BandLab Update: Communities, Explore 2.0, iPhone X Support

TL;DR: Introducing Communities! Join a Community on BandLab. Find musicians to make music with, engage with other users, or discover new music on the brand new Explore page. The BandLab iOS app now has iPhone X support and a new Get Started screen with featured tracks and quicker access to the Tuner, QR Scanner and Audiostretch!

Communities on BandLab

BandLab takes social to a whole new level with Communities. Wanna share your love for a music genre? Looking for like-minded musicians or beatmakers to collab with? You can now join communities around mutual love and passion; musicians and fans sharing their favourite tunes, photos, videos, or just waxing lyrical in musical debates. Join a Community of lit beatmakers who stay wokeelectronic music lovers, blues heads, or just go ahead and create your own.  Communities can be public, private or closed – there’s a little something for everyone.

Now available on bandlab.com, and coming soon to iOS and Android apps.
