Music Studio app review: with sound quality previously only known to desktop applications 2021



Giving the competition a run for its money in the Music category of the App Store is this powerful iPhone and iPad music studio app which, as the name would suggest, provides a mobile music studio with sound quality previously only known to desktop applications and high-end recording equipment.

The best studio recording apps for iPad

This studio recording app makes a great addition to its genre, and although the interface isn’t as flamboyant as some of the comparable developments it more than makes up for its lack of flair with almost unparalleled functionality and ease of use.

I’m thoroughly impressed by what the developer has put on offer here, and I think that the vast majority of musicians amongst you are going to find it to be just great.

This top music studio app for iPhone definitely receives a very strong recommendation from me. Keep reading our Music Studio app review to see why.

Utilize 118 Studio-Recorded Instrument Samples

From the moment you first start using Music Studio you should have pretty much no problem at all figuring out how to use the various features scattered throughout the interface. Everything is fairly self-explanatory to even the most modestly experienced of musicians or bedroom producers.

The app, by default, includes 118 studio-recorded instruments that have been sampled in 16-bit 44.1kHz from real instruments, and there is a customizable 85-key keyboard for you to input notes and rhythms into your compositions.

Record Two Different Instruments Simultaneously

You can also play and record two different instruments at the same time while using two separate keyboard rows to play them simultaneously. This makes for a far greater degree of freedom and should enable you to come up with some pretty interesting pieces.

Final Words

Music Studio is the kind of iPhone and iPad app I wish I’d find a while back while I was still tinkering with some of the more, shall we say, temperamental free apps within the genre. This recording studio app delivers on all fronts and is a valuable asset to any recording musician.
