Ok, so I got a new phone. On my old phone I had the exclusive pack, and I have the same account for the App Store on this phone. How do I get the pass back, because it refuses to renew purchases.
I love this app!

The controls are so easy and efficient! You can make great music with this app!

It’s a great app but
by Liquid_Stranger on 2021/11/29 04:10
I recently gave in and bought the membership so I could have the extra sounds, loops n what not. The only problem is they won’t install after I click download all on a pack. I have enough storage on my phone for them to install so I’m not quite sure what the problem is. Thanks for your time anyways awesome app.
This game is very good if you love music it is so cool
by hi im marlee on 2021/11/28 21:39
Nice
I really hope creators see this...
by redbird1998 on 2021/11/28 17:54
Now you’re probably thinking, since I gave this app a 1 star, you’re probably thinking I hate it. No... I don’t . I think this app is ok, I mean, it’s REALLY hard for me to make music.. but for the most part... it’s kinda decent. But that’s not the reason I’m giving this a 1 star. It’s because of a completely different reason. So sometime In 2014 or 2015.... an app called Auxy arrived . This app, is... absolutely awesome. Today, it has over 10,000 sounds, easy making, and power. This app is truely by far the best music app in the world. Then, sometime in 2016, Medly arrives. This app.. umm... is more popular than Auxy????? It is LITERALLY A TOTAL COPY!!! ...Sorry I’m over exaggerating. But the fact how you completely copy an app and it has more than 10 times the reviews, and more downloads, and not even as many songs?!? It’s like 3,000 here on Medly, on Auxy it’s more than 10,000. Ya’ll are no where close! And it’s not as powerful, and the blue way looks worse, and it’s not easy, and so much more negativity I could go into! You literally TOOK the hexagon which is like the settings button for songs. No matter how many updates and change you put into this app, my 1 star will never change. You u stole what Auxy had, and you can’t take that back. If anyone is reading this before they get the app, please get Auxy instead. Then you can get this and you’ll realize how bad Medly is. Well, that’s over. If you actually did read all this then I hope you’ll get Auxy instead. I worked really hard on this review to tell you that Auxy needs way more popularity. I can’t believe it doesn’t even have that much. So thanks for reading all this. And I hope you understand. 😉
Awesome

I tried to download garage band but it didn’t work and this is better than it will ever be 5 stars Ps. I made a bunch of cool beats already
Really good music maker, but I need some help.
by NotherGuyOTI on 2021/11/25 12:35
Just a quick question, how do I cancel a subscription soon? Just asking until I can do it again, in which, I will say that this is truly one of the best music makers out there, which it is, but I just need some help canceling that subscription. Have a nice day developers, people, and otherworldly beings reading this.
Fantastic Platform
by AlyssaizBeast on 2021/11/23 06:11
Love medley, been a user for a few years. I pay annually for the membership and it is always worth it to me. They started adding on packs sometime through my time with them, so you’re always getting more and more variety. Only issue I have had recently is that audio clips intermittently just will not upload. I get past the screen where you choose your BPM, Key, Major/Minor etc.. and hit import, and nothing will show up in the slot. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn’t. It says that it works for samples up to 30 seconds and all of mine I have this issue with are 5-25 seconds. Otherwise, it’s a pretty in depth music software in the palm of your hand, I recommend to anyone who is interested in creating as a fun hobby, but not want to spend a fortune on DAW, MIDI, etc ..
One simple and probably expensive request.
by HazoHazard on 2021/11/21 02:40
Yes I’ve heard medly is expensive to make but I wanna be able to make custom instruments with sound font files, that would be very useful, For example Songs for fnf, more intense songs (from my experience intense songs are hard to make) funny songs made out of weird sounds etc. overall the app is great! Easy to use, fun to use! Like bruh even my 4 year old cousin can make banger songs by just writing his name with the tiles things or spamming them or somthin. The custom instruments will probably be so helpful for a ton of people. I’m thinking you should use sound fonts to make the custom instruments that would be neat. Thank you.
Literally all the good stuff are members only
by Jojostarbucks811 on 2021/11/18 20:01
Sure, Medly is good, but all I can do is the starter pack. Every. Single. Good. Group of instruments are members only. And, it’s SUPER EXPENSIVE! It would be a great help if there were more packs for free without a membership. Please reply ASAP.
Very good

Soo good i love fnf so this will help me for a mod i might make for it and this help me with the voices
i really wanna make an FNF song with this app
by Mr. NeonYt on 2021/11/04 01:59
listen: i love your music app. the problem is that i can’t put FNF (aka friday night funkin) Character vocals in the app. so hear me out: let there be access to put FNF vocals in the app. i know the people reading this is think: man this person is stupid! they may be right. i just think it’s a good idea Mr. NeonYT - 2021
Amazing I made a song called new girl

I love it I made a song called new girl
Genuinely great music-making.
by S0uthbound on 2021/11/02 12:12
This is a great app for making songs WITHOUT having to deal with all the itty bitty settings to make it sound good. The equalization is amazing, and virtually any song you make can sound good. It has a very basic starter pack, but it does the job. The price for membership is not overpriced in the slightest, especially when the extra sounds are very good. I make a song with say… beepbox. Anyone I show it to is mildly impressed. I make a song with Medly and it sounds professional and people stare in awe. Love this app. It’s so worth it.
AMAZING just one question
by ShadowyGirlPlays on 2021/10/30 15:56
This app is amazing just very little stuff in the starter BUT I HAVE A QUESTION can you buy just singular packs and how?

Compatibility on a Computer and laptop

Can you guys please make this great app compatible on a laptop or computer?
Great App; some suggestions
by Zachary E. on 2021/10/28 00:39
This app is amazing. As someone who is currently saving up for a pc and does not have access to things like FL studio, this is a life-saver. The $5 membership is cheap, instruments are high quality, and it's incredibly easy to mix your tracks. I have little to no complaints about this app, but i have some suggestions that would improve this app even more. 1. Psystyle Pack 2. Hardcore/Frenchcore pack 3. lower and higher octaves for certain instruments 4. Kawaii Future Bass Pack
How do you delete packs?

Add these things
by Nitrogen-Tri-Iodide on 2021/10/24 00:49
- More bell instruments - Temp automation, like the volume automation but for speed - Make all instruments sound same volume dispite compression - A menu that highlight notes that aren't part of a chord in selected channels; check for mismatched notes

Best app ever. (Almost)
by oboy gthaytc on 2021/10/17 12:39
I love this app because there’s a game I like called FNF. With your squeak sound from the essentials pack, I can create songs for it. Now, here’s why I wrote almost. I love the different variety but it’s missing the feature to add your own sounds. That’s all, I’m just saying that in a future update, it would be nice to have the feature of your own sounds.
App is great

GET THIS APP NOW !!!!
by 17salty on 2021/10/13 13:57
I'm a total beginner to writing music and this app makes it super easy. I figured out all the functions and features of the app after a few hours of poking around, and once you are familiar with how the app is set up, there are no problems. I have recently found some inspiration to create music and it is so satisfying to see it all come together. I love how easy it is to move sections around and copy and paste things all over. And the member subscription is amazing it's not expensive and you get a LOT of instruments to play around with. Best $5.99 I've ever spent. And you don't even need to pay for the app to make an epic song. The free version has the basic instruments, and I was able to come up with something cool with just the starter pack. Best part is that none of the features (aside from extra instrument packs) are blocked by a paywall. I have had a few problems with the audio though. When I try to import my vocals into the app, it changes the key and kinda auto tunes the vocals. There's no way to disable it (that I'm aware of) so I have to record any voice parts directly into medly which can be annoying since the app crashes a lot when I add audio. Maybe that's just my phone (iphone 7) though. Either way, it makes this process tedious. I wish there was a way to hear the track while you're recording vocals. It would make the singing and recording process easier if I could hear the song in my headphones while I sing the lyrics. I do love all the loops and sounds that this app comes pre-loaded with. There are all sorts of cymbal crashes and sweeping sounds and the best part is you can tweak everything and customize it for your project. Everything from changing the pitch to adding echos and reverb can be done to any audio you put into the song, and it's super easy. There are no limitations!!! Overall, I don't have any complaints. Love the app, and I am super impressed by what I've been able to create using it. I never thought I'd be able to write a song all by myself, but I was thanks to medly ❤️❤️
Used to be Great
by Esurk1074 on 2021/10/10 04:50
It’s oversimplified in the most complicated way now. Not only are we not even given the option to buy a single pack for like $35 (a year’s worth of subscription), but placing notes is so cumbersome now. Before, you could tap and drag a note to make a long one. Now you have to place it then tap a specific spot to make it longer. Not to mention the interface is a jumbled mess. Come on Medly, we get that you’re a small team but how hard is it to give us what we want without overdoing yourselves to the point where using the app is just annoying? I just want the Halloween pack’s instruments but I have to pay $35 every year to gain access to them. How is that fair?
Premium not working
by advocateforintegrity on 2021/10/04 01:06
Upgraded to premium but still can’t record or import anything longer than 30 seconds. App support link in the Apple store goes to a 404 error page. Brilliant. Will be deleting this app.
Good but...
by wesmiling on 2021/10/02 16:59
Right now I am making a song that requires 6 beats. Can you add more beats please? It’s SO annoying to make a 6 beat song that doesn’t sound choppy. Thanks, top hat.

I Like This App beacuz I was Stuck with Piano To Make Music But Apoliges… Money. But I like This App Beacuz Also I can have Loops, And Create My own, Too. But Also I like your app, so thanks for this app.
Amazing! buuut...
by Chikinnuggetqueen on 2021/09/25 19:31
This app is amazing! it lets you make music for free and is just so good overall! But for some reason..well i made a copy of a song i made to change the beat and whenever i (try) to play it the game crashes. i dont know if this has happened to anyone else or just me but if there is anyway to fix it please do! i just wanna change my beat. ;w; Thanks! :D
Great app, bad update
by Deeeeerrrrrrrk on 2021/09/24 18:02
Medley is fun and simple to use with more than enough instruments to write and enjoy your very own music. Handbook within provides answers to any questions about using the app just the way you like. Very robust app. Edit: no longer a functional free music writing app. Ruined by update.
Good but one complaint
by Mr.randomreveiwer. on 2021/09/22 00:44
Good have free version, don’t now if there’s a pack to buy all the instruments. Easy to learn and use. One criticism I have is I wish they made it so you can edit the next section but still see the past one. Don’t know the word for it. Sorry if it’s confusing but I would like it fixed.
Fun
by GreatAzu on 2021/09/20 14:22
So, all of my reviews keep escaping from the queue, so I will make another one. This is happening because I rate after I post the reviews. Hello! It’s me again! This is my #1 favorite app. Better than Auxy, better than Magix, better than GarageBand, and better than everything else. Welcome to Medly 6. (insert everything I said in the previous reviews here) Okay bye Edit: Actually, there is a bug. It happens when I tell the listener “thanks for listening” and all that stuff. The audio is delayed 2 bars, and I hope you fix it in version 6.2 Thank you

It’s good but there’s just one thing
by marvioii on 2021/09/12 20:36
I think it would be cool if you could have an account or something, like when you buy the premium or just make music it will be tied to your account and if something happened to your device you could just log into you account on another one and everything will be saved, (this happened to me and ngl it really hurt)
Best thing ever but..
by wowerNothing on 2021/09/06 23:06
It’s amazing but I hate how my recordings are only like 5 seconds can you pleeeaaasse make them longer! A longer recording for free would probraly most likelyyyy up my review by a star or so…
Good music app
by sam,king of squirells on 2021/09/02 21:14
Been making music for a while, guitar instruments need more variety but it’s still very good, my only complaint would be that it should be a one time purchase thing instead of a monthly thing but I’m no app developer so I don’t know if that’s reasonable or not
Medley please read!!!!
by Jake 268470428944 on 2021/09/01 00:29
I have been using Medley to make my music for more than a year now and i can say that I am thoroughly impressed, the packs of instruments you can use are all wonderful, I love the drag and drop style of it, but there’s just a few things I wish were a little bit better. I wish there were more rap/trap/hip hop style packs or sounds, me personally I make beats and a wider variety of high hats, bass, and sound effects would be amazing. The other thing I wish was slightly better is the ability to input your own sounds/music/samples into the track you’re working on straight from your phone, it already works pretty well, but I’ve discovered that if you are trying to use this app to make a remix of something it doesn’t quite work as well, when you input a sample 30 seconds long And expand it across the track, there will be a slight audio glitch whenever the line passes into a different bar, this makes it difficult and tedious, I have to alter how my sample sounds just to cover up the glitch, if you could please fix this I will love you forever
Suggestion
by Luigi#1⭐️⭐️⭐️ on 2021/08/30 02:10
Try getting rid of the “are you sure?” Menu every time you delete a section. There’s no reason for that to appear every time because if you make a mistake you can literally just tap the undo button.
I love this app
by LDCommando on 2021/08/22 18:16
Medly does everything it promises to do. The sounds are high quality and there are a lot of possibilities. The main things I want to see in future updates is a Swing slider and the ability to place notes off-grid for more natural sounding instruments like guitars or pianos.
Good
by DemiurgicGlitch on 2021/08/22 05:33
This app is easy to use, clean, gets constant updates. Very cool. The only thing i think is kinda sucky is the membership. I mean, I get it, but some people don’t want to buy a year to get the $3 a month. I think the membership plan needs to be rethought a little bit if you want a broader audience. To me, this app is great for people who are really into music and are making it all the time. This isn’t really an app for people who like to fiddle around or only would use the app seriously once or twice a month. The membership would just be a waste of money at that point. However, changing the membership might not be as profitable so, I can see why it is the way it is.
Reverse feature
by ED Gigan on 2021/08/22 02:14
The app is good so far, but what I could use is a reverse playing feature on some of my songs. (backwards) It would be a nice feature to be able to create a different and alternate sounding backwards tune.
Not as good as fl studio
by Keila1347 on 2021/08/21 02:09
I can’t make a boyfriend voice in there, the app itself was a childhood game for me, but it’s not as good as FL studio because you can’t pitch, reverb, and nothing else but just use those instruments as templates to play music notes. Can’t we have the access to make our own instruments instead of template instruments??? If you don’t update, i will have tp switch to FL studio later afterwards.
Please respond

by Socroc10 on 2021/08/14 22:47
How do you change time signatures? Some songs I want to make use 3 over four time, but I can’t make them on the app because I don’t know how to change the time signature to 4 over 4.

