We’d like to apologize for not giving you a proper heads-up before replacing the demo sounds! We’ve learned that this has been perceived as a rather hostile move due to the poor communication from our side.
Simply put, we screwed up and for this we’re sorry!
To remedy the situation, the “Original” sound pack has been unlocked and will remain free until the 1st of June. The pack will appear in the list of packs that require subscription, but you should still be able to select sounds and edit your old projects without limitations.
From June onward, Auxy will be a premium product with a very limited set of demo sounds. The reason we’re removing the free tier is pretty straightforward: We need the people who love and use the app regularly to also pay to support it. Otherwise we won’t be able to maintain and develop it further.
To clarify our ambition, we’d like to reiterate what we wrote in our post about the future of Auxy:
Auxy has come a long way but we still have many exciting things on the roadmap. Our biggest motivation is the magical feeling we get when we hear great new tracks from producers who work hard to push their music forward. We’re fully committed to support these producers who, like us, are determined to shape the future of music.
Feel free to share your feedback below and we’ll do our best to clarify our thinking!

Does this mean I cannot use the app for free anymore?
Yes! From June 1st you will have to get a subscription to use Auxy in a meaningful way.
What if I have purchased sound packs?
If you bought any of the sound packs in a previous version, you will always have access to these sounds, as well as the original sounds. Regardless of whether you subscribe or not.
