Mixtikl now released!

Mixtikl Logo

Wow - at long last! Mixtikl is finally out of the door. And before Christmas, too!

With the software finally released, it was a real treat to sit-back and relax by simply playing with Mixtikl for a while, mixing-up the paks and generative music elements. Frankly, it sounds amazing and is a blast to use.

Do try out some of the Noatikl generative music items in the Tiklpak Cinematic 120d, which is one of two Tiklpaks that comes embedded with Mixtikl. The generative items show up as red in the content list. They make for amazing backing sounds! :

So, onwards and upwards from here. We already have lots of things we want to improve, and lots of things we want to add (including many more Tiklpaks!), and we also want to take a look at Noatikl and Liptikl. 2009 should be very busy, but hopefully not as frenetic as 2008!

Mixtikl now in Beta

Well, we're almost at the finishing line ... Mixtikl is now in Beta, and we can't be more than a week from the full release. Thank goodness!

Mixtikl is easily the most complicated piece of software I have ever created! The last time I checked, there was more than half-a-million lines of code in there ... and then there are all Tim's skins and the Tiklpaks and the documentation we've had to create... this has certainly been a labour of love!

Keep an eye on the Mixtikl site for the draft user guide and lots more information! The user guide is ever expanding, and hopefully makes for an interesting read...

I'm looking forward to porting to Symbian Series 60 during my Christmas holidays (yeah, I really know how to enjoy myself!). I've already completed most of the iPhone port, in case we ever decide to release on that platform...
