Image-Line, the company behind massively successful DAW FL Studio, released FL Studio 12 just a few months ago adding a whole new interface with loads of additional features and tweaks above and below the hood.

Since then users have been adjusting to the new version and giving their feedback which Image-Line have been listening to for their new update.

Image-Line says that this update is to improve workflow and to help customers making the transition from FL Studio 11 to 12. A lot of emphasis has gone into overhauling plugin management and the update features new instruments.
