FL Studio (Fruity Loops) for Linux


Hi all,

Wanted to quickly ask whether anybody knows how to make FL Studio (fruity loops) to work on Linux? Or, alternatively, if there is a similar program available for Linux (sequencer prog able to handle wav and ds)? And maybe even TS404?

All help is highly appreciated since FL is the very program preventing me switching away completely from Windows.

Thanks,

p_finn

Hi.

You might be able to get FL running under WINE (i don't see any major obstacles, but I've not tried my self).

I've been waiting with baited breath for an application similar to Fruity Loops to come out for Linux for a while now. I'd be very interested to hear if you do get it running (I'm not willing to pay for FL until I hear that it can be run under Linux/WINE).

Audacity can use VST instruments, and there's a couple of apps which do things like drum layouts for Linux, but there's nothing as powerful as Fruity Loops available for Linux at the moment.

You might want to have a look at Rosegarden (http://www.rosegardenmusic.com/), but it's most probably not *quite* what you're looking for.

Dave.

Hi Dave,

Thanks for your reply. I did try to install FL using Crossover Office but it did not work. Maybe WINE would do it but because CO failed I am a bit doubtful. I'll try anyways and let you know.

I checked Rosegarden already earlier and obviously it is not bad program but, as you said, it is not quite what I am looking for.

Cheers,

p_finn

Hi Dave,

I tried with WINE without any success. Looks like a just have keep looking for a native Linux replacement for FL. Maybe Muse or DeMuDi?

Cheers,
