There's nothing as easy as FL Studio in linux. but if you combine some of the applications, you can have pretty much same advantages.


  • LMMS/Guitarix/zynaddsubfx for creating music tracks.
  • Hydrogen for creating Drum loops
  • Ardour for Mixing
  • Jack for connecting all these together

These tools are very much powerful specially Ardour is a mature project. pretty much replaces Fl studio for me.

you can find many good video tutorial in Youtube to start up.

Happy music making.

You can use LMMS for music. For drumbeats, I'd recommend Hydrogen.

If you go into software center and install the newest version of Wine, you can install FL Studios 10 and 11. During the installation skip installing asio drivers. I use FL Studio 10 on Ubuntu 12.04 w/Wine.
