If any one of you has concluded that fruity loops is merely a "toy for students" that want to learn about sample/looped based music, you have barely scratched the surface of the program's capabilities. I have been using the program for about a year now, and I am still finding new functions that are built into this extremely logical program. I started using FL as a drum machine, but soon after realized its range of functionality is almost limitless. Throw out the pre-set sounds included with the program (as you should with any software, unless you are a paint-by-numbers musician), and soon you will find ways to take the sounds out of your head, and make them happen. Granted that image-line is yet to release a multitrack production tool (i.e. cubase, logic, sonar), and hence FL is not the all-in-one studio program that some people (steinberg - reason) are trying to attain, FL is an invaluable tool, and the ultimate way to brainstorm sounds for compubter based music.

I agree with Drone completely. I've made some of my best tunes with FL. It's far more intuitive than most software, and easy on the CPU.

FL, like other software packages (Reason, Rebirth, etc) are for people who can't play their real instruments well. To me, these type of packages are like toys for kids. I have never heard a realy good piece of music that would come from any of such software packages. They all tend to sound very mechanical and unnatural, and, sadly, very much alike, so once I hear one song, another seems like just a variation of the other, and so forth. Fortunatly, we still have good artists who do use 'real' instruments and we can enjoy their music that is unique and ear-pleasing most of the time. If you are a hobbyist and can't afford a real synth, I guess but FL or Reason and enjoy it, but don't expect to become very famous from making such a music.

Fantastic - FL 3.11 really rocks. Don't be put off that it looks like shit 'cause this is the mutt's nuts. You need to scratch under the surface and discover the control power available. Great timing too - better than midi! Just buy it!
