WE NEED DETAILS!

We appreciate your frustration when things don't work as you expected. However, please help us to help you by following these suggestions:

  1. Simple clear explanation - Explain what you are doing, or trying to do, and exactly what is happening.
  2. Update - Before trying anything else. Download and install the latest version of FL Studio from here. Your bug may be fixed already!
  3. Update macOS - Are you using AT LEAST the last version of macOS High Sierra (10.13.6). Mojave and Catalina are also good.
  4. 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.
  5. Screenshots - Another great way to demonstrate issues. See how here. Include images using the 'Attachments' tab, at the bottom of the post edit window.
  6. 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.
  7. 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 12 Native macOS 32 Bit ALPHA 0.9S (Updated 9-June-2017)

The 32 BIT macOS Installer is now obsolete (see below) - This the 32 Bit version was retired July-14-2017.

ALPHA Software is for TESTING & SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT, not time-critical music production. It may crash or behave in unexpected ways. Alpha software is missing features. HOWEVER as we are getting close to Beta, it is working well enough for test.

32 BIT version - At launch FL Studio on Mac will only be available as a 64 Bit application, in line with Apple's announcements for macOS 11 running only 64 Bit Applications.


Get the 64 Bit installer here

Requirements:

1. OSX 10.10 or later (older OS will probably run into user interface issues)
2. You must be admin user to install and run

Notable things that DO NOT WORK yet:

    HOW TO INSTALL

    1. The last public installer for macOS 32 Bit FL Studio was - 0.9S Available Here, this will not be developed further.

    2. Install the latest FLStudio_OSX.dmg from above (Cmd+Click / Right-click / Two-finger tap > Open on the DMG)

    HOW TO UNLOCK/REGISTER YOUR INSTALLATION

    Open the About Box from the ? > About Menu at the top left. Enter your Image-Line account email + password then click Unlock (the same login details as you used for this forum)

    OR

    Unlock FL Studio by saving your 'FLRegkey.Reg' file to ../Users/[your user folder]/Library/Preferences/Image-Line. The Library folder is hidden by default in the Finder (you have to right click the user folder, click 'presentation options' and select 'show library folder'). You may need to create the Image-Line destination folder.
