Image-Line, the developers of FL Studio, formerly known as Fruity Loops, has confirmed they’re developing a native version for Mac OS X.
The development was revealed through FL Studio’s knowledge base and brought to our attention by Attack Magazine.
The knowledge base states:
“A while back we started by testing a FL Studio Mac OS X BETA (Crossover Wrapped) version, with direct installation on Mac OS X. This was promising but it was still just a Windows program, wrapped by CrossOver, running on OS X. The interest in the wrapped beta, and the problems we faced supporting 3rd party VST plugins in it, lead the team to start work on porting our Windows-only VST plugins – Edison, Gross Beat, Harmless, Harmor, Maximus, Ogun, Slicex, Sytrus, Vocodex to OS X native VST format.”
“The OS X VST plugin testing, was in fact, the stealthy beginnings of FL Studio native OS X compatibility development. These VST plugins use the exact same code-base as FL Studio itself, and if we could get these working to spec on OS X, then FL Studio would likely follow soon after.”
FL Studio is a popular digital audio workstation used by hip-hop producers such as Boi-1da, Hit-Boy, Jahlil Beats, Alex da Kid, Lex Luger, and Soulja Boy, and EDM producers such as Avicii, Afrojack, Martin Garrix, and Ummet Ozcan.
Image-Line hasn’t announced a release date but Attack Magazine believes it could be in 2015.
Here’s a video of Martin Garrix explaining how he produced “Animals”:
