Caustic on a Chromebook? Anyone tried it?

Okay, now that Chromium OS has more offline capabilities, and now most modern Chromebooks have touchscreens and support Android apps...I'm seriously thinking of a Chromebook as my next portable device.

The new Google Pixel Slate looks amazing BUT I guess a key question is 'is Caustic any good on a Chromebook, what's the latency like etc.'

Caustic ChromeOS

I got it up and running just fine. Caustic won't ask for the permissions to connect my midi device though therefore won't register my controller. everything else works just find though. A little disappointing but pretty awesome all the same. Cheers hope that was helpful.

it was, thanks - is that the Android version through Google Play? I.e. not a Linux version.

Disappointing if midi controllers don't work - maybe a deal breaker for me indecision

I agree. Never really got any

I agree. Never really got any use out of my Caustic on Android license due to latency on the MIDI input (and the tiny screen on my Samsong S6). Was hoping this would be better on the larger ChromeOS device, but MIDI connection is stopping me.

A bit strange though because a lot of other MIDI synths for Android are working just fine.
