User reviews of Caustic 3
A+. Very smooth and acurate. If I knew how to drop a beat, I'd use this. Since I don't, uninstalled. HTC Desire.

Caustic is great but it crashes every time i attempt to get the full version.

I've tried a heap of music making apps (inc iphone) and this blows them all out of the water. Easy to learn, clear interface and gives you massive creative control. Bargain price too - thank you Caustic developer!

Unbelievable I wasn't expecting this app to be so fantastic. I initially downloaded as a tool to teach my kids a few songs, but once I opened the app and started composing I was amazed. The quality of the tools is outstanding, and the UI is familiar and easy to use. This is by far, the best mobile music app that I have ever used.
