Lifetime free updates:

Buying FL Studio not only gets you the latest version but all future FL Studio updates free. We believe you should have the functionality you paid for, bug-fixed, developed and updated for as long as we develop FL Studio. This has been our promise for 18 years and counting.  

FL Studio trial / demo limitations:

You CAN export projects to all supported audio formats. Projects CAN BE SAVED but won’t open, as saved, until your registration matches all the features and plugins used in the project.

Some functions that use save/load capability don’t work in the trial / demo. For example, "Clone channel" and the "Save preset as..." menu options.

All other functions in the FL Studio demo are fully unlocked. Some plugins may give static (white noise) or silence at regular intervals as part of the trial / demo limitations. FL Studio trial / demo is the equivalent of the FL Studio Producer Edition + All plugins bundle.

Installation and registration instructions:

Why do we use external sites to host the trial / demo ?

Our FL Studio trial / demo installer is downloaded over 30,000 times a day (10,000,000 times a year!)

Direct download:

You can download FL Studio from our servers directly by using the grey button on the left. If you don't manage to download from there, please use one of the alternative download locations.

Alternative download locations:

It is difficult for us to host all downloads and maintain sensible download speeds. Our solution is to partner with the hosting services on the left side of this page. They offer a sponsored but usually local & very fast download of the trial / demo installer.

The trial / demo is the official installer:

When you buy FL Studio or grab a Lifetime Free Update,  you will install the latest trial / demo. The trial / demo is then unlocked to the level you purchased by installing a very small ~ 50 kb FLRegkey.Reg file or by entering your 'my account' sign in details in the FL Studio about window (version 11 and up). It takes only seconds to activate the program. If you have installed the latest FL Studio trial / demo you have already downloaded 99.7% of the data you need to own it!
