The best recording app out there!
by jeudjdu on 2019/07/18 22:51
I just want a few things added to it: Some more vocal effects like an actual LoFi effect, and some more cool sounding effects.
Amazing
by Bruzon64 on 2019/07/18 20:08
Honestly my dream is to become big and every time I’ve tried looking for something that can help me make beats or record it is bad and if you want any kind of good quality you gotta buy some premium thing but this is purely amazing and makes it so much easier to create songs that I like and I made all on my own through the hundreds of great loops available. The desktop version is EVEN better and I honestly don’t know why this app isn’t on all websites regarding making music. My ONLY want is for me to be able to play my beats and songs on repeat or shuffle on the mobile app lol 5 stars for sure

You also share it thru youtube and it’s really easy and great to use specially to start finding your rap fans / voice and they have different themes and genres so if your a singer you could also use this app or like to make beats then is really great for you because everyone on here try to find and do find good beats to sing or rap too

I really like this app I feel like this is the only free music app I can really enjoy I don’t have as much as problems on here I just wish that there were more song samples that we could use or better beats that we can use 😕 but so far I love 💕 this app I hope they improve on the songs a bit better though and y’all need to fix y’all quality a bit more

A few unsatisfying quarks
by Icewheel12 on 2019/07/17 17:26
So first of all, I want to say that this is an amazing app, I love it. Buuuuttt, there are a few quarks. The app itself is a bit touchy, and no that is not a pun. But when you want to edit your notes, it can be difficult just to do something simple like that. For instance, when I’m trying to scroll across in edit mode, I accidentally make new notes. It’s a bit touchy. And also you need to be able to zoom in and out of edit mode. Scrolling that much is kind of unnecessary. Anyways thanks for reading and I will rate 5 if these quarks are fixed. Thanks again
Amazing

Good app gone bad
by mayn* on 2019/07/15 22:06
I used to record while listening to the instrumentals using my Bluetooth headphones but Im unable to hear sounds using my headphones until I finish the session and save. I don’t know why I have to shout before I can sound audible on my iPhone also unlike the android version where I can fix latency. My android phone also has playback errors. It’s like when I finally find the solution to the problems I had on the IOS version of the application by using the android version it turns out that the android version also has issues that is not on the IOS version. The issue is not from the phones because I used to record on my android phone without playback errors and I also used to record on my iPhone while listening with my Bluetooth headphones. It came to an end when I lost my data on my phones and had to install these updated versions. It’s heartbreaking cos I cant record on my android cos of playback errors and no matter how much I try the instruments just doesn’t align with my recorded vocals. And I used to overlook the fact that I have to shout while using my iPhone7 even though my neighbors have been complaining and still it wont sound really audible. I didn’t have to shout when I had one of the previous versions and I could also listen to sounds with my headset while I have a record session. Unlike this updated versions where I have to finish the session then save, wait for it to sync before I can listen to it which makes it unable for me to edit or listen to my recordings while in the process of making a song.

Time Stretch For Audio PLEASEEEE
by CozmicZombii on 2019/07/14 21:02
I absolutely love everything about this mobile app. I do also enjoy the process of making music using the online daw, but I am very curious to know if the ability to time stretch audio samples will soon be coming to mobile?? Right now I’m having to go online, time stretch the audio, and THEN come back to my iPad to finish my songs. This is fine when I’m already at home, but I don’t always have access to my computer and I’d really like to be able to use my iPad as my stand alone music maker. This app alone is already amazing, if more features from the online daw came to mobile there would be no competition 😏😁😁❤️❤️❤️
The best

Instrument editing issue!!!!!!
by FadeFlayo on 2019/07/13 23:35
Hey so I just got this app 2-3 days ago or so. I managed to make a full song, titled “Overcome” , and published it for testing purposes and to share with friends and others to get feedback. Of course since I published it so early, I would still want to go back and double check the song for any errors or possible creative additions. I began to listen to all of the instrumentals individually to make sure all the notes and placements were right. Then I noticed one major note placement error in the instrument I was using called “Overdrive” in the guitar category. I attempted to edit the measure I wanted, and then the app just crashed. I opened it again and tried opening the note editing system from the page where it has the piano keys instead of clicking on the section of the song and clicking edit, still using the overdrive instrument. It crashed again. I was already frustrated right then and there. I opened the app again, and the song again, and this time I tried editing the notes of a different instrument. It worked! So I go to try and edit the “Overdrive” instrument again, and it crashed again the same exact way, at the same exact time I pressed the button “edit” and the other way on the piano screen. Feeling a little grim now, I opened the app again once more and the project once more. I then literally tested to see if it would let me edit the notes of every individual instrument except for the “Overdrive” instrument. And I was so very much put to ease a little when all of them worked!! I successfully was able to open the note editor screen that can be described as a table with rows and columns representing the notes and measure increments. Then literally imagining the sound of a drumroll in my head I proceeded to open that editor on the last instrument that I desperately needed to work more importantly than the other instruments, because again to remind you this is the instrument, “Overdrive” , that I mistakenly place a note in the wrong place and wished to EASILY and SIMPLY correct. And the only reason I’m writing this review is because there wasn’t a happy ending to that story...and I just hope there is something your team can do to fix whatever issue that is. Final recap*** Every time I attempt to edit the notes on the instrument titled “Overdrive” on the published song titled “Overcome” the app either does the hyphen-Star-circling loading animation in the middle of the screen and the whole screen goes black, and then I’m back at my home screen of my phone, or it just goes immediately to the black screen and I’m back at my home screen. Or in other words the app crashes. Positive note***** I read a lot of the reviews and honestly to all of you who developed this app, you truly deserve every positive thing that was said about this app. It’s truly a beautifully designed contribution to the world of music and I believe it can really take anyone as far as they choose to go. ******** Please just consider helping me with that issue because even if the app allowed me to make a song I felt really good about, as a musician, what’s the point of using a song editing tool if the song editing tool doesn’t allow you to edit exactly what you need it to edit? And also I agree with many others about adding more voice effects, and I really wanted to add the idea of more instruments and sounds too. I’m a guitarist, and I know there’s the option of plugging in your own guitar or bass or similar set ups for playing real instruments, but I just wanted to say that it would be impressive if there were plenty variety of the downloadable midi instruments that can be programmed purely with your phone. And I’m focusing on phones/mobile devices here because of the beautiful idea of making a song whenever and wherever you are. That kind of flexibility to be able to make a song with the instrument you want even if the instrument isn’t physically there is what would make this app even more formidable to many other music editing programs. That, and I would say definite ways to change time signature during a song, and change tempo or bpm during a song, possibly the ability to add multiple effects on an instrument or vocals or sound, and to be able to morph or modify a sound like for example if I had an instrument sustain a note but wanted the note to slide up or down to an octave or any desired steps. Kinda like if you were to do bends or slides on a guitar. That’s all I have to say. And again PLEASE most importantly, can you help me fix my issue??????????? ********************** I wrote this whole thing a few days ago but after using the app again more I have a serious issue. I started a new song and still am having the app crash whenever I try to edit the notes of an instrument. Now I can’t even make any progress because I can’t even add one note without the app crashing.........I’m very disappointed......
Love it

by big.z_funk on 2019/07/11 21:48
This app is actually realy good if you’re trying to make a beat to make yourself known. But if we could get a little more genre’s for the looper that would be great.

If you make music you must have BandLab!
by MelanieMabel on 2019/07/10 19:29
I don’t upload very often on BandLab because promoting on the app is a little confusing. Definitely would if I understood it better. I’m still giving this app 5 stars because The mastering option is AMAZING! Having all your music ready in a program. Makes it very easy to use and do literally anything on.(slow music down, record music, make music) I recommend BandLab to everyone I know and given the chance I would love to partner with BandLab. DOWNLOAD DOWNLOAD DOWNLOAD (use it on the internet as well!) -Mari!

by Gopoptart12 on 2019/07/08 14:48
It won’t load anything. When I press play on a song it just loads and nothing happens. It’s my own songs and my friends songs. ., I have a great connection I’ve tried it at home with my WiFi. I’ve tried it with LTE, I’ve tried it at a restaurant with their WiFi, nothing seems to be loading. I’ve even deleted the app and downloaded it again. I’m thinking it’s an issue on your end. Band lab is awesome but lately it’s been very laggy and annoying to work with.
Trashhhhh
by Gmanz23 on 2019/07/08 03:21

Website and App nonfunctional
by Yasmine Omar on 2019/07/07 23:38
The website and app have always worked well for me but now for the past week+ I can’t even open the mix editor on any of my screens without it sounding fuzzed and just glitching completely. Previously saved private projects of mine have just disappeared after I tried to open them. I love BandLab but I don’t know what’s wrong with it right now.
Did an update
by "Fuvk" A Nickname on 2019/07/07 20:22
Can’t listen to my Bluetooth Speaker anymore until I publish the track, what’s with that? It only plays off of the phone speakers when in the Mix Editor, not off of the Bluetooth speakers like the Older version, I don’t even get the “ Bluetooth may delay recording” message. Please fix. So It can rate it 10⭐️🌟⭐️🌟⭐️🌟⭐️🌟⭐️🌟’s

Handy
Perfect for sketching
by JjjClayFroTon17345 on 2019/07/06 19:17
Great app to sketch out a cool song or beat to be later finished in another program or on a computer. Also, the community aspect is a useful way to show your music and find other likeminded artists for inspiration or collaboration. Runs very smooth. I have had little to no problems with performance or crashing. They are constantly working on bugs (no app ever made comes without bugs) so I’m always confident working in BANDLAB. Check it out, it’s free! You’d be crazy not to at least see what it has to offer. I understand that as artist we all have different needs while working in our mediums and this app serves many of mine. Maybe it will also serve your needs; there’s only one way to find out....
Can’t listen to music
by abcefglikmi on 2019/07/06 03:37

This app is pretty solid but lately for some reason, it’s not letting me play some of my music or others when I hit the play button, it just keeps loading and never play. Need to check that out and also the syncing problem, everytime I saved a song it just kicks me out the app and it just keeps syncing and I have to restore my song I made and save it over and eventually it’ll save.

8 out of 10
by Someone Who Wrote Something on 2019/07/04 15:50
This app has many pros and then many cons (like most things in life already do) but with saying that I try to look at the positive side of things and yes looking at the negative side of things can be very useful as well as beneficial but in this case I would focus mainly on the positive stuff rather than negative because this app has all I need. 8 out of 10 (great app). If you want more in deep-thought feedback be happy to reach out to me otherwise this is what I have.
I CANT USE MY ACCOUNT!

