BandLab 8.0: Our Biggest Update Yet

Our biggest and most exciting release so far, BandLab 8.0 brings to you many improved creation-based and social features.

Our new and powerful mobile and web recording tools will empower you to new creative horizons, wherever you are.

In case you missed the news on our latest features, here’s a rundown of the brand spanking features available with BandLab 8.0.

Creator Kits

The ultimate beat maker’s mobile tool, Creator Kits are preloaded sound packs arranged in a familiar 4×4 virtual pad controller format. The Creator Kits come in a growing number of familiar genres like Hip Hop and EDM and are available on both the iOS and Android app. You can now create your very own beats wherever you are.

Looper Effects

Our Looper feature now comes with three fully-customisable effects which you can play in real-time. When you lay down a Looper beat, you can throw in a bunch of effects which you control, from swooshing filter effects to a stuttering gater effect and a stopper. Looper Effects is available on both iOS and Android apps. Now you can channel your inner DJ on the go.

Mastering on mobile

We’ve made our highly acclaimed Mastering feature available on iOS and Android! It works exactly the same as it does on our web platform. You can choose from three different Mastering settings – Bass Boost, Enhance Clarity and CD Quality. You can add mastering at the end of your mixing, or to your existing tracks, or even to tracks you upload from your device.

MIDI Editor on mobile

Since we released MIDI Instruments on our mobile app, many of you requested MIDI editing on the mobile Mix Editor itself. We’ve now released a MIDI Editor on Android devices, and it’ll be coming to iOS very soon. You can edit your MIDI recordings – transpose, add or remove notes, and experiment with the arrangement just by using simple gestures. Powerful features like quantization and velocity are available on the web browser version of BandLab.

We’d love to hear your feedback and suggestions. You can always contact us at support@bandlab.com.

All features on BandLab 8.0 are 100% free. Remember to update BandLab to get access to all the latest features. You can download BandLab on the App Store and Play Store.
