The FL Studio 12 Producer Edition from Image-Line is a complete software music production environment. It delivers a full suite of music creation features including audio recording and editing, MIDI piano roll and step sequencing, live performance mode and multi-touch support. It also includes over 30 software synthesizers and 40 effect plug-ins. It has support for VST 32 & 64 bit, DX and FL Native plug-in formats and it can be hosted in other DAWs as a VST or connected through ReWire.
FL Studio 12 offers a host of advanced audio recording and editing functions that you can use to capture and fine tune your musical ideas. It allows you to record an unlimited amount of audio tracks simultaneously, only limited by the power of your computer and the amount of inputs of your audio interface. Once recorded, you can manipulate your audio with Edison, FL Studio's integrated wave editor that provides a broad palette of functions such as spectral analysis, convolution reverb, noise reduction, loop-construction tools and more. Using the playlist function you can arrange your audio and perform other editing tasks such as time-stretching, pitch-shifting, beat-slicing, cropping and more.
In addition to audio recording and editing, FL Studio 12 provides advanced mixing and routing options that allow you to create complex, polished productions. Allowing for up to 99 channels, the mixer can be used for leveling, panning, creating sub-mixes and adding effects to your audio. Each channel of the mixer is equipped with parametric EQ and can hold up to 10 effects (VST, DX or FL's Native format). Choose from more than 40 effects including maximization, limiting, compression, delay, distortion, equalization (graphic & parametric), filtering, phasing, flanging, chorus, vocoding and reverb. Furthermore, the mixer includes four dedicated send channels that provide the ability to sidechain inputs to multi-input effects plug-ins.
FL Studio 12 also offers a multitude of MIDI recording and sequencing functions that are centered around its piano roll and trademark step sequencer features. Use either of these powerful tools alone, or in combination with one another to record your musical performances in either pattern or track sequencing mode, depending on your personal workflow. Choose from a selection of over 30 software synthesizers covering acoustic/synthetic bass, electric guitar, multi-sampler tools including piano & strings, general sample playback and beat-slicing (With Rex 1 & 2 support).
