    Lost in what DAW to use, please help

    I have been working with FL Studio for about 4 months now, and I know a lot about it and can focus on the music making as opposed to how to do something. I am thinking down the road I will want to perform live and FL Studio won't do anything for me in this regards (with the exception of the new 'Performance Mode' which looks like shit). Before I become entrenched in FL, I think I should move on to a new DAW for live performances and music making. Ableton Live? Logic? Cubase? Any direction you guys can point me in would be great. Thanks.

    P.S. I make electronic music and rely heavily on routing mixer effects to different soft synth's I have made (if that is any help in helping me)

    Hello There I had the same problem once. I was using FL for a long time and i couldnt do anything with it... FL is not user friendly, and u have many poped windows and a mixer wich u need to get a track to and the put wffect or plugins. This shitty. I changed DAW to ABLETON LIVE 8 and it was like a gift from God everything is clean simple and u can do everything with ableton stock instruments and effects. U realy will be satisfied with live!! Artists like Celldweller, Dada Life, Skrillex, Killbot use Live. Trust Me Ableton is the Best! Sorry for my English I'm from Poland

    I hear a lot of good stuff about ableton in live performance. I haven't met another DAW then Reason that pleases me though. Reason is a beast!
    Just check the artist reviews for it:
    Artist Features - YouTube

    Tbh, if you already know some stuff about FL, i'd stick with FL, but if that really doesn't do it in live, you'd need something else then I guess.
