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.

"Time to switch to another software."

January 21, 2012  |  By BigYunus69

 |  Version: FL Studio 10.0.2

Pros

None discovered before I found an unacceptable feature.

Cons

FL now requires to load VST patches through internet??? how retarded is that???? That's an absolute NO-NO. And FL will loose almost half of it's fans with this. So I don't recommend their software anymore to 1000's of my musician customers.

Summary

It's time to find a professional level studio that doesn't require internet connection for functionality.

"Complicated initially, but extremely powerful overall."

August 04, 2011  |  By miksterix

 |  Version: FL Studio 10.0.2

Pros

Comes with a good selection of basic and not-so-basic synths to use, very compatible with just about any VST, and an easy to navigate side-bar browser. The step sequencer is also very useful for drum automation

Cons

It requires a good audio interface, so if you don't have one of them, things wont sound brilliant. Also, it can be very daunting when you first start out on it, and requires a lot of time to learn to use.

"Truly useful addition to my tools"

June 05, 2011  |  By web_bug

 |  Version: FL Studio 10.0.2

Pros

Sequencing is fantastic
Track Layout excellent
Audio Clip editing is easy
Syncing clips from various sources is very good

Cons

Mastering is a bit weak compared to Logic

Summary

fruity loops is really good at a lot of things. Building rhythm blocks for practicing. Creating toon loops so can learn new songs or patterns. Recording you own loops and making sure they are perfectly synced. The one area it falls down in is final mix quality. I don't know why, but if you create all your tracks in in FL and then mix them to final master in Logic you get a better cleaner final product than mixing down the same tracks in FL.
