Although you rectified this comment later on I still want to comment on this.
What people seem to miss is that what they consider a good or the best DAW, heavily depends on their workflow and how they make music.
Allot of people work with real instruments recording tracks, that's way Pro-Tools is such a big player. because from what I've read it has pretty much the best out of the the box workflow, tools and plugins for this.
But what people using DAWs as recording tools for voices and real instruments don't understand. Is that they're also people who mainly use midi recording/programming to make their music. That's why there's so much un-necessary battles/beefs about what DAW is best.
And when it comes to Midi-programming, FL studio is very very good!! The interface and workflow for this is just super nice! In my opinion they have the best piano roll workflow (except for renaming their timestamps to steps instead of 4/4 etc.
So long story short: People should take in account what other people use their DAW for (and personal workflow prefs ofcourse) instead of self-projecting it and and calling it bad or what ever.
I'm loving CakeWalk so far. And the pano-roll (although a bit quirky with zoom sometimes) is pretty awesome to.
The way I work I think that Studio-One would be the best fit for me. (I mostly do midi recording/programming)
I'm also curious to see if NI's Komplete Kontrol S88 MK2 Can properly work in CakeWalk.
Maybe it's worth looking in to Arturia's Keylab 88 MKII (they also have a black version now)
Although I really like how NI's board looks especially with those screens and LED lights and full integration with their plugins, for me the better choice would be Arturia's Keylab series because of their focus on DAW control as opposed to plugins control. that said arturia does offer a nice plugins control feature, even for 3d parties.
And personaly I also like that it comes with drum pads.
