First track - tinklepop

Hi all,

So I installed the app then found myself addicted to spending my commute on the train trying to come up with something. (Aside - just tested the WIndows version using dropbox to sync the files... awesome!)

I started with the idea for a slow beat and a wow-wow-wow type noise and it kind of went from there.  I added some sort of chord arpeggio melody then decided it needed a bridge before building up again for the finale.

You will soon be able to tell that I'm in no way a musician, still it was fun :)

Anyway, hope you enjoy

Cheers, Jon

Wow, thanks, that's

Wow, thanks, that's encouraging. I did it over a couple of weeks. I can see how you can get 90% there then spend ages tweaking.

I'd been listening to The Cure, Close to Me, if you know that song. That and Depeche Mode probably the main inspiration.

Thanks again for your

Thanks again for your feedback. I must also say thanks for the overview videos of the software and the different synths. Really helpful. I shall go and watch them all again now to learn more.

It appears that not only have I discovered Caustic I've also discovered SoundCloud and a whole bunch of creators of inspiring tracks. :-)

My wife said before this that I never put my phone down...
