used to love it
by oskar eigen on 2019/07/18 19:17
I used to love this app, and I used it all the time. I bought all the packs because I was really having fun and I wanted more instruments. I was excited when more instruments were released, but was greatly disappointed when I realized that you needed to become a member to use them, which wasn’t cheap. Why add a subscription when users already have to pay for half of the packs?
Good

I really love this game but since i cant give it ten stars here is a one star
Concern
by Mrbdog30469 on 2019/07/18 08:49
The app is nice. I personally have my complaints here and there but that’s not the problem. I decided to try the 7 day free trial and afterwards decided it wasn’t for me. However when I went to cancel my subscription, it tried to take me to the apple app store which then gave me the “Fail to load App Store” How am I supposed to cancel now? Personally I fee as if you guys need to have a way to cancel FROM THE APP or at least have a link or something to allow such a thing. Also if any of the Devs wanna...ya know, help me out here I’d very much appreciate it. >.>
Please connect to different devices
by 😡 MY MONEY!!! on 2019/07/17 07:11
Please connect to Game Center or let it be possible to make an account because I made a really nice song, it’s on my iPad but I want it on my phone. I’m getting a new iPad and it’s painful to throw away the song and it’s really long so it’s going to take me ages to copy it on my new iPad.
Reasonable

Good for working around ideas.
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
A Good Start to Music Production...Not Perfect
by Colderbo - Ben on 2019/07/14 10:56
In essence, Medly is a good app. It’s a great place to start your path of music production, and it provides a lot of opportunities in trying different instruments, styles, rhythms, and so on. It has plenty of reasons to check it out, but as someone who has been using this app for almost two years, I think it’s fair to say that I have a grounded basis in my critiques of this app, which there certainly are. Aside from all the positives and venues to try new things in the music production community via this app, the negatives can really hinder your experience and make it less enjoyable. Firstly, there is a surplus of obnoxious glitches, many of which require you to restart the app every few minutes just to keep using it. Then of course, there’s the annoying subscription fee to try new instruments, which would be acceptable if this was not a beginner music production app. If it was more professional and generally much larger and of a higher standard of quality, I could understand this, but this app is not quite at that level yet, and is better off as a platform to introduce people to creating music. Moreover, most of the critiques I personally have involve a lack of opportunity. Some of my most common complaints arise from restrictions that honestly shouldn’t exist at this point in the production of this app. Making music feels constricted when you can only use 4/4 time signatures and only have a few registers to work with. I would find this app much more enjoyable if I had access to more opportunities in creating distinguished music: 3/4 and 5/4 time signatures, another register above or below for higher/lower pitched songs, the ability to speed up and slow down the tempo throughout the song - mostly basic music theory concepts that I feel should’ve been incorporated by now. In fact, if these issues and restrictions were addressed - if just a few, I believe I could easily look past some of the minor inconveniences from subscription fees and the glitches, as it would make the experience much greater for both experts and beginners. Ultimately, it’s a good app, but if I’m blatantly honest, it’s not much more than that. Until these new opportunities are incorporated or addressed, I can only see this app as “just good.”
Amazing

I love the app it’s amazing you can make all kinds of music in it!
Free to One Time Purchase to Member
by Euphoria MoonShine on 2019/07/11 13:56
I got this app a little while ago, on the hunt for any music app besides the classic Garage Band, to make music and explore a lot of things without using a computer. This app does exactly that. I was so inspired I ended up buying the Band Pack for around $9.99, which was a great investment. I was pleased with the sounds and loops I received. Once the Medly Member was released, those one time purchases were gone. However, this app is such high quality and the sounds and loops they add are very much worth it. Therefore, I bought the Member, and I am VERY pleased. I highly recommend this app, and even without purchasing all the Membership, you can still have a lot of fun.
AMAZING!
by Zxues on 2019/07/11 01:01
Real review from a real user. This app has sparked my creativity. The updates are frequent and improve in quality each and every time. I have no complaints! But I would in the future maybe like to see an expansion of mastering or eq (if its even possible) to make our final products louder and more professional on soundcloud or releases in general! Other than that thank you for giving me the ability to create again! ❤️ And dont stop on the sound packs! Keep em coming! ❤️❤️ Maybe some Riddim/Dubstep/DnB packs also!
Meh, I have a complaint.
by Ahhr music: The ANMOLYS on 2019/07/10 23:35
Man I gotta tell you this is a FANTASTIC app. But the fact that you have to buy EVERYTHING is frustrating. Can we have free stuff too?
Great

Watered Down Garageband
by chickensoup213 on 2019/07/10 16:50
I like this app and all, and it’s how I started writing music and putting it on SoundCloud, but why bother with this when Garageband is completely free and has more to offer? Don’t get me wrong, Garageband isn’t perfect by any means, but its more flushed out than this and is more well put together. So there isn’t any reason not to download this app but I feel as if people who truly want to get into music should go for Garageband instead
Hardstyle pack in August maybe??
by Codexatrix on 2019/07/09 14:25
To be honest a lot of the people using Medly are making electronic music, and one genre that is really awesome is Hardstyle, plz add it, (or at least just some instruments and screeches for it)!!!
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.
The only problem is the audio in he starter pack
by XgamebattlrX on 2019/07/07 18:32
The audio in the starter pack is amazing, it just lags a little bit and for some reason it’s (barely) faster than all my beats so it kinda sounds off beat, so could you probably text that out and fix that? AMAZING APP BY THE WAY KEEP IT UP!!
Nice app, a few requests
by Ruegrall on 2019/07/07 01:19
Very easy to lay down some cool tracks. I would even subscribe if it weren’t for the lack of a few things: 1. Non-standard time signatures like 5/4 or 7/8. Can’t do a remix of Holst’s Mars in 4/4 or 12/8 and have it maintain the same intensity. I’ve written stuff in 13/8. 2. Being able to copy multiple columns or several columns of a track at once. 3. Add a button to take you all the way to the end instead of having to scroll if you go back to the beginning for something. 4. User defined names for tracks 5. User defined names for columns. That way you can flag sections, particularly if your work is 100 columns long. 6. Max columns to 256. 144 is an odd and somewhat arbitrary number. Add all that stuff and you’ve got another subscriber. Otherwise I’m limited to a lot of straight 4 or 12/8 grooves which is ok but can be mundane. Great app otherwise!
Nice music maker app
by Jeremyewhite on 2019/07/06 21:56
I like this app a lot, but I really wish there was a feature so that you could record in something by hand instead of only being able to use what is already there. It would be great if this feature worked by using a MixPad to record your line into it, that would make my job a hell of a lot easier.
Amazing App, Want More Features
by Chansante on 2019/07/06 01:15
First off, out of all the music apps I’ve tried, this one is by far the best. It is EXTREMELY intuitive. I decided to buy the membership (which is shockingly affordable by the way) very quickly. There are a few things this app needs before it reaches perfection, but the most important of those things, in my opinion, is time signatures. That’s my number one request. If you aren’t working on it already, please add options for time signatures other than 4/4; it would immensely increase the utility of the app. You’d make me a subscriber for so much longer, maybe even for life.
Luv it

BRUH this app thingamajig is da bomb digidy. But you really gotta do it to em by not having them dank lit dab fam sounds my guy. BRUH. I’m finna tryina get them accordion and banjo and harmonica and harpsichord and Organ sounds my homeslice breadslice dawg. Legitimately though, I would actually really appreciate it if you would add those sounds. You should also add the ability to record your own sounds and use them as an instrument instead of just adding audio to the song. Great app! I use it all the time but PLEASE add those instruments! BRUH Hehe haha boi
Cuts my music
by TechnologyMaster8 on 2019/07/02 13:57
It puts random cuts in my music when I try to save or share it. Fix this now or I will delete Medly - and give up on my electronic music career! I cannot find another good app for making EDM music! Trust me, I’m REALLY GOOD! And it sometimes glitches and when I start to test-play an unfinished song, it is quiet for one measure and then just SKIPS to the next!