This app has been so fun to use! If you are looking to learn how to make music this is a great app to use. I am just a kid but I still know how to use it because it gives you tips on how to make music along the journey. I absolutely love this app I totally recommend!
Pay To Play
by Local host on 2021/08/04 18:50
I wanted to simply play around with the sounds in this game to try to put together a song for a project I’ve been working on. But unless you pay for the subscription you can only have access to their “beginner” set of instruments and sound tools ( basically your average chip tune playlist). And I was thinking that I might be able to use other tools in the app then just these. I deleted shortly after downloading. And will not redownload. Would not recommend to anyone.
There’s a problem with the new update
by NeonGreenKing on 2021/08/03 22:16
So, the new way to swipe to different bars of your song is to use the dots at the top of the screen. This is pretty useful if you don’t want to manually swipe and swipe to get to the part you want to edit. However, I wish I still had the option to manually swipe. If I do that now, it goes all the way to four bars later. I don’t have access to edit certain notes and it feels really annoying and clunky. Wish I could visually show you what I’m talking about, but I don’t think there’s a way to do that on here. As of right now, I can’t use your app the same anymore. Hope this gets resolved soon ✌️ Edit: Ok, I don’t know if you guys did anything or not, but I’m not having that issue anymore. I was going to send a video to you guys explaining everything, but there wouldn’t be anything to show. All I can say is thanks!!
Glitches
by PS4Kitten on 2021/07/31 21:27
This app is fine but there is a glitch. In a song I was making, there is a glitch. In the second column, the audio is three beats late. How does that happen?
I loved the app before the 6.0 update
by magikiper809 on 2021/07/29 18:06
The app is amazing but with the new update changed some things that were already fine, and it wont even let anyone change how thing are. The app should have an option to change certain things things in the app like: how many fingers to scroll (max 3), the way the notes work, note options, ability to change the speed of certain parts of the song, adding your own instruments (im not talking about audio or recording a video), or even just choosing what version you could be on for the bare minimum, etc. its a great app don't get me wrong here i bought the membership its just that version 6.0 kinda ruined it for me. You should at-least be able to change what version you are on.

Sound sampling capabilities please?
by Kyle Woestrum jr. on 2021/07/25 16:47
I was wondering if it would be possible to add sound sampling, where you could create sounds for low, medium, and high registers and then use it in a song? This is a great app, but the instrumental sounds are not very good, to put it lightly.
Newest updates
by A disappointed player :T on 2021/07/25 09:38
The newest update made it harder to control the interface. Every time I tried sliding to the right to add patterns for the 2/4 of the loop it just took me to the next 1/4 loop without letting me go back to the one I was working on. I needed to manually exit that loop just to go back to the previous one. And although I could press the top to switch sections of the same loop segment it’s much comfortable being able to slide within it. Until the newest update made it a little frustrating. Sometimes when I think I was able to slide it I just ended up grabbing one of the patterns I placed and moving it on accident. so now I have to make sure not to grab them when I want to slide. so if I use to many patterns on the 1/4 it’ll be me trying to grab between them just to slide slightly onto the 2/4 of it. In all honestly I preferred the old interface than the new one.
It’s okay-
by Chula Ipod on 2021/07/25 08:31
As a child (11) I completely understand you are trying to make money. But my parents aren’t banks. So I simply can not go up to them constantly saying to buy this and that EVERYTHING in this app you basically need to buy everything:/. and don’t get me wrong it’s a good up but still just no thank you-

No complaints
by shaggymf on 2021/07/14 14:11
I don’t have any complaints really only I wish I could change the pitch of things or whatever like how you can change the volume except higher or lower the pitch on longer notes. Also the low power audio cut out thing can be annoying sometime and even when I have full battery sometimes the beginning of sounds are silent. But other than that this app is really fun and EASY to use. - The update added exactly what I wanted I’m pretty hype about it it’s perfect now I love it ❤️
Great

Perfect and more
by yeetery mc giggity on 2021/07/13 19:26
Not only have I been using the free version for years but I’m going to get the full app. It’s amazing and the sounds don’t sound like a dumb video game like most free apps. Can’t wait to see what more is on the full version
Great but two suggestions!
by Camron Ross on 2021/07/12 23:21
1. Maybe instead of a membership, make a currency! The currency can be earned by completing a quest or making a song! You can use the currency on sounds and features! The only other way to get more is buying it with real money! Dragon City, Monster Legends, and My Singing Monsters do this and get BILLIONS of dollars! I’m a kid so I don’t have $35. 2. The electric guitar is AWFUL. Instead of sound like a rock guitar, it sounds like a DISTORTED BANJO! 3. Other than that it’s an amazing app! 😁😁😁
So the new controls are very touchy
by Huge Man Fredd on 2021/07/11 17:47
I like it how their is a lot of new ways to toggle the notes, but it seems like making the notes longer is a nightmare now. You have to touch them in a very specific spot.
Eh, it’s decent

Can there be a way to change to the old controls and UI?
by Eldtrainboy on 2021/07/06 18:15
Hi! I’ve been using Medly for about 2 or so years, and I have gotten really use to the old controls and Ui. Once the new update rolled around and change all of it, I felt out of the loop. I can’t make music as easily as before, as I have gotten used to the old controls, and the notes are so much tinier, so it’s even harder for me. Is there a way you could add an option to toggle between new and old controls and ui? Thank you.
No log-in

Pointless to use this app It’s COMPLETELY restrictive for working on an in-depth song let alone a 4 bar segment... 0/10 0/10 0/10
Ummm hello?

I LOVEEEE THIS APP but one bad thing I don’t wanna become member like life is not all making money life is a happy place so if you put free memeber ship plss delete the member ship and give the people’s money back thank you:(
Crashes way too much!
by FunnyBoy 45 on 2021/07/01 14:01
I would like to give this app 5 stars but I can’t. I get Auxy is similar and as much as I wish that app would allow vocals in there, you can’t add any. It is why I tried to find a similar app to Auxy and when I stumbled across this app, I thought great. Another app similar to Auxy but better since this app allows you to add vocals, right? Wrong. This app is worse. Despite being able to add vocals every time I try and work on a song and I get into a minute into the song the app begins to crash. Every time I try and re-open my project it just crashes. I really hope this app can get a major stability fix. Keep in mind I am using this app on an iPhone 11 so my phone should be able to support and run this app without a problem. Hope the developers read this and instead of working on more instrument packs work on getting this app fixed first. Then maybe I’ll re consider my review and download this app again.
Very Fun

Medly is Epic
by Jman is my Clash Royale name on 2021/06/29 03:32
First of all, I love this app. It is simple, and although it is slightly annoying premium is pretty expensive (I mean, not really compared to other stuff, the Nintendo Switch is $300), remember that (from what I’ve read of Dev. Responses) Medly is a small community. I am awaiting the huge June Update :). Secondly, they give you enough instruments to make pretty decent music. I mean, I use other music apps, but this is by far the most user friendly and allows you to get creative. Happy music making! :) :)

