It is an amazing thing to think that you can make such high quality sounding music in just one app! Ever since I downloaded it in 2017 I have made 3 albums of original instrumentals. The only thing I wish it could have is the ability to shift tempos. All and all it is a solid app and it deserves a place in the top spot!!
Auxy is designed to be simple yet powerful and help you focus on your musical ideas. Our goal is to make it as smooth as possible to create song sketches or final tracks that sound professional.
”Auxy is my favorite way to get what's going on in my brain into a musical format. It's simple on the surface but with tremendous depth if you need it" - RAC
“The automation is terrific. I'm doing things with Auxy I wouldn't easily do with my DAW. The design style is insanely smart and forward-thinking. It's productive for me to use, but i've also shown it to children who have been able to have fun making real music. It's the best new audio product I've seen in a long time.” - Madeon
“The thing we love about Auxy is how it uses technology to let people be creative, without letting that technology get in the way.” - Apple Design Awards

Has the best piano roll but the app has simply not improved enough in the last year since going the subscription route.
Would prefer in app purchases for new functionality such as the sampler instrument. Will we ever see this??!
All suggestions for improvements to the app have been made on your forum. However, the Auxy team has a history of communicating poorly with their customers. Very weird for a subscription service.
Who knows what the future holds as they refuse to tell us 🤷🏼♂️.
Very disappointing as the app has so much potential.
do not subscribe they will steal your money
Please auxy developers make it so you can buy individual packs please I don’t have the money for a subscription!!!!!!!
I would buy this. I would not subscribe. Such a shame the guys behind this want to tie you in to a monthly tap into your purse/wallet. It’s worth a one- off fee.
Great and intuitive App (although I preferred the pre-subscription model where the developers gave you the option to buy sound packs) but it keeps crashing when I open it.
I hadn’t written any music for over 10 years due to having to be sat at a desk on my computer. All that changed with Auxy and right from day one I was writing songs with ease right in my phone. The smooth workflow means that you can easily make tweaks and write on the go and I quickly joined the premium subscription so that I could have access to all samples and upload my own. I managed to write a 12 track album in 6 months which is something I would have previously thought impossible, but Auxy made it happen. The devs are proactive and have listened to my suggestions. You will find many clones on the App Store but I’ve tried them all and none match Auxy.
This is a really good app and my only complaint is that it isn't on the google play store, I can't update it to the latest version on my iPad and I can't download it on my phone.
This is really good but money ruined it
I’ve been using it for years. The team is dedicated and love music. I’ve given them suggestions via email on how to improve the app and they have delivered time and again. Brilliant app for learning how to mould your own music if your are a beginner, but also a profoundly powerful tool for experienced users. Probably the best music making app on the AppStore. I don’t say this lightly, I have scoured the store for alternatives and Auxy, hands down gives the best entry level experience and provides the best sound pack upgrades via their subscription plan.
Would be nice to have more control over loop lengths.
Music made with odd bar lengths would be killer💪🏽💪🏽
Thank you so much
I can make a beat to anything
If I wanted to make a song with a specific beat
I knew I could rely on this app
It always had the right beats
Well done and thank you
This app used to be brilliant! But now with the factor of literally not being able to make anything without paying for it. It’s sort of rediculous.
Thank You to the Auxy creator and the whole team for sharing an amazing platform
my computer blew up and Auxy seemed like the only option to create just off my phone it was the best choice.

it's 4.99 a month and although a trial is offered it triggers auto billing. my trial did not work properly anyway. i feel it should be offered as a trial, not free.
Was good to use infrequently but now you can’t even use it for free without paying £5/month,. It’s not worth that much for many casual users🤷🏽♂️
I love it keep doing more updates💖
This app is perfect for producing music! But for some reason whenever I upload to Instagram it won’t let me do it? Please fix this Auxy!
This is a MUST app download. I utterly adore this app. So much so iv sussed some good tips out for it and how to’s.
It does lack in the samples area though. There is PLENTY of percussion and drum samples but not many synth. Bass. Lead etc. Although you can add your own via your pc it would be nice to have more to work with.
I use this app daily and pay for the sub (which is well worth the money) iv also created my own YouTube channel to upload my mixes too. I do them all for fun. Ones I upload to Facebook people love them. I’d use this app 24/7 if I could I truly love it. The guys behind it truly deserve a medal for creating an app that’s actually worth downloading and paying for.
music has been a huge part of my life from a very young age. When I was growing up i didn’t really have anything else. I didn’t have the normal childhood most kids had. Even now Music goes everywhere with me. To the shops. To work. In the shower. I even have music on while I’m in bed. It’s something i can’t go without.
I started making own at the age of 14. Nothing professional but When you use packages like Cubase. Reason etc that take up HUGE amounts of space. Then use an app like this. This app is pretty much the same thing just smaller in size but equally as good a quality.
