Hi, everyone. Thanks for

Hi, everyone. Thanks for sharing!
My name is Britt Johansen.
I'm an 54 year old woman living in Oslo, Norway. 
My musical awakening happened in my early childhood, in the 60's. There was always a lot of music in our family back then. Young aunts and uncles lived with us until they found work, and they had guitars, harmonica, recordplayers and yellow 45's. :)
Beeing a teenager in the 70's made me love progrock. Then I fell in the funk/fusion pot, and I still have a soft spot for this music.

After graduation, I went to what we call Musikk-konservatorium to study church organ. I was a lazy student and didn't read much theory, so I left after 2 years. Volunteerly!

As a youth and young adult I played in numerous bands. Punk, funk, big band, Standard rock, world music.... i played different guitars (I loved the bass), brass horns, drums.

I found Caustic after a long time of desperate search for an editor for my tab. I fell over it on Youtube and ... the rest is history. :)

Well the definition of

Well the definition of Scandinavia is a bit blurry and there are different opinions on which countries are part of it. In geographical terms there's only three countries counted Sweden, Denmark and Norway. But then there are other aspects such as historical and linguistic terms, so technically Island, Finland and Faroe islands are part of Scandinavia too. I always forget about Island and Faroe islands because they are far from the rest of us but I definitely count Finland who's are closest neighbor in the east :)

Gooooood morning, Sweden!

Gooooood morning, Sweden!

I think I have some answers:
Scandinavia = Sweden, Denmark and Norway.
The Nordic countries = Sweden, Finland, Norway Faroe and Iceland.
Denmark is a part of the European mainland, therefor it's not defined as a Nordic country.
(And Norway is NOT the capital of Sweden!) wink

It's nice to meet a Swede here!
To Pan 65 and NISHITBASSIST: I have a long term love and affection for the swedish guitarist Janne Schaffer. What he produced in the 70's with Björn J:son Lindh and the Porcaro family has followed me since then. In my opinion Schaffer is on the same skill level as... Lukather, Satriani, Vai, Frusciante, Nile Rodgers, ....and, and, and!
Swedish music is a huge part of life for us Norwegians. Admiration and envy. Why did the Swedes come up with band after band, and we just got Aha?

This morning I have been listening to Claes Rosen, a lovely track called 'Endeavour' - and it made me feel really good.
Thank you Sweden, for bringing me Claes Rosen at 6 AM. :)
It's nice to see that other people are interested in our countries, that's not very usual, is it? However, it's a sweet massage on frozen Nordic ego's. ;)

My name is Kevin. I am a jack

My name is Kevin. I am a jack of all trades, i enjoy working on computers, am an artist most of my work is monochromatic and using either graphite or charcoal. I love reading and for the past 3 months i have been playing around with differant musical apps and decided i want to seriously pursue djing and production. I do not think i will become famous doing this but i wont complain if i do lol. I would just be happy with one or two shows a month (for local community). I know i am a long way away from that but rome wasn't built in a day. The track i am including is my very first mixand was recorded in sub par conditions :) oh and my day.job is a professional cleaner :)
Edit: none of the music in that track was produced by me, i claim no rights to it, i was only doing some minor mixing.

At the fundemental level everything is frequency, music truly is life :)

Well I might as well comment.

Well I might as well comment. Not saying too much though...I'm 15 and I live in Ohio. My passion for music started when I was 7 and began playing the violin. I've been told by countless adults that I have an 'ear' for music but I haven't really expressed it until I found Caustic. I also love sports and have played basketball and volleyball since I was 8. But now I cannot due to horrible knee injuries. (Torn ACL, sprained it 3 times since, and now an unidentified injury) so I spend my time now in school, and when I'm not, I'm making stuff on Caustic.

I guess im up. . My name is Khalid, im 15 and i live in Fort wayne,IN. I started playing the violin when i was about 11, that's pretty much the only musical background I have. But I'm an avid listener, if i get some quiet time in or outside of school i usually spend it listening to or working on music. I listen to so much of it i thought i might as well get involved in it, But im still getting my act together. I love playing soccer and i also like drawing . .

Hi Kashan, welcome! :)
So, violin! That's beautiful. I have tried that myself, but I didn't figure it out. Ever since, I have been a bit envious of people that can play the violin. :)
I hope you will enjoy it here. And good luck with your music!

Hello!

Hello!

