FL Studio Groove has quickly become one of the most highly rated music applications for Windows 8. It features a 10 pad sample-based drum machine and 5 polyphonic synth channels so users can compose, arrange, edit, mix and perform professional quality music.

Synthesizers: FL Studio Groove ships with a wide range of bass, keys, lead, pad, sfx and synth sounds. The flexible dual-oscillator, wave-shape driven, design with filters, 3 envelopes and LFO architecture will ensure users can create fresh and unique sounds for years to come.

Keyboard: Take control over the synthesizers with FL Studio Groove's two-tier touch keyboard, perfect for playing chords and melodies. Velocity is enabled through vertical position on the keys.

Drums & percussion: The 10 drum-pads feature velocity-through-position to allow users to play with feeling and get the right groove. Each pad can layer up two samples for complex sample mash-ups. A comprehensive library of percussion samples is including kicks, snares, toms, hats, cymbals, sfx and more.

Effects: Classic and modern effects are available including a Bit Crusher (for lo-fi gritty sounds), Flanger & Phaser (to create complex stereo washes and spacey effects), Filters (low, high pass & vowel-voice simulation), Delay (echoes), Reverb (to simulate the sound of large halls through to tight spaces), Panning and Ring modulation (creating screaming-feedback type sounds).

Sequencing: After recording a performance FL Studio Groove's touch-optimized editing features will help users to get the job done with minimal fuss. Users can edit in all the musical parts from scratch here also. The Piano-roll allows note entry and step-entry for percussion tracks. Finally, FL Studio Groove will record the movement of almost any knob or control with the Automation Editor.