Call me big headed but I don’t even listen to my music library anymore I listen to my own mixes haha. If I could get a job using this app I’d be over the moon. I’d get everyone downloading it and show them how to use it too. Apps like this only come along once in a blue moon.
The one thing I’m not keen on (which is nothing to do with this app) is how I have to record my mixes. I have to use apples own screen recorder which is to say the least the worst damn recorder iv ever used. It only records in mono and you don’t get anywhere near the full quality sound from it as what you get listening to the mix in auxy. When you play it back it sounds awful. Compile that with facebooks equally as rubbish uploader. So called “hd” your mix ends up sounding like a muffled chewed up cassette from the 80s being played on a decades old player. Considering technology we have today this is just not acceptable anymore. To me anyway. I have a keen ear for quality.
I know You can export your mix but that means you can’t edit it afterwords and I’m always making changes to mine to fine tune them. So that’s not an option for me.
But guys please keep up the good work. To me this app is the ONLY reason that makes the App Store worth visiting at all.
I love this app so much, I can get why it’s app of the day today, unless your reading this any other day apart from, Saturday the 10th of November 2018
What’s with all this subscription fees to use the apps full potential - jeez, even pro iOS audio workstations like Cubasis or apps like the Moog synths or Korg - Korg Gadget is 100’s of times more powerful than this - and easy to get into. Once you get your confidence up, you can then but more Gadget plug ins should you want them.
ALL FOR A FIXED PRICE.
Sorry guys but these subscription models are getting hammered online and in mags like FM or Computer Music.
Why? Basically they’re not even remotely serious apps - toys/ gimmicks/ time savers on the tube, yes but NOBODY buys this to use in a studio and expects to pay a regular fee.
It’s a joke - not even a funny one
Again, you need to improve the audio, seriously overhaul the GUI and then go back to charging a couple bucks - and another buck for soundpacks or effect packs.
Otherwise, Auxy will just fade away and die and be forgotten about in a month or 2.
Sorry for being honest guys.
I love the fact that u added a new one 198x but the sounds of it aren’t great but the fact that you guys are reading comments (also mine) is amazing 🤩 but can the sounds be not just technologically based I’m only ten and I love using this app so please don’t stop me because of the demo projects
WHAT I AM TRYING TO SAY IS THAT SOUNDS ARE AMAZING BUT THEY CAN BE BETTER
So everything was good i was making good beats and that then i rendered my video and saved it. Now my camera roll will not stop saving the beat regardless of me deleting the app
Ok, finally, it syncs with other apps, it has background audio.
I have a Korg minikeys that I use for midi note input on the move, it’s perfect.
But not auxy.
For some reason it’s gone backwards from every other app that exists.
Why can’t I input notes like a musician too ?
You’re WAY beyond the whole ‘standalone’ app schtick now.
You offer better functionality at far less expense than Korg Gadget (even with the oddly pricey ‘subscription’), so let me plug my midi keyboard in so I can jam this thing.
I’d almost have the app 6 mounts when they go money hungry and every thing is now paid
Before i could buy soundpacks, now with the monthly subscription I’m really disappointed... I can’t afford a monthly payments... please change it back!
Just updated to the new version and every time I delete an instrument the app crashes and closes and I go back on to find the instrument still there, 1 Star for this update 5 Star for the app in general
I used to use it all the time before the updates. I’d prefer the older Auxy to the newer Auxy.
This used to be an amazing app that I loved to use but the removal of most ‘free’ sounds and the introduction of having to pay £5 a month subscription for any decent beats or melodies has ruined the app. It was good, it is now terrible due to human greed.
Used to love using it occasionally, but new version is unusable while unsubscribed.
I’d love to pay to keep using it, but, as a casual user, the current subscription model offers more value than I need for more money than I’m willing to pay. Unfortunately there is no option to pay less to get less. The current pricing model is one-size-fits-all, all-or-nothing, and is leaving my and other casual users’ money on the table.
Message to the developers:
I get it. You need a constant revenue stream. But now your audience is limited to hardcore users for whom subscribing makes sense. If I use the app once a month, to play around with, the current subscription doesn’t make sense. Also, consider that outside the western and rich asian countries, 5£ / m is not a negligible sum.
Here’s my suggestion:
Keep the current subscription model for power users, and offer just the original sounds for a one-time purchase. Or, offer another, £1 / month subscription for just the original sounds, maybe plus one other random pack that rotates each month or so, to encourage upgrades.
Pricing is an art, and with such a big impact on the bottom line, it literally pays to make sure you have an option that works for each of the casuals, committed, and ultra-hardcore markets.
Hope my thoughts helped.
Auxy used to be good. The original sounds used to be unlocked, but now they are blocked and you have to PAY FOR LITERALLY EVERYTHING. Auxy used to be free, awesome, and enjoyable. But now, now it’s just a money-grabbing app. Well done for messing it up
It’s good fun but I just don’t want to subscribe. I’d be happy to pay once, but monthly payments are not something I will ever do. Without the subscription the sounds available are very limited, so only 2 stars which is a shame as it has so much potential.
