    Working on a new song or riff can be exciting, and the last thing you want is to forget the tune 10 minutes later. With BandLab, you can record that 30-second solo you came up with and share it with your band, so they can get inspired and bring ideas to the next band practice.

    Sometimes, an idea will come to you while you're on the road, 500 miles away from your studio. You can still record a demo on the go as this app offers all the basic features you may need. It even has a social media component, allowing you to share your work with other enthusiasts.

    I've been with bandlab for around 3 years now. And I haven't found a single other app that compares. Bandlab stands alone without exaggeration. They are constantly improving the app and fine tuning it, always adding new fun and useful features. They (developers) pay attention to our suggestions and work them in to the updates. They are on top of the feedback, even if you tend to be a bit...uncommon(???)... Idk how many people they have in their team, but they are all musicians who know their stuff and that's who responds when you have feedback. I have seen this app grow into an amazing place to create music...not just music; but professional quality, music you can be proud of, I think there's like millions of users??? Alot! And many are some pretty heavy hitters in the musical world. All over the world! Intermingling and ready to collaborate with YOU! Seriously! I've learned and grown so much more than I expected to because of this FREE app. Bandlab has become a home to me because of the devoted developers, the amazing musicians from all corners of the world, and the tools that allow me to create music that I could not do if bandlab wasn't available or cost $. Thank you bl devs... Y'all add the music to a muted world🖤

    So far, there were multiple glitches I've gotten. Like a completely different track showing for something else. The one that's been happening to my recent recordings that caused them to be forever syncing. I have tried everything, closing the app, restarting the app, restarting my phone, it doesn't work. This has been happening for about 25 days. Plz fix this, I really like this app :(
  • Pros and cons Jun 2, 2020

    By Nashler
    Update: At this point it rarely works longer than an hour. I delete and download this multiple times a day to make one song :( it happens at any point. Right when I open the app. Or when I’m about to finish. Or when I’m in the middle of recording. It will just force close or suddenly sign me out and say I can’t sign back in. (Error or this link doesn’t exist) That’s when I have to delete it. Also, When I open an existing file. It will randomly say my microphone doesn’t work or I have to choose that option. But It was fine a second ago when I recorded. I’ll push record and it’s an old recording I deleted etc. these are the problems I have. But I still use it with all these frustrations because there’s nothing else out there like this.. So there is no other app out there like this. It’s amazing. I will continue to use it even though there are a few glitches and errors that occur. Sometimes for no reason. It will force close. Then I spend a few minutes deleting the app and downloading again. That seems to be the only suggestion from the support group. It does work but a little inconvenient. Sometimes songs just disappear. I’ve had a few occasions of them showing up again. But I’ve also lost a few. I just save them to my computer now. For me, the pros outweigh the cons. Only because I’ve never found a app this simple where you can record your music and singing. Also, the community is awesome :)

    I'm going to add to change up an old review. This app continues to improve, in my opinion, and I want to stress that this app has so much potential as a professional production tool, but my main issue is that the interface/controls are not fluent or intuitive to use, and it really hampers workflow. For example, when placing midi, the user should be allowed to zoom in and out of the timeline; more shortcuts and navigation, please! The UI hampers the workflow and makes it feel tedious.

    I’ve been on the app for roughly 4 years now and I can tell you there’s nothing else like it anywhere else. It’s a online DAW, it’s a beat maker with simple interface with thousands of combinations and hundreds of sound packs. It’s a social platform for artist looking to share their work and collaborate with other musicians half way across the world and it’s absolutely free. It’s a place where any genre of artist can meet new band members, upload stems from other DAW software despite what operating system you or your band mates got in your pockets. Cross OS COLLABORATION, CROSS COUNTRY COLLABORATION, International collaboration at your fingertips. And it’s 100% free to use and you never pay anything, no card numbers for sign up. No hidden anything. Just a place to connect with other artists or just to share your work or jam out to your favorite style of music. I’m a die hard metal fan and even the multiple sub-genres of metal have a strong community here. And there a lot of talent from all over the world right here. Ive made a lot of good friends here from places I’ve never even thought of. Don’t just try it. Become part of the family and make some music. You won’t regret it.

