Default FL Studio

Is anybody out there not ashamed to say they use FL Studio?

I have it on my PC and haven't run it in I don't know how long.

Sonar and NI Akoustic Piano were acting up this morning. Kore2 doesn't seem to want to cooperate either. So, to try out the free CM Soundpack, I decided to open FL Studio.

I had forgotten how easy it is to put something together. And it runs without any complaints!

Does anyone out there use it regularly or as their main "DAW"?

you read my mind, i was re examining FL last night as a guy who designs sound uses it and "benga" too, i posted a link to the guy who designs sound, his tutorial on melody is interesting as he uses chordspace and not sure what that is about but when i searched youtube i didnt find much. looks interesting

I just looked at that on the site you recommended here Some great synth soundsets.

Looks interesting...but I was asking about FL Studio not ChordSpace.

That's what I've rediscovered I like about FL. Unlike Reason, you I can use all the VSTs I use in Sonar plus I can record audio if I want. And it's low consumption.

Presumably, it would be more desirable to complete a project in a "bigger" DAW, but FL has it's uses I think.

I think oh-wise-one (long time since I called you THAT!) that that fact is well documented here on these forums! Mac here I come. PT here I come.

Sonar IS good...but it spends TOO much time fighting against me! When I opened FL this morning and bang bang away you go, I thought (again) "what am I doing with a DAW that causes me trouble?"

I had a nasty momentary thought this morning. I moved from FL to Sonar. And then this thought picked my brain - what advantage did it have to spend all that money on Sonar, books, videos, Rapture Pro when all I have got is headaches. Then I kicked myself in the ass and told myself I must have learned something about sequencing, tracking and programming. So on with the show!

But it would be funny if I abandoned Sonar for FL, now wouldn't it?

bare in mind FL is not available for mac, everything we do is a learning experience imo so its all valuable in its own right

Thumbs up

On my PC-based laptop the first application I'd install would be FL Studio as the environment is quick and relatively easy to use with low CPU usage
