Caustic Song file (optional):
I made this track to play with the off-grid option which is a new feature in Caustic3. It simulates the “humanize” function on bigger DAW’s, since this function isn’t available in Caustic (yet) I had to drag every single note in to place manually and that’s why I ended up with only two themes (and short song).
In this track I use 5 violins (PcmSynth), 1 kickdrum and 6 “Clogdancers” (BeatBox). I recommend using headphones to get the full effect.
The .caustic file was too big for uploading (38 Mb), probably the violin preset on 5 PCM's
Hope you enjoy…
I followed pablo64’s advice and removed the violin preset from the 5 PCM’s. The machines are still there with notes and all, all you have to do is download the preset from the PCM area and load it in all 5 machines. The preset is called ‘Sabotage violin’ and was ripped out from Wardini’s ‘Caustillian Overture in D Major’.
Yes, very interesting and can feel the off grid clogs.
As far as the file size, Rej and I have talked about this and its still up in the air what is going to happen, both Rej and I are on "vacation". :)
Well 38Mb is too much to ask for I think but it's up to you guys
Pan65.... i really admire that you always experiment new genres and sounds...good track...something different i heard via this track.
P.S Is this folk music of any country?,,,i have heard this sort of sounds in past dont remember exactly.

that was really beautiful...i love the clog dancers. if i didnt know better i might have thought they were real musicians playing.
You can hear similar music throughout all northern Europe but it’s more prominent in Scandinavia and the British isles. You can also hear the influence of it in American country music.
I’ll try to put the .caustic file in my DropBox later to night, but I’ll have to delete it soon to save space.
Nice to hear something different Pan65! It just goes to show that Caustic is not limited to Dubstep, Trance, House, Drum'n' Bass genres but can also do other types of dance music!
Perhaps you could upload the .caustic file with empty PCM Synths leaving just the pattern data and upload the PCM Violin preset seperately for users to load themselves?
It's not my kind of music but it shows what's possible with Caustic.
I use Caustic for only otwo weeks an C3 for two days.
What is this off-grid feature?
Song file sizes are getting bigger and bigger, partly my fault.... Some of my presets when you load them up, they can get quite large... Especially the Builderz ones.
And no I won't apologize for that ha! They only gonna get bigger and meaner when the first Caustic 3 Essentials Pack 1 rolls out soon....
PocketKit Pro gonna be large files sizes too...... ;)
Something's up because I'm not getting the player or the link... I really want to hear this! [restarts browser]

Wonderful stuff - so imaginative!
this feature allows you to input notes and edit notes without any quantization...if you press the note value box you will see the button on the left top "q-tize on off"
if you record notes into the pattern when this is turned off,..all your timing inconsistencies will be recorded too...when editing in the pattern editor you can shift the notes around without them snapping to the selected note value "grid"...this lets you mimic the nuances of instruments played live by letting make minute timming changes.
That’s a good idea there, I’ll try that
Thanks Gharwen and welcome to the community.
This track is only scratching the surface of the possibilities this app offers. I think danjdob answered your question quite well. Hope to here some of your tracks soon
What kind of device are you on Andy? Lately I been having some troubles playing SC-tracks in the community from my phone, but there’s no issues when I’m on my laptop.
I am really enjoying this. Besides the uniqueness of the track, the sounds and the mix are superb, well done sir!
Ha heh, what an exciting song!
Thanks Wardini, The violins are yours and the ‘clogs’ are just a wooden block smashed in to a marble-table in two different ways and recorded in Caustic via phone mic.

Nice celtic piece and well done. It reminds me some french traditionnal music. And good point for the title: Clog= Sabot in french...
Thanks Skarabee, the title got a double meaning since i'm destroying the perfect timing by going off-grid and the other part is as you say the French word for clog:)
A refreshingly different piece of music, very natural sounding, and nice stereo effect on the clogs!
