So, you've been waiting for a Mac version of FL Studio for, like... forever, right! Well, good news. The Alpha version (pre-BETA) of FL Studio 12 for Mac is available for you to try/test.

Image Line are working on a Native OS X version of FL Studio 12. 'It is not a Windows application in disguise,' Scott from FL Studio tells us! Once you've done a merry dance in celebration, you can head over to the FL forums to test it out.

Yes, in case you missed that. This is a NATIVE (not wrapped) version for Mac OS X

Here's a couple of notes from the east page to get you excited:

Notable things that DO NOT WORK yet:

  • Drag-drop from browser tree. (workaround: right click in tree and select from popup menu)
  • VST/AU plugins (only the included FL plugins are supported)
  • Ogg-encoded wav files (we are working on it. .ogg files load fine though)
  • Using multiple monitors (so far only working on primary monitor)
  • MIDI input/output
  • Proper retina scaling (now it scales so pixels are doubled in retina mode)

The following plugins SHOULD WORK:

  • 3x Osc
  • Control Surface
  • Fruity Delay Bank
  • Fruity Flangus
  • Fruity Limiter
  • Fruity Love Philter
  • Fruity Parametric EQ 2
  • Fruity Reeverb 2
  • Fruity WaveShaper
  • Gross Beat
  • Harmor
  • Maximus
  • Patcher
  • Sytrus
