FL Studio is a powerful software solution that allows the creation of songs and loops using professional tools such as state of the art mixers, equalizers, integrated instruments and more.
Seamless setup, yet pretty overwhelming GUI
Although it is such powerful software, it is quite easy to install. It takes a while, but only because it has to copy a lot of instruments and samples.
Less experienced users or those who have never worked with a similar program before might not have an easy time during the first use of FL Studio. It consists of a myriad of buttons corresponding to the multiple options available, which might seem a bit too much.
Nonetheless, comprehensive Help contents are enclosed, so that, in time, beginners can also learn how to handle it.
Use a virtual piano and support for plugins
While running FL Studio in full screen, this application encompasses a lot of functions on the left side of the screen, while the right side is exclusively used for mixing the uploaded tune. A virtual piano is also included so that you can be sure you can create the song or effect you had stuck in your head.
Plugins can be added for improved functionality, although the software comes with almost everything one might need for taking the first steps as a beginner, such as instruments, mixers, special effects, filters, and many other tools.
