Caustic Music Rack is a new digital music app for Android which the developer describes as ReBirth or Reason —  for your pocket. The app features a number of tools for creating music including:

  • A virtual analog sybsynth
  • 2 PCM synths
  • 2 BassLine synths
  • Sampling drum machine
  • Mixer desk with delay, reverb, and other effects
  • Song sequencer

I took the app for a spin on a Motorola XOOM today, and while it’s designed for phones or tablets, I have to say it looks awesome on a nice big 10 inch display which gives you plenty of room for playing with the on-screen buttons and keyboards. The app also supports multitouch input for hitting a few notes at once or twisting knobs while you’re playing a note.

The app requires an 800 MHz or faster ARMv7 processor and an 800 x 480 pixel or larger display, but that should cover a fair number of Android smartphones and tablets released in the last few years.

Right now there’s a demo of Caustic available as a free download from the Android Market. A full paid version will be available soon. The free version lets you make all the music you like — but you won’t be able to save files until the full version is released.

  1. I’ll try it imediately! But don’t miss the music apps from mikrosonic! I love them

  2. Thanks so much for posting this. I’ve been looking for a decent Android music app and now that I’ve tried it on both an Archos 32 and Archos 70, I’m spreading the word as best I can! Is there some way to contact the developer?
