WHAT'S NEW
  • Playlist Track Mode - Organize projects and speed workflow by grouping a Channel Instrument, Playlist Track and Mixer track. Changes to the name, color and or icon of any member in the group will ripple throughout the chain. Alternatively, drop instrument and effect plugins or audio files on Playlist Track headers.
  • Tools > Macros > Reset empty playlist tracks - Reset all unused Playlist tracks to default color, icons and name.
  • Improved Audio Recording - Link Playlist Tracks to Mixer Tracks and their input, so audio is recorded to the selected Playlist Track Track. Follow-up recordings are added as sub-tracks of the parent Playlist Track. Armed Input Mixer Tracks now show orange faders to better display their state. Pre/Post Effects Recording - Click the Input Menu icon to choose Pre/Post FX recording.
  • Stepsequencer Channel Looping - Channels in the same Pattern, with shorter lengths, will loop to make up the difference. This restores looping behavior from FL Studio 11, and includes new advanced options, to allow control of per-Pattern, per-Channel looping and loop-length for polyrhythmic patterns.
  • Stepsequencer - The maximum step-count has been increased from 64 to 512.
  • Channel Rack Menu > Set swingmix - Set the Swing Mix control values simultaneously for the selected Channels.
  • Show complete piano roll preview - Channel Rack menu option to show all the notes in patterns, rather than just the number of bars visible in the Stepsequencer.
  • Channel Rack Close icon - Can also be closed with the (Esc) key.
  • Plugin Window- ON (Mute) - Switch has been added to the Wrapper Settings for Instrument and Effects plugins (including Right-click menu options). Mix Level has been added in place of the VOL knob, on the Wrapper Settings, when effects are in use.
  • General Settings - New 'Check for updates' option at startup.
  • Mono export - Mono audio file export.
  • CPU & Memory Panel - 'View FPS' shows the FL Studio GUI frame-rate.
  • Project Information- Extended project statistics (bottom of panel).
  • 55 x "Minimal Kick" Samples - Browser > Packs > Drums > Kicks > Minimal Kick 01 to 55.
  • ZGameEditor Visualizer - Video export wizard (beta).
  • Akai FL Studio FIRE- Stepsequencer-looping workflow enhancements (Set Channel loop-length & burn to Pattern).
See the manual here

A huge thank you for bringing back step sequencer looping and adding features to it. Your efforts will not have been in vain. I swear it.

Yeah, this has always been the main draw to FLS for me - getting ideas quickly going in step sequencer. This update really makes that part of the workflow again really good.
No signature here!

Looking at Youtube videos of experienced FL producers, it's obvious that you can work *extremely* fast in FL Studio.

However every time I try it I feel the same way. It feels like there are a bunch of extra steps compared to a regular DAW, where you just paint/record whatever you want straight into the arrangement without taking any detours to other windows like channel racks or mixers or pattern editors.

Looking good! It's delightful that y'all are implementing the linear DAW features that so many of us have been wanting! I'm waiting for the imminent bugfix update, then will download and take it for a spin.

Fl studio has still the snappiest, easiest and best piano roll.

Im still testing s1. Bitwig and reaper and it us shocking how bad theirs are.
The multitool in fl studio is easy and logic. And this is still missing in the others. Why cant i configure my own tool how it reacts? Etc

Really a pain that in 2018 still nothin reaches fl studio. Too bad fl 20 sucks for me and freezes a lot. Before i had also probs but not like this and instead they add compatibility options etc. They add more shiny options....

Make piano rolls like fl studio @others!!!! And then i guess i dont need to look back anymore

Pretty sure in Reaper at least you can configure it how you like. I've seen people say they can get it exactly like in FL or even better.

What the fastest way to bounce a synth and chop sections to different channels?
