FL Studio is the most complete virtual studio currently
available. It will play any sample file (wav), generator
(softsynth), VSTi & DXi) or midi instrument you feed it.
Image Line has released FL Studio 8, the complete music
Representing the culmination of more than 10 years of
sustained development, FL Studio 8 is now the most flexible
virtual music studio in the industry.
Chief Software Architect, Didier Dambrin has realized his
vision of creating an open-architecture virtual studio
environment where the only constraint on the users is their
own imagination. This philosophy is reflected in FL Studio
8s flexible audio and control data routing, free-form
Playlist design and interoperability with industry
standards (VST/VSTi/VST2, DXi, DXi2, Buzz, ReWire, MIDI,
MP3, WAV, OGG). Didier notes We don't try to protect our
data & come up with new formats only for marketing reasons.
We use existing standards as much as possible, and allow FL
Studio to be used as a plugin in other hostsö. In version
8, particular emphasis has been given to improved workflow
through enhanced interface design, so that ideas can be
crystallized and creativity captured.
What is FL8?
FL Studio is a fully featured, open-architecture music
creation and production environment for PC. No extra
software is required to produce any style of music, as a
complete kit of instruments and studio tools is included in
the cost of the package. With the included plugins, sounds
and tools the user can create complete songs, backing
tracks, loops or sizzling beats. Completed songs can be
saved to WAV, MP3, OGG, MIDI,
ZIP or the native project format (.FLP).
