Thoughts on Fruity Loops

Some of you might have seen this logo. It is of probably one of the most popular music making software, Fruity Loops Studio. I think it doesn't work on mac and for mac you should probably look at Ableton Live.

Anyways, I have been using Fruity Loops for some 3 years, I have to say it's great. It is often recommended for starters even though is not very easy to start with. It has insane amounts of tutorials on youtube. Some are noobish but will do the trick or give the main idea for those beginners. The creators of FL Studio (Image-Line) have their own channel full of tutorials.

Whoever is gonna call FL noob software is wrong.. You cannot judge software by looking at it's logo. Fruit doesn't necesarilly mean it is for fruitheads. For those who don't know, yes, you can make any genre within it (but it's not the special feature, most such software is like this). You will probably need vst plugins for your specific genre. What makes it good is the way you can automate everything. You will probably want to look at FL if you want make something more like dance,techno, glitch, drum and bass...

I used to use it exclusively. It's pretty good.
I do prefer Reason with Abelton now, but I went back to it last week and it still stands up as a great (beats music) producing program.
(Arranging in particular is really handy with it).

I don't know why, but I just like ProTools better. Am I a tool?

I played around with Fruity Loops a few years back and made some pretty cool tunes.
It's one of the easier programs to learn and still very powerful.

I've been using fruity loops lately but I should try the other software such as reason and pro tools.
