(this may be a bit off tangent, but it kinda relates to sounds being similar mixed in with a “why i dont really use auxy a whole lot anymore” bit)
I’ve kinda had a similar experience with auxy sounds, even more so since i never used anything other then the demo sounds, so i feel like i hit that wall of “everything sounds the same” a bit sooner than most other people. It was getting hard for me to want to put more time and effort into the app to create a new sound or the one i was thinking of.
Eventually I found myself stepping away from auxy and opting to use garageband (now ableton) more often than opening the app up because i could have access to all the things i wanted from auxy without having to deal with tweaking all the parameters to create a new sound. I can make a gnarly bass preset and save it for later for instant access. I already have a very heavy/metal-style guitar i can just drop in and get to writing stuff with without having to tweak much. Granted ableton and garageband offer more natively than what auxy does, but I wouldn’t have put down auxy if it wasn’t for that wall i hit (which i think is the same one that people on the subscription are hitting now).
At this point it takes me less time to start/write a track in ableton than it does for me in auxy just because im fiddling around with the sounds and drums so much (granted the drum problem would probably be better if i had the subscription to just import all my drums).
I originally thought it was weird when some of the older auxy og’s decided to leave the community because they had “grown out” of the app. I was like “it’s a great tool. why just ditch it entirely?”, but now I think I get what they mean.
