FL Studio 20.5.1 Official Release (30 July 2019 )

FL STUDIO 20.5.1 is a maintenance update for 20.5 that introduced FLEX - an advanced 'production focused' synthesizer built on Subtractive, Wavetable, Multisample, FM & AM synthesis. Plus, as usual, there's lots of workflow enhancements for your favorite DAW...all because we love your Lifetime Free Updates!

Installation - Restart your computer and install this over any previous installation of FL Studio 20. Windows: Make sure the installer is pointing to the same folder as the current FL Studio install, normally C:\Program Files (x86)\Image-Line\FL Studio 20


  • Plugin Manager - Now shows a prompt when the user wants to close the window during a plugin scan.

  • User data - When changing the user data location, FL Studio will offer to copy data from the old to the new location

  • FLEX - Clicking the Pack name will focus the selected preset in the right-list. The 'Online packs' section split into 'For Download' (for free and purchased packs) and 'Store' (for unpurchased packs). Improved errors when downloads fail. Various bugfixes (solving Access Violations/Crashes).

  • Sytrus presets - 64 free presets by Synthwave FLEX library developer Saif Sameer.

  • Wrapper - Added option to allow dropping files on VST and VST3 plugins.

  • ZGE Visualizer - New button to reload images.

  • New demo project - Musata 'Real Bass (Original Mix)' (see video above).

  • General settings - 'Associate project files' was removed from FL Studio for macOS as it only applies to the Windows version.

  • Menu shortcuts - FL Studio for macOS now shows (Opt) instead of (Alt) for keyboard shortcuts.
