My overall experience using FL Studio has been the most satisfying ever. It helped to grow my business and name in Audio Production, and I just thank for the developers. The production is amazing and so professional. I change experience with producers all around the wo

Pros

FL Studio turns your inspiration into music. All the producers around the world can have another softwares installed. But they have also FL Studio. Do you know why? Because you can do everything you can imagine in FL Studio easily and professionally. Nice and easy interface, great commands and a bunch of tools and effects that gives life in the music production. Try it. You won't regret!!!

Cons

Sometimes when you drop some audios, FL bugs, and crashes. And it just makes me angry. But I beat this by saving and saving my project.

With a variety of full DAWs to choose from, and more music production software and apps releasing every day, FL Studio continues to stand out among it's compitition growing in popularity. The overall functionality and integration is impressive to say the least. Offering full mobile production apps for iOS, android, and windows, it's the only company to not only have mobile versions of itself, but also integrates with any system, beit hardware or software.

Pros

The overall features and functionality of FL Studio are the main reason for it's increasing popularity within the industry. It's especially growing in popularity with hip-hop producers.

Cons

I have used several other products that were much easier to use without nearly as much learning curve in the beginning. Ironically enough, the best qualities of FL Studio is also the reason for it's negative qualities. Because there's so much to unpack and understand with it's multitudes of features and functionality it comes with a pretty big learning curve if you really want to utilize it's full potential.

Reasons for Switching to FL Studio

I was personally drawn to FL Studio for it's virtual instrument selection, and integrative workflows. Using a DAW on every device has allowed me to make my business fully mobile, while maintaining a professional quality mix for my customers. At the end of the day, other products in this industry weren't even close to the mobility and functionality FL Studio comes stock with.

Over the past 10 years I have absolutely adored FL for always handling any tasks and for allowing me to do so much in very little time, speeding up my workflow.

Pros

Very intuitive and easy to learn. Whether you want to make beats, lyric videos ,record vocals or just mix and master ANY audio FL can handle it all without any issues.

Cons

Very limited selection on VST's there are some good stock plugins but I wish there was HQ plugins, so I don't have to buy so many from other sites.

Pro Tools

Reasons for Switching to FL Studio

Pro tools was kinda complicated to learn and is mainly made for Macintosh, while I use Windows. and Fl works like a dream on windows, but PT was pretty slow and laggy.
