Wow, thats total bullshit.
You must not be a true trance producer... If you don't know the huge amount of artists who exclusively use FL Studio and are professional. Beyond that, the huge amount of us who use FL Studio, are professional, but are not "out there", or "signed".
I'll write something, as a matter of fact... I have before... I'll write something with FL Studio, or on my guitar/piano. Sequence and produce it IN FL Studio... And people are like, what are you using now, Matt? And I tell them FL.
Now, with that... I have another side to me. I used REASON 2.5-3.0 as much as I've used FL Studio. And I've created amazing things with both. Neither one limited me. But, each one had an entire different output of my "sound" or "style".
Now, I ask of you to stop flaming/or intensively biasing towards your "beloved program". Go try Cubase, or Sonar, or something new. You'll produce great things if you lose that goddamn 'image' that whatever your using has its own place above others.
Again, another side. With each program, theres a learning curve. EVENTUALLY, whatever your using evolves into the same final learning curve(for lack of a better phrase).
Go on, discuss.
