FL Studio 12 Alpha Preview

THIS PREVIEW HAS EXPIRED - an update will be released 'when its ready' ;)

This is an INCOMPLETE (for example, the Mixer is not updated yet) Alpha version of what will become FL Studio 12. For example the Mixer isn't updated yet.

READ ALL BELOW BEFORE INSTALLING

Image

The MIXER shown below is not yet available





How to install

1. Download the installer (version 11.5.8 | ~320MB) (NOTE: this version has expired now)

2. Run the installer and follow instructions

The FL 12 Alpha It will install, by default, to a new folder. DO NOT install it to your FL Studio 11 folder! DO NOT save any pre FL Studio 12 projects with it unless you have backups!



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.

Disclaimer

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.

What's new?

A lot, but here's some of the key new changes so far...

  • Browser - The Browser has changed (now with category tabs and the ability to delete content on right-click)
  • Channel Menu - The Channel Options Menu has moved from the Toolbar Menus to the Channel rack.
  • Channel settings - Have been integrated into the Plugin Wrapper.
  • Interface - Vectorial user interface. See Options > General Settings > GUI display.
  • Per Channel Swing - The Channel Settings now has a 'swing multiplier' amount.
  • Pattern Menu - The Pattern Menu has moved from the Channel rack to the Toolbar Menu and Pattern Selector.
  • Piano roll - Piano roll Auto-zoom can now we deselected from Settings > General > Auto zoom in piano roll
  • Playlist - Multiple drag and drop for audio files onto Playlist (from a Windows file browser).
  • Stepsequencer - Stepsequences are now interchangable with Piano rolls.
  • VST Plugins - VST plugin installation has changed.
