You're right, it doesn't matter as long as it sounds good. But the debate at hand is whether or not some beats have an FL sound or not. The answer is yes. A lot of people can use FL and you'd never know. I'd never guess Alex da Kid used FL until I read it somewhere. But when you hear Boi-1da's beats, they have that "FL sound". Even just the way his stuff is programmed. If you use FL then you should understand what I'm saying. That's not to say they're not dope, or that it even matters because the general public doesn't know the difference...but I'm just saying. Someone explained this well on another forum "He uses off time shifted hihats alot more than 32 count hihats. He uses more pattern based melodies than full lenghth stuff. No changeups, just drop outs and pop ins...but in Boi 1da's situation, if you had said he used anything else, I woulda thought, Damn, sounds like FL to me.". This has nothing really to do with the music itself, but these are some of the reasons why it's obvious to FL users that he uses FL... and this is what we're discussing. Once again..plenty of people use FL and use it in a way where it would be hard to actually pinpoint and say that FL is being used.
