Maybe if your room is a pig sty, then it's not a good browser...
FL's browser is as simple as it gets....it's right there and left click for preview. Done.
+1 for Foobar for a dedicated solution.
''Hat'' was an arbitrary example.
Maybe a better example would be something like ''waves''. I'm making a carribean/steel drum type beat and I want my intro to have the sound of waves in the sea.
**** knows where I would have a wave sound, but I'm sure I'll have one somewhere in the multitude of packs I have. I know what I'll do, I'll just search ''waves'' and see what comes up.
Oh wait, I can't...
I'm not knocking FL as it's my favourite DAW, but the bottom line is, the browser falls way behind of rival DAWs like Ableton and Pro Tools (reworked PT 11 browser is MUCH better than PT10 browser btw).
Back on topic, I still recommend Ableton or Maschine. Pretty sure you could just use Ableton in demo mode to optimise the use of the browser instead of having to buy it outright.
