FL Studio 21.2 Beta 2 with FL Cloud [18 Sept 2023]

BETA 3 NOW HERE <-- This is a link, click it!

Welcome to the FL Studio 21.2 Beta 2 with FL Cloud, Stem Separation, Kepler and more ...

We’re excited to announce FL Cloud. To speed up your workflow, reduce distractions and provide more time to stay in the creative zone FL Cloud integrates online sound libraries, content, tools and services directly into FL Studio.

In the first Beta we started with a large library of loops and samples which can be found under the new SOUNDS tab in the browser. As a follow-up we are now adding FL Cloud Mastering (further details below). We consider FL Cloud an ever-evolving offering and will continue to expand it over time and during the beta-phase.

Full access to FL Cloud is free during the Beta and you can keep what you download. After the official release FL Cloud will be available to all FL Studio users in the following ways:
  • Free - FL Cloud will include access to a library of free sounds in the new Sounds tab that will be constantly updated. It will also include an entry version of the newly introduced FL Cloud Mastering service.
  • One-off purchases - Buy credit-packs, as a one-off purchase, and get full access to the complete sound library with a set number of non-expiring download credits.
  • Subscription - Unlimited access to the constantly growing full sound library along with the extended feature set of FL Cloud Mastering. No credits or other virtual currencies will be required.
About subscriptions - As this is the first mention of 'subscriptions' in association with the FL Studio brand, I want to take this opportunity to re-state that FL Studio will always be available for outright purchase and will always include Lifetime Free Updates (LFU) when purchased. We have worked hard for over 25 years to maintain trust in the LFU promise. FL Cloud and any optional subscriptions to the content and services it provides will not replace FL Studio’s Lifetime Free Updates business model, now or in future. LFU is part of our company culture and DNA and no one will be forced into a subscription to use FL Studio.

As we are planning to expand FL Cloud with more online-connected features and services we will always attempt to provide free versions alongside any paid feature where possible.

Please try FL Cloud and the other new features in FL Studio 21.2 and let us know what you think. We’d be happy to know what content, features, services and/or tools you would like to see next.

This is a Beta test version and it is not an official release. Betas have more bugs, are more likely to crash and may include unfinished features. If you use a Beta for mission critical work, you do so at your own risk! This will install in parallel to the official release version and will not overwrite any critical files if you use the default installation settings.
