We’ve seen an awesome sneak peek posted on createdigitalmusic.com, that indicates that Image Line is working on a performance or Live mode for FL Studio 10 (or will it be 11?). This would be another upcoming improvement for the FL Studio song arrangement making it more suitable for taking your FL Studio setup to a gig instead of leaving it in the home studio.
Ableton Live is currently ruling the live performance DAW market. Recently a new DAW named Bitwig was announced that seems to spawn from the Ableton idea and is looking very similar in the session clip launch performance view. It seems this department is now being taken on by other manufacturers including Image Line.
The improvements introduced with FL Studio 10 already make it easier to arrange your song in a live way, but with this alpha testing video we’ve seen Image Line seems to take it up another notch. Using the Novation Launchpad that currently is one of Ableton’s best companions for live arranging and performing we see a similar clip launch feature within the FL Studio environment resulting in a promising way of composing your FL Studio songs. It also feels somehow similar to the Monomo. Let’s hope we see this new feature implemented soon.
