Announced just a short while ago it’s now already released for registered customers, the FL Studio Performance Mode.
It’s a totally new workflow introduced with the FL Studio 10.5 beta that features playlist clip triggering with your mouse, keyboard or midi controller a la Ableton Live. As a matter of fact we believe it will be a solid contender for the live performance DAW throne once it’s fully developed and fine-tuned. Check out the video below.