My name is Gunter. I live in the south of Germany, near Stuttgart. I am 58 years old. Between 14 and 17 I learned Clarinet, later I tried Sax, but I didn't finish my studies, so I am no musician. In the year 1990 I discovered a band named "Magazine". We changed the bands name into "Fools Garden" and worked hard to have success. I produced and managed this band until their hit "Lemon Tree" was released. "Lemon Tree" was Nr. 1 in whole Europe and also in a few countries in Asia. In 1996 I gave that job to my brother Steffen, because I am an officer and I didn't want to give up my job at the government. Since 1996 I made the job "Merchandising" and "Fan Support". In 2003 I leaved the band because the friendship got lost (the most bands share this fate).

I have 2 sons, one of them is a musician (guitar and keys). He makes Hip Hop, the name of the band is called "akmii" (you will find it on youtube). My son has a studio in my house with complete stuff to produce professional music.

I love music too and in the past I tried a lot of times to create own songs, but I always gave up. Now I try it once more, because I found Caustic. I hope it will bring me to higher grounds. At the moment I have a latency problem. If I get this solved, I start with my first own song. I hope I find enough help in this forum.

With regards from Germany

Gunter

Btw: Does someone speak Esperanto? 25 years ago I produced an album with 13 songs in Esperanto. Maybe you heard about that.

Hi Gunter,

Hi Gunter,

I remember that Lemon Tree song I really liked it, it reminded a lot of some of Beatles work. I didn't know Fools Garden was from Germany though :)

People who publicly post

People who publicly post things and images to the internet, sometimes do not realize that such content stays there.   I've found posts and pictures I've made on message boards going back into the 90's.

just sayin......   It's why I don't do FB or TW.   I have no problem with public sharing of EIPSO stuff but personal private stuff is kept to a bare minimum if not at all.

Hello,

Hello,
My name is Tiffany and I am a stay at home mom from Virginia. I've been playing keyboards off and on for 26 years. I spent the last few years having children and took a break from playing and creating music. Me and my husband have been together 15 years and have two wonderful children. I'm a self taught musician. Even though I went college to learn more about music I still can't read notes well. I got through by ear. I love all styles of music but am really getting into trailer type music. The first piece of music I figured out how to play was sitting in front of the TV when I was 7 with my little Casio keyboard and watching the 1985/1986 movie Legend original score by Tangerine Dream. I have a bunch of ideas started but never finished them or did anything with them. Now I'm wanting to do that. Caustic is a great way for me to put down ideas as soon as a tune hits my head. I can't always go jump on my keyboards. I love listening to everyone's music here. Lots of great ideas and talent:)

Hello!

Hello!

I'm Caleb Klomparens, and it's a pleasure to enter the Caustic community!

I only first heard about Caustic when trying to find a decent music-making app on Android (trust me, there aren't many for a decent price). After a few days of frustration, lo and behold: Caustic! I prefer it to GarageBand any old day.

I love music, compose it, release it on Soundcloud, and then make some more! In the Summer of 2013, I released an album on multiple music platforms called Kourage (search it on your favorite music site. I betcha it's there). Anyway, at age 17, I like to think I'm doing well, only to find a new technique to master right around the corner!

Happy composing!

hi,

hi,

My name's Steve and I've been around this forum for several months. I do post the odd comment and track, so I felt I should introduce myself. I'm 48 years old and I live outside of Ottawa, Canada with my wife and two young daughters. My educational background is electrical engineering and I work as a software designer.

I don't have any significant musical background, though I did learn to strum a guitar a few years ago, and I own both an electric and acoustic. I was attracted to Caustic because 1) it was dirt cheap 2) I'm too busy to practice on my guitars 3) it was compatible with my playbook tablet

The basics were a little confusing at first (what is an LFO? what did he mean turn this dial if I want some FM?). Since then I've learned a lot about music theory, synthesizers, vocoders, effects, separating sounds, mixing, beats ... I've noticed lately I can pick out the reverb when I listen to commercial music.

I feel like I still have quite a ways to go and I'm happy to keep learning.

Hello everyone! My name is

Hello everyone! My name is Spyro K., I was born in Greece and have been living mostly in New York City for many years now. I was in Rock bands when younger, singing, playing acoustic/electric guitar, flute and later keyboards. In the US, I worked on many different projects, including writing music for live multimedia performances, short films, contributed music to feature films, wrote music for NPR and produced various artists later in the Rock/Pop genre. I was always fascinated with sound and I am self taught. Most of the music I made in the past 15+ years is electronic, with a tendency to manipulate audio to sound like real instruments, so I like sound design quite a bit. I am an associate for an artist management/promotion and event organizing company so I get to meet new artists, interact with them and hear their ideas which most of the time surprise me for being new and fresh . My latest project is about making music on a tablet, using Caustic (that's a Greek word :), and showing off the versatility of this amazing app, and how it is possible to have full songs made that sound great and whole. People like Rej, are my heroes as they change the whole game on how and what can be done on a touch screen device, so music making is possible for everyone, anywhere! I am glad to be here and read and hear from a lot of creative people around the world. Keep it up - make great music!

