FL Studio by a landslide.
Why? Because every producer who once used it who's got a Mac still uses some wierd hybrid process to run it on their Mac other than the ones who settle for Reason, Ableton, or Logic and whine about what's lacking while pretending to be happy with their "upgrade".
It's sound is dominant in the music world right now.
Ableton has Skrillex for ambitious users to look up to.
Logic and Pro Tools has guys who use tons of outboard gear.
But as far as "in the box" producers in the game...FL Studio hands down by a landslide. Majority of the FL guys(Lex, Tone P, Kardiak, Kane, ect)have Macs all around them, still manage to soley work in FL. That says alot.
I've spent the entire time I've been on a Mac looking for an alternative and come to realize the guys who jump ship more than likely never utilized all the features of FL in the 1st place. I'm not even being biased, i don't want to use FL on my iMac with maxed out Ram, that's working backwards IMO, but I'm seeing why others do more and more.
The arguement against the program is FL makes things "easy"...why would anyone want them to be "hard"? The arguement against it kind of proves it's worthy of it's place in the game.
Two things that annoy me are people who are positive out of ignorance, and people who are negative out of bitterness. People who are neither usually get along with me and agree with most of what I say. People who are one of the 2 think I'm the other.
but HONESTLY...who uses ALL of the features of ANY audio app?
a D.A.W. is VAST

It's sound is not dominant. No DAW has a sound.
Choosing Reason or Logic Pro is not "settling". By definition to settle for something means to fail. I've yet to see Hans Zimmer, Trent Reznor or any other the real "Big Dogs" use FL Studio.
Skrillex uses Ableton for the same reason everyone else picks it. Because it's easy to learn and use.
Logic does not have guys who run tons of outboard gear. Did you even do any kind of research before you posted? Lady Gaga's producer RedOne use Logic, a laptop and some headphones. Zero plugins or outboard gear. Even when he's in a big studio. Everything is ITB.
No, FL Studio does not have more ITB producers. You're just partial to FL Studio so you named the ones that do use it.
You obviously haven't spent enough time on a Mac or you're just plain inexperience to know the difference. Who's jumping ship back to FL Studio? I can give you a list of famous die hard users who swear by Logic or Pro Tools. And trust me, it will fill up an entire page.
FL Studio is a good program, don't get me wrong. But it is FAR from being the holy grail of DAWs as you make it out to be. Get a little bit more experience under your belt and you'll see what I'm talking about.
i used to love using FL for making tunes because i was able to work so fast in it, but the mixer was the biggest reason i went to reaper. i record everything through a yamaha mixer and changed my soundcard only to find out it doesnt support asio. that basically ruled out recording in FL so tried reaper and the same setup worked without any problems.
also i had problems with plugins not working in FL when they were perfect in reaper. i eventually had enough of FL and stopped using it but i still have it installed so i can access old projects and patches.
its all about what you use and how you use it to your advantage. I personally like Ableton a lot because of the control I have over my samples and how everything sequences tempo wise as well. There is nothing better than ableton daw wise right now to me.