I love this app and I’m constantly using it! I recently got into hardstyle music and it would be really cool if you guys added a hardstyle pack!!
Medly isn’t as great as it used to be…
by Nakao123 on 2019/06/29 22:28
(This is an updated review) I used to really love Medly, but after the updates, I really didn’t enjoy Medly as much as I used to. All the packs are geared towards those with a taste in very basic modern pop-focused music. While I bought the first packs (classical, house, jazz, etc.), those packs are no longer available to buy. Others can’t use any synthetic instruments that sound like actual instruments other than piano. Also, the packs feel a little rushed. While there’s always an instrument or two that’s very unique, I really feel like a lot of the instruments are just slight variations of a previous instrument. In addition, there is still no way to compose songs with a time signature of 3/4. While I can still compose music with the same packs I used to own, I feel like Medly isn’t improving- especially if you didn’t buy the old packs. Also, I can’t export songs that I made when I had a membership containing member instruments. This is irritating and prevents me from listening to my own music. Medly was incredibly useful- it’s a great, easy-to-use system- but I feel like a wonderful platform has been thrown away by the new Membership system. If the packs were more diverse and detailed (perhaps improvements on old jazz and classical instruments as well as newer ones, maybe some traditional instruments, some synth that isn’t steeped in the rigid styles of modern pop), songs with member instruments were exportable, and the 3/4 problem was fixed, Medly would be wonderful again. (Perhaps a profitable way to purchase individual packs for those who don’t want a full membership would be nice, but the main problems I mentioned are the biggest issues.) Thank you for listening! Please restore Medly!
Took money
by liaNova on 2019/06/28 23:58
I accidently payed for a subscription i didnt want, 40 dollars was taken and there’s no way to get it back, i’m very furious and i tried canceling the subcriptiom, im stuck with something i dont wanna pay for, and i want my 40 dollars back.
Amazing but
by pwkkwjsuhbobsyivsksjtc on 2019/06/28 16:38
This app is amazing, I only have one complaint. I don’t want to pay a membership and would rather pay a one time fee.
I do like this app a lot but why have almost all music member exclusive?
by Yungyup on 2019/06/27 15:21
This app is awesome yet I do have one problem with it, almost all but the starter pack cost money that (as a kid) can’t use without getting in trouble with my parents for using their credit card XD, but getting back on track, I think maybe make some genres of music free to use
Music creation in the palm of your hand
by AlyssaizBeast on 2019/06/27 04:49
I have been using Medly for roughly a year and a half. As a music lover it is truly fantastic to be able to create at home or on the go. The frequent update of new packs is wonderful. There is lots of variety and the app as a whole definitely deserves five stars in my opinion. The only suggestion I would have would be to potentially have some further editing options on the sounds themselves in the future. To be able to personalize the music even more. Overall I am in love with this app and I am a weekly user. Thank you for creating this!
Used to be great, then it went downhill!
by HydraYeet on 2019/06/26 00:08
I loved this app. This music creator was great and I didn’t mind the Medly exclusive. Before, I had bought packs with money instead of the medly exclusive. For example the jazz pack, and the classical pack. Now I enter medly for the first time in a while and now I have NO ACCESS TO ANYTHING. I bought all the other packs and have no intent to spent money on a subscription. I’m writing this because I paid money before for these packs and now have to pay more since everything is medly exclusive. Please respond i find this odd.
Incredible
by tya_fx4 on 2019/06/25 02:20
Without a doubt the most incredible mobile program for music production! Simple and easy to learn interface, great sound bank, perfect sample importing interface. Could not ask for a better app. (And most definetly worth the subscription)
Sad
by cause of the lag on 2019/06/24 22:48
medly i really like this app but every time i try to upload to sound cloud it won’t let me :( please help
Cool.
by GhostlySnow on 2019/06/24 04:37
Great app. Something I find a little disappointing is that 3 octaves is very limiting and I wish there were more octaves available. The app also crashes every time I try to export a song.
Request
by LazyBonesPapyrus on 2019/06/22 05:04
So I’m making a game (undertale fangame) and I was hoping that you could add a megalo pack? It’s a Megalovania soundfont and strings and bass and more. Thanks, if you add it. Just a request, you don’t have to add it.
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.
Why
by MEGAKAT64 on 2019/06/19 15:29
I like this game but like 99.9% of everything in it costs money. I don’t have money to pay for the good stuff! Please make more free stuff and or make some of the stuff already in it free
Easy to Use ^^
by CatsSayMeow1 on 2019/06/19 01:27
I’ve been using this app for over a year and I love it! It’s simple and easy to make music on this app. Though, I have a suggestion, is there anyway to change the beats per measure from 4/4 to 3/4? If not, it’d be pretty cool to add that feature. Thank you!
Features...
by KDaWG_V2 on 2019/06/18 16:55
I’m a little sad that I can’t have all the cool stuff or it would be 5 star but good overall.
One bug
by Jhcvdvjnhdcj on 2019/06/18 08:21
This app is great for brainstorming. But just one bug... if I start from the last bar in my project and replay it, some of my notes won’t play. I was wondering if there is a way to share my project with your development team, since this is an easily replicable issue. I haven’t become a member yet, and currently using the latest version of Medly as of 6 days ago, with an iPhone 6S with iOS 12.3.1. Great app for quickly getting ideas down, though. Gonna use it more often :)
Hey Medly...
by TheKuleFoxThatArtz on 2019/06/16 21:23
Sorry for bothering you again, but I was wondering if there will be a chance you could add Overdriven Guitar soundfont? I’m know you’ll probably say no but I’m just making sure.

by CowboysFan12345 on 2019/06/14 22:26
I’ve been using Medly for quite some time now and have even published a few songs through the app. Smooth, simple controls and a large variety of sounds/loops. My only complaint: The Dubstep sound pack is moderately underwhelming. When you compare the what you can do in Dubstep to some of the other packs, it pales in comparison. Would love if the devs would expand on the Dubstep pack or add another pack tailored to that genre!

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.🤩🤘👏
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.
Great app
by sparkle unicon on 2019/06/11 01:40
It is a great resource but holds you back a bit. But that is not a problem half the time and you figure out by doing that you don’t want to do you find what you really need. For songwriters it is sometimes a pain but for people who are just looking for a beat it’s amazing I do recommend it for most everyone.👍🏽 I personally do love it it’s amazing all the resources it has I could stay on it for hours and it makes you think I also recommend it for children. It allows them to think and work their brains while doing something fun.
Lol u shud make it all FREE
by lostproductivity on 2019/06/10 19:57
Just kidding. As a former developer I know it’s like pulling teeth making “munny” with freeboids. Well played with the new update and I look forward to trying it out.
Great until membership
by mculee on 2019/06/07 19:50
Medly is the perfect daw for learning music production, this is because of the simplicity of all of the instruments And the creativity the app requires. I loved it until one day when I logged on and wanted to spend money for a new pack. It was the future bass pack and it looked amazing then I was met with an unpleasant surprise, medly membership. I might delete the app but even worse for you guys you just lost money that I would have spent. RESIST THE GREED if it is attached to the membership DO NOT BUY IT. Now medly I have no issues with a membership service if you allow separate purchases as well but it is wrong to lock it all down. Thank you for listening to my ted talk.
Amazing!

Slight issue with new update
by Sherry Belchah on 2019/06/04 17:53
Been using app for a while and have long been waiting for an undo button. Unfortunately the bar these options are put on cover an important area of the screen and won’t move. Maybe if it was in an expandable button itself? If possible I’d request some enhancement on audio editing, I’m not good enough to start recording at the right time when the music stops and it’s sometimes difficult to get the audio to sync with the beat
Very good
by dascooby on 2019/06/02 23:02
The app can make lots of good stuff but one of my problems is that I’m not sure if I can purchase individual instruments. I’ve been able to do it before.
Amazing but...
by Ethan T Davis on 2019/06/02 03:22
I love this app to death and I have made some pretty good (in my opinion) music, but after a few years of dedicated use, I do have some suggestions etc. 1. The ability to stack audio in a single bar; So let’s say you make an audio that is only two whole notes long, and there are another 2 available for use. In order to fill those notes, you need to re record the whole thing. Unless there is already a way to do this that I’ve missed, then that would be cool. 2. When you exit the app, the music doesn’t stop (pure awesomeness), but the app fritzes out after a couple of seconds, then crashes. This didn’t used to be a problem, but on later versions it has been. 3. Exporting: As of lately the app also crashes when I try to export my songs. Also the ability to export songs as video to the photo album. Otherwise my favorite app for many years; and I completely understand and agree with the decision to have a payed membership for revenue. Keep up the good work! -Ethan
A solution to the 1 problem
by dfgetgte on 2019/06/01 15:21
Every thing in Medly is fantastic and awesome I like the leads and drums but there is a problem, and I know that past reviews you found out this problem. The problem is lack of sounds and loops. You see, loops are things that people in Medly desire, and the sounds of different genres which sparkle so great, EVERYBODY wants them. So to solve the solution make a few more free sounds or packs and make loops available. Then when you fix this problem your 4.6 star rating will go up 4.8. Think about it make Medly great again...
5 stars to cancel out a past 1 Star review I gave

I have a few requests. Could you maybe put the time in the up right corner while we’re creating Medlys? I’m tired of having to go back to look at the time. I could get in trouble if I loose track of the time. I also read a different review and you said that it costs a lot of money to make this app. And that if you couldn’t make money it wouldn’t exist. What if you just added a few more free sound packs and made the rest of them cost money? If you’re doing fine raising money for Medly, there is no reason why you couldn’t make just two or three packs free because me and probably a lot of other people are tired of the only free sound pack. The Starter Pack. A lot more people would download this app. This is my favorite app. I just think you could really make it better if you just give us more instruments to use. Think of all of the 7,000,000,000 people on the planet that would want you to do this. Do it for the world.
Help Please

Sorry to bother you but I need help. Every time I go to cancel my subscription it says that I can’t access the AppStore. This only started after I subscribed, and I feel like I’m being scammed. Is there any other way to cancel my subscription?
Great for beginners but is still somewhat limiting
by Chad (Gr1d_Labels) on 2019/05/27 02:53
This app is amazing. I am able to make music to my hearts content. There are a multitude of instruments that you can mess around with. I do have a few suggestions for future updates 1: remove the limits of 24 instruments per song. I ran into this issue and i am currently stuck. 2: allow audio clips to be altered with the automated pitch tool. This allows for extra effects tp be made with the loops and for self recorded audio clips to have more of a range of applicability 3: PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE add an EQ option. Make it as an extra tab in the options menu when you tap on the instrument. This will allow for people to explore the world of sound design and make more unique music. 4: this is more of a bug than a suggestion. Whenever i have two audio clips back to back, there is a very slight but noticeable pause between the two cells even though i have linked the two cells and hit the continue from last cell button. Can you please make a feature to where you can make an audio cell take up 8 bars. It would take up the place of two cells so that all of the other loops won’t repeat 8 times.

What happens to the auto mastering?
by 56wrty329 on 2019/05/26 01:49
Ever since the latest update my songs sound way different because of the new auto Mastering preset that you put on the app. My songs have way too much bass now in the side chaining sounds off to me, please revert to previous auto mastering presets for next update! I do not want to have to fix all my songs. I like the new sounds though

Good app, terrible content. Unless you’re willing to spend money, there is absolutely no good sound or anything to that matter of fact that you can use.
You’re bullying me
by ihavenosoulat46 on 2019/05/25 15:31
I hate this app cause I’m bad at it. I’m a musical genius and everything I do sounds bad. I think it all traces back to my instability because of latest divorce. Anyway, have a good day, and be glad you have a life.
Awesome

I really love this simple and easy app!! I actually prefer it over garage band because it’s simpler

This is really frustrating. If I want to click the different types of beats I made it doesn’t let me! I have to click it multiple times for it to play. It’s late.
This app is not working like i am telling it to!

