FL Studio is a digital audio workstation (DAW) that is an all-in-one music production platform. It allows anyone with a laptop, iPad, or smartphone to create music using a small selection of outboard devices. This software includes a full-fledged recording environment where you can capture vocals, live instruments, and digital instruments as high-fidelity audio or midi tracks. Once you’ve recorded them, you can chop, scale, slice, and edit them in virtually any way imaginable. FL Studio is a powerful tool for producing synth- and beat-heavy genres like EDM and hip hop. Its visually intuitive beat-making software includes large sample libraries, and lets beginners produce high-quality tracks in little time. The same goes for its synth capabilities, including a wide array of different synthesizer banks.
