“A workman is only as good as his tools” the same can be said for music production software. With better and more powerful software you can produce more superior music, with hi-end software like Ableton Live and Reason comes more control, more functionality, and more in-software tools.
There is long been a debate about “Which is the best program to use” and the answer is whichever program works best for you, If you have been creating master pieces in FL Studio for over a decade, there is no real reason to switch and swap between software, most software these days provide a easy upgrade option, giving you the same functionality with the same layout you have grow accustomed to but with updated back-end system. With this in mind all that matters is the final product.