So i was making a song and i was trying to move this block and i kept on either making it longer or selecting all. Can u fix it? Thx
Great app

This is great, though I am just a beginner and the stuff is sort of hard for me, but I love it I love making music.
It’s okay but something is wrong

This app is great! But, would you mind if you can import music in for free?

More instruments
by Daindune on 2019/05/15 03:03
The App Is Awesome, But it needs more instruments. Like a Celesta, Vibraphone, A chorused Electric Piano, Harpsichord, A Timpani, And an Oboe. Please, The new pack can be Called” Other Instruments. Thank You.
PLEASE READ
by Zachary Austin on 2019/05/15 02:37
Ever since the ChillStep update I have had trouble with making songs that use instruments that are related to ChillStep. When I open the songs that use some of the instruments and try to play it, it eventually will stop while it’s still playing and the app crashes and it’s happened every time. I don’t want to delete the app and reinstall it because I would lose everything I’m working on so if you could try to see if there’s anything you could do that would be awesome. Other than that I really love this app!!

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!
Confusion
by ClawGuru on 2019/05/10 14:42
To clarify, when one purchases the monthly or yearly subscription is every pack unlocked? Or does it require a payment of $5 to unlock every pack.
I like it but there are a few small problems
by Lightspeed8903 on 2019/05/07 14:38
This app is great for anybody looking to get into making music. I got it as a way to write down and save riffs I wrote on my guitar, so I bought the rock pack to see what the electric guitars sounded like and I’m kinda disappointed. They’re all simulated rather than sampled, unlike the acoustic guitar sounds. Everything else sounds great, though.

Best app for music but one thing
by -Frostwall- on 2019/05/05 22:00
I love this app. It’s simple, and I’ve made good music. But one thing. Why can’t I save the file to my phone as an mp3 file? There are a couple sites out there for music that require mp3 and I can’t upload to them. Maybe if that could be an option soon? Still a really good app and sounds great even without buying anything!
Amazing
by TianIdontcareJac on 2019/05/03 20:20
This is by far the best free mobile DAW/Music Maker. This helps me put down my ideas for FL Studio while I’m on the road. A nice addition would be synth where I can create my own sounds. I honestly think Medly could be a real DAW with added features.
Still my favorite
by 狐こりんね on 2019/05/03 16:05
Been using this app since whatever version was around for ios8 and it keeps getting better. Compared to some other music apps it doesn't take up much memory, even with 500+ songs. It's my absolute favorite app to quickly capture ideas. I would like to be able to change the time signature or change the tempo and key of individual loops though. I also would like to be able to purchase packs separately for keeps like they were previously available.
Good interface, one annoying bug
by INDIEGAMELOVER on 2019/05/03 03:17
I just got medley, and I was able to make a decent song pretty quickly. There’s one really annoying thing, though. I tried to make a new album. I changed the name and then wanted the change the artwork, though the presets looked really nice. I had my own custom album art saved in my photos, and I had let it access those same photos, but it wouldn’t let me change the artwork to anything besides the presets. I even tried restarting my iPad and it still didn’t work. If this is something where you have to get a membership to change the artwork, that really should’ve been made clear.
5 stars!
by ItsCAlex on 2019/05/01 11:15
I first got medly because a friend recommended it to me. I used use garage band, but this sounds so much better! The best part is that the membership is really cheap! If there was 10 stars, I’d give medly all 10.

AWSOME!!!

This app is Amazing! Not only can I make music, but I can also import it into my animation software and make animations with music! Many thanks to all of the developers! I only wish that I had the many other musical instruments to further improve my music though .😢
Amazing
by another random dood on 2019/04/22 06:20

Its pretty cool app in general. Allows to do many of cool things. But in some reason it has no undo/redo function.
The best app for aspiring (and professional) musicians
by shamaezaheer on 2019/04/16 00:18
I have used numerous apps to achieve what I needed - make beautiful music with little (read none) knowledge of music theory. Medly is the only app that offers the intuitiveness, as well as the breadth of features to permit anyone to make amazing music. Try it, you will be blown away! Keep up the great work, guys!
THE. BEST. MUSIC. MAKING. APP.
by Prof. McYeet on 2019/04/14 21:26
Thanks for making this app. It’s better than the rest. It can always be improved, but it’s already just better than the rest, hands down. I’ve been using Medly for a while now, and I love it. Keep up the great work! Now, for some suggestions. 😂 I would LOVE to have a Glitch Hop pack added soon! It’s my favorite kind of music, and I would really enjoy having a pack solely dedicated to that subgenre of electronic music. Maybe add some Voxes to that pack, too, as Glitch Hop uses Vox a lot. Also, a feature I would love to see (and that I’ve wanted for a long time now) is a Tempo Change option. It really would be cool to change speed during a song, and I think many people would agree! Anyway, that’s all from me. Thank you for your time and for making (and continuing to develop) an amazing app!
Let us be able to purchase sets
by Theluckyemerald on 2019/04/13 20:51
This would be good for people that want to specialize in certain sounds. I was thinking maybe each sound should cost 2.99 to 4.99.
Subscription
by Pirie.L on 2019/04/13 15:49
I love this app a lot, but there is an issue. I have tried and tried, but I simply can’t cancel my subscription, no matter how hard I try. Personally, I think that when you delete the app, the subscription should be cancelled. Please try to fix it.
Once I got this that day I couldn’t stop.
by some guy who likes your app on 2019/04/13 03:31
Ever since I got this in 2015 (4 years I’ve had this app!) I couldn’t stop using it and I’m still using it today. I sometimes get bored on what instruments I could use. But since I wanted to make a review on this masterpiece of a music maker I wanted to ask a small request.... Is it possible if you can make a horror kind of instrument pack? I have been into soundtracks for horror games and always wanted to compose my own for a big animation I plan on working on. If you can do that it would be awesome!😁👍 I absolutely love this app so much and it’s new stuff. My most favorite one is the arcade!👍👍👍