My account got replaced by the same email i signed in with i’m trying to get my account back please bandlab help out i was gonna record a song. but other than that this app is amazing highly recommended if you’re interested in recording your music!
Great for beginners and simple producers!
by FortuneCoochie on 2019/07/04 05:58
My experience with this app has been amazing, but there are some drawbacks I would like to point out. After I really started getting into music production, I saw that many of the tools that would be a no brained are not available in the app. There is no option for triplets or any note other than a 16th or higher. Velocity of each note is not accessible on mobile, only PC. Even then, the velocity controls are a bit odd compared to other music production softwares that are FREE. Those two are probably my biggest drawbacks for this app. Other than that, if you are a beginner producer looking for an easy music production app, BandLab is for you. I suggest getting LMMS if you want to go more serious and still be in the free range on PC or Mac.
Bluetooth and Extended songs.
by TheReaperOfSouls98 on 2019/07/04 05:00
So far, it’s only three trees for me. BandLab used be a forest five with a bunch of trees, but so far it’s only been three lonely trees. What happened to Bluetooth on here? I can’t even make a song on the go because my Bluetooths don’t work. They work fine listening, however trying to create a song doesn’t work. Come on B! The extensions of songs. How come you can only make them six minutes long? An added feature to make longer songs would be very nice. Until the Bluetooth situation gets fixed, or an ability to make longer songs, it remains a three bee. Please get yourselves situated.

Why? Why why why???
by Josiah Miles on 2019/07/02 19:21
Please, what was the point of the update??? All you did was make it where I can no longer edit the beats I produce, there were no serious problems before that, and now you've created one that makes the app basically unusable 🤦🏽‍♂️ if its not broke, don't fix it. I make a rhythm using the instruments, and as soon and I listen to it the first time I can no longer edit any of it and the app just breaks down, Ive tried numerous times, Ive logged out and logged back in, and Im tired of undownloading and redownloading the app because y'all keep creating problems trying to "make your app fancier" or whatever the point of these updates are, I used to love this app, but I cannot stand having to redownload all my wanted instruments again everytime I have to delete and redownload the app because of the unnecessary problems your updates keep creating. Fix this problem, and then LEAVE THE APP ALOOOOONE, we like it the way it is, don't make me switch to Garage Band cuz y'all keep making your app more and more unreliable, I don't want to do that but if it means I don't need to worry about my music constantly getting postponed, deleted, everything this app keeps causing, I will have to.
Presently pleases !!!
by Teez187 on 2019/07/02 07:31
This App has really surprised me, Im usually writing the songs and sometimes else would make beat. But this app has maid it easy, can’t wait to finish my first project.

It’s Good
by clever sav on 2019/07/01 19:47
For it to be free it’s pretty darn good.
It keep crashing
by Janecia Taylor on 2019/07/01 17:57
The people who made this app need to fix this, it keep crashing, and when you do i proudly will change this review to 3 or 4 stars.
Microphone
by Andre W. Foster on 2019/07/01 17:55
So my apple earbuds have a mic that i used to rap through to make songs on bandlab but now when i plug them in the mic doesnt work. Instead, my phone itself turns into the mic and it makes it really hard to record music. I assume that this is something with the app and i cant even produce anything off here anymore.
Great
by Auggie L. on 2019/07/01 17:09
Couldn’t ask for more for free!
Powerful, but confused
by Oxhammer on 2019/07/01 17:07
My band loves to use this app to record practicing and share the files instantly with each other. But the interface for collaboration is awkward and confusing. Instead the app creators want it to be used for social sharing, which makes no sense organically. Why would you use a recording app for social media?
Great app
by nobody1298 on 2019/07/01 09:16
This is the best app you could possibly make songs on.
messing up💔
by cassandrahxo on 2018/12/06 04:10
i love this app but there’s a few things, i saved a project private, because i wanted to fix it later, and i fixed it today, saved it and then put it out publicly and then it didn’t even post, all I see now is my older version that is private and not the fixed one. it disappeared after i saved and posted it ☹️ also, on the website, i put in my instagram bio for people to listen to the music i released, but now when they click it they can see only SONG TITLES OF SONGS I HAVE NOT PUT OUT. private songs !!!! “recent projects”!!! i do not want them to see what i’m working on i want them to be able to listen to the songs i have out for public only, now they can’t even listen to my previous songs i put out. it’s SO disappointing, you can’t even search for me (or anyone) on the website, only copy and paste my link only to see the titles of songs i am working on that are “private”. private should mean that only I can see them. apparently not. and if the website only has you to sign in to listen , that’s disappointing as well😞 this app has been so amazing helping me but all the sudden this changed, not posting my finished recording and the website problems. PLEASE FIX TO HOW IT USED TO BE😭😭😭
Lost my voice audio😢🙏🏻
by Young CoN_15 on 2019/06/01 03:59
So it’s a great app overall and I finally ran into an issue I made a brand new song was very proud and about to post it and I clicked save so I could go and tweak some things and make my audio more clear then only to realize the app only saved the beat and not my voice audio and my lyrics disappeared that I had written down aswell I’m overall really disappointed that out of all issues hat could have happened it was this issue I have never had issues until now I would love a reply from a developer or someone that can help me because maybe it got lost in like the apps cloud or something but I worked so hard on this song and now I have nothing but the beat no none of my vocals are there anymore, and my lyrics have been erased aswell off the app please someone write back and please fix this bug on your app at this point I’ve tried all I could to retrieve my lost vocals and lyrics so I’m trying to the developer please help me because I was really proud of this song and I hate dissapointing all my fans I have everywhere😢🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
I have one problem...
by Allen Grayson on 2018/12/31 20:51
BandLab is an excellent app for music making and listening. I absolutely love it. That is, until a problem occurred. I went to get into the app just yesterday and instead of going in straight to my profile and the normal screen, it had the entire intro log in screen show up as if I logged out of my account, which I never do. When I tried logging in using my information, is kept on saying that I have “incorrect credentials”. So, I tried logging in with my google account instead. I thought it would work, but then I got a pop-up saying that my email is “already linked to a different account type”. So now, I can’t log in AT ALL, or access any of my stuff, which is really frustrating. It also makes me worried that my account somehow got lost, along with all of my stuff on it. I still get notifications telling me that people liked my song, or started following me, but even when I tap on the notification banner that shows up at the top of the screen to take me to the app, NOTHING HAPPENS. If you could please help in any way or give some sort of advice as to what I should do, thank you. My music is very important to me and I don’t want it to be lost forever with my account. Thank you.
It’s a top quality app
by TroyingMyBest on 2018/03/29 14:00
This is a very good quality app, if you want to be an artist and make music but you don’t have any equipment at all, this app is the app to go too. Amazing app. Oh and by the way, I just want somethings added to the app, can you make more voice fx? Basically all of them just add a simple echo at different levels. Add a deep and raspy effect, add an effect that makes you sound like you’re through a phone, add an effect that makes your voice very faint and but it still stands out, and many more! I would appreciate it if you can add those things, it’ll really make my music sound better! Also another suggestion is too add a litte more options to audio, like make it fade in/out and you can add how long you want the fade to go for, you know that type of stuff, I hope you can see this and take my review in consideration! Peace and love
I love bandlab but sometimes it’s retarded
by endmepls on 2018/06/03 06:14
OK bandlab pisses me off sometimes when I upload a song and I select the genre and picture for it sometimes it just won’t upload under the genre I selected Or with the right picture and it really frustrates me because I can’t seem to get my music where I want it to be without band lab changing the genre for no apparent reason and then when you go to delete it to re-upload it sometimes it will not delete it and the song will become glitched and unremovable and it really aggravates me having three versions of the exact same song on my profile and it triggers my OCD seeing a massive amount of unremovable songs on my profile like CAN I JUST HAVE A CLEAN PROFILE WITH 1 OF EVERY SONG NOT 3 COPYS!!!!!!! And also for some apparent reason not even bandlab support knows how to fix it I’ve tried to explain but every time the advice was useless UGHHHHHHHH!!!!!. *sigh*... so basically in conclusion if you want your music to get herd I would highly recommend a bandlab it’s really a great app but sometimes it just is so slow clunky and glitchy and The suppose it “support” they offer doesn’t really help for some of the things that is wrong with the app
Overall amazing! But...
by yungmvltxn on 2018/02/23 11:01
there are still a few things you have to work on! For example the AutoTune Feature, it sounds all muffled up if I want to use it, also you should add more Vocal Effects for example a Slapback Effect or a Distortion Effect and a Vocal Harmony or Voice Pitch Changer. There are all sorts of ideas, these Features above I suggest. I use this App almost everyday and I create amazing songs with it. Also, please try to change the Microphone Frequency or make it sound better because it doesn't sound that bad but it could be better as well. Just make it sound a bit more realistic like the Application "Take" does. They make it sound really good and also have many Effects. And please make the Beats or Music that you import automatically change the BPM to the BPM of the Beat. For example I upload a Beat with 140BPM, but BandLab still tells me its 120BPM, which is why I have to first add my Vocal Tracks, then change the BPM, then add the Beat to match the BPM. I don't mean to stress you add, those are just things to make your App even better! Love you, keep going forward!
Why? Why why why???
by Josiah Miles on 2019/07/02 19:21
Please, what was the point of the update??? All you did was make it where I can no longer edit the beats I produce, there were no serious problems before that, and now you've created one that makes the app basically unusable 🤦🏽‍♂️ if its not broke, don't fix it. I make a rhythm using the instruments, and as soon and I listen to it the first time I can no longer edit any of it and the app just breaks down, Ive tried numerous times, Ive logged out and logged back in, and Im tired of undownloading and redownloading the app because y'all keep creating problems trying to "make your app fancier" or whatever the point of these updates are, I used to love this app, but I cannot stand having to redownload all my wanted instruments again everytime I have to delete and redownload the app because of the unnecessary problems your updates keep creating.

