"Had to have Gross Beat"

This review gets 4 stars because I thought I'd get a USB. This is a lot of money to fork out for a manual with a code, but at least it comes with that. A digital download would just be a link, so I am getting more. I had to have Gross Beat and the payments at Zzounds allowed me to get this version over the Producer Edition. This version also comes with a sampler. I made the choice to switch to FL Studio from Bitwig 8 Track, because I was spending all of my time modulating. I realized all of my sounds were useless with Bitwig. I was also limited to 8 tracks. I started off on FL Studio 11 demo, so I have an understanding of how it works. I downloaded the FL demo and hated it. Then, I decided to watch a few tutorials, and I was making music within minutes. The faders are much better than Bitwigs. I'm still relatively new, but automation will be much easier. I'm using a computer with an i5 processor and the demo songs played without glitching, once I adjusted my settings. Having 30 tracks in a song running smoothly is key. The piano roll is arguably the best over any over daw. My weakness is playing midi piano parts, so being able to draw precise notes is beyond helpful. I know you can draw notes in any daw, but this piano roll is top notch. I couldn't find one modern day producer who used Bitwig. There is a reason for that. It cannot hold a candle to other daws. I gave up modulation and using toy sounds for something professional. I'll be able to create electronic music for the rest of my life now. I'll receive free updates for life. The Bitwig tutorials are very limited. FL Studio tutorials are everywhere. This isn't just beatmaking software. Martin Garrix uses FL Studio. This software is perfect for my experimental music. I enjoy using a few different kicks for one song. The dark layout is visually appealing. The included synths are pretty good, but don't expect Serum and Sylenth 1 caliber synths. The Mac compatibility will be perfect when I take the Mac route. This was a big feature years ago, as it was only Windows when I first started. I'm very pleased with my purchase. I will only buy from Zzounds due to the easy payments. This was my second purchase and the one day free shipping was much appreciated.
