Fruity Loops music software is now known as FL Studio. It is a digital audio workstation developed by the Belgian company Image Line Software. Here are my thoughts on FL Studio.
I bought this software a few months ago and all in all I think it’s an excellent, very professional program. I was very excited when it was delivered to me. I stayed up all night checking it out and lost all track of time. I started creating beats that very night and began working on a new song.
Next day, after a few hours rest, I was back at it. I’m already used to recording studio software (like Logic, Reason and Cubase) so this one was pretty easy. I found the user interface very user friendly and interactive. With FL Studio (formerly Fruity Loops music software), one can focus more on the music rather than figuring out how to make it. This is one of the reasons I rate this software very highly.
I love the fact that FL Studio supports and is able to create a multitude of file formats. It has a pretty flawless interpolation system as well. The built-in sounds and effects are great.
When it comes to mixing, producing and live performance, this program is one of the best. It comes with tons of video tutorials and the best support with excellent help sections. It comes with loads of VST Plugins and also allows you to install your own. The sound quality and recording is great as well.
There are a few versions of FL Studio available. They include FL Studio 10 Fruity Loops (sells for $99), FL Studio 10 Producer (sells for $199), and FL Studio 10 Signature Bundle (sells for $299).
What can FL Studio 10 do?
- Audio editing and manipulation including pitch correction, pitch shifting, harmonization, time-stretching, beat-detection & slicing, audio warping and standard audio manipulation (cut/paste etc).
- Be hosted in other DAWs as a VST or connected through ReWire.
- Live music performance including video effect visualization.
- Automate most interface and all plugin parameters by recording, drawing, spline-based automation curves, automation generators with formula based control of links.
- Multi-track audio recording.
- Record & play MIDI input recording from keyboards, drum pads and controllers.
- Sequencing and arranging.
- Mix and remix audio including apply realtime audio effects including delay, reverb & filtering.
- Synthesizer & effect plugin hosting (VST 32 & 64 bit, DX and FL Native format)
