This is arguably the KING of the DAWs at this time. FL STUDIO 12 is the latest release from Image-Line and the popularity is at an all time high. FL Studio 12 is used today to produce countless mainstream hits in all genres. It is used by top hip hop producers, such as Metro Boomin and 808 Mafia, all the way to the Electronic world with producers like Deadmau5. Whenever someone wants to jump into the realm of music production and creation, FL would probably be where most would start, and rightly so. The program has grown tremendously and is now right on par with other DAWs, such as Pro Tools or Ableton Live.
