Browser Load-Item Shortcut Keys Survey (win a free plugin!)

AND the winners are...

Dooey123

foxdubs

ThomThom


Users name were placed in an Excel spreadsheet, sorted in alphabetical order and numbered 1 to 415. Winners were selected by the Excel function "=rand()*415" run 3 times.

Thanks everyone for your input.

Regards Scott

This post is associated with the April mail-out. A free plugin of your choice to three lucky winners

Start by watching the video (just part 7) then think about the function keys you want to use to send Browser items to plugins.

We made some changes in the 9.1 Bowser to help users 'browse' presets and samples. That is pressing F5/F6 step back/forward through the Browser item list and load it into the last touched plugin.

We want your input. There are only so many function and other keys to go around, did we make the right decision?

The video has been cued to start in the right spot, so you can see the shortcut in action, or download FL Studio 9.1 and check it out for yourself.

We will give away a 'plugin of your choice' to three randomly chosen winners around May 31.