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 😆
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
Very great app but...
by ConstantlyCrashingAppslol on 2019/02/19 13:39
I would guarantee a large quantity of people that use this app are still on school. Making a subscription service completely ruins everything for most people that don’t have jobs (the people that are in school). I preferred paying 10 dollars for each pack of sounds. I get you guys want to make it “easier” but I don’t see how it’s easier, and I’d guarantee you guys would make more money if you just went back to packs (especially if a new pack is introduced every second Tuesday of each month). Sorry to say 💀 I love the app but no type of subscriptions pull me in regardless of what they have to offer. I’m not hating on the app, nor the subscriptions, I really love the app.. I just don’t think subscriptions are the way to go. When I first saw new packs I was like “yay I’ll definitely buy them!” Just to come to a realization you now need a subscription to use them.
Great app
by Luigi#1⭐️⭐️⭐️ on 2019/05/29 04:30
I have a few requests. Could you maybe put the time in the up right corner while we’re creating Medlys? I’m tired of having to go back to look at the time. I could get in trouble if I loose track of the time. I also read a different review and you said that it costs a lot of money to make this app. And that if you couldn’t make money it wouldn’t exist. What if you just added a few more free sound packs and made the rest of them cost money? If you’re doing fine raising money for Medly, there is no reason why you couldn’t make just two or three packs free because me and probably a lot of other people are tired of the only free sound pack. The Starter Pack. A lot more people would download this app. This is my favorite app. I just think you could really make it better if you just give us more instruments to use. Think of all of the 7,000,000,000 people on the planet that would want you to do this. Do it for the world.
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
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Great for beginners but is still somewhat limiting
by Chad (Gr1d_Labels) on 2019/05/27 02:53
This app is amazing. I am able to make music to my hearts content. There are a multitude of instruments that you can mess around with. I do have a few suggestions for future updates 1: remove the limits of 24 instruments per song. I ran into this issue and i am currently stuck. 2: allow audio clips to be altered with the automated pitch tool. This allows for extra effects tp be made with the loops and for self recorded audio clips to have more of a range of applicability 3: PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE add an EQ option. Make it as an extra tab in the options menu when you tap on the instrument. This will allow for people to explore the world of sound design and make more unique music. 4: this is more of a bug than a suggestion. Whenever i have two audio clips back to back, there is a very slight but noticeable pause between the two cells even though i have linked the two cells and hit the continue from last cell button. Can you please make a feature to where you can make an audio cell take up 8 bars. It would take up the place of two cells so that all of the other loops won’t repeat 8 times.
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?!
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!!
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.
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.
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! =)
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
Free to One Time Purchase to Member
by Euphoria MoonShine on 2019/07/11 13:56
I got this app a little while ago, on the hunt for any music app besides the classic Garage Band, to make music and explore a lot of things without using a computer. This app does exactly that. I was so inspired I ended up buying the Band Pack for around $9.99, which was a great investment. I was pleased with the sounds and loops I received. Once the Medly Member was released, those one time purchases were gone. However, this app is such high quality and the sounds and loops they add are very much worth it. Therefore, I bought the Member, and I am VERY pleased. I highly recommend this app, and even without purchasing all the Membership, you can still have a lot of fun.
Medly best music maker
by sans-ationalguy on 2019/03/30 18:49
I downloaded this app a while ago and I love it, one of my songs on SoundCloud has almost a hundred views, I never thought I was going to be good at making music but I am pretty good, but I didn’t know this until now, I’m trying to be a member and get better instruments and I have a visa gift card and there is 15 dollars left on it and as I was trying to make the monthly payment it wouldn’t accept my card, I know that I didn’t use it when I had 15 dollars left and it just won’t let me use the money to become a member, but that’s the only negative thing I have to say about the app, I really recommend getting the app
Great except......
by Emoji🙂 on 2018/12/22 18:20
100% unintuitive. Many of the features have to be “discovered”, if you know what I mean. But once you explore for a few hours it’s really fun!!! I suggest starting by trying to compose “Americano”, then maybe part of “The Greatest Show” or “Rewrite the Stars”. Then once you have the hang of it, compose your own songs. Other than lack of intuitiveness, it’s a really great app for making great music!!! Update: I am currently working on three TGS songs. I still love this app and I love it more and more every time I play!! I don’t know why people complain about the music being too quiet, cause I had to turn DOWN my music because it was blasting my ears off on low volume!!! I also have no complaints about the subscription (Since some people use this app professionally) because I wouldn’t have been able to make any in app purchases(disabled). I legit don’t know why people complain. The only con is that it’s not exactly intuitive. But they do have a handbook in the settings. See the gear when viewing sections, tap it, and at the very top there’s a book icon. That’s where more detailed information is located. Oh dang this got long fast....
Solution!
by SorryBut... on 2019/02/08 04:09
Edit: I just want to say, I’ve found a way around the synthesizer problem. If you want to know, I just take two different videos of the same song: One of all the instruments except the synthesizer, and one with only the synthesizer. I then put them together in iMovie, and just raise the volume of the synthesizer video (audio works too). Now that I found a solution, I’ll admit that I never stopped using this app, and I never want to. Even though I thought I’d never get past this problem, I made new songs and realized I still treasure this app a lot. So, I’m still using Medly, and found a way to make it work. ❤️
Keeps bugging up
by Jdjejehdud on 2018/01/24 02:55
This is great app to make music on (if you pay) but the more I use it, the more it pisses me off. I can’t just relax on making music because when you play the music, all kinds of glitches would happen. Some notes won’t start, some notes won’t stop, and usually I would fix it by stopping the song and playing again. It used to work the first time, but now, more often, it would take me 5-10 tries for the music to actually play correctly. To add to the fun, the line that is SUPPOSED to follow the music will now jump to the middle of the page or just not show up at all. This app can’t be a four if I can’t make music without me trying to throw my phone across the room. PLEASE FIX SO I ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING WITH THIS APP THAT I HAVE ALSO PAID FOR!!!
Why pay? (Keep reading till end) edited
by Jason2730 on 2019/03/21 17:23
Why do we have to pay for the instruments, why can’t you just make it so you only have to pay once. instead, i would have to pay $5 a month. At least there is a yearly option. I have better things to get with my money, also, why can’t you make some of the instruments better? ALL of the mediocre instruments are in the starter pack! I would really like better instruments without having to pay Other than that, this app is pretty good, it is relatively easy to make music, you can automation, choose what instrument you want, choose the beat length, you can do all kinds of things! But for now, I will give this a 4-star⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Good synths, very cheap workstation
by Reykjanes Jane on 2018/02/23 03:22
This app has great synths! I love the variety of sounds provided. However, there is also a massive pool of “mix and match” chords available. It takes away from the creativity aspect of making electronically based music! You can practically pitch an entire track from what’s just provided! It’s not really a music “maker”. Its a decent DAW, but with absolutely horrible controlling. It’s so hard to create melodies! The solution to said problem seems to be by publishing pre-made chords for users to add to “their” tracks. On top of that, applicable effects to the synths provided are very minimal, and you cannot bear a preview of the synth you’re going to add to the track! It’s so time consuming to insert every individual sample. It would seriously make things more user friendly by providing a playback feature.
Amazing App, Want More Features
by Chansante on 2019/07/06 01:15
First off, out of all the music apps I’ve tried, this one is by far the best. It is EXTREMELY intuitive. I decided to buy the membership (which is shockingly affordable by the way) very quickly. There are a few things this app needs before it reaches perfection, but the most important of those things, in my opinion, is time signatures. That’s my number one request. If you aren’t working on it already, please add options for time signatures other than 4/4; it would immensely increase the utility of the app. You’d make me a subscriber for so much longer, maybe even for life.
An amazing app
by HuskyPlayz10059 on 2018/10/07 16:24
Taking in the fact that this is an app on mobile makes this an amazing app to use when producing music. Not only does this app allow creators to construct their own melodies with a very large variety of instruments and music clips, it also allows music producers to add their own clips through the Import option in-app. On top of this all, the additional collections that creators can purchase add so much more life and creativity into soundtracks and the purchases are very worth the price. Overall, this app is a very good one and would recommend it to anyone who wishes to pursue music production with only a phone.
Great update, BUT!
by Jbernard1 on 2018/12/14 18:14
I love these two new packs; I’ve been anticipating arcade ever since it’s teaser. However, I was wondering if it could be bought permanently. Like other packs, you could buy them (master pack, orchestral, etc.) and they were with you forever. I don’t want to pay annual subscriptions for two packs, with more to come. While the idea is nice that you get new content every month, as long as you’re subscribed, I’d like the option to remain where you can buy certain groups of instruments in packs. Again, love the new update. The 8-bit noises are great and the Christmas pack was a pleasant surprise. ❤️
Amazing music production app, great for first-timers
by saipansailor on 2018/08/24 17:00
I've never attempted to produce music before, but I decided to try this app out and once I started experimenting with everything I started to finally get into a sort of flow state where all the sounds started to just come together. The UI is pretty straightforward and the app is pretty easy to understand and use. If you want to take a first step towards music producing but don't want to buy crazy expensive programs, this is the app you'll want to check out. The basic set that it comes with is alrighty, but the fun really starts once you buy more instruments.
Good interface, one annoying bug
by INDIEGAMELOVER on 2019/05/03 03:17
I just got medley, and I was able to make a decent song pretty quickly. There’s one really annoying thing, though. I tried to make a new album. I changed the name and then wanted the change the artwork, though the presets looked really nice. I had my own custom album art saved in my photos, and I had let it access those same photos, but it wouldn’t let me change the artwork to anything besides the presets. I even tried restarting my iPad and it still didn’t work. If this is something where you have to get a membership to change the artwork, that really should’ve been made clear.
Music creation in the palm of your hand
by AlyssaizBeast on 2019/06/27 04:49
I have been using Medly for roughly a year and a half. As a music lover it is truly fantastic to be able to create at home or on the go. The frequent update of new packs is wonderful. There is lots of variety and the app as a whole definitely deserves five stars in my opinion. The only suggestion I would have would be to potentially have some further editing options on the sounds themselves in the future. To be able to personalize the music even more. Overall I am in love with this app and I am a weekly user. Thank you for creating this!
Suggestions
by Bladerunner1105 on 2018/07/11 01:48
I personally love this app and use it a lot in my free time. I have made some pretty cool songs. There are some suggestions I have. First, add a way to change the scale. I never really use the pentatonic scale but a major scale or something would be helpful. Also, add 3/4 Time. If I saw these changes made this would easily be my favorite app. Keep up the good work! Edit: Definitely pickup this app. Crazy to see that my suggestions were actually implemented! I personally have created 85 songs in the app and can’t wait for the next update. A way to change time signature would be nice.
After Huge 4.0 Medly Update
by Jonaton876 on 2018/01/01 15:27
After the huge 4.0 Medly update, there have been a lot bugs and annoying crashes. Like every time I use a vocal loop from the Jungle pack, Medly always crashes on me and its really annoying me. So, lets just hope that you fix all of these bugs and crashes. And maybe adding more vocals to the app in later updates would make me happier. I mean, the bugs and crashes are all I really hate about this app but in my opinion, its still one of THE easiest and best music developers out there. Keep the hard work and you’ll gain great potential in this app👍🏼👍🏼
One question
by Mean Girls LL on 2018/06/27 23:32
I just downloaded this app because I have an endless pile of songs that I wrote over the years and have been recording my vocals on Voice Recording forever. But I thought it was finally time that I professionalize my music. I don’t have any instrumental talent as far as creating a beat that matches my song unless I create a beat on my guitar, but not all of my songs pair up with guitar sounds. So my question is will I have to design the background music or will it pick up on the tune of my singing. As long as it creates a beat for me, I can customize it just fine, but there’s no way I could create instrumentals and sounds on my own.
PLEASE READ
by Zachary Austin on 2019/05/15 02:37
Ever since the ChillStep update I have had trouble with making songs that use instruments that are related to ChillStep. When I open the songs that use some of the instruments and try to play it, it eventually will stop while it’s still playing and the app crashes and it’s happened every time. I don’t want to delete the app and reinstall it because I would lose everything I’m working on so if you could try to see if there’s anything you could do that would be awesome. Other than that I really love this app!!
Amazing but...
by Ethan T Davis on 2019/06/02 03:22
I love this app to death and I have made some pretty good (in my opinion) music, but after a few years of dedicated use, I do have some suggestions etc. 1. The ability to stack audio in a single bar; So let’s say you make an audio that is only two whole notes long, and there are another 2 available for use. In order to fill those notes, you need to re record the whole thing. Unless there is already a way to do this that I’ve missed, then that would be cool. 2. When you exit the app, the music doesn’t stop (pure awesomeness), but the app fritzes out after a couple of seconds, then crashes. This didn’t used to be a problem, but on later versions it has been. 3. Exporting: As of lately the app also crashes when I try to export my songs. Also the ability to export songs as video to the photo album. Otherwise my favorite app for many years; and I completely understand and agree with the decision to have a payed membership for revenue. Keep up the good work! -Ethan
Musical Update problem
by Mr.Killjoy911 on 2019/01/05 10:32
I’ve purchased this app with a whole bunch of the instruments included. But now the new music with the Arcade and Christmas pack, you want me to pay monthly on them? Why can’t I purchase the pack in full and have it FOREVER? Before, you were able to do that and I’m still using the music packs I’ve bought, except the arcade and Christmas pack you want me to pay monthly and or yearly. I’ve had this app for over 3 years enjoying all the music I’ve purchased and now monthly payments are becoming an issue. When will this be removed? I want to purchase the new packs PERMANENTLY. Not a monthly/yearly payment. 😑
Great, but I need to ask...
by Ssundee Lover 156 on 2018/12/17 22:21
I love the app! I’ve been using it for about a year now! The instruments are amazing and unique. Ever since the latest update with the arcade and festive instruments were added, I wanted to try them. BUT! Then I noticed I couldn’t buy the instruments separately like I always do. So now I apparently have to pay for a membership to try out 2 different genres of instruments while I payed the same for about 3 or four genres before the update. Please make both the arcade and festive genres to where they can be purchased separately. If it already is separately purchasable without having to pay for a membership, please tell me. Thank you in advance. Keep up the good work!

