2 weeks? I've been playing with Cubase for a couple years and still head for the 670 page manual constantly. Once you get the concept down, through
a LOT of frustration, it's really fun to work with.
With FL, it seems that to get things done, like sidechaining compressors, for instance, is just using workarounds. In FL its easy to use the peak
controller as the compressor threshold adjuster, but to me it still doesn't have the right compressor sound.
Plus, if your not keeping good notes with FL, its so easy to throw the automation off. And linking midi dials to the dials in FL are easy, but
accidentally assign a knob that already has that knob assigned elsewhere is hell to try to figure out what happened when the sound gets out of
FL has taken some notes from Cubase and Pro Tools by implementing the visual graphlike automation lines. I am not badmouthing FL in any way, I use it
extensively, I just have found certain limitations to it once you get fairly advanced with it.