Starting to get frustrated
by Mohamed Salah man! #L.F.C on 2021/06/21 13:45
Ok, so Medly is my go to app when it comes to music, but here is why it doesn’t get the full five stars. I waited a long time after melodic dubstep came out to get lantern. I wasn’t crazy about that pack so when it said on the App Store “we aren’t taking a break, we’re just working on something big” for a sound pack, I was so excited. They said it would come out in June so the clock IS ticking. Besides, the member exclusive pack promises a new pack about every month which is down right a lie. So there are a few things that are frustrating me right now but overall I still do enjoy medly
What
by grummpy cat on 2021/06/20 22:57
I like the game. I would legit rate it 5 if it wasn’t so greedy. All mobile games have this “premium” thing I’ve seen it everywhere mobile games are getting worse. I can’t afford premium I’ve got other things to do and I don’t know how to spend my money yet. So I was pretty disappointed when I found out my favorite genre, dubstep, was premium only. So yeah legit most of the things in this are premium. I would recommend only if u like wasting cash.
Yes but the rating...
by -n- -n- -n- -n- on 2020/03/26 03:44
I do really really really (yes, in Chinese old scholars say that important thing should be told three times) like Medly and already have composed songs even better than my old composition Raining Roof (the improved compositions are Rainy Day, Rendezvous, and Change respectively). However I’d like the price to no longer be free but Member no longer required. You can say the price - $5.99 and even more people just will get past the MONEY barrier and you get profits better than just...before now. Say, do you know my second dream in my mind? I’d like a free, open-source Notes app replacing Medly (and free - but, people do make instruments as a donation.) And I looked at other reviews saying that a gifted teenager could make Medly. Just stop there, you could trust me for new Medly stuff. (Personally, I’d replace the Starter electronic pack with a better Electron, with the Aura (now named Electron) being the lead.) But I’d do the ripping out since my actual status is close to yours, just three years behind. The Notes ... it looks like Apple .... but maybe I would lead in the E-field later on. Oh, and the musics are not just a rip-off of Gallop. Just to make this rating appear as the most relevant of all, so people can get in the Compositionist school. Yes, the Compositionist Axis Rebellion of Music (opponents: Medly, Auxy, MusiQuest). And there are so much parentheses.
apologies
by freakbag🛒🛒🛒🛒🛒 on 2020/08/07 05:52
my apologies for trying to understand your business, although i still am saying i recommended 2$ not just 75c, i do not understand completely these things since i am a child ( I'm 13). i wont argue the price anymore but i still think you guys were very rude to me and others but my rating is going to be 4 stars still. thank you for responding to my previous reviews and i wish you guys good luck previous response : you see this app is really good, i don't write reviews unless i have something i really want to say so ill just get to the point. i truly love this app and making music is so easy, but i don't agree with a subscription. i understand that the app must be expensive to produce and i appreciate that but... i think that you should give us more than one pack, even two would be good? and make the rest of the packs purchaseable for around maybe 75c-2$?? that way people can choose what sounds they want to use without worrying about a charge every month. some people don't have the money to pay each month, so i really hope my idea is looked into at least a bit, since personally i am only interested in having a few packs anyways, so if i got the subscription i would be spending a ton of money for things i don't really need. thank you for your time but i still do really enjoy this app, just not the starter pack being extremely limited and there being a ton of other packs i have to pay each month for.
Complaint
by XXIMOOGAN on 2019/05/06 20:28
Sorry to bother I but I like this app but why do we have to pay to use loops I don’t think really like that many people may not like it too sir you created a great app but the only thing that you should only change is being able to get the loops for free to create some great songs many people would like and download this app it’s perfect just change it to the loops being free take that being a member thing there’s also people that don’t have credit cards or money like me but with this app I can make money I can create many great projects for my Tucson rappers please bro just do that one thing for 7 billion people all around the world think how many people with download this if you do if free just like the app music maker jam or garage band their competition if you just take off the member request many rappers and singers or producers will keep installing it that benifits you because you created something very useful why take money for it if it can be useful so your next invention will be liked because of the first application made was so good know people trust your great creations that benifits you well
Sound focused, not development focused.
by ɱ ɑɳɗ ɱ ɱʋʂꀤƈ on 2021/04/05 06:00
I use Medley more than anything else. It’s easy to build melodies and bass lines without hassle, pretty accurately, and it’s easy to get these files onto my phone to send them away so I can use them in a bigger song. That’s what Medley is: A small app where you can create little music samples to send off to your bigger projects on your laptop or so on (or that’s how I see it). However, that’s not what Medley could be. There is so much potential here.. more ways to mix audio, built in vocaloid plugins (better than the current ‘Vox’ or whatever it’s called). Packs of instruments that can go together, better tutorials for beginners, so on. Trust me, this is a great app, but I think it’s too focused on simplicity.. which I know that sounds like a good thing, but simplicity really affects professionalism, especially in this circumstance. If Medley was able to integrate more types of mixing, more realistic instrument sounds rather than just a bunch of random synth and electric sounds that can kinds sound the same and nothing fits, and other little things that make it more professional, the community as well as Medley would benefit from that. Also, prices are fine. And there’s little bugs and freezes here and there and sometimes recordings of songs come out quiet but overall, so good.
Great, Except...
by NathaFred on 2019/08/25 14:30
Hey! This is an amazing app. Well designed, clean, professional. But the only thing I dislike about it is that it is expensive. Hear me out, because I am not recommending that it be free. As a hobbyist I don’t have the money to buy a membership, but having the extra samples are kind of a must if you want to make songs with variety. What if in the free version it played an ad every time you added a premium instrument to a song. It would be like renting the instrument with an ad. You wouldn’t unlock the instrument universally, only for that song. It would keep the free version restricted while allowing hobbyists to make more with the app. It would generate income from all users instead of the few that buy a Membership. It would still give plenty of incentive to buy the pro version. This is a brilliant app and I want it to keep progressing. I think it would be beneficial to both users and developer. Just an idea, Cheers! P.S It would also be cool if deleted songs went to a temporary trash. This is a relatively standard feature in many media creation applications. (Or you could just put a couple extra messages telling people not to be idiots, like me, and delete songs they want :D)
Medly, thank u👍🏽
by ✨ForeverGirl✨ on 2018/12/30 03:53
I just got Medly not too long ago, looking for a new music maker and I found Medly, and I gave it a shot. This is probably the BEST music maker I ever used. I love how the controls are so easy, most packs are cheap, and that more sounds are available in the free pack, making easier to make a song without buying everything. Even if i did buy the Future Bass pack, it’s worth it and so cheap. Im probably soon gonna buy the master pack. Out of all the music apps I’ve used, especially Auxy studio, this is the best one. Keep up the good work plz🔥 Edit: Ok, the new update is ok, but a problem. The Master and Band packs used to cost about $9.99 (or around $9) and now, I can’t buy a pack individually anymore because you apparently gotta buy some sort of trial. It was better and easier for me when I could just buy a pack on its own and have it forever instead of buying a trial including ALL instruments for a LIMITED amount of time. Im just suggesting that maybe instead of having just the option of a trial, you can get the packs by themselves OR get the trial. Overall still a good app 😆
Lovely, but a Bug and some Suggestions
by unicrafticorn on 2019/08/28 23:06
This app is nice. The new update is alright, though I particularly preferred new packs as in-app purchases over membership (of course, I understand that’s how you guys make money). But recently the app’s been doing something weird: when I play something and turn my phone off, the parts come out all choppy, some not playing at all. Sometimes this leads to the app crashing. If it’s important, I do use Low Power Mode often. I’d appreciate if this were patched. Other than that, Medly is great for beginning musicians; after warming up to it, it’s relatively easy to create tunes. A question I’d like to ask is if new packs as outside of membership will be released, but I’d assume not if you’re plan is to release one membership pack a month. If you could, I’d love for the rock pack to have a dirtier guitar, or have the guitars play for an extended period of time at a consistent intensity. It would also be nice to have a “note” function that you can attach to bars if you want to fix/edit something in the future. It could also be different kinds of stamps. Overall, great app, love to use it :)
Great for any level of experience
by Corn Matters on 2018/12/17 01:00
The app is really intuitive and easy to learn regardless of your experience with digital audio interfaces. It’s great for beginners to get started with simple music production, and for the more advanced people out there you can still put together some really great sounding stuff in a variety of genres. It’s amazing when I have an idea on the go and I only have a few minutes to quickly get down some chords, a melody, and even record some lyrics. If you’re new to the app, it’s definitely worth looking into the yearly membership. If you’re like me though and you’ve already purchased the packs and you only want one new one, it’s up to you to decide if that’s worth a subscription. I think I speak for lot of dedicated Medly fans when I say that I would love to still be able to purchase individual packs separately from the membership subscription, but either way it definitely won’t stop me from continuing to use my favorite app.
Medley please read!!!!
by Jake 268470428944 on 2021/09/01 00:29
I have been using Medley to make my music for more than a year now and i can say that I am thoroughly impressed, the packs of instruments you can use are all wonderful, I love the drag and drop style of it, but there’s just a few things I wish were a little bit better. I wish there were more rap/trap/hip hop style packs or sounds, me personally I make beats and a wider variety of high hats, bass, and sound effects would be amazing. The other thing I wish was slightly better is the ability to input your own sounds/music/samples into the track you’re working on straight from your phone, it already works pretty well, but I’ve discovered that if you are trying to use this app to make a remix of something it doesn’t quite work as well, when you input a sample 30 seconds long And expand it across the track, there will be a slight audio glitch whenever the line passes into a different bar, this makes it difficult and tedious, I have to alter how my sample sounds just to cover up the glitch, if you could please fix this I will love you forever
10/10 UI & general app but new genres packs are lacking
by ValkyriiVail on 2017/10/30 12:25
I love this app! Making music was a passion I set aside ever since my explosive break up with GarageBand. Thanks to Medly, I can start mixing tunes no matter where I am, easily and efficiently. As a developer, It’s rare for me to come across a REAL public use app (rather than design mock ups or $$$$ apps I don’t need) that’s UI/UX is inspirational. I myself aim to create applications that are as clean cut, easy to use and that actually runs smoothly! #devboss #killedit With that said, my only and I really mean only wish is that new genre packs would be available soon!!! The ones we have now are hella rad and I can use all of them for some decent tunes. Yet! The available packs can only go so far since I mostly listens to future bass, trap, dubstep, bass and many electronic dance styles that are, in four words, face melting musical carnage. I weep about the fact there’s not a lot of options for me to play with. I’m sure your working on it! I will wait patiently with eager hope for some new packs that are more my style. Otherwise, keep up the spectacular work and I can’t wait to see what’s coming next!
Superb App
by YOURTRUSTYFRIEND on 2020/10/24 00:40
I love this app! I’m a piano composer, but I travel quite a bit, and I can’t lug my piano around everywhere. That’s why I use this app. I can log down different notation patterns I like the sound of on the app, and then try them out on my piano when I get home. I love how real the piano sounds are! I had a bit of trouble understanding the app design and how to log in notes at first, but they give handy step-by-steps for how to use many parts of the app, which is spectacular. I still very much prefer physical instruments to this, but I think that’s because I’ve never been an ace with technology—😂. The friend of mine who recommended this app to me uses it to make beats, which just goes to show it is easy to be used for many different people. I could only possibly think of one thing to complain about—which is just that it would be cool if you could lower the cost of a membership. I did try it for a month and loved that I could mess around with violin and saxophone sounds, but I really just would like if it could be a tad cheaper for a yearly subscription. I won’t be ungrateful, though, this is much more of a steal than most apps offer for premium—and just flat out better, too. Thanks for the great app! You guys rock! 😊👍
There’s a problem with the new update
by NeonGreenKing on 2021/08/03 22:16
So, the new way to swipe to different bars of your song is to use the dots at the top of the screen. This is pretty useful if you don’t want to manually swipe and swipe to get to the part you want to edit. However, I wish I still had the option to manually swipe. If I do that now, it goes all the way to four bars later. I don’t have access to edit certain notes and it feels really annoying and clunky. Wish I could visually show you what I’m talking about, but I don’t think there’s a way to do that on here. As of right now, I can’t use your app the same anymore. Hope this gets resolved soon ✌️ Edit: Ok, I don’t know if you guys did anything or not, but I’m not having that issue anymore. I was going to send a video to you guys explaining everything, but there wouldn’t be anything to show. All I can say is thanks!!
Really Good
by A.P.W.Cool guy on 2019/07/07 21:37
I’ve been reading some of the reviews about how “this should be free” or “why do you have to be member to get that”, but the response is plain and simple, Medly is a small company that needs funding to continue future operations. Now that that’s out of the way, here’s why I gave this app 4 stars. I get that you do need money, but I feel like at least one instrument pack should be free, I completely understand the reasoning if you are not able to, I just feel limited. The free trials of packs is a really good idea and I feel that listening to what is possible makes me want to be a member, but I just like to make little tracks so I’m not looking to purchase anything. In conclusion, I know I kinda sound like a choosing beggar but I feel there should be two starting packs. Now, I don’t know what all goes into making the instrument sounds, or how much it costs, so that also might be a factor in why the member option is important, but I hope you see where I’m coming from.
Great way to get people inspired to create
by SmiteMatter on 2019/08/30 20:29
First I want to say that the complaints about wanting free or much cheaper add ons are ignorant at best. The app didn’t just plop out of the sky without any investment or work done by the developer. Who do they think spends time making the loops, or coding the app, independently wealthy altruists with nothing but free time on their hands? No of course not. Real living humans do all the work and deserve to be compensated for their efforts. Asking them to work for free is just silly and a little insulting. Try walking into a burger joint and asking them for free food because you can’t or don’t want to pay for it. Same silly thing. Anyway, great looping app that reminds me a bit of Looptastic from iOS past. This is a well thought out app that is excellent for those who are new to music production to explore some creative avenues at a super low cost. I think even some vets with more experience may find this useful as well or at least a bit fun.
Dissatisfied
by Lolpooooooop on 2018/08/14 02:01
I have purchased the Jazz pack, and I am disappointed. I wanted to purchase the pack because I wanted to write out some of the pieces from my previous year in my schools band. The reason I am dissatisfied is because the range for the instruments doesn’t change at all. I was hoping for there to be an option for me to change the octave of the instruments, as I played the Baritone Saxophone. But there wasn’t. I had used the Low A (two ledger lines below the staff) numerous amounts of times and was sad that I couldn’t change it. I don’t want to just move up my music an octave because I’m lazy.... lol. This paragraph has basically just been a persuasive ‘essay’ for you to add an option to lower the octave range. Another hint I would like to mention is that the Gb and G for the Baritone Saxophone sound weird when put on the octave above the lowest F. Thank you for seeing this if you ever do, because I love this app and want to see it succeed.
This app is great, don’t question it.
by Tell_me_your_joking on 2018/12/16 06:17
I was expecting more instruments, of course (the ones there have been out for a long time), but I was not expecting a monthly subscription. I’ve been using this app for a long time because it didn’t have a subscription, I could just buy it and make songs on the go easily. I love the app always but this is not what I expected nor wanted and I’d think a lot of people using this app agree on this. Please take this into consideration. Also, there have been some things that have ticked me of before this. The overlay feature where you could see the notes of other instruments while editing was so useful back then so could you ever consider bringing it back? If you can’t I can understand. Edit: For people who have bought the packs before the update, you will not have to have a subscription for it. It will be kept. For the newcomers and new packs however, you will have to subscribe fir that. Hope that clears the air.
Amazing app but membership isn’t necessary
by challenk on 2019/02/05 22:13
This app is the greatest things of my life. I love all of it. Every single piece of it. The way the app works easy and simple to learn and use. And the amount of sound bites to use is plenty and they all sound amazing. My favorite pack is Master! But, sadly I can’t not use it. See, ones you download the app, the pack you start with is the starter and to get any more packs, you have to pay money. Now I would be fine with this if you could retrieve these packs by being given an option to buy as an in-app purchase or as an add-on in the App Store, but nope. I have to pay for a membership. Let’s just list some possible Scenarios that could happen: “1. I’m too young and I don’t have a credit card. 2. I don’t want to add my credit card to my phone cause someone could hack it. 3. I can’t pay for that.” Can guys please change the way I got to pay. Thxs!
Almost perfect
by Lynkster2101 on 2020/02/17 19:42
This app I stumbled upon quite a while ago (think December), and almost immediately upgraded to member. For a price such as almost 25 dollars a YEAR (more or less, I don’t remember exactly), you can get amazing, quality instruments to make music as you wish. But as I continue to make music, one thing keeps nagging me: the inability to change the time signature. All songs and beats you make are required to stick to the common 4/4 time. But sometimes, I might want to make a song that feels Waltz-ier, and want to go for a 3/4 signature, or maybe I want to just go crazy and challenge myself with a 5/4 time signature. I see how implementing this COULD be difficult, but I don’t see why it couldn’t be done. I’ll definitely keep using this amazing program, but if it were to add time signature changes, I would give it a full 5 stars.
Very nice, but...
by Naruto318 on 2018/12/26 15:13
This app seemed confusing at first but eventually you get used to how to use it. I like all of the different options there are (changing how loud a note is, being able to hear a note before placing it, being able to change the key of the piece, etc.) However, these are some things I’d like added: 1.) Crescendos and diminuendos. Being able to change the note’s loudness is helpful, but being able to have more steady dynamics where it’s very gradual is better. It’d be cool if we could just place this feature under the group of notes we want the crescendo or diminuendo to affect. 2.) The way we have to pay monthly or yearly for other features. I dislike having to pay in that way; I’d rather pay a base fee instead of each month or year having expenses for the app. So please add a bass fee option where we can just flat out pay the expenses for other features and get the payment over and done with.
Love the app but one suggestion
by MiaCongrez216 on 2019/01/30 19:17
I’ve been using this app for quite a while and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT ^~^ I’ve recreated music from Mario Galaxy, Hamilton, and some of the music from orchestra but I have a suggestion, is there any way in a future update an option can be added to change the time signature? Since this app can be used basically anywhere with ease I put in the notes for some of my music so I can listen to only my part since I mostly play by ear but a few pieces are a different time signature or some of the other music I transpose are a different time signature and this app only has 4/4 “^~^ or even to change the time signatures in an individual measure, I’m not really in a hurry or anything for it, it’s just a suggestion ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Anyways, this is my favorite music app to use; it’s fun to use and I love showing people the stuff I make on here and they love listening to it! ^~^👍🏼❤️
An AMAZING APP!!!!!!!!!
by supershan30 on 2018/09/16 04:15
I’ve tried almost every single music making app on the App Store and nothing comes CLOSE to Medly. I play the piano and the violin and have experience with making music of my own, however making music that way is very time consuming and not very efficient, and not many people who want to make music can play instruments I have several friends like this, BUT with Medly, anyone can! Plus, buying all the different sound packs (like I did) is well worth the money you would spend buying them. Its simple and easy to make music with and I’ve created entire 2-4 minuet songs (that includes all the re editing and even re doing the entire song itself) in a matter of minutes. So I guess the easiest thing to say about Medly is that it’s PERFECT for any kind of person and you shouldn’t waist your time searching for a better music making app. -Tristan Garrison
AMAZING!!

I LOVE THIS APP! I have been using this app since the for at least 2+ years, and I've recieved nothing but excellent quality per every update. However this app lacks a lot of common instruments as well as a suggestion box where one could suggest new instruments and features. I would love to see more basic instruments including a vibraphone, tube bells, more acoustic guitars, more pianos (with more range), a standard drum set, a brush drum set, and more. Some of us love modern music, but at the same time, some of us would like to use common instruments. I'm sure people have improvised but that doesn't have the same feel as a classic instrument. I hope this comment can be heard (or read). Overall this is an amazing app and is very easy to understand. The UI is easy to understand after trial and errors. I'd recommend this app to all.
Love this app, here’s my suggestions.
by Alexando on 2020/10/06 13:52
I use this app regularly and love it. There’s a few things I’ve noticed that I’d like to suggest in case the devs read and consider these reviews. 1. I’d love a wider variety of “darker” sounds, particularly for the guitars. Everything is really upbeat and happy sounding, which isn’t bad (it suits most of the EDM stuff this was designed for pretty well) but I feel as if it could benefit from a broader emotional spectrum. A “metal” and/or a “blues” setting that’s similar to the “rock” setting might be appropriate there. 2. IMHO the pizzicato violin is the worst sound in the sets, I’ve been trying to use it but it’s kind of cringe which is unfortunate since I’ve liked the rest of the classical set. 3. A way to do glissando would be really nice and might not clutter up the UI too much if done well, such as with a tap and hold setting on a series of notes. Similarly, a way to do really short notes such as grace notes or ornamentals would also add a lot to the app. I was imagining this might work with a UI if you tap and hold a short note that precedes another note. 4. More time signature options wouldn’t hurt, although you can always just force them by writing it in manually, it wouldn’t hurt to have more coded options.
Wonderful

Now before you roll your eyes hear me out. Some may find Medly annoying because you only have one pack without a membership but to me it’s worth it. The membership is a bit pricy (I’m not rich duh) but It’s worth it if you know what you’re doing (Unlike me 😂). You can create wonderful pieces or just simple ring tones. From Intros to background music the possibilities are endless. I would compare this to Minecraft. Pretty good if you are creative and will keep trying to find a solution. If you like me are un experienced the free version is great just to see where you can go with it. I do feel the one moth price is expensive and I think 3.99 or 2.99 would be much more decent, but I understand that the developers need money for the addition of new packs. TL:DR: Free version is great for beginners experimenting and paid is pretty good for intermediate music makers.
Pretty Awesome...but...why?
by Jshcljgjgokufoydiyfludoy on 2018/12/15 19:53
Look, I get that with the new subscription variable, you can receive a whole new pack monthly (which is pretty cool) but AT LEAST give us the arcade and Christmas packs WITHOUT THE SUBSCRIPTION. I’ve been using this app for, a very long time. Loved it, and I still do. But never in my mind did I think that you guys would throw this in our faces. I mean CMON! You seriously can’t get the best out of EVEN YOUR FAVORITE APPS without some kind of purchase. And it had to be my favorite type of sounds, arcade. I’m super disappointed and dissatisfied, but I still have hope in this app as long as you guys stop bribing us to get a subscription with ARCADE SOUNDS. Couldn’t have been anything else huh? Oh well, I hope this gets resolved and I will Continue to stick with this awesome app (as long as they don’t chuck a “SUPER DELUXE EXTRA AMZING SPECTACULAR” subscription at us.) Thank you.

