BandLab 10

WINNER: BandLab 10

Price: Free
Contact: BandLab

BandLab has always excelled in knowing where to keep things simple and where to be complex. It’s an advantage which comes with a focus on mobile from the get-go – it feels like a more complete experience than a ‘trimmed down’ version of a desktop DAW.

Version 10 of the social music-making platform embodies this principle with its key feature additions: A powerful new sampler which lets you import your own files, streamlined mastering algorithms with multiple presets, and the option to share tracks directly to TikTok.
