FL Studio 20.8 [BETA 4] (16 Nov 2020)

This is the FOURTH Beta for FL Studio 20.8. We will be adding some more features over the coming beta updates.

INSTALLERS
WHAT'S NEW

  • Merge Automation Clips - Selected Automation Clips can now be merged using the Playlist Edit menu.
  • Sampler / Audio Clip Channels - New Cut and Paste options from the Preview Window (Right-Click) options menu.
  • Control Surface / Patcher - Copy existing controls with a (Right-Click) 'Duplicate' option.
  • Frequency Splitter - Split and process audio into 2 or three bands using Linear Phase or Low Latency filters from -6 dB to 96 dB Octave.
  • Fruity Parametric EQ 2 - New Linear Phase mode with artifact free high slew-rate modulation capability, Band Mute switches, Solo bands, improved Finite Impulse Response (FIR) down sampling filter and updated UI including Phase Rotation display, Mid/Side/L/R frequency visualization monitoring.
  • Maximus - Added Linear Phase filter mode.
  • FLEX - New Browser with three layout modes for improved visual discovery. Added and arpeggiator switch. For some presets allows turning their Arpeggiator(s) off. This will turn orange when the option is available.
  • Transistor Bass - Added V3 TB303 cutoff range based on our best science! Our mostest accurate emulation of a real TB303 ever.
  • ZGE Visualizer - Drag and drop content on the Main Editor window to create Videos and Image layers. Option to 'Save still image' to a custom size. Dragging and dropping image or video files on the plugin creates a Layer. NVIDIA accelerated CODEC now used to MP4 video generation (Windows only).
  • Language Support - Support for additional display languages: Chinese. More languages to come soon, see the forum here.
  • Glitch free plugin loading - FL Studio audio is less likely to be interrupted while loading plugins. NOTE: If a plugin introduces processing latency, then audio glitches can't be avoided.
  • Automation Clips - Increased precision for control and parameter automation. Added a Channel Rack & Picker Panel (Right-Click) Automation Clip 'Clone with links' to clone Automation Clips with their original links.
  • Initialized Controls - Added a (Right-Click) option 'Delete initial value' to remove initialized values from initialized/automated controls.
  • Video Player & ZGE Visualizer - Reduced CPU usage during video playback. Video is now preloaded to memory for improved performance and synchronization.
  • Wrapper > Troubleshooting - Separated problem solving options from the Processing tab and added 'Fast idle' option to increase the frame rate for some plugin editor windows.
  • File size warning - Set the maximum size a FL Studio (.flp) project will save, before warning you about the size of the file.
  • Options requiring restart - FL Studio will automatically restart (with dialog) instead of just closing when using option that require restart such as Scaling, Language or User Data location. Yay!
  • Diagnostic - Now includes the most recent crash logs in its report.
