AlanForPresident's review"great for making your whole songs"

Image Line FL Studio 10
Fl Studio 10 is a production program that I have been using for the last few years. Well the previous versions 8 and 9. I recently upgraded to FL Studio 10 for free because I purchased the online download version with the upgrade package. Basically I paid around 40 dollars and now can upgrade to any version of FL Studio when they come out for free. This is one of the reasons why I love fl studio because I remember when I was using logic you had to pay for the upgrades!


SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I use FL Studio on my dell laptop and it runs very good. When I am using asio for all with it it eliminates any problems during playback which can become an issue if you start using too many plug ins at the same time, it gets to the point that your system just can handle it and it will make everything really slow and buggy.


OVERALL OPINION

I love the sounds of FL Studio 10 and how easy it is to use it. The program its self can be a little confusing at first I remember when I first started using fl 7 or 8. I was really having problems because I was just getting into music production and it was all new to me. But now that I understand a little better fl Studio 10 is very easy to use.
Fl Studio is great because it has a forum at fl studio.com where you can go and watch tutorials and interact with other fl studio users. It can really be helpful in case you have some questions regarding how to do something, or incase you lose your copy of fl studio you can always log onto your account and download it again with any hassle. Fl Studio provides great customer service to customers.

theaudioandvideoguy's review"upgrade to 10"

Image Line FL Studio 10
Fl Studio 10 by Image Line is the most recent version of the program, I have upgraded to this program recently and I can say that I love it just as I have always loved FL Studio because it is so easy to use and once you get the hang of the interface you can create great sounding music in NO time at all.


SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

It was really easy to install and get up and running on my dual core pc. I haven’t had any crashes yet and don’t think that I will because it seems to be running perfectly. The program itself doesn’t take up a lot of ram, but once you start getting into plug ins and different effects on the mixer track it can start to glitch a bit. that’s why it comes with free asio 4 all drivers. Asio will take care of all those glitches and give you a smooth playback. Even if you have some glitches which can happen from time to time, they wont render like that. Your final product will be smooth and wont have those glitches. The manual is really easy to understand, but if you come from another version of FL you wont need it.


OVERALL OPINION

Sounds great, there are some differences in this version and previous versions though, one thing is you can see the actual wave forms on the mixer track inserts moving in real time. That is something that really isn’t “needed” but its pretty nice to have. On the downside Im not really a fan of how they keep changing up the play list though. I am a fan of the previous versions of FL Studio’s play list.

Overall, a great program which as really swept the music world by storm. Almost everyone either has fl studio or has used it. Big cudos to the FL Studio team to continue to bring a great music production software at an affordable price. If you ever need support for FL Studio 10 or any previous version you can easily log on once you register your product on the website and they have forums to help with whatever question you might have.

Wedges2's review"A little buggy, but good. "

Image Line FL Studio 10
Fl Studio is easy to set up. Pop in the disc, or download it from Image Lines website upon purchase, install it, and authorize it. The manual is very clear and sufficient. You can google anything relating to FL studio and the manual, with the right page open, will pop up in the results. It's very helpful. The general configuration is simple, if your use to DAWs. If it's your first one it's going to take some time to get acquainted, just like any other complex software such as Pro Tools or Reason. I will say that FL Studio, to me, is the easiest DAW to learn that is out right now.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

FL STudio has some compatibility issues. Sometimes it crashes, sometimes it acts weird and makes me go find audio files that were in the project last time I opened it but now FL Studio say it can't find them. That is a real pain. Some of little glitchy things happen as well, but I don't believe any DAW is completely glitch free. I've been using ten since it came out which I believe was about a year ago. I wish FL studio would just make it 64bit so I don't have to "bridge" my plugins. I don't like doing that because it seems to make things less stable.

OVERALL OPINION

I like how easy it is to make tracks. It is just a way quicker process in FL Studio than in any other DAW I've worked with, which is all of them. I also like how simple the mixer is. It's very easy to understand and get around. I'm not a fan of the way the "send" channels are set up, but I don't really use sends that often anyway. Image Line added some nice features in FL Studio 10 with auto-save and optional wide mixer tracks, which I'm sure a lot of people liked. FL Studio also comes with a lot of great effects and plugins already it it. Such as Fruity Reverb, and Slicex.

Overall it's my favorite DAW, it has it's problems though.

The installation is done it without problem?

No worries, we install the demo, links are provided in our personal space on the site ImageLine after purchase. Then just get his regcode on his personal space, and a DoubleClick, our purchases are on, it's that simple.

Have you encountered any incompatibilities?

No.

The general configuration is easy?

Very easy, in seconds, everything is set, choosing his sound card, (native drivers or generic ASIO4ALL as for those with no audio interface)

The manual is clear and sufficient?

Manual only in English but a lot of tutorials, communities, sites (including the site of zero) are there to learn to use this software properly.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

What is the configuration of your computer? (Motherboard / CPU / RAM / hard / soundcard ..)

AmdPenom xII processor 955 black edition, quad core clocked at 3.2 Ghz
12gb ram
Associated with two SSD HDD 7200rpm
Motu 828mk3 hybrid sound card (plugged into Firewire 800)

The software runs he correctly on this configuration?

Ah yes, very well

What are its performance? (If quantifiable)

No clip, no slowing down for a multitrack recording vocals and guitar to 192kHz, with a very low buffer (5ms latency with a buffer of less than 128)

This hardware + software is stable?

Very stable, this software has turned over several platforms before it, apart from reporting the use of plugins or latency (recording or playing midi notes) for your hardware configuration, I am totally satisfied with Daw.

