It’s tough being a music artist these days. It’s hard work and it’s competitive. That’s why we’re always pleased to hear about anything which can make life easier, especially for new artists. With this in mind, UK-based, music tech startup, Aux, has announced its beta launch and aims to help artists take the next step in their careers.
The desktop app kicks off with a strong offering. Aux allows users to upload music files at high speeds (and supports artists with 10GB free storage), whether works-in-progress or final bounce-downs, backing them up securely ready to share with others. In Aux, users can create projects to manage their files. These projects can be 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. Whatever your project needs, from indie labels, to recording studios, to pressing plants, to record stores, the Aux Guide can provide direction and industry contacts, as well as a collection of all Aux user profiles for potential collaboration. Further artist support is provided via Connect, Aux’s music industry blog, which offers advice, opinion and insights from experienced writers and creators.
Aux is being developed by music tech entrepreneur, Ben Bowler (Chew.tv, Indie), who 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 is looking for early adopters to sign up and help shape the direction and development of the app, so all you creative musician types should get in there now.
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.
