FL Studio 12.5 features a number of changes, most visible of which is the Pattern picker, allowing you to quickly drag patterns onto the playlists. This offered the opportunity of a one-click pattern freeze.
A couple more plugins have been "vectorized", amongst which are Harmor and FPC.
A new "tape" delay plugin has been added, dubbed Fruity Delay 3, available for free on all editions of the software. And finally, Transistor Bass sees an update of its audio engine, bringing it closer to the True Thing.