Auxy used to be an amazingly fun app and I would spend hours making music, but since they released a few new updates the app has downgraded.
There is less of a choice of sound and to get good soundtracks you need to pay for them (which I’m not willing to do.)
I only want a free way to make music to pass time but I no longer enjoy the app.
I find it hard to say a bad thing about this app.I use this app a lot but I like to keep my songs organised and I find it very without folders!!!!Apart from the this is a very good app
I *love* the app and all of its features!
I’d like to suggest maybe being able to change to different types of reverbs and delays? As in different sizes/ types so that you have more variety in the dynamics of your sound?
I’m sure many would love to see in possible future updates different kinds of effects other than what there is already (and they are already amazing!) just to keep tracks fresh and give them that proper “unique” feel to them, and so that Auxy can be truly modular to give creators more options for their tracks.
Again, simply a suggestion! I *love* the app as it is and this is just some wishful thinking on my part!
I absolutely adore this app, it is capable of so much but I have be say I preferred the single dots showing the individual instrument loop and got upset when it updated 😂, if other people agree.. please revert it back
I loved having Auxy and I was fine with the demo stuff and I had loads of fun making basic songs. BUT NOW I HAVE TO PAY FOR EVERYTHING NOW??!!! even the cheap stuff I have to pay for WHICH I WONT!!! you guys are just sick. These guys are just getting greedy now. DONT DOWNLOAD. There are plenty of other FREE APPS with similar things. #WORST KIND OF PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!
Used to be a great app without paying for premium but the new update made it so there are only about 7 melodic and5beat sounds to choose from
Love this app perfect for all Music makers I really enjoy making my own tracks on this app it’s easy to use loads of sound to create all type of music defiantly recommend this to all
one of those make beats for fun apps that are acc easy to use and so fun!! could waste hours on this app ... so much fun with over head headphones ty i love it xx
Best app so far to create your own music
The app itself is pretty impressive, and offers lots of control. Making simple loops is, well, simple. But simple loops get very boring very quickly. If you want to make anything approaching an actual song that anyone would want to listen to for more than 10 seconds, be prepared to put some (at times very fiddly) graft in...
The free version lets you do a certain amount reasonably well, but if you want a wider range of interesting sounds you’ll have to fork out nearly £50 every year. Which seems like a lot for casual use. Too much? For me and my small army of Netflix, Spotify, Apple, Dropbox, blahblahblah subscriptions I’m afraid it’s a Subscription Too Far.
You can access sound to create anything good unless you subscribe. This was not the case since the last update, all my songs consists of “DEMO” sounds now, i cam no longer edit or create and good. Money Grabbers!,,
Sounds absolutely amazing but I wish there was more sounds to chose from
I got this a few months ago before the update. Now most features need the subscription, drums have been dumbed down and compressors etc have been lost so I can’t use this app for what it was great at for me, which was just having a few minutes of creativity or quashing boredom.
I definitely don’t have time to make longer tracks, but I loved this for the sounds you could create and it no longer works for that purpose.
I understand these guys need to make money some how and I wasn’t far off buying some of the sound packs that were on offer since I wanted to expand the library a bit more.
Now even at £40-odd a year it’s just not worth my money spending time on a ‘light’ hobby.
I never trust it when a company takes away a pay for what you use model and replaces it with a subscription based model. Yeah, you may get more but then inevitably you have to fork out more over time once the model changes again and some premium features become ‘pro’ or ‘expert’.
I’ve been suckered in to too many apps this way and have a huge catalog of apps that I once paid full price for, became free, with ‘packs’, you buy the packs, then there’s a subscription.
I’ve just walked away from them in the end.
No thank you
Just received the standard response, clearly they don’t bother reading this and just send a stock message.
If they had bothered then they’d understand this isn’t the best response:
“Sorry you don't like the new version! As a customer, it’s obviously better to get something for free than to pay for it. Unfortunately, keeping the app free and selling sound packs hasn’t been a successful strategy for us. We simply didn’t make enough money to sustain the company. We’re just two people building Auxy and we’re working really hard to make something great. In order to keep Auxy alive we had to shift strategy and try to get people who love and use the app to pay a little bit to support us. Thanks for your support!"
As a free user I was sad to see the original drum offering reduced to a few samples. Am I doing something wrong or can I not use the old drum kits? I still love Auxy, it’s innovative and fun to create professional sounding songs on the go.
How about adding a one off 1.99 or 4.99 purchase to gain the old kits back?
I like the new update with the custom drum kits, however, I only rated 4 stars because I would like a feature that allows you to see the duration of the song. I think this would really help instead of exporting it several times to see the length.
This app was awesome before the update. Now you got to buy the drum sounds. Neh!
