When being interviewed recently by Musicradar, Image-Line's CTO and also co-founder, Jean-Marie Cannie, left a very intriguing quote at the end of the article:
Are there still no plans for Mac or Linux versions of FL Studio?
"Mac has become more important for live performance so it's become more important for us as well. We currently have a version of FL Studio that works natively on OS X, but it will need some more testing before we decide what will happen with it. You can expect to see this pretty soon..."
Coming from the CTO of Image-Line, this information is extremely interesting, and definitely brings up more questions than ever before. Will FL Studio 11 finally be able to run on Mac natively? Has Image-Line really understood the importance of Mac's in live EDM and are moving towards offering this finally?
It's been a well known fact that a lot of FL Studio competitors have software natively working on Mac, which many famous producers and artists use on a daily basis when playing live. FL Studio brings that specific disadvantage to the table since it currently only works on Windows.
There are ways to get FL Studio 11 working on Mac though, for example by using virtual box software like Parallels. This allows you to create a virtual window and run the Windows OS inside of it. From there you can install FL Studio 11 and simply use FL Studio 11 on Mac that way, however it is definitely not as convenient as it could be, and requires having to install software like Parallels to even run the program.
Anyways, we're definitely excited to see what becomes of this, Image-Line has always stated FL Studio would most likely never work on Mac since the programming was coded entirely in Windows, but it seems this could be changing after all.
