I'll try to be as helpful as I can to anyone reading this review, however I've only been using FL 10 & 11 scarcely in the span of the last three years; I don't know the complete ins and outs of this product. However, I must say that FL 12 is a serious step up from the previous version. With the unlockage of plugins like Sytrus and Maximus, literally anything is possible to produce now. I started out with the Fruity Edition of FL 10, which needless to say, is extremely difficult to produce with and terrifyingly limited. Seriously, my upgrade to Producer Edition made me cry after finally having the ability to make as many automation clips as I pleased, and to add wave files directly onto the playlist, so much easier than placing audio into FL's built-in sampler.
In my experience with FL 12, everything is much more visually appealing, it looks very sleek, very beautiful. Everything is "vectorial based," or so I've heard, meaning you can stretch the resolution of the program to just about any resolution you want. You can even have multi-monitor set ups and large screen portrayals. I think the limit is like 1200 screens. Seriously. You can have FL run on one master screen, and still show up vectorially on 1000 other monitors. That's crazy, and probably makes for some cool visuals at EDM festivals and whatnot.
I've also found that the audio is a bit more noticeable when you click on a track, not when you solo it, which adds for a nice groove to the parts you're singling out in your track, but leads to poor mixdown ability on the behalf of the producer. It forces you to click on the master track to get an accurate read of where all your instruments sit in the mix. Of course, maybe this has always been the case in FL, but I haven't noticed it until I downloaded my free upgrade to 12.
That's another thing, once you buy the software, any software from Image-Line, it's always yours. Your upgrades from one FL Version to another are always free, and the plugins that you have bought in the past always stay with you and your upgrade. That's a HUGE plus because some DAWs and plugins out there require you to pay a bit of money in order to upgrade which really hinders your ability to work on something that sounds fresh and sweet, in my opinion because you're too busy trying to work and save money to buy the next upgrade. I'm sure there are plenty of people willing to settle for not-up-to-date software, but with Image-Line you won't have to. And it's never going away is the best part. When FL 997 comes out, it'll be all mine for free, because I paid for the Producer Edition of FL 11. SCORE!
This is really a huge piece of software not for the simple-minded. This isn't a toy, it's a tool. It is incredibly powerful, and constantly challenges you. Even when you're going through bouts of creativity block or just pure laziness, you'll always find something to be uncovered or treasured within this software. It's performance mode is phenomenal. It's ability to work on your tablet and your monitor is flawless and ingenious. This will always be my go-to product for anyone trying to get started with Audio Production because this software will show you just how grueling, tedious, but also rewarding and enticing making music can be.
I started with FL studio 11 Producer Edition. Upgraded to 12 when it came out. FL 12 has been awesome to work with. Not to mention if I have ever had an Issue with something the Support Staff has been great. (You can only reach them by email, but surprisingly They do a better job that way for me than any call I have ever made for support services.) I am completely green in this world, and It has been awesome to see soo many Tutorial videos, Seamless, who is a producer who does tutorial videos with FL Studios has been the main reason I have been able to figure this program out, and I am very Thankful to Image Line for working with Seamless. Great program.
My main DAW. I upgraded from FL11 because I liked the modern, new look and I highly recommend this if you are just starting off in Music Production. I started with FL11 and I didn't want to change DAWs ever since. FL Studio is simple, but powerful in the right hands.
High value, quality DAW especially excelling in piano roll and automation controls
I use both FL Studio and Logic (primarily logic) and find both to be very useful for different purposes when producing and composing. For MIDI data manipulation, both are amazing, but FL studio stands out for its simplicity and smooth efficiency of piano roll input. The included ZGameEditor plugin is also extremely useful for effortlessly creating interesting high quality videos for many purposes.
Best Daw I've used to date!
When I first started producing, REAPER was my first DAW of choice. Since then I've used logic pro x and recently upgraded to FL Studio and I can say I am satisfied! It is extremely efficient especially when you are on a time schedule. With all the effects at your disposal, I can easily access all presets and VST's a lot quicker. I would recommend to for anybody looking for a great DAW!
Easy to Use My Favorite DAW!
The whole application feels more modern and easier to navigate. The mixer, in particular, looks and feels so much more up to date than it was before, meaning that using it is a great deal more appealing.
The new scalability will be a bonus for anyone investing in higher-resolution monitors, which are getting cheaper all the time, and multi-touch is certainly interesting.
Even if your system doesn’t have a touchscreen, you may find that the lure of controlling FL Studio 12 in a very hands-on way persuades you to add a capable monitor, which can be relatively affordable. You’ll need a recent version of Windows for this, of course.
FL Studio has a large user base, and it seems likely that this new version will serve only to grow it further. A capable, affordable and now very modern-feeling DAW.
So easy for me to quickly lay out my ideas while i still have the edge on a track. I find it so user friendly plus i'm in love with the piano role and interface too. In a nutshell its the quickest way for me to lay down my ideas quickly since i tend to fo
FL Studio is the route to take if you are programming a dozen of melodies and ideas in your head and need to lay them down quickly before you forget them. Very user friendly and affordable too. Very stable with Windows and unfortunately a setback with MAC OSX .Manipulation of samples in this program is amazing. Piano roll like no other, plugins are also very efficient.
