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.

Image Line’s Software Synth Sytrus 2.3 Has Released – Get 10% Off!

Sytrus_3

One of my favorite software synths Sytrus has been updated. The update is free for registered users. For everyone else, click here to get 10% off Sytrus or any other image line product.

For those of you not familiar with Sytrus, image line describes it as
"a powerful and versatile synthesizer featuring six customizable
operators for FM (Frequency Modulation) and RM (Ring Modulation)
synthesis, plucked string synthesis, 3 filter modules, an effects
module with chorus, three delay lines and unique programmable unison
mode."  The synth can be used inside of FL Studio, or as a VST/DXi inside of your host.

Words don’t do it justice, so check out the very cool Flash-based microsite http://www.sytrus.com/ to hear it first hand. Note you can also get a free demo version of this synth when you download FL Studio. Note, this is a full fledged VST

Here is what’s new in 2.3:

– New Cherry phaser filter.
–  New edit options in the harmonics editor.
– LFOs have a "bipolar LFO tension" option now.
– The shape loader now loads AIFF samples.
–  New envelope point modes: "stairs" and "smoothed stairs".

It also looks like they’ve added some new patches as well.
