The Convo reverb is very nice, but it uses tons of CPU (all conco rev do)
But for sidechaining, NOTHING is as good as the Limiter. (once you learn how to get it set up right)

I like FL Studio native plugins a lot (especially Delay Bank, Flangus, Limiter, Love Philter, PEQ2, Reeverb2, Stereo Enhancer, Stereo Shaper and Waveshaper). They are easy to use with loooooow CPU usage. Therefore I use them in every project!

I used a pretty good mix of native FL plugins and VSTs, until I switched to Maschine. Some of those native plugins are very solid, and I had to go hunting for replacements.

I still haven't found good substitutes for some of the more unique effects, or generators for that matter.

On the other hand, I don't really consider the native plugins adequate for algorithmic reverb, bitcrushing, delay modulation (chorus/flanger/phaser) or dub delay, and while the waveshaper is pretty good there are much better distortion options out there.

Major benefit is it seems to use less cpu. I've done both and prefer Limiter.

Their newer EQ has excellent workflow. Which is a big deal when EQ'ing a high number of tracks. For some reason I have always liked their ancient plugin Flangus.