I used to love this app, and I used it all the time. I bought all the packs because I was really having fun and I wanted more instruments. I was excited when more instruments were released, but was greatly disappointed when I realized that you needed to become a member to use them, which wasn’t cheap. Why add a subscription when users already have to pay for half of the packs?

Concern
by Mrbdog30469 on 2019/07/18 08:49
The app is nice. I personally have my complaints here and there but that’s not the problem. I decided to try the 7 day free trial and afterwards decided it wasn’t for me. However when I went to cancel my subscription, it tried to take me to the apple app store which then gave me the “Fail to load App Store” How am I supposed to cancel now? Personally I fee as if you guys need to have a way to cancel FROM THE APP or at least have a link or something to allow such a thing. Also if any of the Devs wanna...ya know, help me out here I’d very much appreciate it. >.>
Please connect to different devices
by 😡 MY MONEY!!! on 2019/07/17 07:11
Please connect to Game Center or let it be possible to make an account because I made a really nice song, it’s on my iPad but I want it on my phone. I’m getting a new iPad and it’s painful to throw away the song and it’s really long so it’s going to take me ages to copy it on my new iPad.

Good for working around ideas.
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
A Good Start to Music Production...Not Perfect
by Colderbo - Ben on 2019/07/14 10:56
In essence, Medly is a good app. It’s a great place to start your path of music production, and it provides a lot of opportunities in trying different instruments, styles, rhythms, and so on. It has plenty of reasons to check it out, but as someone who has been using this app for almost two years, I think it’s fair to say that I have a grounded basis in my critiques of this app, which there certainly are. Aside from all the positives and venues to try new things in the music production community via this app, the negatives can really hinder your experience and make it less enjoyable. Firstly, there is a surplus of obnoxious glitches, many of which require you to restart the app every few minutes just to keep using it. Then of course, there’s the annoying subscription fee to try new instruments, which would be acceptable if this was not a beginner music production app. If it was more professional and generally much larger and of a higher standard of quality, I could understand this, but this app is not quite at that level yet, and is better off as a platform to introduce people to creating music. Moreover, most of the critiques I personally have involve a lack of opportunity. Some of my most common complaints arise from restrictions that honestly shouldn’t exist at this point in the production of this app. Making music feels constricted when you can only use 4/4 time signatures and only have a few registers to work with. I would find this app much more enjoyable if I had access to more opportunities in creating distinguished music: 3/4 and 5/4 time signatures, another register above or below for higher/lower pitched songs, the ability to speed up and slow down the tempo throughout the song - mostly basic music theory concepts that I feel should’ve been incorporated by now. In fact, if these issues and restrictions were addressed - if just a few, I believe I could easily look past some of the minor inconveniences from subscription fees and the glitches, as it would make the experience much greater for both experts and beginners. Ultimately, it’s a good app, but if I’m blatantly honest, it’s not much more than that. Until these new opportunities are incorporated or addressed, I can only see this app as “just good.”
Amazing

I love the app it’s amazing you can make all kinds of music in it!
Free to One Time Purchase to Member
by Euphoria MoonShine on 2019/07/11 13:56
I got this app a little while ago, on the hunt for any music app besides the classic Garage Band, to make music and explore a lot of things without using a computer. This app does exactly that. I was so inspired I ended up buying the Band Pack for around $9.99, which was a great investment. I was pleased with the sounds and loops I received. Once the Medly Member was released, those one time purchases were gone. However, this app is such high quality and the sounds and loops they add are very much worth it. Therefore, I bought the Member, and I am VERY pleased. I highly recommend this app, and even without purchasing all the Membership, you can still have a lot of fun.
AMAZING!
by Zxues on 2019/07/11 01:01
Real review from a real user. This app has sparked my creativity. The updates are frequent and improve in quality each and every time. I have no complaints! But I would in the future maybe like to see an expansion of mastering or eq (if its even possible) to make our final products louder and more professional on soundcloud or releases in general! Other than that thank you for giving me the ability to create again! ❤️ And dont stop on the sound packs! Keep em coming! ❤️❤️ Maybe some Riddim/Dubstep/DnB packs also!
Meh, I have a complaint.
by Ahhr music: The ANMOLYS on 2019/07/10 23:35
Man I gotta tell you this is a FANTASTIC app. But the fact that you have to buy EVERYTHING is frustrating. Can we have free stuff too?
Great

Watered Down Garageband
by chickensoup213 on 2019/07/10 16:50
I like this app and all, and it’s how I started writing music and putting it on SoundCloud, but why bother with this when Garageband is completely free and has more to offer? Don’t get me wrong, Garageband isn’t perfect by any means, but its more flushed out than this and is more well put together. So there isn’t any reason not to download this app but I feel as if people who truly want to get into music should go for Garageband instead
Hardstyle pack in August maybe??
by Codexatrix on 2019/07/09 14:25
To be honest a lot of the people using Medly are making electronic music, and one genre that is really awesome is Hardstyle, plz add it, (or at least just some instruments and screeches for it)!!!
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.
The only problem is the audio in he starter pack
by XgamebattlrX on 2019/07/07 18:32
The audio in the starter pack is amazing, it just lags a little bit and for some reason it’s (barely) faster than all my beats so it kinda sounds off beat, so could you probably text that out and fix that? AMAZING APP BY THE WAY KEEP IT UP!!
Nice app, a few requests
by Ruegrall on 2019/07/07 01:19
Very easy to lay down some cool tracks. I would even subscribe if it weren’t for the lack of a few things: 1. Non-standard time signatures like 5/4 or 7/8. Can’t do a remix of Holst’s Mars in 4/4 or 12/8 and have it maintain the same intensity. I’ve written stuff in 13/8. 2. Being able to copy multiple columns or several columns of a track at once. 3. Add a button to take you all the way to the end instead of having to scroll if you go back to the beginning for something. 4. User defined names for tracks 5. User defined names for columns. That way you can flag sections, particularly if your work is 100 columns long. 6. Max columns to 256. 144 is an odd and somewhat arbitrary number. Add all that stuff and you’ve got another subscriber. Otherwise I’m limited to a lot of straight 4 or 12/8 grooves which is ok but can be mundane. Great app otherwise!
Nice music maker app
by Jeremyewhite on 2019/07/06 21:56
I like this app a lot, but I really wish there was a feature so that you could record in something by hand instead of only being able to use what is already there. It would be great if this feature worked by using a MixPad to record your line into it, that would make my job a hell of a lot easier.
Amazing App, Want More Features
by Chansante on 2019/07/06 01:15
First off, out of all the music apps I’ve tried, this one is by far the best. It is EXTREMELY intuitive. I decided to buy the membership (which is shockingly affordable by the way) very quickly. There are a few things this app needs before it reaches perfection, but the most important of those things, in my opinion, is time signatures. That’s my number one request. If you aren’t working on it already, please add options for time signatures other than 4/4; it would immensely increase the utility of the app. You’d make me a subscriber for so much longer, maybe even for life.
Luv it

I’m finna tryina get them accordion and banjo and harmonica and harpsichord and Organ sounds my homeslice breadslice dawg. Legitimately though, I would actually really appreciate it if you would add those sounds. You should also add the ability to record your own sounds and use them as an instrument instead of just adding audio to the song. Great app! I use it all the time but PLEASE add those instruments! BRUH Hehe haha boi
Cuts my music
by TechnologyMaster8 on 2019/07/02 13:57
It puts random cuts in my music when I try to save or share it. Fix this now or I will delete Medly - and give up on my electronic music career! I cannot find another good app for making EDM music! Trust me, I’m REALLY GOOD! And it sometimes glitches and when I start to test-play an unfinished song, it is quiet for one measure and then just SKIPS to the next!

Medly isn’t as great as it used to be…
by Nakao123 on 2019/06/29 22:28
(This is an updated review) I used to really love Medly, but after the updates, I really didn’t enjoy Medly as much as I used to. All the packs are geared towards those with a taste in very basic modern pop-focused music. While I bought the first packs (classical, house, jazz, etc.), those packs are no longer available to buy. Others can’t use any synthetic instruments that sound like actual instruments other than piano. Also, the packs feel a little rushed. While there’s always an instrument or two that’s very unique, I really feel like a lot of the instruments are just slight variations of a previous instrument. In addition, there is still no way to compose songs with a time signature of 3/4. While I can still compose music with the same packs I used to own, I feel like Medly isn’t improving- especially if you didn’t buy the old packs. Also, I can’t export songs that I made when I had a membership containing member instruments. This is irritating and prevents me from listening to my own music. Medly was incredibly useful- it’s a great, easy-to-use system- but I feel like a wonderful platform has been thrown away by the new Membership system. If the packs were more diverse and detailed (perhaps improvements on old jazz and classical instruments as well as newer ones, maybe some traditional instruments, some synth that isn’t steeped in the rigid styles of modern pop), songs with member instruments were exportable, and the 3/4 problem was fixed, Medly would be wonderful again. (Perhaps a profitable way to purchase individual packs for those who don’t want a full membership would be nice, but the main problems I mentioned are the biggest issues.) Thank you for listening! Please restore Medly!
Took money
by liaNova on 2019/06/28 23:58
I accidently payed for a subscription i didnt want, 40 dollars was taken and there’s no way to get it back, i’m very furious and i tried canceling the subcriptiom, im stuck with something i dont wanna pay for, and i want my 40 dollars back.
Amazing but
by pwkkwjsuhbobsyivsksjtc on 2019/06/28 16:38
This app is amazing, I only have one complaint. I don’t want to pay a membership and would rather pay a one time fee.
I do like this app a lot but why have almost all music member exclusive?
by Yungyup on 2019/06/27 15:21
This app is awesome yet I do have one problem with it, almost all but the starter pack cost money that (as a kid) can’t use without getting in trouble with my parents for using their credit card XD, but getting back on track, I think maybe make some genres of music free to use
Music creation in the palm of your hand
by AlyssaizBeast on 2019/06/27 04:49
I have been using Medly for roughly a year and a half. As a music lover it is truly fantastic to be able to create at home or on the go. The frequent update of new packs is wonderful. There is lots of variety and the app as a whole definitely deserves five stars in my opinion. The only suggestion I would have would be to potentially have some further editing options on the sounds themselves in the future. To be able to personalize the music even more. Overall I am in love with this app and I am a weekly user. Thank you for creating this!
Used to be great, then it went downhill!
by HydraYeet on 2019/06/26 00:08
I loved this app. This music creator was great and I didn’t mind the Medly exclusive. Before, I had bought packs with money instead of the medly exclusive. For example the jazz pack, and the classical pack. Now I enter medly for the first time in a while and now I have NO ACCESS TO ANYTHING. I bought all the other packs and have no intent to spent money on a subscription. I’m writing this because I paid money before for these packs and now have to pay more since everything is medly exclusive. Please respond i find this odd.
Incredible
by tya_fx4 on 2019/06/25 02:20
Without a doubt the most incredible mobile program for music production! Simple and easy to learn interface, great sound bank, perfect sample importing interface. Could not ask for a better app. (And most definetly worth the subscription)
Sad

