not a fan of the WIP's i've seen so far, but im hoping it'll be better in the end.
was hoping that something so drastic would encourage a bolder overhaul tbh (losing the oldschool blue/green tint would be nice!)

I kind of like what they did with the windows8 touch version 'FL Groove'

might just be me though.. ;)

Yeah, FL Studio Groove looks awesome compared to the Mobile version.

FL Studio for Mac had to happen one day. Plenty of Mac Musicians out there.

The Mobile version is just another app reskinned and with .flp export, no?

There are probably tons of Mac users among their customers, most of which switched to Mac during the past decade and miss FL.

Not surprised if there were few beta testers, though. You'd have to want to use a PC version on your Mac. I downloaded it and installed it, ran it for 30 minutes and remembered old times, then uninstalled it and wished for a pure Mac version. :party:

Same here - I was excited to try the beta and then realized that it was unlikely to ever work well enough to be usable. Props to IL for trying though.

That would make sense, though. It's very likely the vast majority of current Mac users have always been on that platform, so FL Studio just isn't on their radar. There are tons of audio professionals on the Mac though, so this is a good long term business move for Image-Line. I think it'll pay off in the long run.

Agree, never thought I would see the day.... but I am thrilled.....

I use Studio One, like it .... but FL has a special place.... Having it run native on my computer would be awesome.... dare I say it.... I would even pay a little for the update :)

To have FL with Maschine would be very rad, hip and cool....

It's just how they are.. remember how long they fought against all things latency and refused to make any kind of latency compensation? Now they have that too..

It's just how they operate. :lol:

Ha, yes it is. This statement in their kbase is/was a much softer No than years past:

Just getting all this system dependent code from Deckadance (which was created more or less with porting in mind) and replacing it with bi-platform versions took almost 6 months. So we could multiply this by 50 for FL Studio with well over 1 million lines of code.


Delphi supporting Mac was revealed earlier this year so they must have had this in the works for awhile if JMC thinks a beta may be possible by the end of the year.

Wow… Although I haven't used it in years, I've always respected the hell out of them for continuing to honor my license. And Ive always thought it was a beautifully designed program with a fantastic interface… I don't mind the black myself. So, it would be pretty cool to go full circle with FL as I joined KVR 12 years ago after I purchased Fruity to get some tips…
