15 machines! ... have you hacked my app?

 

Very lush sound. I like the way you mixed in the vocoder at the end.

Summer's coming!

wow that was really very nicely done...im usually not a fan of reggae...but this was lovely...where did the vocals come from?  im guessing you broke them up into short bits in the pcm synth or beat box

...i agree with rej...lush sound, nice mix.

Vocals were recorded with

Vocals were recorded with Zoom H2 and loaded in PCm, then routed to Vocoder as modulator. 8bit synth also rendered to file and loaded in PCM for one of the pads, the other being a Padsynth. Summerbeach drumkits loaded in PCM and Beatbox. FM syth for bass.

OK, beta2 installed on my

OK, beta2 installed on my tablet. I didn't install previous version, because i had to use 2.12 for the show. 

Song loaded and runs smoothly. CPU gauge in the up/middle, sometime in the yellow zone. 

Bad typo for the "15" smiley. But if I count the vocal track, this is really 15 tracks, he he...

If I had somethig to hack, this would be your brain, Rej! I can't realize this is actually running on a rather old device, with 14 devices and a bunch of automation.

sure, a well crafted song

sure, a well crafted song always takes in consideration the vocalist...however i think you did a really good job on it...the little bit at the end where you vocal is exposed you sound really good.

Wow, that's YOUR voice...

Wow, that's YOUR voice... very nice dub tremolo. I couldn't even pick out a French accent in there at all. I thought you'd sampled this from one of your local guys.

Nah, Irish Mike (singer in our band Covers) is travelling across Canada and USA to visit family. It's funny that people here like my voice. I don't like it when I hear records...That's why I hide it under tons of effects and vocoderwink

This is great music Skarabee. The organ sounds really good and the mix is perfect. And you do have a great voice it's unique and has an honest quality. Those are my favorite things in a singing voice and I think those are the qualities  that make someone a real vocalist! Well done sir!

You will probably hate this version but it was a huge Rave tune in the UK in the early 90's. 

And nice work smiley

And the vocals are great smiley

Wardini got a good point

Wardini got a good point there, if every voice sounded the same music would be boring. Your voice sounds just fine in my ears, good articulation and just the right mood for this kind of songs. I know it’s hard to hear your own voice recorded, it took me ages to accept how my voice sounds. Great song Skarabee...yesyes

Thank you guys for the kind

Thank you guys for the kind wordsblush

Mekanism, I hope you won't give up, caustic 3 is on the roadwink! And I want to hear other's tracks too. It also help me and inspire me. I appreciate what you said about organic and live feeling, it's something I take care about, maybe because I played a lot on stage, and always want to hear my sequenced music as if it was played by musicians. But it's not an absolute rule. Sometime I go into very cold and mechanic things too.

In the past years, I almost gave up recording my own music, but Caustic gave me that immediate and organic feeling again, and I don't have to seat in the studio cockpit to put an idea out of my brain. The sound is not as polished as in other big daws, but I like it like that. I tried to add a little mastering to this track in Cubase. The result was larger, cleaner, but sounded sterile to my ears.

That's the problem with the

That's the problem with the bigger software DAW's these days..... you will find yourself, slaving yourself to death, trying to get the "perfect studio sound" out of your mix....  You can do it all in the Caustic App.... and learn to live with little imperfections..... with all the EQ and filtering tools in there, mastering can be done in an acceptable manner, and it's just more fun this way anyways, yes?

Yes, I've used the big stuff before, and I am much happier with the tools I use now..... and much less stressful too yescool

No skarabee, I don't be

No skarabee, I don't be giving up anytime soon I hope!  It can get frustrating for us noobs since we spend so much time trying to get our tracks the way we want and sometimes never achieve the level of polish we are hoping for.  Its also really frustrating to have great tracks in your head that you can't translate into an actual track because a lot of the time you are limited by the technical aspect or the music theory aspect.
