User Reviews –
I’m a “Power User”, so I have very little negative to say. Since most people are listing Pros, I’m going to think harder about the cons to help you keep a balanced essay.
Everything is automatable with everything. Want to map your master tempo clock to the peak of a snare? You’re one right-click away. When you realize the scope of this, it becomes a bit of an experimental playground. But more than anything, that kind of unique freedom makes working easier.
Amazing MIDI controller integration. I’ve plugged stuff in mid-session and it just started working. If I did that in any other DAW I fear my computer would catch fire.
Deeply featured piano roll, there’s nothing else like it. The strum, arpeggios, custom quantization really makes sequences in plugins nearly useless features, since you can edit and humanize the input data to your liking.
Surprisingly lightweight, stable software for the amount of power it has.
Highly customizable and almost entirely vectoral. You can resize anything and keep it wherever you like on your screen, and it uses far less resources than most other DAWs, which still use bitmaps.
A “Performance Mode”. This is the side of FL that I have the least experience with, but it actually seems like a more functional and powerful of performance tool than Ableton to me when using it with a Launchpad. This is probably because of the automation freedom noted above.
It’s priced for musicians, not recording studios. In addition, Imageline deserves a lot of credit for being the first DAW creator that listened to what musicians asked for rather than deciding what people will become comfortable with. I’ve asked them for weird, slightly useful features before only to surprisingly see them in the following alpha/beta releases.
The sidebar is amazing for speeding up work. You can drag and drop anything from a plugin that isn’t in your database to a drum sample to a preset to a folder full of stems into your session. When working in other DAWs, I quickly realize how much time and labor this saves me.
Workflow is very different than traditional DAWs. Someone coming from the world of Pro Tools is going to have a rough transition.
Poor console integration. FL and my automated board work together with a lot of tinkering, but it still doesn’t feel like they’re meant to.
Plugin management is confusing. As a 10+ year user of the software, I had to watch a number of tutorial videos to organize my plugins when 12 was released. I do believe that in future updates the chaotic niggles will be swept up into a plugin management system that makes every other DAW look bad. It’s hard to call this a “con” since there really isn’t a good plugin management interface in any software to my knowledge.
Odd ASIO performance. A lot of times it’s trial and error. For example, my “decent” Focusrite 18i20 gets better latency than my “exceptional” RME Fireface UFX+. In any other software, the RME gets 2-3x better performance than the Focusrite. In FL, for some reason, it buffers out under 10ms.
No audio quantization. Cubase, Logic, Pro Tools, Nuendo, Presonus Studio, etc can all detect transients and “time correct” recorded audio. Newtone is a step in the right direction, but it’s certainly not usable for time correction on a quality level.
Nuendo integrates with Wwise, and 2 other DAWs will be incorporating this feature soon. This is huge for people working with game audio, and is enough of a perk to have me switching over to Nuendo when doing gigs using Wwise.
Video integration, while improved, leaves a bit to be desired. I still use it when scoring to picture though.
Pros: Fast, unique, tailored towards quickly making electronic loop-based music, great with MIDI
Cons: tracking system is less intuitive than traditional DAWs
Lifetime free updates
Easier interface for beginners
Many beginners and even experienced producers use it (many “underground” or not so internationally famous SoundCloud beatmakers/producers too) so collabing is a breeze.
Heavily hated on DAW
Don’t think you can find many unless you’ve been using another DAW before
- becoming addicted to making tunes, or sometimes just fiddling with ideas.
- being able to do so much without actually having a fucking clue what you are doing that it tricks people into thinking they don’t need to actually get a fucking clue what they are doing, leading to people branding it as an amateur program because the vast majority of people that use it never bother to get a fucking clue what they are doing.
- having the word “fruity” in the name leads to the same problem of people writing it off as an amateur toy
- defaulting to include a limiter on the master that 99% of noobs don’t take off before getting a decent mixdown because they have no clue what the fuck they are doing
- basically, every single con is only a con because it enables people to be retarded
- One real major con is not having a proper way to modulate sample start offset in the native sampler
- One other con is not being fully scriptable
