FL Studio is great for producing dubstep music
FL Studio is one of the best dubstep maker software of all time.
You can become a sick dubstep maker with fruity loops.
The primary reason why FL studio is great for producing the best dubstep music is simply that it has so many plugins available.
In terms of software plugins - FL studio floors Ableton Live and Garageband.
The reason why the FL studio plugins make producing dubstep a game-changer is because dubstep is prone to adding experimental sounds.
Plugins allow more malleability for your sound.
The dubstep music genre is extremely versatile!
Even the best dubstep music from years ago sounds totally different compared to the dubstep music you hear now.
Performing dubstep music in Ableton live
One benefit of using Ableton live is a fact that you can present electronic music at a concert!
The electronic music industry is huge when it comes to performing live events!
Ableton Live is software design for you to add effects and flip your track while it's still playing.
FL Studio does not come anywhere near Ableton Live in this regard.
One thing to keep in mind is that dubstep music is bound to have large changes in dynamics and sound style.
For hip hop music then you wouldn't necessarily care to remix the song while live, but electronic music thrives in remixes.
Just look at this video of Kanye remixing a track live:

An awesome MIDI pad while using the GarageBand dubstep maker is the IK Multimedia iRig Pads MIDI Groove Controller.
