From FruityLoops 3 to FL Studio 20

"From FruityLoops 3 to FL Studio 20"

Today I happened to know that Image-Line had rolled out FL Studio 20 for macOS, skipping versions 13 to 19 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the enterprise.

I started to use FL Studio from 2001, which was then known as FruityLoops 3. It was the first digital audio workstation I came into contact with. It later became so deeply a part of my creations that the way I made music radically changed.

I was too young to own a credit card way back when. As such, I relied on a few cracked versions of the software to support my hobby until I switched to macOS years later. As much as I had expected a macOS version, Image-Line did not unveil it until May 22, 2018, when I had been away from Windows for almost a decade.

It was a serendipitous and wonderful encounter with Image-Line’s FruityLoops. Today I showed my belated support by purchasing my own license (Producer Edition + Signature Bundle).

It probably means that I could be prolific songwriting-wise again.
