It's easy to use and intuitive. I work on this daw since 8 years, I just love it.
In this interview, Skream lists three good things and three bad things about FL Studio: "3 good things… it’s easy to get ideas down. I think the drum sequencer in it is the bollocks... The layout, it’s all quite easy to learn. Bad things… it don’t bounce in 24 bits. It can fuck certain VSTs coming into it. The whole buffer thing is not that good, it’ll crackle up a lot of sounds from some VSTs. What’s another bad thing? Recording! Recording into it… I don’t think you can record into it. I record in Soundforge and then put it into FL. I’ll probably say that now and I’ll have someone on the internet saying that you can do it! (laughs)"more
"f I remember right I started with Fl Studio 7, I just downloaded a trial version and messed around a little bit. I was very limited because of money and I didn’t have any hardware at that time so I was spending hours and hours just messing around and making a thousand tracks a week."more
"I've been using FL Studio since the old Fruityloops 2 and I've grown with it all the way. I've used other products and production tools but FL is the only one that is not limited to anything but how much your computer can take. So if your computer is super fast your at an advantage the way you can put down ideas is great, and you can now record vocals in it, which is epic and I always learn something new while using it."more
Here you can see K-391 playing a track through Fl Studio 11. In [this accompanying interview from *Image-Line*](http://www.image-line.com/documents/powerusers.php?entry_id=1414384433), K-391 says "When I was around 14 years old, I wanted to start making these techno/trance songs myself. So I began looking for a way to do it, and boom, I found Fl Studio. After a year I started posting tracks. There was no feedback to be given, but I didn't quit and started posting for another year."more
"The advantages with producing electronic music with FL STUDIO are many, for ex: The sequencer and the piano roll are awesome, you can produce any melody and harmony with the mouse in just a few minutes. The animation of the entire program makes it easy to use and navigate, and because everything is so easy to find, it’s easy to learn. It doesn’t need much space on the hard drive and compared to other music programs you can use FL STUDIO on a normal PC / Laptop without latency."more
I've been using FL Studio ever since I started making music on my laptop using an actual software. It was a big step from using the online site soundation.com to the user interface and style of an actual DAW. Before, I researched what the best DAW was and after searching for a while, I decided it was time to choose one. My choice lead to FL Studio. I tried out Abelton, and Pro Tools, the top combatants against FL Studio. I also tried Logic on my friends laptop. Neither of them were as easy to use, and fast enough for my creative flow. Most of the time, even after watching tutorials upon tutorials, I could not use the other DAWs as quickly and at the quality of FL Studio. I have made better songs, and my creative flow has not been harmed at all by using FL Studio. I am amazed at how many people say it is a child's toy, but to be honest, the quality of music that can be made just by using this "child's toy" is staggering. I will most definitely always use FL Studio unless someone teaches me how to run another DAW, that I would like to see beat it.
Fl studio is a brilliant daw that is best used for electronic music production with a unique take on how the arrangement can be and the piano roll acts recently adding support for mac and 64X systems
My One and Only DAW. Super Easy To Learn and Get The Hang of it thanks to multiple Youtube Tutorials. Very easy to write down melodies fast using the Piano Roll, and it comes preloaded with many VST's to start with. (HARMOR FTW.)
Many people will disagree with fruity loops studio because it seems for noobz but to tell you the truth I use it in all my productions it's gui interface is the best looking and simular to both logic and cubase it's easy to organize everything and structure it
Many say FL studio is for amateurs. I am an amateur. I am alo a experienced user of high end software like the Adobe suite. I absolutely love it. I have the 'everything there is bundle'. Never regretted it for a second
Against people who says that best music is made with DAWs like Cubase or Logic, he believes that actually the best music is made with the DAW an artist feels confortable to use.
I started out using this for fun when I was 18, creating hardstyle and hardcore music. My mixdowns and masterings were TERRIBLE. But the idea, arrangements, melodies, were ahead of its time in the hardstyle scene. I then decided I loved what I was doing and started learning everything I can about music production.
FL was the DAW I started producing with, and while I do feel I've "grown out" of it (for the most part), it's still a very good DAW. Now, I make my synths and drums in Cubase, them export them into FL for arranging, mixing, and mastering.
