  • Ableton Live, FL Studio, Pro Tools????

  • Definitely not Pro Tools as a first DAW. Pro Tools is the gold standard in the music industry, but for making beats it may limit you a bit just because it's got such a steep learning curve. It's a whole lot better for mixing and mastering than it is for making creative beats imo.

    I've used FL Studio, Logic Pro X, and Ableton Live, and I'd easily say go with Ableton. It looks harder but it's really not and allows you do experiment effortlessly with sounds. FL Studio not only looks like a kids toy, it's pretty limiting in some ways. It's easier if you're new for beats due to the step sequencer, but the step sequencer can only do so much.

    Ableton has fantastic stock plugins built in, and Max for Live gives you endless possibilities for installing or even creating your own integrated plugins. Definitely go Ableton

    Do you already have equipment? Are you just starting? Trying to make just beats or fully produced songs?

    FL Studio actually does look like a kid toy lol

  • FL Studio or Ableton are your best bet - not necessarily because they are the best (although I use FL exclusively) but because most tutorials out there are for these 2 DAWs, unless you're on a Mac, in which case Logic is another great option.

    I personally use FL Studio to make beats and I record and mix/master in Logic.

  • Definitely FL Studio.

    The workflow is smooth, and it can practically do what all the other DAW's can.

    The UI is a lot more straight to the point and pleasing to look at imo (which might be why they're saying it looks like a toy).

    It's also one of the most commonly used DAW's so you'll have access to more tutorials when you're first starting out.

  • Ableton or FL Studio, different workflow but it doesn't really affect production. Download a trial for both and see what you like?
