Lot of posts are here about new feature update requests, but I more worried about the availability of Caustic for newer devices. The time goes fast and phones get new system update all the time. If Caustic won't be updated then maybe on new phones it won't work. I use a Pie 9.0 phone. Caustic works good but I remember that when I installed the Caustic Key a pop up message said that it made for older devices and it may not work properly on my phone. So I hope that Caustic will never "close". It's the best mobile daw.

I worried about the future of Caustic.
Not a lot to say, it may (or may not) be updated and at some point it may (or may not) stop working... A the point it stops working install it on an old phone and export the midi etc for all your tracks and work out what to do next... But for now... It works... Enjoy it.

This is the 64bit warning for devs, Rej hasn't included a 64bitversion of the app along with the already implemented 32bit.
I have already compiled the core to 64bit and it works fine, Rej knows about all of this, he does. (Caustic on iOS is already 64bit if you are wondering)
regarding to this, (more like a compatibility issue) caustic 3 runs very well on my phone, BUT it won't let me to full screen the app like the mastering app does. how to get the full screen on my phone? i'm using mid end device (Realme 3)... any insights would be helpful. thank you!!!
sorry for posting question here. i've tried 3x to post my issue as forum thread but it seems the site won't let me (it says failed..)
> BUT it won't let me to full screen the app like the mastering app does.
Caustic might be using an older API for emersive mode, which could stop working on newer OSs, but I have no idea since it's Rej's app, just a guess.
I think Rej knows about these problems and I'm sure he won't stop updating. I have an android 9 and it works perfectly. I have not encountered any problems. I encountered a mastering bug (and immediately contacted Rej via email). I am sure that Rej will continue to update. There is also that all the requests for functionality that were also recently exposed have beset him and made the desire pass a little. It would be interesting to know who has android 10 and if it works. I bet yes.
Everyone has things they'd like to see added to a new version. The most important thing is just that it keeps working.
I have so much music hardware and software that no longer works because of OS updates, on both PC and Android.
Caustic is absolutely my favorite application on Android, and I use the PC version often. I often worry when Android makes another change that breaks older applications that Caustic will be also be affected. If our heroic developer ever has to alter Caustic so that it can continue working on ever changing Android API's, we should praise him for doing that work. I'd rather have it keep working then get a fine tuning knob on the FMsynth operators any day of the week.
I don't care if it's a long time before any new features get added. It would be great if Rej would pop in each year and say "Hey, I checked the new Android apis, we're fine!" (Which he did in the the recent past.) This man is a hero, and I am so grateful for what he has given us that I could write a book about it.
end of line.
@DasKreestof, thanks for your comment. It is a breath of fresh air. :) True, caustic still works and I think it will still work for a long time.
Even loopstack still works (and hasn't been updated for years) so there's no need to worry about the future of caustic. In what sense did you write a book on caustic?
I wrote "I could" write a book, not that I did.
I have started writing my own Caustic Manual, but I haven't finished it.
end of line.
A book good be written just about the 8 bit synth. That's a rare type of synthesis and it's not well explored. Nor are there many options for it outside of Caustic.
And of course a book good be written about the modular capabilities as well, especially when we use the machine input capability. Caustic is such an incredible feat for the work of one individual. It's the main thing that I love about having a smart phone.
end of line.
You're right, to be an app made by one man, it's incredible. I'm sorry that my compatriots tend to underestimate it.
Loopstack still works??? I had attempt to downloaded but my person saw the error it may not work and assume as much it won't finish downloading.
Often times. (((( in the past ))) Google play will have a game. No longer accessible.
But it will only be in your account history of the actual app.
And u download the said game and it takes forever longer than normal for the download two be complete.
Hmmm.... And thanx for your input Mr. Mike i'm glad i saw this.
Yes, loopstack still works. I downloaded it a few weeks ago on aptoide. The application works in full, the only thing it cannot do is save the files (although I have downloaded the full version).
Yes, on google play it's gone.
I want to offer whatever help I can to support Caustic and any related work. I still want to try Caustic Guide/Remix. I also have some ideas I would like to discuss. I would enjoy getting a message from someone about this. Is anyone still involved?
@Invalid, as far as Caustic is concerned at the moment, while as far as Mike and his apps are concerned, there is still working even if for now, he hasn't started anything about discord yet.
@Invalid I'm involved, I replied to your email.
