Please forgive if this topic has been addressed - I've just discovered Caustic (and am very impressed and excited, etc.) but I have one concern: Clearly it is both possible and encouraged to create "expansion packs" but as far as I can tell, these all consist of samples and/or presets to the existing synths that are part of Caustic itself. What is Caustic's philosophy towards allowing the community to write brand new synths and effects - perhaps in the form of vst-like plugins? For some forms of music new samples aren't sufficient: what's needed are new algorithms. It is clear that music synthesis on android has reached its time (and Caustic appears to be at the forefront, from what I can tell) - and as a developer I am hoping to find the platform with the brightest future to throw my efforts behind - can/will Caustic be seen as a platform in the future? Or as a single, albeit very well coded, self-contained app? It does seem that Caustic's modular design would lend itself naturally to allowing an ecosystem of synths and effects (vetted by the Author for quality perhaps?) to develop. Is there any plan to release an api (or has this already occurred)? Thanks and forgive my newb-dom!
