You can try cubase, there is a mac version for that program. Its different from FL though, maybe you should watch some youtube movies about it to get an idea. Happy, laughing

Logic is just perfect for on a Mac! Logic is almost the same as Cubase, but as the name said, it's logicHappy, laughing.

i've been lookng at logic and theres someone on ebay selling Logic Pro 8 for £175 (about €208) so I may invest in that. Would i be able to pick it up relativly easy? like i'll probably buy a book to aid me ike I do for alot of things but i take it its fairly easy?

The sound engine of logic is better than Fruity, the box version of Logic Studio is about €400,- , fruity around € 280,-. For just 120 extra you can create a proffessional sound. I use Fruity for 4 yyears now, and i have the fruity syndrome, nice ideas, sounds crappy.
In a short while I'll be using Cubase for mastering my tracks.

With a book you can't create songs in 1 day, this might take some time.
Books and forums can give you good basic information, but making tracks also depends on your own creativity and some dirty tricks you won't read in a book. Thumbs Up

See logic as a car, it is a very nice basic thing, but you want airco, cruise control and all the other extra's.
This all wil cost you some extra money, depending on what you want. But remember, cheap OR very expensive aren't always the answer to your problems.

That is another problem, because what kind of instruments give the sound you are looking for, also depending on the kind of music you want to create.

good luck!

Listen to Laidback Luke's Great Fashionista Swindle remix and try to make that statement again? Winking my eye

you can use ableton... it's an excellent software to edit & create your own music

I've seen a video of Steve Angello using Logic with vst synths and a midi keyboard. With such ease! I´d like that very much and would prefer it to FL.. And by the way, you can install os x on you pc! http://dailyapps.net/2008/03/hack-attack-dual-boot-leopard-and-windows-vista/
But anyway, i'd really think you can be far more creative with Logic or Cubase than with FL..

Edit: When i was just browsing the apple store, i noticed a program VMware Fusion 2, you can run all your Windows programs with it on you Mac!
