Auxy is one of the better beat-making apps currently on the market. Created to work with the iPad, it aims to replace spreadsheet music making in order to simplify the process and make it more fun. Although created for electronic music in particular, beat-making apps such as Auxy ensures that the composition are full of robust and quality sounds.
Stuart Dredge of The Guardian writes, "The more you explore it, the more flexibility you’ll find, from expanding your loops from one to four bars, and playing around with the sounds to find the squonk or wub you’ve been looking for." Like similar beat-making apps, Auxy can also record as it goes, allowing people to build layers of sounds to create a complete piece. This track can then be shared via email.
