FL Studio's Piano roll has the well deserved reputation as one of the best in the business. The Piano roll is used to send note and automation data to plug-in instruments (sequencing). It includes a wide range of tools to aid complex score editing and manipulation. No other DAW matches the flexibility of FL Studio's Playlist. Sequence all elements of the project to make the final song. Tracks can hold notes, audio and automation. Place any data type anywhere and even overlay them. Use the Browser to organize all the data in your project. FL Studio Producer Edition includes over 80 instrument and effect plug-ins covering automation, sample playback/manipulation, synthesis, compression, delay, equalization filtering, flanging, phasing, chorus, reverb, distortion, bit-crushing and more. With FL Studio you will be ready to create just about any style.

Its amazing i have had it for a while and ive been using mainly only the stock plugins
I love lifetime upgrade program.
I went from using Magix, to FL and although I love both there is soooooo much more potential to FL. It is perfect for beginners starting a music career.
Definitely takes some getting used to but so far I'll give it 5 stars no complaints!
