Didn't read all of this thread...but FL Studio (Fruity Loops) is a beat sequencer just like a MPC or any other supposedly "high end" equipment. FL is such a joke because when it first came out it came with VERY corny / cheap sounds. Any one serious doesn't use those sounds. But with the later versions it comes with usable sounds. Any one that thinks FL is a joke has obviously never used it. And too the person that said something about "think of what Lex can make once he upgraded to high end equip", well he never will cause for #1) he most likely can't play piano. He picks his sounds and clicks in his notes (not knocking him for it, it still takes skill to create the melody). and #2) VSTi's (computer software plugins, ran through programs like FL) are way more advanced sounding and more popular than hardware sound modules are these days. I don't really make beats anymore, but when I do I find myself using VSTi's way more than I do my Roland Fantom X & Yamaha Motif ES boards.
