FL Studio is a freeware application that can be used in order to create music. When the existing music is not enough anymore and users want to try their skills, such a tool provides a great helping hand. There are some other competitors in this market and the tool tries to be in the top of the charts, and being free is a good advantage. The installation is a simple process but it will take a while as there are a lot of sound files that must be added to the tool’s database.
These sounds are the building blocks of music creation and they can be used in order to create unique songs, or they can be added on already existing songs in order to remix them, for example. The tool might seem more suited for professional users but if a person reads the guides that are provided in the Help section, he should be prepared to create his own songs within a couple of minutes. The interface contains a lot of different areas and they should be studied with care in order for the user to understand everything that can be achieved with the provided tools.
The effects are not grouped in the most logical way and they do not have their names set up, but the definitions are quite intuitive and the user should be able to find the suited sounds within the database, that is quite large. There are various options that can be used, such as adding effects to the sounds. Different equalizers are also available and after the job is done, the user can easily export the output file to a MP3. Here, he has the possibility to choose between different options regarding the bit rate and other factors. Overall, the tool is suited for both professional and amateur users.