Disappointed
by D,nickname on 2018/12/22 02:13
I was really excited when I first got this app. It was easy to use, compatible for downloading, and offered a variety of loops. However, yesterday, after having it only two weeks all of my saved tracks deleted on me. I kept all of my tracks private since I was still figuring out the “lab” portion so I didn’t share the majority of my music except for on track out of probably 10 so far. Luckily the ones I liked I did back up but it was just unsettling to have everything disappear like that from every folder on the app (including the library and my saved folders). Everything was gone. I did some research digging online and found that deleting and re-downloading the app can sometimes bring them back and sure enough it did now. But it’s just a strange clutch to still be happening after people have reported it and there have been updates. If the app becomes more secure then it’s on its way to being a huge tool for music makers!
Dank App!!!
by Coronaconfidential on 2019/04/26 22:12
This is an awesome app that has such tools that can make anyone feel like a rockstar. From being able to upload and play with your music, recordings, collab, network and make money off this app. However they don’t give the recognition to the people who’s been on here deserving for at least a check mark such as the other players have been able to receive. I have 12,000 followers and my band has reached up to almost 95,000 listeners, still no check mark. It’d be nice to show your bandlab community spreading the word and making people famous and not the app itself, it’s just ENHANCING our music credibility the rest is on your person alone. Have fun with this but apparently don’t invest because it won’t even get you a check mark. Listen to Loudpvckmobb with king dvbz and his girl queen dvbz and the rest of the mobb they go hard. Find us on every platform because bandlab helped us get there. Enjoy!
Wonderful
by Gliiz on 2018/08/18 03:13
This app is amazing, the BandLab team is always going to fix the issue if there is one, it’s probably happening when they are updating and making the app better, So be patient and work on a song lol!! I’ve been able to really open my horizons and get creative more than I ever thought possible because of all the options like collaborating, I’m a singer but Its so easy to learn that I’ve even made some beats, I didn’t know I could do that....I feel BandLab helps you discover your talent or talents. It’s so fun to make music and let others see how you express yourself and you never know if a song may touch someone so share it even if it’s not perfect in your eyes! Thank you BandLab I’m grateful for y’all! <3. Another few perks...it’s free! And no ads!!! And I’ve made lots of friends in the communities I’ve joined.
Very pleased & female friendly
by MissRoar! on 2018/04/06 03:22
I’ve been using this app for almost a year now! I really love all the updates. I’m more comfortable with this app more than any other app. I only have 2 problems: 1. When I use the desktop version to go in and edit, I can never hear the song. The audio is always messed up. So, I never know what I’m editing sound wise. I just have to guess and hope I get it right. So, I’ve been sticking to my basic reverb of only 22% on every song and that’s it. I’ve used google chrome & regular browsers, switched computers & still the same problem. This would be a GREAT FIX! 2. I would love to have fade in/out options for endings. Or, basically any way to be able to switch up endings. Overall it’s a GREAT APP! I find myself using it more than other apps I’ve used longer.
Perfect for sketching
by JjjClayFroTon17345 on 2019/07/06 19:17
Great app to sketch out a cool song or beat to be later finished in another program or on a computer. Also, the community aspect is a useful way to show your music and find other likeminded artists for inspiration or collaboration. Runs very smooth. I have had little to no problems with performance or crashing. They are constantly working on bugs (no app ever made comes without bugs) so I’m always confident working in BANDLAB. Check it out, it’s free! You’d be crazy not to at least see what it has to offer. I understand that as artist we all have different needs while working in our mediums and this app serves many of mine. Maybe it will also serve your needs; there’s only one way to find out....
Needs to be able to duplicate
by Bnaeefbwrnegnegnwf af wv on 2018/05/26 01:59
Just like on computer DAWS, you need to have us be able to copy our line of beats (per say the piano part, the drum part, etc) and make it loop. It’s annoying to have to spend three minutes tapping on the same things just to get that sound throug the whole song mixed with mistakes. All I ask for in this current moment is the ability to duplicate our track/line, and repeat it as long as we want too throughout the song. If that’s available pls let me know I can’t find any info on it or any options thank you. Also let us cut some parts out of our song, sometimes we make it louder or there’s too much white noise in between. Again, loved your response thank you!! But duplicate, duplicating is so important. Re-recording a chorus to the exact key and length is super hard. I would love to be able to copy, and paste my areas. Duplicating.
Fire!
by young toast on 2018/10/08 05:37
I like this cuz I have access at my projects not yet finished but not just that I have access at every thing I make anywhere i go I’ve actually utilized the web version in my lap top and been able to Pull it up on my cell phone later when I’ve had a breakthrough from a writers block and been able to lay it down rite then and there in my car with some Mac headphones and clean it up later, there’s some egos when it comes to the whole tryinna get recognition through this app cuz most the dudes on here don’t have anything poppin in real life there social media thugs so you may run into that but if your raw and talented you probably won’t even noticed tbh you’ll be too busy making hits I’m out- young toaster
Solid App
by Keenaaiiin on 2019/05/01 02:25
So I just really use the looper so I can’t speak for the other features and uses for the app, but for a free app this seems to have a lot of tools for making music on the go. Like I said, I only use the looper, which is great to make an instrumental to pass some time or a long car ride. I’ve tried many other free looper apps and all of them are generic with tons of adds and one or two sets of different sounds. This app has loops of real instruments and isn’t all just techno style. Unfortunately you can’t change the sounds for the loop packs or mix and match between different loop packs. But out of all loopers our there this is by far the best one I have been able to find.
Great for beginners and simple producers!
by FortuneCoochie on 2019/07/04 05:58
My experience with this app has been amazing, but there are some drawbacks I would like to point out. After I really started getting into music production, I saw that many of the tools that would be a no brained are not available in the app. There is no option for triplets or any note other than a 16th or higher. Velocity of each note is not accessible on mobile, only PC. Even then, the velocity controls are a bit odd compared to other music production softwares that are FREE. Those two are probably my biggest drawbacks for this app. Other than that, if you are a beginner producer looking for an easy music production app, BandLab is for you. I suggest getting LMMS if you want to go more serious and still be in the free range on PC or Mac.
Static but the Furture
by LynellsiaMarie on 2019/06/21 13:31
This is one of my Favorite Music apps by far! The Mix approach is very acceptable! There’s options that are unlike any app I’ve ever experienced in making music for 7 years on my phone. This app is truly one for a beginner, and and established artist. My only downfall is the static that comes with producing a track...., which is a pretty big one seeing there’s no way to share the professionalism of this app with listeners or friends, because of the “Static interference!” Please fix this if possible. I know this app is truly going places! ——————— Updated June/2019 Bandlab adds a mix of Genres continuously! And works extremely hard to fix any problems. It’s an app that’s worth using! All your content is your own, plus you have the option to collaborate with other artist. With proper equipment you can make good, and Stable music!
Great idea for an app!
by Google search Search on 2019/03/07 21:34
So I joined BandLab last week. Actually, it's really even better than some music apps like GarageBand and other stuff I tried. First off, you can follow and listen to other peoples music. You can also publish your own! That's why it's really nice. All the Mehdi instruments and also loops are really nice! It would be good if you made some accessibility especially with voiceover, which is a screen reading tool that Apple made. Also, it be even nice to add more stuff from the midi instruments, including Dubstep more of that. Your other dubstep loops were pretty nice! And also more instruments? That would be nice. Anyways keep up the good work! I haven't really published anything yet since I'm kind of just messing around with it. No worries, but I will soon get to it
Everything keeps deleting, not sure what im doing wrong
by Everything Keeps deleting on 2018/04/27 17:18
I love this app, everything about it is amazing, except for the fact I can’t actually save anything I create. I had no problems when I first downloaded this, but after a month of having it, half of everything I made deletes after I click the “save” button, which totally defeats the whole purpose of save. But yeah, the only thing that doesn’t get deleted is my imported soundtrack and then maybe like, 18 seconds of voice audio, the rest just disappears. I thought maybe it was my storage but I have half my memory empty and then i thought maybe i just have too many songs but i only have like 4, maybe thats too much? Would absolutely love if you guys could do anything or maybe explain what i did wrong. Anyways sorry for this long review, I just really love the app and would love to get on it again. I even recommended this app to friends! Thanks have a good day.
Best around
by Fozzio_TheGreat on 2018/05/03 15:11
Amazing app only rating 1 star because 2 days ago it just stopped saving properly, whenever it does save it deletes everything when i come back so now I’m doing a weird method hoping it doesn’t reset certain parts. Normally I’d ask support but they’ve proven quite well to possibly not even be human; slow response times and help so idiotic it feels copy and pasted. EDIT: after a patch went through to fix this problem I still can’t save for jack; gonna reinstall again hopefully with results this time. Edit: that patch did literally nothing app is actually useless if it doesn’t save anything Edit: with the latest patch the app is back to normal 👍🏾
Amazing (previously)
by Meth0dman on 2018/05/28 20:04
The below comment was two years ago when the app was unbelievable and a totally game changer... it has since become buggy and unreliable..Support suggest that it is my connection that is the issue though most of my bandmates have the same issue and the fact that I actually work from home for a living and access my employers network remotely with my fiber optic network with no issues . I also am hesitant to trust my music with this app as well if I record I either am no longer able to access my music or there is a red arrow that goes up suggesting the music has not uploaded to the server either way it has become really unreliable and I am very very disappointed as a result. I am less then a novice when it comes to the technical side of making music as I am a writer that said, this platform is amazing in my opinion!
Time Stretch For Audio PLEASEEEE
by CozmicZombii on 2019/07/14 21:02
I absolutely love everything about this mobile app. I do also enjoy the process of making music using the online daw, but I am very curious to know if the ability to time stretch audio samples will soon be coming to mobile?? Right now I’m having to go online, time stretch the audio, and THEN come back to my iPad to finish my songs. This is fine when I’m already at home, but I don’t always have access to my computer and I’d really like to be able to use my iPad as my stand alone music maker. This app alone is already amazing, if more features from the online daw came to mobile there would be no competition 😏😁😁❤️❤️❤️
Issues have been fixed, thanks!
by Jamespugli on 2018/07/06 21:08
First off I will happily change to 5 stars, but when I record something and want to record something on top of that track it re-records what is playing through my headphones. So the app is pretty much unusable if you want to lay a guitar track and sing on a separate track. It turns into a muddy mess. Maybe I’m just doing something wrong, but the answer isn’t obvious to me. Update: I know functionally how to lay multiple tracks on the app, the problem is when I play over a track, it records what I’m playing AND re-records what I’m hearing through the headphones. So I’ll have two tracks one lone guitar track and one with live guitar AND the oringinal guitar track. After one guitar line everything’s a muddy mess. This includes vocals where it re-records the guitar that was already played on track one and records the vocals on track 2, to muddy results. Update: This issue has been fixed, the bandlab team was helpful and it’s once again the best app for recording music on your phone!
Best Music App (BUT...)
by Swole Shady on 2018/02/04 21:27
No doubt this is the best app to make your own music with. However, I think it’d be a whole lot more enjoyable if the user is able to actually save their work, as in being able to export their music from the app to his/her phone. The only way to access my songs is to go to the app itself. If anything, there should be a BandLab Pro where there’s an option to save the music that’s created. If the user enjoys his/her BandLab experience, they can purchase BandLab Pro and have access to all features, like saving their files to their phones. That way, they can use their own work for projects like lyric videos or short films. Please do something about this or at least consider it.
Accessability
by The Georgie Verse on 2019/06/21 04:30
I am blind and enjoy using this app, however, I cannot click on my notifications. The tabs at the bottom of the screen are not labeled with words, and neither are the buttons. Voice over cannot read icons, so words would be helpful. When I go to my notifications, it tells me how long ago it was, but will not let me click on it, or tell me what it is actually about. Also, when you try adding on more than one track, voice over is rendered completely useless. For blind music makers and singers like myself, BandLab was the one thing we had. Please keep it that way, because garage band is not that great either, and you still have my vote. Just fix these few things, because your accessibility used to be better.
I recommend if you like to rap/if you like to put it on SoundCloud,etc.
by sheonte101 on 2018/08/18 08:26
I’m a dancer but I also love to rap and using this app was interesting because I discover a lot from voice control to using beats and you can create your own plus I can use this app to share my songs/tracks on SoundCloud,instagram,musically,contacts,ect. plus it’s mostly free and it’s a lot of free fun stuff you can do from collab to making a band and many more so I’ll say get the app and at least try and you can also add/cut parts in your track you want or don’t like and if you want to find me,I’m princess_slaylit & SoundCloud- princess_savage
Perfect for track making
by JonBrown[FrostByte] on 2018/04/10 19:15
I’ve used over 30 different Apple Store band making apps and the best ones have never taken me as far as Band Lab. I genuinely love this app because of it’s versatility and simple interface. A lot of the time trying to find the right distortion for a Pantera song is hard or trying to get a phaser that goes beyond what my Fender has installed, all of this is made simple with Band Lab. I do not pay for the app, I pay so that it stays with me longer. This app is so worth getting if you have trouble getting multiple guitarists for a certain riff you want to make or pull of. Bless Band Lab
Love bandlab
by @chesyre on 2019/04/29 05:55
Bandlab has helped me start my music career.. I don’t have a lot of money right now and not in the best place in my life so I don’t have a lot of equipment or software to work with. But in the perfect time of my life to make some of my best music, and band lab has helped me start my dream. Whether I’m famous or not or make it in any way doesn’t matter I just want to make music and see what I’m capable of and where my potential can go! Thank you so much bandlab please keep improving and adding to this this is a must have for underground music makers and idk what I did without this app before!
WORLD'S BEST APP.
by Archangelshiro on 2017/11/30 01:48
Seriously. I don't usually write reviews, but it blew my mind clean open when I found that not only is this COMPLETELY free (I actually went looking for a place to throw my money at them and couldn't find one), it's insanely easy to use for people who want to record and mix music. The cloud storage feature makes it easy to record on phone then pick it up on the computer later, God why haven't I heard of this before?! Told all my music buddies about it. So far the only downside is that it's tricky to find that publish button the fist time you use it, but other than that, 10/10, best app in the world for music makers. I've actually spent decent amounts of money on higher end recording studio programs, but BandLab does it all. For free. Can't say enough good things. For real though, where can I send you guys money?? You deserve it for making such a masterpiece of an app.
Ipad landscape
by stratfanman on 2018/10/28 16:58
This app would be perfect if it responded intuitively to landscape and portrait mode on the ipad pro 12.9 The ipad fits on the stand in landscape,not portrait,so when i want to read anything using the app i have to take it off the stand and hold it in the air in portrait mode. i cant just read it on its stand,although i could read it correctly online,but when i go to do any actual work in the app,im holding the ipad in the air sideways so i can maneuver through the lists to work on a song. -and when finishing a song having to hold the ipad in the air with one hand as you choose a picture,genre,description,collaborators ,save and publish...maybe a desktop style ios version? Please?
BandLab
by J1 I.N.C on 2018/09/20 15:24
I have been on BandLab for over a year now the platform to share music is awesome and there are so many plugins and now u can also use cakewalk now the down side I use BandLab about 6 hrs a day and at times it doesn’t play songs doesn’t show messages or It will say it saved a song but go to my projects and it never saved the app is awesome like I said and I understand there are a lot of users so that can slow stuff down and they try to put up updates every day which helps but never really fix’s the problems thanks for the app just please try and address the problems thx J1
Amazing but buggy
by Us hbu on 2018/02/20 21:58
I love the app! It is great and really give people an opportunity to put their craft into reality but there is way to many bugs from this last update, i open some projects and it wont show me the history and i have problems seeing last revisions they take forever to sync now. it wasn’t like this before and i have a bunch of notifications and invites but they don’t show up it just says i have them! When the app is working properly i love it but please fix all these new bugs and a big update would be adding some more effect to give people more diversity🔥
Bluetooth and Extended songs.

