Hi Jim!

If you mean: can you download a mix that you play through the browser plug-in - the answer is "Yes". Just select the menu item to Save it. Alternatively, you could edit the mix and re-export it to tweet-on for others to listen to.

if that doesn't answer your question, please just ask again!

Best wishes,

Pete

and maybe we are not on the same page with terminology ... by download, i mean download an audio file. if "mix" means a resident mixtikl file, that is obviously something else altogether ...

Ah, it sounds like what you're looking for might be SoundCloud?

Try this link...?

http://soundcloud.com/groups/mixtikl

hmm
no, maybe i can clarify

is it possible using the mixtikl browser app,
to somehow first listen/record a random iteration of a piece online
and then download it
as an mp3 or other type of audio file?

Hi Jim,

With the browser app you can listen to the generative piece for as long as you like but, AFAIK, you can't make a useful recording of the piece from within the app (2 bars only if memory serves).

However, you can export the mix from the web app to the clipboard and import it to Mixtikl desktop for unrestricted recording there.

Or I guess you can use AudioHijack, SoundFlower or similar to grab the audio stream from the browser window directly.

my long-term thought as been
to have a means to audition a generative piece online
and then have a means to capture an iteration that i like

is that out of the realm of possibility on your mind??

Heh!

Got to say AudioHijack is the most useful piece of software I have on my system bar none. Indispensable.

It's been a while since I moved to Mac but the nearest thing I had back then was Total recorder

http://www.totalrecorder.com/

Due to the very different ways audio is handled in Windows v OSX it took a bit more effort to get it working. When I used it, it created a virtual audio device that you used instead of your usual audio interface so wasn't exactly transparent and it did strange things to my audio drivers but that was a while back and things may be better now. Try before you buy.


An alternative (that I've no direct experience of) is Ntonyx VAC

http://www.ntonyx.com/vac.htm


I don't know of any free alternatives but then I'm not really up to speed with Windows software now, having gone over to play in the Job's Walled Garden several years ago.

The writing was on the wall for me when Apple bought up Emagic. Logic fanboi -> Apple convert. :lol:

hey thanks!
my vision has been to offer a visitor to a site
a kernel from which to choose
then
let them audition iterations of that kernel (eg a noatikl piece)
and then pick one and download it

it's probably not there yet actually
and maybe it actually has no real purpose ...

just a notion ...

thanks!

Hi earthmuse

Couple of things to add here, but prob already covered.

If you post the mixtikl (url) on your website then people who have Desktop Mixtikl demo installed can play the mix in the desktop browser. IIRC there is no timeout on playback on the mix, and they can make an audio recording of that - but only for the first 30 days of the eval (i.e. from installation). If they purchase a licence for the desktop version of Mixtikl (which also covers the plugin), and apply the licence key, then the plugin does allow mix audio recording of length they can choose.

There is no way to "replay" an exact mix that uses generative content as by its very nature it is created live. However, the person could listen to 30 mins of a mix and you could also provide a 30 minute recording of that mix you have made available for download.

Hope that helps a bit!
