"Es sin duda el mas comodo y accesible de los softwares de audio"

What do you like best?

Lo que mas disfruto de FL studio es la cantidad de generadores de sonido que vienen incluidos. Tambien su interfaz de aspecto futuristico (en este caso en la versión 12 que utilizo). Cuando se trata de crear un OST de buena calidad y con una buena libreta de sonidos por defecto este software brinda una alta gama de opciones.

Tambien se complementa muy bien con otros softwares de audio, ya sean plugins o inclusive con controladores MIDI tiende a ser la mejor opción de manejo gracias a que tiene alto rendimiento y compatibilidad con periféricos y programas alternos.

What do you dislike?

Me gustaria la simplificación de ciertas acciones en el software que pueden llegar a crear dificultades totalmente evitables para el usuario. Cabe destacar tambien que en ocasiones tiende a ser lento por el uso de programas alineados al FL que pueden ocasionar inclusive el detenimiento del software en pleno uso. Este problema que menciono puede notarse claramente en un bug del metrónomo que posee dicho programa.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Para aquellos que estan interesados en buenos resultados y en calidad de edición de audio, recomiendo ampliamente utilizar este software. Puede facilitar en gran escala tu trabajo dandote no solo beneficios laborales sino tambien academicos, bien sea para impartir el conocimiento sobre su uso o simplemente mejorar el nivel de uso de tus compañeros de trabajo.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Con FL Studio he podido crear y editar gran parte del audio con el cual trabajamos el material audiovisual de nuestra empresa, tomando en cuenta que es por obvias razones el audio un factor fundamental en nuestro trabajo, no escatimamos en pujar y pujar hasta obtener el producto que necesitamos y en eso siempre hemos podido contar con este software.

"FL Studio is a Classic."

What do you like best?

It has professional features. It allows me to make my own beats with a very fun and easy workflow, providing me with a lot of options to manipulate the sounds at my preference. It has a friendly and goodlooking interface to start creating tracks quickly. FL Studio 12 is the best version that i have used. I like the fact that FL Studio is always keeps updating to provide a great variety of pluggins that improve my creative capacity. I love the way that i can handle the elements on the channel rack just dragging and clicking, putting all at my disposal to have a better manipulation to make experiments with the sounds, allowing me to mix every type of melodies and genres with a real good sound quality.

What do you dislike?

I wouldn`t complain about his functionality. But it would be awesome some upgrades for the audio record and mastering tasks, to make it a more complete DAW. For example to audio recording i better like tha quality that Cubase offers and to mastering and all the producing process i rather prefer Adobe Audition when it comes to the features that it offers me to do the task, it's a matter of tastes. I use FL to make my beats; sequence and mixing the sounds, it is a perfect DAW for these tasks.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend it, because it allows you to develop your own tracks, instrumentals or beats and mix the sounds in a profesional way depending of how much you handle the elements. But you don`t have to be a musician or know the musician language to create your own melodies and vibes, you just have to familiarize yourself with the features and start to create.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I started to use FL Studio for fun creating electronic music tracks and i got hooked immediately .Once i improved my level i started to experiment with the sounds using samples and creating some awesome beats, but i just did it for fun. One day a friend of mine asked me for a hip hop beat and it like to him so much that i ended making all the beats for his mixtape, since then i becoming a beatmaker. I create beats for upcoming artists, always trying to give them a special type of vibe. Right now i am preparing a pack of beats to share it on youtube to make myself know as a beatmaker and hopefully sell some and get some extra money.

"FL STUDIO ES EXCELENTE PROGRAMA PARA TRABAJAR EN LA PRODUCCIÓN MUSICAL "

What do you like best?

me gusta la libertad que me ofrece para crear tracks y jingles de radio ,FL Studio siempre fue y sigue siendo una de las mejores herramientas para manipular bucles y combinarlos con clips MIDI. Tambien cuenta con una alta gama de PLugins por defecto y la posibilidad de manejarlos y combinarlos para generar un sonido híbrido.

What do you dislike?

