    If you're a legit customer with a license, it should work (it does here) but if you're not, you should wait for an official release.
    But you shouldn't install it just over the old installation. Chose another dir while installing. I have all versions from 6.0.8 to 20.7 RC4
    installed in separate dirs because there always can be an issue that leads into problems loading up your projects.

    In such case you can easily switch between the versions and load up your project in your last working setup.

    I for example had projects that just worked correctly in a specific version. In other releases some plugins
    crashed or played the wrong sound or something else.

    Its channel sampler is as old as the hills. Don't know why they don't introduce a newer one. Ableton Live's most users have fallen in love with it mostly because of its sampler. If Image-line can introduce a better one, they can raid and plunder Ableton and then burn it completely.

    Because adding any extra functionality would overlap with products they want to upsell you on. $200 for the Producer Edition doesn't actually give you very much, even warping isn't included in that price. Their flagship sampler Directwave loads MANY formats but importing them isn't possible without dropping big bucks, IL actually dropped support for certain formats (sf2) only to allow them to be opened with Directwave but not openable with the trial or player version available in the Producer Edition. It's pretty scummy.

    So much this.i think they've coded themselves into a corner and this is about all they can do.still don't get why the CPU sky rockets when you use higher PPQ values.i can use 4000 plus in Reaper and Bitwig and beyond that in Digital Performer and the CPU doesn't budge an inch.also came across some weird issue with it not triggering NoteOff consistently with shorter MIDI notes(not the keyboard,drivers or playing because it triggers fine in the other DAW's)the fact they can't even bothered to smooth FX bypasses either(really annoying when you are using a lot of processing that is non-linear)kind of speak volumes about their development cycles or lack thereof and their general demographic("beat"producers)

    Does Image Line do license transfers? cause i think it's about time i pull the plug on this

    Yeah the sampler is a joke.they implemented sample start and end points but with absolutely dog shit resolution.the sampler does need revamping yes.i can't believe they are still using those control rate envelopes lol.i don't know what they did to screw up the elastique timestretching either but it sounds really bad and borderline unusable in FL compared to Ableton and any other DAW that uses them.i'd like to see it but its not gonna happen.FL's solution to everything is to give you some stupid little macro plugin that does some of the functionality e.g Edison,Newtone,Directwave rather than address core issues with the DAW itself

    They can keep their warp algorithms.it sounds absolutely dreadful.doesn't surprise me though that Image Line would half arse this.i burst out laughing when i heard the demonstration videos of it on Youtube..how is anybody going to find that useful in the way Abletons warp markers are apart from the most esoteric of applications(sound design probably)

    Directwave works fine for doing more complex stuff.
    The only thing FL lacks regarding this is proper warping and proper clip fade in-outs.

    Expected them to fix some issues. A issue with FL that I have the most is how parameter values are displayed, especially in automation. It's mostly from 0 to 100.

    Take down notice. You have to be quick to be able to download it here when it appears.

    YES!!! This has always bugged me because there is zero reason why zooming in should be capped let alone increase CPU usage when no other DAW I've used has had this issue. Maybe they do use more as well but there is a huge jump in (internal) usage with FL and opening a large project with high ppq settings makes me feel like my computer is the same specs as 10 years ago. But then I look at the Activity Monitor and it shows my CPU is only being 20% used with standard temperature. I hate myself for using FL for so many years and being stuck in the workflow (which is actually incredible) but other DAWs have never clicked with me in the same way. Reason came incredibly close so maybe I'll give it another chance.

    It would be a huge favor if you have a latest mac version, and if you could please send to me? I'm using 20.0.5.0 Haven't found any mac version more latest than that. :( Couldn't find anywhere.
