Ok. guess I will give it another shot. Hopefully will be more stable on my setup. FWIW, I really like the DAW and the product, it was just unstable as hell on my OS X system.

FOR ME, It’s changed a lot. It’s stable now and I’m slowly starting to rediscover the program. Can’t promise it will be the same for you but for me it’s working just like the windows version does.

They’ve added so much cool stuff it’s hard to
believe how far they’ve come. To be fair FL hasn’t been a “toy” since 2003 but it’s now REALLY not a toy. The improvements have been fantastic and the program is adding things people have wanted so badly for years.

Any update on the Flex editor however?
Could recall they were debating releasing the Full FLEX engine as a separate (paid) plugin. But I lost track with that.

Still no send to hardware plugin like in reaper (‘Realnsert’). FL makes this process a pain.

Accept it and use a different tool for those.

Looks like a great update, with lots of "small" but useful additions.

Hopefully one of those days they'll re-do the GUI and hid all of the drill-down menus somewhere, exposing just the contextualy relevant stuff.

Quite a few interesting features. I hope they've fixed the audio bug that adds silence to the beginning of exported audio clips that was introduced when they fixed the other audio issues.

The Euclidean Rhythms generator might get me using the step sequencer again - haven't touched it since the introduction of the piano roll.

Export playlist tracks to audio will be a useful feature for me. Very excited by that.

Burn MIDI is a feature that I know a lot of people have been waiting for.

I'm less excited by the method used to integrate audio warping. It should be directly in the playlist or a method should be provided to visualise the waveform alongside others. Other than that, it looks good and I'll be interested to try it out.

Surprised there aren't any new distortion algorithms in the distortion plugin. Disappointed by that but maybe it will be expanded in future.

It does include all the algorithms from Harmor, that you previously didn't have access to ...

Harmor - Classic, Flathat, Cube, Log, Softsat, Rubber, Ribbon, Sincrush, Bitcrush and Bitjam

and absolutely new ...

Wave folder (zero crossing distortion) - Aperture and Abrasive.