So far, it’s only three trees for me. BandLab used be a forest five with a bunch of trees, but so far it’s only been three lonely trees. What happened to Bluetooth on here? I can’t even make a song on the go because my Bluetooths don’t work. They work fine listening, however trying to create a song doesn’t work. Come on B! The extensions of songs. How come you can only make them six minutes long? An added feature to make longer songs would be very nice. Until the Bluetooth situation gets fixed, or an ability to make longer songs, it remains a three bee. Please get yourselves situated.
Fantastic
by D4rk_Wolf on 2018/03/21 20:37
Free and amazing. It works perfectly with my BandLab link! I can do anything with this app, the built in sounds aren’t perfect, but where it shines is the ability to import and export. I can do my cleans in BandLab, export to GarageBand and bias FX for the dirt and X drummer for drums, and import it into bandlab! The community is friendly, and I feel like it’s a good outlet for creativity. I am eager to see how it evolves. This company also now has the rights to some of cakewalks stuff, so here’s hoping Sonar is on the way, definitely a group to keep your eyes on for the near future!
Good but too easy to delete things
by NotD-boi on 2019/05/29 21:19
I love this app and it is an amazing was to make all sorts of amazing music but i was logging out of a revision I had saved then I went back into it a few hours later and it haven’t saved, I lost all my work and had to start again from scratch, it seems like that you have to finish a song from the first time you open the mix editor. Everything else about the app is great though and it is very cool and a great way to make music. I recommend BandLab to any person looking for a way to start their music career.
Serious Issues
by Stockton Gunafornia on 2018/11/22 16:49
The app is not letting me publish my tracks. I’ll record a track and attempt to have it published but after the fact my track stays private. And when I try to play it back the app tells me “Can’t play broken song” or “Processing in progress “ . I have been a BandLanb user for years now, it will be a disgrace if I have to delete this app due to these issues that occur on the regular basis. And according to others, I’m not the only user that’s been facing these terrible issues.
Good app
by msfit tha kid on 2019/04/14 20:10
I’ve been using bandlab for a year now and I’ve enjoyed making music with all the different voice effects and auto tunes that bandlab has to offer and the process has overall been smooth. However recently there has been a problem with the servers saying there’s no WiFi connection when I am completely connected to WiFi and it locks me out of my music not allowing me to access my songs. Overall this is a great app and it’s fun for upcoming artist such as myself but this definitely needs to be fixed with bandlab
Excellent app for musicians
by therosesavage on 2019/03/12 14:58
I’ve been using this app for over a year now, and the functionality of it is so simple. Anybody can use this app, experienced musicians, beginner musicians, etc. You can choose what kind of genre you want to create a song out of, you can choose the key it’s set in, and you can choose the timing. I typically use the loops because it helps me write songs better and much more structure. It’s an intricate app that allows users to create music with ease. Highly recommend 11/10.
Phenomenal
by MigalFred on 2018/06/03 20:06
I usually don’t do reviews on any apps, but this one deserved it. I am a musician who does covers and original songs, and this is prefect for it. I tried out so many different apps, but none of them really appealed to me. When I found this app, I thought it would be the same kind of thing, but I was so wrong. I feel very free with this app, and I would highly recommend it to anybody who has had the same experience as me with mobile music apps. 10/10
A few unsatisfying quarks
by Icewheel12 on 2019/07/17 17:26
So first of all, I want to say that this is an amazing app, I love it. Buuuuttt, there are a few quarks. The app itself is a bit touchy, and no that is not a pun. But when you want to edit your notes, it can be difficult just to do something simple like that. For instance, when I’m trying to scroll across in edit mode, I accidentally make new notes. It’s a bit touchy. And also you need to be able to zoom in and out of edit mode. Scrolling that much is kind of unnecessary. Anyways thanks for reading and I will rate 5 if these quarks are fixed. Thanks again
Really great! But some glitches
by the gusie on 2019/01/21 19:20
I’ve had BandLab for about 4 months and have really been enjoying it, but recently the app has been crashing more than usual. Whenever it crashes it logs me out and I have to log back in. But 9 out of ten times it takes me back to the original log in screen, until it finally lets me in after trying over and over. This morning it started crashing and I can’t even open the app. The app has been really great so far, but this is really frustrating. Please help. Thanks.
😕🙁
by james1348 on 2019/06/07 01:17
I like the app it’s rlly good for recording but I can’t figure out how to edit the music there’s no reverb option there’s no double option there’s no reverse option without knowing how to properly edit off of this app (or not having those features on the app) it’s basically a copy of voice memos on my iPhone I hope I can figure out how to use editing features like that (or I hope that there even on the app) bc I rlly like the layout of this app☹️
Awesome
by QUEEN$! on 2018/10/24 18:15
This app is awesome, just wish that there were a few more features, like video chat with band members, or maybe including a few more loop genre’s? Also, my biggest pet peeve is that there's no way to add in my lyrics, except for adding them in the comments section!!! But other than those two issues that I have, this is by far hands down the best music making app that's available in the app store especially because it's completely free!!!
GAME CHANGER!
by lil2bars on 2019/06/03 18:10
i love the easy to use interface and the endless possibilities of beats i can make/ mess around with. i wish more looper presets would be consistently added like how people can add beats to the “hot beats” list. also there should be a hot feed so artist’s can post their favorite tracks for the public to see, like how rapfame does. otherwise amazing app! i’ve made dozens of songs thru bandlab with just my phone and my headphone mic and am loving it immensely! thank u for this dope app🙏🏻 yours truly, lil2bars
On the right track
by Ben Cliffs on 2018/08/08 19:06
Great idea, love the idea of projects in the cloud (Splice) and creation on all devices (soundtrap). What I would appreciate however is a way to edit the midi - a piano roll style editor. Just advanced features in general. Coming from a DAW background, I’m not expecting everything, just enough to make it usable for a full length track. A sampler would be amazing (ie korg gadget, bm3), and maybe a synth for those sound design heads. Overall there's a lot of room to improve, but for what they are going for it is an excellent app. Love the social aspect!
I had to downgrade my rating
by Gerald A Gray on 2019/02/09 01:57
Just to be clear, I previously left. 5 star review for this app. I love it and would not downgrade for any reason except...I recently purchased an iPhone XS Max, (previously had an iPhone 6 Plus). My issue is that I can no longer use any drum loops or midi instruments. This phone does not have a aux port (which is just stupid). I have an adapter but the loops and midi’s don’t work under any circumstances. (Adapter plugged in, no adapter, no headphones) I basically cannot use the app with my phone at all and can no longer create music the way I was before. I have searched for iPhone XS Max compatibility problems with BandLab but have come up empty.
So far, so good.
by Thedustpan on 2019/05/02 18:16
I have no qualms with this application. It does exactly what it’s advertised to do and it does it effectively. It had lost 1 file that I did not discard and was restored shortly after. Mastering section is useful. The only thing I would change is the fact that when changing keys in the looper, it can sound pixelated or clippy when changing even a minimal amount, which again can sometimes be fixed by closing and reinstating the application.
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!
by MizLumi on 2019/04/14 19:46
Ever since I was little I’ve always wanted to make music. But making music...GOOD music was very hard because I didn’t have the equipment. The good thing is it has all the things you really need and even more, it gives you time to get the equipment that you need so you can slowly get better. I would totally recommend this for any person who wants to make music or even listen to the many talented musicians on this app!
I love the app and the idea
by DonDaDrizzle on 2018/04/21 14:14
However just recently I’ve been working on projects and my recordings will disappear after I recorded them. I’ve also run into a problem where my projects glitch out when I try to publish them and I get kicked off of the application. When I turn my app back on my newly recorded project (multiple at this point) is gone. My library will hold the forked track but none of my recordings are left behind. I can’t speak for everyone but I can say that it’s irritating when you successfully record a freestyle and it disappears.

