Dave Reed of Tritonal learned how to produce music using FL Studio (back when it was called Fruity Loops). He says "I completely fell in love with FL Studio when I was introduced to it by a friend of mine. I loved the fact that even in the demo mode, I could at least keep my project window open all day and all night and actually mix down what I made! No more having to record to tapes YAY! From there on out, FL Studio became the very vein to my musical personality. As I was producing in it, I became inspired and remained inspired. It was a pure dream coming true to me! Into many years of using this software, I had a full out artist album I was working on to pitch to Armada. Through this, I learned many of the terminologies, techniques, tricks and sound design structures that I took with me into many other DAWs (Digital Audio Workstation). Even today, FL Studio has been the powerhouse behind many of our productions as Tritonal and remains a go-to production tool!"more
Talking about his love for FL Studio 11 and its stock synths, Madeon says "The FL synths - things like Harmless and Harmor - are as good as anything else in the marketplace. The audio editing power is mindbogglingly brilliant. I'm not a fan of Windows computers but I use them because of FL Studio." "FL 11 is even more powerful. One of the songs I've been working on needed 150 tracks of music, so I rang FL up and said, 'Guys, I need more tracks, please.'"more
Seven Lions produces using Image Line's FL Studio DAW (in a tweet he has mentioned using version 10). In an interview, he mentions having a go-to template in FL to streamline the music making process. He also advocates setting up samples and sounds you frequently use. For instance, "Spend some time making a fat drum kit that you are in love with."more
"I’m using everything really. The thing about FL Studio is the workflow in it is so open ended. I love that people think of it like a toy. There are a bunch of professional producers that look at it as some kid’s toy, my first DAW. But, when you say to them, ‘Hey, have you ever seen this additive synth, Harmor?’ And they say, ‘Oh, I can do that in Massive.’ ‘Oh really?’ So I’ll show them drawing your own filters and spectral waiting of a phaser, mono gliding inside a monophonic chord, note data that’s not a note... It actually makes people that work in Logic and Ableton angry because you can do so much stuff in FL Studio that you can’t do in those two programs. It’s actually crazy! For example, in FL Studio you can take a kick drum or LFO and modulate the master clock. I mean, why you would want to, I don’t know. It’s so open ended that it’s like working with a modular synthesizer but in DAW form. Honestly, in my humble opinion, FL Studio is the most open-ended, incredible DAW that has ever been made. I don’t know how you can top that. Those guys pay me nothing. In fact, I’m constantly giving them feature suggestions to tame it if you will. FL Studio is mind boggling awesome. I love what Image Line are doing and really believe in it!"more
Hudson Mohawke posts a tweet making reference to him using FL Studio. He says, "Nerd q, need sum1 who knows about writing midi protocol stuff for mcu controller, n knows about fl studio. Doth such a supreme dweeb exist?" From a Complex interview: "Part of the reason why Lunice and HudMo's styles mesh so well is because they both craft beats Fruity Loops. "That makes it easier for us to work together," Lunice says." (source http://www.complex.com/music/2012/09/tnght-breaks-down-their-ep-tnght/)more
Paris Blohm's DAW of choice features prominently in this photo from Facebook. Interestingly, shortly after posting this photo, Paris adds a comment: "[...]I don't care what DAW you use, if u can make something good pounding on pots n pans then use that. The final result is what matters. /end"more
Steve Duda appears in the Power Users list on Image-Lines's website. The version of FL Studio he uses is not specified, but he says positive things about it: "I use FL for software testing - it is quick to launch and debugger-friendly..." "FL is not only the fastest program to start up, it's also the fastest environment to take a musical idea from your head to your speakers..." "I have a particular fondess for the FL FormulaController/Peak Controller, VSTi/VST FX hosting, ASIO multiple outputs, and the beloved FruitySlicer!"

I'm a full-time composer and producer since I graduated from college in 2009. I got my start in computer-based music at OverClocked ReMix (http://www.ocremix.org/), a website devoted to arrangements of video game music. I've released over 30 game remixes and I'm still very active in the community; I even met my wife Jillian Aversa there! You may know her better as the voice of "Just Hold On" (the FL9 Newstuff.flp.) As an electronic artist, I enjoy working in tons of styles, from atmospheric drum n' bass to progressive trance and dubstep. By the end of 2011 I'll have eight original albums out, all produced entirely in FL Studio.more
In this Facebook picture, The Living Tombstone shows us an upcoming song of his and the logo for FL Studio can clearly be seen on screen. The interface is in the style of version 10/11, judging by the date of this picture we can assume it is version 11. However the exact edition cannot be determined so we may assume that Tombstone uses FL 11 Producer Edition since it is very common with producersmore

I literally bought this a week ago, so haven't had a lot of time to dissect every element of it, but from what I've seen so far its great and less CPU heavy than what I used before, there's also LOADS of fun plugins to play with
Fl Studio has a great work flow and is super easy to use. It's great if you want to get into producing and you want to learn the fundamentals without having to learn how to use an over-complicated DAW as well
For the last 4 years I've used logic 9 then switched to Ableton Live 9 and I've dabbled in Studio One. I know each program inside out and yet I've been using FL for about 2 months as I've got a new Windows Laptop and I want to keep the RAM down plus my budget is low at the moment. I have to say FL studio is highly under-rated, its so much more fun than any DAW I've played around in and I've made the best music I've made in ages. My friends laugh it off when I tell them I'm producing in FL and they've spent a bomb on Ableton or Pro Tools. Jokes on them.
With lifetime updates for this DAW along with a rather brilliant product, I am still very happy with FL Studio as I was back in the day with Fruity Loops 3 or was it 2.5.7?! By far the simplest set of tools I have used to create electronic based music and preform well even when mixing in live elements into the production.
I suppose to each their own, But I simply cannot understand why this DAW is not respected by some. The learning curve on this is very straight forward to the point that I began creating arrangements right away. I first started using FL Studio when I downloaded the fully functional demo of FL 3 all those years ago, And in doing so, I realized that I had no need for another daw so I made the purchase and I never looked back or even once had any major technical problem with the software. In terms of price and lifetime free updates it's simply amazing.
I was given this by a friend, and I'll use it to come up with quick demos and such. I'm not a big fan of the UI at all, and the loop based setup doesn't really lend itself to my style of music, but for quick demos and more industrial tracks it's can get the job done. To be honest, I'm a much bigger fan of the VSTs that are included in it than FL Studio itself - if I could get the synth engines included in it (like Harmor, Syrtus, etc) imported into Cubase without having to run FL along side it, I'd be a happy camper.
I've tried just about every DAW that is professionally used other than FL, and after spending plenty of time with all of them, FL studio was the one that won my attention the most. Although it isn't simple, it just feels comfortable. I can easily get ideas down and then the process just starts to flow. It never worked like that for me on any other DAW.
FL Studio was the very first music production software I stumbled across back in early 2004. I've tried other DAWs out there and none of them just fit my expectations in the way that FL Studio has!
There is nothing easier than Valium, the program has captured my musical ear and soul, all I think about, I write in the FL , it is through him I can share with people of their creativity.
