A larger, resizable mixer is chief among its many upgrades.

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.

This thing is great, you can easily make basic drum beats if you don't have the equipment to record a drum set..and you can make some crazy beats with all the other effects! It takes a little learning, but nothing hard and you can easily put the FL files into any other recording program(PC or Mac) to add into your songs...overall, great buy.


No Fruity Loops out of this software

By DJ Hectikal

from Undisclosed

I bought this software a little while ago, after messing around with the demo version of FL3, to get starting on production for another album. So far I've cranked out some interesting and catchty loops. With my Akai MPD-16 the production of loops is simple and if I have a good idea down in my head I can have a loop done in a matter of 10 minutes or so. It was easy to load and get working right after I loaded it. The price is good and it has a great number of features. I would recommend this to anyone who needs to make some quick, good sounding loops, at a low price.
