What’s new in FL Studio 12 from Image line. Let’s explore a little below.

 

Here are some key points:

  • FL Studio 12 the interface can scale for large monitors and touch-screens. This is because of Vector technology.
  • You can hide the menu Bar
  • For Touch screens:  Multi-touch can be enabled so you can “play” the onscreen piano.
  • Piano Roll view switching was added to allow users to easily go from roll to steps
  • Plugin selector button added to make finding your plugins even easier
  • Pattern menu relocated to “Menu” bar
  • Step sequencer can be detached from main window and swing is now an addition for each of the channels.
  • Updates for a portion of the Native plugins have been made.
  • For the Mixer:   Cables are integrated much like Propellerhead has incorporated in Reason, Viewing groups is more easily done,

The following has been posted by image line.

 

  • New plugins
    • Transient Processor (demo). Hey, no complaints! We haven’t released a new plugin, for sale, since Harmor in 2011 yet we gave away Maximus and Sytrus with FL Studio 12. We’re not greedy 😛
    • Razer Chroma – Control Razer Chroma enabled hardware such as laptops, keyboards, mice and headsets from FL Studio.

 

  • FL Engine / Interface:
    • Real-time stretching – Sampler and Audio Clip ‘Realtime > Stretch‘ mode allows you to change tempo and maintain pitch and rhythm in sync with the project AND OR change pitch and maintain sample duration in the Piano roll. See also: ‘Tools menu > Macros > Switch realtime stretching for all audio clips’.
    • Image-Line Remote feedback – Right-click Enable Image-Line Remote to activate control feedback from FL Studio to IL Remote.
    • Auto name – The names of existing Channels aren’t changed when dropping presets on them and the General Settings > Auto name is off.
    • Type in values – Tempo and Mixer track selectors now accept actual values.
    • Restore previous state after solo option – This option under General Settings > Miscellaneous allows you to restore the Channel Rack, Playlist and Mixer to their state prior to a solo command, or to unsolo everything when it’s off.
    • Event Editors – Event Editors no longer close if the Effect Slot changes
    • Major bug fix/maintenance update – If you have experienced bugs please test for them and report to Techsupport if they still exist.
  • New plugins

    • Razer Chroma – Control Razer Chroma enabled hardware such as laptops, keyboards, mice and headsets from FL Studio.
  • Plugin updates – Mainly replacing bitmap with vectorial interfaces (UI):
  • Channel Rack – New options and features:
    • Mute/Solo lockingShift-Click Mute LEDs to lock them to their current state.
    • Lock MIDI notes to Channels – Right-click a Channel Button and select Receive notes from. The Channel will now respond to that Controller regardless of what Channel is selected in FL Studio.
    • MIDI channel through – Allows all MIDI Channels from a controller or external sequencer to pass to the plugin for separate control AND to record up to 16 separate MIDI Channel colors. When this option is off, MIDI Channel is ignored (previous FL Studio behavior).
    • Auto resize – Set the height of the Channel Rack (Off, Min, Max).
    • Sort by – Sort the Channel Rack order (Mixer Track, Name, Color).
  • All editors (Playlist, Piano roll & Event Editor):
    • Incremental Scrolling – There are separate options under Playlist menu > View, Piano roll menu > View, & Event Editor menu > View > Incremental scrolling. Clicking on the scroll-bar rail will start scrolling toward, rather than jumping directly to, the location clicked. Designed to minimize jump-relocation mistakes when editing close to the Scroll Bar at high-zoom levels.
    • Continuous scrolling – Editor windows scroll continuously rather than jumping. Right-Click the Scroll icon and select ‘Continuous scrolling‘.
  • Piano roll – New options and features:
    • Scale highlighting – See ‘Menu > Helpers > Scale highlighting‘ to choose a scale root (C through to B) and scale type (Major, Minor etc) to show on the Piano roll background.

    • Event Editor target menu – Moved to the left of the integrated Event Editor.
    • Brush tools updatedMono paint renamed Paint: Swaps +Shift functions with un-Shifted functions to match the brush tool behavior prior to FL Studio 11. Poly paint renamed Paint in drum sequencer mode: Functions remain the same. The name changes are intended to better explain the purpose of the two brush tools.
