I need a good alternative.
Thanks in advance.
I am not totally sure what exactly Fruitsy Loops does well but I am surmising from the name that it is loop based composing so what about programs like Ableton Live or Native Instruments Maschine?
No it's pretty much a very straight up step sequencer.
KVR Audio is pretty much the gearpage of computer music software.
You can run fruity loops on a recent Mac under Windows (newer Macs will run windows).
But can I use it as a plug-in with say Logic?

I don't think so. I believe it's a host and needs to run under Windows. I could be wrong, but I use other Image Line instruments as AU plugs in Logic, and the website implies the rest of their stuff won't work on a Mac.
Boo-urns. I found this one called idrum, it may fit the bill.
I really like iDrum for its simplicity and UI, but i wish it was a little more flexible. For instance, it can't do anything other than standard 4/4..2/4 time!
boo, that sucks.
Wait, there's been an update!
You may actually like this... I enjoy using iDrum but the song editing features were a little weak and the lack of time signature support sucked.. but the update says it fixed that! I cant wait to get home and DL it...!
Since you mentioned Logic and appear to be looking for a drum pattern based sequencer.
I'm going to try and explore it more and see what I can come up with.
