The fastest way from your brain to your speakers

Image-Line Software has released FL Studio 12, a complete software music production environment, representing more than 16 years of innovative developments and Image-Line’s commitment to Lifetime Free Updates.

FL Studio 12 introduces the biggest change to the application in 10 years – a vectorial user interface. With high resolution video displays at 4K and 5K resolution flooding the market, FL Studio 12 can take full advantage of these and is ready for the future with support for up to 8K (16 x the pixels of a 1080p display). Experience a pin-sharp, user scalable, interface that is now among the most advanced in the world.

The Mixer utilizes the power of the vectorial back-end to present a fully customizable user experience. It can be dragged to any size and coupled with 6 selectable layout styles plus features that dynamically adjust to the vertical height. FL Studio 12’s Mixer is ready for any task or workflow.

Multi-touch has also been taken to the next level. The mixer and main UI can be rescaled to fit human fingers. No more fiddling about with tiny controls on a touch screen. The larger the touch display, the bigger users can make the interface and controls. Swap between Windows Multi-touch and FL Studio Multi-touch modes for enhanced touch functions.
