Great app 5/5
This is great, though I am just a beginner and the stuff is sort of hard for me, but I love it I love making music.
It’s okay but something is wrong 4/5
This app is great! But, would you mind if you can import music in for free?
app is very good and id give it a five although almost everything requires a membership
Just amazing. 5/5
I can’t even explain how good it is. 3 words. Get. It. Now.
Pay to play 1/5
By Sheriff Jackson
You have to pay to play loops
Something is wrong. Every time I download the demo of that new song called “real” and try to play it, it crashes. Also, please make it where I don’t have to subscribe to get instruments. This is just getting ridiculous.
this app thingamajig is da bomb digidy. But you really gotta do it to em by not having them dank lit dab fam sounds my guy. BRUH. I’m finna tryina get them accordion and banjo and harmonica and harpsichord and Organ sounds my homeslice breadslice dawg.
Legitimately though, I would actually really appreciate it if you would add those sounds.
You should also add the ability to record your own sounds and use them as an instrument instead of just adding audio to the song.
Great app! I use it all the time but PLEASE add those instruments!
Hehe haha boi
More instruments 5/5
The App Is Awesome, But it needs more instruments. Like a
A chorused Electric Piano,
And an Oboe. Please, The new pack can be Called” Other Instruments. Thank You.
PLEASE READ 5/5
By Zachary Austin
Ever since the ChillStep update I have had trouble with making songs that use instruments that are related to ChillStep. When I open the songs that use some of the instruments and try to play it, it eventually will stop while it’s still playing and the app crashes and it’s happened every time. I don’t want to delete the app and reinstall it because I would lose everything I’m working on so if you could try to see if there’s anything you could do that would be awesome. Other than that I really love this app!!
Love it 5/5
By Espn watcherak
This review was written when the dancehall pack was most recent. Love the bonus stuff! Spill it, Medly. What’s the new pack TOMMOROW?
Update in March 2019:
Hip hop pack and future bounce pack are growing on me. Can’t wait for the pack in April! I love this app so much, even I’m planning on making a pack and sending the sounds to you!
Oh, and Naruto318, you can do “crescendos and diminuendos” with volume automation.
Updates in April 2019:
What instrument is the chords for the demo of “Grind” lead?
Update in may 2019:
My mother will ABSOLUTLEY LOVE R&B pack!
Please Read 5/5
Hey Medlylabs! I just want to say that this app is amazing and I pretty much use it everyday. For the price, the amount of content you have is fantastic and I couldn't ask for more. There's just a few questions I have about some instruments.
Firstly, the guitars. The guitars in the rock pack are pretty cool, but they seem to only last as long as a single pluck. Like, you can't extend the sound for more than one beat or so. Why is that? It used to be different some years ago but you guys changed it before I could buy it. I'd really love to use the guitar instruments (because a lot of the songs I cover are pop rock and need guitars) but I can't use them the way they are now. Is there any way you can change them or make a new pack?
Secondly, the violin, cello, and bass instruments lag by half a beat. Could you remove the lag? It’s sort of irritating because it doesn’t flow.
Thank for reading this!
To clarify, when one purchases the monthly or yearly subscription is every pack unlocked? Or does it require a payment of $5 to unlock every pack.
I like it but there are a few small problems 4/5
This app is great for anybody looking to get into making music. I got it as a way to write down and save riffs I wrote on my guitar, so I bought the rock pack to see what the electric guitars sounded like and I’m kinda disappointed. They’re all simulated rather than sampled, unlike the acoustic guitar sounds. Everything else sounds great, though.
Sorry to bother I but I like this app but why do we have to pay to use loops I don’t think really like that many people may not like it too sir you created a great app but the only thing that you should only change is being able to get the loops for free to create some great songs many people would like and download this app it’s perfect just change it to the loops being free take that being a member thing there’s also people that don’t have credit cards or money like me but with this app I can make money I can create many great projects for my Tucson rappers please bro just do that one thing for 7 billion people all around the world think how many people with download this if you do if free just like the app music maker jam or garage band their competition if you just take off the member request many rappers and singers or producers will keep installing it that benifits you because you created something very useful why take money for it if it can be useful so your next invention will be liked because of the first application made was so good know people trust your great creations that benifits you well
Best app for music but one thing 5/5
I love this app. It’s simple, and I’ve made good music. But one thing. Why can’t I save the file to my phone as an mp3 file? There are a couple sites out there for music that require mp3 and I can’t upload to them. Maybe if that could be an option soon? Still a really good app and sounds great even without buying anything!
This is by far the best free mobile DAW/Music Maker. This helps me put down my ideas for FL Studio while I’m on the road. A nice addition would be synth where I can create my own sounds. I honestly think Medly could be a real DAW with added features.
