Best 9 Music making Apps For Your Smartphone

By Bear

I had fun trying them,

You should try and experiment them by yourself.

I tested many music-making apps and their features, so I built this list from the best I have tried.

Every app has its unique features.

This list makes it easier to choose which one the to best fit your needs.

Here is the list:

#1 – GarageBand
#2 – Fl Studio Mobile
#3 – Soundtrap Studio (by Spotify)
#4 – Auxy
#5 – Music Maker JAM
#6 – Groovepad – Music & Beat Maker
#7 – BandLab – Music Recording Studio & Social Network
#8 – Jambl: Beat Maker & Music Dj
#9 – Groovebox: Beat & Synth Studio

#1 – GarageBand

Price: Free

Simple to play, record, share and sync it to the GarageBand in your computer IF you have a mac.

Work with up to 32 tracks, with a great selection of loops and instruments.

GarageBand can be a solid pick to make music from your phone if you into the Apple ecosystem.

Or have fun with your iPhone, iPad, or Mac.

Free on any Apple platform.

#2 – Fl Studio Mobile

Price: $13.99

Fl studio mobile is a complete music production studio.

It shares a similar style to fl studio on the desktop with fewer features.

This app is a helpful tool for creating ideas on the move, but it can’t compete with desktop DAW.

You can Install FL STUDIO 20 for macOS / Windows, and you can use the FL Studio Mobile Plugin. This is identical to the app, as a plugin inside FL Studio. Get it here

#3 – Soundtrap Studio (by Spotify)

Price: Free

The free version comes with:

Unlimited projects,

3910 loops,

430 instruments and sounds,

150k+ sound effects,

Soundtrap Originals sound packs every second week.

And if you need more, you can upgrade after experimenting with the free version.

As cloud base DAW you can use real-time collaboration inside the same session.

Like I said before, in Fl studio mobile, the app version is more for making ideas on the go.

Since On the computer, the more in-depth features of the DAW perform better.

It’s ideal for getting started and working on little tasks, as well as for experimenting with new ideas.

#4 – Auxy

Price: Free, $4.99 per month or $45.99 per year.

The app is fun, easy, and intuitive with minimal style.

You don’t need any professional knowledge to use it, and the music sounds professional.

The free version doesn’t have many instruments, but you get a great selection if you pay the extra money.

You can only use it on ios. Sorry Android users 🙁

#5 – Music Maker JAM

Price: Free with in-app purchases

Similar to auxy, Music Maker JAM is intuitive and fun to play, but the interface is different and even easier to use.

You can buy coins and use them for new sound packs

If you haven’t technically trained but want to put the thing together in a musical sense, this app is for you.

#6 – Groovepad – Music & Beat Maker

Price: Free with in-app purchases

The app focuses on sound packs that contain loops, and you can unlock sound packs by watching ads or just paying.

After you download the app, a screen offers an optional subscription, but there is little “x” to start the app for free.

For android and ios

#7 BandLab – Music Recording Studio & Social Network

Price: Free

This app is like social media for music.

Listen to users’ creations, create your music inside the app, share it, follow creators, and even massage them.

The developers usually update the app, adding features, and listen to the suggestions the users ask.

#8 – Jambl: Beat Maker & Music Dj

Price: Free with in-app purchases

This app has a unique way of making music; dots on the screen you touch change the pitch and rhythm.

A screen offers an optional subscription right after you download the app, but there is little “x” to start the app for free.

There are many music packs you can experiment with for free, and you can upgrade to a pro version with more features.
