This review is from: Image Line FL Studio Fruity 11
Pros: FL Studio is very capable. There's a reason it is the most popular DAW. Well, multiple reasons...
Simplicity - Not hard to figure out, although no DAW is easy for a beginner. FL is a great starting DAW.
Free Lifetime updates! That is incredible. That alone makes it worth having, even if you end up liking a different DAW . Price - entry-level access to begin making music at an affordable price. You should try the demo version first to see if you like it. You might want a different DAW when it comes to full recording.
The Beat editor and Piano Roll tools are great, but most other DAW's have similar loop building capabilities. It's great for learning how to arrange your music, however.
It comes with a few VST's, which is nice, and you can pick up even more with the Signature bundle.
The layout is pretty nice, although the browser is a not as clean as some other DAW's.
Cons: Since FL Studio is easy to use, it does lack some capabilities you might find in other DAW's. I've used Cubase and Ableton, and I have to say that Ableton is the best out of the three. I think FL Studio lacks that professional feel that some other DAW's have. Fortunately, if all you want to do is make music, this is a great tool to get you started. You will need at least the Producer version so that you can record directly into the arrangement (linear) view. The browser is a not as clean as some other DAW's. Ableton has a better browser area, in my opinion.
It only comes in PC format. If you're a Mac user, this isn't for you (obviously).
Other Thoughts: Overall, it is a great DAW. If you are curious, it's worth considering. I would suggest downloading the demo versions of this, Cubase, Ableton, or whatever you can get your hands on. Try them out one at a time for a month each and then make your decision.