Cool.
by GhostlySnow on 2019/06/24 04:37
Great app. Something I find a little disappointing is that 3 octaves is very limiting and I wish there were more octaves available. The app also crashes every time I try to export a song.
Request
by LazyBonesPapyrus on 2019/06/22 05:04
So I’m making a game (undertale fangame) and I was hoping that you could add a megalo pack? It’s a Megalovania soundfont and strings and bass and more. Thanks, if you add it. Just a request, you don’t have to add it.
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.
Why
by MEGAKAT64 on 2019/06/19 15:29
I like this game but like 99.9% of everything in it costs money. I don’t have money to pay for the good stuff! Please make more free stuff and or make some of the stuff already in it free
Easy to Use ^^
by CatsSayMeow1 on 2019/06/19 01:27
I’ve been using this app for over a year and I love it! It’s simple and easy to make music on this app. Though, I have a suggestion, is there anyway to change the beats per measure from 4/4 to 3/4? If not, it’d be pretty cool to add that feature. Thank you!
Features...
by KDaWG_V2 on 2019/06/18 16:55
I’m a little sad that I can’t have all the cool stuff or it would be 5 star but good overall.
One bug
by Jhcvdvjnhdcj on 2019/06/18 08:21
This app is great for brainstorming. But just one bug... if I start from the last bar in my project and replay it, some of my notes won’t play. I was wondering if there is a way to share my project with your development team, since this is an easily replicable issue. I haven’t become a member yet, and currently using the latest version of Medly as of 6 days ago, with an iPhone 6S with iOS 12.3.1. Great app for quickly getting ideas down, though. Gonna use it more often :)
Hey Medly...
by TheKuleFoxThatArtz on 2019/06/16 21:23
Sorry for bothering you again, but I was wondering if there will be a chance you could add Overdriven Guitar soundfont? I’m know you’ll probably say no but I’m just making sure.

I’ve been using Medly for quite some time now and have even published a few songs through the app. Smooth, simple controls and a large variety of sounds/loops. My only complaint: The Dubstep sound pack is moderately underwhelming. When you compare the what you can do in Dubstep to some of the other packs, it pales in comparison. Would love if the devs would expand on the Dubstep pack or add another pack tailored to that genre!

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.🤩🤘👏
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.
Great app
by sparkle unicon on 2019/06/11 01:40
It is a great resource but holds you back a bit. But that is not a problem half the time and you figure out by doing that you don’t want to do you find what you really need. For songwriters it is sometimes a pain but for people who are just looking for a beat it’s amazing I do recommend it for most everyone.👍🏽 I personally do love it it’s amazing all the resources it has I could stay on it for hours and it makes you think I also recommend it for children. It allows them to think and work their brains while doing something fun.
Lol u shud make it all FREE
by lostproductivity on 2019/06/10 19:57
Just kidding. As a former developer I know it’s like pulling teeth making “munny” with freeboids. Well played with the new update and I look forward to trying it out.
Great until membership
by mculee on 2019/06/07 19:50
Medly is the perfect daw for learning music production, this is because of the simplicity of all of the instruments And the creativity the app requires. I loved it until one day when I logged on and wanted to spend money for a new pack. It was the future bass pack and it looked amazing then I was met with an unpleasant surprise, medly membership. I might delete the app but even worse for you guys you just lost money that I would have spent. RESIST THE GREED if it is attached to the membership DO NOT BUY IT. Now medly I have no issues with a membership service if you allow separate purchases as well but it is wrong to lock it all down. Thank you for listening to my ted talk.
Amazing!

Slight issue with new update
by Sherry Belchah on 2019/06/04 17:53
Been using app for a while and have long been waiting for an undo button. Unfortunately the bar these options are put on cover an important area of the screen and won’t move. Maybe if it was in an expandable button itself? If possible I’d request some enhancement on audio editing, I’m not good enough to start recording at the right time when the music stops and it’s sometimes difficult to get the audio to sync with the beat
Very good
by dascooby on 2019/06/02 23:02
The app can make lots of good stuff but one of my problems is that I’m not sure if I can purchase individual instruments. I’ve been able to do it before.
Amazing but...
by Ethan T Davis on 2019/06/02 03:22
I love this app to death and I have made some pretty good (in my opinion) music, but after a few years of dedicated use, I do have some suggestions etc. 1. The ability to stack audio in a single bar; So let’s say you make an audio that is only two whole notes long, and there are another 2 available for use. In order to fill those notes, you need to re record the whole thing. Unless there is already a way to do this that I’ve missed, then that would be cool. 2. When you exit the app, the music doesn’t stop (pure awesomeness), but the app fritzes out after a couple of seconds, then crashes. This didn’t used to be a problem, but on later versions it has been. 3. Exporting: As of lately the app also crashes when I try to export my songs. Also the ability to export songs as video to the photo album. Otherwise my favorite app for many years; and I completely understand and agree with the decision to have a payed membership for revenue. Keep up the good work! -Ethan
A solution to the 1 problem
by dfgetgte on 2019/06/01 15:21
Every thing in Medly is fantastic and awesome I like the leads and drums but there is a problem, and I know that past reviews you found out this problem. The problem is lack of sounds and loops. You see, loops are things that people in Medly desire, and the sounds of different genres which sparkle so great, EVERYBODY wants them. So to solve the solution make a few more free sounds or packs and make loops available. Then when you fix this problem your 4.6 star rating will go up 4.8. Think about it make Medly great again...
5 stars to cancel out a past 1 Star review I gave

I like the old medly better, the one where you can buy the sounds you want, I don’t trust this new monthly thing. Well I’m not subscribing, I guess is less money for medly. Bring back the old medly
Great app
by Luigi#1⭐️⭐️⭐️ on 2019/05/29 04:30
I have a few requests. Could you maybe put the time in the up right corner while we’re creating Medlys? I’m tired of having to go back to look at the time. I could get in trouble if I loose track of the time. I also read a different review and you said that it costs a lot of money to make this app. And that if you couldn’t make money it wouldn’t exist. What if you just added a few more free sound packs and made the rest of them cost money? If you’re doing fine raising money for Medly, there is no reason why you couldn’t make just two or three packs free because me and probably a lot of other people are tired of the only free sound pack. The Starter Pack. A lot more people would download this app. This is my favorite app. I just think you could really make it better if you just give us more instruments to use. Think of all of the 7,000,000,000 people on the planet that would want you to do this. Do it for the world.
Help Please
by WestleyyeltseW on 2019/05/28 12:16

Great for beginners but is still somewhat limiting
by Chad (Gr1d_Labels) on 2019/05/27 02:53
This app is amazing. I am able to make music to my hearts content. There are a multitude of instruments that you can mess around with. I do have a few suggestions for future updates 1: remove the limits of 24 instruments per song. I ran into this issue and i am currently stuck. 2: allow audio clips to be altered with the automated pitch tool. This allows for extra effects tp be made with the loops and for self recorded audio clips to have more of a range of applicability 3: PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE add an EQ option. Make it as an extra tab in the options menu when you tap on the instrument. This will allow for people to explore the world of sound design and make more unique music. 4: this is more of a bug than a suggestion. Whenever i have two audio clips back to back, there is a very slight but noticeable pause between the two cells even though i have linked the two cells and hit the continue from last cell button. Can you please make a feature to where you can make an audio cell take up 8 bars. It would take up the place of two cells so that all of the other loops won’t repeat 8 times.

What happens to the auto mastering?
by 56wrty329 on 2019/05/26 01:49
Ever since the latest update my songs sound way different because of the new auto Mastering preset that you put on the app. My songs have way too much bass now in the side chaining sounds off to me, please revert to previous auto mastering presets for next update! I do not want to have to fix all my songs. I like the new sounds though

Good app, terrible content. Unless you’re willing to spend money, there is absolutely no good sound or anything to that matter of fact that you can use.
You’re bullying me
by ihavenosoulat46 on 2019/05/25 15:31
I hate this app cause I’m bad at it. I’m a musical genius and everything I do sounds bad. I think it all traces back to my instability because of latest divorce. Anyway, have a good day, and be glad you have a life.
Awesome

I really love this simple and easy app!! I actually prefer it over garage band because it’s simpler

This is really frustrating. If I want to click the different types of beats I made it doesn’t let me! I have to click it multiple times for it to play. It’s late.
This app is not working like i am telling it to!

So i was making a song and i was trying to move this block and i kept on either making it longer or selecting all. Can u fix it? Thx
Great app

This is great, though I am just a beginner and the stuff is sort of hard for me, but I love it I love making music.
It’s okay but something is wrong

This app is great! But, would you mind if you can import music in for free?