Hey Medlylabs! I just want to say that this app is amazing and I pretty much use it everyday. For the price, the amount of content you have is fantastic and I couldn't ask for more. There's just a few questions I have about some instruments. Firstly, the guitars. The guitars in the rock pack are pretty cool, but they seem to only last as long as a single pluck. Like, you can't extend the sound for more than one beat or so. Why is that? It used to be different some years ago but you guys changed it before I could buy it. I'd really love to use the guitar instruments (because a lot of the songs I cover are pop rock and need guitars) but I can't use them the way they are now. Is there any way you can change them or make a new pack? Secondly, the violin, cello, and bass instruments lag by half a beat. Could you remove the lag? It’s sort of irritating because it doesn’t flow. Thank for reading this!
Amazing app, a few suggestions.
by Dpilly_ThePickle on 2020/02/05 03:55
Medly is an amazing app that I have been using for a while now. I love the direct export to soundcloud and other places and the simple and easy way to make music. I have a few suggestions though. One is a community. You could upload your albums/songs to a community area so other people can see your Medly music. People could like and comment on music they like. Another suggestion is some kind of point system. This could be based off likes on your song in the community. Basically, a certain amount of points can buy other instruments while others will stay member only to give you a reason to get a membership. Thank you for reading my suggestions, and I hope you take them into consideration in the next update.
Love The App, just one thing missing
by -Frostwall- on 2020/12/16 05:54
I’ve been using medley for two years now, and used Member for one year, and made some amazing songs with the app! Great place to start out with music, especially if you don’t have money. The one thing I wish could be added was a way to make your own sounds, like a wavetable inspired by the serum plugin for computer programs or something, while keeping the existing sounds, some as presets, some as member exclusive sounds not possible with the sound designer, to keep making money through to keep updating the app, and keeping people in music. I’m not completely freaking out over it since I have no idea how hard that is, andirons can live without it, but if it’s at all possible for a small company, at least try. Thanks! Keep up the great work!
For Those Who Love Making The Music
by Austinpire on 2017/11/20 02:25
Okay, I want to start out by saying you do NOT need to buy any of the in app purchases in order to make awesome tunes. Everything you need to start with is already there, but if you want to go advance or fine tune your music, I would suggest getting the band pack. Second, the app is EXTREMELY easy to get the hang of, even if you buy the band pack. I’m usually slow in “getting to know” apps, but this came as easy for me. Third, I have no problems with the app in terms of glitching or crashing, other than the times where I make everything extremely loud, which causes the app to either make it staticky or crash, but this is only due to the fact that I tried making it INCREDIBLY loud. This app is simple, easy, but the things you can make on it is incredible.
It’s good for beginners and casuals! Get Auxy Studio too.
by Vj starr on 2019/07/30 16:20
This app is just not a great app for me. It’s not my main DAW but I use it every once in a while for fun. The method of viewing scenes is restricting: You can’t easily have the same loops in multiple scenes, because the copy-paste can become tiresome. Medly features 10 or so instruments for free, and honestly, the selection is decent but the sample quality is a little lacking for professional use. If you are serious about music making, try Auxy in addition to Medly. It has customizable high pass and low pass settings, reverb, flexible delay settings, customizable drum kits, equalizer, and attack/release controls. These features would greatly improve Medly. Thats why I’m only rating this app 3 stars, because it’s not really for me. For now, Auxy is my choice for professional mobile music making. While Medly is not something I use often, it’s worth a try if you’re a casual user.
Not the best tool, but probably the best app.
by Stephen the Zealot on 2021/04/23 20:23
There are certainly better programs in terms of composition if you have a computer, but this is an excellent choice if you’re limited to an iPhone. The app has some interesting options packed in, but the fact that you have to pay such an expensive, monthly fee really holds it back. The instruments offered for free are way too limiting and are only barely serviceable. However, the paid instruments, while a bit of a mixed bag at times, lean more towards a rich and varied sound palette. Overall, it will help you as a beginner in finding interesting harmonies and crafting unique melodies, and it will also help in providing a very intuitive interface, but it will limit you in the long run if you get too comfortable with it. Make it a supplement, rather than your primary means of composition.
Crashes way too much!
by FunnyBoy 45 on 2021/07/01 14:01
I would like to give this app 5 stars but I can’t. I get Auxy is similar and as much as I wish that app would allow vocals in there, you can’t add any. It is why I tried to find a similar app to Auxy and when I stumbled across this app, I thought great. Another app similar to Auxy but better since this app allows you to add vocals, right? Wrong. This app is worse. Despite being able to add vocals every time I try and work on a song and I get into a minute into the song the app begins to crash. Every time I try and re-open my project it just crashes. I really hope this app can get a major stability fix. Keep in mind I am using this app on an iPhone 11 so my phone should be able to support and run this app without a problem. Hope the developers read this and instead of working on more instrument packs work on getting this app fixed first. Then maybe I’ll re consider my review and download this app again.
Absolutely LOVE this app but just one thing...
by Eellee on 2018/09/03 21:09
I’ve played around with garage band for a while now and it never provided me with the SOUND I was looking for. I don’t know how but I came across this app and I am SOOO glad I did. I was looking for something to make raw examples of tracks with but that sounded decent enough that wouldn’t embarrass me when I show my examples to producers. A way to get the songs in my head out of my head. But garage band wasn’t cutting it for me. I love this app! I went ahead and unlocked everything cuz I love it so much. My ONLY ONLY thing I don’t like is not being able to just record myself in one go over the beats I make. Nor being able to hear the song play while recording at the same time so I know where I’m at in the song. Please please add that feature and this app will be PHENOMENAL. Or at least make so it you don’t have to record by each bar! Anyway GREAT JOB!
Make Some Improvements
by A_G_973 on 2019/06/12 00:39
I think the app is great. There is a large variety of instruments, and there are a lot of options to easily assist with creating a song, such as adjusting the tempo and key. However, I think the app would be better if you add the option to change time signatures. Also, there are only three octaves when you add notes, so I think it would be better if you added some more to increase the pitch range. Lastly, I think it would be pretty cool if you allow users to tie/connect notes into other measures, and add an undo option for mistakes. Overall, I think the app has some really nice features but could definitely use some improvements to make it even better.
New Medly sounds grating and annoying, please fix.
by SkyTiger8 on 2017/11/29 22:48
Everything sounds different with the new update and not in a good way. It sounds so grating and sharp and it’s really annoying. I attempted to fix it by messing with the HiLo option but wasn’t happy with the results. The drums have this effect where everything else gets quiet when one plays. This is something I notice in a lot of modern edm and I kind of hate it!! I herd a a setting called ducker being mentioned but I can still here this effect clearly when ducker is turned all the way down on all the instruments. The bass is also different it sounds deeper which is ok but it’s also kind of muffled, this is a problem because I like to use a bass sound called overdrive as a lead by turning the pitch all the way up and now it sounds kind of muffled. I regret not saving my songs before this update because now they sound weird. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate all the new stuff in Medly but I want my songs to sound like they did before and for new songs I make to not sound too harsh.
Fantastic Platform
by AlyssaizBeast on 2021/11/23 06:11
Love medley, been a user for a few years. I pay annually for the membership and it is always worth it to me. They started adding on packs sometime through my time with them, so you’re always getting more and more variety. Only issue I have had recently is that audio clips intermittently just will not upload. I get past the screen where you choose your BPM, Key, Major/Minor etc.. and hit import, and nothing will show up in the slot. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn’t. It says that it works for samples up to 30 seconds and all of mine I have this issue with are 5-25 seconds. Otherwise, it’s a pretty in depth music software in the palm of your hand, I recommend to anyone who is interested in creating as a fun hobby, but not want to spend a fortune on DAW, MIDI, etc ..
This dev wants you to think you need to pay.
by TheWrittenJazz on 2019/06/21 00:27
Don’t buy anything. They say they have the best free offering on the App Store when there’s apps like audio kit synth one. How can you think yo I have the best free offering lol. Have you (the dev) even used these other apps? Why would you think you need to charge for the ability to loop? Ridiculous lol. I like the app too, I used it and tried the free 7 days, and all that did was reinforce how crazy it is to charge for the things they charge for. Instruments is one thing, simple features like looping is another. If you spend money on this app then that’s unfortunate as you could’ve just bought something actually worth the money like iMaschine or FL Studio if you really want quality. If you want free, audio kit synth one. Dev, you don’t need money the way you say you do, you WANT money. This app could’ve been developed by a high schooler in his free time with all the features for free.
Amazing, but this is a suggestion.
by Creeptank030 on 2018/04/21 14:27
I love it! All the different sounds, all the different ways you can make music, all the combos you can make with the music, it’s just amazing... but there is only one problem with me, and it’s something I want content-wise. I want something like the “8-bit plugin.” Something like the “8-bit plugin” is essential for the music I want to make. I am an Undertale nerd, so I want it. Also, people should be able to upload sounds to use and there is an in-app currency you can buy or earn to get things from the store. This would be marvelous, but these are only suggestions. I think this would make you a tremendous amount more money, and us, as users of the app, would love it. Oh and we should be able to download FLPs, too. This would be awesome.
Amazing app. Just some suggestions.
by RyanmanOH3 on 2018/10/09 01:30
Hey Medly creators. Just writing this review to give some ideas for future updates. This app is amazing for people to use, it’s simple, useful, and runs fantastically. The ideas I had for newer updates was for integration of different time signatures. So far we have 4/4 and 3/4 with triplets. But in the future I want to be able to have it so I can make a 5/4 song with ease. As well as keys using /8 like 7/8 and 6/8. Another feature is tempo changes. I want to be able to change the tempo so I can have a beginning of a song be 90 bpm but then later I want it to be 120 bpm. These would be tremendous upgrades to an already phenomenal app and I hope to hear some feedback/see these features added in the future.
Newest updates
by A disappointed player :T on 2021/07/25 09:38
The newest update made it harder to control the interface. Every time I tried sliding to the right to add patterns for the 2/4 of the loop it just took me to the next 1/4 loop without letting me go back to the one I was working on. I needed to manually exit that loop just to go back to the previous one. And although I could press the top to switch sections of the same loop segment it’s much comfortable being able to slide within it. Until the newest update made it a little frustrating. Sometimes when I think I was able to slide it I just ended up grabbing one of the patterns I placed and moving it on accident. so now I have to make sure not to grab them when I want to slide. so if I use to many patterns on the 1/4 it’ll be me trying to grab between them just to slide slightly onto the 2/4 of it. In all honestly I preferred the old interface than the new one.
Great MIDI Sequencer
by Piefayth on 2018/11/08 20:43
This is EXACTLY the kind of app I was looking for, and I’m thrilled I found it. Medly has all the power that your note roll in your favorite DAW does, but with none of the extra visual noise - the interface is gorgeously simple. It even undersells itself at first; the demos make little use of the automation feature, which allows you to dynamically modify effects like volume, pitch, and reverb on a note by note basis. I’ll include my personal grievances below, but I refuse to give this great app less than five stars. The developers clearly care about creating a quality product. - The only drums in the default instrument pack are basically non-viable. Too high pitched and tinny for a good drum sound. I would honestly prefer synthesized drums from some old console chip. Luckily it sounds like there are better drums in the instrument packs. - No support for VST instruments. I haven’t purchased the ability to do imports yet, but based on the listed supported file types, this is a no-go. Understandable, but creating a proper full instrument from recordings alone is a complete nightmare. It would be a massive boon to have some kind of digital synthesizer support. - No undo button?!
It’s great but limited
by Simp1e_Gämër on 2020/12/01 16:47
I just want to start off by saying, this app is not bad. It’s really fun to just play with and helpful to use if ever making music. I’m glad that they don’t use ads at all and it gives things to start out with to help you learn it. But after a while I got pretty bored using the same one starter pack, so I wanted to use more. But the problem with that is there is a ton of great packs that I could’ve used, but can’t since it’s pretty pricey. I feel like there should be more packs that are free to help it be more interesting other than the app begging for me to pay for more. Once again I respect that it doesn’t use ads but instead of ads it begs for you to pay for the other packs. Love the app, it’s fun to use, but I’m only giving three stars because one starter pack only gets you so far.
8/10 not bad
by my name jeffffff on 2020/11/09 03:39
There’s not much to complain. The prices are fair. I don’t see why people are complaining for a free app. It’s not like they charge you every time you open the app. What they’ve made is much cheaper than fl studio. The app is easy to use. You can basically take it anywhere it’s much better than all the music apps you can get. Some cost more than this. So if you want to become a future producer you should first think of prices. This is one of the cheaper ones so don’t complain about the money it’s better if you try a different app if you can’t afford it. Don’t try and haggle an app that doesn’t get as much money as all those apps that insert a 30 second video after you click on an instrument. Or take advantage of the free trial.
Issues With Imported Audio
by Kat Bogd on 2020/06/07 20:38
There is a wide range of instruments & they are fun to arrange, as well as to adjust volume, echo, reverb, etc. and the gradual progression of those through automation. Theoretically, this is a great app and the monthly subscription fee is very reasonable. However: 2) My biggest concern is the audio import feature - the fact that it is limited to only 30 seconds in length, and furthermore even if you do only have 30 seconds, it makes a weird jump in audio when split into 2 parts (even if you click continue from previous section) is very inconvenient. Having the ability to import continuous audio that flows seamlessly across sections, and goes for a longer period of time, would be enormously helpful. 1) There are also issues with some of the higher or lower notes on certain instruments, that end up sounding odd; this is a minor problem though, as most of them are fine. I believe that this app could be improved vastly through allowing imports of longer audios, and allowing those audios to be stitched together across sections without interruptions. Potentially, it could also be improved by fixing up the notes on a couple of instruments; but again, this part is minor.
Great app! BUT.......
by Jona111000 on 2019/07/16 02:23
Love this app great way to start making music but my only problem is that you only get a starter loop and every other loop isn’t free so it’s kind of hard to make a different genre of music that requires a different sound or beat:( please make the loops free I could understand why the developers put the other loops for members but if you can make all the loops free that are in the app right now and add more loops that are exclusive so people have to buy the loops not join a membership it would be so much better so just make all the loops free in the app then add new ones you have to BUY thank you Because there are other apps that all the loops are free and they add new ones like every week or so. You the developers would get way more people to download the app
Great in some aspects, good in others
by Axilleast on 2018/10/09 15:53
This app seems like it’s really tailored to a few different genres...I bought all the packs and for me as a metal guitarist it’s somewhat limiting, I can’t manage to double bass drum and change time signature which you’d think would be pretty standard...as it is, I do use it for getting basic rhythms from my head to a tweakable medium and it’s really easy and nice to use. They’ve done a great job with everything, I just feel it’s an update or two away from being incredible. Instead of looking for more instruments or whatever to add next, try including the ability to change meters after a segment...and if these are options I haven’t discovered, then really consider a manual that covers all these nuances please! ...but seriously, really great job on the programming thus far.
Great app! Slightly upset... Please change this!
by Caiden 1111 on 2018/12/15 05:00
Don’t get me wrong. I love this app and make loads of tracks on it that I enjoy. It is easy to pick up and learn, and once you become good, you can make seemingly professional tracks. My only issue is that I used to love the fact that you can purchase different sound packs separately. With the new membership program makes it feel like a license to keep the instruments that you pay for rather than actually owning them if you get what I mean. Hopefully there can be a way to add both ways of obtaining a pack of sounds for users who don’t want to jump right into the membership. Me and many others are really looking for a change to revert back to the old ways of obtaining new sounds. I hope you understand where I’m coming from with this, and that something can be done soon! Thanks for reading!!
Suggestion
by N1000and1 on 2019/06/12 15:27
Is there a way that you could set up a system as to where people could vote for the monthly pack genre? Don't get me wrong I love the app and the variety of instruments, but the sounds do have a similarity issue. Too similar. A Tropical House Pack after already have a Dancehall Pack isn't the best idea to me (Especially since Dancehall is the biggest one). When you have many versions of basically the same sound, it started to feel oversaturated. If your team were to release a genre like Synthwave or Alternative/Indie, that would be amazing Other that little thing, the app is amazing, easy-to-use, and fun. I've used it since near the beginning and it has only gotten better.🤩🤘👏
Many things!
by iBH1806 on 2018/05/22 01:07
First off, the email for support. They reply usually within 1 minute-30 minutes. This is awesome because if you need help, they’re right there and are able to assist quickly. Also, the possibilities of making music are pretty much endless. It can be slightly hard because of rhythms, but after a while, you will get the hang of it. But, I will be dropping it a star because the only type of music that is free is the starter. It’s handy for a while, until all of the sounds sound so boring. There are other packs, but they cost 3 dollars each, and 10 dollars for larger packs (multiple smaller ones inside). I know the apps need to make money, but it shouldn’t be 3 dollars for a pack of classic instruments. Other than that, great app and staff helping with the app! =)

Ok, so I got a new phone. On my old phone I had the exclusive pack, and I have the same account for the App Store on this phone. How do I get the pass back, because it refuses to renew purchases.
I love this app!

