I use FLStudio now. I am slowly making the switch to Bitwig because I am a Linux user. Currently I have to run a windows VM just to work on music and it is quite frustrating (especially since FL started on Linux.....).
I see, thanks for answering bro

Ableton has a simple workflow and amazing editing possibilities.
I'd recommand to be your first option if you're considering starting to make music.
It literally doesn't matter. Pick one and learn it inside out.
My preference is for Ableton Live or Pro Tools. Between them, Ableton is very slightly nicer working with midi.

I actually agree 100% with this.

It became painful, buffer issues and latency were constant . A representative of M-Audio showed me Reason and its capabilities at a tradeshow passed me out the demo and this software changed my life.
I found it user-friendly, pretty easy to set-up (no need to be a technician to install it, set the audio in préférences and so on, whether you're a Mac or PC user), to start with an idea make a melody in no time. This was a game-changer for me. If you're into video games, most of the artists and groups featured on NeedForSpeedUnderground soundtrack have been awarded due to their work on it, used Reason (Crystal Method, B.T., Rob Zombie, FC Kahuna, Junkie XL, Asian Dub Foundation, The X-cutioners, T.I., Lil Jon and the Eastsideboys, Lost Prophets...)
I use it since 2003 now. Alongside Pro Tools, it's what i use the most, when i don't mess around with my hardware gear (we'll talk about gear later ).
With time, many improvements occured (audio could be recorded in Reason, sampling too, time-stretch, midi out).
Give it a try at the web site www.propellerhead.se.
If you have any question about it, let me know.
