About this app

Caustic 3 is a music creation tool inspired by rack-mount synthesizers / samplers rigs.
Everything is real-time and optimized for mobile devices.

Create your rack by adding up to 14 machines from a choice of:
* Subsynth - Virtual analog subtractive synthesizer
* PCMSynth - Multi-sample wave synthesizer
* BassLine - 303-like monosynth
* BeatBox - 8-channel sampling drum machine
* PadSynth - Harmonic table pad synthesizer
* 8BitSynth - 8bit equation solver synthesizer
* Modular - Fully configurable and routable synthesizer
* Organ - Hammond-like tonewheel organ with rotary speaker
* Vocoder - 8-band harmonic vocoder
* FMSynth - DX-style 3-operator fm synthesizer
* KSSynth - Karplus-Strong string modeling synth
* SawSynth - Supersaw-type polysynth (new!)

The app also includes:
* Effects rack supporting 2 effects per machine. (20 effect types)
* Mixer desk with global Delay/Reverb effects
* Master section with parametric EQ and limiter
* Song sequencer

Supports automation on most controls and includes powerful editors for modifying recorded automation curves.

All files are stored on the user-accessible storage, and users can supply their own WAV files for use in the PCMSynth, BeatBox, and Vocoder.
Supports all uncompressed WAV files (8-16-24-32bit, any sampling rate).
The PCMSynth can also load SoundFont files (.sf2), SFZ and FL Studio mobile instruments (.instr, .ZIP)


Class-compliant USB MIDI controllers can be connected via USB OTG cable on devices running at least Android 3.2 and supporting USB host mode.


See the in-app help section for tutorial videos and full online manual.

One issue. On newer versions of Android, the pcmsynth is missing the button to go up a level in your folders. Therefore selecting a sample is incredibly painstaking now. The only other thing I wish for is multi-touch to zoom in and out of the midi sequencer. now is a hassle to make longer loops, and basically impossible to compose with midi in song mode. will this ever get updated again? j hope it does. It's nearly the perfect mobile daw.

Great music composition app. There's a lot of function comparable to go studio and the like. Can be overwhelming if you're new, but if you're familiar with other software, this will be pretty easy to interface. It's pretty intuitive, though there are a few hardware conflicts on lower end devices and there is no developer support. There's a mass of sound packs free and for purchase, as well as vocal/midi input support.For a free, I can't has no cheeseburger better! Thank you developers!

this app is absolutely amazing! its easily the best daw for mobile devices, and very easy to use. i just want one thing tho, which is an easier way to sample songs. i don't like how i have to chop up the sample into 8 measure parts, i believe it makes things harder than they need to be. if you could make it so you can just put a whole song into caustic without chopping it up, that would be so great!
