Caustic 3

Postby JSantos » Tue Mar 01, 2016 3:22 pm

Anybody ever tried it? I've really been getting great results with it to be honest. The OTG to MIDI keyboard feature had me sit down in a coffee shop for hours crafting ideas.

Bumping up!

I'd really love to hear your stuff guys. This is something which I think is kind of breathtaking.

I tried it again (used to have a v2 license) last week end after seeing raving reviews on the Renoise FB group - that some chaps were able to get some real job done with it.
But I still don't like it. Sounds to my hears like a plastic toy, sequencer doesn't seems to support live looping, just linear boredom (although I can understand this appeals to the FL crowd).
I quickly went back to https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.quet.android.audioid&hl=en which is far more pleasant for doodling around.

it's nice to play around with, cool that it's possible these days to have such a versatile instrument in your pocket. I'm a child of the 80's so it impresses me :D Of course it lacks the flexibility of Carla+qtractor+a ton of LV2 plugins, and probably the limited processing power puts constraints on sound quality, but I don't agree it sounds like a toy.

Can anyone here run Caustic 3 on Linux, preferably on Debian?

It runs for me, but I can't get any sound from it. In fact, the playback needle won't even move when playing a track.

I've been able to make version 2 run on Ubuntu a long time. When 3 came out, I had moved to Debian and it's never worked for me. I've tried everything I could.

There is a newer version with different graphical libraries, but I always wanted to run version 3.1.0 in case someone wants to try:

I have a license, but pattern sequencing is not really my thing, I purchased it because it was cool, and still play around a little with it... will have to dig up a tune made with it and post it somewhere. 8)

I tried to run it on Ubuntu 16.04. It started, GUI shows, but then nothing. Mouse cursor is not shown, and app does nothing.

Funny that someone bumped this thread today. I tried Caustic again for the heck of it just a few hours ago, and... it worked! :shock: It finally worked.

New version? No. Actually, the 3.2 series still doesn't work at all, but 3.1 does. Whatever changed was something in my Wine installation. I must have installed some DLL or changed something in the config. No idea. I just know it works, and it's freaking awesome. It's like having a whole new synth, and a very powerful one. It's too bad most people can't run it.

If you still can't run it, I suggest doing what I used to do before: run it on a phone or tablet, connect the device's output to your audio card or interface and use it as external hardware. It's worth it.

Is that available from somewhere still?

It is definitely nice, but small touch screens are not my cup of tea. Therefore I would prefer to get is running on my computer, one way or another. Even tried to start my old virtual windows. After one hour, not up yet. After night, it had suspended himself. And now it has been trying to resume for 45 mins.

Ok, and not I got it working. 'winetricks vcrun2013' and it works. It was using some wine internally provided version or something, and now it works!

Latest version, 3.2!
