FL Studio Comes To Mac

After years as a PC-only application, FL Studio is finally coming to Mac. While there were previously workarounds to get FL studio on a Mac, such as installing Boot Camp to run Windows or a beta version powered by Codeweavers CrossOver software, the application was never native to OS X. However, producers the world over can rejoice now that it’s been announced a fully-fledged Mac version of FL Studio 12 will be available sometime next year.

The company behind FL Studio, Image-Line, said in a statement posted to Attack Magazine that their software was written in such a way that it was difficult to break away from Windows before now. An Mac OSX compiler for Delphi, the programming language FL Studio was developed in, only recently appeared; before that, they would have had to port all of the code to another language. “We never thought that was a good idea,” the statement reads, “and that’s why we never did it before. But, things have changed, so let’s call this progress.” Much of the job now is switching over “operating system dependent calls” from the Windows API to Mac, which Image-Line cautions is quite time consuming.

Regarding the Windows version, Image-Line says the Mac project won’t have any impact. “No, the team working on the conversion to OS X is completely separate from the Windows development team. They talk, but don’t share any bodies that we know of, so it’s business as usual on the Microsoft side of things. Bill Gates sends his regards BTW.”