It’s a great app but
by Liquid_Stranger on 2021/11/29 04:10
I recently gave in and bought the membership so I could have the extra sounds, loops n what not. The only problem is they won’t install after I click download all on a pack. I have enough storage on my phone for them to install so I’m not quite sure what the problem is. Thanks for your time anyways awesome app.
This game is very good if you love music it is so cool

Nice
I really hope creators see this...
by redbird1998 on 2021/11/28 17:54
Now you’re probably thinking, since I gave this app a 1 star, you’re probably thinking I hate it. No... I don’t . I think this app is ok, I mean, it’s REALLY hard for me to make music.. but for the most part... it’s kinda decent. But that’s not the reason I’m giving this a 1 star. It’s because of a completely different reason. So sometime In 2014 or 2015.... an app called Auxy arrived . This app, is... absolutely awesome. Today, it has over 10,000 sounds, easy making, and power. This app is truely by far the best music app in the world. Then, sometime in 2016, Medly arrives. This app.. umm... is more popular than Auxy????? It is LITERALLY A TOTAL COPY!!! ...Sorry I’m over exaggerating. But the fact how you completely copy an app and it has more than 10 times the reviews, and more downloads, and not even as many songs?!? It’s like 3,000 here on Medly, on Auxy it’s more than 10,000. Ya’ll are no where close! And it’s not as powerful, and the blue way looks worse, and it’s not easy, and so much more negativity I could go into! You literally TOOK the hexagon which is like the settings button for songs. No matter how many updates and change you put into this app, my 1 star will never change. You u stole what Auxy had, and you can’t take that back. If anyone is reading this before they get the app, please get Auxy instead. Then you can get this and you’ll realize how bad Medly is. Well, that’s over. If you actually did read all this then I hope you’ll get Auxy instead. I worked really hard on this review to tell you that Auxy needs way more popularity. I can’t believe it doesn’t even have that much. So thanks for reading all this. And I hope you understand. 😉
Awesome

I tried to download garage band but it didn’t work and this is better than it will ever be 5 stars Ps. I made a bunch of cool beats already
Really good music maker, but I need some help.
by NotherGuyOTI on 2021/11/25 12:35
Just a quick question, how do I cancel a subscription soon? Just asking until I can do it again, in which, I will say that this is truly one of the best music makers out there, which it is, but I just need some help canceling that subscription. Have a nice day developers, people, and otherworldly beings reading this.
Fantastic Platform
by AlyssaizBeast on 2021/11/23 06:11
Love medley, been a user for a few years. I pay annually for the membership and it is always worth it to me. They started adding on packs sometime through my time with them, so you’re always getting more and more variety. Only issue I have had recently is that audio clips intermittently just will not upload. I get past the screen where you choose your BPM, Key, Major/Minor etc.. and hit import, and nothing will show up in the slot. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn’t. It says that it works for samples up to 30 seconds and all of mine I have this issue with are 5-25 seconds. Otherwise, it’s a pretty in depth music software in the palm of your hand, I recommend to anyone who is interested in creating as a fun hobby, but not want to spend a fortune on DAW, MIDI, etc ..
One simple and probably expensive request.
by HazoHazard on 2021/11/21 02:40
Yes I’ve heard medly is expensive to make but I wanna be able to make custom instruments with sound font files, that would be very useful, For example Songs for fnf, more intense songs (from my experience intense songs are hard to make) funny songs made out of weird sounds etc. overall the app is great! Easy to use, fun to use! Like bruh even my 4 year old cousin can make banger songs by just writing his name with the tiles things or spamming them or somthin. The custom instruments will probably be so helpful for a ton of people. I’m thinking you should use sound fonts to make the custom instruments that would be neat. Thank you.
Literally all the good stuff are members only
by Jojostarbucks811 on 2021/11/18 20:01
Sure, Medly is good, but all I can do is the starter pack. Every. Single. Good. Group of instruments are members only. And, it’s SUPER EXPENSIVE! It would be a great help if there were more packs for free without a membership. Please reply ASAP.
Very good

i really wanna make an FNF song with this app
by Mr. NeonYt on 2021/11/04 01:59
listen: i love your music app. the problem is that i can’t put FNF (aka friday night funkin) Character vocals in the app. so hear me out: let there be access to put FNF vocals in the app. i know the people reading this is think: man this person is stupid! they may be right. i just think it’s a good idea Mr. NeonYT - 2021

Genuinely great music-making.
by S0uthbound on 2021/11/02 12:12
This is a great app for making songs WITHOUT having to deal with all the itty bitty settings to make it sound good. The equalization is amazing, and virtually any song you make can sound good. It has a very basic starter pack, but it does the job. The price for membership is not overpriced in the slightest, especially when the extra sounds are very good. I make a song with say… beepbox. Anyone I show it to is mildly impressed. I make a song with Medly and it sounds professional and people stare in awe. Love this app. It’s so worth it.
AMAZING just one question
by ShadowyGirlPlays on 2021/10/30 15:56
This app is amazing just very little stuff in the starter BUT I HAVE A QUESTION can you buy just singular packs and how?

Great App; some suggestions
by Zachary E. on 2021/10/28 00:39
This app is amazing. As someone who is currently saving up for a pc and does not have access to things like FL studio, this is a life-saver. The $5 membership is cheap, instruments are high quality, and it's incredibly easy to mix your tracks. I have little to no complaints about this app, but i have some suggestions that would improve this app even more. 1. Psystyle Pack 2. Hardcore/Frenchcore pack 3. lower and higher octaves for certain instruments 4. Kawaii Future Bass Pack
How do you delete packs?

Add these things
by Nitrogen-Tri-Iodide on 2021/10/24 00:49
- More bell instruments - Temp automation, like the volume automation but for speed - Make all instruments sound same volume dispite compression - A menu that highlight notes that aren't part of a chord in selected channels; check for mismatched notes

Best app ever. (Almost)
by oboy gthaytc on 2021/10/17 12:39
I love this app because there’s a game I like called FNF. With your squeak sound from the essentials pack, I can create songs for it. Now, here’s why I wrote almost. I love the different variety but it’s missing the feature to add your own sounds. That’s all, I’m just saying that in a future update, it would be nice to have the feature of your own sounds.
App is great

GET THIS APP NOW !!!!
by 17salty on 2021/10/13 13:57
I'm a total beginner to writing music and this app makes it super easy. I figured out all the functions and features of the app after a few hours of poking around, and once you are familiar with how the app is set up, there are no problems. I have recently found some inspiration to create music and it is so satisfying to see it all come together. I love how easy it is to move sections around and copy and paste things all over. And the member subscription is amazing it's not expensive and you get a LOT of instruments to play around with. Best $5.99 I've ever spent. And you don't even need to pay for the app to make an epic song. The free version has the basic instruments, and I was able to come up with something cool with just the starter pack. Best part is that none of the features (aside from extra instrument packs) are blocked by a paywall. I have had a few problems with the audio though. When I try to import my vocals into the app, it changes the key and kinda auto tunes the vocals. There's no way to disable it (that I'm aware of) so I have to record any voice parts directly into medly which can be annoying since the app crashes a lot when I add audio. Maybe that's just my phone (iphone 7) though. Either way, it makes this process tedious. I wish there was a way to hear the track while you're recording vocals. It would make the singing and recording process easier if I could hear the song in my headphones while I sing the lyrics. I do love all the loops and sounds that this app comes pre-loaded with. There are all sorts of cymbal crashes and sweeping sounds and the best part is you can tweak everything and customize it for your project. Everything from changing the pitch to adding echos and reverb can be done to any audio you put into the song, and it's super easy. There are no limitations!!! Overall, I don't have any complaints. Love the app, and I am super impressed by what I've been able to create using it. I never thought I'd be able to write a song all by myself, but I was thanks to medly ❤️❤️
Used to be Great
by Esurk1074 on 2021/10/10 04:50
It’s oversimplified in the most complicated way now. Not only are we not even given the option to buy a single pack for like $35 (a year’s worth of subscription), but placing notes is so cumbersome now. Before, you could tap and drag a note to make a long one. Now you have to place it then tap a specific spot to make it longer. Not to mention the interface is a jumbled mess. Come on Medly, we get that you’re a small team but how hard is it to give us what we want without overdoing yourselves to the point where using the app is just annoying? I just want the Halloween pack’s instruments but I have to pay $35 every year to gain access to them. How is that fair?
Premium not working
by advocateforintegrity on 2021/10/04 01:06
Upgraded to premium but still can’t record or import anything longer than 30 seconds. App support link in the Apple store goes to a 404 error page. Brilliant. Will be deleting this app.
Good but...
by wesmiling on 2021/10/02 16:59

This app is amazing! it lets you make music for free and is just so good overall! But for some reason..well i made a copy of a song i made to change the beat and whenever i (try) to play it the game crashes. i dont know if this has happened to anyone else or just me but if there is anyway to fix it please do! i just wanna change my beat. ;w; Thanks! :D
Great app, bad update
by Deeeeerrrrrrrk on 2021/09/24 18:02
Medley is fun and simple to use with more than enough instruments to write and enjoy your very own music. Handbook within provides answers to any questions about using the app just the way you like. Very robust app. Edit: no longer a functional free music writing app. Ruined by update.
Good but one complaint
by Mr.randomreveiwer. on 2021/09/22 00:44
Good have free version, don’t now if there’s a pack to buy all the instruments. Easy to learn and use. One criticism I have is I wish they made it so you can edit the next section but still see the past one. Don’t know the word for it. Sorry if it’s confusing but I would like it fixed.
Fun
by GreatAzu on 2021/09/20 14:22
So, all of my reviews keep escaping from the queue, so I will make another one. This is happening because I rate after I post the reviews. Hello! It’s me again! This is my #1 favorite app. Better than Auxy, better than Magix, better than GarageBand, and better than everything else. Welcome to Medly 6. (insert everything I said in the previous reviews here) Okay bye Edit: Actually, there is a bug. It happens when I tell the listener “thanks for listening” and all that stuff. The audio is delayed 2 bars, and I hope you fix it in version 6.2 Thank you

It’s good but there’s just one thing
by marvioii on 2021/09/12 20:36
I think it would be cool if you could have an account or something, like when you buy the premium or just make music it will be tied to your account and if something happened to your device you could just log into you account on another one and everything will be saved, (this happened to me and ngl it really hurt)
Best thing ever but..
by wowerNothing on 2021/09/06 23:06
It’s amazing but I hate how my recordings are only like 5 seconds can you pleeeaaasse make them longer! A longer recording for free would probraly most likelyyyy up my review by a star or so…
Good music app
by sam,king of squirells on 2021/09/02 21:14
Been making music for a while, guitar instruments need more variety but it’s still very good, my only complaint would be that it should be a one time purchase thing instead of a monthly thing but I’m no app developer so I don’t know if that’s reasonable or not
Medley please read!!!!
by Jake 268470428944 on 2021/09/01 00:29
I have been using Medley to make my music for more than a year now and i can say that I am thoroughly impressed, the packs of instruments you can use are all wonderful, I love the drag and drop style of it, but there’s just a few things I wish were a little bit better. I wish there were more rap/trap/hip hop style packs or sounds, me personally I make beats and a wider variety of high hats, bass, and sound effects would be amazing. The other thing I wish was slightly better is the ability to input your own sounds/music/samples into the track you’re working on straight from your phone, it already works pretty well, but I’ve discovered that if you are trying to use this app to make a remix of something it doesn’t quite work as well, when you input a sample 30 seconds long And expand it across the track, there will be a slight audio glitch whenever the line passes into a different bar, this makes it difficult and tedious, I have to alter how my sample sounds just to cover up the glitch, if you could please fix this I will love you forever
Suggestion
by Luigi#1⭐️⭐️⭐️ on 2021/08/30 02:10
Try getting rid of the “are you sure?” Menu every time you delete a section. There’s no reason for that to appear every time because if you make a mistake you can literally just tap the undo button.
I love this app
by LDCommando on 2021/08/22 18:16
Medly does everything it promises to do. The sounds are high quality and there are a lot of possibilities. The main things I want to see in future updates is a Swing slider and the ability to place notes off-grid for more natural sounding instruments like guitars or pianos.
Good
by DemiurgicGlitch on 2021/08/22 05:33
This app is easy to use, clean, gets constant updates. Very cool. The only thing i think is kinda sucky is the membership. I mean, I get it, but some people don’t want to buy a year to get the $3 a month. I think the membership plan needs to be rethought a little bit if you want a broader audience. To me, this app is great for people who are really into music and are making it all the time. This isn’t really an app for people who like to fiddle around or only would use the app seriously once or twice a month. The membership would just be a waste of money at that point. However, changing the membership might not be as profitable so, I can see why it is the way it is.
Reverse feature
by ED Gigan on 2021/08/22 02:14
The app is good so far, but what I could use is a reverse playing feature on some of my songs. (backwards) It would be a nice feature to be able to create a different and alternate sounding backwards tune.
Not as good as fl studio
by Keila1347 on 2021/08/21 02:09
I can’t make a boyfriend voice in there, the app itself was a childhood game for me, but it’s not as good as FL studio because you can’t pitch, reverb, and nothing else but just use those instruments as templates to play music notes. Can’t we have the access to make our own instruments instead of template instruments??? If you don’t update, i will have tp switch to FL studio later afterwards.
Please respond

by Socroc10 on 2021/08/14 22:47
How do you change time signatures? Some songs I want to make use 3 over four time, but I can’t make them on the app because I don’t know how to change the time signature to 4 over 4.

