Medly - Music Maker

Best of App Store 2016: iPad App of the Year & iPhone App of the Year Runner-Up †

Medly takes a new approach to the way music is made, letting both seasoned and new musicians make epic music. Just pick your instruments and start drawing notes.

Medly breaks up your song into Sections that you can easily pick up, move, delete, copy, and link together to make loops. Then arrange your Sections, using up to 8 instrument tracks, to make epic music.

Start off with 16 free instruments, and unlock 112 more across a variety of genres in the Medly store.

Quickly upload your song to SoundCloud, or share it as a video*, audio, MIDI, or Medly file. You can also connect Medly to other apps using Audiobus, Inter-App Audio or play in time using Ableton Link.

Change the volume of each track and apply effects and filters to make to customize your sounds. You can also add fades and automate volume and effects over time.*

Use Medly on your iPhone, iPad, and iPad Pro. Medly supports all screen orientations and sizes, including Split View and Slide Over.

Open, play and control Medly songs right from your wrist. Perfect for running in the background and using Inter-App Audio or Audiobus.

Use 3D Touch to quickly create and open a song from your iPhone home screen, or Peek & Pop your Albums and Songs. You can also press harder when drawing notes to make them louder.

No need to beg

Great but...  No need to beg  4 star

I love making songs on this, but... why is there not just a normal piano!?

This has a WHAT?!  Jeremy_12 4  5 star

Whoa! You guys put an OCARINA in here! Awesome! I'm looking forward to purchasing the Band Pack so I can get that plus a harp, xylophone and many other instruments to make my own music with! Thanks for brightening my day with the ocarina! I actually have a real one, too!

Here's an inside tip...  Maples Ex  5 star

The samples available in this app are bit for bit the same samples available in Music Studio. Only in Music Studio the instrument selection is much much greater... endless, really. Spend the money for Music Studio. If you want quality and function on the fly, for simplicity, and time's sake though, yeah, get this app. I consider this app the real Music Studio Lite. The samples are unbeleivable-

Amazing... but small  Electric Beast  4 star

I really like Medly. It shouldn't have limited instruments, though. If you could use as many instruments as you wanted in a song, you could make a cool dubstep song. Maybe that could be an update idea. Also, maybe a dubstep pack for better dubstep songs? Maybe with an FX drum with different dubstep vocals, growl sounds and other stuff like that, because I am a dubstep artist. :) Plus, I think that the Rock Pack should have more guitars that are probably better for Metal songs. Please try to do these things. Thank you :)


Amazing  LegendaryBeatMaker  5 star

There are no's just plain out awesome. Try it yourself and see.

Grate app  Melon Moment  4 star

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 changing the measures from a 4/4 to 3/4 then there needs to be were you can change tempos with ought having to crate a new song.


Great app, some suggestions -  Dewnite  4 star

All around great app! I love making music here but I'm gonna have to switch programs because I need some features this app does not have! If there were functions to create your own sounds, leads or synths I might switch back, but I am limited to just a few sounds, also, could you consider a pc version? That would make me more interested.


LITTT  JacPac132  5 star

This app is LIT for anyone who wants to make original music without using the complicated features of GarageBand, 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!!!


Gotta love it  WoodsmanMasc  5 star

I can finally make the tracks I want. Thanks medly

Love this app, but please help!  Kirbeh n Prince Fluff  4 star

Medly is helping me to learn music, and is fun and easy to use. However, I have this glitch where I can no longer click into the sheets or edit the tunes. Please help fix this issue.

Josh lovell

Great app  Josh lovell  5 star

As someone who has no background in music at all apart from the occasional tap around on the drums I find this app really easy to use and very addicting. So fun in fact, I'm learning more about reading music and musical composition. Definitely recommend.


Good but...  H20bucket  4 star

This app is really amazing and all but there's a problem, sometime's when making a melody or a song, the note scale would be either to low or to high which I hate when that happens. Also the max bars you can go is 4 bars, I wish you can change it too 5 but if your doing the music scale stuff with 4 bars thing, then I understand. Other than that it's really amazing and I recommend this app


Holy crap...  Ftwdragonslayer  5 star

I've been blown away by how good this is. a lot better than the stuff that's 20$. I like the deal of all packs for 10$ because all the packs are 3$.


Great app but...  Luckster626  4 star

I think you should have a tutorial because I'm not sure how everything functions yet also can we be able to copy boards over so we don't have to make them again and again and again but other than that I r8 gr8 m8 8/8


Studio on my hand  ALVIN tot  5 star

I love this application over other downloadable apps for composing beats.

The nickiest name of them all

Only one problem  The nickiest name of them all  5 star

So far this app has been amazing. The only problem is that it doesn't have very many loops/packs. That's really my only complaint about it.


Really good!  Cfbp20  5 star

Medly has some really really good features and it is so easy to use! I have dreamed of creating music since I heard my first musical note!


The best  Zerbii  5 star

This app is, by far, the best music making app on the App Store.


Back to Auxy  zhiguli8  2 star

Thought I'd try this out and didn't spend enough time with it before I purchased extra sounds. I don't like the fact that you are limited to a pentatonic scale (why have a jazz soundbank?). You can switch to chromatic, but Auxy has this app beaten for composing in key (major, minor & harmonic minor). Many of the sounds are unusable or just cheesy; most of the guitar sounds are like this. Haven't tried this yet, but I don't believe the drums conform to the GM standard so exporting midi would require some extra work. In general I like the app, but nit enough to keep it on my phone.


Awesome, but I have a problem...  kratos2015  4 star

I have made a lot of songs already, and my friends and family love them. But... I don't think it's fair that you have to have later generations to have the filter feature. I make my music on an iPad Mini 1, and I really want to make music with the filter. I just don't understand why you can't implement it in the app for ALL generations. It just doesn't make sense to me.
