    Ive tried it and couldnt say i liked it to much what are you using at the moment?! the tune in your signature is pretty sick! if your using logic or cubase i would just stick with them as they are arguably the best.

    Mate, I made the switch from FL to Ableton a few month's back, and I gotta say it's the best thing I ever done!

    Seriously, all the built in plugs, like the EQ, reverb, delay, compressor etc etc blah blah blah are outstanding! When using FL I always used third party plugs as FL's built in ones were mediocre at best. Things like sidechaining in FL were a long winded mission, but it's quite simply as easy as pressing the sidechain button on the compressor in live!

    Building tracks is alot easier in Ableton too, no need to clone tracks to make a different riff, just write the riff in the next box and its there!

    My creativity has been sky high since making the switch, I highly reccommend it, you wont be dissappointed!

    Take a quick listen to my new stuff, all made in Ableton. I would never have dreamed making stuff like this on FL!
