Overview

One of the most powerful pieces of music software on the planet just got better. FL Studio Edition 6, an exciting combination of core enhancements and new plug-ins, is a comprehensive yet easy-to-use virtual music studio for amateur musicians, music pros, teachers, students, and composers, with an impressive collection of sophisticated modules for detailed arranging and editing, straightforward remixing and flawless mastering. Perfectly suited for song creation in any genre, you will be creating wav, MP3 or midi songs or loops only minutes after launching The FL Studio 6. The stunning, photorealistic interface will push your creative forces to new heights. The FL Studio can play any sample file (wav), generator (FL Studio soft- synth), VSTi & DXi) or midi instrument you feed it.

The FL Studio 6 is a pattern-based sequencer, meaning you create your songs in patterns using the Step Sequencer and the Piano Roll view, then combine those pieces together using the Playlist window. After that, you can add a wide range of effects with the ability to automate them for dynamic sweeps, rolling bass lines, and texture changes that really make your music stand out from the rest.

FL Studio has also updated some of the existing features like the browser (where we added a search feature and state recall functions) and FPC (where we added a second bank and envelopes), and new, larger, resizable Mixer, with fully flexible inter-track routing and PDC functions. MIDI functionality has been extended to support multiple MIDI-ins, include a wider range of external controllers as well as foot-pedal sustain support.

You may mix up to 999 audio tracks and virtually unlimited MIDI tracks. Everything is laid out in an intuitive interface that lets you quickly record, edit, arrange, and mix your music. No matter what you want to record - guitars, keyboards, vocals, live turntable scratches, CD samples, or any other sound - FL Studio Edition 6 puts it all together quickly and seamlessly.

Added plug-ins include Direct Wave advanced multi-sampler that imports Akai, SF2, Battery, Kontakt, Rex, ESX24 & WAV files, EQUO morphing graphic equalizer, Fruity Squeeze, Envelope controller, Chrome, Reeverb 2 and Delay Bank (a multi-bank delay), to name just a few.

        Comments about Image Line FL Studio 6:

        I have been using fruity loops software for about 3 years now, and I must say that I love it. Its great for recording, remixing, composing electronic music, or just plain entertaining yourself. I dont have much to say because well, theres to much. Theres a huge aray of effects, channel presets, and midi interfaces. All I have to say is that, this buy is plenty worth it.

        I just purchased this software and man I'm loving it. From Fruity slicer to BooBass and the dx10. I imported a sample I had edited on Sonar Home Studio and threw into the drim loops I had created on Fruit Loops! I'm finding new tools everyday so I'm excited!!

        This is one of the best computer based beat making softwares on the market. If you are looking for something to start you off as an amatuer, this is it for you. This software already comes with souds to get you running as soon as you download the software. This is what i use to make something quick and easy and only takes 15-20 minutes to make a beat. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to a starter

        a great tool

        Comments about Image Line FL Studio 6:

        This software is great for getting up some quick tracks on the fly. What impresses most is the sound quality. Clear, clear, clear. I personally do not use this anymore since I got Reason 3.0. Fruity Loops is great for its ease of use. You dont have to do much mixing considering how good the quality of the sounds are. Also if you do hip-hop I have a friend who has been using FL for years and he is just fantastic with the sampling. This is a good place to start if you want to make stuff with sounds that you dont have to tweek a whole lot.
