APP OF THE DAY
You got the beat
Auxy is a mobile music studio for both amateurs and pros.
Auxy Pro - Music & Beat Maker
A Studio in Your Pocket
If you have musical aspirations but are put off by terms like “digital-audio workstation”, Auxy will be music to your ears. This powerful audio sequencer is one of the easiest to master.
Thanks to the friendly interactive intro that launches when you first open the app, you’ll quickly figure out how to create complex loops and beats. As with similar apps, you’ll trigger different sounds by placing blocks on a grid. But Auxy makes fine-tuning extremely intuitive. Tap the name of an instrument to bring up a bevy of dials and sliders.
Of course, an audio creation app is only as appealing as its sounds. Auxy’s are especially sweet. The library includes samples from trance producer Airbase, the team at Puremagnetik (former collaborators with Ableton and Native Instruments) and many others.
And when you are ready to share your track with the world, take advantage of Auxy’s many export options: upload a compressed AAC or uncompressed WAV to SoundCloud, or export as MIDI. For inspiration, check out the playlists in Auxy’s news section to hear how top producers are putting the app to work just like you.
