Agreed Colmon although most would rather die than admit they have or do still use fruity loops. I think it's kick a*s that Daft Punk uses fruity loops. I as well have used fruity loops in my project and as a sketch pad of sorts for ideas that I can implement in other DAWs. Or, if I can't recreate what I liked in FL with one of my other DAWs, I can just export it as WAV and send it to another DAW. FL is a highly underrated program. It's not like it's a horrible interface or to simplistic. It actually improves the beginner in many areas of their production skills as well as remind the seasoned veterans of how much cool stuff you can create in FL.

I don't get all this 'its awesome that they use x'.. why is it awesome that they use one and not the other? At the end of the day the mixer is just a standard mixer and the sequences are just standard sequences.. the fact that they used a particular DAW has no impact on the resulting music

I also don't get why FL users act like they are downtrodden.. people used to diss FL because FL used to be s**t, but nobody cares anymore

fruityloops, like most music software, hardware synths and pretty much anything you can make music on, is (was) only as "s**t" as the musician using it

I've never really used FL, but will when it is ported to the iPad :) (well, have to get an iPad first)

"people used to diss FL because FL used to be s**t, but nobody cares anymore.."

I think people care. Thus, this thread. It's been, and may still be, seen as an entry level tool.
I don't know if it will ever shake that stigma. You expect a group as...experienced/full-of-resources to be using something that...oh I don't know....matches their level of fame/success.

Like LOGIC. :roll:

Like the perception of Logic users. "Oh Logic is so deep and complicated" "You must be a power user"
Plus there's the coolness of belonging to an exclusive club. Like they must use something obscure or custom-made or even no longer in existence. That's future-retro.

Surprising to see them using such commonly found tools.

There is some truth to the "it doesn't matter" argument. Ever since the popularization of VSTs all the DAWs sort of have a level playing field for the hobbiest who doesn't care about internal mixing precision as much as the major workflow paradigm differences between each choice

Alright, my saying it's kick a*s that Daft Punk uses FL wasn't a props to them for using FL instead of another DAW. I just meant that I think it's cool that as major players in the DJ/crossover artist realm that they still dabble in FL was all. I also agree that it doesn't matter at all what DAW you're using as long as the music isn't "s**t" that you create with it. Having said that, I still find FL to be a nice sketch pad like I said before. If you don't use something because you think, "Oh, that's too basic for me." Or "s**t, that's too complex for me to figure out." You're limiting yourself to one avenue at that point right? It's better to be able to draw from a well of knowledge based on using every type of DAW you can get your hands on. Just like hardware.

i've noticed that (weird)kind of pattern with them in the past with samples that really don't stray far off of the original.

I'd agree with that statement if it had been prefaced with:

"The music created within..."
