Expansion packs for Caustic used on iPad

I've bought and used several packs when I was running caustic on my android, but now I've got this nice big screen to play with and I want to grow my sample library with the hard work of the sampling gurus who gave me things like a selection of fine pianos and violins --- but everything so far seems to only want to install to my old android phone. Am I SOL for solutions on an iPad?

I guess if worst comes to worst I can just export the PCMSynth presets to the iPad, but I want to see if there's a way to do it legit before I go that more laborious route.

Can't you just copy the .caustickpack files from your Android device to Dropbox or similar and Open In on your iPad?

Yeah, no dice. Apple's iOS is surprisingly impenetrable when it comes to raw file handling. :-(

Not really. What type of file is it and where is it stored?

That is what I am completely unable to find out. I took some .PCMSynth files and google drive'd them (the .causticpack file was nowhere I could locate it on my android device). Now I can see those files on google drive and I can see the caustic file locations when I'm in caustic, but the two locations have no connectivity. On my android phone I'd just use ES file explorer and paste the file in the caustic folder...but no such facility exists on an iPad.

You can do this stuff on an iPad. It's just not the same. Different OS.

Find the file in GD. Tap on

Find the file in GD. Tap on the three vertical dots to the right. Select Send A Copy. Select Open In. Select Copy To Caustic. Done. 

I recommend the free app Documents by Readdle. By using the Caustic FTP server you can directly access Caustics folders.

Documents did the trick for establishing file connectivity between Google Drive and Caustic - THANK YOU! :-)

Now to locate the .causticpack file on my android device. Right now I can import the presets, that in itself is helpful enough.
