How do I import a song so I can create patterns to it.

I receive songs from Friends. Most of the time it's just a guitar and them singing. What I do is I add drums, Bass, or whatever is appropriate for a song. Now that you understand what I am trying to do. How do I add a wave file to a track? So I can create patterns and add them to the song.

Load them in vocoder o/ press

Load them in vocoder o/ press the 3 dots and go where you file is, select... Now go to piano roll, look for c1 put a note here... This will depend the lenght of your file (: put other note on c4 or up and press play... Now you can put some bass or drums (:

If you dont understand i can make a .caustic project to explain better... You can load .wav files in BeatBox, PcmSynth and Vocoder.

I have a feeling I'm missing

I have a feeling I'm missing something. I can only get it to play for 8 Seconds. It's using the waveform like an 8-second sample. Or maybe that's eight measures.

Hmm :/ so i think you have to

Hmm :/ so i think you have to go to the vocoder sequencer, there you can play your file fully/ complete (: do as i did here o/ i exported a file of mine and did it (: may work to you now o/ the problem is you'll have to work with your edits in "song" mode :/ aka from sequencer...

I see how you doing it now.

I see how you doing it now. Thank you! When I looked over the caustics file I could see what I was doing. The only problem is my phone isn't powerful enough. I get to 54 measures, and it stops playing. I stretched it over a hundred and twenty eight measures. Maybe it's time for a new phone. Or maybe a tablet. Tablets are a lot cheaper right now. Anybody have any suggestions?

There's a limit to the length

There's a limit to the length of any one sample you can import. Caustic wasn't really designed for what you're trying to do.

I'd recommend using the PCM Synth and the Wave Editor above the Vocoder but what you're doing isn't something I've routinely tried to do.
