What we miss in Auxy ๐Ÿ™!

I think itโ€™s still here but now itโ€™s with airdrop, I think?

Itโ€™s just that little bit too much effort, compared to before, which was more seamless.
If I continue work on the other device, Iโ€™ll generally grab it from iOS Files Auxy backups, as I may not always have the device with the latest version on it with me when I fancy working on it more.

(Tbh, I thought the feature wasnโ€™t far off being perfect, so I was surprised and disappointed when they pulled it. It was a game-changer when they added it. Made a real difference to my x-device workflow.)

Did they ever explain why they pulled it?


Itโ€™s not, you used to be able to automatically sync projects between devices without having to do anything. Now you have to AirDrop them or send yourself a link


Idk what you mean by that.

It used to be that projects and samples were all saved in iCloud. The folder structure looked like iCloud/Auxy/Samples (itโ€™s actually still there now). You could have a project on like, an iPhone, even with samples, and if you picked up an iPad signed into the same iCloud account you could open that project and all the samples with no issues because they all pointed to the same place.

The change to locally stored samples came in version 6 I think? Or some 5.x release. So what happens now is that both projects and samples are stored locally. If you pick up another device all of the projects and samples no longer live in the cloud, so in order to continue on another device youโ€™d have to airdrop or copy to Files app, etc.

Thatโ€™s what crystldawn and ThoughtfulNoise are talking about


Okay now I get it.

Apparently, it was dropped due to appleโ€™s own API being hard to work with and causing performance issues when trying to load projects. So the feature was dropped back with 5.4, it was a month or two before 6 actually launched.

While I donโ€™t begrudge the removal due to technical difficulties, I still feel it was a bad choice and itโ€™s one of the reasons Iโ€™ve moved away from Auxy as a whole.


Ahaa. Guess itโ€™s understandable.
Still a shame though. So handy.

Like you, it kinda impacted how much I use Auxy, accelerating my move to using Ableton more.

Still a subscriber though.

I typically fetch the latest backup version if Iโ€™m picking something up on the other device. I guess the fact that I still use the existing iCloud Files/Auxy/Samples location for all new sample means that all the used samples locations still kinda connect up.

Backups are still there, just unclear on sample behavior. I always thought it needed to be imported to local app space to be used, but someone on another thread says otherwise. I have no idea canโ€™t test myself. But yeah, any projects that donโ€™t use samples outside of whatโ€™s available in Auxy can always be loaded from iCloud/Auxy/Backups


I just miss some of the old sounds which got changed. And some of the โ€rareโ€ colors like gold, violet, pastel blue, gray etc.


Made a project with some of the old colors, however I couldnt find my white one although I remember having- and using a white color. Heres the project link: https://app.auxy.co/projects/MeOCWfPVfzuJcgun1JMk7w==

Might just be wrong about white (my memory sucks) but I feel like there was oneโ€ฆ

The secret gray is a vibe

So there was a white one!! But where did you get all those others from?? (The brick, indigo, green, gray ones). I think the red and pink look pretty similar to usable colors though.

Wait wth you have a black one too?!

He probably had an old project that had all the colors

Someone other than the devs found a way to add them, but I canโ€™t remember who. The red and pink used to be usable, but were removed until they were added back again, so thatโ€™s why theyโ€™re there.
