Force Closes

Hey Mike, any other feedback from ppl having difficulty getting these new ones installed? I've DL'ed Dubtech and TechHouse. DT kept force closing when I clicked open from the play store, but later on that day, it worked when i opened from my app drawer. TH, however still has yet to open since installing early yest. just keeps force closing...I'm on an S6. have not tried on my Tab, but I'll keep you posted when I give it a try on there.

LOVE DubTech, btw. wish there were 8 MORE kits to choose from, but I think I'll survive!

Keep up the the good work!

Hey, thanks for the feedback.

Hey, thanks for the feedback. I compiled these with the very latest Android SDK.

Can you tell me what OS version you have?

No, I tested these on all my devices and they installed. It's the same exact code I have used for all my packs. The only thing that changed is I am compiling with Android 25 build.

If you can't get it installed, I can send you via email.

Thanks for following up.  I

Thanks for following up.  I tried TechHouse once more before I got on here to reply to you, and this time it opened and installed with no problems!  Go figure...

Anyways, I was on my Galaxy S6 with Android 7.0 for the two packs that kept force closing initially.  This is the same device I used to DL any of your old packs as well (though probably an older OS version), and I know I never had any issue.  So just to test things out, I grabbed the two new Synthpads on my Samsung Tab (4.4.2) and they both opened and installed immediately.  So who knows...

But again, all is good now and I'm diggin the new presets.  Keep em coming!  

Thanks!

Pretty much all I do is copy

Pretty much all I do is copy files from the apk binary to your caustic directory.

I am using the file system in the old permission way, where this changed in 6.0, with popup permissions. Other than some random OS error which I really doubt, I am pretty sure it had to do with your file system, a directory was not found, something strange.

Usually with an Android app, if you can't reproduce the error it's something to do with your device, not my code.

Thanks for updating though, appreciated.

Thanks, yeah these are all my

Thanks, yeah these are all my own sound design and put together in the beatbox like I would use them, but you can create whatever you want.

I have Synth3, Minimal1, Minimal2 and DrumSynth1 coming next.

I'm releasing packs all summer, a vacation from app development.

Thanks man. Really, this is

Thanks man. Really, this is years of practice and audio stuff, it's proper eq, compression and my own special sauce, most these sounds are welded by me exclusively, others are molded.

Each kit I EQ together, not that they don't sound good with others but I cut massive frequencies on a lot of them when creating. I think there is a lot of space with the samples together for synths and the rest of your track.

BTW, I haven't announced it yet but I just released 5 more, Minimal1, Minimal2, DrumSynth1, HipHop1, Synth3.

The DrumSynth1 is entirely created with literally a drum synth. :) I will be getting the videos for them up by tomorrow but they are on Google Play right now.