Particularmente con FL studio tengo algunas imcompatibilidades de formatos, tambien considero que en procesos de composición complejos, tiende a generar un peso innecsario en la tarjeta procesadora. pero son muy pocos los incovenientes que presenta el software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Puedo recomendarles que se nutran de información accediendo a tutoriales para crear sonidos diferentes y personalizar lo mas posible su composición digital. Fl Studio es una buena opción para novatos y beatmakers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Como musico solista y productor de variado contenido auditivo, FL me brinda la posibilidad de aprender a generar sonidos completos sin la necesidad de tantos complementos externos, tambien me brinda una alta gama de resultados indiferentemente del género en el cual se quiera incursionar

"This gets your music ideas from your mind to sound the fastest way possible."

What do you like best?

Workflow, UI, Sequencer, Mixers, Amazing VSTs that come FREE, Image-Line software in generally is all amazing. THANK you for creating this DAW. It is the best out there for creating Hip-Hop and R&B. It has brought soo many of my ideas to life because you've given me the best platform to bring out my ideas.

What do you dislike?

I don't really dislike anything about the software - I just don't like how the whole music industry has built such bad outlook on FL because of how they started as just a sequencer and nothing else. The only dislike is the bad vides you get from Music Indsutry vets who have unedcuated ideas about the DAW.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Complete the MAC version and Image line WILL take over the music industry and enhance the world!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's given the best possible option to create my music ideas. I love every moment using this because it makes my eyes glisten and makes my ears happy when I create something that I love to hear!

"Fun way to create music"

What do you like best?

FL studio is easy to work with software with simple and beautiful user interface. It's easy for a person with musical education or with plain understating of music and rhythm to start creating in FL Studio in a matter of couple minutes of introduction.

What do you dislike?

What I don't like about it is that the sound while playing on standard PC or notebook keyboard is not synced properly. There's a delay between pressing a button and hearing a sound which makes it very difficult to play on simple keyboards

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're into music FL studio is a great tool for you to get started in composing music. It's very simple to set it up and start composing using multiple instruments. It has a lot of great plugins and tools that can help you to achieve desired sound. Even if you're not composing it's still a powerful tool to create sound effects remove noise from audio sources, etc. You don't need to have external sound imitating keyboard or synthesizer to connect to your device to use it. You can compose and play just by using your average keyboard of your laptop or PC. Plus one of the greatest thing you can do is to buy additional instruments which will make your program act as a full synthesizer with all the effects and instruments within.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use FL studio to create sounds for my video presentations. I also use it to compose music. It's really beneficial to have custom sounds for your brand and those sound could become a part of your brand's identity

"Highly capable, easy to use and fun music production for all"

What do you like best?

- Friendly user interface

- Ease of use

- Variety of built-in tools, and also plugins (beginning with producer edition)

- VST Support

- Soundfont support

- Overall quality of generators and effects

- Great sound quality

What do you dislike?

- Sometimes It does not recognize a few obscure VST plugins. Very rare but can be annoying.

- My PC is 5 years old, and it has difficulty running new versions. But I am satisfied with an old version too.

- Piano roll is great. except it needs improvements. For example; I want to be able stretch up/down or equalize the velocity of multiple key strokes simultaniously

Recommendations to others considering the product

FL studio is amazing for beginners and amateurs. There is a learning curve, but it is very negligible. It has a great value for money. As you get more comfortable and experienced, you can get into details and professional level.

Some musicians and producers say that FL is more of a hobbyist software rather than a professional solution... I disagree. But I am not a professional musician; I just heard awesome music made with it and saw videos of a few musicians create wonders with it.

I was stingy so I began with Fruity Edition but it turns out that Producer Edition was the better option for me. That's why I recommend people to carefully examine what edition they need,

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am not a professional musician or a producer. I use it primarily as a hobby; but for business, I use it to make background music for design animations and presentation videos. It is cheaper than using stock music considering the number of videos to be created and it is better than using corny free music intended for YouTube.

I can make the song as long as I need rather than editing someone else's music. By making my own music with FL Studio, I can easily put emphasis on something, give a break or build up anticipation in my videos.

