FL Studio Guru - Freezing is the process of converting real-time CPU intensive synthesis and effects to much less CPU intensive Audio Clips. Additionally, freezing can be used to apply sample-slicing and other 'resampling' effects to the audio or simply to tidy up a messy Playlist.



FL Studio's free-form workflow means there is no sure relationship between Instrument Channels > Pattern Clips > Playlist tracks > Mixer Tracks. So, audio is 'frozen' at the Mixer stage and a little human intervention is needed to decide what to freeze.


For more information see the manual here - Freezing Playlist Tracks.

What's this for?


We are looking for feedback about some of the major changes in workflow that have been made so far. Please try it out and let us know what you think of how it works. We're not really looking for bug reports, at this time. 


What's new so far?


A lot, but here's some of the key new changes so far...


  • Browser - The Browser has changed (now with category tabs and the ability to delete content on right-click)
  • Channel Menu - The Channel Options Menu has moved from the Toolbar Menus to the Channel rack.
  • Channel settings - Have been integrated into the Plugin Wrapper.
  • Interface - Vectorial user interface. See Options > General Settings > GUI display.
  • Per Channel Swing - The Channel Settings now has a 'swing multiplier' amount.
  • Pattern Menu - The Pattern Menu has moved from the Channel rack to the Toolbar Menu and Pattern Selector.
  • Piano roll - Piano roll Auto-zoom can now be deselected from Settings > General > Auto zoom in piano roll
  • Playlist - Multiple drag and drop for audio files onto Playlist (from a Windows file browser).
  • Stepsequencer - Stepsequences are now interchangable with Piano rolls.
  • VST Plugins - VST plugin installation has changed.


This is not a finished version of the program, it's not even a beta version of FL Studio 12. It's a pre-beta, still under construction, so it's likely to change significantly prior to release and projects made in it may not be compatible with the final version.


Frequently Asked Questions


Should I wait to buy FL Studio 12 rather than 11? No, we give FL Studio customers Lifetime Free Updates, so buy FL Studio 11 now and get FL Studio 12 for free, when it is released...and 13, 14, 15... etc ;)


What about FL Studio 64 Bit?  This FL Studio 12 Alpha is a 32 Bit. The 64 Bit version of FL Studio 11.1 is available here. FL Studio 12 will also be available in 64 Bit at release.


When will FL Studio 12 be released? We can't give you any dates yet, but don't expect it anytime soon. There is still a lot of work to be done. For example, the Mixer hasn't been updated yet.
