Any secondary DAWs worth learning?
« on: April 04, 2015, 02:13:36 AM »
I am an avid FL Studio user. I also use audacity, and import audio files into FL Studio. Is there any reason to learn another DAW? I have tried but can't see the reasoning to start learning something new when I can do the same thing (as I know) in FL Studio.

Any thoughts?

I think it is a good idea. I had an issue with PT 11. An era message AEE or AAE 9173--Protools ran out of CPU power,remove or de-activate native plugin. Also my 2nd gen ILOk key went bad. I use a 2009 IMAC, I am glad I downloaed Logic Pro 10. That was my back up without the need of an ILOK key

It depends on your needs and whether you wish to accomplish something completely different, and if you believe that a different DAW will satisfy that wish. Truthfully, I have been using FL religiously and I am aware that if a track I am working on lacks that 'oomph', it is because I simply have not endeavoured hard enough to get it right. I can, however, suggest that you get as many plugins as humanly possible as it pushes the scope of one's capabilities. In fact, if it weren't for plugins I would have switched to another DAW for sure; specifically Reason as I have toyed with it for a few hours and found its synths mind-blowing.

Again, though, it just depends on what you wish to accomplish. And maybe I'm just a FL-fanboy...