    Seriousy incredible. Love the ui. Love the midi editing. Love the fx and being able to easily edit the presets. Love the looper. Love the sampler and libraries. LOVE the mastering capability. I cannot believe this is free. If i had any requests it would be the social aspect of the app. I wish i wasn't locked into publishing tracks into one genre. What i make falls inbetween folk and electronic and doesnt really fit into either category.
  • Bluetooth Latency and Delay Feb 13, 2022

    By Lil' Money
    Hey BandLab I can’t thank you enough for making it easy to record music like this. I use your app every time I write lyrics and was ready to make music, but something came up. The Ipad I used to make my music doesn’t work anymore so I bought a new iPad Air. Thing is I can’t connect any of my earphones or headphones to my iPad Air so I can’t really make music. My friend bought me a v8 to make my music high quality and studio like but it runs on Bluetooth. Please do everything you can to make BandLab support Bluetooth without any latency or delay and make it sound exactly how it sounds on wired earphones or headsets. I’d love to continue using your app to make music because other apps makes it complicated. And BandLab is the only app I’ll call a real studio without any equipment but I have a v8 to make my music sound better and I can’t use it on BandLab because it’s Bluetooth. Make Bluetooth work on BandLab and I’ll forever be grateful that you came into my life, if you can’t I understand and I’ll try to find something to continue making my music on wired earphones. Thank you for reading all of this, you’re the best.

    This app is starting to get better and better! Except there IS one more bug that idk how to fix... Whenever I press "save" on the song that im working on and go to create a new one, it brings me back to the song i was just on. But whenever i press "Discard" and go to create a new song, like magic it's a brand new song. Please fix this. Other than that, this is a really great music app! I highly recommend it to people that are new to making tracks.

  • Best Studio/Recording/Mixing App! May 23, 2020

    By Hdthfinc
    I NEVER write reviews for apps, let alone rate them but I am so happy with this app I just felt I needed to share.... I like to import an instrumental version of a song and then add multiple tracks of myself singing over it, harmonizing with myself, basically. I’ve tried so many apps to do this but they either don’t allow me to import my own song or they don’t allow me to edit my vocals or they charge money to use certain features. The only other app I’m aware of that could do this is GarageBand but that can be difficult to figure out and 98% of the time, it doesn’t let me import songs from my phone for some reason. I get so frustrated with it. I’ve have zero issues with BandLab and it allows you to use all editing feature for FREE. Also, there aren’t ads popping up every 5 seconds like every other free app out there. This app is a breath of fresh air and I’m so thankful I’ve found it. It does exactly what I need it to do, with no issues and all for free. To the developers: Thanks so much! Keep up the good work!

    I'm gonna keep it a bill, I was very intimedated by the thought of making my own beats for my lyrics but this app is so user friendly, I really feel like anyone could do it with enough practice. They have a tab on your saved projects to insert your lyrics. I havent looked yet but I am certain there is a way to export your saved file so you can record your vocals better. I gave 4 stars because the lay out can be a bit intimedating at first but, play around for a bit and you will get it.
  • Needs improvement Nov 17, 2020

    By 69420fegget
    Band lab lags like no other while I’m trying to record and edit. There’s a quarter of a second of delay from when I hit a string on my guitar to when I hear it in my headphones and that can really mess you up when you’re trying to be precise. You can’t adjust the click track to be one consistent click too. There’s always an accent note and I don’t need one. I just need to know I’m keeping with the beat. I keep experiencing issues with my headphones too, but I have not yet diagnosed if that’s band lab or my brand new headphones being defective. I have ALL of my volume knobs (in the software, on my computer, and my interface) all turned all the way up and every now and then the sound I get back is barely audible despite being recorded at a reasonable volume in the first place. Hell, the bar is jumping up past yellow in some parts when I hit my bass a little too hard while recording. It’s a free useful site but it’s not without its issues. I recommend it for working on your own personal projects (like I’m doing right now) but don’t sink something special into this product. You’ll want something of a better quality at that point.

