    All though it lacks some of its FL studios features? (i.e attachable and detachable panels) it does support VST plugins and the interface is very easy to use once you get used it, all in all, it's a great DAW, anyone who says it's bad ethier has bias or not enough experience with the program

    Although quite different and not as convenient like FL Studio, it's still probably the best thing we're gonna get for free.

    Caustic vs FL Studio opinions
    Most users think Caustic is a great alternative to FL Studio.

    Although I would seriously recommend Caustic to anyone that wants to make synth music and do VERY basic production, I would not recommend it for professionals as it lacks many features (VSTs, etc.)

    Qtractor is a full fledged DAW for Linux. Unlike FL, it is not available for Windows or Mac. It also lacks the graphic refinement of FL as well as the powerful suite of bundled tools. While it's an alternative, it's not one of the closest.