This app has been so fun to use! If you are looking to learn how to make music this is a great app to use. I am just a kid but I still know how to use it because it gives you tips on how to make music along the journey. I absolutely love this app I totally recommend!
Pay To Play
by Local host on 2021/08/04 18:50
I wanted to simply play around with the sounds in this game to try to put together a song for a project I’ve been working on. But unless you pay for the subscription you can only have access to their “beginner” set of instruments and sound tools ( basically your average chip tune playlist). And I was thinking that I might be able to use other tools in the app then just these. I deleted shortly after downloading. And will not redownload. Would not recommend to anyone.
There’s a problem with the new update
by NeonGreenKing on 2021/08/03 22:16
So, the new way to swipe to different bars of your song is to use the dots at the top of the screen. This is pretty useful if you don’t want to manually swipe and swipe to get to the part you want to edit. However, I wish I still had the option to manually swipe. If I do that now, it goes all the way to four bars later. I don’t have access to edit certain notes and it feels really annoying and clunky. Wish I could visually show you what I’m talking about, but I don’t think there’s a way to do that on here. As of right now, I can’t use your app the same anymore. Hope this gets resolved soon ✌️ Edit: Ok, I don’t know if you guys did anything or not, but I’m not having that issue anymore. I was going to send a video to you guys explaining everything, but there wouldn’t be anything to show. All I can say is thanks!!
Glitches
by PS4Kitten on 2021/07/31 21:27
This app is fine but there is a glitch. In a song I was making, there is a glitch. In the second column, the audio is three beats late. How does that happen?
I loved the app before the 6.0 update
by magikiper809 on 2021/07/29 18:06
The app is amazing but with the new update changed some things that were already fine, and it wont even let anyone change how thing are. The app should have an option to change certain things things in the app like: how many fingers to scroll (max 3), the way the notes work, note options, ability to change the speed of certain parts of the song, adding your own instruments (im not talking about audio or recording a video), or even just choosing what version you could be on for the bare minimum, etc. its a great app don't get me wrong here i bought the membership its just that version 6.0 kinda ruined it for me. You should at-least be able to change what version you are on.

Sound sampling capabilities please?
by Kyle Woestrum jr. on 2021/07/25 16:47
I was wondering if it would be possible to add sound sampling, where you could create sounds for low, medium, and high registers and then use it in a song? This is a great app, but the instrumental sounds are not very good, to put it lightly.
Newest updates
by A disappointed player :T on 2021/07/25 09:38
The newest update made it harder to control the interface. Every time I tried sliding to the right to add patterns for the 2/4 of the loop it just took me to the next 1/4 loop without letting me go back to the one I was working on. I needed to manually exit that loop just to go back to the previous one. And although I could press the top to switch sections of the same loop segment it’s much comfortable being able to slide within it. Until the newest update made it a little frustrating. Sometimes when I think I was able to slide it I just ended up grabbing one of the patterns I placed and moving it on accident. so now I have to make sure not to grab them when I want to slide. so if I use to many patterns on the 1/4 it’ll be me trying to grab between them just to slide slightly onto the 2/4 of it. In all honestly I preferred the old interface than the new one.
It’s okay-
by Chula Ipod on 2021/07/25 08:31
As a child (11) I completely understand you are trying to make money. But my parents aren’t banks. So I simply can not go up to them constantly saying to buy this and that EVERYTHING in this app you basically need to buy everything:/. and don’t get me wrong it’s a good up but still just no thank you-

by shaggymf on 2021/07/14 14:11
I don’t have any complaints really only I wish I could change the pitch of things or whatever like how you can change the volume except higher or lower the pitch on longer notes. Also the low power audio cut out thing can be annoying sometime and even when I have full battery sometimes the beginning of sounds are silent. But other than that this app is really fun and EASY to use. - The update added exactly what I wanted I’m pretty hype about it it’s perfect now I love it ❤️

Not only have I been using the free version for years but I’m going to get the full app. It’s amazing and the sounds don’t sound like a dumb video game like most free apps. Can’t wait to see what more is on the full version
Great but two suggestions!
by Camron Ross on 2021/07/12 23:21
1. Maybe instead of a membership, make a currency! The currency can be earned by completing a quest or making a song! You can use the currency on sounds and features! The only other way to get more is buying it with real money! Dragon City, Monster Legends, and My Singing Monsters do this and get BILLIONS of dollars! I’m a kid so I don’t have $35. 2. The electric guitar is AWFUL. Instead of sound like a rock guitar, it sounds like a DISTORTED BANJO! 3. Other than that it’s an amazing app! 😁😁😁
So the new controls are very touchy
by Huge Man Fredd on 2021/07/11 17:47
I like it how their is a lot of new ways to toggle the notes, but it seems like making the notes longer is a nightmare now. You have to touch them in a very specific spot.

Can there be a way to change to the old controls and UI?
by Eldtrainboy on 2021/07/06 18:15
Hi! I’ve been using Medly for about 2 or so years, and I have gotten really use to the old controls and Ui. Once the new update rolled around and change all of it, I felt out of the loop. I can’t make music as easily as before, as I have gotten used to the old controls, and the notes are so much tinier, so it’s even harder for me. Is there a way you could add an option to toggle between new and old controls and ui? Thank you.

Pointless to use this app It’s COMPLETELY restrictive for working on an in-depth song let alone a 4 bar segment... 0/10 0/10 0/10
Ummm hello?

Crashes way too much!
by FunnyBoy 45 on 2021/07/01 14:01
I would like to give this app 5 stars but I can’t. I get Auxy is similar and as much as I wish that app would allow vocals in there, you can’t add any. It is why I tried to find a similar app to Auxy and when I stumbled across this app, I thought great. Another app similar to Auxy but better since this app allows you to add vocals, right? Wrong. This app is worse. Despite being able to add vocals every time I try and work on a song and I get into a minute into the song the app begins to crash. Every time I try and re-open my project it just crashes. I really hope this app can get a major stability fix. Keep in mind I am using this app on an iPhone 11 so my phone should be able to support and run this app without a problem. Hope the developers read this and instead of working on more instrument packs work on getting this app fixed first. Then maybe I’ll re consider my review and download this app again.
Very Fun

Medly is Epic

First of all, I love this app. It is simple, and although it is slightly annoying premium is pretty expensive (I mean, not really compared to other stuff, the Nintendo Switch is $300), remember that (from what I’ve read of Dev. Responses) Medly is a small community. I am awaiting the huge June Update :). Secondly, they give you enough instruments to make pretty decent music. I mean, I use other music apps, but this is by far the most user friendly and allows you to get creative. Happy music making! :) :)

