This is my third EIP Studios Ohio Caustic sound pack, and it's amazing! All of the packs that I've bought so far, are of the highest quality, and they have a large dozens of sounds. Plus, they all seem to have a beautiful decent amount of sounds considering the price, something that is true necessary to me, I don't wish to spend and obtain stuck with like 3 sounds. As for this particular pack, well, I'm no Dubstep aficionado by far, but the small I've heard of that genre, this fits in very nicely, and sounds like something you could use to create a assassin Dubstep beat. And the bass presets in this package are just awesome! Some of them are so massive and raw, I love it. And, I've spoken to this developer through email, and he is a really nice and friendly guy, and responds quickly. I seriously doubt that this will be the latest EIP Ohio Caustic 2 package that I buy. Thanks and God bless!
I love this app. I was looking for something to take my production with me, so i got caustic. I was actually able to jump right into it because i have experience with fl studio 12 on the computer, and it uses very simular concepts and controls. Im even able to use my smartphone keyboard as a midi controller! awesome!
Im happier with caustic rather than with fl but the expansion packs need to explain what is added and where. What did i install and where on earth is its folder? I can't remember all the preset folders to search the fresh ones. Quite frustrating. Still, obtain caustic Now and put fl studio mobile aside.
After successfully installing Caustic 3 Sample Package 1 & 2 content packs, and seeing the files install, I sort of expected a paid-for content package to work the same. But I cant search the extracted files anywhere! I figure since they were designed for Caustic 2 (as labeled on the extraction app) they're not as forward compatible as the application maker has suggested. Someone who had a related experience found the solution was to the APK and extract its contents manually. Really?! Oneplus X | Caustic 3.1.2
Polyphony (especially in the envelope), a filter and full modulation would create this a amazing synth, if these were implemented I'd happily to remove ads too. Ps making the playable gain be applied prefx for driving the distortion depending on playing dynamics would be cool
Getting some artifacts when connected to a Bluetooth speaker, especially when droning. Super cool. Already love experimenting with various noises. I was going to another pocket operator but now I don't have to. Future features (dunno how simple it would be) maybe midi control? Attractive work dude! I came from the lofi Fb page
Been using a beta of this application for the latest couple of years so really happy that it's out there now - whether you use Caustic, G-Stomper, RD-4, Sunvox or any other application to create music...Caustic Mastering allows you to sprinkle some fairy dust on your final mix.
If you use Caustic this is indispensable. I always used to want 'if only i could save the effects' as well as the machine preset to use in another song. The effects are an integral part of sound and could never recreate perfectly. This does this and a heavy amount more; seems beautiful much any combination of anything can be templated out for reuse. So my want came real with bells on. Awesome.
Just what I always wanted. It took me a bit to figure out how to create it work. As I use it more (and I will be using it ...a lot) I will obtain used to the work flow. Now I can save my favorite racks for use in other songs rather than writing down ALL of the settings like I used too. GREAT APP. The ability to preview the sound is a true nice touch. Descriptions are helpful too. Once again, amazing app. Worth every penny. Thanks for developing it.
I have all of Gary Numan's releases or re-releases on CD. There have been numerous re-releases of Dance since the vinyl original. One thing that stood out about Gary Numan's vinyl recordings: he was always method more generous than other artists, filling each side with over 25 mins of music. His re-releases have generally been in keeping with that policy. Another feature of Numan works is the technical precision of the engineering. His records have always featured amazing sound. The dynamic contrasts on Dance are considerable, with lots of extremely quiet passages that are vulnerable to popping and clicking on a scratched vinyl record, so CD was essential, but an original re-release had omitted "Cry the Clock Said," much to my dismay. Fortunately, later releases contain that song along with tracks. Yet another release included for the first time a short track with the same title, but that left no zone on the CD for the latest song, and it was dumped. That song is 'Love Needs No Disguise,' and it is an absolute classic. So, from the two extended re-releases of Dance, I used my iTunes to compile a playlist that contains the 11 original tracks and a total of six tracks. I'll refer to those e powerful opener, "Slowcar to China" clocks in as one of the longest Numan pieces. It is atmospheric and jazzy, one of his best pieces. "Night Talk" has unbelievable rhythms, amazing bass, and soaring synthesizer. The lyrics are provocative: "Boys like me aren't supposed to cry, but it's so simple to do." Another gem of musical perfection. "A Subway Called 'You'," as the reader may surmise from other customer reviews, is well-liked, and rightly so. It continues in the same vein as the first two: atmospheric, complex rhythms, melody that floats in space, beautifully engineered recording. "Cry the Clock Said" is quite simply Numan's most introspective song ever, not to mention beautiful. After a leisurely introduction that features reverberant electric piano, Numan sings cryptic, despondent lyrics, fragmentary, and sufficient to evoke a sense of disappointment and longing."She's Got Claws" features some of Numan's vicious, somewhat misogynistic humour, accompanied by sly sax and quirky rhythms that go right back to "Cars." "Crash" is even more evocative of "Cars," but Numan's tenor was never so unleashed as here. "Boys Like Me" revisits a theme introduced in "Night Talk," and ends with a woman's ad-lib in spoken Italian. The content is mainly incomprehensible, but obviously sexual, and at the end she asks, innocently, "Is that okay" "Stories" sounds like a carnival song in slow motion. Numan sings of a woman who sits alone and asks, "Isn't it odd? You remind me of songs that I'd rather forget." "My Brother's Time" is much slower and moody, with spare accompaniment by piano, fretless bass and sax. It is a contrast to the manic "You Are, You Are." The original album ends with "Moral", a slow march, very much in keeping with the subdued tone overall of this perfect work. All but one of the tracks are superb. The original complete re-release of Dance on CD included only four. "Stormtrooper in Drag" is great, with a catchy beat. "Take that smile off your face," Numan sings out. I quite agree with other reviewers that "I Sing Rain" is a true loser, an irritating improvisation that is mercifully short, but so what? I always allow it play, and the next song, "Exhibition" more than makes up for it, another gem that has more the sound of Telekon than Dance. "Love Needs No Disguise" is another perfect track, a rhythmic and melodic song that fits in well with the feel of Dance.On the recent re-release, two tracks, "Dance" and "Face to Face" were added, and "Love Needs No Disguise" was dropped. It certainly was the wrong move. "Love Needs No Disguise" was a single that Numan recorded with Dramatis, a synthpop group that used to be Gary's backup band. Its sound is indistinguishable from Numan's work as a result. Well, the B-side of the single was the perfect Face to Face, but had that been included instead of "I Sing Rain," the 74 min limit of the CD would have been exceeded.Whatever! With the short exception noted, Dance and the perfect tracks are a high point in a career that is filled with them.
