FL Studio 8 Now Available – Get 10% Off

Image Line just released FL Studio 8.  While I don’t use it as my primary DAW, I do use the killer step sequencer for programming loops from time to time. Image Line’s policy of free updates (yes, free) has made it a "no-brainer" for me to stay current. I’ve just downloaded version 8 and can report that it runs fine on Vista and opens my old projects back just fine.

New user pricing depends on which edition of FL Studio you choose (see links at bottom of post). Use this Modulate This link and save 10% all Image Line Products.

So what’s new in FL Studio 8?

  • Flsynthmaker FL Synthmaker – create & share your own FL instruments.
  • One-click-recording using Edison wave editor plugin.
  • Slicex, a new drumloop slicer & re-arranging tool.
  • Soundgoodizer is a ‘maximizer-enhancer’ plugin based on the Maximus sound-process engine.
