Do I get EVERYTHING free for life?

No. If it's a core program feature, such as 'Time Signature' support for example, we usually include these free. If it's a plugin, we may include it free, but also may decide to sell it as an optional extra. But don't worry, there is always lots of free features with each new FL Studio release. That's why we are still here!

How does Image-Line stay in business? Our lifetime free updates policy attracts a lot of new customers, FL Studio is possibly the world's most popular DAW, but importantly we tend to keep nearly all our customers for the long-haul, and so the active up-to-date, user base just keeps growing! It's the word of mouth, from this loyal and growing crowd of users that propels us forward.

One of our philosophies is that you should only pay for features you use. In this way, we include a number of optional (demo) synthesizers, effects and sounds. Since our loyal customer base is so large (thanks to all of you), the combined new and additional sales pay for the free updates to the existing customer base. This model has been working for us for over 15 years and we are continuing to grow. So, please purchase FL Studio and add-ons, support the entire FL Studio community...Lifetime Free Updates are powered by you.