I just want a few things added to it: Some more vocal effects like an actual LoFi effect, and some more cool sounding effects.
Amazing
by Bruzon64 on 2019/07/18 20:08
Honestly my dream is to become big and every time I’ve tried looking for something that can help me make beats or record it is bad and if you want any kind of good quality you gotta buy some premium thing but this is purely amazing and makes it so much easier to create songs that I like and I made all on my own through the hundreds of great loops available. The desktop version is EVEN better and I honestly don’t know why this app isn’t on all websites regarding making music. My ONLY want is for me to be able to play my beats and songs on repeat or shuffle on the mobile app lol 5 stars for sure

You also share it thru youtube and it’s really easy and great to use specially to start finding your rap fans / voice and they have different themes and genres so if your a singer you could also use this app or like to make beats then is really great for you because everyone on here try to find and do find good beats to sing or rap too

Good app gone bad
by mayn* on 2019/07/15 22:06
I used to record while listening to the instrumentals using my Bluetooth headphones but Im unable to hear sounds using my headphones until I finish the session and save. I don’t know why I have to shout before I can sound audible on my iPhone also unlike the android version where I can fix latency. My android phone also has playback errors. It’s like when I finally find the solution to the problems I had on the IOS version of the application by using the android version it turns out that the android version also has issues that is not on the IOS version. The issue is not from the phones because I used to record on my android phone without playback errors and I also used to record on my iPhone while listening with my Bluetooth headphones. It came to an end when I lost my data on my phones and had to install these updated versions. It’s heartbreaking cos I cant record on my android cos of playback errors and no matter how much I try the instruments just doesn’t align with my recorded vocals. And I used to overlook the fact that I have to shout while using my iPhone7 even though my neighbors have been complaining and still it wont sound really audible. I didn’t have to shout when I had one of the previous versions and I could also listen to sounds with my headset while I have a record session. Unlike this updated versions where I have to finish the session then save, wait for it to sync before I can listen to it which makes it unable for me to edit or listen to my recordings while in the process of making a song.

Time Stretch For Audio PLEASEEEE
by CozmicZombii on 2019/07/14 21:02
I absolutely love everything about this mobile app. I do also enjoy the process of making music using the online daw, but I am very curious to know if the ability to time stretch audio samples will soon be coming to mobile?? Right now I’m having to go online, time stretch the audio, and THEN come back to my iPad to finish my songs. This is fine when I’m already at home, but I don’t always have access to my computer and I’d really like to be able to use my iPad as my stand alone music maker. This app alone is already amazing, if more features from the online daw came to mobile there would be no competition 😏😁😁❤️❤️❤️
The best
by Jazzimonae on 2019/07/14 19:08

Instrument editing issue!!!!!!
by FadeFlayo on 2019/07/13 23:35
Hey so I just got this app 2-3 days ago or so. I managed to make a full song, titled “Overcome” , and published it for testing purposes and to share with friends and others to get feedback. Of course since I published it so early, I would still want to go back and double check the song for any errors or possible creative additions. I began to listen to all of the instrumentals individually to make sure all the notes and placements were right. Then I noticed one major note placement error in the instrument I was using called “Overdrive” in the guitar category. I attempted to edit the measure I wanted, and then the app just crashed. I opened it again and tried opening the note editing system from the page where it has the piano keys instead of clicking on the section of the song and clicking edit, still using the overdrive instrument. It crashed again. I was already frustrated right then and there. I opened the app again, and the song again, and this time I tried editing the notes of a different instrument. It worked! So I go to try and edit the “Overdrive” instrument again, and it crashed again the same exact way, at the same exact time I pressed the button “edit” and the other way on the piano screen. Feeling a little grim now, I opened the app again once more and the project once more. I then literally tested to see if it would let me edit the notes of every individual instrument except for the “Overdrive” instrument. And I was so very much put to ease a little when all of them worked!! I successfully was able to open the note editor screen that can be described as a table with rows and columns representing the notes and measure increments. Then literally imagining the sound of a drumroll in my head I proceeded to open that editor on the last instrument that I desperately needed to work more importantly than the other instruments, because again to remind you this is the instrument, “Overdrive” , that I mistakenly place a note in the wrong place and wished to EASILY and SIMPLY correct. And the only reason I’m writing this review is because there wasn’t a happy ending to that story...and I just hope there is something your team can do to fix whatever issue that is. Final recap*** Every time I attempt to edit the notes on the instrument titled “Overdrive” on the published song titled “Overcome” the app either does the hyphen-Star-circling loading animation in the middle of the screen and the whole screen goes black, and then I’m back at my home screen of my phone, or it just goes immediately to the black screen and I’m back at my home screen. Or in other words the app crashes. Positive note***** I read a lot of the reviews and honestly to all of you who developed this app, you truly deserve every positive thing that was said about this app. It’s truly a beautifully designed contribution to the world of music and I believe it can really take anyone as far as they choose to go. ******** Please just consider helping me with that issue because even if the app allowed me to make a song I felt really good about, as a musician, what’s the point of using a song editing tool if the song editing tool doesn’t allow you to edit exactly what you need it to edit? And also I agree with many others about adding more voice effects, and I really wanted to add the idea of more instruments and sounds too. I’m a guitarist, and I know there’s the option of plugging in your own guitar or bass or similar set ups for playing real instruments, but I just wanted to say that it would be impressive if there were plenty variety of the downloadable midi instruments that can be programmed purely with your phone. And I’m focusing on phones/mobile devices here because of the beautiful idea of making a song whenever and wherever you are. That kind of flexibility to be able to make a song with the instrument you want even if the instrument isn’t physically there is what would make this app even more formidable to many other music editing programs. That, and I would say definite ways to change time signature during a song, and change tempo or bpm during a song, possibly the ability to add multiple effects on an instrument or vocals or sound, and to be able to morph or modify a sound like for example if I had an instrument sustain a note but wanted the note to slide up or down to an octave or any desired steps. Kinda like if you were to do bends or slides on a guitar. That’s all I have to say. And again PLEASE most importantly, can you help me fix my issue??????????? ********************** I wrote this whole thing a few days ago but after using the app again more I have a serious issue. I started a new song and still am having the app crash whenever I try to edit the notes of an instrument. Now I can’t even make any progress because I can’t even add one note without the app crashing.........I’m very disappointed......
Love it

This app is actually realy good if you’re trying to make a beat to make yourself known. But if we could get a little more genre’s for the looper that would be great.

If you make music you must have BandLab!
by MelanieMabel on 2019/07/10 19:29
I don’t upload very often on BandLab because promoting on the app is a little confusing. Definitely would if I understood it better. I’m still giving this app 5 stars because The mastering option is AMAZING! Having all your music ready in a program. Makes it very easy to use and do literally anything on.(slow music down, record music, make music) I recommend BandLab to everyone I know and given the chance I would love to partner with BandLab. DOWNLOAD DOWNLOAD DOWNLOAD (use it on the internet as well!) -Mari!

You can make your own beats and I really like it a lot I recommend it to anybody who is into music production.

MIDI Instruments
by Todily boring on 2019/07/09 00:24
Some of the MIDI Instruments like the clarinet and flute aren't working, and my "band" would sound a lot better with all of the winds and brass.
Nice app

I love it
I love bandlab but
by Gopoptart12 on 2019/07/08 14:48
It won’t load anything. When I press play on a song it just loads and nothing happens. It’s my own songs and my friends songs. ., I have a great connection I’ve tried it at home with my WiFi. I’ve tried it with LTE, I’ve tried it at a restaurant with their WiFi, nothing seems to be loading. I’ve even deleted the app and downloaded it again. I’m thinking it’s an issue on your end. Band lab is awesome but lately it’s been very laggy and annoying to work with.
Trashhhhh
by Gmanz23 on 2019/07/08 03:21
I literally try to click on a package of beats and it says the mix editor isn’t working what am I supposed to do. Says u guys fixed bugs a day ago but this is happening? Oml I’m on apple btw.
Website and App nonfunctional
by Yasmine Omar on 2019/07/07 23:38
The website and app have always worked well for me but now for the past week+ I can’t even open the mix editor on any of my screens without it sounding fuzzed and just glitching completely. Previously saved private projects of mine have just disappeared after I tried to open them. I love BandLab but I don’t know what’s wrong with it right now.
Did an update
by "Fuvk" A Nickname on 2019/07/07 20:22
Can’t listen to my Bluetooth Speaker anymore until I publish the track, what’s with that? It only plays off of the phone speakers when in the Mix Editor, not off of the Bluetooth speakers like the Older version, I don’t even get the “ Bluetooth may delay recording” message. Please fix. So It can rate it 10⭐️🌟⭐️🌟⭐️🌟⭐️🌟⭐️🌟’s
Fix the app dude

Handy
Perfect for sketching
by JjjClayFroTon17345 on 2019/07/06 19:17
Great app to sketch out a cool song or beat to be later finished in another program or on a computer. Also, the community aspect is a useful way to show your music and find other likeminded artists for inspiration or collaboration. Runs very smooth. I have had little to no problems with performance or crashing. They are constantly working on bugs (no app ever made comes without bugs) so I’m always confident working in BANDLAB. Check it out, it’s free! You’d be crazy not to at least see what it has to offer. I understand that as artist we all have different needs while working in our mediums and this app serves many of mine. Maybe it will also serve your needs; there’s only one way to find out....
Can’t listen to music
by abcefglikmi on 2019/07/06 03:37
Only some music works I can’t play most of them and to play the songs I wanna listen too have to uninstall then re install the app just to listen to it once I just wanna listen to my stepdads music
Bluetooth for iPhones

For some reason the Bluetooth will not work with my band lab. It worked before the update though

by malblasted on 2019/07/05 22:56
Recently when I open the app and try to play my revision it won’t play. It might be a bug but if you could fix it that would be appreciated, thank you.
Solid
by RiseInShine195 on 2019/07/05 22:35
This app is pretty solid but lately for some reason, it’s not letting me play some of my music or others when I hit the play button, it just keeps loading and never play. Need to check that out and also the syncing problem, everytime I saved a song it just kicks me out the app and it just keeps syncing and I have to restore my song I made and save it over and eventually it’ll save.

