Image-Line has released FL Studio 12.4, the latest version of the music production software for Windows.
The update introduces the new Transistor Bass bassline synthesizer instrument.

Plus, fast editing your bassline sequences.
The Transistor Bass plugin is on sale for $49 USD. All purchases between now and December 1st, 2016, go into the draw to win a real Roland TB-303 ($2,500 USD) and a modded Cyclone TT-303 ($500 USD).
