Have you emailed Image-Line??? they have great support..I'm sure they'd tell you that you just wasted $299 on a PC only program.

You gotta install windows on your mac using boot camp located in your utilities folder. Then you have to install fl studio on the same partition as windows.

Uggggggh 64 bit. Dude, do your research before you buy something, and ALWAYS demo a DAW to see if it works with your system and with you.

Have you demoed FL Studio before or any other daw for that matter? Is it possible to instead get a different daw since you are already on a Mac?

I would give Image Line a call and see if it's anyway to get your loot back,if you already made the purchase that is. You could get Logic on mac and be set.

If you coming from an mpc, then you gotta grab a copy of ableton live. With fl studio and ableton you will have the best of both worlds. Ableton is the best hands down for sample based music and fl studio is the shit for synth based tracks.

What's more amazing than the fact that he bought FL Studio for a Mac is the fact that he bought FL Studio.

I actually bought mine and was saddened to see that my friend who downloaded his off torrents can use the Slicex and other plugins in version 8 that are no longer included in the price in version 10. Bummer.

the fact that they don't include Slicex anymore is a bad move on image-line, IMO.

Yeah I understand, the simplicity of it makes it much easier to get things down but unfortunately FL Studio isn't available for Mac, you could probably get it done with some crossover application I believe. Let me look it up.

I have yet to understand why they removed it.

Lol you can't run Fruity Loops on a Mac.


Your only option is install boot camp and run windows on your mac.
