Obligatory Community Check-Up

Hello again, everyone!

It's about time for a peek at what the Caustic Community's been up to, so I'd like to ask that question, and I'd also like to throw in a proposition!

First, and most importantly, how are you? What are you working on? How's Life? Learned any new tricks? Designed any new instruments, skins, etc.?

Secondly, my idea:

I wanna put something together that represents the variety of artists that use Caustic and create a kind of mix/mashup of songs. Would anyone be interested in contributing a track or two? I'll edit and cut the whole thing together, so no worries on your part (aside from the songs of course).

In an ideal situation, we could cut together about an hour or two worth of quality music made in Caustic, and that could spark some popularity for the community (this is kind of out of my love for Caustic as well).

Also, I may be able to put these songs on a Various Artists album for large streaming services (provided individual permission from each artist, of course). These services include iTunes / Apple Music, Spotify, Google Play Music, Deezer, Napster, and YouTube Music.

TL;DR:

Hi, how are you doing, and what are you working on? Also, would you want to send me a song or two to be in a huge Caustic Community mix? Also, would you allow me to put the song(s) on a Various Artists album to release through large streaming services? If no, you can still be in the mix, I'll just remove your songs from the album.

@Daniele Zummo - I believe

@Daniele Zummo - I believe this would be a non-profit, free-exposure type deal, confirmably for YouTube. I can also hash things out with Amuse while we wait for more replies to this thread.

You wrote that you would be

You wrote that you would be posted on iTunes, Google play, and others. There is a price in the songs and since I also use amuse, I can say I know these things. As for Youtube, you'll know that if others would put our songs on their videos, there would be a gain. However, if you really intend to do this, I can also accept it. What would you need? Mp3? Wav, or .Caustic file?

Well Rej is in the wheel

Well Rej is in the wheel house for the Mastering release, so I would think things are starting to move forward again.

I have some more apps being released with the core, so 2019 should be interesting.

I'm also thinking about creating a community app that allows sharing presets and tracks easy.

PS I am also in the midst of creating a 3D visualizer for .caustic song files.

@Mike - That's awesome! I

@Mike - That's awesome! I wasn't able to download that new beta of Mastering when it came out, but I hope to experience it soon (it said the build was corrupt or something along those lines). I'm also waiting to get a more powerful device that can smoothly run your apps as well; I'm working on a Samsung Galaxy Tab E if that helps.

@Daniele Zummo - If you'd like album art or a profile image to be featured in your portion of the mix (I'll probably be putting it in the corner of the video during your track), you can send me a .png file that's at least 800x800, and it'd be best if you sent me a .wav file (preferably with the same format as your usual Amuse uploads).

As for Amuse, I believe I can contact Amuse and get that information. I trust what you're saying though, because that is true (I'd never think to get money from other artists' creations).

Also, please make sure to send a link to your YouTube channel, Soundcloud page, or anywhere else you can be heard! I'll be linking to all artists involved in the video description.

As for others putting our songs in their videos, I can't disagree that there is some risk involved, but that's why I'm trying to make this a non-profit project. If you wanted, you could even send in something that's already been released.

If you want to send in a song or two, please email it to endvisible@gmail.com in 16bit .wav format @ 44.1kHz — Also send a link to where you can be found and, optionally, a .png of some album art or an artist picture.

I'm hoping to receive at least an hour's worth of music to make this. If at least ten people take part, I can confirm this will happen ('cause otherwise it'd just be a couple of songs in a video, not a mix).

Update: I'm hoping to receive at least twenty minutes of music. If I don't get enough submissions, I won't have enough to work with.

If you are interested in participating, please comment and let me know! I'll give you time to make any adjustments (or to make a song if you haven't), just please let me know that you're in!

Mike, Have you tried Magic Music Visuals? I'm actually building virtual visual instruments, and I feed it with Caustic audio and midifiles ;) the last version is simply amazing and make building octaves for scales much easy...

@skarabee Yeah I remeber when

@skarabee Yeah I remeber when you showed us your project.

You know me, I want total control and am building everything myself. As well, I am loading the .caustic file and using it's internal data for the visualization, no midi.

Also allso for crazy things like tapping into the track's auytomation and single track FFT and VU values.

BTW, Welcom to Caustic. :)

Proto a month ago with a simple .caustic file. (download the mp4, dropbox compresses nasty)

What would be the usefulness of this audio visualizer? Why would Caustic have it?

Well obviously, as with anything else in this world, it wouldn't be intended for people who aren't interested.

Caustic wont't have it, why do you listen to music with your ears?

I guess is the same question as why would you watch something with your eyes

It's a mobile/desktop app for visualizations, like at youtube, a club or festival. :) Not IN Caustic.

Very nice, with the

Very nice, with the reminiscence of Caustic's hexagram. I saw you use Unity engine for 3 D rendering. I'm curious, how Caustic core can be used with Unity ?

I work with magic, wich is aimed at video Djing, and not so powerfull in 3D rendering (no lights or texture, but this will come soon). But it's fully Midi and OSC implemented, and works like a modular with modules and cables.

@Daniele Zummo: I think  you were confused because Mike said this app will use Cautic's data.

A lot of low level C#/C marshalling. It was painful to get going let me tell you. haha

this is a great idea! 

this is a great idea! 

are you looking for tracks that are made exclusively using Caustic? If so, I might have something worth submitting. But all the tracks i consider my best are a healthy mix of caustic and "live" instruments or vocals
