Is there something

Is there something particularly wrong with the current version that prevents you from creatively making music?

Yeah creating music is still

Yeah creating music is still possible with your creativity, but why not get an update to improvise the UI and Quality and more Effects Options, this app looks really outdated on Mobile.

For the People begging for updates.

For the People begging for updates.

Yeah theres tons of stuff that you CAN do even without the update, there are endless posibilities for music, and a lot more stuff thats hiding  there, just not in plain sight. Make some music, realise what are your ambitions, and try to go with them, instead of asking for a new toy to play with. Its not the app that matters, its the user and his creativity, even in the Limited caustic enviroment... Theres tons of stuff that can be done even with all the limits in place.

Have you tried Synthesizing drums?

How much music have you made with Caustic? Are there any peaces that you are proud of?

Have yoiu explored everything that the community here has to offer?

Are you certain you have done everything that can be done with Caustic? Have you written every melody possible? figured out how every single chord in every single scale and its mode works?

Have you tried making music in every genre possible? 

ALL OF THOSE ARE POSSIBLE! Theres  resources there to help.

 

Is there really nothing else in here or caustic that can spark your interest and creativity? Is an Update going to help you make better music?And do you really believe that? Why?

Now lets try and think from the devs point of view... Shall we? (Rej if you are by chance reading this I'm sorry if I got some stuff wrong). Rej has a family, he has his own life, and he is the Only developer for caustic (probably *Cough* Mike *Cough* don't kill me). He has been working on this project for years... He put tons of work into it... And maybe he can't keep the same pace he used to.. Theres probably tons of things that go into that, but theres no use talking about it, he is afterall, a human... Deving takes lots of work, and I can't even imagine how Rej or Mike kept it up... Working on such a project probably drains you out fast, so try to symphasize with the dev(s)... They probably had all sorts of doubts...

And people begging for updates probably don't help... At all... It turns into outside pressure... 

So please, anyone think before begging for updates... Do you need them that badly? Have you done everything that is possible? Have you explored every nook and crany... Hell, if you are up to it, go Dev for SCS https://singlecellsoftware.com/node/3668 yourself ^^

But if not, using the app to the fullest and enjoying the time while doing that is the least you can do... So go make Music, get inspired, learn synthesis and how synthesizers work, explore genres which you have never made, get to know the people here, explore the forums. Theres tons of stuff that CAN be done.

Now go on and make some music, its hard, it always is... But don't expect a tool to make creativity easy ^^

@Jonavin, if you were

@Jonavin, if you were seriously hoping for Tuesday (I can't be sure), then you were listening to RobFarley, who always answers "Tuesday" when people ask for an update. The answer is always "Tuesday".  Sorry, if that misled you.  Just dig into Caustic as it is, because I assure you, it will take a very long time to exhaust the possibilities.

Caustic only needs a master

Caustic only needs a master tempo knob for midi clock like a groovebox

Rej had planned an update in

Rej had planned an update in response to some big changes Google were going to make with Android in terms of app permissions and managing storage. Close to the last minute Google either binned or delayed the changes.

I think the changes may have been made in Android 10 but the expected wholesale changes weren't rolled out and the need to update Caustic by August disappeared. So now we're back to Rej updating Caustic as and when, and IF, he is motivated to. The less we act all entitled the more likely it is, the more we demand or insist the less likely it is.

..and I'm not trying to have

..and I'm not trying to have a go at all those that want an update, just trying to state things as I think they are. Like most people I'd love an update because each time there's an update I get inspired to try out all the new toys but it's my problem that sometimes I need the spark to come from outside not inside.

People can make their own sparks by approaching Caustic from a different direction - experiment with scales, with tempo changes, with the audio editor. The list goes on.

With regards to feeling your

With regards to feeling your music is stale and needs a lift, I recently found myself stuck in a rut of although I was producing music it was all a bit samey samey... So I decided to actively try and make other flavours of music outside of what I usually do, starting with different synths, not starting with a chord progression, trying to orchestrate the music differently, listening to music that I wouldn't usually listen to and "borrowing" from there making it your own thing. Ultimately ending up with music that is still very much "me" but not in the style I'd got stuck in...

Personally, I've been hoping

Personally, I've been hoping we'll see an update soon because Apple announced they're deprecating Inter-App Audio starting with iOS13/iPadOS . I know deprecation doesn't mean it will be abruptly shut down or anything, but it does make me a bit worried about the future of my favorite music making tool.

Rob, a big reason for my

Rob, a big reason for my fallow period is that the headphone socket on my Pixel C tablet has been on the blink for more than a year and basically won't work with my beloved ATH-M50's and is now crapping out with my AKG's (they're my iPod, on the move headphones normally). I bought a Chromebook with touchscreen to use as huge tablet and although I love it for watching TV and browsing the internet, the sound is strangely rubbish and I have to have the sound around the 90% mark to use Caustic (I still really like it https://www.asus.com/uk/2-in-1-PCs/ASUS-Chromebook-Flip-C302CA/ and I like the Macbook / Elitebook styling). Not sure whether the giant screen (that was the real reason I bought it) is actually better for Caustic after all - the stems I've made on it are atrociously uninspired.

So, finally after months of looking on eBay on and off I bought a Pixel C tablet for ¬£230 and am back to loving it. May try and get my old one repaired now I am slightly less precious about it.

Expect some new music soon!*

* I have a metric ton of stems so it may be new old music

Hey James I'm currently in

Hey James I'm currently in the middle or remixing / remastering astronomical anomaly... going back to something old and applying new techniques, using synths that didn't exist when you created it in the first place... Really satisfying making old shiz better...
