Editors' review

Competition in the world of all-in-one music-creation suites has grown considerably since Fruity Loops first started breaking beats. With a new name and a new interface, FL Studio is reestablishing its place as a full-featured and affordable audio-production program.

The photo-realistic mixing-board interface, littered with small, unlabeled icons and burdened with a confusing file browser, makes the learning curve steeper than it should be. Once you clear that hurdle, though, this enjoyable product will have you making music in no time. The Fruityslicer makes short work of chopping up breaks, and the simple step-based drum machine lets you create your own. You can bind FL Studio to other programs via VSTi and DXi plug-ins. A full selection of software instruments is included so you can start playing immediately. All the usual suspects are there, from vintage, buzzy, analog imitators to wacky sound effects and generic voice samples.

FL Studio offers a tremendous value for what you get. Comparable products cost nearly twice as much. FL Studio's quirky sound generators and interoperability make it a great addition to any studio. Be warned, though: several versions of FL Studio are available, so more features are included as the price goes up.

    "FL is king!"

    August 24, 2014   |   By nicebeans

    Version: FL Studio 11.1

    Pros

    sequencer, midi support, FREE updates for life.

    Cons

    not a thing, i find this daw to very versatile and it completes the job.. professionally.

    Summary

    Ive owned FL Studio for years. Ive also own a few of its competitors. Yet in my opinion FL Studio is far greater for making beats. It can be complex at times however it is also easy to lear for beginners with a little help from the community you'll be a pro in no time. Practice makes perfect! #Beatmaking

    "The free to try cannot be tried."

    October 07, 2013   |   By Holybride

    Version: FL Studio 11.0.3

    Pros

    Nice interface.

    Cons

    The free to try version cannot load music, so I cannot try it at all.
    Because of this, I don't know whether this software is good to edit songs or not.

    "Not for advanced composing"

    January 05, 2013   |   By dfyvr

    Version: FL Studio 10.0.9c

    Pros

    Once you learn how to use it it's fairly simple to compose music

    Cons

    Finding instruments in the "Sytrus" is extremely frustrating. Apparently the have no words for french horns, tubas etc, the brass instrument names are fat, greasy, greasy2 etc. couldn't believe it. They have a trumpet but it's nowhere near the other brass, I really had to give up because it annoyed me too much. I guess I'll have to invest in something like Sibelius.
