Caustic 3 Reviews

    You could get an iPad and drool over a stupid piano app, or you can stick with Android and get lost in this crazy synthesizer. Caustic 2 is a little different than most synth apps in the sense that it's more along the lines of a full-on DAW.

    Whether you use the free app to ponder your dj dreams or go pro, this application is awesome. It's a studio in your pocket and more. If you love music this should be on your list.

    Reminiscent of the popular Reason. Caustic has some killer synths and drums and is as intuitive as it gets.

    Reviewed in Some great apps you may not know. Yet.

    I would be lying if I said I understand 10% of the stuff in this app. But that doesn't mean I don't appreciate the most comprehensive beat maker for android. Even if you're like me, it's fun to mess around and create some beeping sounds. Free version doesn't allow saving.

    The easiest and best music creation package I have ever used on the Android platform. This has so many synths built-in, including a vocoder and an excellent drum machine. I use FL Studio on my desktop, but this beats the mobile version of FL Studio by a mile in my opinion.
