There is also a free Trap sample pack if going to the Youtube page:
The musician Skarabee and longtime user of Caustic have released some free goodies to go with Caustic 3.2.
Here is what is in the first pack:
2 skins: Nautilus (3.1 revisited for 3.2)
Paisley (a purple skin in memory of Prince)
20 sawsynth presets
8 stereo PCMsynth presets
3 stereo beatbox presets ( brushcat, fatdrums and stereopercz)
To get this go to the Caustic forum here:
He also have a website called aptly enough Caustic Resource. Here he have released more packs that take advantage of the latest Caustic, specially stereo samples in the sampler.
So go here and you can find even more great things like Orchestral instruments, clusters, textures and beatbox presets.
To go and check it these packs that are free as well go here:
So this is the second contest that Stagelight is doing together with Smule's AutoRap application.
I did not understand when mentioning the first contest that it was to make a Rap/Hip Hop song instrumental for the AutoRap app. I thought it was meant that a person was supposed to use the AutoRap app for rapping which is less interesting in my book.
In either case as an instrumental it makes sense for a Rap producer to participate as it will give a decent amount of exposure.

So much new really cool features that even half of it would be fantastic.
There is a couple of things that is really cool that sticks out-
The audio editor have two different types of time-stretch/pitch shifter.
A new Synthesizer that have been used by many Beta testers with great results.
But to me maybe the coolest thing is the possibility to merge all sound generators into a PCM (the capable sampler) preset. Think about that!
That means you can make the most complex synthesizer patches as there is so many different types of sound engines to use inside of Caustic. It even comes with a little mixer before merging it down into a new preset! Plus that it frees up a lot of CPU if the device is suffering.
I would say that Android is blessed by having such a capable app that would be more than enough if it was the only one. Maybe the only thing missing to make it complete would be full on audio tracks but there is workarounds for that as well using the sampler.
Remember that there is a free PC version as well with no limitations!
Lately I have heard some amazing productions using Caustic in styles of Dubstep and Trap music and find it fascinating that there seems to be a new generation of Caustians that are taking Caustic to a new level. Will be posting some of this soon.
So it took some time, but that is all in the past now and the developer have always been generous enough to let the Beta version grace free, so for the interested the wait have not been to burdensome.
Now we are waiting for the mastering app that the developer is working on but it seems pretty ready and have a feeling that the wait will not be as long.
Take a look at these videos that are as other Caustic videos made by the developer some of the best tutorials I have seen. Actually would say that even if not using Caustic they are great at explaining concepts for similar synthesizers and effects etc. using other apps or hardware.
To get the free PC version and to take a look at the forum as well for more information and general goodwill go here:
