FL Studio demo limitations:

The only limitation is that projects can be saved but can't be opened again.
To open your project again, purchase an FL Studio Edition including registrations for all instruments and effects used in the project.  A lower featured FL Studio registration will open a demo project, but the not registered plugin(s) will be replaced with placeholders.

Some functions that need save/load to be active don't work in FL Studio demo. Examples are the "clone channel" function and the  "Save preset as..." menu for plugins...
All other functions in the FL Studio demo are fully unlocked. Some plugins may give static (white noise) or silence at regular intervals as part of the demo limitations. FL Studio demo is the equivalent of the FL Studio Producer Edition + All plugins bundle package.
Remember, you can render to .wav, .mp3 .ogg or .mid files prior to saving a demo project.

2Ghz Intel Pentium 4 / AMD Athlon 64 (or later) compatible CPU with full SSE2 support. The faster your CPU and more cores it has the more you will be able to do simultaneously. Download and test the demo!

Test the demo first

If your system meets the minimum system requirements then your CPU speed and RAM are the factors that impose limits on the complexity of your projects.

Generally, the faster your CPU is the more instruments you will be able to play simultaneously and/or the more effects you will be able to use. The more RAM (memory) you have the larger and more samples you will be able to load and play back smoothly.

To find out how FL Studio behaves on your machine don't guess, please download the demo and try it out for yourself. See this page in the manual for tips on improving performance a few simple tweaks can go a long way.

Installation and registration instructions:

Why do we use external sites to host the demo ?

Our FL Studio demo installer is downloaded over 30,000 times a day (10,000,000 times a year!)

Direct download:

You can download FL Studio from our servers directly by using the grey button on the left. If you don't manage to download from there, please use one of the alternative download locations.

Alternative download locations:

It is difficult for us to host all downloads and maintain sensible download speeds. Our solution is to partner with the hosting services on the left side of this page. They offer a sponsored but usually local & very fast download of the demo installer.

The demo is the official installer:

When you buy FL Studio or grab a Lifetime Free Update,  you will install the latest demo. The demo is then unlocked to the level you purchased by installing a very small ~ 50 kb FLRegkey.Reg file or by entering your 'my account' sign in details in the FL Studio about window (version 11 and up). It takes only seconds to activate the program. If you have installed the latest FL Studio demo you have already downloaded 99.7% of the data you need to own it!


The FL Studio installer uses the OpenCandy recommendation network to offer you other software during the installation process that you may find valuable.
