Fantastic App

I have tried several of these "all-in-one" music sequencing apps, including GarageBand and Korg Gadget. IMHO, Caustic is the best one I've tried so far. It has an extremely diverse and usable set of synthesizers. There is only one drum machine, but it too has a very diverse set of kits, including a couple of really "different" ones (Latin, congas, tablas, coffee can!). The whole app seems to have been very well thought out to provide lots of capability as well as ease of use. And, it looks like everything in the mixer, effects, and most synth settings can be automated! Not only that, but the documentation, tutorial videos, and manual are extremely well done and understandable. This app would be incredible at 5X the price. I'm going to be exploring this one for a LONG time...

Lot like Reason

Yeah and I love Reason. This is very much like P-Heads Reason for iPad that I had to say it. (though others are too I imagine). It's a great all in one composing program with a cool rack-like style that allows for the various synths, sampler, drum machine, other keyboards to be set up then routed through effects then ultimately sequenced and mixed. It's sweet and although it doesn't LOOK as smooth as Korg's Gadget but smoother than Pixitracker it works great! The modular synth (included) allows for some really complex patches. Works great with a controller so I actually just set up a bunch of keyboards and use it live with great ease. Very lightweight setup that sounds nice and fat. Buy it.

Almost perfect

With the ability to import sound fonts and instruments, this has become a hugely valuable tool for recording a raw sketch of a track. Two things that would make this even better,
1. MIDI Out. Would create an environment much like a desktop DAW controlling it's VSTs via piano roll... Which would be fantastic.
2. I understand that providing more inter-app compatibility is opening Pandora's box sometimes, but there are simply so many powerful effects processors and dynamic EQ modulators that would GREATLY enhance the quality of each track I record. Adding Inter-App effects to the mixer would allow me to mold tracks into much closer to final product than raw material.
