FL Studio Producer Edition v20 (previously known as FruityLoops before 2003) is a digital audio workstation (DAW) developed by the Belgian company Image-Line. FL Studio features a graphical user interface with a pattern-based[5] music sequencer. The program is available in four different editions for Microsoft Windows and macOS. Image-Line offers lifetime free updates to the program after one-time purchases, which means customers receive all future updates of the software for free after their purchase. Image-Line also develops FL Studio Mobile for AndroidiOSmacOS and Universal Windows Platform devices.

FL Studio can also be used as either a virtual studio technology (VST) or Audio Unit (AU) instrument in other audio workstation programs and also functions as a ReWire client. Image-Line also offers its own VST and AU instruments and audio applications. FL Studio has been used by numerous highly visible hip hop and EDM producers, including Porter RobinsonAlan WalkerMadeonSoulja BoySouthsideMartin GarrixAviciiImanbek and Deadmau5.

History

The first version of Fruity Loops (1.0.0) was developed by Didier Dambrin and was partially released on December 18, 1997.[12] Its official launch was in early 1998, when it was still a four-channel[13] MIDI drum machine.[14] Dambrin became Chief Software Architect for the program,[8] and it quickly underwent a series of large upgrades that made it into a popular and complex digital audio workstation.

FruityLoops was renamed “FL Studio” in mid 2003, after the threat of a lawsuit from Kellogg’s and to improve the software’s marketability.[4] Software piracy was a major issue in the company’s early days, and it took nearly 5 years for the company to earn money from users purchasing legitimate licenses.[10]

On May 22, 2018, a macOS-compatible version of FL Studio was released.[15]

Overview

Editions

FL Studio comes in several editions with different levels of functionality. The free trial version includes all of the program’s features, all plugins, and allows users to render project audio to WAVMIDIMP3, and OGG.[6] Projects saved while in demo mode, however, can only be opened once FL Studio and its plugins have been registered. Also, instrument presets cannot be saved and the audio output of some instruments will cut out momentarily every few minutes until the program and its plugins have been registered.[16]

Fruity Edition

The Fruity Edition allows users to access the playlist, piano roll, and event automation features, which allow for complex and lengthy arranging and sequencing. There is also VST/ReWire support so that FL Studio can be an instrument in other hosts such as Cubase, Sonic Solutions, and Logic. As of version 20.8.3, this edition includes 82 instruments and effects; it does not support audio recording and the use of audio clips.[17]

Producer Edition

The Producer Edition includes all of the features of the Fruity Edition, as well as full recording for internal and external audio and post-production tools. It allows for hand-drawing point and curve based splines (referred to as “automation clips”). Plugins include Edison, Slicex (loop slicer and re-arranger), Sytrus, Maximus, Vocodex and Synthmaker. It also allows for waveform viewing of audio clips and the ability to add cue points.

Signature Bundle

This edition includes the Producer Edition as well as a series of plugins such as the Fruity Video Player, DirectWave Sampler, Harmless, NewTone, Pitcher, Gross Beat and the Hardcore Guitar Effects Suite

All Plugins Edition

The All Plugins Edition includes the Signature Bundle along with extra plugins, particularly synthesizers.

Mobile

On June 21, 2011, Image-Line released FL Studio Mobile for iOS and in April 2013 for Android. Both support the ability to create multi-track projects on mobile devices including iPod TouchesiPhonesiPads,[9] Android 2.3.3 and higher smartphones and tablets.

Groove

On September 2, 2013, a new standalone app for Windows 8 was released. It is a Groovebox-style application optimised for touch-based music creation.[19]

System requirements

FL Studio 20 works on Windows 7/8/10 (32-bit or 64-bit versions) or on macOS 10.13.[7] FL Studio requires a 2 GHz AMD or Intel Pentium 3 CPU with full SSE1 support. It requires 2 GB of free disk space and 4 GB of RAM is recommended.[7] The website states that “the more powerful your CPU, the more instruments and FX you can run.”[20]

FL Studio processes audio using an internal 32-bit floating point engine. It supports sampling rates up to 192 kHz using either WDM– or ASIO-enabled drivers.

Program features

  • Version 9.0 introduced support for multi-core effects processing and improved support for multi-core instrument processing.[21]
  • Version 10.0, released on March 29, 2011, included a new project browser, fixed some bugs, and smoothed envelope points. It also introduced Patcher, a modular workflow environment capable of chaining together an unlimited number of instruments and effects.[22]
  • Version 11.0, released on April 19, 2013, included multi-touch support, improved tempo automation, new plugins such as BassDrum, GMS, Effector, Patcher, and new piano roll features (VFX Key Mapper, VFX Color Mapper).[23]
  • Version 12.0, released on April 22, 2015, added a new vectorial UI, updated plugins, multi-touch support, a redesigned mixer, improved 32 and 64 bit plugin support and improved file management.[24]
  • Version 20.0, released on May 22, 2018, skipped versions 13 to 19 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the program. It introduced native macOS support, multiple time-signatures, MIDI conversion to audio, unlimited playlist arrangements, improved plugin delay compensation, the return of the step sequencer graph editor, In-situ rendering (“freezing”), and other improvements.[25]

The mixer interface allows for any number of channel configurations. This allows mixing in 2.1, 5.1, or 7.1 surround sound, as long as the output hardware interface has an equivalent number of outputs. The mixer also supports audio-in, enabling FL Studio to record multitrack audio.
