Works, But needs more 3/5
This application gives people ability to make music as an outsider, but the creator of this app is lack of creativity, although this can make music in a easy way, this is all it has... About 9 months ago, I requested for an update for more music lines(you have a limited line to put your music in), but they never did anything about it, this is kinda disappointing, but this is made for music outsiders, if you want better applications to create songs, don't use a mobile device, use a desktop application such as FL Studio.
Thumbs up for the instant support
Great! But limited instrument usage 4/5
I love this app! It's a great music making app, but I would like to use more than only 8 instruments at a time. I'm working on a song and It sounded good, but it need one more thing. I couldn't put it it, though, because the instrument list was full. I would love it if you could make a quick update to expand the instrument usage a little more!
This app is LIT for anyone who wants to make original music without using the complicated features of GarageBand or FL Studio , here are a few small problems I would like to report
Problem 1: you are not able to have lots of instruments in 1 song, fix this please so that u can scroll to have double the amount of instruments.
Problem 2: When ur Medly App is out of date (there is an update waiting for u that u have not yet downloaded, it immediately says ur purchases have been forgotten , and if u click restore it won't work, the only way to get ur purchases back is to update the app.
By the way if u have questions and need to email the medly team they reply almost instantly! And are great at helping u fix your problem!!!
Update: I also think there should be more SoundPacks like: Dubstep, Techno and IDM, I am not saying the SoundPacks we have right now are bad, there could be more.
Sometimes I stay up late and can't sleep and this is when my mind seems the most creative. I create these melodies easily and it's fun
It's good, but it needs MOAR!!! 5/5
By Scorpion the dragon killer
So, I really like this app. It's really good, but it needs more. I tried to make some jazz songs, but it didn't workout how I planned because there was no option to do what I wanted to do (I was going to say 3/4 time, but I wasn't sure if it was right). Also, if there was another pack dedicated to sound effects (seperate from the FX pack) like bubble pops, car crash noises, etc. that would be very appreciated.
AWESOME but please do this 1 thing 🙏 5/5
By Messiah Eastland
AWESOME!!! (But please can you add a Megaloviania sound font?) and if you don't know what that is go to YouTube and type in megalovania and you'll hear the sound font 😁👍Please do it! ,•~•, I want to make a Megalovania!
Slick GUI 4/5
The best feature this app is that it lets you see the notes of the tracks other than the one you are editing. Top of the line apps like Gadget, GarageBand and other sequencers do not do this. If you are programming a song by intent and not just getting lucky randomly noodling, this function is indispensable. Otoh, my biggest disappointment was that the app does not have realtime midi output. The devs think their users don't need it. Really?
Holy Cow 5/5
Could use basic lessons for music learners 4/5
By Kirbeh n Prince Fluff
I'm really excited to purchase the full Medly House Music Pack soon when I can, but it'd be even better if there were a purchasable lesson book or something. To help assist newcomers of music.
Otherwise this app is really great and I give it 4 stars.
Update: I notice there is a music note problem; a limited selection in notes that leads to an iffy offbeat tune. There aren't enough music notes to create enough desirable results without a sour note oftentimes. There needs to be a purchasable note pack for that.
Awesome but i have a suggestion 5/5
Now this might sound like a good or bad idea depending who you are but i suggest allowing f2ps have custom sounds, but i would guess it would have a limit like, 2-3 custom sounds per song or ad watch or something
More suggestions 5/5
By Electric Beast
I feel like we should have some more dubstep instruments. I also think that we need to have a trap bass, maybe called the "Boom" bass.
Amazing app with amazing developer team! 5/5
Thank you guys for helping out with my issue.
perfect so far 4/5
By Tré Ruth
I've never made a beat in my life so all this is new to me and I'm not that good at it, but from what I see here, there's an overwhelming amount of instruments and sounds to choose from, although maybe not in comparison to one of the ones I can find on a computer
Another review by me 5/5
By Girl with the goods
I really like this app it takes a little while to get use to it but its fantastic but..... you should get rid of all of these albums TO MANY!! ALBUMS!!!
Love it 5/5
By Delta fox 25
Best app ever it's all I do when I'm bored literally perfect
Grate app 4/5
By Melon Moment
I made a review about my instruments getting deleted and I got my answer thx devs. And I think there needs some new features such as being able to change the measures from a 4/4 to 3/4 then there needs to be were you can change tempos with out having to open a new song and also there should be a vibraphone in the classic pack.
Amazing, but a pain 4/5
By Spurd Fan
It's really fun to you with, but making a good song on it is WAY hard.
A Step Foward in my Musical Career 5/5
I'm an aspiring musician, but had never really gotten a chance to compose anything beyond piano, violin, viola, and cello. The fact that Medly provides so many instruments was exciting for me. Now, I can listen to, not only the classic instruments, but synths, basses, and drums. I really like the wide range of music that you can create, and the sound cloud features because it allows you to hear what other people have created. It really shows you that there are no limits to music. You just need to be creative to bend the rules.
Tiny bug 4/5
I love this app but there's a bit of a bug where I would lose a section of my song and it's annoying to put it back
I love this app 5/5
By Christian hawk43
I have made 4 songs already 3 of them are on SoundCloud @chawkvlogs. But I would love it if the developers could allow you to download and remix other people's songs. It would give the app so much diversity... other than that this app is the best music making app on the App Store
This is the best app five⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Great except for bugs 4/5
By Hydran the Terrible
Love it, love how easy it is to use and I'm able to make some things in my head come to life. Problem is with recent updates, it still glitches out. Lost an entire fragment of a song because of its crashing :^(
But otherwise, it's a great music making app and the best out there.
By Drippy stikbot
Love it. It's easy and fun. I mostly spam click and make cool songs
By Da ultimate
I love this app! I still haven't bought all the packs but I still get to make good music! One thing... Please add a singing option. This is by far the best free music making app I've ever seen! This app is good for if you want to actually MAKE the music instead of the app doing it for you! Good job! Keep up the good work!👍👍👍
I love it! 5/5
Me and my friends use this app all the time for music making! This is great app!
Very Nice 5/5
I really liked this app. I can make anything I want. I do wish that you could have real instruments, but it is still very nice.
Love it 5/5
There are so many Instruments and tones you can get lost forever in making different tunes. Very easy and straightforward
Good variety, bad quality 3/5
By Danny Velez
There is alot of good instruments in this but they sound very fake and low quality. Especially the chior.
Great app 5/5
I was trying to find a good app for making music on mobile, and I don't really have anything to say besides this is that great app.
Could use a few things 4/5
By Neko Box .-.
This app is wonderful; however I feel like there are a few things that need to be added.
1) Key Signature - It's a bit annoying that I'm only allowed to work in 4/4 time. I really wish I could use 3/4
2) Dynamics - Okay, so I can adjust the volume of the track, or change the volume of the notes. Sadly, I only have three options and I wish I had options such as: Piano, Mezopiano, Mezoforte, Forte, ETC.
3) Tempo change - Sometimes I like to spice things up and change the tempo for my songs at some point, can you please add it?
I'm sorry if I come off as needy, the app altogether is amazing.
This app is awesome... once you buy the expansion. 5/5
I bought the band pack witch unlocks all the packs for 10$ (technically 9.99, but who cares?) once I unlocked that, it basically turned into a different app! It changed from a beginner app with a few sounds, to an powerful app that can be used to make real songs! So if you're willing to pay ten bucks then I say go for it. But if you simply cannot pay that much money for an app, don't bother. It's not worth it. I personally think it should be WAY less expensive, but I don't really care
Anymore because I already bought the expansion. My advice: it's worth it if you buy it, but if you don't want to don't bother even installing it, the free version isn't worth it.
I don't actually know anymore 4/5
I've pretty much stopped using this app on my iPad now, due to the new update which screwed up my favorite instruments. The only version which I haven't updated is my phone so now I can only use that one. That means that I spent around $10.00 on the band pack, only to have it become completely useless soon after.
When I go to the Tutorial it won't let me go pass the copy and paste part.