Hi I'm Denis (Its the french

Hi I'm Denis (Its the french version of Dennis and is pronounced Den-Knee). I work in coupon redemption. Its kinda like a factory where coupons are sent from stores. We scan them so that the stores can be paid by the manufacturers. I hear a lot of bleeps and bloops all day. I get to wear headphones and listen to music all day too.  I live in New Brunswick Canada. Have been around a lot of Canada except for the Pacific Coast. I live with my wife and 4 year old son.  I got into electronic music when an aunt of mine gave me a mixtape of popular techno for my birthday back in the very early nineties. I was more interested in it than grunge. My older brother was into punk music and a little of that rubbed off on me. One day I snook into his room to look at his music cassettes while we were stationed in Montreal (my father was a flight engineer in the Canadian Air Force) and found some music that was not punk. I found Off Evil by Front 242, Psalm 69 by Ministry, Too Dark Park by Skinny Puppy and The Downward Spiral by none other than Nine Inch Nails. I secretly listened to them while he was out and my love for industrial music was born. He stopped listening to it very shortly after but I never did. What got me hooked was that it was electronic like the techno I loved but was so aggressive which the teenager in me hooked on to right away. Later that year I actually managed to convince my parents to let my 14 year old self go see Nine Inch Nails with my older brother as a shaperone.  During university I wanted to make electronic music. I got an old roland r8 drum machine and hooked it up to a metalzone distortion pedal. I got a Korg Triton and was in love with it. I met my wife in university and after a few years our son was about to be born. I was loosing our spare room which housed my equipment so I decided to sell it all to a friend. I lost contact with him for a while so I wasn't able to see my electronic babies. Time went on. Last year I was laid off work for a little while. In my boredom while being jobless I "acquired" a producer addition of FL studio and started to rekindle my love of making electronic music. I put my music on SoundCloud under the name Lost In Anomie. Anomie is a word I had heard while studying Sociology in University and I always wanted to use it if I ever made music. After a month passed my job called me back to work. This year after Christmas I treated myself to a 2nd Gen Nexus tablet because mainly I wanted something to play games on it, read comics, and use it as a learning tool for my son. After getting it I learned there was music production apps. I got FL studio mobile because I Ioved FL Studio on PC. I found though that the app was not the same experience at all. I stumbled upon Caustic because I was watching music production vids on YT and it suggested a vid that showed Caustic. It reminded me a lot of Reason but looked more simplistic so I bought and am very happy.

Hmm I guess I should chime in

Hmm I guess I should chime in here.  My name is Jason and I live in a suburb of Minneapolis MN USA.  I am 34 and have a wife and two daughters (6 and 2).  I have been in love with music my whole life but never ever taken a single music lesson until April of this year (a one-shot chord-style piano class).  

I grew up on a horse farm in the hilly part of southeastern Minnesota which was 40 miles from the nearest "big" city and led a very idyllic childhood riding Appaloosas and playing in the forest with my brother. This was wonderful but left me totally unprepared for the real world that faced me when I started school.  As such I had a sort of cultural vacuum and did not fit in with the other kids in my school.  When I became a teenager I first heard metal and grunge music and it sparked the desire in me to embrace dark music.  Then I heard Nine Inch Nails and got to see them on the Downward Spiral tour and developed a love affair with Industrial music that I maintain to this day.  Shortly after I discovered Skinny Puppy and Front 242 and Ministry and My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult and I was hooked!  

I soon found a club (50mi from my house!) that played Industrial music and went there as often as possible, eventually getting the opportunity to load in bands, and meet many of my favorite musicians (TKK, chemlab, sister machine gun, 16 volt and many others).  Around this time (age 15) I began learning computing and specifically computer hacking, and combined these things into a cyberpunk mentality that got me out of high school (and my parents' house) and into college for networking the following year.

Since then my loves of technology and music have progressed dramatically and I am now an IT Manager at a social service nonprofit, a freelance developer in the Drupal web content management system (which is what THIS SITE is made in!), and play in an industrial band (http://ketherband.com) as well producing electronic music on my own (http://17hex.net).  Caustic fits me and my style perfectly and has quickly become integral to my music making process.  I also want to say that I have been very impressed by the community here and how open everyone is.  This is what the Internet is all about, and I am very happy to be part of it.

