This seems to come up a lot.
I have hit a snag - basically i have chosen FL Studios as my DAW of choice as i have tried a few (not all, just the ones in my budget ) and feel the most comfortable in that DAW. My first question is that - am i making a mistake by choosing FL Studios for game composing? (Havnt purchased yet) - because i have looked through various job sites for companies etc and they all state Pro Tools, Logic etc etc. Is FL Studios still a DAW for game composing or best if i move away now and use another one? Reason why i like FL Studios is all the plugins it has, alot of different things you can play around with - what other DAW would be the closest in terms of i guess "third" party plugins and amount of addons you can play around with?
I've never really used FL Studio, but every MIDI controller sends the same data, so they're all compatible with any DAW once you've set them up the way you want them to work. Some have extra features like Novation's Automap, but basically any controller that feels okay will do.
I have chosen a few different midi controllers and wanted to look at the MPK49 - but its not fully compatible with FL Studios (due to the presets it dosnt have) and you have to link alot of the effects and other things to it - is there another keyboard that others recommend? How is the QX49, or even the Oxygen 49? Are they compatible with most (especially FL Studios)?
