to anyone who owns a version of Fruity Loops Studio (recently featured in Kyle's software lesson):

what version to you have? there are several. after seeing how easy it seems (thanks to kyle) i'm considering buying the program. i just want it to create drum loops like how kyle did. would Fruity Loops Express be ok? or should i get "Fruity Loops" edition? hahaha. i tried to figure it out myself but was a bit lost on the feature comparison chart. i don't know exactly what all the features mean.

by the by, i think i speak for all GMC students by saying that FL software lesson was AWESOME! recording software is a confusing and unfamilar territory for many of us, but with tutorials as intuitive as that i feel like any of us, no matter how untech savy, can learn how to make great music.

maybe some other instructors could look into doing software tutorials for other programs? (audacity / garageband / etc)

EDIT: sorry if i sound confusing. what i'm trying to find out is what FEATURE FILLED VERSION i need to get. i'm stuck trying to figure out the difference between express / fruity loops / producer / XXL editions... not on using FL 6 or FL 7.

Good question. I have Fruity Loops version 6.0 Producer Edition.

A good place to start is with the trial. I don't think it limits you too much on what you can do.

I use producer edition because I use a lot of synthesizers and record using ASIO and the such. If you're looking to just make drum loops and use a few synths...go for the cheapest version.

Don't forget that you can always export to .wav or .mp3 and edit using a different audio program.

By the way...if you have questions geared towards specific instructors...be sure to let them know that you created the topic wink.gif

Yes, the Loops is nice for sampling and MIDI use, but not that great with audio.

It's good to make beats and synthesized sounds. I mix and record in Sony Acid Pro though.

Acid Pro is better for audio, but not that good for MIDI and quantitizing. I use to use acid a lot, now only use vegas from the same family. SOny has some interesting good qualities, like scrolling the mousewheel to zoom. Man I love that one smile.gif
