FINALLY! FL STUDIO IN MAC OS X!

Recommended Posts

Btw, to get this apple symbol: , type shift+alt+k. you can only see it in mac os x.

 

So anyway!

 

I finally got FL Studio 8 (Demo) to work in Mac with crossover. It was really simple, i tryed running it with a win2000 bottle, but it didnt work so i used these:

 

Crossover 7

winxp bottle

FL Studio 8 Demo Installer (.exe)

 

And it just worked!

 

Theyr wer a few problems like the random "error 1400(or 1600) cannot read from access" or something like that.

 

But it works!

 

I havent tested ASIO4All v2, but I'm think that wont work because it uses a windows type driver to build off of, or something :huh:

 

The point is, it works! And not like VMware Fusion speed, but full native speed!

 

yay!!! now i have elimaneted a reason to still use windows. woohoo! On to making more techno and club loops!

 

:yoji:

Hi all!

Just for the record, I have Fl studio 8 running on LEO4ALL V2!!!

 

Now to figure out how to import my license (.reg file) to get the full version running...

 

It uses the sound device you set by default in the OSX preferences - I hope to add an extra interface so I can stream audio between fruity and protools :thumbsup_anim:

 

Thanks Daftpunk for the hint! I would never have dreamed to see the day!

use RUN COMMAND from Crossover icon : locate Regedit.exe in your Bottle then select RUN

 

then simply import .reg file !!!!!

i guess just a .reg file isn't enough. i think there are 2 files to overwrite... but you have to find them by yourself... :s

I'm currently running Fruity Loops on a Mac but there is a huge problem in that I seem to have no midi functionality. FL sees the controllers, but sees no messages apparently. Anyone have any ideas?

On my new computers. Fl studio runs at fullspeed within parallels. 8 core and 8 GB ram does that

 

 

What are you running with 8 cores?
