Did not realize that there has been a pro version out now for some months until today!
Well the pro version adds exporting of Wav files and nothing else but if there is no possibilities to record to something external it is a great addition.
Plus that this has to be supported in my opinion!
Okay so have written about the free version before but that was a long time ago...
What the app does is it allows the creation of sound through mathematical formulas and it is also a way to compose longer sequences.
This way of sound creation has not been around for long but there is formulas and people composing using this method and it goes under the name bytebeat.
So to learn more about it just search bytebeat and if it still to hard to understand how it works at least there is a lot of formulas available.
There is a bytebeat machine in Caustic 3 to.
There is some differences in the synthesizers in question of function and in Caustic you have the advantage of sequencer / FX etc of course but as a byte beat generator this preferable as it is more direct and have sliders laid out to directly influence the sound and a big plus there is a big window to see the wave form. Yeah it should not make a difference but personally it makes it easier for me when I see the shape of sound as well as hear it.
Maybe my only complaint is that it would have been good to have a BPM setting as it only have a slider for tempo and if you have no software to snap you loops to specific BPM it is of course harder to synch things up...
In either case this app is a must free or the Pro version if there is any interest in noise/chiptune/experimental/FX music making.
I will post the Caustic tutorial as it is the clearest explanation that I have seen and gives a starting point for further explorations.
