Track with an acid video!

Hi there! 

I discovered Caustic a week ago and I've had much fun with it. I've never produced music before and I do not play any instruments. Anyway, that dosn't stop me :)

This weekend I've made a short odd track and spiced it up with stop-motion video:

The drums are panned left,

The drums are panned left, did you use the width control in the main mixer? Other than that I liked it a lot smiley

You are right... I thought it

You are right... I thought it was just my imagination. It's odd cause I've checked the settings and the knob is centered.

But thanks! :D

if you've used the Width

if you've used the Width setting on the drums it doesn't matter if the panning is still central, there's been a few posts in the Bug reports forum about this. You can either pan to the right to offset the effect introduced when you use Width or you can remove Width instead.

The general feeling is that Width works best for Lead and Pad type sounds, and not so well for drums and bass.

For your first Caustic track,

For your first Caustic track, you are off to a great start... keep it up, and your animation is a unique feature for you.... keep that up too.

Welcome to the group!

the synth wash is lovely, a really great sound. Is it one of the presets or did you create it?

Thanks jblann :) Yeah that

Thanks jblann :) Yeah that animation was really tricky. I'm using Blender for mixing images and track. But I had a hard time getting the images to match the music. So, perhaps I should get some better video editing software.
