I like the new mixer that Image Line put in FL Studio. Cool new interface, and they added a lot of value to all of the bundles. I have the Signature Bundle, which got like $310 worth of plugins added to it (guess who doesn't have to save for Gross Beat anymore). Best part is, it still costs $300.
Excellent Production Application
FL Studio has several aspects which, for me, put it over the top of the competition. First and foremost, its interface is beautiful. Everything in FL is extremely visual and nice to look at. But, that's just the surface. Everybody has their own work flow, and I personally feel like FL Studio is the most versatile DAW there is, allowing the producer the most flexibility to create music how they want to. Everything about it is made to be customized; as the producer, you have complete freedom over how you do what you are trying to do. I also must compliment the mixer, because it is simply fantastic. I have never used a more versatile and capable mixer in my life. The last thing I love about FL Studio (well, not really, but just for the sake of this review) is how insane its audio-editing capabilities are. Every audio clip in FL Studio has some basic parameters which can be changed without the need for any kind of plugin. These include pitch, speed, reverse, and fade in/out. However, if that doesn't do it for you, FL Studio comes shipped with an unbelievable plugin called Edison, that is simply amazing. It is by far the best audio-editing suite I have ever worked in. Edison can be used inside other DAWs, but its integration into FL Studio is seamless, which it aught to be, since they're both made by Image-Line. All that to be said, FL Studio is, in my opinion, one of the best DAWs there is. However, that does not mean it is the best for everyone, but I think it is the best for more people than any other DAW.
By far my favorite choice of DAW. I ran ableton for a couple years and while it did a lot and was sufficient, when i first got my hands on FL a couple months ago it blew up how I once went about my workflow. The layout is much more complex than any other DAW's, but once you get the hang of it you really see the advantages it provides. The stock synths and effects are much better than anything Ableton comes with, and the helpful, direct support from Image Line is awesome. I can't wait for the Beta to be officially released on Mac!
