Which do you prefer reason or fruity loops? I tend to like reason better. Do you agree or disagree?

I suggest you record your guitar parts using a recording software like ableton live or steinberg, or better yet pro-tools. FL and reason are capable of recording live tracks including vocals but they're better mixed with the recording software I mentioned. I also generate beats with reason for guitar-driven songs but I record live parts and do the final mix with steinberg. Anyway, good luck and have a good one.

WIth fruity loops you got vst support so you can use new effects and instruments. reason hasn't got this feature you just have the included stuff and thats it. But reason gives you the option to cabling on your own so you can do really really strange stuff with it! And the workflow in Reason is totally different compared with fl. Just download the demo of both and try out what fits better for your music genre and whats easier to use! I would start with fl because its much easier to use. And when you are able to make music like YOU want (I mean that you can really handle whats coming out) then you can go over to use Reason in FL or even better start with Abelton Live, Cubase, Studio One or what ever ;)

Fruityloops is a great software but its sound quality isn't really professional. If i had to choose seriously between reason and fruityloops, i would choose reason. A new software just came out by Propellerheads, creator of Reason, called Record. This one is worth the try. It has the sound quality and the mixing gear is really professional and it also allows recording audio, which Reason can't. Surely it is more complicated to use than fruityloops euhh FL Studio... The main drawback with Propellerheads softwares is that they can't host VSTi or DXi plugins.. But they work very well as slave mode for other sequencer...

I prefer fruity loops, other than having more features and sound generators there is another reason. Fruity loops has a girl mascot! She looks like anime and very cute. The features can be overwhelming but fruity loops allows you to only see the features you actually use, so the clutter is not a problem.

I suggest you use fl studio 8. Fl is easier to use and has more effects. Reason 4.0 is more difficult but you have to have a MIDI to use Reason 4.0. I use Fl and i only use my computer keyboard because that's all u need, even though u can use a MIDI to make things easier. The drum pattern is better on Fl than Reason. Alot of famous producers like 9th Wonder use Fl, Mysto and Pizzi use Reason.
