Image-Line News


You can find FL Studio 8.5 (Beta 4) in your account (Fruity Edition & boxed users as well).

It will expire on the 20th of July and we'll post a new on by then (not as copy protection but to make
sure people test/use the new beta's and don't complain about fixed bugs).

Here are the issues fixed between beta 3 & beta 4:


  • Updated to LAME 3.98.2.
  • Improved playlist mouse wheel scrolling.
  • Right-clicking the playlist clip focus button brings a list of either audio, automation or pattern clip sources.
  • Improved "split mixer tracks" rendering filename management.
  • Edison: new "natural weighting" & improved "natural scale" for better spectral display, as well as new (slow) high quality mode that brings both time & frequency accuracy (especially in natural scale mode).
  • PEQ2, Wave Candy & FL now use natural weighting for their spectral display.
  • Added note helping lines in piano roll when notes are played.
  • Improve envelope editor's envelope smoothing tool & decimation tool.
  • New envelope filter tool in envelope editor.
  • Wave Candy: improved scale feature, and added piano kb helper to spectral display.
  • Fruity Reeverb 2: added option to process side.
  • Improved mixer's input "automap" feature (doesn't map mono inputs, and doesn't route them to master to avoid feedback).
  • Updated scripting engine used by Edison scripts (should allow VB scripts now).
  • Wrapper: now reports the sound device's i/o latency to the plugin
  • FPC: layer shows newly added item (i.e. scrolls to it)
  • FL Keys: high notes are now always decayed on release, instead of released immediately

    Implemented & removed:
  • Right-clicking playlist items no longer deletes them (hold halt to do so). (thrown, user complaints)
  • Can now middle-click working area to "pan" plugin windows (ONLY plugins, as it's designed for oversized VST's). (thrown, too many annoyances)

  • Wave Candy: Auto visual mode state now properly restored, some other bugfixes.
  • Slit pattern by channel now preserves pattern's beats per bar setting.
  • Fixed some common window-related weirdness (windows covering others while they shouldn't, etc).
  • Fixed troubles with snapping grid with specific PPQ settings.
  • Fixed minor bug in envelope smoothing tool.
  • Edison: fixed problem when reloading a state that had envelopes not mixed down.
  • Fixed problem with FL's hint bar sometimes not refreshing when loading things.


  • added control to set maximum release time for sampled notes
  • implemented new downloader interface, modeless
  • click on empty area in scrollbar(s) to go to that position
  • Updated CT dll
  • Reduced max polyphony to 256 to reduce cpu usage when idle
  • cache results of product code registration check to speed it up a bit
  • implemented ilreg system
  • improved filter speed
  • only filter when filter text is at least 3 characters
  • Implemented delete, move up and move down for items in manager's list
  • ToxicBio, Sawer and Morphine downloads can now also be downloaded from the selector (if the plugin is installed!)
  • improved "last view" behaviour a little bit
  • flush plugin if a sampled note didn't reach silence
  • all zone parameters are now changed for all selected zones, when "current selection" switch is on
  • mod reset now works for multiple selected zones
  • fixed the way a soundfont property was counted on import
  • Overwrite existing wave files when sampling a vst (but only .wav files)
  • make sure the samplerate is sent to the plugin before processing a vst plugin
  • DW no longer steals keyboard focus, except for edit controls
  • Loading a DWB file now tries to load a sample from file if it's not in the DWB
  • DWB files now save a reference to the file instead of the sample data when total recall is off
  • fixed acm import - sample length wasn't adjusted after conversion (was sometimes less than predicted)
  • Fixed mouse position inaccuracy for pitch bend and mod sliders (multi tab)
  • put critical section for sample preview slightly earlier

  • store location in global registry during installation, instead of just in local registry
  • fixed some crashes when the downloader couldn't find the download dll
  • selection window now has minimum size
  • fixed bug that caused downloads to start again after being finished
  • fixed download location calculation in manager

  • Ampersand was shown as a shortcut underline in the options window (info section)
  • Fixed a bug loading Arturia AnalogFactory settings
  • midi port changes after a plugin was dragged didn't make the wrapper ask the host to enable midi input
  • Added code to load shell plugins from different filename than when they were saved
  • use different way to determine if a plugin is VST1 or not
  • removed first check for value of FruityPlug in UpdateSize to make sure editor size is updated when loading the plugin fails
  • don't get parameter labels and value for shell plugin (waveshell) to prevent crash
  • fixed buffer (effect version) now doesn't zero output buffer and takes into account plugins without inputs
  • fixed assumption that an effect would have inputs
  • "onlysavefirstprogram" workaround for Blood Overdrive and Compressor is now used for all VST1 plugins
Here are the issues fixed between beta2 & beta 3:
  • The browser preview mixer track can't be set higher than 64.
  • all my projects with zebra2 get noise on the zebra channel (like a full peak digital noise)
  • Loading an older project with Fruity Delays in it, now the delays are out of sync.
  • Every time when I open Riff (from tools or from Piano Roll) and turn off "show details" and then switch to "Levels" and turn "show details" back on.
  • By the way the Parameter Automation record is a bug I tried all the non FLStudio VST I have and they do the same thing.
  • janko keyboard input mode, the enter key also is translated, it's a bit disturbing.
  • BeepMap crashes
  • just a small issue in the "Scale levels" tool: the tooltip of the new center knob says "Tension".
  • Load the New Stuff FLP file. Project starts to load. Gets to Fruity Multiband Compressor and crashes.
  • garbage when last of the mixer/playlist icons was used
  • very long hovering display in browser when a drive letter was added as an extra folder
  • browser F5/F6 making it lose kb focus
  • FSC score saving being broken (was actually saving them as MIDI files)
  • display bug for piano roll note levels (I also made slide notes no more on top of normal notes)
  • reeverb 2's early reflection bug
  • bug in envelope smoothing tool in Sytrus
