here is the Caustic file:
I always have an 'empty' song in Caustic called Sound Lab. I use it to make presets but mostly to check out presets I've downloaded from here or bought at Google Play. Lately I have been trying to organize all the presets by category, creating folders etc. It's lot's of work but worth it!
I was messing around with the Glitch Kit and put a random string of 16th notes to fill in a bar. It sounded like a song I'd heard but it took me awhile to figure it out. 1983's Rockit by Herbie Hancock and Bill Laswell!
I didn't know much about it but it turns out that was the first 'main stream' song to feature scratching and kind of made it popular.
OK so now I had to figure out how to scratch Caustic. So this is more like an homage to those 80's sounds . The middle section is a result of me being inspired by the great pad/string sounds in Skarabee's recent 'season' tracks and the massive pad sounds in Mekanism by Matt Kwid. Also I've been really interested in old polyphonic synths the like the Oberheim Four Voice from 1976 . So to tie it in with the rest of the song, the middle part is where the rocket is free-floating in space...or maybe not.
