I am new to music production, and I just got FL Studio 10 Producer Edition. At first, this software might look a little intimidating, but I picked it up in less than two days. It's extremely easy to use, and it comes with a good choice of plugins, and hundreds of sounds! If you were in my shoes a couple days ago, torn between buying FL Studio or Ableton, let me tell you the problems with Ableton: The CHEAPEST full version of Ableton Live 8 is just as easy to use, but has a very low number of instruments, sounds and plugins, and it costs twice as much as the Producer edition of FL, so then if you want to buy Ableton with more sounds, it cost 4 times as much as this version of FL!! I'd say it's easier to sequence a pattern on FL than Ableton. Either one is going to get the job done, but if you're on a budget, I recommend FL Studio.
A few months ago, I downloaded the FL Studio free demo from Image-Line. I was very impressed by the ease of use and shallow learning curve for this software, as well as how well it handled system resources. Before FL Studio, I used Cakewalk Music Creator, which was a massive resource hog and a very limited tool. So the difference for me was huge. In addition to the software just being great, there's the added bonus of lifetime free upgrades that Image-Line gives with your purchase! Overall, I am very impressed with this product and would recommend it to anyone who's looking for solid, flexible, and quality music production software.
I bought FL Studio 10 producer and I don't like it; it's too complicated! It's easier to work with a workstation keyboard than to work with FL Studio. You get great results with a workstation keyboard. I would've bought Garage Band on my Ipad instead of paying for FL Studio!
this software is awesome! i had cubase elements 6 as a beginning software... and decided to upgrade to this, awesome choice! It is hard to use at first, but once you work your way through it a few times your golden. It's awesome for just about any genre, i play heavy metal and record other people for fun and it works great. the mastering programs are easy to use, i didnt even know i was done mastering a few tracks till i listened to them and heard how good they sound. The only complaint is that it is hard to use at first and it looks very overwhelming... but in reality it's not if you are familiar with other daw software. Every software has it's own layout and i enjoy this one the most out of what i have bought so far. 5 stars!