    At first, this app was wonderful. And still, I think this is a great way to get started with music. Unfortunately, it has gone downhill severely after using it for 2 years. Songs I've made randomly disappear, notes shift entire octaves, there is way to much latency, and finally, it just won't save my music. The app is quickly deteriorating. The help center was helpful at first, but they seem to have given up on me. Edit: problems have gotten further out of control rendering bandlab inoperable.

    It's an awesome app to create some beats, all 5/5. I have a small problem, but it's no biggie; I try importing a (fast) sample in the tempo of 170 BPM, but then it suddenly goes to 85 BPM in the metronome after it reads the sample, and it keeps doing that every time I try again. Is there any way to prevent that? Thanks. I like making breakcore/goreshit in this app, and it's really great to use.

    This has got too be the best music making app I have ever used. Trust me I've used tons of them, from jams music maker all the way too walk band and everything between. Band lab has been nothing but great for me. I even read the bad reviews before I downloaded it where a few people said the app crashed on them or froze up or wouldn't let them save there music. I first downloaded it on a government phone and never once had any problems with the app. Thank you so much to the Dev's I just love it.

    By Young CoN_15
    So it’s a great app overall and I finally ran into an issue I made a brand new song was very proud and about to post it and I clicked save so I could go and tweak some things and make my audio more clear then only to realize the app only saved the beat and not my voice audio and my lyrics disappeared that I had written down aswell I’m overall really disappointed that out of all issues hat could have happened it was this issue I have never had issues until now I would love a reply from a developer or someone that can help me because maybe it got lost in like the apps cloud or something but I worked so hard on this song and now I have nothing but the beat no none of my vocals are there anymore, and my lyrics have been erased aswell off the app please someone write back and please fix this bug on your app at this point I’ve tried all I could to retrieve my lost vocals and lyrics so I’m trying to the developer please help me because I was really proud of this song and I hate dissapointing all my fans I have everywhere😢🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

    No Adds, or gimmicks. My opinion of this app has grown so much since I first got it. This is the ONLY app for a mobile phone other than garageband that you you can use to make professional sounding music. And I prefer this over garageband anyway. It deserves 10 stars and if you see anyone who doesn't like this app. The problem is on them, not the app. With a good phone, and pair of good headphones with a mic on them you can make VERY professional music. Blaqtalon_official rates this a 100/10.

    I'm going to add to change up an old review. This app continues to improve, in my opinion, and I want to stress that this app has so much potential as a professional production tool, but my main issue is that the interface/controls are not fluent or intuitive to use, and it really hampers workflow. For example, when placing midi, the user should be allowed to zoom in and out of the timeline; more shortcuts and navigation, please! The UI hampers the workflow and makes it feel tedious.

  • I have one problem... Dec 31, 2018

    By Allen Grayson
    BandLab is an excellent app for music making and listening. I absolutely love it. That is, until a problem occurred. I went to get into the app just yesterday and instead of going in straight to my profile and the normal screen, it had the entire intro log in screen show up as if I logged out of my account, which I never do. When I tried logging in using my information, is kept on saying that I have “incorrect credentials”. So, I tried logging in with my google account instead. I thought it would work, but then I got a pop-up saying that my email is “already linked to a different account type”. So now, I can’t log in AT ALL, or access any of my stuff, which is really frustrating. It also makes me worried that my account somehow got lost, along with all of my stuff on it. I still get notifications telling me that people liked my song, or started following me, but even when I tap on the notification banner that shows up at the top of the screen to take me to the app, NOTHING HAPPENS. If you could please help in any way or give some sort of advice as to what I should do, thank you. My music is very important to me and I don’t want it to be lost forever with my account. Thank you.
  • Amazing App! Hoping for Better Features in the Future Jan 12, 2022

