Not looking to get flamed, hoping for serious mature responses. The basic rundown is of course I am a mac user and I'm looking for a program with which I can produce beats. I'm fully aware of garage band and I'm not interested in using it. Now I'm not entirely sure why this program gets such a bad rap (most likely because artists like Soulja Boy are known for using it) but despite what you may have heard Fruity Loops is actually a good program. I did a google search and I'm having trouble finding it for mac for free, I'm also more than willing to use a similar program if you guys have any information on those too. I'm less interested in making beats than in the lyrics I just need a program that will aid me in getting a beat down quick so I know what I'm working with. So if you guys could help me out it would be greatly appreciated, any and all suggestions accepted smile

failure is right... you can do that.. or you could just use garage band or reason. Or you can go ahead and get logic pro 8. Theres a plug in called ultra beat witch is basically set up just like fruity loops to make cadances and drums really easy..

I have a mac and use Ableton Live. It's the best program out imo. Very easy to use and when you get the hang of it, it's amazing.

Thanks for the responses, I tried Pro Tools but for whatever reason it wasn't working, I think I'm going to try the ableton live program. But I'm going to look into logic too.

^Did you check out cubase 5? That shit looks so crazy, wish I had cash for that.

Also the new Ableton looks crazy too.

Ive been using FL for quite some time, and after i got a new macbook, ive always wanted to switch mobile. I'd have to get windows before being able to use fl. Does anyone else use fl on a mac? I've tried it once on a friend's, the response timing was horrible. Maybe it was the computer, but i wanna see if this seems to be a norm to mac users.

reason and protools for me. reason is easy to learn but still allows for a lot of room to grow and up the complexity of your beats/songs
