Fruity Loops for Mac
So here’s the deal. Fruity Loops for Mac doesn’t actually exist. They only have a Windows version at the moment which seems strange because Mac is supposed to be the choice for creativity and all the cool stuff.
But boo hoo there’s no Fruity Loops studio for Mac. To be honest I could give a damn, because here’s the thing-
Fruity Loops is for wimps anyway. Just to make sure you read that…
Now there’s a bunch of alternatives you can use. Plenty of which work for the Mac. And no matter what tool you’re using what it all comes down to is digital music production – and here’s the thing about that.
Everyone (and I do mean everyone) who tries it falls into one of two camps.
Either you try it, make some crap music and give up. And this is usually the case with tools like Fruity Loops.
Or you make something completely different. You discover a talent you never knew you had. Even if you’ve never played an instrument before you learn to create music people actually want to listen to. That’s the point at the end of the day, right?
And part of this comes down to the person (although it’s a lot easier than you might think) and part of it comes down to the software (or DAW) you use.
But I’ll get into why I think Fruity Loops is for wimps in a moment. I just want you to understand how awesome this kind of thing can be with the right tools. I certainly don’t want to put you off the idea completely.
Years ago making music like this was for the elite. You needed a lot of money to build up the entire studio, you needed to buy a lot of instruments and equipment and you certainly had to spend years learning how to play all the instruments you wanted. And even after all that you had no guarantees because you were limited in so many ways.
Things like Fruity Loops software (and the better alternatives) allow you to compete with the big dogs straight from your own Mac. You don’t need any expensive equipment or even any previous musical talent. You have complete access (and complete freedom) to digitally produce music at a studio grade level.
And a lot of people don’t like this. It lowers the barriers and allows anyone to compete and at the end of the day they think who are we to have access to this kind of thing. And I get a kick out of that.
I also get a kick out of making music.
Partly because it’s fun. I’m always excited when I find something new I can work with to make a new track after humming a few random bars.
And partly because it can also be profitable. The Internet has done more than just allowed us to download tools like a Fruity Loops for Mac alternative – it also allows us to distribute this music.
That’s right – I’m talking about people actually listening to the music you make.
With digital music production you can actually (pretty easily) create yourself a fan base online. People who listen to your music while you actually make money from creating something. Hey it beats a boring day job.
But even if you want to just mess around or practice the Piano without having to actually own a Piano – something like this can unlock something inside you. Everyone, at some point in their lives, tends to find at least one thing they have a knack for. Something they’re a natural at and you’d be surprised how many people find this with digital music production.
Here’s the thing – it can actually be really, really easy. But at the same time it’s that impressive people tend to just assume we’re talking rocket science here.
You don’t need to be able to play one instrument, let alone 20, and with a little practice you can be making some really good stuff. And I’d love to show you how to make it (and promote it) but first I want you to understand why I think it’s a good thing there is no Fruity Loops for Mac.
Why I think Fruity Loops is for wimps…
And what the best alternative is to get started.
