    Hey,

    I'm a beginner in making beats and I have a few questions. I have access to the full version of ProTools 9 and I'm wondering how that compares to FL Studio. I am interested in creating beats and making mashups. Should I learn on ProTools or buy FL Studio?

    If FL Studio which version would be best to buy?

    FL and Protools are different. Buy the one that you like better. You can evaluate FL Studio and you say you have PT9 so just try them out and see what feels better to you.

    If you buy FL, always buy the latest version from Image Line. Also buy through my link http://warbeats.com/Buy_Fruity_Loops_Buy_FL_Studio_Best_Deal_Save_Big.aspx to save money and get free VIP here at Warbeats.

    Like NFX said, they are both different beasts that do the same thing, but in very different ways

    I would quess that FL is much faster to get up and running and see results with. I.e. if you have an idea, you will propably get it down faster with FL then PT. PT on the other hand has it's own strengths and shines on those.

    Like the man said, you should really try both of them out and see which one you prefer to work with and produce the best results with. Never mind what everyone else says, it's all opinions and alot of bouncing around facts read from somewhere else.

    "Beats and Mashups", hmnn for that specifically I'd go FL Studio between the two. Having said that, Pro Tools is an industry standard. Acid would have to be thrown in to the discussion for Mashups, that's what it's designed for. I guess the way I look at it, why choose? Learn em' all and use the tool that works best for the particular job at hand. I wouldn't dream of limiting myself to one guitar, why would I do that with software?

    I don't believe in the "learn how to do everything in one program or your not serious" philosophy. Adobe After Effects does certain things, Vegas does certain things, Photoshop etc, no film maker would use only one program to make a movie, no Graphic Artist would, not someone doing 3D, it's curious that musicians get hung up on the "only one program" thing.

     But... taking the "I'm a beginner" thing into account, go FL, you'll be making beats in no time.

     Although Reason is great for teaching you terminology that everyone else uses. as opposed to "Fruityspeak" and will also have you making beats in no time, but Mashups, don't know how you'd do thtat in Reason so... FL.  So many good tutorials for FL, NFX has got some of the best.  Personally I couldn't imagine any version less than the one with audio recording but... you could go with the Piano Roll version if your not gonna be recording audio any time soon.  That link NFX put there will give you discount on upgrades later too... btw.

    Get fruity loops. I just got pro tools 10 and I'm very disappointed… it exports ONLY in realtime -_- but as far as beat making, FL is the best in my opinion. Pro Tools is only good for producers who actually know how to play the keyboard.