8 out of 10
by Someone Who Wrote Something on 2019/07/04 15:50
This app has many pros and then many cons (like most things in life already do) but with saying that I try to look at the positive side of things and yes looking at the negative side of things can be very useful as well as beneficial but in this case I would focus mainly on the positive stuff rather than negative because this app has all I need. 8 out of 10 (great app). If you want more in deep-thought feedback be happy to reach out to me otherwise this is what I have.
I CANT USE MY ACCOUNT!
by Brayan Casino on 2019/07/04 11:01
My account got replaced by the same email i signed in with i’m trying to get my account back please bandlab help out i was gonna record a song. but other than that this app is amazing highly recommended if you’re interested in recording your music!
Great for beginners and simple producers!
by FortuneCoochie on 2019/07/04 05:58
My experience with this app has been amazing, but there are some drawbacks I would like to point out. After I really started getting into music production, I saw that many of the tools that would be a no brained are not available in the app. There is no option for triplets or any note other than a 16th or higher. Velocity of each note is not accessible on mobile, only PC. Even then, the velocity controls are a bit odd compared to other music production softwares that are FREE. Those two are probably my biggest drawbacks for this app. Other than that, if you are a beginner producer looking for an easy music production app, BandLab is for you. I suggest getting LMMS if you want to go more serious and still be in the free range on PC or Mac.
Bluetooth and Extended songs.
by TheReaperOfSouls98 on 2019/07/04 05:00
So far, it’s only three trees for me. BandLab used be a forest five with a bunch of trees, but so far it’s only been three lonely trees. What happened to Bluetooth on here? I can’t even make a song on the go because my Bluetooths don’t work. They work fine listening, however trying to create a song doesn’t work. Come on B! The extensions of songs. How come you can only make them six minutes long? An added feature to make longer songs would be very nice. Until the Bluetooth situation gets fixed, or an ability to make longer songs, it remains a three bee. Please get yourselves situated.
Amazing app

Why? Why why why???
by Josiah Miles on 2019/07/02 19:21
Please, what was the point of the update??? All you did was make it where I can no longer edit the beats I produce, there were no serious problems before that, and now you've created one that makes the app basically unusable 🤦🏽‍♂️ if its not broke, don't fix it. I make a rhythm using the instruments, and as soon and I listen to it the first time I can no longer edit any of it and the app just breaks down, Ive tried numerous times, Ive logged out and logged back in, and Im tired of undownloading and redownloading the app because y'all keep creating problems trying to "make your app fancier" or whatever the point of these updates are, I used to love this app, but I cannot stand having to redownload all my wanted instruments again everytime I have to delete and redownload the app because of the unnecessary problems your updates keep creating. Fix this problem, and then LEAVE THE APP ALOOOOONE, we like it the way it is, don't make me switch to Garage Band cuz y'all keep making your app more and more unreliable, I don't want to do that but if it means I don't need to worry about my music constantly getting postponed, deleted, everything this app keeps causing, I will have to.
Presently pleases !!!

It keep crashing
by Janecia Taylor on 2019/07/01 17:57
The people who made this app need to fix this, it keep crashing, and when you do i proudly will change this review to 3 or 4 stars.
Microphone
by Andre W. Foster on 2019/07/01 17:55
So my apple earbuds have a mic that i used to rap through to make songs on bandlab but now when i plug them in the mic doesnt work. Instead, my phone itself turns into the mic and it makes it really hard to record music. I assume that this is something with the app and i cant even produce anything off here anymore.
Great
by Auggie L. on 2019/07/01 17:09
Couldn’t ask for more for free!
Powerful, but confused
by Oxhammer on 2019/07/01 17:07
My band loves to use this app to record practicing and share the files instantly with each other. But the interface for collaboration is awkward and confusing. Instead the app creators want it to be used for social sharing, which makes no sense organically. Why would you use a recording app for social media?
Great app
by nobody1298 on 2019/07/01 09:16
This is the best app you could possibly make songs on.
messing up💔
by cassandrahxo on 2018/12/06 04:10
i love this app but there’s a few things, i saved a project private, because i wanted to fix it later, and i fixed it today, saved it and then put it out publicly and then it didn’t even post, all I see now is my older version that is private and not the fixed one. it disappeared after i saved and posted it ☹️ also, on the website, i put in my instagram bio for people to listen to the music i released, but now when they click it they can see only SONG TITLES OF SONGS I HAVE NOT PUT OUT. private songs !!!! “recent projects”!!! i do not want them to see what i’m working on i want them to be able to listen to the songs i have out for public only, now they can’t even listen to my previous songs i put out. it’s SO disappointing, you can’t even search for me (or anyone) on the website, only copy and paste my link only to see the titles of songs i am working on that are “private”. private should mean that only I can see them. apparently not. and if the website only has you to sign in to listen , that’s disappointing as well😞 this app has been so amazing helping me but all the sudden this changed, not posting my finished recording and the website problems. PLEASE FIX TO HOW IT USED TO BE😭😭😭
Lost my voice audio😢🙏🏻
by Young CoN_15 on 2019/06/01 03:59
So it’s a great app overall and I finally ran into an issue I made a brand new song was very proud and about to post it and I clicked save so I could go and tweak some things and make my audio more clear then only to realize the app only saved the beat and not my voice audio and my lyrics disappeared that I had written down aswell I’m overall really disappointed that out of all issues hat could have happened it was this issue I have never had issues until now I would love a reply from a developer or someone that can help me because maybe it got lost in like the apps cloud or something but I worked so hard on this song and now I have nothing but the beat no none of my vocals are there anymore, and my lyrics have been erased aswell off the app please someone write back and please fix this bug on your app at this point I’ve tried all I could to retrieve my lost vocals and lyrics so I’m trying to the developer please help me because I was really proud of this song and I hate dissapointing all my fans I have everywhere😢🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
I have one problem...
by Allen Grayson on 2018/12/31 20:51
BandLab is an excellent app for music making and listening. I absolutely love it. That is, until a problem occurred. I went to get into the app just yesterday and instead of going in straight to my profile and the normal screen, it had the entire intro log in screen show up as if I logged out of my account, which I never do. When I tried logging in using my information, is kept on saying that I have “incorrect credentials”. So, I tried logging in with my google account instead. I thought it would work, but then I got a pop-up saying that my email is “already linked to a different account type”. So now, I can’t log in AT ALL, or access any of my stuff, which is really frustrating. It also makes me worried that my account somehow got lost, along with all of my stuff on it. I still get notifications telling me that people liked my song, or started following me, but even when I tap on the notification banner that shows up at the top of the screen to take me to the app, NOTHING HAPPENS. If you could please help in any way or give some sort of advice as to what I should do, thank you. My music is very important to me and I don’t want it to be lost forever with my account. Thank you.
It’s a top quality app
by TroyingMyBest on 2018/03/29 14:00
This is a very good quality app, if you want to be an artist and make music but you don’t have any equipment at all, this app is the app to go too. Amazing app. Oh and by the way, I just want somethings added to the app, can you make more voice fx? Basically all of them just add a simple echo at different levels. Add a deep and raspy effect, add an effect that makes you sound like you’re through a phone, add an effect that makes your voice very faint and but it still stands out, and many more! I would appreciate it if you can add those things, it’ll really make my music sound better! Also another suggestion is too add a litte more options to audio, like make it fade in/out and you can add how long you want the fade to go for, you know that type of stuff, I hope you can see this and take my review in consideration! Peace and love
I love bandlab but sometimes it’s retarded
by endmepls on 2018/06/03 06:14
OK bandlab pisses me off sometimes when I upload a song and I select the genre and picture for it sometimes it just won’t upload under the genre I selected Or with the right picture and it really frustrates me because I can’t seem to get my music where I want it to be without band lab changing the genre for no apparent reason and then when you go to delete it to re-upload it sometimes it will not delete it and the song will become glitched and unremovable and it really aggravates me having three versions of the exact same song on my profile and it triggers my OCD seeing a massive amount of unremovable songs on my profile like CAN I JUST HAVE A CLEAN PROFILE WITH 1 OF EVERY SONG NOT 3 COPYS!!!!!!! And also for some apparent reason not even bandlab support knows how to fix it I’ve tried to explain but every time the advice was useless UGHHHHHHHH!!!!!. *sigh*... so basically in conclusion if you want your music to get herd I would highly recommend a bandlab it’s really a great app but sometimes it just is so slow clunky and glitchy and The suppose it “support” they offer doesn’t really help for some of the things that is wrong with the app
Overall amazing! But...
by yungmvltxn on 2018/02/23 11:01
there are still a few things you have to work on! For example the AutoTune Feature, it sounds all muffled up if I want to use it, also you should add more Vocal Effects for example a Slapback Effect or a Distortion Effect and a Vocal Harmony or Voice Pitch Changer. There are all sorts of ideas, these Features above I suggest. I use this App almost everyday and I create amazing songs with it. Also, please try to change the Microphone Frequency or make it sound better because it doesn't sound that bad but it could be better as well. Just make it sound a bit more realistic like the Application "Take" does. They make it sound really good and also have many Effects. And please make the Beats or Music that you import automatically change the BPM to the BPM of the Beat. For example I upload a Beat with 140BPM, but BandLab still tells me its 120BPM, which is why I have to first add my Vocal Tracks, then change the BPM, then add the Beat to match the BPM. I don't mean to stress you add, those are just things to make your App even better! Love you, keep going forward!

