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

  1. Update FL Studio - Before anything else, download and install the latest version of FL Studio from here. Your bug may be fixed already!
  2. Update macOS - Are you using AT LEAST the last version of macOS High Sierra (10.13.6). Mojave and Catalina are also good.
  3. 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.
  4. Screenshots - Another great way to demonstrate issues. See how here. Include images using the 'Attachments' tab, at the bottom of the post edit window.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

Use the OR download a new FLRegkey.Reg from your account.

  • Playlist Track Mode - Organize projects and speed workflow by grouping a Channel Instrument, Playlist Track and Mixer track. Changes to the name, color and or icon of any member in the group will ripple throughout the chain. Alternatively, drop instrument and effect plugins or audio files on Playlist Track headers.
  • Tools > Macros > Reset empty playlist tracks - Reset all unused Playlist tracks to default color, icons and name.
  • Improved Audio Recording - Link Playlist Tracks to Mixer Tracks and their input, so audio is recorded to the selected Playlist Track Track. Follow-up recordings are added as sub-tracks of the parent Playlist Track. Armed Input Mixer Tracks now show orange faders to better display their state. Pre/Post Effects Recording - Click the Input Menu icon to choose Pre/Post FX recording.
  • Stepsequencer Channel Looping - Channels in the same Pattern, with shorter lengths, will loop to make up the difference. This restores looping behavior from FL Studio 11, and includes new advanced options, to allow control of per-Pattern, per-Channel looping and loop-length for polyrhythmic patterns.
  • Stepsequencer - The maximum step-count has been increased from 64 to 512.
  • Channel Rack Menu > Set swingmix - Set the Swing Mix control values simultaneously for the selected Channels.
  • Show complete piano roll preview - Channel Rack menu option to show all the notes in patterns, rather than just the number of bars visible in the Stepsequencer.
  • Channel Rack Close icon - Can also be closed with the (Esc) key.
  • Plugin Window- ON (Mute) - Switch has been added to the Wrapper Settings for Instrument and Effects plugins (including Right-click menu options). Mix Level has been added in place of the VOL knob, on the Wrapper Settings, when effects are in use.
  • General Settings - New 'Check for updates' option at startup.
  • Mono export - Mono audio file export.
  • CPU & Memory Panel - 'View FPS' shows the FL Studio GUI frame-rate.
  • Project Information- Extended project statistics (bottom of panel).
  • Sampler Channels & Audio Clips - The 'Time' knob is now automatable when the 'Mode' is set to a realtime algorithm (Resample or Stretch).
  • 55 x "Minimal Kick" Samples - Browser > Packs > Drums > Kicks > Minimal Kick 01 to 55.
  • ZGameEditor Visualizer - Video export wizard (beta).
  • Akai FL Studio FIRE- Stepsequencer-looping workflow enhancements (Set Channel loop-length & burn to Pattern).
