I ACKNOWLEDGE THAT the purpose of public betas is to test future official FL Studio release versions. PUBLIC BETAS EXPIRE in order to encourage users to download the next beta (if available) and continue testing. I WILL NOT rely on Public Betas for any time or project critical work. I realize a new beta may not be immediately available when this one expires. If I complain when a public beta expires, stops working or crashes I can expect to be taunted by Image-Line staff and fellow users for ignoring every attempt to educate me as to the potential issues when using an FL Studio beta.
You download the FL Studio 10.8 Public Beta HERE (249MB). Expires on 1 December, 2012. Put this in your calendar.
You can download a new regcode (either from your user account or from FL's own about box) to register BassDrum and GMS.