Still my favorite 5/5
Been using this app since whatever version was around for ios8 and it keeps getting better. Compared to some other music apps it doesn't take up much memory, even with 500+ songs. It's my absolute favorite app to quickly capture ideas.
I would like to be able to change the time signature or change the tempo and key of individual loops though. I also would like to be able to purchase packs separately for keeps like they were previously available.
Good interface, one annoying bug 4/5
I just got medley, and I was able to make a decent song pretty quickly. There’s one really annoying thing, though. I tried to make a new album. I changed the name and then wanted the change the artwork, though the presets looked really nice. I had my own custom album art saved in my photos, and I had let it access those same photos, but it wouldn’t let me change the artwork to anything besides the presets. I even tried restarting my iPad and it still didn’t work. If this is something where you have to get a membership to change the artwork, that really should’ve been made clear.
5 stars! 5/5
I first got medly because a friend recommended it to me. I used use garage band, but this sounds so much better! The best part is that the membership is really cheap! If there was 10 stars, I’d give medly all 10.
Hey developers... 4/5
Could you (developers) possibly add a feature to where you could convert audio files to MIDI and use it for songs? If not I understand, but if yes than awesome!
I would really like to mix that and some of your instruments you post every month or so.
I just really wanna make my own version of Megalovania.
Perfect but.. 5/5
By cringe con 2020
When I Went To Starter Templets The Templet Turned All Black?!? I Clicked It Again I Tried ReeButing Plz Tell Me What’s Going. Also Perfect For Beginners! :D
Good beat maker 4/5
It’s a good app but I don’t wanna pay for instruments l like the broken one but I just don’t wanna pay for that
Free packs 5/5
Could you make more free packs that don’t sound like basic EDM?
This app is Amazing! Not only can I make music, but I can also import it into my animation software and make animations with music! Many thanks to all of the developers! I only wish that I had the many other musical instruments to further improve my music though .😢
By another random dood
My only complaint is that I am a hs student so I don’t really have the money to pay for subscriptions (consistently)
I personally would like a few purchaseable packs but I’m happy to just keep getting updates
Heck yea 5/5
By Crystalline Circus
I got this app so I can make vocaloid songs It works really well and the sound quality is really good
Nice app but some important things hard to use. 4/5
Its pretty cool app in general. Allows to do many of cool things. But in some reason it has no undo/redo function.
The best app for aspiring (and professional) musicians 5/5
I have used numerous apps to achieve what I needed - make beautiful music with little (read none) knowledge of music theory. Medly is the only app that offers the intuitiveness, as well as the breadth of features to permit anyone to make amazing music. Try it, you will be blown away!
Keep up the great work, guys!
THE. BEST. MUSIC. MAKING. APP. 5/5
By Prof. McYeet
Thanks for making this app. It’s better than the rest. It can always be improved, but it’s already just better than the rest, hands down. I’ve been using Medly for a while now, and I love it. Keep up the great work!
Now, for some suggestions. 😂
I would LOVE to have a Glitch Hop pack added soon! It’s my favorite kind of music, and I would really enjoy having a pack solely dedicated to that subgenre of electronic music. Maybe add some Voxes to that pack, too, as Glitch Hop uses Vox a lot. Also, a feature I would love to see (and that I’ve wanted for a long time now) is a Tempo Change option. It really would be cool to change speed during a song, and I think many people would agree!
Anyway, that’s all from me. Thank you for your time and for making (and continuing to develop) an amazing app!
Next month 5/5
By best intros
Let us be able to purchase sets 5/5
This would be good for people that want to specialize in certain sounds. I was thinking maybe each sound should cost 2.99 to 4.99.
I love this app a lot, but there is an issue. I have tried and tried, but I simply can’t cancel my subscription, no matter how hard I try. Personally, I think that when you delete the app, the subscription should be cancelled. Please try to fix it.
Once I got this that day I couldn’t stop. 5/5
By some guy who likes your app
Ever since I got this in 2015 (4 years I’ve had this app!) I couldn’t stop using it and I’m still using it today. I sometimes get bored on what instruments I could use. But since I wanted to make a review on this masterpiece of a music maker I wanted to ask a small request....
Is it possible if you can make a horror kind of instrument pack? I have been into soundtracks for horror games and always wanted to compose my own for a big animation I plan on working on. If you can do that it would be awesome!😁👍 I absolutely love this app so much and it’s new stuff. My most favorite one is the arcade!👍👍👍
Less Complaints, Request 4/5
Hello. I am a customer who previously wrote a comment rudely complaining about certain things such as subscriptions and how the new update messed with the audio. I am here to apologize.
