FL Studio 9 box versions

 

FL Studio 9.5 Beta, the newest version of Image-Line’s popular audio production software, includes many useful changes to the base program giving even more core value to FL Studio users. Registered users can download it from their account.

FL Studio 9.5 notable fixes/changes

* Larger mixer view & waveform metering - The Mixer View options include 'Wide tracks' and 'Waveforms'.
* Individually sizable Playlist tracks - Any or all Playlist tracks can now be resized by dragging on the divider between the name areas. Individual tracks can also be locked at a desired size.
* Live Playlist marker types - Playlist markers can be set to Loop, Pause or Skip for innovative live performances.
* 64 bit plugin support - The Wrapper now automatically detects 64 bit plugins and opens them in 64 Bit 'Bridged' mode.
* Improved memory management - Two changes have been made to lower demands on FL Studio's memory allocation.
  1. 64 & 32 Bit VST plugins can be opened in 'Bridged' mode that runs the plugin and its memory allocation in a separate process.
  2. Audio Clips & Sampler Channels Keep on disk option now opens the sample in a separate memory allocation.
* Improved audio options - ASIO: 'Mix in bufferswitch' and 'Triple buffer' may improve performance with some ASIO drivers. ASIO/DirectSound: Revised 'Playback tracking' options to help with alignment of visual feedback with audio where problems exist.
* Fully automatic PDC - The default for new projects, automatic Plugin Delay Compensation updates the PDC settings when changes are detected.
* Piano roll transport control - Editing in the Piano roll while in Song mode will now move the Playlist transport in sync with the Piano roll.
* Piano roll - Rounded notes view.
* Ctrl+B - Duplicate selection, zoom range or all (no selection) in the Playlist and Piano roll
