MuLab is a free music studio app featuring a range of editing tools. The package comes complete with synth effects, virtual drum sets and more in this robust production setup.

Virtual studio

Sitting somewhere between expensive premium and free starter alternatives, MuLab offers a surprising depth. Perfect for a beginner looking to learn or an intermediate seeking more editing options, the suite has enough beneath the surface to craft impressive musical creations. The interface is deceptively simple with everything labelled clearly but with advanced options available. While absolute beginners will need some time to get to grip with the basic ideas of digital music production, a click and drop style chord input helps this process along. Additional features not usual to a free product include synths, samplers, hundreds of preset instruments and a solid collection of editing options.

One of the best

MuLab has no business being such a good studio app. Free products generally require a premium or subscription service but here everything is available right out of the box. Integration features with other software makes it a perfect companion or stand-alone program. Beginners may find themselves feeling a little lost but the clarity of the options make for easy exploration. A great pick-up for all music lovers.
