Some people prefer TC electronic reverbs I know Opphoi did like them, I know Robert Rich and I think also Loren Nerell like Sony reverbs.
I like them all.
In my studio I have TC Electronics, Sony, Lexicon, Ursa Major, Roland, and Alesis reverbs. I have hardware and software tools. To me whatever works is worth using. So old school is fine, if you feel comfortable working that way then go ahead. Recording FX with the instruments is fine if that's how you like to work, that's how some people like to do it, nothing wrong with it.
As for DAWs, none of them are really designed for doing ambient music, and most of us use whatever we feel comfortable using. I mainly use Logic Studio, if I am doing a long drone piece then I just turn off the metronome and let it go. I've never used FL Studio but most of the people I know who use it are doing more beat driven stuff. Some people are just not comfortable with computers, A Produce mainly used ADATs or burned stuff directly to CDr, his concession to hard disc recording was purchasing a Korg Oasys keyboard workstation. So if a DAW is just too much then go with something else.
