    Is it possible to get any 808 drums or any thing in the app itself without hooking up to midi? I literally do everything on my phone or iPad, but love the app‼️⛽️🔥

    This app keeps getting better. All functions become second nature with time. Music Studio is great for all stages of your musical career.

  • The Best Music app in the App Store

    By Viola023
    This app has all the elements needed to make my music! Unlike any other app that I can find!
  • Yuck!

    By Square up is way better
    I bought this based on the reviews. All of the sounds are reminiscent of an 80's Casio keyboard. NOT worth the money.
  • One of favorite tools for song writing

  • My Favorite Music App

    By haveben
    I have bought a number of music apps and this one is my favorite by far. Reminds me of The old Cakewalk program I used to use. Y'all have this program pretty developed. You should consider moving towards hardware like holding samples or Bluetooth to take samples and include midi interfaces. I know I cannot have too many midi connectors. Love this program.
  • Great app!

    Music Studio allows me to mix and match musical rips, and allows me to explore different rhythms and melodies. The more I use this app, the more I find I can do with it. This is a truly class app!

  • Amazing Music App!

    By AdamDoesAnimations
    I have been using this for a year now and it's really lived up to my expectations. I love how high quality the instruments sound. However, I would love to see more electronic instruments along with band and classical. Maybe a woodblock would be nice for the drum section. Also more bells is one the things I really want. It would be amazing if you added more instruments.
