FL Studio 4 Producer Edition
PC Magazine, November, 2003
FL Studio 4 Producer Edition offers a suite of powerful
software sound generators, editors, and effects,
which you control via an easy-to-use step sequencer.
It can run as a standalone application or as a VSTi
or DXi plug-in. In FL Studio, you can use the sound
generators via MIDI or via your computer's keyboard.
FL Studio boasts a spectacular bag of audio tricks.
You get analog and sample-based drum machines, analog
synths, sample players, and more. FL Studio also
offers audio recording and a built-in audio file
Like most step sequencers, FL Studio lets you program
patterns by activating buttons on a grid. You can
go deeper by calling up the Piano Roll display,
where you can edit chords and work outside the boundaries
of the grid. When you select a track, an editing
window opens, showing more mixing and sound-editing
parameters for its instrument. The internal mixer
lets you add effects to output channels, but this
is the one area where FL Studio is less than intuitive.
FL Studio lets you output your work as a WAV, MP3,
or MIDI file, among other formats. With a friendly
price, this program offers an exceptional combination
of fun and value.