It's Great But . . . 3/5
It's a phenomenal app for anyone who likes to compose, but for some reason sections of my music are disappearing when I haven't touched the section since it's composition. If this could be fixed or prevented, it would be close to perfect.
I used to be in an orchestra. Now I'm not. I miss my bass. I miss playing everyday. This app helps me keep in touch with music—I can still express what I need to express. I've bought all the instrument packs on here, and it was, personally, worth it. I guess you could say I use it as a sort of therapy. So yeah. Thanks.
Love It. It's Amazing. 5/5
I've been using this since it's release and I gotta say. It's literally my daily use for making music! Although I have one question. Could you add the church organ? I'm trying to make music and I wanted to see if you can add it. Other than that, Great App!!👍👍
Medly is the best 5/5
I have been waiting for a reasonably priced music app, and here it is! There are in app purchases and all that, but it's an awesome program.
The BEST 5/5
I literally found my new talent (kinda because im not using actual instruments) but its still fun! I made all these good songs with good beats! I love this game so much!
Love It But... 4/5
I love this app. It features diverse instruments, stemming from different genres of music. It also carries abilities to decrease volume and play with the echoes and sounds of each instrument.
Here are some suggestions that I hope you consider to make the app better:
-An oboe and a trumpet
-3/4, 6/8 beat per measure
-A feature where you can change the tempo while the music is playing
-Allow a forum where you can share your creations with other people in the app
-Allow option to send entire midi to Youtube by iPhone as well as with iPad
Great music app! Suggestions Below 5/5
Hi! I think it's really great that you read all reviews. I was hoping that you could listen to my newest song that I made using this app. If you don't want to because you don't like advertising, I totally understand. I really like this app and will not be switching to a software like FL Studios or Ableton for a while. I have some suggestions though.
1. Please add a Nightcore option. I want to be able to make my songs Nightcore. I know there is an option that lets you put how many beats per minute and what key it's in but it still doesn't sound right. Please take this into consideration.
2. Adding more instruments would be wonderful! I have already bought them all (the $10 for all pack) and I really like them but I end up only using like 5 of them which is kind of disappointing. I would really like more instruments like the "butterfly" one (I think it's called Flutter or something. It's used in the sample called Cartel). And more like the House and Electronic and EDM drums. I use the EDM one a lot and would really think it would be a good improvement to add another instrument similar to it. I would also recommend adding an instrument that's more of a bass. There aren't many basses or instruments that you would hear in a dubstep song. Most instruments sound more like Electronic, Dance, House, etc but no Dubstep like instruments for the most part.
3. I hope that you add more sample songs. I really like Cartel and Beginnings. Cartel has a very unique feel and Beginnings is really catchy and nice to listen to.
4. My last recommendation is that users should be able to change the color of the notes instead of just having them all always the same. Like how the first instrument is always blue and the last is always purple. I have started making artwork using this app but it's kind of inconvenient that it's always a rainbow-like color pattern. This is the least important one but it's still something to think about if you ever feel like fixing some minor bugs in the app and wanted to do more for the update than just the minor bugs.
Thanks so much for reading all this (if you do of course). Sorry that it's so long.
Alex (Btw I'm 12 y/o hopefully this doesn't change your opinion of me)
Best app ever! 5/5
I really like music. Give me more instruments and more packs. Let everyone get a Musician Pack. Harpsichord, Classic Viola, Short Viola, Plucked Viola, Musician Kit, String Kit, Sectioned Viola, Plucked Bass, Guitar Bass, Classic Recorder, Short Recorder, Solo Recorder, and Muted Recorder are the best instruments.
Best Ever! 5/5
By MLG Z
This is a great app! I have only one request. We NEED a harpsichord so bad in here! That would be the icing on the cake. I hope you read this review!

More instruments (Free Instruments) 2/5
We need more free instruments. Better experience!
Love the app 5/5
I love the app. 10/10, easy to use and a large variety of instruments. I just wish there were more coeloms to put in more instruments so I can make my songs more..... detailed.
This Is And Still Might Be My Favorite App To Make Music In But When I Play A Song It Makes This Strange Noise That Sounds Like Crumpled Paper But The Actual Song Is Playing Quietly In The Background, Please Help!
