PC version programming and upgrade

Hello I'm skyzzy, I will like to make a proposal or a good request about caustic for window.
I give kudos to the singlecell team for creating this great and lovely program but I think making the computer version more admirable with good graphics and more navigable icon or knobs like other music production software out there will be a real and heavy boost to the software popularity around the world.

Like having the machine tray on the right side of the screen with at least 25 machine slot

The machines should be placed in the center normally the way it is.

The effect, mixer, master and the sequencer rack should be on the right hand side of the screen and they should be expandable for better editing.
It will be great if it can be supported and edited with limited bugs.

I pray caustic and singlecell team enjoy the goodies of producing such a very life changing software.

I love and will always love cauatic, it gives me a new found believe about my musical career. And I will always look forward to any update of this wonderful software for pc.
I'm craving for the upgrade for pc.
PPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The "PC version" is simply

The "PC version" is simply the dev build of the app. There's no support or development of it per se as a separate entity of the app.

Yeah, I think the PC version

Yeah, I think the PC version is just a more user friendly way to play with things you have started on your phone. Or a way to start things off for taking to your phone. If there are more modules on the PC, that would mean you couldn't take your files back to your phone or tablet.

Oh, man, I feel what you're

Oh, man, I feel what you're saying. Always wanted for Caustic to become less limited. I was advocating for this several years ago, but some people here were actively against that, saying that having limited capability is the best thing in the world (that was strange because the same people were asking for more features that *they* wanted in neighboring threads). All in all, although I got some support, the idea of expanding and improving the UI never worked. The saddest part of this was that I talked to the developer and he said that there was no technical problem with making a much more versatile and flexible UI both on mobile devices and PCs. And that was about having more device slots, more effect slots for a device, some better sequencer and so on... it's just he was considering his time, and some of the community members were soooo against it... Now what we have in the end, is a wonderful sound engine with capabilities limited by a very rudimental UI. And its closed-source/no-user-API nature puts an firm end to all this. The developer is currently occupied with other life activities and the development is no longer being active. So one may expect no close or immediate improvements of this such a promising app that it used to be.

Nah! I love that I can edit

Nah! I love that I can edit Caustic files on the PC and continue on them with my Android devices. That's the whole point of Caustic, making music on the fly.. the PC version is just a bonus.

If you think Caustic is

If you think Caustic is limited, you ought to check out Korg's DS-10; DSN-12 software (which is $40 for -- limited functionality). I mean, comparitively - I'd take a licence for Caustic at $10 over Korg's software because Caustic can do more. If anything this software could easily sell a license key for $40, I'd gladly pay for that. Nobody asks Korg for an update, check out YouTube videos on how well people make the most use out of limited functionality of a glorified software synth (sequencer) to get my point.

PC software is also usually more expensive, and you almost always have to buy a separate license. I bought a Caustic license but use the PC version because the phone is insufficient (doing anything on a 4.5" screen isn't happening) -- though personally I wish dev would offer a PC license because I don't use the mobile version at all... What other developer out there offers a PC version of their DAW software for free? I don't think there's any that aren't riddled with ads on the side or have a 'catch'.

ETA: I can see why the Caustic team doesn't do feature requests (why is this in "tips and tricks" even). I sincerely wish there were more offers to code/debug software rather than feature requests in the wrong subforum every other week... I only see one or two other active devs (or "feature modders"?) here so these requests must get to be too much after a while.

Honesty taking

Honesty taking straightforward I would do the same thing I would want to buy the caustic Windows version if there ever will be in the future because i do see that there is potential...

Personally if I were to try

Personally if I were to try and take caustic to the pc I'd do it in two ways.

1: turn all the machines into VSTs allowing them to be used in other DAWs thus creating revenue.

2: make caustic a pattern based sequencer (as it already is) controlling VST instruments.

I don't know how likely this is though, from what I understand Rej was pretty keen on keeping it mobile only... That said, he's been MIA for goodness knows how long now so if he ever does return it'll be interesting to see what his plan is.

Personally I would really like to see him return as the stagnant progress of caustic isn't great for the user base, people like to see software updating even if it's just minor incremental changes.