I have great fun while making music in FL studio, that's why it is not a drag to make music for our presentations.

"My best friend when we're talking about audio editing."

What do you like best?

I have so much empaty with FL Studio, this becomes to me like a classic tool to produce, generate, mix, equalice. Being honest im always more in comfort with this software. You can add some VST plugins to manage with your own laptop or desktop keyboard.

I started to use just as a beatmaker tool but with the time, just become more familiar with his function and now i can even mix and apply some mastering. Works with a nice list of features, plugins, instruments, samplers, loops and you always going to be learning more and more how to do all your music job on this software.

What do you dislike?

Actually i don't have like official reasons to dislike FL Studio, but that depends on your computer requeriments, and also the version that you get of this software, you must be carefull and contact the sellers deparment of Image-Line, to evoid being scammed with a non official version.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I have to recommend FL Studio because you will work with one of the most used softwares on audio edition, and have a nice features, great compatibilty, very friendly interface and its totally unexpensive comparing with another software of this type.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before FL i had to work with a list of softwares to manage the whole piece together and that was the moment when my full audio it was ready to be share. But now that i become absolutely more familiar with it, i can say that helps me a lot with the time, and also because has a nice compatibility and its totally easy to use.

"This its my OST maker for excelence."

What do you like best?

With FL Studio i work on my soundtracks, wich i add to my audiovisual art. Theres a complete world of FX sounds, plugins with a lot of sounds and the capacity of hybrid everyone. I actually use it for work and for personal audio edit, means that you can work really well on a beat or instrumental to grow on a beatmaker career.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes i think the ram use of FL its too much for his functionality, but that depends the hardware you have to get on it. There's others issues with the rendering time that i don't get so comfort about it. But its a great option for low requirements.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take a shot on FL studio and become a beatmaker and soundtrack professional very easy and fast, there's a lot of tutorials and guides to get it fast to the top with this software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being especific, with FL i can do my all ost work myself, and can learn how to edit the plugins and get the needed sound for the film or the singer. Also if you have a Low requirements pc you'll be very greatfull with his function and results.

"This is my preciated work piece, highly recommended"

What do you like best?

The best part of using FL Studio is, versatility of plugins, and compatibility with MIDI and VST controlers, also you cand find that its very practical to make songs, OST, soundtracks and ambienting audio.

I like the version FL Studio 12 espificicly because i found very easy and professional, all the libraries and effects that provides you to find the best option to make your own music.

What do you dislike?

To be honest there's some moments when the general set get stuck for few minutes and i was woundering if was a problem of my computer but doing in different place when you have a long piece, then take a little breakdown and come along again just normal.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think that just with try one time FL Studio you'll have a lot of time to spend using it, because you try with the rythm and them with the melody, and have a lot of samplers and even sequences of drums, guitars and keyboards, including special audio effects and even some other utilitys.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Especially for bussines i took this program and have hours and hours of work, making music for theater trails, movies, and my own professional music career.

Im beeing using for years and actually i don't think will ever stop use it, because i took the time of make comparations and even try another programs like FL but there's no better choice.

"The Best DAW for Sequencing & Automation"

What do you like best?

FL Studio is an amazing DAW still overlooked by the majority of audio professionals due to its legacy. Yes, it has become a staple with hiphop and EDM producers, but outside that realm it's still pretty much frowned upon. This leads to a vast majority of professionals not realizing two of FL strengths: An incredible sequencer and arranger/playlist and a great mixing platform. Mixing is a breeze in FL, and the mixer hides many incredible tools that a lot of engineers would kill for. The new vector GUI is a great add as well. Macros are also on point.

What do you dislike?

But FL has its downfalls too, of course: Recording directly introduces a clicks and blips in the audio (I have tried it with many different interfaces and this happens with all of them, to more or less extent) and the included effects sometimes don't have the best GUI or are up to par with the similar effects from other DAW's like Logic. GUI could also look a bit less "toyish".