Disappointed
by D,nickname on 2018/12/22 02:13
I was really excited when I first got this app. It was easy to use, compatible for downloading, and offered a variety of loops. However, yesterday, after having it only two weeks all of my saved tracks deleted on me. I kept all of my tracks private since I was still figuring out the “lab” portion so I didn’t share the majority of my music except for on track out of probably 10 so far. Luckily the ones I liked I did back up but it was just unsettling to have everything disappear like that from every folder on the app (including the library and my saved folders). Everything was gone. I did some research digging online and found that deleting and re-downloading the app can sometimes bring them back and sure enough it did now. But it’s just a strange clutch to still be happening after people have reported it and there have been updates. If the app becomes more secure then it’s on its way to being a huge tool for music makers!
Dank App!!!
by Coronaconfidential on 2019/04/26 22:12
This is an awesome app that has such tools that can make anyone feel like a rockstar. From being able to upload and play with your music, recordings, collab, network and make money off this app. However they don’t give the recognition to the people who’s been on here deserving for at least a check mark such as the other players have been able to receive. I have 12,000 followers and my band has reached up to almost 95,000 listeners, still no check mark. It’d be nice to show your bandlab community spreading the word and making people famous and not the app itself, it’s just ENHANCING our music credibility the rest is on your person alone. Have fun with this but apparently don’t invest because it won’t even get you a check mark. Listen to Loudpvckmobb with king dvbz and his girl queen dvbz and the rest of the mobb they go hard. Find us on every platform because bandlab helped us get there. Enjoy!
Wonderful
by Gliiz on 2018/08/18 03:13
This app is amazing, the BandLab team is always going to fix the issue if there is one, it’s probably happening when they are updating and making the app better, So be patient and work on a song lol!! I’ve been able to really open my horizons and get creative more than I ever thought possible because of all the options like collaborating, I’m a singer but Its so easy to learn that I’ve even made some beats, I didn’t know I could do that....I feel BandLab helps you discover your talent or talents. It’s so fun to make music and let others see how you express yourself and you never know if a song may touch someone so share it even if it’s not perfect in your eyes! Thank you BandLab I’m grateful for y’all! <3. Another few perks...it’s free! And no ads!!! And I’ve made lots of friends in the communities I’ve joined.
Very pleased & female friendly
by MissRoar! on 2018/04/06 03:22
I’ve been using this app for almost a year now! I really love all the updates. I’m more comfortable with this app more than any other app. I only have 2 problems: 1. When I use the desktop version to go in and edit, I can never hear the song. The audio is always messed up. So, I never know what I’m editing sound wise. I just have to guess and hope I get it right. So, I’ve been sticking to my basic reverb of only 22% on every song and that’s it. I’ve used google chrome & regular browsers, switched computers & still the same problem. This would be a GREAT FIX! 2. I would love to have fade in/out options for endings. Or, basically any way to be able to switch up endings. Overall it’s a GREAT APP! I find myself using it more than other apps I’ve used longer.
Perfect for sketching

Needs to be able to duplicate
by Bnaeefbwrnegnegnwf af wv on 2018/05/26 01:59
Just like on computer DAWS, you need to have us be able to copy our line of beats (per say the piano part, the drum part, etc) and make it loop. It’s annoying to have to spend three minutes tapping on the same things just to get that sound throug the whole song mixed with mistakes. All I ask for in this current moment is the ability to duplicate our track/line, and repeat it as long as we want too throughout the song. If that’s available pls let me know I can’t find any info on it or any options thank you. Also let us cut some parts out of our song, sometimes we make it louder or there’s too much white noise in between. Again, loved your response thank you!! But duplicate, duplicating is so important. Re-recording a chorus to the exact key and length is super hard. I would love to be able to copy, and paste my areas. Duplicating.
Fire!
by young toast on 2018/10/08 05:37
I like this cuz I have access at my projects not yet finished but not just that I have access at every thing I make anywhere i go I’ve actually utilized the web version in my lap top and been able to Pull it up on my cell phone later when I’ve had a breakthrough from a writers block and been able to lay it down rite then and there in my car with some Mac headphones and clean it up later, there’s some egos when it comes to the whole tryinna get recognition through this app cuz most the dudes on here don’t have anything poppin in real life there social media thugs so you may run into that but if your raw and talented you probably won’t even noticed tbh you’ll be too busy making hits I’m out- young toaster
Solid App
by Keenaaiiin on 2019/05/01 02:25
So I just really use the looper so I can’t speak for the other features and uses for the app, but for a free app this seems to have a lot of tools for making music on the go. Like I said, I only use the looper, which is great to make an instrumental to pass some time or a long car ride. I’ve tried many other free looper apps and all of them are generic with tons of adds and one or two sets of different sounds. This app has loops of real instruments and isn’t all just techno style. Unfortunately you can’t change the sounds for the loop packs or mix and match between different loop packs. But out of all loopers our there this is by far the best one I have been able to find.

