    "Thought you have created that most unique track using Ableton? Well, think again. Even my most-listened track on SoundCloud (shout out to my classmates!) I discovered I could still further and further improve with Ableton. "

    "In my opinion trap beat isn't too far with dubstep beats. That's why it isn't so hard for me to also do traps here because I've created several dubsteps before using ACID Pro. BTW I won this program in our office raffle hehe"

    "Sonar's interface can take newbs some getting used to. It actually took me a few months before I could be comfortable on this program. I wanted to create trap beats to go along my piano and I'm glad I had Sonar for this."

    "I already have FL for my beats, but I find Reaper as more intuitive when adding enhancements and effects. FL's a bit crowded of an interface for me so Reaper does my desired function quicker for my trap beats. That's my opinion."

    "Yes of course. GB never loses its market when it comes to music creation. I even use this myself to do simple ringtone beats. I'm inclined to do trap beats here because that would be upbeat and easy on the ears."
