I just want to preface this post with the fact that I say these are good QoL improvements. However, in terms of the overwhelming facts that I have to go through each time I export every single error I make every single time, I strongly feel that the way Auxy is gearing itself in the future isn’t even close to being reached yet.
Before, Lenberg stated that he wants Auxy to be used in the process of making a banger track, and that the 80-20% principal would be the future goal of Auxy. I’ve debated how this is selling Auxy’s potentials short numerous times, but this is not what that’s about. For the 20% of the process, the tools we have are very lacking in features. Sure, we have export to midi and export individual parts, but they work occasionally. Just last week I had to re-render because one part of my track was completely silent and didn’t actually render, an error I had reported previously but was never addressed. Many times were suggestions such as selecting which parts to export, exporting drum samples individually by sample instead of as a whole kit, and many other things were brought up. Not to mention other much needed QoL improvements such as an ”undo button”…
I love Auxy. I love it as a product. I love how it’s taking itself seriously. But what I don’t love is feeling burned by it by feeling that the suggestions that I or many others make don’t matter. That they aren’t important enough or are beyond the scope of what the developers have in mind. Which is why I suggested having a voting system for upcoming features, so maybe some interest could be gaged from the user base instead of just a small handful of testers and users.
That may not be the case for a lot of users, and I can only say this for myself, but I am personally upset and disappointed with the way I have had to interact with the developers in the last year. To get any sort of response, I had to be extremely negative and disrespectful, to only have them come in and tell me to back off after brushing it off like nothing was wrong and everything was solved. At this point, I don’t really know what I can do. I don’t see Auxy down a path of success any longer. I’ve grown tired of producing to a certain degree even, because all of these issues keep piling up and weighing me down as I try to express myself. And I don’t know what can change that anymore aside from moving on.
Maybe I don’t know where I’m going with this, but I really hope that things change soon, for the better. I can only dream that, of course.
