Image-Line Software

FL Studio (formerly known as FruityLoops) is a digital audio workstation developed by the Belgian company Image-Line. FL Studio features a graphical user interface based on a pattern-based music sequencer and is, as of 2014, one of the most used digital audio workstations worldwide. The program is available in three different editions for Microsoft Windows, including Fruity Edition, Producer Edition, and the Signature Bundle. Image-Line offers lifetime free updates to the program, which means customers receive all future updates of the software for free. Image-Line also develops FL Studio Mobile for iPod Touch, iPhone,iPad and Android devices.

FL Studio can be used as a VST instrument in other audio workstation programs and also functions as a ReWire client. Image-Line also offers other VST instruments and audio applications. FL Studio is used by electronic musicians and DJs such as Afrojack, Avicii, and 9th Wonder.

Version 12 is the newest version of FL Studio. It added a new UI design, updated plugins, multi-touch support, redesigned mixer, improved 32 & 64 bit plugin support and improved file management. Version 11, Introduced in April 2013, it 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 ).

Version 10, introduced on March 29, 2011, included a new project browser, fixed some bugs, and smoothed envelope points. It also introduced a patcher.

Version 9 introduced support for multi-core effects processing and improved support for multi-core instrument processing.

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.

FL Studio supports time stretching/pitch shifting, beat slicing, chopping, and editing of audio, and as of version 8 it can record up to 64 simultaneous audio tracks.  Other key features include a digital piano roll. Audio can be imported or exported as WAV, MP3, OGG, MIDI, ZIP, or the native project format with an .FLP filename extension.

The demo is very functional, even allowing users to save their compositions for opening in the registered version, and mix their tracks to any of the popular formats.