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go for it. Even if you end up using Rewire or something else, the flexibility and swiftness of your ideas will reach new levels.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Each DAW has its own weaknesses. But as a one stop shop for every major component in audio (recoring, sequencing, arranging, mixing) FL is still my go-to choice.

""FL studio is for amateur's" This isn't true, although it's said alot."

What do you like best?

FL studio has been a part of my life for several years, what I like best is how accessible and customizable it is.

Not only have you have a nice, clean user interface, but the fact you can change whatever you want ( even down to the background) to benefit you and your production pipeline makes it even better.

What do you dislike?

There are not many things I dislike about FL studio, the only real thing I can think of is the apparent Input lag when using a MIDI keyboard, but that could just be down to my own device.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are...."New" to producing music, then I would say go for it. It's easy to learn, nice to look at and you can get very technical very fast (If you want to).

I myself have found other DAW's confusing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefits I have realized using this software are that of, Speed and accuracy.

we know what we want, and using FL studio we can quickly produce that.

"Excellent Platform To Start And Grow"

What do you like best?

You buy it and the updates are free forever. It installs very easily with very little questions and configuration. On the music creation side, there are many tools included to get you going. Multiple versions are available at great prices in my opinion. The quality of the output is professional level.

What do you dislike?

The interface can be a bit overwhelming at first, and seem very busy. In order to efficiently use this product you will need a LCD no smaller than 17". It is very possible to go smaller, but it will seem cramped. You need to be at least a semi-organized person to use this product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need commercial quality mastering you "may" want to demo it first. That said, MANY people use FL to create & mix and then use a stand alone mastering program in the end.

"Has come a long way since "FruityLoops!""

What do you like best?

Very easy to pick up and start creating electronic music and backing tracks. Can be used to mix as well as compose, which is great. The ability to quickly create your own tracks for youtube videos, etc. so you don't have to worry about royalty and DMCA is awesome. Heck, even Soulja Boy created his only hit song using FL Studio, so there's that.

As well, there are a TON of tutorials which is super helpful for any piece of software, but especially products in the creative space like FL Studio.

What do you dislike?

As it is for any composition software, the learning curve can seem steep at first and quite daunting. Bringing anyone up to speed takes a while and there's no guarantee they'll make something usable/decent. The company has been adding more and more (just looked it up, it's 18 years old!!) and getting going is a lot more scary now than it used to be.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think there's a free demo so give it a try! It's good stuff and you'll pick it up quickly if you've used audio software in the past. If you are confused, try some youtube tutorials!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use this so we don't have to pay royalities for our video/audio bumpers and things like hold music. Several of our employees have musical backgrounds and enjoy the ability to use some of that to help the company. It's almost a perk at this point, plus we get to use the music for free and unlimited.

"Fantastic, Powerful, Expandable Software with Long-Term Value"

What do you like best?

Lifetime free updates. I bought FL Studio in 2002 (back then it was called Fruityloops...the name change was probably a good move). That was version 3. Fourteen years later, I'm using FL Studio 12. I have purchased some upgrades along the way to get additional plugins, features, and samples, but updating to the newest version is always free (and usually includes updates to plugins, too).

FL Studio is a powerful sequencer and creative tool, and you don't need any additional hardware to make great music (aside from a pair of headphones). I sometimes use a MIDI controller, but I have built complex songs on my laptop using nothing but the integrated touchpad mouse and computer keyboard. My next laptop will have a touchscreen, and I look forward to exploring the many features they've built into recent versions for touchscreens.

What do you dislike?

The last time I checked, FL Studio did not support the AAC file format (although it supports just about everything else).

The video player plugin is very limited and difficult to work with. It's only designed for syncing purposes (you cannot export a video, only audio) but for my workflow I usually just make some notes about when I need soft hits, hard hits, transitions, etc.

Recommendations to others considering the product

FL Studio is an amazing program with lasting value through lifetime free updates. It shines in sequencing and loop-based music creation, and that functionality is quick and easy to learn. There is incredible depth available to more experienced users. I make extensive use of the well-designed piano roll in all my projects, and always use a number of automation clips, which can be linked to any parameter. An experienced user can produce highly complex, nuanced, professional music with FL Studio.

