OK, of course I am aware that the topic is very broad but I just want to get some ideas flowing here. I started out playing with Reason 4 on my Mac. It sounded good but for some reason, when I picked up Logic Pro 9, music just started coming out and I was happy with what was coming out. I wrote six songs in Logic and then I felt as though I was getting stagnent with Logic. So, the other day a friend introduced me to FLStudio on PC. I dusted off my old PC and fired FLStudio up. I must say I am getting some good sounds out of FLStudio but I haven't completed anything yet. I want to evaluate a couple more products before I settle down and decide on the DAW that best suits me. But I need some help to filter out the crap. What do other people recommend for creating electronic music (especially ambient/IDM - BOC, Tycho, Proem, Aphex Twin). I don't mind spending the money on a DAW if I can be confident that the product I am using will support what I want to do going in to the future. The things that I am looking for are: good video tutorials available, great out of the box presets, lots of flexibility and flexibility with the synths, easy piano roll editing (FL spanks Logic in this department), great effects, good plugin support (VST+AU would be great, or just VST), good ability to record midi playing from my midi controller, good tools to help with writing drum loops. What are other people saying?
