What is uFXloops Music Studio?

uFXloops Music Studio is a music studio application that allows you to create custom music tracks through the use of samples. Using samples you can create your own instruments, your own beats, your own music, and eventually export to a number of audio formats. It’s a fairly complex application with a lot of features.

The first thing we noticed about this app is the busy interface. It’s not bad but it will take the average user some time to get used to but that’s because there is a lot to do in this application. You can edit samples, edit instruments, construct your music, and a bunch of other stuff that musicians will appreciate. Once you learn your way around the interface it’s not difficult to use. There is just that slight learning curve right there at the beginning.

I’m not a musician so I’m not entirely certain which features musicians will appreciate the most but there are a ton of features in this app. You can create and edit your own instruments and samples as well as important instruments and samples. If you’re having trouble finding some, the app has a website that features community-maintained sounds and samples for you to download and use. Really, at that point, it’s just about finding the sounds you want, editing them to create more sounds that you want, and then arranging them in the editor.

uFXloops Music Studio review

It's about time Android got more apps like this.

PROS
  • More features than you can shake a stick at.
  • Community based sound library helps you find samples to use.
  • Instrument and sample editors are really useful.
  • So is the pattern editor for percussion.
  • Use samples or create your own samples.
CONS
  • The interface is slighly overwhelming if you're new at this kind of stuff.
  • This is probably better used as a tool as part of a larger studio rather than the main focus of one.
  • It's hard to quantify, but it feels like this app should be able to do more. It can do a lot but it feels incomplete if that makes sense.
7.0
Among other things, there is a pattern editor so you can create drum beats easier, live tempo shifting, pitch shifting, the standard stuff like volume mixers, and many other features. Thankfully the core app is free to download and use so you can get a real feel for the application before you buy into the app. If you’re a musician or you like to create and arrange music, it’s worth giving this app a chance.
