Player included in all FL Studio Editions
DirectWave installs as a 'player' version, free for all FL Studio users. DirectWave (player) channels will be saved along with the projects as normal.
The DirectWave Player limitations are:
Only DirectWave's own formats (*.dwp & *.dwb) can be loaded, VST sampling is disabled, external samples can not be added to patches nor can new patches be created.
To unlock the extra functions including: Editing patches, adding samples, recording, sampling VST instruments, loading 3rd party formats then DirectWave full version needs to be purchased separately.
