  • Caustic

    Caustic is a music creation tool inspired by rack-mount synthesizers / samplers rigs. Everything is real-time and optimized for mobile devices.

    • I discovered Caustic when I bought my first android tablet. I was hoping to find an android app version of REASON, which I was working with for years as an amateur. I loved composing with it whatever came into my mind. Fortunately CAUSTIC was my first try. I liked its logo I guess. The app itself was like a reduced to the max version of my beloved REASON. Installed CAUSTIC on any device I own. So I can create my music wherever I want. TyrannoSapiensBonsaiAug 2017 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
