    • 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 Guest • May 2017 • 20 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Although quite different and not as convenient like FL Studio, it's still probably the best thing we're gonna get for free. VenHayzNov 2016 • 19 agrees and 6 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It's probably the best free DAW I've ever come across. It is so capable. When I got used to it, I was astonished about how much I could achieve with it. I couldn't stop telling my producer friends about it. They all use REASON and CUBASE and obviously they don't take me seriously because I never did a music production course and they have; so telling them about this good DAW means nothing to them. I love it nonetheless. Guest • Yesterday Disagree   Agree