Static but the Furture
by LynellsiaMarie on 2019/06/21 13:31
This is one of my Favorite Music apps by far! The Mix approach is very acceptable! There’s options that are unlike any app I’ve ever experienced in making music for 7 years on my phone. This app is truly one for a beginner, and and established artist. My only downfall is the static that comes with producing a track...., which is a pretty big one seeing there’s no way to share the professionalism of this app with listeners or friends, because of the “Static interference!” Please fix this if possible. I know this app is truly going places! ——————— Updated June/2019 Bandlab adds a mix of Genres continuously! And works extremely hard to fix any problems. It’s an app that’s worth using! All your content is your own, plus you have the option to collaborate with other artist. With proper equipment you can make good, and Stable music!
Great idea for an app!
by Google search Search on 2019/03/07 21:34
So I joined BandLab last week. Actually, it's really even better than some music apps like GarageBand and other stuff I tried. First off, you can follow and listen to other peoples music. You can also publish your own! That's why it's really nice. All the Mehdi instruments and also loops are really nice! It would be good if you made some accessibility especially with voiceover, which is a screen reading tool that Apple made. Also, it be even nice to add more stuff from the midi instruments, including Dubstep more of that. Your other dubstep loops were pretty nice! And also more instruments? That would be nice. Anyways keep up the good work! I haven't really published anything yet since I'm kind of just messing around with it. No worries, but I will soon get to it
Everything keeps deleting, not sure what im doing wrong
by Everything Keeps deleting on 2018/04/27 17:18
I love this app, everything about it is amazing, except for the fact I can’t actually save anything I create. I had no problems when I first downloaded this, but after a month of having it, half of everything I made deletes after I click the “save” button, which totally defeats the whole purpose of save. But yeah, the only thing that doesn’t get deleted is my imported soundtrack and then maybe like, 18 seconds of voice audio, the rest just disappears. I thought maybe it was my storage but I have half my memory empty and then i thought maybe i just have too many songs but i only have like 4, maybe thats too much? Would absolutely love if you guys could do anything or maybe explain what i did wrong. Anyways sorry for this long review, I just really love the app and would love to get on it again. I even recommended this app to friends! Thanks have a good day.
Best around
by Fozzio_TheGreat on 2018/05/03 15:11
Amazing app only rating 1 star because 2 days ago it just stopped saving properly, whenever it does save it deletes everything when i come back so now I’m doing a weird method hoping it doesn’t reset certain parts. Normally I’d ask support but they’ve proven quite well to possibly not even be human; slow response times and help so idiotic it feels copy and pasted. EDIT: after a patch went through to fix this problem I still can’t save for jack; gonna reinstall again hopefully with results this time. Edit: that patch did literally nothing app is actually useless if it doesn’t save anything Edit: with the latest patch the app is back to normal 👍🏾
Amazing (previously)
by Meth0dman on 2018/05/28 20:04
The below comment was two years ago when the app was unbelievable and a totally game changer... it has since become buggy and unreliable..Support suggest that it is my connection that is the issue though most of my bandmates have the same issue and the fact that I actually work from home for a living and access my employers network remotely with my fiber optic network with no issues . I also am hesitant to trust my music with this app as well if I record I either am no longer able to access my music or there is a red arrow that goes up suggesting the music has not uploaded to the server either way it has become really unreliable and I am very very disappointed as a result. I am less then a novice when it comes to the technical side of making music as I am a writer that said, this platform is amazing in my opinion!
Time Stretch For Audio PLEASEEEE
by CozmicZombii on 2019/07/14 21:02
I absolutely love everything about this mobile app. I do also enjoy the process of making music using the online daw, but I am very curious to know if the ability to time stretch audio samples will soon be coming to mobile?? Right now I’m having to go online, time stretch the audio, and THEN come back to my iPad to finish my songs. This is fine when I’m already at home, but I don’t always have access to my computer and I’d really like to be able to use my iPad as my stand alone music maker. This app alone is already amazing, if more features from the online daw came to mobile there would be no competition 😏😁😁❤️❤️❤️
Issues have been fixed, thanks!
by Jamespugli on 2018/07/06 21:08
First off I will happily change to 5 stars, but when I record something and want to record something on top of that track it re-records what is playing through my headphones. So the app is pretty much unusable if you want to lay a guitar track and sing on a separate track. It turns into a muddy mess. Maybe I’m just doing something wrong, but the answer isn’t obvious to me. Update: I know functionally how to lay multiple tracks on the app, the problem is when I play over a track, it records what I’m playing AND re-records what I’m hearing through the headphones. So I’ll have two tracks one lone guitar track and one with live guitar AND the oringinal guitar track. After one guitar line everything’s a muddy mess. This includes vocals where it re-records the guitar that was already played on track one and records the vocals on track 2, to muddy results. Update: This issue has been fixed, the bandlab team was helpful and it’s once again the best app for recording music on your phone!
Best Music App (BUT...)
by Swole Shady on 2018/02/04 21:27
No doubt this is the best app to make your own music with. However, I think it’d be a whole lot more enjoyable if the user is able to actually save their work, as in being able to export their music from the app to his/her phone. The only way to access my songs is to go to the app itself. If anything, there should be a BandLab Pro where there’s an option to save the music that’s created. If the user enjoys his/her BandLab experience, they can purchase BandLab Pro and have access to all features, like saving their files to their phones. That way, they can use their own work for projects like lyric videos or short films. Please do something about this or at least consider it.
Accessability
by The Georgie Verse on 2019/06/21 04:30
I am blind and enjoy using this app, however, I cannot click on my notifications. The tabs at the bottom of the screen are not labeled with words, and neither are the buttons. Voice over cannot read icons, so words would be helpful. When I go to my notifications, it tells me how long ago it was, but will not let me click on it, or tell me what it is actually about. Also, when you try adding on more than one track, voice over is rendered completely useless. For blind music makers and singers like myself, BandLab was the one thing we had. Please keep it that way, because garage band is not that great either, and you still have my vote. Just fix these few things, because your accessibility used to be better.
I recommend if you like to rap/if you like to put it on SoundCloud,etc.
by sheonte101 on 2018/08/18 08:26
I’m a dancer but I also love to rap and using this app was interesting because I discover a lot from voice control to using beats and you can create your own plus I can use this app to share my songs/tracks on SoundCloud,instagram,musically,contacts,ect. plus it’s mostly free and it’s a lot of free fun stuff you can do from collab to making a band and many more so I’ll say get the app and at least try and you can also add/cut parts in your track you want or don’t like and if you want to find me,I’m princess_slaylit & SoundCloud- princess_savage
Perfect for track making
by JonBrown[FrostByte] on 2018/04/10 19:15
I’ve used over 30 different Apple Store band making apps and the best ones have never taken me as far as Band Lab. I genuinely love this app because of it’s versatility and simple interface. A lot of the time trying to find the right distortion for a Pantera song is hard or trying to get a phaser that goes beyond what my Fender has installed, all of this is made simple with Band Lab. I do not pay for the app, I pay so that it stays with me longer. This app is so worth getting if you have trouble getting multiple guitarists for a certain riff you want to make or pull of. Bless Band Lab
Love bandlab
by @chesyre on 2019/04/29 05:55
Bandlab has helped me start my music career.. I don’t have a lot of money right now and not in the best place in my life so I don’t have a lot of equipment or software to work with. But in the perfect time of my life to make some of my best music, and band lab has helped me start my dream. Whether I’m famous or not or make it in any way doesn’t matter I just want to make music and see what I’m capable of and where my potential can go! Thank you so much bandlab please keep improving and adding to this this is a must have for underground music makers and idk what I did without this app before!
WORLD'S BEST APP.
by Archangelshiro on 2017/11/30 01:48
Seriously. I don't usually write reviews, but it blew my mind clean open when I found that not only is this COMPLETELY free (I actually went looking for a place to throw my money at them and couldn't find one), it's insanely easy to use for people who want to record and mix music. The cloud storage feature makes it easy to record on phone then pick it up on the computer later, God why haven't I heard of this before?! Told all my music buddies about it. So far the only downside is that it's tricky to find that publish button the fist time you use it, but other than that, 10/10, best app in the world for music makers. I've actually spent decent amounts of money on higher end recording studio programs, but BandLab does it all. For free. Can't say enough good things. For real though, where can I send you guys money?? You deserve it for making such a masterpiece of an app.
Ipad landscape
by stratfanman on 2018/10/28 16:58
This app would be perfect if it responded intuitively to landscape and portrait mode on the ipad pro 12.9 The ipad fits on the stand in landscape,not portrait,so when i want to read anything using the app i have to take it off the stand and hold it in the air in portrait mode. i cant just read it on its stand,although i could read it correctly online,but when i go to do any actual work in the app,im holding the ipad in the air sideways so i can maneuver through the lists to work on a song. -and when finishing a song having to hold the ipad in the air with one hand as you choose a picture,genre,description,collaborators ,save and publish...maybe a desktop style ios version? Please?
BandLab
by J1 I.N.C on 2018/09/20 15:24
I have been on BandLab for over a year now the platform to share music is awesome and there are so many plugins and now u can also use cakewalk now the down side I use BandLab about 6 hrs a day and at times it doesn’t play songs doesn’t show messages or It will say it saved a song but go to my projects and it never saved the app is awesome like I said and I understand there are a lot of users so that can slow stuff down and they try to put up updates every day which helps but never really fix’s the problems thanks for the app just please try and address the problems thx J1
Amazing but buggy
by Us hbu on 2018/02/20 21:58
I love the app! It is great and really give people an opportunity to put their craft into reality but there is way to many bugs from this last update, i open some projects and it wont show me the history and i have problems seeing last revisions they take forever to sync now. it wasn’t like this before and i have a bunch of notifications and invites but they don’t show up it just says i have them! When the app is working properly i love it but please fix all these new bugs and a big update would be adding some more effect to give people more diversity🔥
Bluetooth and Extended songs.
by TheReaperOfSouls98 on 2019/07/04 05:00
So far, it’s only three trees for me. BandLab used be a forest five with a bunch of trees, but so far it’s only been three lonely trees. What happened to Bluetooth on here? I can’t even make a song on the go because my Bluetooths don’t work. They work fine listening, however trying to create a song doesn’t work. Come on B! The extensions of songs. How come you can only make them six minutes long? An added feature to make longer songs would be very nice. Until the Bluetooth situation gets fixed, or an ability to make longer songs, it remains a three bee. Please get yourselves situated.
Fantastic
by D4rk_Wolf on 2018/03/21 20:37
Free and amazing. It works perfectly with my BandLab link! I can do anything with this app, the built in sounds aren’t perfect, but where it shines is the ability to import and export. I can do my cleans in BandLab, export to GarageBand and bias FX for the dirt and X drummer for drums, and import it into bandlab! The community is friendly, and I feel like it’s a good outlet for creativity. I am eager to see how it evolves. This company also now has the rights to some of cakewalks stuff, so here’s hoping Sonar is on the way, definitely a group to keep your eyes on for the near future!
Good but too easy to delete things
by NotD-boi on 2019/05/29 21:19
I love this app and it is an amazing was to make all sorts of amazing music but i was logging out of a revision I had saved then I went back into it a few hours later and it haven’t saved, I lost all my work and had to start again from scratch, it seems like that you have to finish a song from the first time you open the mix editor. Everything else about the app is great though and it is very cool and a great way to make music. I recommend BandLab to any person looking for a way to start their music career.
Serious Issues
by Stockton Gunafornia on 2018/11/22 16:49
The app is not letting me publish my tracks. I’ll record a track and attempt to have it published but after the fact my track stays private. And when I try to play it back the app tells me “Can’t play broken song” or “Processing in progress “ . I have been a BandLanb user for years now, it will be a disgrace if I have to delete this app due to these issues that occur on the regular basis. And according to others, I’m not the only user that’s been facing these terrible issues.
Good app
by msfit tha kid on 2019/04/14 20:10
I’ve been using bandlab for a year now and I’ve enjoyed making music with all the different voice effects and auto tunes that bandlab has to offer and the process has overall been smooth. However recently there has been a problem with the servers saying there’s no WiFi connection when I am completely connected to WiFi and it locks me out of my music not allowing me to access my songs. Overall this is a great app and it’s fun for upcoming artist such as myself but this definitely needs to be fixed with bandlab
Excellent app for musicians
by therosesavage on 2019/03/12 14:58
I’ve been using this app for over a year now, and the functionality of it is so simple. Anybody can use this app, experienced musicians, beginner musicians, etc. You can choose what kind of genre you want to create a song out of, you can choose the key it’s set in, and you can choose the timing. I typically use the loops because it helps me write songs better and much more structure. It’s an intricate app that allows users to create music with ease. Highly recommend 11/10.
Phenomenal
by MigalFred on 2018/06/03 20:06
I usually don’t do reviews on any apps, but this one deserved it. I am a musician who does covers and original songs, and this is prefect for it. I tried out so many different apps, but none of them really appealed to me. When I found this app, I thought it would be the same kind of thing, but I was so wrong. I feel very free with this app, and I would highly recommend it to anybody who has had the same experience as me with mobile music apps. 10/10
A few unsatisfying quarks
by Icewheel12 on 2019/07/17 17:26
So first of all, I want to say that this is an amazing app, I love it. Buuuuttt, there are a few quarks. The app itself is a bit touchy, and no that is not a pun. But when you want to edit your notes, it can be difficult just to do something simple like that. For instance, when I’m trying to scroll across in edit mode, I accidentally make new notes. It’s a bit touchy. And also you need to be able to zoom in and out of edit mode. Scrolling that much is kind of unnecessary. Anyways thanks for reading and I will rate 5 if these quarks are fixed. Thanks again
Really great! But some glitches
by the gusie on 2019/01/21 19:20
I’ve had BandLab for about 4 months and have really been enjoying it, but recently the app has been crashing more than usual. Whenever it crashes it logs me out and I have to log back in. But 9 out of ten times it takes me back to the original log in screen, until it finally lets me in after trying over and over. This morning it started crashing and I can’t even open the app. The app has been really great so far, but this is really frustrating. Please help. Thanks.
😕🙁
by james1348 on 2019/06/07 01:17
I like the app it’s rlly good for recording but I can’t figure out how to edit the music there’s no reverb option there’s no double option there’s no reverse option without knowing how to properly edit off of this app (or not having those features on the app) it’s basically a copy of voice memos on my iPhone I hope I can figure out how to use editing features like that (or I hope that there even on the app) bc I rlly like the layout of this app☹️
Awesome
by QUEEN$! on 2018/10/24 18:15
This app is awesome, just wish that there were a few more features, like video chat with band members, or maybe including a few more loop genre’s? Also, my biggest pet peeve is that there's no way to add in my lyrics, except for adding them in the comments section!!! But other than those two issues that I have, this is by far hands down the best music making app that's available in the app store especially because it's completely free!!!
GAME CHANGER!
by lil2bars on 2019/06/03 18:10
i love the easy to use interface and the endless possibilities of beats i can make/ mess around with. i wish more looper presets would be consistently added like how people can add beats to the “hot beats” list. also there should be a hot feed so artist’s can post their favorite tracks for the public to see, like how rapfame does. otherwise amazing app! i’ve made dozens of songs thru bandlab with just my phone and my headphone mic and am loving it immensely! thank u for this dope app🙏🏻 yours truly, lil2bars
On the right track
by Ben Cliffs on 2018/08/08 19:06
Great idea, love the idea of projects in the cloud (Splice) and creation on all devices (soundtrap). What I would appreciate however is a way to edit the midi - a piano roll style editor. Just advanced features in general. Coming from a DAW background, I’m not expecting everything, just enough to make it usable for a full length track. A sampler would be amazing (ie korg gadget, bm3), and maybe a synth for those sound design heads. Overall there's a lot of room to improve, but for what they are going for it is an excellent app. Love the social aspect!
I had to downgrade my rating
by Gerald A Gray on 2019/02/09 01:57
Just to be clear, I previously left. 5 star review for this app. I love it and would not downgrade for any reason except...I recently purchased an iPhone XS Max, (previously had an iPhone 6 Plus). My issue is that I can no longer use any drum loops or midi instruments. This phone does not have a aux port (which is just stupid). I have an adapter but the loops and midi’s don’t work under any circumstances. (Adapter plugged in, no adapter, no headphones) I basically cannot use the app with my phone at all and can no longer create music the way I was before. I have searched for iPhone XS Max compatibility problems with BandLab but have come up empty.
So far, so good.
by Thedustpan on 2019/05/02 18:16
I have no qualms with this application. It does exactly what it’s advertised to do and it does it effectively. It had lost 1 file that I did not discard and was restored shortly after. Mastering section is useful. The only thing I would change is the fact that when changing keys in the looper, it can sound pixelated or clippy when changing even a minimal amount, which again can sometimes be fixed by closing and reinstating the application.
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!
by MizLumi on 2019/04/14 19:46
Ever since I was little I’ve always wanted to make music. But making music...GOOD music was very hard because I didn’t have the equipment. The good thing is it has all the things you really need and even more, it gives you time to get the equipment that you need so you can slowly get better. I would totally recommend this for any person who wants to make music or even listen to the many talented musicians on this app!
I love the app and the idea
by DonDaDrizzle on 2018/04/21 14:14
However just recently I’ve been working on projects and my recordings will disappear after I recorded them. I’ve also run into a problem where my projects glitch out when I try to publish them and I get kicked off of the application. When I turn my app back on my newly recorded project (multiple at this point) is gone. My library will hold the forked track but none of my recordings are left behind. I can’t speak for everyone but I can say that it’s irritating when you successfully record a freestyle and it disappears.
