Great thread, enjoyed reading

Great thread, enjoyed reading it - I can't really argue with the comment further down that some people here can be a little spikey / overprotective.

It's definitely not an Android v iOS thing - I think more, people are protective of Rej out of enlightened self interest - Caustic is his baby and he's the sole Dev, and if he gets overwhelmed / disillusioned / disenchanted / exhausted then that's it - no more Caustic updates...but also I think it's because people simply like Rej and try to look out for him.

I tried to keep my mouth shut

I tried to keep my mouth shut for a while but finally turned the feature request forum off because Rej just stopped reading it. It turned into an I want, I want, I want, no detail in implementation, no detail in use case, just, this is good for me.

Also, the amount of duplicates just because people couldn't scan subjects for relevant topics.

Also, the subject lines got more and more useless.

And finally, in the end, it turned into what you said, only the 3/4 of the defense was exactly what James said. We are not talking about Korg, or Image Line here, this was something that caught on, developed by one person and thus fragile as such.

There was a lot of bashing of Caustic by iOS users but I knew through my own experience that it has a lot to offer. So I tried to let people know there was more to it. 

To Mikes point about feature requests - for sure that's a battle that can't be won and I can't believe how rude and self-centered people get about it.

iOS Caustic is so much more

iOS Caustic is so much more clear, due to the latency being perfect. It's just difficult to access files for export. I've used both for years, now.

@AndyZamoron

How are you finding it difficult to export? Audioshare is one of the export options which makes it pretty easy. Or ACP if you want to bother with that. The new version also exports stems. Is that where you're finding the issue? Yes that's a pain unfortunately although if you have the Documents app and connect to Caustic FTP server you can access the folder directly.

I do like using caustic on my iPad with audiobus but honestly my g5 with 7.0 nougat has just as low latency even on the highest latency setting as on iOS

Maybe reverting back to Android in the future might actually be an alternative then =D I was surprised to see Korg iKaossilator on Android a while back, I like where this is going.. =)

Thanks Anikt for this link.

Thanks Anikt for this link.

I have Caustic on all my machines, and Gadget on iPad. I also tried lots of sequencer and synths on iOs. 

Some gadget's sounds are really cool but I never finished a song with Korg's baby. 

Caustic still remains my to-go app for building ideas, tweaking sounds, teaching. For my live preset I use both Caustic and Gadget, and sometimes another specific synth (Nave, Sunrizer), all driven by Genome as sequencer. I had to buy again an iPad Air2, the iPad3 went out of juice to run 3 or 4 apps together.

Happy to see that most of the iOs users are hooked to Caustic as soon as they spend a little time to explore it.

I also noticed that most of the users enjoyed Rej's video tutorials. It's also a good point for Caustic vs others.