    By meenayii
    I absolutely LOVE Bandlab. I have told alllll of my friends about it, and I have been on it nonstop since I figured out there was an app. (It’s a little funky on my Windows PC) Anywho, although this is a phenomenal app for bedroom artists; I am hoping to see better vocal editing features in the future. (Like pitch correcting/autotune etc) I enjoy the filters and effects they have available, but it would be nice to be able to stack filters, change the intensity of the effect without completely resetting the presets.. and separating vocals from instrumentals? Other than that it would be nice to merge layers (or just be able to add more! I’m running out of layer space and making one song with multiple projects!!) overall I would get the app. It’s easy to use, it’s fun, and it makes making music soo much easier than you could ever imagine it. Don’t let my suggestions deter you from the download! I’m hoping Bandlab will add those in the future and eventually you could they could take over GarageBand as the best iOS music editor lol. Thank you BandLab for your hard work and dedication to bringing music to everyday people like me

    I don’t usually write reviews for apps AT ALL but this app alone has made it possible to easily express a creative musical side of myself. I just got the app just under two weeks ago since writing this and I’ve already recorded 7 fully produced songs. They’re pretty basic because I’m still learning but this app has made it possible nonetheless and there’s still so many features I have yet to figure out fully. My friend recommended it to me and I’m so glad I got it. The fact that it has so many features without annoying pop up ads is incredible. I’d rate 6 stars if I could (Continued) Ok I found a problem that is insanely annoying. I’ve been trying out a new modern rap type style of music lately and Bandlab as usual has been doing great at helping me with that except for one problem. I need to use the auto pitch feature for this style of music and turning it up causes random faint popping noises to appear on the vocal tracks. I’ve tried everything and it just won’t go away. This glitch/flaw is literally the only thing I’ve encountered on this app that is holding it from the status of perfection.

    It's been a pretty good music app so far, no problems except for maybe the Bluetooth delay. Otherwise, nothing I can think of. Edit: for the past few days I haven't been able to put the sound squares perfectly on the line anymore which is slightly annoying, but manageable.

    I've used this app to make music for since 2020. But recently i haven't been able to use it because when I try to load in, it keeps saying connection error. My data is fine, and I uninstalled it and re installed it to see of it would fix it. Now it says loading error. I really hope this gets fixed as soon as possible.
  • Overall amazing! But... Feb 23, 2018

    there are still a few things you have to work on! For example the AutoTune Feature, it sounds all muffled up if I want to use it, also you should add more Vocal Effects for example a Slapback Effect or a Distortion Effect and a Vocal Harmony or Voice Pitch Changer. There are all sorts of ideas, these Features above I suggest. I use this App almost everyday and I create amazing songs with it. Also, please try to change the Microphone Frequency or make it sound better because it doesn't sound that bad but it could be better as well. Just make it sound a bit more realistic like the Application "Take" does. They make it sound really good and also have many Effects. And please make the Beats or Music that you import automatically change the BPM to the BPM of the Beat. For example I upload a Beat with 140BPM, but BandLab still tells me its 120BPM, which is why I have to first add my Vocal Tracks, then change the BPM, then add the Beat to match the BPM. I don't mean to stress you add, those are just things to make your App even better! Love you, keep going forward!

    Tbh, I have this on my android mobile, but my primary rig is a high-ish end laptop which I've added extra memory and a 2nd 2 TB SSD to, and anyway I'm a hobbyist; I do "music" just to be stupid. This is laid out well, it's not weird to figure out, and the features/included efx are really good. I would even use it often, were it not for the lag this lousy mobile causes. It's much more straightforward and entirely less spastic than NTrack 9.

    This app is amazing. It is capable of creating a very expansive soundscape, intricate in detail, while simple in its execution. It's user-friendly and even a novice should have little to no trouble with the interface. The reasons I reserved a star: there are far too few plug-ins and a sizable amount of the instruments dont sound authentic. All in all, its the best free music app available.