Cheers!

I find it quite amusing that there are no less than three "Introduce Yourself" threads in this forum.

http://www.singlecellsoftware.com/node/3082

 

Anyway, "look, stePH's just this guy, you know?" while accurate and correct, isn't very informative, so I will elaborate:

stePH (short for stePHen) is just this guy living in Portland, Oregon (P-town) with his wife of ten years, her mother, and three cats. He works for Planned Parenthood, in a warehouse full of condoms, birth control pills, miscellaneous prescription drugs, and various generic medical supplies such as gauzes and scalpels and gloves.

Favored music is "progressive rock" such as Yes and King Crimson - favorite band is a Japanese group called Kenso; also partial to Japanese groups Ars Nova and Bi Kyo Ran. A deep and abiding love for all things Frank Zappa.
For this reason, my most desperately desired feature that's missing from Caustic is the ability to use time signatures other than 4-4. After that, the ability to change the tempo in a composition would be nice as well.

Also partial to some hip hop, particularly the "nerdcore" subgenre, favoring Schaffer the Darklord, MC Frontalot, Beefy, and K.Flay.

Though I haven't played an instrument in years, I used to play bass guitar well, guitar adequately, keyboards barely.

And I own a Chapman Stick.

Hi, my name is MarcoTM ( tm

Hi, my name is MarcoTM ( tm stands for trade mark ) i live in Amsterdam in the Netherlands and i am a 47 y old professional parasite of the welfare system of my country ( im unemployed) i studied art and have a master degree in media art wich is the artform of audio, video and electronics. Most of the stuff i create using computers. I am a pioneering type of guy who is always dong the kind of stuff almost nobody does and like to use things in a way they are not intended for. ( i graduated with a virtual museum with all my artwork that i created in the game duke nukem 3D) did 3d animation on the amiga for tv, and run a local tv channel with four friends using just household equipment. At the moment im running my own youtube channel (autistendisco, wich is also the name of my music project )with about 1000 followers. My first interactive website on the internet is from 1994 ( undress a marco ) and my first online video on the internet is from 1996 ( 20 years before youtube:)

i was always interested jn synthesizers and even owned a few in the 90's but never had the kind of setup to really create music untill rebirth, and later reason came along. I did a lot of experimental and house music and released 2 cds (not commercially) and then suddenly lost interest, i couldnt produce anything for 5 years. Than the ipad came along and slowly i started again, now in nanostudio, cubasis and caustic. Six months ago i decieded to give my pc to a friend and work on tablets alone. I like restricktions and minimal recources to work on and have a bit of an obsession to use equipment on the lowest energy usage possible. Im still an artist but not proffessional and i like to experiment a lot. One thing i did was live in my bedroom for 6 months only using ledlights and cooking on spiritus and running my equipment on just a 100 watt solar panel just to see if it can be done and its still a work in progress:)

Musically i am trying to get away from the pattern and loop orientated music to more live playing but i still have a long way to go, mastering the keyboard and im a slow learner. I found out that most brilliant electronic music albums are all mainly played by hand, i mean even kraftwerk has human drummers.

i live in the amsterdam north with a romenian housemate and i have a dog named Robin.

 

this is my first cd that i did in reason and dectalk ( a text to speech engine ) on a 400 mhz celeron pc.

Well, i just found this forum

Well, i just found this forum and I'm really glad to be here with all these amazing people!

Anyway, my real name is Mark Morido and I'm from the Pearl of the East. (Reply if you're from the Philippines, too!) I'm turning 19 soon and barely have any achievements in life. (Unless you count graduating from pre school up to high school as an honor student an achievement!)

My love for electronic music began when i heard Adventure Club's song Need your Heart with Kai. It wasn't the first dubstep song i heard, and like most people, i didn't love it the first time i heard it. But as i listened to dubstep more, it grew up inside me, how the music conveys much emotion and how good the vocals were, and i realized that it wasn't just noise. It was like a modern day orchestra with instruments playing in harmony. That made me turn to more old style dubstep (chillstep) and also made me hate the more mainstream brostep. (Brostep is actually very noisy and there's no feeling to it) When house music also came to popularity i began digging into more electronic music and later learned about the funkier glitch hop.

I also watched a lot of video tutorials and read many music theory sites long before i learned about caustic. I even have an app for looking for chords!

