yeah, it must have been someone else. i have had every version of Suite since Live 7... until Live 10. i have not upgraded... yet.
to expound a little on my earlier post, i was pretty happy with FL Studio for what it was... that was around version 5,6,7,8 though... but i am not a fan of their "modules" where you pay around a hundred U.S. dollars per "instrument" system. i mostly used it for creating drums in the step sequencer (after adding more sounds to the library). i used it as a rewire slave in the those days to bring drums into Cubase SX 3. after Live 7, when drum racks and groups were introduced, i had no real need to go back to FL Studio but would occasionally use it to whip up a drum track fast if i had a guitar or bass player over that i might be able to coerce into recording something on the spot.
i was just faster in FL studio at that point. i used FL to make a beat that would get them strumming and i usually was able to pull it off in 5 minutes or so, which would lead to their creative juices getting a jump start and my end goal of recording. if they came over with making tracks during the visit as an already established purpose, then i just wouldn't bother and would use Live instead to save myself the trouble of exporting stems or dealing with recording from the re-wire slave to audio later. in those scenarios i had more time to tinker, so i used in on the superior DAW