FL Studio does allow you to record through a mic or line input, but it doesn't support multiple takes (you have to manually save each take) and recorded audio has a time limit (default is five minutes, although you can increase it to whatever value you want). If you are looking for a workhorse studio recording program, FL Studio is probably not the best choice—although it very well might be the best value.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used FL Studio to create music for both audio and video projects. It plays a crucial role in my creative process.

"Best overall DAW with genuine free updates always keeping you up to trend with features and demands."

What do you like best?

The lifetime free updates have to be the best feature because it allows you to come back to it whenever you're ready and still be using cutting edge technology capable of doing all modern concepts and ideas.

What do you dislike?

Learning curve (although not unique to FL Studio), since its able to do all things it can be overwhelming especially to newcomers especially if one wants to get good. Music theory alone is a big subject however so its more of a general criticism than one aimed squarely at FL Studio.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want the best overall Digital Audio Workstation capable of doing all the things you could want to do with music, production, recording and sound work (out the box or via plugins) this is your best bet, especially if you want to stay updated to the latest enhancements in the sector without having to pay a yearly fee like most / all other offerings.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It enables me to create music / sound effects for my game / product creations and to keep in tap with the latest advancements and features in the sector. The interface is pleasing and the plugin compatibly and free core updates to the base product make it a best in class in my opinion.

"One of the best beat software"

What do you like best?

Fruity Loops is both simple to use and powerful, without an hard learning curve.

There is a great community on the web that make really easy to find informations on many tasks that you may find necessary for making beats and producing, or techniques that you want to incorporate into your beats.

You will also find a lot of stock samples that every "first time producer" will be happy to use. Also, you can request hints from the program when in certain windows, trough the hint bar.

There are 3 different version of the software: the Fruity Edition is for Basic melody & loops creation, The Producer Edition is for full song creation & mic recording, and the Signature Edition offers full song creation & extra plugins not included within the Signature Edition.

I think that you’ll be greatly satisfied should you decide to give it a run. It’s all good. Excellent price and quality.

What do you dislike?

I honestly can’t find anything that’s not to like about FL Studio 12. From the UI to the advanced controls, everythings works really fine. This is the best production software I've ever worked with. If your focus is audio then this is probably not for you but for the electronic musician, songwriter, experimental producer or live performer then you really should give it some of your time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend going with the Producer Edition, as the Fruity Edition is not a functional version.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

FL Studio is for aspiring producers and beat makers. While typically frequented by hip hop and house music producers, producers within other genres of music can benefit from FL Studios suite of music production tools.

"Mobile Creative Studio"

What do you like best?

FL Studio has had a very distinct drum sequencer since it's inception, and I couldn't enjoy it more. I use both PC and Mobile versions, and am happy to say that they integrate with each other. While the mobile version has less functionality than the PC version, is enables be to create soundscapes on airplane trips and bus rides. This is more than enough to get an idea established, then transfer to the PC version for more editing and mixing options.

What do you dislike?

While I haven't has a problem with the PC version crashing, the Mobile version will definitely bomb when doing certain edits. Always save often! When I move or delete a large group of notes, and hit the "undo" button, the program is almost guaranteed to crash, losing whatever you worked on since the last save.

Recommendations to others considering the product

While this may not be the best software for mixing and mastering a track, it definitely helps with the writing process and can export MIDI or WAV for whatever you are doing your final master in.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When writing music as a single composer, the benefits of having so many Virtual Instruments at your disposable is priceless.

"FL Studio, make music with basic knowledge."

What do you like best?

I've been using FL Studio for several years now, I started using it a couple of years ago when I was interested in video/audio editing to make short clips or intros. It was a really nice experience, it wasn't that hard to understand,after a few days using it I was already making my first track. I studied music for about seven years, and to use this software I only needed the basic knowledge, nothing complicated, if you know something about rhythm and melodies, it will be easy.

What I like the most is the fact that you can actually create any kind of music with a nice interface and a couple of clicks, it's easier to learn than others I've used and there is a big community behind it, you'll always find something about fl studio on youtube or google.

