To celebrate two decades of the DAW formerly known as Fruity Loops, Image-Line have skipped straight from version 12 to 20. Since the original release, FL Studio has been a Windows-exclusive program. Finally after years of user complaints asking for a port to the popular Mac line-up of laptops and desktop computers, Image-Line – the company behind FL Studio, started working in 2013 on a version for said platform – FL Studio Mac!
With the recent release of FL Studio 20, the DAW of choice for many is officially available on OSX.

Also, existing FL Studio users can download the Mac version at no additional charge. So what are you waiting for?
