The History Of Fruity Loops
In this video from Genius, we dive into the deep history of what’s known today as FL Studio (following a 2003 lawsuit by Kellogs cereal) – FruityLoops. Founded over 20 years ago by Jean-Marie Cannie and Frank Van Biesen, this DAW has continued to evolve and play a quintessential role in the music production world.
Fl Studio allowed Soulja Boy to create his hit “Crank That” during some of his first attempts at making a song.
FL Studio’s intuitive, aesthetically-pleasing interface is one aspect of the DAW that is cherished among both beginners and industry professionals. This is likely why FL Studio has got some flack over the years for not being an inherently “professional” DAW – appearing to lack the sophistication and complexity of other DAWs. However, the immense amount of hits created with FL Studio prove this idea to be trivial.