    So far, there were multiple glitches I've gotten. Like a completely different track showing for something else. The one that's been happening to my recent recordings that caused them to be forever syncing. I have tried everything, closing the app, restarting the app, restarting my phone, it doesn't work. This has been happening for about 25 days. Plz fix this, I really like this app :(
  • Pros and cons Jun 2, 2020

    By Nashler
    Update: At this point it rarely works longer than an hour. I delete and download this multiple times a day to make one song :( it happens at any point. Right when I open the app. Or when I’m about to finish. Or when I’m in the middle of recording. It will just force close or suddenly sign me out and say I can’t sign back in. (Error or this link doesn’t exist) That’s when I have to delete it. Also, When I open an existing file. It will randomly say my microphone doesn’t work or I have to choose that option. But It was fine a second ago when I recorded. I’ll push record and it’s an old recording I deleted etc. these are the problems I have. But I still use it with all these frustrations because there’s nothing else out there like this.. So there is no other app out there like this. It’s amazing. I will continue to use it even though there are a few glitches and errors that occur. Sometimes for no reason. It will force close. Then I spend a few minutes deleting the app and downloading again. That seems to be the only suggestion from the support group. It does work but a little inconvenient. Sometimes songs just disappear. I’ve had a few occasions of them showing up again. But I’ve also lost a few. I just save them to my computer now. For me, the pros outweigh the cons. Only because I’ve never found a app this simple where you can record your music and singing. Also, the community is awesome :)
  • I love bandlab but sometimes it’s retarded Jun 3, 2018

    OK bandlab pisses me off sometimes when I upload a song and I select the genre and picture for it sometimes it just won’t upload under the genre I selected Or with the right picture and it really frustrates me because I can’t seem to get my music where I want it to be without band lab changing the genre for no apparent reason and then when you go to delete it to re-upload it sometimes it will not delete it and the song will become glitched and unremovable and it really aggravates me having three versions of the exact same song on my profile and it triggers my OCD seeing a massive amount of unremovable songs on my profile like CAN I JUST HAVE A CLEAN PROFILE WITH 1 OF EVERY SONG NOT 3 COPYS!!!!!!! And also for some apparent reason not even bandlab support knows how to fix it I’ve tried to explain but every time the advice was useless UGHHHHHHHH!!!!!. *sigh*... so basically in conclusion if you want your music to get herd I would highly recommend a bandlab it’s really a great app but sometimes it just is so slow clunky and glitchy and The suppose it “support” they offer doesn’t really help for some of the things that is wrong with the app

    Band lab lags like no other while I’m trying to record and edit. There’s a quarter of a second of delay from when I hit a string on my guitar to when I hear it in my headphones and that can really mess you up when you’re trying to be precise. You can’t adjust the click track to be one consistent click too. There’s always an accent note and I don’t need one. I just need to know I’m keeping with the beat. I keep experiencing issues with my headphones too, but I have not yet diagnosed if that’s band lab or my brand new headphones being defective. I have ALL of my volume knobs (in the software, on my computer, and my interface) all turned all the way up and every now and then the sound I get back is barely audible despite being recorded at a reasonable volume in the first place. Hell, the bar is jumping up past yellow in some parts when I hit my bass a little too hard while recording. It’s a free useful site but it’s not without its issues. I recommend it for working on your own personal projects (like I’m doing right now) but don’t sink something special into this product. You’ll want something of a better quality at that point.

    At first, this app was wonderful. And still, I think this is a great way to get started with music. Unfortunately, it has gone downhill severely after using it for 2 years. Songs I've made randomly disappear, notes shift entire octaves, there is way to much latency, and finally, it just won't save my music. The app is quickly deteriorating. The help center was helpful at first, but they seem to have given up on me. Edit: problems have gotten further out of control rendering bandlab inoperable.
