Artists Can Upload, Sync, Collaborate And Connect With Aux App Beta Launch


UK-based, music tech startup, Aux, has announced its beta launch and is looking for early adopters to sign up and help shape the direction and development of the app. Currently available as a desktop app, Aux aims to pull open the gates to the music industry and help artists further their careers, providing them with tools to securely backup music files, sync files and collaborate. It also lets artists access invaluable music industry contacts via the hand-curated Aux Guide.

Those who sign up will get immediate access to upload speeds double that of WeTransfer and a huge 10GB of storage for free.

The Aux open roadmap includes cutting-edge AI technology to upskill artists by providing recommendations for collaborators, industry specialists, leading labels and publishers, and other industry contacts. It also includes plans to introduce native support for multi-track Ableton and Logic files, and a feature-packed mobile app. The beta launch will gather Aux community feedback to help develop this existing roadmap.

Whether works-in-progress or final bounce-downs, Aux backs them up securely ready to share with others. Users can create projects to manage their files, setting them to private, or shared and synced with trusted collaborators. Within Aux, users can take the next step to boost their career and connect with over 300 music businesses around the UK via the Guide, from indie labels, to recording studios, to pressing plants, to record stores. It also provides a collection of all Aux user profiles for potential collaboration. Further artist support comes via Connect, Aux’s music industry blog, which offers advice, opinion and insights from experienced writers and creators.

Aux aims to help artists take the next steps in their career

Aux has been developed by music tech entrepreneur, Ben Bowler, an experienced startup founder and developer. He built, launched, and sold, DJ live streaming platform Chew.tv which grew to a community of over 500k members. Then, as a digital nomad, he developed a series of startups while cycling around the world, leading to the launch of Indie Tech Ltd – a startup studio building software for music, media and gaming. On the development and beta launch of Aux, Ben comments,

“There is a huge wave of artists, from new talent to seasoned musicians,  who aren’t able to reach their potential in a crowded market. Aux will upskill them and get them where they want to be in their career with AI-driven, customised introductions and recommendations targeted to their music genre as well as their current production skills.”

Aux will launch with Free, Basic, Pro, VIP, and Teams versions, offering storage from 10GB to 10TB, access to the Aux Guide (3 entries per month to unlimited) with monthly fees ranging from £9 / €10 / $11 for the Basic version to £45 / €50 / $55 for the VIP version. Sign up at www.aux.app.
