The ‘Make Your Own Music Sites

Colin Johnson, Reporter

Make Your Own Music (MYOM) sites, are beautiful programs. They allow you to create music without the need of instruments. Some may have certain requirements, but people usually have met these requirements due to other projects and jobs. These tools have helped shaped the music world into what it is today, especially GarageBand. The MYOM sites that are mentioned in this article are down below.

  • Medly
  • FL Studio
  • GarageBand

There are only a few MYOM sites mentioned, but they are all exceptional. Before going into the details, here are the release dates of each software.

  • Medly — March 27, 2015
  • FL Studio — March 16, 2015
  • GarageBand — Oct. 20, 2010


Medly is an outstanding music creation tool. In it, you can place down individual notes into different places, using different instruments to make music. The app is free for download on IOS, but it restricts certain instruments by in-app purchases. Even though you can’t have all the instruments without paying, you do get tons of instruments without paying, and more than enough to make a good song. Medlys’ rating on the app store is 4.7/5 stars, with 2.4k ratings.

FL Studio is a remarkable MYOM. It’s a little more complex than Medly, but is still a powerful tool. It costs $199, but you can download a free trial to see if it fits for you. Unlike Medly, you get all the instruments right away (when bought), but again, you need to buy it. It’s available on Windows,= for download, or you can buy a disk. FL Studio has rated 4.6/5 Stars with 37 ratings, and rightly so, too.Image result for fl studio



Probably the most well known of the bunch, GarageBand comes pre-downloaded on almost every Apple device. In GarageBand, you can use remade loops to make music or play a virtual instrument to make music. In every entry on this list, each program has some dependence on the person using the program. This is shown most prominently with GarageBand. GarageBand songs can be beautifully crafted into masterpieces, or just fall apart, and be complete garbage. But even with the garbage music creators, GarageBand is still an amazing app to use. It’s rated 4/5 stars out of 18.2K ratings.
