Some misunderstandings about Eat This:


A wide spread misunderstanding is that the sound engine of Eat This was the basis for our later FL Studio music software.


The first Fruityloops program used MIDI only, while Eat This did not use MIDI files, but WAV files for its audio.
Although both programs share the same lead programmer, Didier Dambrin, the Eat This sound engine was not created by Image-Line, but licensed from a 3rd party supplier.
