Bundle 1 for Caustic 3
Julie Resynth, Acoustic Guitar, Marching Band Horn, Square Wave keyboard
Works with all versions of Caustic 3: Android, iOS, BlackBerry PlayBook and the free MacOS and Windows versions.
It includes 4 packs:
Julie Resynth: A fun cyborg vocal sample set, half human and half robot! This pack is based on one-shot samples of the voice of Julie, a Montreal jazz singer. But here the samples are resynthesized to create new ones that are playable chromatically across the keyboard. Both the demo and the full pack must be installed to have the complete content.
Square Wave: 13 PCMsynth presets and 2 Beatbox kits. The hardware electronic keyboard sampled here is a digital square wave instrument. It has 12 chromatic sounds, bass and 5 percussion sounds: kick, conga, snare, cymbal and hi-hat. All these do not sound like the acoustic instruments they're named after but more like the Sid chip, 80's and early 90's video games. Very good retro sounds for chip music (or chiptune).

Marching Band Horn: It uses a French horn mouthpiece and the range is a little lower than a trumpet and a little higher than a trombone. To make most of the instruments in this set I played single notes and resynthesized them to create multi-samples. In all cases the resulting tone is still very brassy and close to the natural one. The demo has 7 PCMSynth instruments and the full version adds 30 for a total of 37 instruments. Most are multi-sampled. Both the demo and the full pack must be installed to have the complete content. More info in the PDF files included in the free preview for the 3 packs above. And their more extensive computer version (in various other formats) are also on Sampleism.
Acoustic Guitar: A simple, good sounding multi-sampled acoustic guitar bank for the PCMSynth. The guitar had steel strings and was played with a pick. Recorded with 3 different microphones simultaneously: a condenser, a ribbon and a guitar pickup. The notes are not as even and perfect as in many sophisticated guitar libraries. Here's a comment Rej (Caustic's developer) made about it, the capitals are his: "On the other hand, after having done a test pattern, it sounds VERY natural, probably because of these imperfections... For me, it's really cool to have something that sounds so natural... it's a REAL recording of an imperfect instrument." The guitar does not have a demo in the free preview but here's the demo video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ev3ftY-cDrg
