    It's not online only. You can use it with an offline computer just fine. You only need to initially generate a file on the offline computer, log into your account online to generate the code, then take it back to the offline computer and activate it. No need for online at all (just a slightly more complex activation that's all).

    I agree the reg key was easier, but on the plus side, since the keys are now tied per computer, there's no way people can get ahold of your regkey and mass distribute it, especially since it is required to log into your account (and if you use 2fa, nobody will be able to get in for sure).

    So, it's just more safety that protects you in the end. Before this, they would've locked your account down for mass spreading a license key (which sometimes may not have been the fault of the user, which sucks for them); now there's a lot less to worry about that happening

    (though still, don't violate the TOS, which states only you can use the program, and it's not meant to let anyone else use it; often this was the reason mass keys got spread, because friends of friends didn't care about the original license owner. Which is a big reason why the owner shouldn't be letting anyone else have a key in the first place)

    You need to generate that key every time you install FL Studio on a fresh operating system, meaning there is no true offline regkey like before, which essentially means it's DRM protected software now. Without an internet connection, your DAW will only be usable as long as your Operating system is installed. With DRM you can forget about using the same license on a fresh Windows install, let alone a different computer.

    its a nightmare, to save a file, upload it to IL and get a response file back, which you then need to put back into your offline FL.
    Thats why i will stay with 20.8.4 probably, its just easier the reg key method.

    install everywhere in the world, load regfile, done authorized FL.

    Hopefully this gets patched for newer versions ...

    The new version looks really easy to use and really timesaving, but whats up with this weird authorization process?

    The reg key method was one of the biggest strenghts of FL Studio... I don't like DRM .-.

    The authorization process is not strange, but adapted to modern times. I know it's not always easy to adapt to new things, but time doesn't stand still. The reason of the new protection is to better protect against hacking and attacks.

    With this new protection you are on the safe side. Manufacturers also have to constantly face the new threat scenarios from the bad guys and readjust your products to the situation. Costs a lot of nerves, time and money.

    I don't know what's so complicated about the authorization-process. Just log in with your login data and you're done.

    Das ist natürlich selbsterklärend warum sie das gemacht haben... Aber pisst trotzdem etwas an. Weil der Kopierschutz von Image Line eigentlich schon perfekt war, bevor sie das neue system eingeführt haben .-.

    Mein Brain ist gerade etwas zu sehr brei ums auf englisch zu schreiben. I'll edit it later xD ... Or I'll just write a new post if the mods delete my german xD

    No thanks, I don't want to use it, because I don't want to get used to translators... I really need to practice English at the moment for work ect... XD

    But yeah, it was a little ignorant to write in German and I was a little high and tired lol. Sorry .-.

    I just meant, for people who work offline all the time, or don't like DRM stuff, FL Studio was one of the user friendliest daws, before they switched the authorization process, and that change of mind really bugs me as a (cracked) FL Studio user... I wanted to buy it Black Friday finally... But now I'm not so sure anymore. I think, now many people won't buy it anymore (like me), and with the old process, FL Studio was still uncracked for a year or maybe even two, so why did they thought that it would be better to change copy protection? At the moment they just pissed off a lot of legit users....

    I think nowadays even Cubase 12 is more user friendly for that matter, so I think I'll stick to my legit Cubase... Or maybe I'll finally check out Bitwig or Ableton (or Digital Performer...) If their authorization process is more comfy, for me?

    Now I even can imagine, that FL Studio uses something like ilok in the future xD

    Multiband Delay
    Multiband Delay is a unique and powerful sound-design tool. The process splits an incoming signal into 16 frequency bands and allows you to adjust Delay, Volume and Panning for each band.

    This only affects offline unlocking of FL Studio. Less than 1% of customers use FL Studio offline, and so there is no backlash here. There has been no backlash, nor do we expect there to be. Most people are not affected.

    In what way is the new system 'being online dependent' ? You can still unlock an offline machine without it ever having to touch the Internet.
    AFAIK all the major DAWs require a machine ID where offline unlocking is allowed. Some do not even allow it. We do not intend to disable offline unlocking, we just would like to verify the number of machines in use.

    Why? This has become one of the major sources of 'piracy'. Sharing of offline Regkeys. FL Studio is blocked from accessing the Internet an then they install a shared, spread, stolen license.

    We do not restrict the number of machines you can unlock (although at some point large numbers will attract attention).
    PS: There is no personally identifiable information in the machine ID, nor can any data be reverse engineered from it. Its just like a GUID. In this way we do not learn anything personal about that offline machine you have used. Except your license authorized to be used on it.

    Regards Scott

    The best DAW is the one that fits your workflow!

    The top list looks like this:
    • Live – 20.52%
    • Logic – 19.20%
    • Pro Tools - 16.13%
    • Cubase – 10.43%
    • FL Studio – 6.40%
    • Studio One – 5.71%
    • Reason – 4.98%
    • Reapers - 4.96%
    • Other – 4.28%
    • Sonar - 3.01%
    • GarageBand - 2.22%
    • Bitwig Studio – 1.22%
    • Digital performers – 0.94%

    FL Studio aka Fruity Loops is unique as a DAW due to its pattern-based step sequencer concept, which is reminiscent of grooveboxes, and makes it child's play to program beats. The pattern sequences can be arranged into songs with a user-friendly brush tool and a flexible playlist (arrangement view), where each track can contain MIDI, audio and automations at the same time. Not least because of this extremely simple composition concept, Fruity doesn't really get rid of its reputation as a beginner DAW for "hip-hop kiddies". And this, although the range of functions can easily keep up with many DAWs.

    The own sample and plug-in content is very extensive and third-party plug-ins can be integrated via the VST and AU interface. Audio recordings and edits are possible, but are also reminiscent of the possibilities of grooveboxes and accordingly cannot be compared with the global players. After 12 years of Windows exclusivity, the fruity DAW is now also available for Apple disciples. And even if it's not a battle-winning argument: the software is launched and ready to use within a perceived blink of an eye. As a DAW for beat producers who want to achieve official results in the hip-hip, trap and EDM areas in a straightforward and fast way, FL Studio is unbeatable.