OVERALL OPINION

How long you use it?
Since 2004, the software has changed a lot anyway, opportunities were not as important once, but it is largely up to all other currently Daw.
Everyone thinks that we can just use FL studio for electronic music or hip hop, I assure you that no, it is possible to create music just as instrumental, acoustic, vocal, ...
Of course, if the range of plugins provided with the software you are not satisfied completely (maximus is very good by the way), it is always possible to add our VST Favorites!

What is so special that you love the most, least?

Lifetime free update = All updates or new versions of the log free for life. You buy FL 10, get 11 free. Other developers are charging a new ultra-expensive version with only bug fixes or adding a few features ... No need to draw a picture ^ ^
Moreover, contrary to popular belief, there is no difference in quality audio engine, and believe me, I tried cubase, ableton, studioOne, and I inquired on the subject, it is a legend ... The main variable sound quality is experience and mastery of the user.
In some "pros", FL Studio is still a toy for learning how to use ProTools or some other logic, well now you would be amazed what this product can do when trying to master lon a minimum. I do not quote Deadmau5 Madeon ...

Did you tried many other models before buying it?

Cubase, Ableton, presonus Studio One.

How would you rate the quality / price?
Unbeatable

With experience, you do again this choice? ...
No need, lifetime free update!!
And just wait FL Studio 11, you will see how it goes, they make us test the beta slowly and it will give ..


Note all the same, it takes some practice and a time prior to floor to clearly identify the features and realize real possibilities and powerful software.
For example, the integrated use of Edison, and Slicex Newtone to manipulate and edit our voice samples, batteries or other sources and is fully integrated native, simply make drag & drop between each section and the editing is fast and efficient !

The integration of hardware Midi was a bit tricky if it was not a standard to mackie for example, but this is ancient history since version 10.5, and version 11 with its new performance mode to make of live ;)

Multimusicos's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent ... for editing! Enthusiasts live, it's not for you ..."

Image Line FL Studio 10
The facility is clean, no problem, though somewhat long seen the (very) large sample set (after that depends on the version).

The default configuration is sufficient, then we can adapt it to their needs without problems, provided to search and read the manual ...

The plugs are available with rarely used on other programs, otherwise compatibility issue is one of the best sequencers, provided fumble in his config!

The manual is rich, contextual help especially practical, but it's not worth the Help window of Ableton ... And it is mostly in English!

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I use it on two ordis:-A new generation (Toshiba 4 cores, W7, ...)
An old-generation (Nec XP, Pentium ...)
He walks to the top of the two, however, on the second, I avoid being greedy by plugs, bugs Sinequanon constant reading, but it does not matter the software, this computer is quite dated ...
Excellent on this point, we can no longer stable!

OVERALL OPINION

I have this software for 3 months before I had the demo version to give me a hand.
The interface is fairly accessible.
It was my first sequencer, and I drooled to master.
But one gets used: FL studio, a style that's all!


Pros: The organization in Pattern
Browser customizable and ergonomic
Fully customizable display
Many Plugins and frankly good
Many possibilities! Ideal for editing

The -: unusable live (it is definitely not made for)
interface a bit clumsy ...
difficult at times to navigate between elements, which accumulate systematically

Lougarou's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" FL perfected ...."

Image Line FL Studio 10
Instalation RAS, compatibility etc ... No problem, up grade also carefree ...

Manuel ... regularly practiced for some years now but for a novice, given the "wealth" in FL now, it may be time for the grip ... but it is feasible for all concerned! It like everyone to be there ..

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

HP DV6 laptop on dual core etc ... 4 GB of RAM so no PB.
FL works very well with plain VST / VSTi same time, he is very familiar with this system (it is also made for that ...).

Stable operation no worries!

Obviously, I do not use FL Studio but it's part of my set with Studio One DAW (Presonus) and Samplitude (MAGIX).

OVERALL OPINION

I know FL since version 6 or 8, I do not know ...
Raport money very good, the envirronement FL is great and allows to arrange / compose to mastering its tracks.

The pros:
- Customizable Browser to manage the files / external and internal data (patterns, plugs parameters ...)
- Full VST / VSTi base to produce music without additions and in a wide range of musical styles.
- Automations flexible and comprehensive enough (curve types, routing controller for flexible and configurable to a large extent.
- Integration with other DAW VSTi as VSTi and REWIRE
- Export MIDI simple, simple MIXDOWN also export multitrack simple.
- Routing the mixer easy: you can create fairly complex routings, busing, multi busing, etc. .... SEND
- Configuration of tracks parameters ...

The -:
- LESS is the big mix in my opinion: I prefer by far the mixer from Presonus Studio One of which allows to identify quickly (focus) to the selection of a track of the selected pattern, for example ...
- Always mixer: system snapshot would be nice because when you see a 20-30 track it becomes difficult to manage!


Otherwise FL works great as it remains one of my favorite DAW, fast, good workflow ...

I also have Pro Tools, Ableton Live LE. I prefer fl studio by far.

most: the fact that a lot of plug-in is integrated

the least: the brand of synthesizer does not work enough with fl studio.

This software + hardware is stable?
Never had a config as perfect when using FL Studio.

OVERALL OPINION

How long have you use it?
Very .. very logtemps since version 3 and never wanted to buy the license (use demo versions) because I wanted to improve myself in the music prod and I think this version is really accomplished so I made the pitch and I took a direct FL Studio Signature Bundle license.

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
Cubase, Logic, Live, Reason.

What is so special that you like most and least?
+ How quickly push an idea of ​​melody.
+ The maturity of the program and improvements in each update.
- May be for someone who has never seen the program, it will be a little lost but after an hour it's done.

How would you rate the quality / price?
Ben the license is not that expensive and more updates for life ... So unbeatable

With experience, you do again this choice?
Without hesitation.
