A quick look at Caustic 3.0 Alpha

So, we start off with a nice entry and an invitation to add machines into our track. 

And aren’t there some lovely machines to add in. Most notably the new modular and the vocoder machines, but for me the modular is the most interesting of all.

And how cool is it. When you open up the modular machine you get a tabbed view of elements to add into your modular, starting with the osc. panel.

Followed by some envelope choices.

Some very nice filter options including a formant filter.

Some cool mixing modules to go into the machine.

A couple of effects, and I have to say that this is probably the most disappointing, and I hope we’ll see some more options here in due course.

Finally, a ‘misc’ tab of elements to put into the machine.

Adding modules/elements into the modular machine gives you two views. A front and a flip view. The front panel view is above …

And below is the flip view gives you the patch cable view.

Patching the elements is very easy and straightforward, and I’m happy to say, a real joy to play around with. Caustic will be in alpha for a while and there are no promises on stability at all, but even so, I think it’s worth the risks.

I think it’ll be a big step forward for Android music making.

Impressed? I am.
