Medly takes a new approach to the way music is made, letting both seasoned and new musicians make epic music. Just pick your instruments, draw notes, record & sing, and drag & drop one of over 1900 loops or samples.

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 24 instrument tracks, to make epic music.

Start off with 16 free instruments and 100 loops. Unlock more across a variety of genres by becoming a Medly Member, with new sounds released every month.

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.

Mix and customize your sounds using our built-in effects and filters. Add fades and pitch bends using automation, a graph editor that lets you change an effect over time.

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

I'm sorry you feel this way - but if we made loops, or instruments or (insert request here) free, then there is no reason to become a Member. Without Member, we can't bring in funds to help build Medly, Medly's sounds, loops and songs - all these things cost an enormous amount of money and we're just a small company. To put it more bluntly: without Member - Medly wouldn't exist.

Right now - we have one of the best free offerings in the App Store and we're incredibly proud of this. As such, we have no desire to add more free content to Medly. If you'd like access to more content, you'll have to become a Member.

Great, Except...

Hey! This is an amazing app. Well designed, clean, professional. But the only thing I dislike about it is that it is expensive. Hear me out, because I am not recommending that it be free. As a hobbyist I don’t have the money to buy a membership, but having the extra samples are kind of a must if you want to make songs with variety. What if in the free version it played an ad every time you added a premium instrument to a song. It would be like renting the instrument with an ad. You wouldn’t unlock the instrument universally, only for that song. It would keep the free version restricted while allowing hobbyists to make more with the app. It would generate income from all users instead of the few that buy a Membership. It would still give plenty of incentive to buy the pro version. This is a brilliant app and I want it to keep progressing. I think it would be beneficial to both users and developer. Just an idea, Cheers!

P.S It would also be cool if deleted songs went to a temporary trash. This is a relatively standard feature in many media creation applications. (Or you could just put a couple extra messages telling people not to be idiots, like me, and delete songs they want :D)

If we put in ads, we'd get complaints that every time someone got into the groove of making music, a 30 second video ad popped up. Ads also crash apps, clutter the interface and make the whole user experience worse - yuck.

For the record, we don't make money from free users. We don't sell ads and we don't sell your data.

In regards to cost - if you look elsewhere, what you'll find is we're one of the lowest priced options, because we priced Medly Member to be affordable to all. Look at other subscriptions - some charge more $7/week!, while we charge $5/month or under $3/mo if you pay for a year upfront. What you're paying for is the full experience of Medly's tools and a large sound library that's only getting bigger.

Solid app

Honestly, this is a great app. Been using it for years now. Not only can you get access to a ton of sounds including leads, plucks, synths, basses, drums, etc. but the app is on your phone, meaning you can take it and work where ever you want. This gives medly a huge leg up on the competition. Most other DAWs (digital audio workstation) are limited to the computer, excluding some like FL Studio. I've tried using FL studio a few times but was always dissapointed because I was so used to the general convenience of Medly. The "tap to hear" feature is brilliant and really helps maximize efficiency. I think they should add a "tap to hear" feature on keys. Say you want to hear key D, just tap on it and the D note will play with your current instrument selected. I just have one small complaint though - when recording audio in the Record section of the audio instrument, the app tends to crash a lot. Sometimes just once, sometimes multiple times in a short time. Quite frustrating, but it could just be happening with a large project. Overall, a great app though. Totally recommend.