More instruments
by Daindune on 2019/05/15 03:03
The App Is Awesome, But it needs more instruments. Like a Celesta, Vibraphone, A chorused Electric Piano, Harpsichord, A Timpani, And an Oboe. Please, The new pack can be Called” Other Instruments. Thank You.
PLEASE READ
by Zachary Austin on 2019/05/15 02:37
Ever since the ChillStep update I have had trouble with making songs that use instruments that are related to ChillStep. When I open the songs that use some of the instruments and try to play it, it eventually will stop while it’s still playing and the app crashes and it’s happened every time. I don’t want to delete the app and reinstall it because I would lose everything I’m working on so if you could try to see if there’s anything you could do that would be awesome. Other than that I really love this app!!

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!
Confusion
by ClawGuru on 2019/05/10 14:42
To clarify, when one purchases the monthly or yearly subscription is every pack unlocked? Or does it require a payment of $5 to unlock every pack.
I like it but there are a few small problems
by Lightspeed8903 on 2019/05/07 14:38
This app is great for anybody looking to get into making music. I got it as a way to write down and save riffs I wrote on my guitar, so I bought the rock pack to see what the electric guitars sounded like and I’m kinda disappointed. They’re all simulated rather than sampled, unlike the acoustic guitar sounds. Everything else sounds great, though.

Best app for music but one thing
by -Frostwall- on 2019/05/05 22:00
I love this app. It’s simple, and I’ve made good music. But one thing. Why can’t I save the file to my phone as an mp3 file? There are a couple sites out there for music that require mp3 and I can’t upload to them. Maybe if that could be an option soon? Still a really good app and sounds great even without buying anything!
Amazing
by TianIdontcareJac on 2019/05/03 20:20
This is by far the best free mobile DAW/Music Maker. This helps me put down my ideas for FL Studio while I’m on the road. A nice addition would be synth where I can create my own sounds. I honestly think Medly could be a real DAW with added features.
Still my favorite
by 狐こりんね on 2019/05/03 16:05
Been using this app since whatever version was around for ios8 and it keeps getting better. Compared to some other music apps it doesn't take up much memory, even with 500+ songs. It's my absolute favorite app to quickly capture ideas. I would like to be able to change the time signature or change the tempo and key of individual loops though. I also would like to be able to purchase packs separately for keeps like they were previously available.
Good interface, one annoying bug
by INDIEGAMELOVER on 2019/05/03 03:17
I just got medley, and I was able to make a decent song pretty quickly. There’s one really annoying thing, though. I tried to make a new album. I changed the name and then wanted the change the artwork, though the presets looked really nice. I had my own custom album art saved in my photos, and I had let it access those same photos, but it wouldn’t let me change the artwork to anything besides the presets. I even tried restarting my iPad and it still didn’t work. If this is something where you have to get a membership to change the artwork, that really should’ve been made clear.
5 stars!
by ItsCAlex on 2019/05/01 11:15
I first got medly because a friend recommended it to me. I used use garage band, but this sounds so much better! The best part is that the membership is really cheap! If there was 10 stars, I’d give medly all 10.

AWSOME!!!

This app is Amazing! Not only can I make music, but I can also import it into my animation software and make animations with music! Many thanks to all of the developers! I only wish that I had the many other musical instruments to further improve my music though .😢
Amazing

The best app for aspiring (and professional) musicians
by shamaezaheer on 2019/04/16 00:18
I have used numerous apps to achieve what I needed - make beautiful music with little (read none) knowledge of music theory. Medly is the only app that offers the intuitiveness, as well as the breadth of features to permit anyone to make amazing music. Try it, you will be blown away! Keep up the great work, guys!
THE. BEST. MUSIC. MAKING. APP.
by Prof. McYeet on 2019/04/14 21:26
Thanks for making this app. It’s better than the rest. It can always be improved, but it’s already just better than the rest, hands down. I’ve been using Medly for a while now, and I love it. Keep up the great work! Now, for some suggestions. 😂 I would LOVE to have a Glitch Hop pack added soon! It’s my favorite kind of music, and I would really enjoy having a pack solely dedicated to that subgenre of electronic music. Maybe add some Voxes to that pack, too, as Glitch Hop uses Vox a lot. Also, a feature I would love to see (and that I’ve wanted for a long time now) is a Tempo Change option. It really would be cool to change speed during a song, and I think many people would agree! Anyway, that’s all from me. Thank you for your time and for making (and continuing to develop) an amazing app!
Let us be able to purchase sets
by Theluckyemerald on 2019/04/13 20:51
This would be good for people that want to specialize in certain sounds. I was thinking maybe each sound should cost 2.99 to 4.99.
Subscription
by Pirie.L on 2019/04/13 15:49
I love this app a lot, but there is an issue. I have tried and tried, but I simply can’t cancel my subscription, no matter how hard I try. Personally, I think that when you delete the app, the subscription should be cancelled. Please try to fix it.
Once I got this that day I couldn’t stop.
by some guy who likes your app on 2019/04/13 03:31
Ever since I got this in 2015 (4 years I’ve had this app!) I couldn’t stop using it and I’m still using it today. I sometimes get bored on what instruments I could use. But since I wanted to make a review on this masterpiece of a music maker I wanted to ask a small request.... Is it possible if you can make a horror kind of instrument pack? I have been into soundtracks for horror games and always wanted to compose my own for a big animation I plan on working on. If you can do that it would be awesome!😁👍 I absolutely love this app so much and it’s new stuff. My most favorite one is the arcade!👍👍👍

