* BassLine - 303-like monosynth
* BeatBox - 8-channel sampling drum machine
* PadSynth - Harmonic table pad synthesizer
* 8BitSynth - 8bit equation solver synthesizer
* Modular - Fully configurable and routable synthesizer
* Organ - Tonewheel organ with rotary speaker
* Vocoder - 8-band harmonic vocoder
* FMSynth - DX-style 3-operator fm synthesizer
* KSSynth - Karplus-Strong string modeling synthesizer
* SawSynth - Supersaw-type synthesizer
The app also includes:
* Effects rack supporting 2 effects per machine (20 effect types).
* Mixer desk with EQ, panning and global Delay/Reverb effects.
* Master section with effect slots, parametric EQ and limiter.
* Song sequencer
AudioBus support for Input and Output slots.
AudioCopy Paste + AudioShare support for import and export.
Supports automation recording on most controls and includes powerful editors for modifying automation curves.
Users can record their own WAV files for use in the PCMSynth, BeatBox, and Vocoder or import files through iTunes file sharing, ACP, AudioShare, or the built-in FTP server.
Supports all uncompressed WAV files (8-16-24-32bit, any sampling rate).
The PCMSynth can also load SoundFont files (.sf2), SFZ and FL/Xewton instruments (.instr, .ZIP)
"Open In.." import support for all preset types, .WAV, .SF2 and .MID.
(MIDI (.mid) files can be imported as raw sequencer note data.)

Ratings and Reviews
I love it, very powerful sequencer and diverse selection of synths. Downloaded and played with it for hours before i could stop.
This would be a five star review if it was more updated though. It's been two years since the last update and the app needs more than an interface refresh. If it weren't so good i wouldn't have tolerated the black borders and the clunky buttons.
Edited for BLUETOOTH
I love Caustic... I have been using it for years, I haven’t found another DAW app like this ever...
I had to edit this review because it really really sucks that when I got a new iPad, and connected my AirPods, Caustics audio still plays through the external speakers.
PLEASE REJ PLEASE I WILL PAY YOU FOR THIS
No Bluetooth, no Aux (IPad Pro 11)...
Ya I will be looking for a refund.
