FL Studio 9.5.0

Wednesday, July 7, 2010


(public beta)


Additions:

Much improved "keep on disk" option.

Piano roll/playlist/event editor: removed "Delete all", cut/copy/delete now applies to all if no (events and time)

Inverted behavior when resizing clips from left side with slip editing.

Prevents early recorded notes when "wait for input" is on but "recording precount" is off.

Improved auto placement of recorded clips in the playlist.

Automation clips & envelope editors: left alt bypasses snap while editing

Improved piano roll note display (faster & looks slightly different), ghost notes now really ghosted.

ASIO: now avoids buzzing while lots of underruns occur.

Playlist: tracks can now be resized individually.

F3 in name editor picks last used color.

Added offset feature for better (less bad) DirectSound performances under Vista.

Added new alternate playback tracking mode that doesn't rely on driver, as well as offset.

Added option to mix directly in ASIO's bufferswitch.

New playlist marker options.

Playlist now showing bar #s after 999.

Playlist/piano roll: can now display time segments other than 4 bars (View->Time segments).

Can now relocate project in song mode from piano roll.

Slightly less clicking when switching presets.

Less clicking when relocating songs with audio clips (& granular effect on clips when declicking is generic or above).

Option to move playlist marker content left & right.

Option to play notes crossing playback start position.

Better sorting of MRU colors in name edit.

Improved autoscrolling for some editing features.

Improved playlist Edit->Merge pattern clips.

Piano roll delete/mute doesn't create undo level before actually deleting/muting.

Manual (de)selection now creates undo level.

Shift+up/down now works in playlist too.

New "Merge similar pattern clips" editing feature to merge selected patterns & all their clones.

Playlist: option to disable track grid.

Speeded up playlist display, some new display options.

Time markers now displayed as ticks in main song position slider + their names in its hint.

New "copy/paste value" for envelope (& automation clips) points, compatible with parameter's "copy/paste value".

New "duplicate" (ctrl+B) option in piano roll & playlist.

Event ID ranges are now cached (for speed).

New "wide tracks" mixer view.

Added support for Cakewalk A-Series controllers.

Changed "Make unique" and added "Make unique as sample" for audio clips.

Home (begin) key now relocates to the bar that's the nearest to the beginning of the view in PR/PL.

Improved meters everywhere.

Automation clips & internal controllers don't prevent using event automation for the same parameter anymore.

Changed way channel pitch bend is automated, to allow proper use of link smoothing.

When an automation clip is created for tempo or channel pitch bend, a default "sane" range is assigned to the clip.

Little speedup in Fruity Limiter, Maximus, Vocodex.

Edison/Slicex/Fruity Convolver: holding shift while dropping files appends audio to the existing data.

Markers now imported from MIDI files to the playlist.