A small pre-info: This album came after Gary Numan's exuberant so-called 'farewell' concerts at London Wembley Arena from 1981. Fame got to his head and a scornful ex-girlfriend tried to their story to the tabloids; his best mate Paul Gardiner was suffering a heroin addiction (and later tragically died). These and other things Gary Numan tries to grapple with in this amazing album from 1981. Anyone expecting instant synthpop pieces á "Cars" or albums like The Pleasure Principle is misguided here. The songs obtain darker and more complex; Gary Numan was exploring fresh musical territory. The effect for me is a very conclusive and grown up album, full of emotions and soundscapes. This will not grown on you quickly, as it needs several listenings till it can be fully appreciated. But it's worthwhile I ere's no huge hit-single like "Cars", so there are also no fillers, which is fine, because then you can listen to this album as a whole and every single song has its merit (unlike on other albums of the so-called 'New Romantic' period where there're only one or two hit-songs and the rest just a careless mess).So the songs on Dance obtain longer, darker and more experimental. This is maybe one of Gary Numan's most thoughtful and introverted albums; and one of his most electronic too - while previous albums always featured drums and bass, a few songs on Dance are just comprised of synths and drum machines. That's not to say that electric bass is neglected, on the contrary - no other than the talented (and tragically deceased) Mick Karn with his special playing of fretless bass is featured on several songs (e.g. the over 9-minute opus "Slowcar to China"). On two songs Gary Numan's playing the bass by himself, which shows that he's surely a gifted musician. Violins are well incorporated on some tracks, played by a bizarre artist named Nash the Slash. Furthermore drums by Roger Taylor (of Queen), and of course the saxophone (which is integrated neatly and not over-used like on later albums by Gary Numan) are show on e booklet is very well written by Steve Malins and gives detailed info on the background of Dance. The remastering is well executed (in my opinion) and gives this release an additional edge.Overall, this appears to be a very coherent and complex album by Gary Numan, and, considering his young age of just 23 on it (Numan's born 1958), also very mature and well-conceived. As I said there are no 'high' points as such (and also no 'low' points). Nearly every song on it is important, recorded and conceived with full commitment and care. Everyone who likes Gary Numan and takes their time (and not expecting such transitory 3-minute-hit-songs á "Cars") should experience a fulfilling and rewarding listening after a while. The tracks are an extra treat (with the exception maybe of the quirky and somewhat irritating "I Sing Rain", which could have been omitted).Highly recommended
One of my mates is a large Gary Numan fan, but when he posted on social media his disappointment in hearing this album, I decided that I would obtain it to test and understand why. This album is likely Numan's most experimental effort; it's esoteric, dark, ambient, avant garde, and I like it.
I am a Numan fan (both old school Numan and his fresh millenium stuff)and this was the 7th Numan album I purchased. Mostly I purchased it on the strength of the Amazon reviews. While I wouldn't say I regret buying this album, I do have to admit that it brings me much less pleasure than Telekon, Pleasure Principle, Replicas, Pure, or e Good:Vox was amazing on this album. It would be really interesting to hear Numan record fresh melody and then lay the vocal tracks from this album on top of the fresh stuffthe bad:there really is a LOT of fretless bass on this album. It is like a fretless bass wet dream (if I can say that on an Amazon review)there isn't too much Numan on the album either. He uses beautiful sparse arrangements on this album. As a fan of old-school techno, I often believe that less is more. however, in this case, it just means that the fretless bass can't hide behind anything and it just gets in your can argue that the album is more substantial because, unlike earlier Numan forays, this album isn't aimed at pop success. However, simply trying to not be pop does not necessarily effect in amazing music.3/5
A very potent application riddled with what I'd call "stuck note" bug - Quick tapping 3 or more fingers one after the other causes one of them notes to ring indefinitely. The application has to be restarted or screen-off/ on to fix this. Also, someone when the application is brought back from background, it gets stuck with a blank screen. I really like this application and will modernize the review when fixed.
