Would you all please stop talking about fruity loops so much. This software from heaven will create the next generation of million selling producers. As we say on the caribbean I make that thing cry. So all those people flshing their large and expensive tools will come to bow down to the fruity loopers soon!! peace

I think fruity loops really rocks. It is so easy to lay a good track down. The only thing that i really dont like about it is the fact thatwhen you start using up more tracks on the playlist, Every thing will pause or the mouse cursor will disappear or somthing. But over all i think its a great program. I wish it had a mixer built into the program too so you can get a more clear final copy of your track

I think Fruityloops is a very fast and intuitive sketchpad to lay down your ideas in rough tracks quickly and easily. You can have a real catchy techno or hiphop/dub-beat going in very little time. When you've got a musical idea, Fruityloops helps you with not losing it. BUT: the program has it's drawbacks (like any software). The main drawback is it's inability to give the song a personally defined groove. Anyone who's making music comes to the point that you think: "Shit, this beat is really complex but still not 'catchy' enough in a way. I just can't figure out what's missing." Changes are that a real groove is missing. For that you really have to use a more complex sequencer like Logic or Cubase. I bought Logic some weeks ago. When I started using the Hyper Editor I was blown away. The level of detail that you can put in the beats is awesome! A real groove and music like drum & bass can be made with it. With Fruityloops that's VERY hard, unless you're using sample shots of complete drum rhythms (made by another sequencer like an MPC or Logic...). So for me, I still use Fruityloops sometimes for some basic ideas. But then the track gets (manually) converterted to Logic and I finish it there. In Logic I have professional effects, good MIDI support, VST-instruments, groove tepmlates, etc. etc. But ofcourse it costs a lot more too...

I just finished an album made entirely with Fruity Loops, and the more I learn the program, the better it gets. Once you get the hang of tweaking the effects plugins, the sounds can be really impressive. Its probably not up to the par of really expensive hardware, but its damn close a whole lot cheaper.

We had a young artist come into the studio with only a laptop last week. We had our first taste of FruityLoops and I must say we were quite impressed. We had passed it off as a toyish little program, but the tracks this kid layed down with it were truly awesome! We're considering ordering it in so we can try it out in the studio setting.
I DL'd the demo last night and already am hooked on it. Song writing is easy (especially with a vast sample library & SoundForge) and when inspiration hits you can lay it down quickly and painlessly.
Good price too, but software interfaces drive me crazy sometimes and I'm still a hardware user at heart...