What do you dislike?

I think FL Studio is great for creating music from scratch but not so awesome when it refers to editing audio that already exist, the spectrum of edition and the interface is not the best to edit audio, it could be better, There are other options like Adobe Audition or wavepad that let you edit meticulously all the audio properties.

Important! If the audio you are going to edit comes in .flp format then it'll be great because it's the default edition format for fl studio.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are going to create tracks from scratch it's great, also if you don't have a lot of knowledge about music and need to create something, it's the one that can help you definitely.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've used FL studio to create my own intros and presentations for my projects, it's by far the best software to create short tracks.

"Excellent introduction to audio production with advanced features"

What do you like best?

FL Studio makes it so easy for anyone to pick up and learn how to make music in a matter of minutes. The pattern beat sequencer makes creating loops a breeze and the pattern system in general makes creating interesting songs simple.

What do you dislike?

The interface is not too customizable, I would like to be able to rearrange interface elements similar to the way you can have multiple workspaces in Adobe programs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend not giving up until you have spent a least 1 month with the product. Use Youtube tutorials and download free sounds, as the beginner sounds provided are weak.

FL Studio is really easy to slow down audio, remove noise, and clip audio into multiple sections and batch export.

As a professional Audio Engineer, I think this is great tool for which you don't really need that much training. Its a Daw that allows you to create great beats. Its great for for Hip-Hop, R&B, Reggaeton, Latin Music, etc.

What do you dislike?

The Mac version is still on a Beta stage. I think they should release a full version just like for Windows.

"The one man orchestra "

What do you like best?

The ability to create your own composition just by playing around with random options is very fun. Ever music lover , thinks about creating his/her own music . But what if you don't know how to play and live music. There's where electronic softwares come in. Fl studio offers various VTS plugins , which are easily accessible by all. You have all types of sounds including different types of synths, percussion sounds and tones which are not that good in most softwares. Once you learn a little about music and the software you are good to go. Fl Stuidios wide range of tones and sounds help every noobie in the business. You have a built in Vocoder , voice auto tuner which is very useful when recording your own voice. You have audio mixers and effects , like Echo , Phaser which you can add it to your final touch .

What do you dislike?

Music is not like any other software , you need to understand how things tempo's scales and chord work before you can work with it. The software experiences some lag or in this term Latency occurs. Latency is basically a gap or lap which happens. SO if you hit the not C , the sound is played a second later. Which is hard for live players. The playlist is alright to use , But could be better.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would really recommend that you learn the basic of music. You can start with the different types of beats and styles and slowly progress to chords,scales and lead instruments. Once you get the hang of how things work you can start to make your own composition within hours.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Latency was a big problem which I faced during my days with this software. Which can be solved by buying a soundcard for your device. Get a MIDI keyboard if you can. Trust me it will make your work much more easier. Just like the term to you don't have to write code to own a computer store . You just need to know how things work around. You can create your own composition in hours. I would recommend to export all your sounds as a uncompressed format and put into a audio editing software to equalize and sequence better.

What do you like best?

I really enjoy the ease of use and the ability to use virtually an endless amount of plugins (VSTs). The User Interface is incredible. Once you get use to it you can do virtually whatever you want inside the program. The ability to move part of the GUI around allow for a customized look for you and only you!

What do you dislike?

The one problem I seem to consistently run into memory issues. Whenever I have to much happening at once the program will run out of memory and freeze. However there are versions that allow for more than 2GB of RAM usage so I will be upgrading to that very soon!

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are going to be a heavy user and intend on production on a heavy level, be sure to purchase the x64 Bit Version as you will run into memory issues otherwise.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been using FL Studio my entire music production career, which was FL 7. I have accomplished much in my time using it and the ease of use and ability to support nearly all of the VST's on the market, I consider FL to be a staple for any producer, whether they are new to the scene or a veteran!

"FL Studio is more than just a DAW for beginners"

What do you like best?

I can quickly setup a project in seconds.

What do you dislike?

