Following another topic, I saw that many users want to progress in mixing and composing. So I had an idea for a collaborative work, a sort of game.
Things are organised in Sessions and Sections.
At the beginning, you start a Session with a .Caustic file, with a simple given theme, a single pattern on a single machine, with no automation. This have to be the intro and outro of your work. In the middle, there is place for your creativity!. When you have finished, you send back the Caustic file. This will be called a Section.
The next player will have two choices: He can append his works (his section) to yours on the same Caustic file, using the same sounds or adding some new sounds or machines if you let some free slots. Or he can start another Session with a new set of machines, with the same beginning rules (the same single pattern on a single machine). Session will be closed when no more things (sounds or... ideas) can be added.
Sections could be then mixed if needed a published as a Session (Maybe a set in a dedicated Soundcloud?). And Sessions can also be linked (in a meta-set?;-)
Hope this is clear enough...
I wil send a first try soon