First of all, I complained that the subscription was a cash grab that was unfair to those who actually wanted it due to how expensive it was compared to the original format of either buying each pack separately for a couple dollars or buying every pack together for $10.00. At the time I was thinking “Y’all just want money so y’all can have it.” However, your response to some reviews stated this, and I quote: “We have a small team,” as well as “it is the only way we can continue to afford to bring you new content to make your experience better.” I was inconsiderate. Of course, it’s a cash grab, in a way. However, a cash grab isn’t a bad thing. With a steady inflow of money you can continue to give your following what they want: more instruments. And that means more satisfied customers. Considering the team’s working hard to release a new set of instruments each month, $34.00 a year is actually pretty generous. I could buy a lot less for a lot more (directly contradicting my original review, where I said I could buy a lot more for a lot less). While I’m not a subscriber yet, I am considering sticking with the yearly subscription, if only to help out the team behind this brilliant app.
Now on to the effect the update had on certain pieces of music I made: while I haven’t been able to fix every affected track’s dynamics and sound, I have been able to fix most, and the end product from those readjustments amounted to more than it did before the update. In short, the pieces of music I have managed to fix sound better now than they did before the update. And while I haven’t fixed every piece of music (as stated before), it’s only a matter of time, and I believe that, once I finish readjusting such pieces, they’ll sound better as well.
This app is brilliant (again, stated above). I give it 4/5, though, for one reason: not everyone prefers to make modernized music over classic or rock-styled music. The thing that will push me over the edge into the yearly subscription is whether or not I see more medieval instruments involved. The current Medieval/Orchestral/Cultural instruments are limited, if a bit underwhelming. Add instruments for certain cultures, such as instruments from old/oriental Chinese/Japanese/Asian culture. More medieval instruments. Orchestral tools to create wondrous symphonies worthy of the gods. Now that alone would make the $34 worth it for me. And I’d get several other instruments alongside it. While I strive to make enthralling medieval folksong with this app, I never said I didn’t like to make modern music. And with that, I take my pardon. Keep up the good work!
Stop the medley members 3/5
By STUDIO URCHIN!!
This app is great. I use it all the time. However, I think it’s stupid that you keep adding the awesome, height quality packs but don’t let people use them unless they’re a medley member. At least add one more pack that’s as good as these. Other than that though, it’s great
I wish you could buy packs separate rather than buy a subscription 4/5
This app is really great for casually making music, but there’s one thing I don’t like about it. I only want the Arcade pack, but I don’t want to buy a subscription, because I would only use that one pack. It ultimately seems like a waste of my money, instead of purchasing 1 pack to keep instead of purchasing all the packs to only use one.
Good meddlers 5/5
I used medley by tbtjdow now use do stdudoop
Kicked out 3/5
By If I was you I wanna be me too
When I enter the app it’s was kicking me out now fix your damm mistakes NOW!!!!!
Great! But I have some suggestions 5/5
By Mama ABF
This app is great! But for the next instrument pack, could you add a fantasy themed one? Or at least something with an accordion please! I’ve always loved that instrument and have been wanting to use it for a while :)
I am making a career out of this! ʕ•̫͡• 5/5

No more subscription :( 4/5
By Loid Hylian
I liked buying packs I wanted but, I don't wanna subscribe to all your instruments. Bring back individual packs?
Great until membership 1/5
Medly is the perfect daw for learning music production, this is because of the simplicity of all of the instruments And the creativity the app requires. I loved it until one day when I logged on and wanted to spend money for a new pack. It was the future bass pack and it looked amazing then I was met with an unpleasant surprise, medly membership. I might delete the app but even worse for you guys you just lost money and everyone who sees this, RESIST THE GREED if it is attached to the membership DO NOT BUY IT
Now medly I have no issues with a membership service if you allow separate purchases as well but it is wrong to lock it all down. Thank you for listening to my ted talk.
It April and the dubstep pack in 16th month 4/5
Medly best music maker 5/5
I downloaded this app a while ago and I love it, one of my songs on SoundCloud has almost a hundred views, I never thought I was going to be good at making music but I am pretty good, but I didn’t know this until now, I’m trying to be a member and get better instruments and I have a visa gift card and there is 15 dollars left on it and as I was trying to make the monthly payment it wouldn’t accept my card, I know that I didn’t use it when I had 15 dollars left and it just won’t let me use the money to become a member, but that’s the only negative thing I have to say about the app, I really recommend getting the app
New update 1/5
So I bought the master class a while back, and with the new update that came out they make you pay for the membership even thought I bought the other classes!
Best DAW for beginners 5/5
With Medly, I discovered how much I loved music production. Medly’s intuitive and simple design helped me familiares myself with beat making and sound design. Although I use more costly DAW’s on the computer now, I still often go back to Medly because of how smooth and enjoyable it is to use this app.
Would rate 10/5 stars if I could
Can’t even operate this app I tried using it and it’s to confusing for me need something easier
Best game EVVVER 5/5
I loooove this! I showed my sister and she loves it! Thank you devs of Medly =)
