Image Line today released three very interesting news about the future of FL-Studio. First, FL-Studio 12.5.1 was announced with new features, workflow enhancements and bug fixes. Then they have released a somewhat surprising news. The next major version of FL Studio will be not 13 but 20 because this marks the 20th anniversary of this DAW’s. After the Windows have already skipped with Windows 10 the ninth version, Image Line dares even a bigger leap. The big new FL-Studio 20 with many new features, optimised design… will be in released in 2018.
For macOS /OS X users, there are also good news. Besides the news of the upcoming FL Studios, Image-Line has also published a native 64-bit macOS/OS X public beta. It will be interesting whether FL-Studio 20 then also comes directly with macOS support on the market. It would certainly be a good step of the developers where many producers would benefit from it.
New in FL Studio v12.5.1
- Mixer – Closed Mixer left/right panels can be opened when mixer tracks are assigned to them.
- General Settings – ‘Auto name effects’ option is off, by default.
