to recordings made of pieces or mixes that you have created using content from the Included Intermorphic Generative Tiklpaks (refer to the Tiklpak EULA) then yes you do own the recordings as we own all the generative content in the foregoing paks (and of course you are allowed to modify the generative parameters in any of the templates, too). If you mix the foregoing with other content then you will only own the recordings if you definitely have the necessary rights and comply with any licencing terms for that additional content. Note: See also the EULA and also in that note clause 5 concerning "Intermorphic Wavetable" which applies to all included Intermorphic SF2/DLS wavetables.

    2. If you are referring to recordings made of mixes using or featuring audio content from Tiklpaks in Tiklpak Collections 1-3 and/or the LoopBeats 2 Tiklpak (see the Tiklpak EULA which includes content we licence from a 3rd party, then you will need to pay particular attention to the clause in relevant licence for those Tiklpaks:

      "You may mix together content from the Tiklpak, modify Template parameter settings, and combine content from the Tiklpak with other content over which you have the requisite rights, in order to create your own Noatikl, Mixtikl, Wotja or Partikl files (variously "Files"), IM Software Music URLs (variously "Music URLs") and audio or MIDI mix recordings (variously "New Content"). You are free to distribute the New Content provided (i) the New Content constitutes an original work (ii) you have the necessary distribution rights in any third party content (iii) any Music URLs you self-publish or distribute in any way comply with the Intermorphic Website Terms of Service (http://intermorphic.com/tos) and (iv) individual sound samples are not used in isolation." and "You may not use content from the Tiklpak to create music libraries for distribution to third parties and you may not modify any included 3rd party sound samples."

      With respect to the Tiklpaks above, if you are wanting to create music libraries of any kind, then you would not be licenced to do that. Similarly, if any of the sound samples are used in isolation (i.e. not mixed against another sample playing at the same time), then you would not be licenced to do that.

      If you also include other content in your mix then you will only own the recordings if you definitely have the necessary rights and comply with any licencing terms for that additional content.

    We cannot give any legal interpretations of the licence (*we are not lawyers*), but we hope the pointer helps. At the end of the day, you would need to comply with all the terms of the licenses and have a valid licenced version. If you do feel you need an interpretation you would need to ask a lawyer.

    Of course not (but please note that Educational versions may not be used for commercial or business purposes)! However, please do ensure you comply with the licence terms for any Tiklpak and/or 3rd party content you use in your recordings.

    Yes, you can use Mixtikl and Noatikl in live performance, provided you are doing the performance (i.e. you are present and interacting with the software) and you have a valid licenced version. We have some specific wording to cater for that, generally under Clause 3.5 (the same wording in all Mixtikl and Noatikl licences), e.g from the Mixtikl for Windows EULA.

    "You may NOT use the Software for any public performance, live broadcast or time delayed live broadcast unless you have purchased a valid licence to use the Software and, where you are not present and interacting with the Software and the Software is being used for commercial purposes, you have also purchased the additional valid relevant performance licences."
