Image Line has announced FL Studio Mobile – a new FL Studio, designed for creating multi-track projects on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch:
FL Studio mobile will allow you to create complete multi-track projects on your i.Pod, i.Phone or i.Pad and, if you want, load mobile projects into FL Studio and take them to the next level.
I guess dreams do come true, who needs pesky things like keyboards, guitars, turntables, vinyl, and samplers when you can now use your trusty iPhone to loop up that lo fi sample from youtube to make some garbage and parade it out to the world disguised as music. It’s beats on the go for people who just don’t have the time to create music. This app is just a poorly thought out idea. If you think hip hop is over saturated now, wait until people start rocking the i phone fruity loops app son! The one positive we all can take from this… That guy you see trying to make beats on the bus is never gonna get off that bus with this formula. Leave the fruity loops app alone people. Take some pride in what you do, the easiest, most accessible, and most efficient way does not always get the desired results.
Never lose that idea again. Get it down and happening wherever you are.
