      LMMS vs FL Studio
      pros, cons and recent comments
       all • positive • negative      relevance • date
      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

      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.

      It is a DAW, like FL Studio, and is probably the most used substitute.

      It is so easy to use if you get used to it, no flashy colors, no next gen gui, just simple, easy to use program and you can learn how to use it very fast, recommended

      Caustic vs FL Studio
      pros, cons and recent comments
      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.)

      Logic Pro is easy to use, comes with lots of presets, has a ton of instruments and is compatible with the plugins I need. Better than FL Studio.
