They are pretty good too, from what little I know. When Cakewalk first started distributing Fruityloops with Cake 9, I played with them a little. But then the new ACID came out, Reason came out, and soon after, Sonar 1 came out. All of the above made me not need/want to use any more third party or plugs when I didn't need to. But they do make a great tool, no doubt. -->>>

Huh? FruityLoops Studio isn't a plugin. It's a standalone program, and for many, the preferred program of its type.

Fruityloops plugged/plugs into Sonar as a DXi. I suppose it depends on your lexicon. Fruityloops can be standalone, or controlled as an instrument from a variety of hosts.

Bumping an old thread...

Ableton Live is probably the closest (also more advanced) PC equivalent to Garageband. Very similar interfaces, similar methods for composing, editing, etc.

And was mentioned by Ignacio Rodriguez back on August 13th :)


Also, if you pick up a copy of Computer Music magazine it will come with a free copy of Computer Muzys, as well as some synth and drum VST plug-ins. It's not really my favorite interface, but I use the drum plug-ins now in Tracktion (by the way, thanks DSE -- Tracktion is definitely worth the $80!). But if you're starting out and looking for a free solution (or at least $14 for a magazine plus a CDROM with samples, plug-ins, and the Muzys app), then you might try a copy of Computer Music magazine.

Although I hope Kyle has solved his problem by now :)

Spot, does it stand to "Logic" or to "Reason"? :-)

Gotta love that garageband for the price!

Yeah, for $500 you get GarageBand, and as a bonus they throw in a Mac Mini to run it on ;-)

Good quip, Mike! I'll have to remember that one. :-)
Actually, Verdeen from EWF used that same line in the M-Audio booth at NAMM. You're in good company.

As a packaging designer, I approve. It beats the little blue box that Tiffany rings come in. :-)
