Best DAW on IOS for the price  Kkatalack  5 star

The midi export/import functionality is top notch. The only complaint I have is the wireless server option. I feel like that is not needed and we should be able to toggle it off. I am normally not one to produce a full track on my phone, but if I need to this is a wonderful app for on the fly projects. It's also universal. On the iPad it stands up to apps like Cubasis in terms of functionality. It does not have the professional tools like Cubasis. The built in effects are decent and you have the option of using third party apps. It is it a fraction of the price compared to the competition. Much better than using GarageBand. One thing it is missing is built in synthesizers, but it tries its best with decent sounds.


Wow wow wow  JILWTW2328  5 star

Thank you for all of the features. The vocals sound awesome on this thing. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK AND NEVER QUIT UPGRADING AND ADDING AND CREATING!!! Studio time can be expensive and so can musicians....I applaud the maker of this app.... Job well done. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻


Music Studio is a very capable DAW  entertainer510  4 star

I have to say I'm impressed with this app! It has a lot of useful features such as built in midi instruments (and a lot to choose from too) as well as audio tracks to record from a microphone or line in. I really like the Inter App Audio support so you can record audio from other music apps and virtual instruments you may have installed on your device. Here's why I couldn't give it five stars: when I record audio tracks, it will record the wave, but it won't play the sound when I play back my recordings. I can't get the audio tracks to "play" even though the waveform is there. Is it something I'm doing wrong? Or is it a glitch that needs to be updated? I can't figure it out and it's driving me crazy because I really do like this app. I just wanted to bring this problem to someone's attention just in case they're having the same problem.

Add 808 bassdrum  IM DAVE BTW  5 star

The only thing missing from this app is the 808 bassdrum and if this app had it, it would be flawless. Please add the 808 to this app asap!!


Amazing App  Nutcracker=3  5 star

It's like a mobile version of Pro Tools. You can import drum kits, sample hip hop beats, equalize and edit sound, it's a really thorough experience.

Larry Seyer

Amazing!  Larry Seyer  5 star

The idea that I can compose, sequence, record, edit, and mix on my iPhone is still amazing to me. This is not a toy. It is a full featured music production studio that fits in your pocket. Just think about that for a second. IT IS A FULL FEATURED MUSIC PRODUCTION STUDIO THAT FITS IN YOUR POCKET!!! Anyone who is not amazed at the features and quality contained within this app simply doesn't understand what they have in their hands. It's phenomenal! Love it! You asked for suggestions? Ok. Here goes... Intuitive music composition with predicative styles and palettes. But even if that never comes to pass, get this app. You won't be disappointed.


Niiiice  Meee141227  5 star

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‼️⛽️🔥


A Classic  Lorenzo:0  5 star

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

Modulation wheel doesn't work.  Teclasjr2093  5 star

This is an amazing app. I have added it to my Live rig. Only one problem the modulation wheel stopped working. Please put out an update to fix this.


This is the best quality sounds  Thiensun88  5 star

I really like the beautiful sounds this music studio offer, thank you

amazing app  mechanical meme  5 star

For such a powerful app you'd expect a lot of problems, but the only two I've ever encountered after using it for like 2 or 3 years (I just got it on this account but I bought it before on another) are rare problems where the reverb would make a very loud noise in some situations and another where the top buttons would be offset by a few millimeters. It's hard to find something so capable with so few problems.


CROSSTALK PROBLEM  WildberryMan  1 star

I have not been able to eliminate the cross talk problem even though I have followed all of the advice on the support forum. Unfortunately this makes the software useless for recording multiple tracks, or recording a track against a metronome. To bad, I had high hopes and invested a lot of time learning how to use its many features.

Brings back memories  Thimgan erchinger  5 star

This app is how I started making music back in 2011. I made so many songs on this app I'm pretty much the master of this app! I love this app cause it reminds me of 2012.. But that is one big problem. It looks exactly the same and sounds exactly the same. They really really need to update it to keep up with music now days. I work with fl studio now as a music producer making rap beats and I can say this app does not have up to date sounds with 2016 music. Really needs better and newer sounds and really needs a look update. Looks exactly the same as 4 years ago. They need more effects to and way more sounds. Once that's done I will be happy. But still love this app because it started me out in my music career.

Trouble with soundcloud  Kaserapsolo  4 star

I love this app but it won't let me upload to soundcloud every time it just crash and won't let me do it


Great Tool for on-the-go Musicians  chris22119  5 star

For the last 4-5 years this has been my go-to-app. Great for writing out ideas when away from an instrument, on the road or flying. I've started many songs using this app and was able to easily move them to logic or pro tools to finish them up.

Making music like crazy

Love this app!!!  Making music like crazy  5 star