That was basically the most background i had. I grew up in a very strict family that pushes me into more productive works and music was one of the last things in the list.

Aside from Adventure club, my love for music is also inspired by Zedd, Stephen Swartz, Skrux, Culture Code, Pegboard Nerds, Tristam, Crywolf and Cash Cash. I like music that's not so mainstream. Pop is the last of the genres i love. Combine all of the above and that is pretty much my style.

I have a knack for artistic passions, which includes graphic design, literature, poetry, singing and baking, though I'm not so sure if I'm any good at all of them.

I work for my dad, and our family have established quite a business in repairing air conditioners and such.

That's pretty much who i am.

Oh, and i also strongly believe that music should be treated with respect and made with emotions, not just for money or fame.

Trust  me, there will be a

Trust  me, there will be a ton of tools for guitar and amp modelling, and mix that with PocketKit and my virtual bass guitar patches, you will have a serious sounding rock band in your pocket.... I will hopefully have a new video/audio demo soon showcasing acoustic modelling for rock stuff.... it's amazing that I could pull it off in the first place....   Yeah I have three lil' girlies here...

Hi there. This is Gabriel,

Hi there. This is Gabriel, from Madrid, Spain. There was a Hammond H-100 organ in my parents home, so this was the starting point to playing and composing music... many years ago. I see myself as a composer rather than an instrument player. Some years later, in the earliest 90's, the father of my girlfriend gave me an Atari with one of the first versions of Cubase (only MIDI, no audio tracks, black&white interface and 10 inches screen). 

Meanwhile, I used to listen to bands such Pink Floyd, Supertramp. Alan Parsons, Police, Bowie, Queen, etc. At the same time I had strong influence of the electronic music played in clubs, and my friends used to listen reggae music. If we add the jazz and bossa that my father used to play in the Hammond, I feel lucky of this variety of styles.

I've being using Cubase since that time... and now I'm enjoying Caustic.

Hi everyone.

Hi everyone.

I'm Chris from a sleepy part of Lincolnshire in England. I've been making music since the days of windows 98 in as as many ways as i can think of. I'm a self employed joinery manufacturer by trade and in my spare time I play keys of various varieties in a space/psych rock band currently touring local festivals and pubs. I also build lofi electronic analog instruments which could loosely be described as synths, but only in the most basic sense. For almost as long as i've been making music i've been interested in doing it in a portable fashion and on games consoles. I started with Pocket Music on the Gameboy Colour, Nitrotracker and DS10 on the Nintendo DS and have recently been using Beaterator on the PSP. After these seeing what Caustic can do is rather mind blowing, especially considering the price! Oh yes, and i also like my video games, the number one distraction away from making music for me unfortunately.

Keep that TWG lightly oiled

Keep that TWG lightly oiled with genuine Hammond brand lubricant every six months at least, she'll keep purring like a kitten for many years to come...

Anyways, again, Welcome new Caustic Warriors!

New Here

Hey, my names Nik. I'm a lil new here but have had time to explore the forum a bit. I have posted a song or two attempting to get better at this music production hobby.
I am a drummer for my small church in Va, a college student at NSU, and I aspire to be a graphic artist (although im studying Biology).
I'm new to music production, discovering Caustic as an inexpensive yet powerful engine to express myself. I am drawn to chillstep, hoping one day to produce a hit or two. From there branching out to other genres will be my goal.

-Relax-

Yo folks, I'm m68k and after

Yo folks, I'm m68k and after test driving Caustic for a while (man, putting up the unlocker on a warez site was a bold move!) I finally decided to buy it today. I've always been interested in making music - it was torture to see all the interesting instruments like piano and guitar in primary school in the mid 80s, not being allowed to try them out. Only kids who took lessons were allowed to do so, talk about encouraging kids, eh.

Shortly after, I started using home computers, learning basic and doing first sound experiments. It became serious once I got an Amiga 500, it started a fairly common computer music career: GMC/MED on Amiga, Fast Tracker 2 on MSDOS, Cakewalk on Windows - and then it got interesting with Rebirth. Concentrated on other stuff for over ten years before going back to computer music - bought Renoise and a few VSTis, and now Caustic. 

My biggest issue when making music: I have tons of ideas, I just never finish my tracks! But hey, nobody expects me to, so i'm fine with it. Anyway, Caustic is an incredibly powerful tool for a really small price. Also, the whole unlocker thing impressed me a lot, so I just had to buy it. Maybe I can support the Caustic Army with some presets and sample banks once I've figured out how everything works.
