Heya and welcome aboard.
While I do not use FL, I’ve had many friends and family who love it.
A young cousin who recently got into producing (and now is in college studying production & music business) uses FL. I would like to offer you a bit of advice I told him, which he sort of brushed away.
Learn the plug-ins that are provided in FL! Particularly Harmor as it has some spectacular features that you would need to buy all sorts of stuff to do what it does! It’s so great for designing industrial and metallic/mechanical sounds!!!
Also, gross beat, and soooo many other plugins that are native to FL have me drooling…I am a logic pro, pro tools, Ableton trainer (also use a bit of hardware, including a Eurorack)…so I don’t actually have experience with FL, but can only implore you to make the most out of its native assets.
My cousin instead wanted me to give him copies of Serum, u-he plugs, Acoustica stuff, Arturia, and for me to sample all sorts of things from hardware for him…hope ya take this advice for what it’s worth…
Be a great day
