    Default FL Studio 4 vs FL Studio 8

    Yes ,I still use FL Studio 4...lol Every time I tell someone I still use FL studio 4,they tell I need to upgrade.The question I want to ask is, is it worth it to upgrade to the new FL Studio? You tell me? FL Studio 4 has the auto-fit feature that I use for my samples and I hate the manual shit the new Fl studio has.Should I use both? Fl Studio 4 for my sample and Fl studio 8 for my original beats?

    I always found it annoying when it automatically did that because it would always end up doing it to something I didn't want it to be done to. Thats a big feature, it was called fruity loops that would of been a bad move if they did remove it. Usually on newer versions they make changes like that to make things more convenient for the user.

    Really? I usually get it first or second try. Sometimes you need to speed the tempo up double or slow it down. Say like 80 bpm would be around equal to 140. This may help the the forum wont align the chart right for shit.

    yo bro i believe if you double the bpm of 80 it'd be 160, not 140
