Something nice for FL Studio users
When I left Windows, one of the things I left behind was FL Studio. Not that I was an avid user of FL Studio. Nor did I manage to create anything nice with it. But I paid money for it, and because they offered free lifetime updates, I thought I would really miss it. Not anymore.
I just found (in the Add/Remove software dialog of Ubuntu no less) a program called Linux MultiMedia Studio (LMMS they call it). It offers pretty much what I had in FL Studio; that is to say, with my limited knowledge of FL Studio, I can right now do pretty much with LMMS what I could do with FL Studio – i.e. very little 🙂
But the program itself is impressive, especially when you consider that it currently stands at 0.4. There are as many instruments and effects and other features as I can comfortably handle (more in fact).
The good thing for those of you still on Windows is that there is a Windows version of the app too (available as a 15MB download), which is quite nice, because you can try it out and see what you could be having on Linux 😀
For me this brings closure on the FL studio issue. I’m glad to see an app that is shamelessly trying to match FL Studio on Linux. About time.
