How to post Soundcloud track and .caustic file

Hi,

The forum has been updated. Now if you want to post a track and .caustic file it's as easy as filling in two fields.

1. Go to your track page on soundcloud and find the Full url to your track;

 

2. Next paste the URL into the Soundcloud Track field;

 

3. Click the Browse button to locate your local .caustic file and hit Upload.

4. Write your forum post Body data as usual and Submit!

5. See the result.

 

Hopefully this will make your community sharing 100% more fun!

Remember, when you submit a caustic file, you are agreeing to the public domain sharing of your content.

Nice one Mike, I just edited

Nice one Mike, I just edited the field header for the source .caustic file to indicate it's optional. I don't want people to hold off on sharing their final audio mix (soundcloud) because they're not comfortable giving away their source work.

Ok, yeah I was I guess being overly direct.

Haha, the actual php code to get the filter formater to run on a field was the hard part. :)

As of 07-27-2013 The FULL soundcloud URL is required. I fixed a problem I was having and that is why the first iteration had the fragment path.

I have learned to talk to the boss before I hack things. wink Now its just an easy copy and paste.

No problem Rej, it's always a pleasure to help.

Not to mention I love learning and fixing things, this was the case here.

Note; You never bug me with requests, you just push me to fix something I should have spent two more hours on and fixed. cheeky

I would say if all your presets are free for use, there is no problem posting the .caustic file, there would be a problem if you tried selling those free presets.

I just tried uploading a .caustic file from my phone and there is no file browser listed in the pop up menu. Dropbox is listed and that errors out when trying to add a file. Is this just an issue on mobile?

I think this is the classic content type issue again. So you pressed the Browse button and all the popped up to use was soundcloud and not a file manger app?

I don't know, there are so many possibilities on Android, who knows what the problem could be. Sorry.. :)

I know in the actual site code its

<input type="file">

for the Browse button, it must be your browser messing up, try a different browser just to see if that makes any difference.

Any EIPStudiosOhio content

Any EIPStudiosOhio content presets from Paid or Free packs are OK to share only with your Caustic Song File, on this Forum,so generally  no problems here...

Same here.... when I upload a Caustic Song File, I have to do it from PC.... unless there is a mobile app that integrates uploading any type of file, not just mobile-standard media files...

SELECTING FILES

If you install the cool app "ES File Explorer" when you will see it appear in the same window as your other apps . Select it and you can then navigate to any file using ES :)

Tachila Prog Rock Intro Track with .caustic File

Hello. Thanks. Tremendously simple affair. Just introducing my 1st projects on Caustic 3. This is my brain on it. I started this as an experiment in sound creation. I was go for a wha guitar then the track followed. It's just an intro, so mixing and EQ leaves a lot to be desired. Anywhoo hear it is. Cheers.