Starting to get frustrated
by Mohamed Salah man! #L.F.C on 2021/06/21 13:45
Ok, so Medly is my go to app when it comes to music, but here is why it doesn’t get the full five stars. I waited a long time after melodic dubstep came out to get lantern. I wasn’t crazy about that pack so when it said on the App Store “we aren’t taking a break, we’re just working on something big” for a sound pack, I was so excited. They said it would come out in June so the clock IS ticking. Besides, the member exclusive pack promises a new pack about every month which is down right a lie. So there are a few things that are frustrating me right now but overall I still do enjoy medly
What
by grummpy cat on 2021/06/20 22:57
I like the game. I would legit rate it 5 if it wasn’t so greedy. All mobile games have this “premium” thing I’ve seen it everywhere mobile games are getting worse. I can’t afford premium I’ve got other things to do and I don’t know how to spend my money yet. So I was pretty disappointed when I found out my favorite genre, dubstep, was premium only. So yeah legit most of the things in this are premium. I would recommend only if u like wasting cash.
Yes but the rating...
by -n- -n- -n- -n- on 2020/03/26 03:44
I do really really really (yes, in Chinese old scholars say that important thing should be told three times) like Medly and already have composed songs even better than my old composition Raining Roof (the improved compositions are Rainy Day, Rendezvous, and Change respectively). However I’d like the price to no longer be free but Member no longer required. You can say the price - $5.99 and even more people just will get past the MONEY barrier and you get profits better than just...before now. Say, do you know my second dream in my mind? I’d like a free, open-source Notes app replacing Medly (and free - but, people do make instruments as a donation.) And I looked at other reviews saying that a gifted teenager could make Medly. Just stop there, you could trust me for new Medly stuff. (Personally, I’d replace the Starter electronic pack with a better Electron, with the Aura (now named Electron) being the lead.) But I’d do the ripping out since my actual status is close to yours, just three years behind. The Notes ... it looks like Apple .... but maybe I would lead in the E-field later on. Oh, and the musics are not just a rip-off of Gallop. Just to make this rating appear as the most relevant of all, so people can get in the Compositionist school. Yes, the Compositionist Axis Rebellion of Music (opponents: Medly, Auxy, MusiQuest). And there are so much parentheses.
apologies
by freakbag🛒🛒🛒🛒🛒 on 2020/08/07 05:52
my apologies for trying to understand your business, although i still am saying i recommended 2$ not just 75c, i do not understand completely these things since i am a child ( I'm 13). i wont argue the price anymore but i still think you guys were very rude to me and others but my rating is going to be 4 stars still. thank you for responding to my previous reviews and i wish you guys good luck previous response : you see this app is really good, i don't write reviews unless i have something i really want to say so ill just get to the point. i truly love this app and making music is so easy, but i don't agree with a subscription. i understand that the app must be expensive to produce and i appreciate that but... i think that you should give us more than one pack, even two would be good? and make the rest of the packs purchaseable for around maybe 75c-2$?? that way people can choose what sounds they want to use without worrying about a charge every month. some people don't have the money to pay each month, so i really hope my idea is looked into at least a bit, since personally i am only interested in having a few packs anyways, so if i got the subscription i would be spending a ton of money for things i don't really need. thank you for your time but i still do really enjoy this app, just not the starter pack being extremely limited and there being a ton of other packs i have to pay each month for.
Complaint
by XXIMOOGAN on 2019/05/06 20:28
Sorry to bother I but I like this app but why do we have to pay to use loops I don’t think really like that many people may not like it too sir you created a great app but the only thing that you should only change is being able to get the loops for free to create some great songs many people would like and download this app it’s perfect just change it to the loops being free take that being a member thing there’s also people that don’t have credit cards or money like me but with this app I can make money I can create many great projects for my Tucson rappers please bro just do that one thing for 7 billion people all around the world think how many people with download this if you do if free just like the app music maker jam or garage band their competition if you just take off the member request many rappers and singers or producers will keep installing it that benifits you because you created something very useful why take money for it if it can be useful so your next invention will be liked because of the first application made was so good know people trust your great creations that benifits you well
Sound focused, not development focused.
by ɱ ɑɳɗ ɱ ɱʋʂꀤƈ on 2021/04/05 06:00
I use Medley more than anything else. It’s easy to build melodies and bass lines without hassle, pretty accurately, and it’s easy to get these files onto my phone to send them away so I can use them in a bigger song. That’s what Medley is: A small app where you can create little music samples to send off to your bigger projects on your laptop or so on (or that’s how I see it). However, that’s not what Medley could be. There is so much potential here.. more ways to mix audio, built in vocaloid plugins (better than the current ‘Vox’ or whatever it’s called). Packs of instruments that can go together, better tutorials for beginners, so on. Trust me, this is a great app, but I think it’s too focused on simplicity.. which I know that sounds like a good thing, but simplicity really affects professionalism, especially in this circumstance. If Medley was able to integrate more types of mixing, more realistic instrument sounds rather than just a bunch of random synth and electric sounds that can kinds sound the same and nothing fits, and other little things that make it more professional, the community as well as Medley would benefit from that. Also, prices are fine. And there’s little bugs and freezes here and there and sometimes recordings of songs come out quiet but overall, so good.
Great, Except...
by NathaFred on 2019/08/25 14:30
Hey! This is an amazing app. Well designed, clean, professional. But the only thing I dislike about it is that it is expensive. Hear me out, because I am not recommending that it be free. As a hobbyist I don’t have the money to buy a membership, but having the extra samples are kind of a must if you want to make songs with variety. What if in the free version it played an ad every time you added a premium instrument to a song. It would be like renting the instrument with an ad. You wouldn’t unlock the instrument universally, only for that song. It would keep the free version restricted while allowing hobbyists to make more with the app. It would generate income from all users instead of the few that buy a Membership. It would still give plenty of incentive to buy the pro version. This is a brilliant app and I want it to keep progressing. I think it would be beneficial to both users and developer. Just an idea, Cheers! P.S It would also be cool if deleted songs went to a temporary trash. This is a relatively standard feature in many media creation applications. (Or you could just put a couple extra messages telling people not to be idiots, like me, and delete songs they want :D)
Medly, thank u👍🏽
by ✨ForeverGirl✨ on 2018/12/30 03:53
I just got Medly not too long ago, looking for a new music maker and I found Medly, and I gave it a shot. This is probably the BEST music maker I ever used. I love how the controls are so easy, most packs are cheap, and that more sounds are available in the free pack, making easier to make a song without buying everything. Even if i did buy the Future Bass pack, it’s worth it and so cheap. Im probably soon gonna buy the master pack. Out of all the music apps I’ve used, especially Auxy studio, this is the best one. Keep up the good work plz🔥 Edit: Ok, the new update is ok, but a problem. The Master and Band packs used to cost about $9.99 (or around $9) and now, I can’t buy a pack individually anymore because you apparently gotta buy some sort of trial. It was better and easier for me when I could just buy a pack on its own and have it forever instead of buying a trial including ALL instruments for a LIMITED amount of time. Im just suggesting that maybe instead of having just the option of a trial, you can get the packs by themselves OR get the trial. Overall still a good app 😆
Lovely, but a Bug and some Suggestions
by unicrafticorn on 2019/08/28 23:06
This app is nice. The new update is alright, though I particularly preferred new packs as in-app purchases over membership (of course, I understand that’s how you guys make money). But recently the app’s been doing something weird: when I play something and turn my phone off, the parts come out all choppy, some not playing at all. Sometimes this leads to the app crashing. If it’s important, I do use Low Power Mode often. I’d appreciate if this were patched. Other than that, Medly is great for beginning musicians; after warming up to it, it’s relatively easy to create tunes. A question I’d like to ask is if new packs as outside of membership will be released, but I’d assume not if you’re plan is to release one membership pack a month. If you could, I’d love for the rock pack to have a dirtier guitar, or have the guitars play for an extended period of time at a consistent intensity. It would also be nice to have a “note” function that you can attach to bars if you want to fix/edit something in the future. It could also be different kinds of stamps. Overall, great app, love to use it :)
Great for any level of experience
by Corn Matters on 2018/12/17 01:00
The app is really intuitive and easy to learn regardless of your experience with digital audio interfaces. It’s great for beginners to get started with simple music production, and for the more advanced people out there you can still put together some really great sounding stuff in a variety of genres. It’s amazing when I have an idea on the go and I only have a few minutes to quickly get down some chords, a melody, and even record some lyrics. If you’re new to the app, it’s definitely worth looking into the yearly membership. If you’re like me though and you’ve already purchased the packs and you only want one new one, it’s up to you to decide if that’s worth a subscription. I think I speak for lot of dedicated Medly fans when I say that I would love to still be able to purchase individual packs separately from the membership subscription, but either way it definitely won’t stop me from continuing to use my favorite app.
Medley please read!!!!
by Jake 268470428944 on 2021/09/01 00:29
I have been using Medley to make my music for more than a year now and i can say that I am thoroughly impressed, the packs of instruments you can use are all wonderful, I love the drag and drop style of it, but there’s just a few things I wish were a little bit better. I wish there were more rap/trap/hip hop style packs or sounds, me personally I make beats and a wider variety of high hats, bass, and sound effects would be amazing. The other thing I wish was slightly better is the ability to input your own sounds/music/samples into the track you’re working on straight from your phone, it already works pretty well, but I’ve discovered that if you are trying to use this app to make a remix of something it doesn’t quite work as well, when you input a sample 30 seconds long And expand it across the track, there will be a slight audio glitch whenever the line passes into a different bar, this makes it difficult and tedious, I have to alter how my sample sounds just to cover up the glitch, if you could please fix this I will love you forever
10/10 UI & general app but new genres packs are lacking
by ValkyriiVail on 2017/10/30 12:25
I love this app! Making music was a passion I set aside ever since my explosive break up with GarageBand. Thanks to Medly, I can start mixing tunes no matter where I am, easily and efficiently. As a developer, It’s rare for me to come across a REAL public use app (rather than design mock ups or $$$$ apps I don’t need) that’s UI/UX is inspirational. I myself aim to create applications that are as clean cut, easy to use and that actually runs smoothly! #devboss #killedit With that said, my only and I really mean only wish is that new genre packs would be available soon!!! The ones we have now are hella rad and I can use all of them for some decent tunes. Yet! The available packs can only go so far since I mostly listens to future bass, trap, dubstep, bass and many electronic dance styles that are, in four words, face melting musical carnage. I weep about the fact there’s not a lot of options for me to play with. I’m sure your working on it! I will wait patiently with eager hope for some new packs that are more my style. Otherwise, keep up the spectacular work and I can’t wait to see what’s coming next!
Superb App
by YOURTRUSTYFRIEND on 2020/10/24 00:40
I love this app! I’m a piano composer, but I travel quite a bit, and I can’t lug my piano around everywhere. That’s why I use this app. I can log down different notation patterns I like the sound of on the app, and then try them out on my piano when I get home. I love how real the piano sounds are! I had a bit of trouble understanding the app design and how to log in notes at first, but they give handy step-by-steps for how to use many parts of the app, which is spectacular. I still very much prefer physical instruments to this, but I think that’s because I’ve never been an ace with technology—😂. The friend of mine who recommended this app to me uses it to make beats, which just goes to show it is easy to be used for many different people. I could only possibly think of one thing to complain about—which is just that it would be cool if you could lower the cost of a membership. I did try it for a month and loved that I could mess around with violin and saxophone sounds, but I really just would like if it could be a tad cheaper for a yearly subscription. I won’t be ungrateful, though, this is much more of a steal than most apps offer for premium—and just flat out better, too. Thanks for the great app! You guys rock! 😊👍
There’s a problem with the new update
by NeonGreenKing on 2021/08/03 22:16
So, the new way to swipe to different bars of your song is to use the dots at the top of the screen. This is pretty useful if you don’t want to manually swipe and swipe to get to the part you want to edit. However, I wish I still had the option to manually swipe. If I do that now, it goes all the way to four bars later. I don’t have access to edit certain notes and it feels really annoying and clunky. Wish I could visually show you what I’m talking about, but I don’t think there’s a way to do that on here. As of right now, I can’t use your app the same anymore. Hope this gets resolved soon ✌️ Edit: Ok, I don’t know if you guys did anything or not, but I’m not having that issue anymore. I was going to send a video to you guys explaining everything, but there wouldn’t be anything to show. All I can say is thanks!!
Really Good
by A.P.W.Cool guy on 2019/07/07 21:37
I’ve been reading some of the reviews about how “this should be free” or “why do you have to be member to get that”, but the response is plain and simple, Medly is a small company that needs funding to continue future operations. Now that that’s out of the way, here’s why I gave this app 4 stars. I get that you do need money, but I feel like at least one instrument pack should be free, I completely understand the reasoning if you are not able to, I just feel limited. The free trials of packs is a really good idea and I feel that listening to what is possible makes me want to be a member, but I just like to make little tracks so I’m not looking to purchase anything. In conclusion, I know I kinda sound like a choosing beggar but I feel there should be two starting packs. Now, I don’t know what all goes into making the instrument sounds, or how much it costs, so that also might be a factor in why the member option is important, but I hope you see where I’m coming from.
Great way to get people inspired to create
by SmiteMatter on 2019/08/30 20:29
First I want to say that the complaints about wanting free or much cheaper add ons are ignorant at best. The app didn’t just plop out of the sky without any investment or work done by the developer. Who do they think spends time making the loops, or coding the app, independently wealthy altruists with nothing but free time on their hands? No of course not. Real living humans do all the work and deserve to be compensated for their efforts. Asking them to work for free is just silly and a little insulting. Try walking into a burger joint and asking them for free food because you can’t or don’t want to pay for it. Same silly thing. Anyway, great looping app that reminds me a bit of Looptastic from iOS past. This is a well thought out app that is excellent for those who are new to music production to explore some creative avenues at a super low cost. I think even some vets with more experience may find this useful as well or at least a bit fun.
Dissatisfied
by Lolpooooooop on 2018/08/14 02:01
I have purchased the Jazz pack, and I am disappointed. I wanted to purchase the pack because I wanted to write out some of the pieces from my previous year in my schools band. The reason I am dissatisfied is because the range for the instruments doesn’t change at all. I was hoping for there to be an option for me to change the octave of the instruments, as I played the Baritone Saxophone. But there wasn’t. I had used the Low A (two ledger lines below the staff) numerous amounts of times and was sad that I couldn’t change it. I don’t want to just move up my music an octave because I’m lazy.... lol. This paragraph has basically just been a persuasive ‘essay’ for you to add an option to lower the octave range. Another hint I would like to mention is that the Gb and G for the Baritone Saxophone sound weird when put on the octave above the lowest F. Thank you for seeing this if you ever do, because I love this app and want to see it succeed.
This app is great, don’t question it.
by Tell_me_your_joking on 2018/12/16 06:17
I was expecting more instruments, of course (the ones there have been out for a long time), but I was not expecting a monthly subscription. I’ve been using this app for a long time because it didn’t have a subscription, I could just buy it and make songs on the go easily. I love the app always but this is not what I expected nor wanted and I’d think a lot of people using this app agree on this. Please take this into consideration. Also, there have been some things that have ticked me of before this. The overlay feature where you could see the notes of other instruments while editing was so useful back then so could you ever consider bringing it back? If you can’t I can understand. Edit: For people who have bought the packs before the update, you will not have to have a subscription for it. It will be kept. For the newcomers and new packs however, you will have to subscribe fir that. Hope that clears the air.
Amazing app but membership isn’t necessary
by challenk on 2019/02/05 22:13
This app is the greatest things of my life. I love all of it. Every single piece of it. The way the app works easy and simple to learn and use. And the amount of sound bites to use is plenty and they all sound amazing. My favorite pack is Master! But, sadly I can’t not use it. See, ones you download the app, the pack you start with is the starter and to get any more packs, you have to pay money. Now I would be fine with this if you could retrieve these packs by being given an option to buy as an in-app purchase or as an add-on in the App Store, but nope. I have to pay for a membership. Let’s just list some possible Scenarios that could happen: “1. I’m too young and I don’t have a credit card. 2. I don’t want to add my credit card to my phone cause someone could hack it. 3. I can’t pay for that.” Can guys please change the way I got to pay. Thxs!
Almost perfect
by Lynkster2101 on 2020/02/17 19:42
This app I stumbled upon quite a while ago (think December), and almost immediately upgraded to member. For a price such as almost 25 dollars a YEAR (more or less, I don’t remember exactly), you can get amazing, quality instruments to make music as you wish. But as I continue to make music, one thing keeps nagging me: the inability to change the time signature. All songs and beats you make are required to stick to the common 4/4 time. But sometimes, I might want to make a song that feels Waltz-ier, and want to go for a 3/4 signature, or maybe I want to just go crazy and challenge myself with a 5/4 time signature. I see how implementing this COULD be difficult, but I don’t see why it couldn’t be done. I’ll definitely keep using this amazing program, but if it were to add time signature changes, I would give it a full 5 stars.
Very nice, but...
by Naruto318 on 2018/12/26 15:13
This app seemed confusing at first but eventually you get used to how to use it. I like all of the different options there are (changing how loud a note is, being able to hear a note before placing it, being able to change the key of the piece, etc.) However, these are some things I’d like added: 1.) Crescendos and diminuendos. Being able to change the note’s loudness is helpful, but being able to have more steady dynamics where it’s very gradual is better. It’d be cool if we could just place this feature under the group of notes we want the crescendo or diminuendo to affect. 2.) The way we have to pay monthly or yearly for other features. I dislike having to pay in that way; I’d rather pay a base fee instead of each month or year having expenses for the app. So please add a bass fee option where we can just flat out pay the expenses for other features and get the payment over and done with.
Love the app but one suggestion
by MiaCongrez216 on 2019/01/30 19:17
I’ve been using this app for quite a while and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT ^~^ I’ve recreated music from Mario Galaxy, Hamilton, and some of the music from orchestra but I have a suggestion, is there any way in a future update an option can be added to change the time signature? Since this app can be used basically anywhere with ease I put in the notes for some of my music so I can listen to only my part since I mostly play by ear but a few pieces are a different time signature or some of the other music I transpose are a different time signature and this app only has 4/4 “^~^ or even to change the time signatures in an individual measure, I’m not really in a hurry or anything for it, it’s just a suggestion ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Anyways, this is my favorite music app to use; it’s fun to use and I love showing people the stuff I make on here and they love listening to it! ^~^👍🏼❤️
An AMAZING APP!!!!!!!!!
by supershan30 on 2018/09/16 04:15
I’ve tried almost every single music making app on the App Store and nothing comes CLOSE to Medly. I play the piano and the violin and have experience with making music of my own, however making music that way is very time consuming and not very efficient, and not many people who want to make music can play instruments I have several friends like this, BUT with Medly, anyone can! Plus, buying all the different sound packs (like I did) is well worth the money you would spend buying them. Its simple and easy to make music with and I’ve created entire 2-4 minuet songs (that includes all the re editing and even re doing the entire song itself) in a matter of minutes. So I guess the easiest thing to say about Medly is that it’s PERFECT for any kind of person and you shouldn’t waist your time searching for a better music making app. -Tristan Garrison
AMAZING!!
by Aqre- on 2020/05/11 17:02
I LOVE THIS APP! I have been using this app since the for at least 2+ years, and I've recieved nothing but excellent quality per every update. However this app lacks a lot of common instruments as well as a suggestion box where one could suggest new instruments and features. I would love to see more basic instruments including a vibraphone, tube bells, more acoustic guitars, more pianos (with more range), a standard drum set, a brush drum set, and more. Some of us love modern music, but at the same time, some of us would like to use common instruments. I'm sure people have improvised but that doesn't have the same feel as a classic instrument. I hope this comment can be heard (or read). Overall this is an amazing app and is very easy to understand. The UI is easy to understand after trial and errors. I'd recommend this app to all.
Love this app, here’s my suggestions.
by Alexando on 2020/10/06 13:52
I use this app regularly and love it. There’s a few things I’ve noticed that I’d like to suggest in case the devs read and consider these reviews. 1. I’d love a wider variety of “darker” sounds, particularly for the guitars. Everything is really upbeat and happy sounding, which isn’t bad (it suits most of the EDM stuff this was designed for pretty well) but I feel as if it could benefit from a broader emotional spectrum. A “metal” and/or a “blues” setting that’s similar to the “rock” setting might be appropriate there. 2. IMHO the pizzicato violin is the worst sound in the sets, I’ve been trying to use it but it’s kind of cringe which is unfortunate since I’ve liked the rest of the classical set. 3. A way to do glissando would be really nice and might not clutter up the UI too much if done well, such as with a tap and hold setting on a series of notes. Similarly, a way to do really short notes such as grace notes or ornamentals would also add a lot to the app. I was imagining this might work with a UI if you tap and hold a short note that precedes another note. 4. More time signature options wouldn’t hurt, although you can always just force them by writing it in manually, it wouldn’t hurt to have more coded options.
Wonderful
by Mike the Maker on 2020/04/19 02:35
Now before you roll your eyes hear me out. Some may find Medly annoying because you only have one pack without a membership but to me it’s worth it. The membership is a bit pricy (I’m not rich duh) but It’s worth it if you know what you’re doing (Unlike me 😂). You can create wonderful pieces or just simple ring tones. From Intros to background music the possibilities are endless. I would compare this to Minecraft. Pretty good if you are creative and will keep trying to find a solution. If you like me are un experienced the free version is great just to see where you can go with it. I do feel the one moth price is expensive and I think 3.99 or 2.99 would be much more decent, but I understand that the developers need money for the addition of new packs. TL:DR: Free version is great for beginners experimenting and paid is pretty good for intermediate music makers.
Pretty Awesome...but...why?
by Jshcljgjgokufoydiyfludoy on 2018/12/15 19:53
Look, I get that with the new subscription variable, you can receive a whole new pack monthly (which is pretty cool) but AT LEAST give us the arcade and Christmas packs WITHOUT THE SUBSCRIPTION. I’ve been using this app for, a very long time. Loved it, and I still do. But never in my mind did I think that you guys would throw this in our faces. I mean CMON! You seriously can’t get the best out of EVEN YOUR FAVORITE APPS without some kind of purchase. And it had to be my favorite type of sounds, arcade. I’m super disappointed and dissatisfied, but I still have hope in this app as long as you guys stop bribing us to get a subscription with ARCADE SOUNDS. Couldn’t have been anything else huh? Oh well, I hope this gets resolved and I will Continue to stick with this awesome app (as long as they don’t chuck a “SUPER DELUXE EXTRA AMZING SPECTACULAR” subscription at us.) Thank you.

