Question Film music software

1st post here & dunno if im at the right place but.. :p

first of, I am into film music ( film score ) and I am really looking for a new DAW.
I have been using FL studio just for fun for around 2-3 years now but I am not convinced that FL can provide me with the quality sounds I need for a film score (Orchestra, strings etc) I mean sure FL got some good plugins and effects but IMO FL's mostly capable for making beats, dubstep, house, hip hop etc.

So, now: I wanna get a new music software, DAW or w/e you wanna call it, I got PC and have been looking on both Pro tools 11 and NI's Kontakt + some libraries.

You people have some experience with these softwares or any other? And what can you recommend for making more dramatic/orchestral music. WITH QUALITY, I find FL lack a bit of quality, I really want it to sound professional.

- - -

TL;DR - Having FL studio atm, wanna upgrade to something more film music score friendly with better quality so I've looked into Pro tools and Kontakt/Komplete bundle, anyWhich can get the task done?one got any experience with this?

Thanks! =)

I use a music software from MAGIX called Music Maker. It comes with a lot of great sounds and I also use "Independence", a virtual instrument, also from MAGIX that somes with a lot of cool sounds. As with most DAWS you often require additional sounds that don't come with the software. Virtual Instruments and sample libraries help extend your sonic palette and are necessary to get from 3rd party sources.

I use Fl studio for scoring good sir. All DAW's are generally the same thing, some are just more organized and can support more things than others, for example there is a big difference between Pro Tools and Fl Studio, but down to the basics they do the same thing. For my FL, i have kontakt 5 installed into it and run plug-ins like east west and things like that. you're not limited to FL's native sounds. you can put in whatever vst's you like. however if you really are keen on getting a great DAW for scoring I'd go with Logic or Ableton.
