Yeah you need to be signed to a lable but not all record lables are in the same league. some are quite easy to get signed to (not saying Xkore is not awesome or anything). How do you even know he uses Fl Studio anyway.

Unless that was a typo (google only shows this thread and paragonx9's newgrounds :P), ParagonX9 does not use FLS from her blog posts. She uses Cubase.


Can you feel it mister Krabs?

Spor uses FL Studio as well. A lot of ignorance floats around about FL studio and it seems to catch this bad rap for being an amateur's DAW, at least this is what I've noticed from the current scene. Most people brag about Albeton being the "choice software" but even the experienced who use ableton know it really just preference when it comes down to it.

If you've used it and it does everything you need it to, continue using it.

If it don't, use something else.

I just recently learned (from ImageLine's Twitter) that Benn Jordan, the guy who does The Flashbulb stuff, uses FL Studio. Image Line has a whole list on their website of "power users", people who use their program and makes ludicrous amounts of money.

He's right. FL Studio is TERRIBLE. You can't even like... make fucking toast with it. I just tried doing my laundry with FL Studio and they all came out BLEACHED!! GODDAMMIT.

I hate you FL Studio. Ruined my damn life.

I know Skrillex and Paragonx9 do.

Pretty sure Bassnectar, Bare Noize, Headhunterz, and Da Tweekaz use it too.

All of the amazing artists that use fl.. right here
And dude.. seriously? its not the program at all thats rubbish.. FL is an amazing DAW.. Its the person who uses it that really matters, if you can master and mix stuff well your songs will sound a ton more professional then you think.
So basically. Fl can get you far.. just like these guys up there ^ .. but its the person who is making the music that matters.

Some of the amazing artists lol. There are plenty more that aren't listed as power users too.

It's all about knowing how to use the software. It's equally possible to suck on any DAW, FL Studio is just more within reach for the average user.

As far as current artists go, you can also add J Rabbit to the list. I talked to him a lot about FL Studio when we booked him here in Springfield because he uses it as well.

Lol what?

Deadmau5 does use FL but produces mostly in Ableton along with skrillex. All the rest probably don't except Dimrain lol.

The one notable person I can think of other then the ones mentioned that use FL is Arty.

This is how a pro uses FL studio

High quality video of the actual song

I don't know what VSTi's he was using.

Gate To Heaven (Dreameye Mix) is not technically pro, but still incredible, and was made using FL Studio 7 with Absynth 3.4, Z3ta+, Vanguard, and Atmosphere plus the Techno Trance Essentials sample pack.

Break Free 2 is a track by TranceCrafter that was made in FL Studio 10 using Sylenth1, EastWest Hollywood Strings, and EastWest Quantum Leap Complete Composer's Collection. He also used Ozone 4 to master the track after it was rendered to wav from FL Studio.

FL Studio is built primarily for software based composition, whereas many professionals tend to prefer analog synths using DAWs that are better geared towards complex live recording sessions. A lot of people simply don't like FL Studio's workflow. However, there is nothing about FL Studio that inherently makes it less capable of producing quality tracks. A DAW is a DAW. FL Studio can render a song with just as much clarity as any other DAW, a fact that has been proven time and time again (there was a thread I can't find linking to a study proving this at some point).

HalcyonicFalconX and Waterflame use FL, they're fairly popular but I don't think they make money from it, correct me if I'm wrong.

It's the mass amounts of shit people make with it that give it a bad rep is all... When you think of honda civic do you think of a decent, reliable car, or do you think of stupid spoilers, and gay vinyls with some douchebag driving it with his slip-on exhaust going MWUB MWUB MWUB

The latter.

Yeah, to think that ANYTHING is bad based on other people's experiences is a ridiculous notion. Just do what you need to do to be happy with what you got and use it to your advantage and full potential. I've used the program for almost 6 years and love it like day one, but that's just me. Some people like Cubase, some people like Reason, some people like Ableton... just depends on the person.

...what was I talking about?
