For Tony Aubin (1924–1990), big band vocalist with the Earle Spencer Orchestra, see Toni Aubin.

Tony Louis Alexandre Aubin (8 December 1907 in Paris – 21 September 1981 in Paris) was a French composer.

From 1925 to 1930 Aubin studied at the Paris Conservatory under Samuel Rousseau (music theory), Noel Gallon (counterpoint), Philippe Gaubert (orchestration and composition), and Paul Dukas (composition). He was awarded the Prix de Rome for the cantata Actaeon in 1930. He was artistic director at Paris Mondial from 1937-1944, and professor at the Paris Conservatory from 1944 to 1977. He also conducted works for French radio between 1945 and 1960. His works, heavily indebted to the impressionism of Ravel and Dukas, include a large number of film scores.

His pupils included Olivier Alain, Garbis Aprikian, Raynald Arseneault, Jocelyne Binet, Jacques Castérède, Pierre Cochereau, Marius Constant, Ginette Keller, Talivaldis Kenins, Yüksel Koptagel, Ron Nelson and Makoto Shinohara. See: List of music students by teacher: A to F#Tony Aubin.
