What to test
We're mostly looking for feedback about some of the major changes in workflow that have been made so far. So please try it out and let us know what you think of how it works. We're not really looking for bug reports, at this time. If you do want to report a bug, please post them in a separate thread in this forum.
This is not a finished version of FL Studio, it's an Alpha, not even a Beta version yet. There will be lots of problems, bugs, crashes etc and it may not be compatible with the final version at all. Many things haven't even been updated from FL Studio 11 yet. The purpose is for workflow testing, not production work. If you don't think you can handle this, please don't install this Alpha version and wait for the FL Studio 12 Betas or the release version of FL Studio 12.
