What is PCMSynth export
In the Android Caustic app, the PCMSynth machine is able to load wav samples. The Lil Drum Machine application exports all current drum loops of each pattern into a single
.pcmsynth preset at the current BPM and pushes those
.wav loops into the preset file mapped from midi 60 up.
You can then load this preset into the Caustic Android app and play your loops with the main track you are working on.
If you decide to change the BPM of your Caustic track, you can then re-export the preset at the same BPM and hot swap in the Caustic App using the new PCMSynth preset.
Wrap - This option wraps the effect tail of the loop to the start for smooth looping.
Cut - This option does not wrap the effect tail, essentially cutting the tail off.
Silence - This option will include the full tail of the loop. Using this option, you will not have a perfect looping wav.
