iOS Release Notes

v9.0.0 - 30.09.19

Introducing BandLab 9.0! With this major update, we bring to you exciting Mix Editor features and...a BRAND NEW CHAT!

Custom FX Presets

Ever wanted to customise a preset or create one that’s uniquely yours? Guess what, now you can!

Add, remove, arrange and adjust any of the effects inside a preset to take your track to the next level. If you prefer to put together a brand new preset, go ahead and choose from over 40 effects — including reverbs, equalisers, and compressors — at your disposal.

To tweak your favourite preset, just hit the FX button on any track, scroll to the preset of your choice and tap the Edit icon. To create a new preset from scratch, simply scroll to “None” instead and start from there.


When you work on a 1M beat that contains layers upon layers of audio and MIDI, it's important to stay focused and minimise any distractions. That's where Cycle comes in handy! Make use of the cycle area to repeatedly play a particular segment of your project. To learn more, read the Cycle article in our help centre.

Instruments Browser

We've updated the Instruments Browser, making it easier to find the exact sounds you want. We believe that the all-new smart filters and curated collections will spark a whole lot of inspiration for your next big hit. 

Note: These features will be rolled out gradually over the next few weeks. Keep a lookout for them!
