Importing a .caustic file

Importing a .caustic file into an existing Template would require a HUGE amount of work and UI from me. Right now, creating a new Template from a source .caustic file makes the most sense, export the bits (Sounds and Groupds) from that source .caustic file in the Template, then create new Templates from the library you have created exporting items from the source .caustic files.

This is not how the work flow is setup. A Template is essentially a .caustic file. I do not have the app setup up to take things out of a Template.

FYI, a Template does not actually hold actual Sounds, a Sound is an abstraction when saved to a file.

A Group actually holds Sounds, I could take Sounds out of a Group.

It's gonna take My person a

It's gonna take My person a few more dazes two get the hang of how two make sounds. But creating the new template two import from caustic. Is a resource now.... I just gotta figure out the groups. And then have a library of groups sooo I can throw away all these wasted templates. Not space. But as many has i have created two do what I have done...... Is rediculous!!

 I got 25 templates and I've made only 2 sounds. And no solid exports but 2.((( only in association of the 2 sounds two get the exports. ))) My person is doin' something backwards.

Plain stuuu'ooopid!!!

P.s. can u open old groups. And get them reused of old files?  Sounds like u can. And this seems like the enlightenment party.

No, ATM you cannot just open a Group file and edit it, just import into a Template.

Poor dirty... out of everyone

Poor dirty... out of everyone on scs and here you probably have the most passion for caustic and mike's app, yet as hard as we try to explain it just doesn't seem to click.

My advice... first delete all of those templates...especially if you have no idea what they are. Youre not losing anything you don't already have, just copies in a different format.

Also realize that you don't use guide to make music. That is what caustic is for. Guide gives you different ways to save parts of a caustic file. Once you have a bunch of parts saved (presets or sounds or groups) you can combine them in a new template if you'd like or add them to a caustic file you already made if you'd like. Or you can add one or more to a new template to export as caustic and use that as a foundation for a new song.

The thing is I think you already have with your videos. But I did the best I could. It has to click sooner or later.

 remix, can work with old

 remix, can work with old files.

 Old templates.

Old caustic files if gathered from sounds or groups.

 I think I wanna do everything and too much of everything caustic alone and my person is missing far more.

Cause my person wants two open up the template files right back in caustic only. But their is far more potential in remix as well.

*********

Ohhh fyi there r other apps out called remix for music on Google play none called called caustic remix. Or remix caustic. Just throw an idea.
