How it works:
Noatikl uses a range of generative, aleatoric, stochastic & algorithmic music techniques and parameters to generate its MIDI music notes and controller information (MIDI). This MIDI can be used to drive external synths or, for truly portable generative music, can be played through an integral and powerful modular synth and live FX system.

Key Noatikl parameters:
• Voice types: Ambient, Rhythmic, Repeat, Follows, Fixed Pattern - used to generate MIDI notes
• Rules: Scale, Harmony, Rhythm, Next Note, Listening – used to constrain and filter the notes composed
• Chords: Many parameters for controlling chording and arpeggiation
• Controllers & Micro controllers: Many parameters for controlling MIDI
• Note to MIDI CC Mapping: Used to emit MIDI controller data instead of MIDI events, useful for controlling synths and other parameters
• Many more ... see the Noatikl User Guide for detailed information on all parameters

Why Generative Music?
Generative music is "endless music created by a system". People want to explore it for a whole host of reasons - from wanting to break creative block to an urge to try something different; from pure musical curiosity to wanting to create endless music with a system; from reading about it to - well, you will have your own reasons! Just as in learning any instrument, to fashion the best music requires patience, experimentation and the honing of skills.
