FL Studio, formerly known as Fruity Loops, is finally coming to Mac OS X next year. FL Studio is a DAW (digital audio workstation), basically a recording studio for your computer.

Originally released for Windows in 1998, Fruity Loops became very popular with music producers, credited for being the choice app for makers of early dubstep in the UK. However, FL Studio has never made it across to Mac OS X, despite Apple computers being the choice for many creative people. According to developer Image-Line software, FL Studio was developed in Delphi, a programming language that lacked a Mac OS X compiler until very recently.

Explaining how laborious bringing FL Studio to Mac is, the Support Team writes that users should be patient, as it may take quite a long time to be released. Until then, you can use the Windows version of FL Studio via Parallels on OS X, or dual booting your Mac with Windows. Alternatively, there are other DAW apps like Ableton and Reason.
