What we miss in Auxy πŸ™!

It used to be that projects and samples were all saved in iCloud. The folder structure looked like iCloud/Auxy/Samples (it’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 you’d have to airdrop or copy to Files app, etc.

That’s what crystldawn and ThoughtfulNoise are talking about

Okay now I get it.

Apparently, it was dropped due to apple’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 don’t begrudge the removal due to technical difficulties, I still feel it was a bad choice and it’s one of the reasons I’ve moved away from Auxy as a whole.

Ahaa. Guess it’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.

Interesting.

I typically fetch the latest backup version if I’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 can’t test myself. But yeah, any projects that don’t use samples outside of what’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 ”rare” 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 one…

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 can’t remember who. The red and pink used to be usable, but were removed until they were added back again, so that’s why they’re there.
