Big news! It took 20 years, but with the release of version 20, FL Studio is officially a native macOS app in addition to being on Windows. FL Studio 20 is truly multi-platform, with projects interchangeable between the two operating systems. However, you need to have the same third-party plug-ins installed on both for the projects to translate.
That’s not all there is to it, of course. FL Studio 20 adds time signature support with unlimited TS changes in both the playlist and pattern views. Simultaneous and multiple time signatures are possible anywhere in the playlist.
Speaking of playlists, playlist view now support multiple arrangements, that is layouts of Audio, Automation, and Pattern Clips. This allows for the possibility of working with multiple versions of a project.
Another important addition is plug-in delay compensation across the mixer, audio input, metronome, and plug-in wrapper. Both manual and automatic PDC have been recoded from scratch.
Finally, FL Studio 20 adds freezing options. You can bounce audio and pattern clips to audio, reducing CPU load by converting synths, processed tracks, and MIDI to audio files.
With these updates, FL Studio has done a fair amount of growing up for sure. Its availability for Mac users is going to make the already popular DAW all the more commonplace.
FL Studio 20 starts at USD 99.
