  • Beats all other DAWs for simplicity of use! and cost

    By brainfroehling
    Not sure how many complicated DAWs I've bought and tried. But this one is simple, useful and when needed can be very detailed when dynamics are needed. You can't go wrong.
  • Perfection for my needs

    By Verb8em
    I’ve used this app since iPhone 4 came out and it has never disappointed me. I have purchased every addon instrument available so far and absolutely love working in this app. It’s easy to use and hard to master so the the advanced user will have just as much fun as the novice that picks it up. Strange thing I noticed the other day, I also use FL Studio Mobile 3 and it would appear that their previous iteration FLSM 2 was almost an exact clone as far as interface goes... was this app the model that t was made after because o believe Music Studio 2 was out before FLS but idk. Just saw some old screengrabs and was like, what!?!! It looks like Music Studio!?! Anyway keep up the awesome work! Keep adding instruments and drum kits! Is there any plan to add on Vocal Processing/Pitch correction in-app? Or adding an actual synth that can be programmed in app? Just curious I am fine with IAA/Audiobus’n into Music Studio anyway! Great app!!!
  • Excellent. No Bluetooth lag.

    By Mindtopaper
    This is the ONLY music app I have tried that does not have latency issues when using Bluetooth headphones/earbuds and the Bluetooth Korg MicroKEY Air.
  • Best of the best!!

  • App.

    By Four socks
    I think it is not user friendly in that my wife and I downloaded it. We tried to play the piano but as soon as you hit any note if echos five or six times. There should be an easy way to get the keyboard to sound like a regular piano. We have looked at effects and tried numerous things but the piano notes still echo several times after each stroke. Any reason why this is so difficult to figure out?
  • A few suggestions

    By Acat67
    I love this app and have been using it for years, but have a few suggestions that could make it even better. 1. A simple “clear trash” button for the new trash folder is desperately needed. 2. An auto tune feature for audio tracks. 3. A way of making sustained notes crescendo and decrescendo. 4. The ability to change tempo within a song. Thanks and keep up the great work!
  • Disappointing

    By Peterguzinya
    Can’t import existing MIDI files! This is just my initial attempt to do anything! Not worth the cost. Can I get my money back? I’d put no stars, but it would not let me! Latest, can’t edit events!
  • More instruments coming up!

    By shutupsfe
    Some more instruments needs update! But I like this? Yes!
  • I want to sign with the creators of this amazing app

    PLEASE DONT EVER CHANGE THE STYLE OF STUDIO ITS AMAZING, IT’S PERFECT!!! I am a producer/beatmaker/musician to 13+ instruments including guitar, drums, sitar, banjo, trumpet etc and I started playing instruments when i was 6 and started making beats when i was 11 with this app i bought + FLSM on my old ipod touch that i saved up from raking leaves/mowing lawns and now i am 19 and i still use this app to this day to make my music, FL Studio use to have an awesome version FL Studio Mobile 2.5.4 that i still use on my old device but I contacted them and they wont make anymore of that version so i cant get it on any other device :( Terrible mistake they made going to FL Studio Mobile 3, it’s very hard to use and not a straight up studio, it looks cool but nothing can be found easily/traditionally so I deleted it, i like and personally use a traditional style studio/template and I absolutely LOVE this app because it has that and it has stayed the same and i have mastered it as much as possible and have made beats for over 10+ artists n counting. I have made 1000’s of beats so far n counting (not much storage left LOL) and made them all with kits ive bought/edited on my computer and transfered them via email to this app Music Studio (full version) and made all of my own tracks and i love this app it works awesome and I personally hope they never change this style or anything, if you do any updates it would be cool if they could make a mix and master section for after you’ve made the beat into a WAV or M4A file then you could load it into mix and master and fine tune section for the song for full production or make a pop down menu with premixed presets and choose a mix and master EQ/sound and apply it to you’re track, this app is amazing and i thank you for not changing it and id love to meet and talk with the creators of this app about potentially working together on something or creating apps etc, google me or youtube me to hear what i make with this studio, search JAME$ BONGZ or BONGZ ON THE BEAT
