-===== Caustic Instruments ===== 
  
-Here are some notes about instruments I like to use in Caustic. 
- 
-==== Guitar ==== 
- 
-For a nice distorted guitar sound I use the PCMSynth with the Dist Guitar preset.

-==== OC-2 ==== 
- 
-One of my favorite sounds is the Boss OC-3 Guitar pedal. I don't reproduce the sound of that pedal very well but you can create a similar thick sound by adding a second PCMSynth with the Dist Guitar preset and then reduce the octave knob in the pitch section by one octave. Play the same notes as the guitar machine to get a thicker sound from the two playing together. 
- 
-There *might* be an easier way to do this that I just haven'​t discovered yet but there is no "​octaver"​ pedal in Caustic. 
- 
-==== Deep Bass ==== 
- 
-I like the deep bass I get from using the FMSynth with the PH E Bass preset. I got some pointers from other posters in a thread in the Caustic forum and did the following to get an even deeper bass sound. 
- 
-- Started with an FMSynth with the PH E Bass preset. 
-- I went to the effects module and added a Multi-Filter. 
-- I set the filter type to Low Shelf  (the default). 
-- I swept the Freq knob just above the lowest setting. 
-- I set the Reso to zero. 
-- I boosted the gain to taste.

-==== Piano ==== 
- 
-I'm not entirely happy with it but my favorite built in piano sound, so far, is an FMSynth with the PH EPiano preset. 
- 
-Better than that is the free add-on created by AudioVapor. You can find that in the Google Play store at the URL below.
