We know it's frustrating when things don't work as expected. However, please help us to help you by following these suggestions:

  1. Update - Before trying anything else. Download and install the latest version of FL Studio from here. Your bug may be fixed already!
  2. Update plugins - If you are using 3rd party plugins. Look at crash logs for their names. Install the latest version for any you spot. See also Plugins Behaving Badly
  3. Simple clear explanation - Explain what you are doing, or trying to do, and exactly what is happening.
  4. Update macOS - Are you using AT LEAST the last version of macOS High Sierra (10.13.6). Expect some issues if you updated to a brand new Major macOS release.
  5. Specific information - a) FL Studio version & build number, b) what you are doing and what happens exactly, c) step-by-step instructions how reproduce the problem.
  6. Screenshots - Another great way to demonstrate issues. See how here. Include images using the 'Attachments' tab, at the bottom of the post edit window.
  7. A video - The best way of demonstrating many issues - Use QuickTime as shown here. Include videos to your post from the 'Attachments' tab, at the bottom of the post edit window.
  8. Use English - Google Translate your post. Short simple sentences in your original language translate best. We are happy to work this way, no need to worry.

FL Studio (20.9.2.2670) [Apple Silicon] r26855 has encountered an error and needs to restart.

Crash log saved to /Users/oribeneishai/Documents/Image-Line/FL Studio/Support/Logs/Crash/ folder.

Please use Cmd+C to copy this message and report to support.

Exception:
Unable to open file "/Users/oribeneishai/Documents/Image-Line/FL Studio/Settings/Note color presets/Auto saved.ncp": Operation not permitted
Callstack:
Hi,
please make sure FL Studio has the permission to access the Documents folder:
Open Systemsettings> Security&Privacy> Privacy> Files and Folders> "Documents Folder" and set a mark at (or add) FL Studio.
Then delete the Auto saved.ncp file from the location:
"/Users/(Your Username)/Documents/Image-Line/FL Studio/Settings/Note color presets/Auto saved.ncp" and start FL Studio.

-From FL Studio Won't Open / FL Studio Won't Start

Else, try without opening FL Studio and navigate to
Finder> Applications> FL Studio.app right-click & select "Show package contents">
Contents> Resources> FL> System> Tools> Diagnostics> open fldiagnostic and start Troubleshooting (Reset DPI scaling)

Please let us know if this works!?

Also, since you are using an Apple M1 device, please have a look at this article in the Knowledge Base and follow the instructions to switch to Rosetta mode:
FL Studio Apple Silicon Computer Compatibility / ARM Support / M1/M2 Chip
This is necessary due to most of the 3rd party plugins not being Silicon ready/compatible
and gaining microphone & documents access permission in macOS.

After switching, please rescan your plugins in Plugin Manager.
Use the following settings:
Verify plugins
Rescan previously verified plugins
Rescan plugins with errors.
disable/uncheck "Combine VST and VST3 versions of a plugin"


Please remember to rescan the Plugin Manager, every time after switching between Rosetta<>Silicon mode or installing new plugins!
(this is neccessary to identify the plugins for the mode - Intel/Silicon- native).
