Arguru, Fruity Loops Creator Dies in Accident

Sad day. Condolences to everyone close to him.

Translated via
"Arguru, virtual programmer of Image Line (FL Studio) and creator of sintes of DiscoDSP, passed away yesterday near Benalmádena (Malaga), in a car accident.

Yesterday Sunday 3 of June, to 18:45 hours, the car of Juan Antonio [left the road] in the AP-7, near Benalmádena (Malaga), despeñando themselves and ending its life. Its burial was celebrated Monday to 17:30 today, in the park cemetery of Malaga, company of its relatives and friends more close friends.

Arguru was [hispasónico nº 2,751], one of most veteran. He was [sworn of IV the Musical Battles], celebrated in the spring of 2004, and many moments, active participant of our forums.

But mainly,] the 19 of July of 2002, George was known to found the company [DiscoDSP along with Real. DiscoDSP is the person in charge of sintes as famous as [Discovery] and Vertigo. In [December of year 2002] we already gave account of one of his first products, NightShine.

Arguru was a great professional, who called the attention by the quality of his creations. Sintes of DiscoDSP is surely the perfected and powerful virtual instruments more of the market, without concessions in quality of sound.

The community to tracker will have without a doubt a great memory of Arguru thanks to [Aodix], secuenciador-tracker very powerful, that incorporated professional MIDI, support VST and other characteristics. ] Was also an important component of [Smartelectronix and the scene [Buzz].

In 2004,], the creative company of the famous FL Studio left DiscoDSP to give to the jump to [Image Line. Arguru had a great implication in the development of FL Studio 7; it created in addition sampler Directwave, and very recent [Deckadance], a software for DJs.

He was referring an absolute one of the small group of Spaniards who dedicate themselves professionally to the musical technology. Some we already remembered to him from the excited ones to char them of IRC-Hispanic. Arguru always emphasized by its seriousness and the deep knowledge of the synthesis and the programming.

A great loss, to an age in which nobody would have to leave this world. From we give to many spirits to family and friends him, and left to a sense memory for the brilliant Arguru here, to which we will never forget in Hispasonic."



  1. This is tragic, horrid shit.

    Huge, huge impact, a good damn run mate.

  2. This is so sad.

    His work was beyond sensational.

    FL is my favorite music making program by far. I hope Image Line will continue its development.

    Sad, terrible, loss.

    We are all diminished.

  3. Yes, it was truely sad news.

    And Matrix - stop calling the program Fruity Loops - its is called FL Studio and nothing else. Remember to change the tag as well.

  4. i remember talking to him on the IRCnet buzztracker channel #buzz many years ago ... never got to know him much but i used some of the arguru machines in almost every song.. never used the buzz-clone and other trackers he went on to create but kept up to date on them.. didn't know he went VST. condoleances to all his friends and family.

  5. he will be missed


    This has been a shit end to a shit day. :(

    Rest in peace, man.

  7. I think that Gol, the developer of Fl Studio is actually Didier Dambrin.
    I don't know FL history that well, so maybe this cat did create it.
