Fruity Loops Studio Pricing

At the first sight, FL Studio has huge price discounts but the cheappest they are offering is utter crap:

FL Studio Express Edition €31.09    

No Piano roll? Are you kidding me? Looks pretty useless

FL Studio Fruity Edition     €62.82    

Not having ability to edit sound waves is fine.. I can do it in Audacity or in other software..but no automation clips? No, thanks! Good luck trying to sell that to anyone who knows at least a tiny bit about producing... You can upgrade it anytime but I haven't found upgrade pricing..

FL Studio Producer Edition     €126.28    

Looks pretty good because I don't record audio or I can do it outside of FL. Edison and Slicex are really nice and I use them a lot but this is quite a huge price increase just to have those automation clips...

FL Studio Signature Bundle (you save €398.99) €189.75    

Wow, that's a bunch of discounts.. But I am still not sure if I really need that stone age "Sytrus" or some "Hardcore" distortion effects randomly added in the package. Since when "Soundfont Player" is that expensive? I bet I can find something that loads soundfonts for free..

Alright, all in all it's not that bad offer.. Music producing software is pretty expensive everywhere. I still think I would probably get that Producer Edition if I had the money.. :)

As far as the pricing situation goes, its typically go big or go home kinda attitude.

You're actually paying for something worth having when it comes to this.

I think you can kinda hear when the track was produced in FL.

Just my opinion.

Fruity preferable but Express will do you just fine (depending on what you need).
Both are reasonably priced for what they do. Other software you may already have would probably cover most of what's in the more expensive packages.

I recommend using renoise it's not that expensive. There's a lot of programming but once you learn all the codes it's cake. You can probably make anything you want with it!

I agree with Esun I've notice that myself

it does not sound like a beginner's store...

I tried FL, and saw some of the examples bundled with it, and it seems to be a pretty powerful piece of kit for Windows.
I'm completely useless with it though =p
