FL Studio, formerly known as FruityLoops, allows users to produce and edit high quality music. You can arrange, compose, edit, record, master and mix music professionally. Customizable skins allow you to personalize your workspace. With newer versions, mobile devices can be used, as well.
The FL Studio is so sophisticated that it can multitask quite easily. It edits audio and manipulates it so pitch is correct and shifted, harmony is improved, timing is stretched, the beat and the slicing are detected and the audio is warped. All this is done just by copying and pasting like you would edit a text document.
The interface and plug-in parameters can be set to automatic just by drawing, recording, using spline based curves or generators along with link control. These are just a few of the great features that the FL Studio can perform. Also, with FL Studio you can save and export audio on to MIDI, WAV, OGG, CD and WAV to enable you to get loops, songs and beats for free.
You may want to download the free demo and try the product before buying it. You will not know what it can actually do until you try it. The demo has every feature installed on the program, but unfortunately lacks some of the effects and instruments. As a test drive, this offers enough to decide if you wish to purchase the program.
There is a Channel Window tab that allows you to find the sounds of the instruments you want to use in your song or music. There are two types of instruments; these are sample players and software synthesizers. To add these features to your music all you have to do is copy and paste the samples.
You are now ready to start composing your own music. You can either play the music by using the controller keyboard or enter the notes manually into the piano roll.
Here comes the best part. Once you have your music all loaded up, you can start arranging your music. Add audio clips, automation clips and pattern clips. You can also mix your music, adding special effects such as delays, a chorus or a reverberation to your music.
The software can cost anywhere from fifty dollars to three hundred, but once you own it, you will have free lifetime updates, so essentially, it is a one time purchase with a lifetime of use. Customer service is friendly and the creators have even put in a tips section to help improve the performance on your computer.
Overall, this software is a top notch music maker that can do just about all that you want it to do. If making, creating and remixing music is your passion or even a hobby, this is software that is a must for you.