Hey Medlylabs! I just want to say that this app is amazing and I pretty much use it everyday. For the price, the amount of content you have is fantastic and I couldn't ask for more. There's just a few questions I have about some instruments. Firstly, the guitars. The guitars in the rock pack are pretty cool, but they seem to only last as long as a single pluck. Like, you can't extend the sound for more than one beat or so. Why is that? It used to be different some years ago but you guys changed it before I could buy it. I'd really love to use the guitar instruments (because a lot of the songs I cover are pop rock and need guitars) but I can't use them the way they are now. Is there any way you can change them or make a new pack? Secondly, the violin, cello, and bass instruments lag by half a beat. Could you remove the lag? It’s sort of irritating because it doesn’t flow. Thank for reading this!
Amazing app, a few suggestions.
by Dpilly_ThePickle on 2020/02/05 03:55
Medly is an amazing app that I have been using for a while now. I love the direct export to soundcloud and other places and the simple and easy way to make music. I have a few suggestions though. One is a community. You could upload your albums/songs to a community area so other people can see your Medly music. People could like and comment on music they like. Another suggestion is some kind of point system. This could be based off likes on your song in the community. Basically, a certain amount of points can buy other instruments while others will stay member only to give you a reason to get a membership. Thank you for reading my suggestions, and I hope you take them into consideration in the next update.
Love The App, just one thing missing
by -Frostwall- on 2020/12/16 05:54
I’ve been using medley for two years now, and used Member for one year, and made some amazing songs with the app! Great place to start out with music, especially if you don’t have money. The one thing I wish could be added was a way to make your own sounds, like a wavetable inspired by the serum plugin for computer programs or something, while keeping the existing sounds, some as presets, some as member exclusive sounds not possible with the sound designer, to keep making money through to keep updating the app, and keeping people in music. I’m not completely freaking out over it since I have no idea how hard that is, andirons can live without it, but if it’s at all possible for a small company, at least try. Thanks! Keep up the great work!
For Those Who Love Making The Music
by Austinpire on 2017/11/20 02:25
Okay, I want to start out by saying you do NOT need to buy any of the in app purchases in order to make awesome tunes. Everything you need to start with is already there, but if you want to go advance or fine tune your music, I would suggest getting the band pack. Second, the app is EXTREMELY easy to get the hang of, even if you buy the band pack. I’m usually slow in “getting to know” apps, but this came as easy for me. Third, I have no problems with the app in terms of glitching or crashing, other than the times where I make everything extremely loud, which causes the app to either make it staticky or crash, but this is only due to the fact that I tried making it INCREDIBLY loud. This app is simple, easy, but the things you can make on it is incredible.
It’s good for beginners and casuals! Get Auxy Studio too.
by Vj starr on 2019/07/30 16:20
This app is just not a great app for me. It’s not my main DAW but I use it every once in a while for fun. The method of viewing scenes is restricting: You can’t easily have the same loops in multiple scenes, because the copy-paste can become tiresome. Medly features 10 or so instruments for free, and honestly, the selection is decent but the sample quality is a little lacking for professional use. If you are serious about music making, try Auxy in addition to Medly. It has customizable high pass and low pass settings, reverb, flexible delay settings, customizable drum kits, equalizer, and attack/release controls. These features would greatly improve Medly. Thats why I’m only rating this app 3 stars, because it’s not really for me. For now, Auxy is my choice for professional mobile music making. While Medly is not something I use often, it’s worth a try if you’re a casual user.
Not the best tool, but probably the best app.
by Stephen the Zealot on 2021/04/23 20:23
There are certainly better programs in terms of composition if you have a computer, but this is an excellent choice if you’re limited to an iPhone. The app has some interesting options packed in, but the fact that you have to pay such an expensive, monthly fee really holds it back. The instruments offered for free are way too limiting and are only barely serviceable. However, the paid instruments, while a bit of a mixed bag at times, lean more towards a rich and varied sound palette. Overall, it will help you as a beginner in finding interesting harmonies and crafting unique melodies, and it will also help in providing a very intuitive interface, but it will limit you in the long run if you get too comfortable with it. Make it a supplement, rather than your primary means of composition.
Crashes way too much!
by FunnyBoy 45 on 2021/07/01 14:01
I would like to give this app 5 stars but I can’t. I get Auxy is similar and as much as I wish that app would allow vocals in there, you can’t add any. It is why I tried to find a similar app to Auxy and when I stumbled across this app, I thought great. Another app similar to Auxy but better since this app allows you to add vocals, right? Wrong. This app is worse. Despite being able to add vocals every time I try and work on a song and I get into a minute into the song the app begins to crash. Every time I try and re-open my project it just crashes. I really hope this app can get a major stability fix. Keep in mind I am using this app on an iPhone 11 so my phone should be able to support and run this app without a problem. Hope the developers read this and instead of working on more instrument packs work on getting this app fixed first. Then maybe I’ll re consider my review and download this app again.
Absolutely LOVE this app but just one thing...
by Eellee on 2018/09/03 21:09
I’ve played around with garage band for a while now and it never provided me with the SOUND I was looking for. I don’t know how but I came across this app and I am SOOO glad I did. I was looking for something to make raw examples of tracks with but that sounded decent enough that wouldn’t embarrass me when I show my examples to producers. A way to get the songs in my head out of my head. But garage band wasn’t cutting it for me. I love this app! I went ahead and unlocked everything cuz I love it so much. My ONLY ONLY thing I don’t like is not being able to just record myself in one go over the beats I make. Nor being able to hear the song play while recording at the same time so I know where I’m at in the song. Please please add that feature and this app will be PHENOMENAL. Or at least make so it you don’t have to record by each bar! Anyway GREAT JOB!
Make Some Improvements
by A_G_973 on 2019/06/12 00:39
I think the app is great. There is a large variety of instruments, and there are a lot of options to easily assist with creating a song, such as adjusting the tempo and key. However, I think the app would be better if you add the option to change time signatures. Also, there are only three octaves when you add notes, so I think it would be better if you added some more to increase the pitch range. Lastly, I think it would be pretty cool if you allow users to tie/connect notes into other measures, and add an undo option for mistakes. Overall, I think the app has some really nice features but could definitely use some improvements to make it even better.
New Medly sounds grating and annoying, please fix.
by SkyTiger8 on 2017/11/29 22:48
Everything sounds different with the new update and not in a good way. It sounds so grating and sharp and it’s really annoying. I attempted to fix it by messing with the HiLo option but wasn’t happy with the results. The drums have this effect where everything else gets quiet when one plays. This is something I notice in a lot of modern edm and I kind of hate it!! I herd a a setting called ducker being mentioned but I can still here this effect clearly when ducker is turned all the way down on all the instruments. The bass is also different it sounds deeper which is ok but it’s also kind of muffled, this is a problem because I like to use a bass sound called overdrive as a lead by turning the pitch all the way up and now it sounds kind of muffled. I regret not saving my songs before this update because now they sound weird. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate all the new stuff in Medly but I want my songs to sound like they did before and for new songs I make to not sound too harsh.
Fantastic Platform
by AlyssaizBeast on 2021/11/23 06:11
Love medley, been a user for a few years. I pay annually for the membership and it is always worth it to me. They started adding on packs sometime through my time with them, so you’re always getting more and more variety. Only issue I have had recently is that audio clips intermittently just will not upload. I get past the screen where you choose your BPM, Key, Major/Minor etc.. and hit import, and nothing will show up in the slot. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn’t. It says that it works for samples up to 30 seconds and all of mine I have this issue with are 5-25 seconds. Otherwise, it’s a pretty in depth music software in the palm of your hand, I recommend to anyone who is interested in creating as a fun hobby, but not want to spend a fortune on DAW, MIDI, etc ..
This dev wants you to think you need to pay.
by TheWrittenJazz on 2019/06/21 00:27
Don’t buy anything. They say they have the best free offering on the App Store when there’s apps like audio kit synth one. How can you think yo I have the best free offering lol. Have you (the dev) even used these other apps? Why would you think you need to charge for the ability to loop? Ridiculous lol. I like the app too, I used it and tried the free 7 days, and all that did was reinforce how crazy it is to charge for the things they charge for. Instruments is one thing, simple features like looping is another. If you spend money on this app then that’s unfortunate as you could’ve just bought something actually worth the money like iMaschine or FL Studio if you really want quality. If you want free, audio kit synth one. Dev, you don’t need money the way you say you do, you WANT money. This app could’ve been developed by a high schooler in his free time with all the features for free.
Amazing, but this is a suggestion.
by Creeptank030 on 2018/04/21 14:27
I love it! All the different sounds, all the different ways you can make music, all the combos you can make with the music, it’s just amazing... but there is only one problem with me, and it’s something I want content-wise. I want something like the “8-bit plugin.” Something like the “8-bit plugin” is essential for the music I want to make. I am an Undertale nerd, so I want it. Also, people should be able to upload sounds to use and there is an in-app currency you can buy or earn to get things from the store. This would be marvelous, but these are only suggestions. I think this would make you a tremendous amount more money, and us, as users of the app, would love it. Oh and we should be able to download FLPs, too. This would be awesome.
Amazing app. Just some suggestions.
by RyanmanOH3 on 2018/10/09 01:30
Hey Medly creators. Just writing this review to give some ideas for future updates. This app is amazing for people to use, it’s simple, useful, and runs fantastically. The ideas I had for newer updates was for integration of different time signatures. So far we have 4/4 and 3/4 with triplets. But in the future I want to be able to have it so I can make a 5/4 song with ease. As well as keys using /8 like 7/8 and 6/8. Another feature is tempo changes. I want to be able to change the tempo so I can have a beginning of a song be 90 bpm but then later I want it to be 120 bpm. These would be tremendous upgrades to an already phenomenal app and I hope to hear some feedback/see these features added in the future.
Newest updates
by A disappointed player :T on 2021/07/25 09:38
The newest update made it harder to control the interface. Every time I tried sliding to the right to add patterns for the 2/4 of the loop it just took me to the next 1/4 loop without letting me go back to the one I was working on. I needed to manually exit that loop just to go back to the previous one. And although I could press the top to switch sections of the same loop segment it’s much comfortable being able to slide within it. Until the newest update made it a little frustrating. Sometimes when I think I was able to slide it I just ended up grabbing one of the patterns I placed and moving it on accident. so now I have to make sure not to grab them when I want to slide. so if I use to many patterns on the 1/4 it’ll be me trying to grab between them just to slide slightly onto the 2/4 of it. In all honestly I preferred the old interface than the new one.
Great MIDI Sequencer
by Piefayth on 2018/11/08 20:43
This is EXACTLY the kind of app I was looking for, and I’m thrilled I found it. Medly has all the power that your note roll in your favorite DAW does, but with none of the extra visual noise - the interface is gorgeously simple. It even undersells itself at first; the demos make little use of the automation feature, which allows you to dynamically modify effects like volume, pitch, and reverb on a note by note basis. I’ll include my personal grievances below, but I refuse to give this great app less than five stars. The developers clearly care about creating a quality product. - The only drums in the default instrument pack are basically non-viable. Too high pitched and tinny for a good drum sound. I would honestly prefer synthesized drums from some old console chip. Luckily it sounds like there are better drums in the instrument packs. - No support for VST instruments. I haven’t purchased the ability to do imports yet, but based on the listed supported file types, this is a no-go. Understandable, but creating a proper full instrument from recordings alone is a complete nightmare. It would be a massive boon to have some kind of digital synthesizer support. - No undo button?!
It’s great but limited
by Simp1e_Gämër on 2020/12/01 16:47
I just want to start off by saying, this app is not bad. It’s really fun to just play with and helpful to use if ever making music. I’m glad that they don’t use ads at all and it gives things to start out with to help you learn it. But after a while I got pretty bored using the same one starter pack, so I wanted to use more. But the problem with that is there is a ton of great packs that I could’ve used, but can’t since it’s pretty pricey. I feel like there should be more packs that are free to help it be more interesting other than the app begging for me to pay for more. Once again I respect that it doesn’t use ads but instead of ads it begs for you to pay for the other packs. Love the app, it’s fun to use, but I’m only giving three stars because one starter pack only gets you so far.
8/10 not bad
by my name jeffffff on 2020/11/09 03:39
There’s not much to complain. The prices are fair. I don’t see why people are complaining for a free app. It’s not like they charge you every time you open the app. What they’ve made is much cheaper than fl studio. The app is easy to use. You can basically take it anywhere it’s much better than all the music apps you can get. Some cost more than this. So if you want to become a future producer you should first think of prices. This is one of the cheaper ones so don’t complain about the money it’s better if you try a different app if you can’t afford it. Don’t try and haggle an app that doesn’t get as much money as all those apps that insert a 30 second video after you click on an instrument. Or take advantage of the free trial.
Issues With Imported Audio
by Kat Bogd on 2020/06/07 20:38
There is a wide range of instruments & they are fun to arrange, as well as to adjust volume, echo, reverb, etc. and the gradual progression of those through automation. Theoretically, this is a great app and the monthly subscription fee is very reasonable. However: 2) My biggest concern is the audio import feature - the fact that it is limited to only 30 seconds in length, and furthermore even if you do only have 30 seconds, it makes a weird jump in audio when split into 2 parts (even if you click continue from previous section) is very inconvenient. Having the ability to import continuous audio that flows seamlessly across sections, and goes for a longer period of time, would be enormously helpful. 1) There are also issues with some of the higher or lower notes on certain instruments, that end up sounding odd; this is a minor problem though, as most of them are fine. I believe that this app could be improved vastly through allowing imports of longer audios, and allowing those audios to be stitched together across sections without interruptions. Potentially, it could also be improved by fixing up the notes on a couple of instruments; but again, this part is minor.
Great app! BUT.......
by Jona111000 on 2019/07/16 02:23
Love this app great way to start making music but my only problem is that you only get a starter loop and every other loop isn’t free so it’s kind of hard to make a different genre of music that requires a different sound or beat:( please make the loops free I could understand why the developers put the other loops for members but if you can make all the loops free that are in the app right now and add more loops that are exclusive so people have to buy the loops not join a membership it would be so much better so just make all the loops free in the app then add new ones you have to BUY thank you Because there are other apps that all the loops are free and they add new ones like every week or so. You the developers would get way more people to download the app
Great in some aspects, good in others
by Axilleast on 2018/10/09 15:53
This app seems like it’s really tailored to a few different genres...I bought all the packs and for me as a metal guitarist it’s somewhat limiting, I can’t manage to double bass drum and change time signature which you’d think would be pretty standard...as it is, I do use it for getting basic rhythms from my head to a tweakable medium and it’s really easy and nice to use. They’ve done a great job with everything, I just feel it’s an update or two away from being incredible. Instead of looking for more instruments or whatever to add next, try including the ability to change meters after a segment...and if these are options I haven’t discovered, then really consider a manual that covers all these nuances please! ...but seriously, really great job on the programming thus far.
Great app! Slightly upset... Please change this!
by Caiden 1111 on 2018/12/15 05:00
Don’t get me wrong. I love this app and make loads of tracks on it that I enjoy. It is easy to pick up and learn, and once you become good, you can make seemingly professional tracks. My only issue is that I used to love the fact that you can purchase different sound packs separately. With the new membership program makes it feel like a license to keep the instruments that you pay for rather than actually owning them if you get what I mean. Hopefully there can be a way to add both ways of obtaining a pack of sounds for users who don’t want to jump right into the membership. Me and many others are really looking for a change to revert back to the old ways of obtaining new sounds. I hope you understand where I’m coming from with this, and that something can be done soon! Thanks for reading!!
Suggestion
by N1000and1 on 2019/06/12 15:27
Is there a way that you could set up a system as to where people could vote for the monthly pack genre? Don't get me wrong I love the app and the variety of instruments, but the sounds do have a similarity issue. Too similar. A Tropical House Pack after already have a Dancehall Pack isn't the best idea to me (Especially since Dancehall is the biggest one). When you have many versions of basically the same sound, it started to feel oversaturated. If your team were to release a genre like Synthwave or Alternative/Indie, that would be amazing Other that little thing, the app is amazing, easy-to-use, and fun. I've used it since near the beginning and it has only gotten better.🤩🤘👏
Many things!
by iBH1806 on 2018/05/22 01:07
First off, the email for support. They reply usually within 1 minute-30 minutes. This is awesome because if you need help, they’re right there and are able to assist quickly. Also, the possibilities of making music are pretty much endless. It can be slightly hard because of rhythms, but after a while, you will get the hang of it. But, I will be dropping it a star because the only type of music that is free is the starter. It’s handy for a while, until all of the sounds sound so boring. There are other packs, but they cost 3 dollars each, and 10 dollars for larger packs (multiple smaller ones inside). I know the apps need to make money, but it shouldn’t be 3 dollars for a pack of classic instruments. Other than that, great app and staff helping with the app! =)
