FL Studio is a full-featured, open architecture, music production environment for audio recording, composing, sequencing and mixing, and the creation of professional quality music. FL Studio is designed for creative freedom.

Our philosophy is that you should only pay for the features you use. FL Studio is a modular environment where you choose the program functions and additional instrument/effect plugins that you need.
We do this by shipping FL Studio in three editions, each with more features and base plugin instruments/effects than the next. Then as an extension to these versions you can add in more instruments/effects and samples to suit your musical style or genre.
The FL Studio program hierarchy can be summarised as follows:
Producer + ALL Plugin - A bundle of Producer Edition + all plugins we have available at the time you purchase your bundle.
Signature - A bundle of Producer Edition + a limited collection of our 'Signature' plugins.
Producer – Full music, audio recording and post-production capability.
Fruity – Music composing and arranging.
FL Extension – Buy access to downloadable plugins in your local music shop.

Try before you buy!
We believe you should test everything FL Studio and plugins have to offer before you hand over any money, and for as long as you want. For that reason the download FL Studio installer gives you FL Studio Producer Edition + ALL Plugin Bundle including most of our additional plugin instruments & effects in a single installer. So keep an eye on the features and plugins that you are using. If you are unsure, click on the feature/plugin and press the F1 key. The help will open and let you know what edition it’s included in (if at all). Demo limitations are few:
You can save projects (for later when you buy FL Studio & plugins), record/render audio and use every feature and plugin in the installer has, if you had bought the lot.
You can’t fully load projects you have saved until you purchase FL Studio and any extra-purchase plugins the demo project contain.
It’s a single download. When you decide to buy, you have already downloaded every instrument you have demoed. Just get your registration key (a few kb) from your account and install it and those features and or plugins will be unlocked from the demo installer. It also means you can manage all your Image-Line software with a single registration key, easy!
NOTE: You may upgrade from one edition to the next at any time, although it’s more cost effective to buy the highest version you will ultimately need (check the shop for upgrade pricing).
