who gives a flying f**k about moronic twitter high school popularity contests.

Fruity Loops loses in the real world battle of volume sales and kudos among professionals and for being single platform only. This is what counts FTW in the 'real' world.


(and yes, some other social network dweeb did post this already ... yawn :roll: )


Most of the users on that poll are probably 16 year old warez users anyway ....

honestly, if it means that more johnny-come-lately noob buttholes start using FL over Live, then that gives us Live users an edge. Let them tweet.

I'm not knocking FL Studio. The Producer/XXL editions have come a LONG way in the past 2 or 3 releases and it's powerful software. But while it has a few features we'd like to see in Live, Live has a plethora of features missing in FL Studio and the audio in FL STudio still feels tacked on and incomplete. Using it as a pattern sequencer with it's inbuilt synths like Sytrus and decent plugins like the Fruity SLicer, Direct Wave, Vocoder and Maximus etc is still the best way to use it. Many people I know finish off their additional audio overdubs voice/guitars etc in another sequencer. Being able to use FL Studio like a giant VST is great.

I'll still take a pass on it, having Live and Cubase as my main tools with Renoise and Reaper as secondary/backup works fine for me and learning another DAW (I already had to learn Logic, PT and DP in my job and also dabbled with Sonar) it's just too much to master all of that.
