Hello fellow Caustic users -- first-time poster here.
I've been using Caustic for just a couple of months (the unlocked version, on my Kindle Fire tablet), and enjoying it a lot. But I discovered something this weekend that concerns me.
I wanted to make a backup copy of my project, so while my Fire was connected to my Windows 10 PC via USB cable, I found the song file in the caustic/songs/ directory, and copied it to my PC.
As an experiment, I tried opening it in the Windows version of Caustic (which I had recently downloaded and installed). I was surprised to find that, while my instrument patterns were all there, the main song sequence was missing from the sequencer, as were all my mixer settings and insert effects.
I tried renaming this file and copying it back over to my Fire. When I opened it up there, I found the same things were missing.
I thought maybe this was because the Windows version of Caustic isn't as up-to-date as the Android version, and that opening it up there corrupted the file. But I wanted to be sure that was the problem.
So once again, I copied the original song file (which is still fully intact) from the Fire to the PC, but didn't open it up in Windows Caustic. Then I renamed it, and copied it back from the PC to the Fire. When I opened it in Caustic on the Fire, I found again that mixer settings, insert effects, and the main sequence were all missing.
Can anyone explain why this is happening? I'd really like to be able to back my song files up to my PC, but if I lose valuable information in the process, it's not workable. Is there a way to do this that doesn't strip out all that data?