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 😆
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
Very great app but...
by ConstantlyCrashingAppslol on 2019/02/19 13:39
I would guarantee a large quantity of people that use this app are still on school. Making a subscription service completely ruins everything for most people that don’t have jobs (the people that are in school). I preferred paying 10 dollars for each pack of sounds. I get you guys want to make it “easier” but I don’t see how it’s easier, and I’d guarantee you guys would make more money if you just went back to packs (especially if a new pack is introduced every second Tuesday of each month). Sorry to say 💀 I love the app but no type of subscriptions pull me in regardless of what they have to offer. I’m not hating on the app, nor the subscriptions, I really love the app.. I just don’t think subscriptions are the way to go. When I first saw new packs I was like “yay I’ll definitely buy them!” Just to come to a realization you now need a subscription to use them.
Great app
by Luigi#1⭐️⭐️⭐️ on 2019/05/29 04:30
I have a few requests. Could you maybe put the time in the up right corner while we’re creating Medlys? I’m tired of having to go back to look at the time. I could get in trouble if I loose track of the time. I also read a different review and you said that it costs a lot of money to make this app. And that if you couldn’t make money it wouldn’t exist. What if you just added a few more free sound packs and made the rest of them cost money? If you’re doing fine raising money for Medly, there is no reason why you couldn’t make just two or three packs free because me and probably a lot of other people are tired of the only free sound pack. The Starter Pack. A lot more people would download this app. This is my favorite app. I just think you could really make it better if you just give us more instruments to use. Think of all of the 7,000,000,000 people on the planet that would want you to do this. Do it for the world.
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
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Great for beginners but is still somewhat limiting
by Chad (Gr1d_Labels) on 2019/05/27 02:53
This app is amazing. I am able to make music to my hearts content. There are a multitude of instruments that you can mess around with. I do have a few suggestions for future updates 1: remove the limits of 24 instruments per song. I ran into this issue and i am currently stuck. 2: allow audio clips to be altered with the automated pitch tool. This allows for extra effects tp be made with the loops and for self recorded audio clips to have more of a range of applicability 3: PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE add an EQ option. Make it as an extra tab in the options menu when you tap on the instrument. This will allow for people to explore the world of sound design and make more unique music. 4: this is more of a bug than a suggestion. Whenever i have two audio clips back to back, there is a very slight but noticeable pause between the two cells even though i have linked the two cells and hit the continue from last cell button. Can you please make a feature to where you can make an audio cell take up 8 bars. It would take up the place of two cells so that all of the other loops won’t repeat 8 times.
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?!
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!!
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.
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.
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! =)
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
Free to One Time Purchase to Member
by Euphoria MoonShine on 2019/07/11 13:56
I got this app a little while ago, on the hunt for any music app besides the classic Garage Band, to make music and explore a lot of things without using a computer. This app does exactly that. I was so inspired I ended up buying the Band Pack for around $9.99, which was a great investment. I was pleased with the sounds and loops I received. Once the Medly Member was released, those one time purchases were gone. However, this app is such high quality and the sounds and loops they add are very much worth it. Therefore, I bought the Member, and I am VERY pleased. I highly recommend this app, and even without purchasing all the Membership, you can still have a lot of fun.
Medly best music maker
by sans-ationalguy on 2019/03/30 18:49
I downloaded this app a while ago and I love it, one of my songs on SoundCloud has almost a hundred views, I never thought I was going to be good at making music but I am pretty good, but I didn’t know this until now, I’m trying to be a member and get better instruments and I have a visa gift card and there is 15 dollars left on it and as I was trying to make the monthly payment it wouldn’t accept my card, I know that I didn’t use it when I had 15 dollars left and it just won’t let me use the money to become a member, but that’s the only negative thing I have to say about the app, I really recommend getting the app
Great except......
by Emoji🙂 on 2018/12/22 18:20
100% unintuitive. Many of the features have to be “discovered”, if you know what I mean. But once you explore for a few hours it’s really fun!!! I suggest starting by trying to compose “Americano”, then maybe part of “The Greatest Show” or “Rewrite the Stars”. Then once you have the hang of it, compose your own songs. Other than lack of intuitiveness, it’s a really great app for making great music!!! Update: I am currently working on three TGS songs. I still love this app and I love it more and more every time I play!! I don’t know why people complain about the music being too quiet, cause I had to turn DOWN my music because it was blasting my ears off on low volume!!! I also have no complaints about the subscription (Since some people use this app professionally) because I wouldn’t have been able to make any in app purchases(disabled). I legit don’t know why people complain. The only con is that it’s not exactly intuitive. But they do have a handbook in the settings. See the gear when viewing sections, tap it, and at the very top there’s a book icon. That’s where more detailed information is located. Oh dang this got long fast....
Solution!
by SorryBut... on 2019/02/08 04:09
Edit: I just want to say, I’ve found a way around the synthesizer problem. If you want to know, I just take two different videos of the same song: One of all the instruments except the synthesizer, and one with only the synthesizer. I then put them together in iMovie, and just raise the volume of the synthesizer video (audio works too). Now that I found a solution, I’ll admit that I never stopped using this app, and I never want to. Even though I thought I’d never get past this problem, I made new songs and realized I still treasure this app a lot. So, I’m still using Medly, and found a way to make it work. ❤️
Keeps bugging up
by Jdjejehdud on 2018/01/24 02:55
This is great app to make music on (if you pay) but the more I use it, the more it pisses me off. I can’t just relax on making music because when you play the music, all kinds of glitches would happen. Some notes won’t start, some notes won’t stop, and usually I would fix it by stopping the song and playing again. It used to work the first time, but now, more often, it would take me 5-10 tries for the music to actually play correctly. To add to the fun, the line that is SUPPOSED to follow the music will now jump to the middle of the page or just not show up at all. This app can’t be a four if I can’t make music without me trying to throw my phone across the room. PLEASE FIX SO I ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING WITH THIS APP THAT I HAVE ALSO PAID FOR!!!
Why pay? (Keep reading till end) edited
by Jason2730 on 2019/03/21 17:23
Why do we have to pay for the instruments, why can’t you just make it so you only have to pay once. instead, i would have to pay $5 a month. At least there is a yearly option. I have better things to get with my money, also, why can’t you make some of the instruments better? ALL of the mediocre instruments are in the starter pack! I would really like better instruments without having to pay Other than that, this app is pretty good, it is relatively easy to make music, you can automation, choose what instrument you want, choose the beat length, you can do all kinds of things! But for now, I will give this a 4-star⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Good synths, very cheap workstation
by Reykjanes Jane on 2018/02/23 03:22
This app has great synths! I love the variety of sounds provided. However, there is also a massive pool of “mix and match” chords available. It takes away from the creativity aspect of making electronically based music! You can practically pitch an entire track from what’s just provided! It’s not really a music “maker”. Its a decent DAW, but with absolutely horrible controlling. It’s so hard to create melodies! The solution to said problem seems to be by publishing pre-made chords for users to add to “their” tracks. On top of that, applicable effects to the synths provided are very minimal, and you cannot bear a preview of the synth you’re going to add to the track! It’s so time consuming to insert every individual sample. It would seriously make things more user friendly by providing a playback feature.
Amazing App, Want More Features
by Chansante on 2019/07/06 01:15
First off, out of all the music apps I’ve tried, this one is by far the best. It is EXTREMELY intuitive. I decided to buy the membership (which is shockingly affordable by the way) very quickly. There are a few things this app needs before it reaches perfection, but the most important of those things, in my opinion, is time signatures. That’s my number one request. If you aren’t working on it already, please add options for time signatures other than 4/4; it would immensely increase the utility of the app. You’d make me a subscriber for so much longer, maybe even for life.
An amazing app
by HuskyPlayz10059 on 2018/10/07 16:24
Taking in the fact that this is an app on mobile makes this an amazing app to use when producing music. Not only does this app allow creators to construct their own melodies with a very large variety of instruments and music clips, it also allows music producers to add their own clips through the Import option in-app. On top of this all, the additional collections that creators can purchase add so much more life and creativity into soundtracks and the purchases are very worth the price. Overall, this app is a very good one and would recommend it to anyone who wishes to pursue music production with only a phone.
Great update, BUT!
by Jbernard1 on 2018/12/14 18:14
I love these two new packs; I’ve been anticipating arcade ever since it’s teaser. However, I was wondering if it could be bought permanently. Like other packs, you could buy them (master pack, orchestral, etc.) and they were with you forever. I don’t want to pay annual subscriptions for two packs, with more to come. While the idea is nice that you get new content every month, as long as you’re subscribed, I’d like the option to remain where you can buy certain groups of instruments in packs. Again, love the new update. The 8-bit noises are great and the Christmas pack was a pleasant surprise. ❤️
Amazing music production app, great for first-timers
by saipansailor on 2018/08/24 17:00
I've never attempted to produce music before, but I decided to try this app out and once I started experimenting with everything I started to finally get into a sort of flow state where all the sounds started to just come together. The UI is pretty straightforward and the app is pretty easy to understand and use. If you want to take a first step towards music producing but don't want to buy crazy expensive programs, this is the app you'll want to check out. The basic set that it comes with is alrighty, but the fun really starts once you buy more instruments.
Good interface, one annoying bug
by INDIEGAMELOVER on 2019/05/03 03:17
I just got medley, and I was able to make a decent song pretty quickly. There’s one really annoying thing, though. I tried to make a new album. I changed the name and then wanted the change the artwork, though the presets looked really nice. I had my own custom album art saved in my photos, and I had let it access those same photos, but it wouldn’t let me change the artwork to anything besides the presets. I even tried restarting my iPad and it still didn’t work. If this is something where you have to get a membership to change the artwork, that really should’ve been made clear.
Music creation in the palm of your hand
by AlyssaizBeast on 2019/06/27 04:49
I have been using Medly for roughly a year and a half. As a music lover it is truly fantastic to be able to create at home or on the go. The frequent update of new packs is wonderful. There is lots of variety and the app as a whole definitely deserves five stars in my opinion. The only suggestion I would have would be to potentially have some further editing options on the sounds themselves in the future. To be able to personalize the music even more. Overall I am in love with this app and I am a weekly user. Thank you for creating this!
Suggestions
by Bladerunner1105 on 2018/07/11 01:48
I personally love this app and use it a lot in my free time. I have made some pretty cool songs. There are some suggestions I have. First, add a way to change the scale. I never really use the pentatonic scale but a major scale or something would be helpful. Also, add 3/4 Time. If I saw these changes made this would easily be my favorite app. Keep up the good work! Edit: Definitely pickup this app. Crazy to see that my suggestions were actually implemented! I personally have created 85 songs in the app and can’t wait for the next update. A way to change time signature would be nice.
After Huge 4.0 Medly Update
by Jonaton876 on 2018/01/01 15:27
After the huge 4.0 Medly update, there have been a lot bugs and annoying crashes. Like every time I use a vocal loop from the Jungle pack, Medly always crashes on me and its really annoying me. So, lets just hope that you fix all of these bugs and crashes. And maybe adding more vocals to the app in later updates would make me happier. I mean, the bugs and crashes are all I really hate about this app but in my opinion, its still one of THE easiest and best music developers out there. Keep the hard work and you’ll gain great potential in this app👍🏼👍🏼
One question
by Mean Girls LL on 2018/06/27 23:32
I just downloaded this app because I have an endless pile of songs that I wrote over the years and have been recording my vocals on Voice Recording forever. But I thought it was finally time that I professionalize my music. I don’t have any instrumental talent as far as creating a beat that matches my song unless I create a beat on my guitar, but not all of my songs pair up with guitar sounds. So my question is will I have to design the background music or will it pick up on the tune of my singing. As long as it creates a beat for me, I can customize it just fine, but there’s no way I could create instrumentals and sounds on my own.
PLEASE READ
by Zachary Austin on 2019/05/15 02:37
Ever since the ChillStep update I have had trouble with making songs that use instruments that are related to ChillStep. When I open the songs that use some of the instruments and try to play it, it eventually will stop while it’s still playing and the app crashes and it’s happened every time. I don’t want to delete the app and reinstall it because I would lose everything I’m working on so if you could try to see if there’s anything you could do that would be awesome. Other than that I really love this app!!
Amazing but...
by Ethan T Davis on 2019/06/02 03:22
I love this app to death and I have made some pretty good (in my opinion) music, but after a few years of dedicated use, I do have some suggestions etc. 1. The ability to stack audio in a single bar; So let’s say you make an audio that is only two whole notes long, and there are another 2 available for use. In order to fill those notes, you need to re record the whole thing. Unless there is already a way to do this that I’ve missed, then that would be cool. 2. When you exit the app, the music doesn’t stop (pure awesomeness), but the app fritzes out after a couple of seconds, then crashes. This didn’t used to be a problem, but on later versions it has been. 3. Exporting: As of lately the app also crashes when I try to export my songs. Also the ability to export songs as video to the photo album. Otherwise my favorite app for many years; and I completely understand and agree with the decision to have a payed membership for revenue. Keep up the good work! -Ethan
Musical Update problem
by Mr.Killjoy911 on 2019/01/05 10:32
I’ve purchased this app with a whole bunch of the instruments included. But now the new music with the Arcade and Christmas pack, you want me to pay monthly on them? Why can’t I purchase the pack in full and have it FOREVER? Before, you were able to do that and I’m still using the music packs I’ve bought, except the arcade and Christmas pack you want me to pay monthly and or yearly. I’ve had this app for over 3 years enjoying all the music I’ve purchased and now monthly payments are becoming an issue. When will this be removed? I want to purchase the new packs PERMANENTLY. Not a monthly/yearly payment. 😑
Great, but I need to ask...
by Ssundee Lover 156 on 2018/12/17 22:21
I love the app! I’ve been using it for about a year now! The instruments are amazing and unique. Ever since the latest update with the arcade and festive instruments were added, I wanted to try them. BUT! Then I noticed I couldn’t buy the instruments separately like I always do. So now I apparently have to pay for a membership to try out 2 different genres of instruments while I payed the same for about 3 or four genres before the update. Please make both the arcade and festive genres to where they can be purchased separately. If it already is separately purchasable without having to pay for a membership, please tell me. Thank you in advance. Keep up the good work!
