FL Studio 10.6 Bringing Multi-Touch Music Making To Windows Tablets

YouTube Preview Image

Here’s a sneak preview of FL Studio 10.6 – an upcoming version of the Windows DAW that has been updated to support Windows touchscreen tablets.

In this demo video, it’s being used with a touchscreen monitor on a Toshiba laptop.

Here’s what’s new in FL Studio 10.6:

  • Multi-touch support – FL Studio (and some plugins) now respond to Multitouch. If you want to get involved in multi-touch testing and development click here.
  • Debugging code – This version contains code to help us track any bugs deep in the code. When you close FL Studio you may see a pop-up window reporting things such as ‘memory leaks’. If you see this please report the error here.
  • BassDrum – BassDrum is (not surprisingly) a Kick/Bass percussion synthesizer with sample layering.
  • GrooveMachine Synth – 1 x Synth & FX unit from Groove Machine.
  • Plugin picker – Right-click to open a plugin and its presets in the Browser.
  • Harmor – Now supports Komplexer WT wavetables & ‘Map audio regions to keys’ with auto-dump to score for Slicex like drum handling

Release date is to be announced.

  1. That is beautiful

    Imagine if Microsoft managed to get their kernels right on the tablets, and VST plugins were supported, I’d ditch my iPad anytime.

  2. wait a minute…fl studio on a touch screen? the controls on sytrus are so fucking tiny it sucks using a MOUSE with the shit never mind a big ol’ finger! I mean a touch screen daw could be cool but fl studio has some of the tiniest interface widgets on a daw except maybe Logic…they better redesign the whole damn interface or it’s just going to be annoying. i mean just think of how the fl mixer words, you can only see the plugins for one channel at a time so using multitouch to move multiple channels it would be kinda…screwed up. I think this is just a “check box update” so when some noob is in guitar center looking for an entry level daw the salesman can say “multitouch support? oh sure, it says so right here on the box!”…

    • I guess you could use a stylus for the small controls. I’m really excited about this touch technology though and I think apps will redesign the interfaces to accommodate touch.

  5. 32 bit host forever, why bother, it has an expiration date, windows will eventually drop 32 bit o/s, then what are you going to do?

    • No they won’t because Windows 64 bit will always support 32 bit applications. The web browser you typed your message in is most likely 32 bit. FL Studio also supports 64 bit plugins so does not really have any limitations.

      • They will drop 32 bit down shifting and 32 bit completely, like they did with 16 bit and Vista.
        Technology advances, either you get on the ship that’s sailed, or you don’t, because you can’t swim with the big boys.
        They are not going to keep 32 bit around for much longer, as evident by all the current releases aimed at 64 bit only. People have been making the move for years.

        It’s only a matter of time until 32 bit applications are a thing of the past.
        Don’t think that 128 bit isn’t in the near future of 5-10 years.

        • That’s because running in 64 bit the CPU does not support going into 16 bit mode. The only way 32 bit will be dropped is if we have 128 bit CPU’s but they will not happen for a very very long time.