Some components aren't well connected and need hardwired by a user who understands what they are doing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

FL Studio is working on a mac version of their software. It is much anticipated and I cannot wait to try it. If you're a windows user looking to get into audio production, then FL Studio is a great start.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I love how quickly I can get a project started with FL Studio. I have been using this product for 5+ years now, it is great for beginners to get their head around how DAW's operate, but even when you are producing audio professional it is still a great tool to get create music.

I recommend this software to everyone who asks and I proud to say it.

"I love this program!!! Seriously. "

What do you like best?

I love the ease of use. I just sit down, and can immediately start making music. There's a ton of plugins that you can use, and there is a depth that you can continue to explore.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, it can be a little resource heavy, but it should be expected from a DAW.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Keep exploring the software. Go search for VSTs online to get fun new sounds. You can pretty much make any type of music you want with it.

The best thing about fruity loops is without hesitation the lifetime free updates. It's a simple but powerful DAW. and you can easily find help and tutorials online.

What do you dislike?

The user interface looks a bit dated compared to its competitors and it's not appropriate to perform live.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It was my first music production software and I recommend it to other beginners who want to get into music production. There are plenty of free VST and samples available online.

"Amazing Audio Program"

What do you like best?

FL Studios was the first program I utilized as a Professional DJ to remix and edit tracks. The interface is simple and easy to use. Additionally, FL Studios has several plugins that let you further enhance your productions.

What do you dislike?

FL Studios tends to be resource heavy and slows down overall computing performance. On occasion plugins and samples take a bit long to load. But don't let that deter you, I seriously enjoy using this program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try, it truly is a great product, especially if you're just beginning to learn.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I primarily use FL Studio for Audio Editing. It is an intuitive tool that provides you with the quality of professional production.

"Production Needs Met"

What do you like best?

I learnt sound/music production with the demo version of FLstudio, It took me some time anyways but the process was relatively easy and interesting. FL studio is an outstanding software if you are interested in making beats, music or recording. Although, there are more advanced softwares, this one is professional enough for quality production that can compete anywhere in the world.

What do you dislike?

The software had some problems with my soundcard for a while, I would have prefered if there was an automatic response to show what the prioblem was,it saves time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

All your music production needs in one software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Audio recording.

"Best music software!"

What do you like best?

FL Studio is my first and I think the best software to making music. It has great library of sound and plugins. And there are also many thirdparty plugins (thanks to VST). I use piano and orchestral plusing for my work. At first look FL Studio seems to have very weird interface but if you use it for some time it is great and simple. At the same time FL Studio is very advanced.

What do you dislike?

I don't use FL Studio now but I remember that 2-3 years ago I had few problems with newer versions. But problems are probably gone.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend FL Studio for begginners and more advenced users. It has everything you probably need to make great music.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was using FL Studio for my own hobby. From rock music I turns into orchestral music and starts creating my own music. I don't use FL Studio now but if I had to create my own music now I will definitely use FL Studio. Here are my few videos with my music created in FL Studio + EWQL plugin:

"A Beginner's Review"

What do you like best?

Fl Studio is quite simple to use, and its popular enough that you can find whatever you need online. Pretty versatile, and like any program, the UI may be pretty complicated but you soon learn what tools you'll need to get what you're looking for.

What do you dislike?

The Fruity version is fairly limited, but the price to access some of the features in the Studio version is not likely something a Beginner would commit to. Namely features such as the ability to properly automate the songs and to record/import music.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Audacity is still a viable tool for sound editing for those short of cash.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For people using this program for fun, there's a lot to learn from it. The potential to take it from a hobby to a more serious level isnt difficult though, and should serve the users well for any of their future endeavours.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It makes it really easy to make good enough music to keep someone who lacks talent going

"Good for beginners"

What do you like best?

I really like the piano roll and the free to use mixer is really good.

What do you dislike?

If you're trying to do something advanced you will soon find the limits of this software. Fl studio is not enough for professional production. One of the limits are in the first place the flexibility of the software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're a beginner it's a really nice peace of software to learn in.
