this could be such a great app, but unfortunately the developers change their prices (for the inscription version) way too often. this alternative here- if you want to have an up-to-date version- to buy the „1 year app„ for 20 dollars every year is just a rip off.

Hmm, that is a strong sentiment :(, especially as some users have an opposite view saying things like "the price is way cheap, for the use I'm getting out of it". You are of course entitled to your opinion but there are options to use Wotja to suit any budget, starting with FREE. if you want the facts about what is involved, what has/has not changed and what the options are then have a look at this FAQ: https://intermorphic.com/help/#faq-wotja-pricing.

Wotja certainly isn't an instrument designed for the masses. But for those of us who like programming generative music, there is nothing that compares and to price is very reasonable for all they say it does and what you can push it do!

It's not a rip off... it's just not something for you. It would be a rip off if they told you it did one thing and didn't deliver. Everything they say is in there... is in there!
