The Caustic Family have been spreading Caustic love for some time now.
The contributors are mostly Dance Music oriented which is not really something that excites me but will say that most of what gets onto their YouTube channel is of excellent, well produced goodness.
So if using Caustic their channel is something to visit, plus a lot of the songs and tutorials come with downloadable files.
There is also a Blogspot website to visit for more information:
So this is a Remix contest (the file to remix is on the YouTube site) and this is what is said:
To participate in the contest:
• Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org under the subject "Remix Contest" to let us know.
• You have the whole month of August to finish the remix. Final submission date is 31st August.
• Once you finish your remix, send an mp3 file of your remix and the caustic project file by replying to your previously sent email.
• Also send your artist name, remix genre and add your social media (YouTube, Soundcloud etc.) links if you have any.
• You can always send newer improved versions of the remix.
• You can remix using multiple caustic files. You can also use other apps and softwares for a few samples or final touches/mastering.
Top remixes will be featured on TCF! All the best & stay tuned!
This is made by a developer that have made some other apps that is based on using the Caustic engine. He is also the web director of the Cautic website, singlecellsoftware.com.
This app seems to me to be the most advanced one yet and if not paying attention it may seem simplistic but seeing the videos it shows to have a lot of possibilities that are not obvious and still being an easy app to use. (Having not used it though, it is still not clear to me how the synthesizer parts work).
Can imagine that this would be a very good app for some people.
Also as it is based on the Caustic engine it will be very stable and probably work very good on lower spec devices. Always surprised how good Caustic works on my five year old devices that was not that good to begin with!
Drum Pad Beats is a fun beat/composer - scene/remixer to capture those ideas when that flash of inspiration hits while away from the studio.
Drum Pad Beats is aimed at users that want to create rhythms and melodies using pads and step sequencers. With the added ability to export their creations to wav, ogg or midi loops (zip, pcmsynth for Caustic), user ideas can be taken farther in mobile or desktop Digital Audio Workstations.
Great for sharing beats/tracks as dpb files and remixing another artist's track, the track could then be remixed again adding even more flavor. Drum Pad Beat's project file contains everything another user needs to take that idea even farther.

.Do not know what the S stands for but I want it to be Señor...
So Señor Fleks have already released a new music video. There is flashing of weed and money of course but there is also flashing of his weapon of choice when it comes to music making!
Good looking Señor!
One of the more prolific Caustic users doing a lot of tutorials is S. Fleks.
The tutorials are okay and well worth a look for anyone wanting to learn. Also the only music tutorials that I‘ve seen presented with a joint in hand which makes me smile each time.
Maybe because seeing “professional” Youtube videos far too much it is nice to see something more to the left hand of things!
In either case the music he makes have high caliber written over it and now he gone done a music video to one of his pieces.
Like that Caustic have taken on a life of its own and this is the first music video that is on this level made that is based on an app for Android. (That I am aware of…).
Have to write it again as he is kind of M.I.A, that I really hope that the developer of Caustic is aware that there is a lot of new young users that have taken his creation to their hearts and are digging deep into it. Hope that he sees that there is a lot of love for what he has done and that he has set a lot of people’s creativity in motion that in many cases will influence them for life! As an artist there is not much else too hope for.
Fame and fortune is passing, the only worthwhile endeavor is to make sure that something got made that impressed and influenced people to take your inspiration onto higher levels and many may think an app made for mobile phones is not, but in this case it is influencing people and it is making waves that will reverberate for a long time to come.
The Caustic Famiy Youtube channel have really put in their work over the last year and anyone working with Caustic should go subscribe now!
Hope that Rej the developer have noticed how many people are using his app to make real high quality music with his creation.
God damn how soo many people have proved that you do not need expensive programs etc to make something as good with next for nothing (or int he case of Caustic on PC for nothing) money wise.
There has been a Caustic Family Youtube channe with music and tutorials etc for a longer time now and am happy that there is momentum behind it to bring new Caustic material to the front consistently.
Here is a presentation of some music that is deemed to be in the top ten as of January 2018.
If making music with Caustic and want to share it with more people and specifically other Causticians or want to learn some trick and such do not hesitate and go now to their Youtube channel!
He is using images of Pepe the frog in the video which is a little bit disconcerting,
but think that he is unaware of the significance (hopefully) being from Indonesia...
Otherwise it is a good runthrough of the differences between the two apps.
Fizy Daequan is what could be called the second generation of Causticians pushing the Caustic envelope further. Have been amazed of what some have been doing production wise and technically using just Caustic.
And here is one more example!
Recommend to pay a visit to his ToneDen page as not only can the songs be downloaded but there is also earlier tracks.
