Native Instruments announces the availability of version 1.1.0 of FM8 for public beta testing. This service and compatibility update provides a number of fixes plus full 64-bit support under Mac and PC for both the stand-alone and the plug-in versions.

The next update to FM8, version 1.1.0, is almost ready. To ensure the best possible quality for this version, the FM8 team has decided to set up a public beta test. This means that registered FM8 owners now have the opportunity to download a fully functional 1.1.0 beta version from the NI website and test out all the new capabilities right away.

Please note that even though the public beta version has already undergone extensive internal testing, it is still a pre-release version and should be used with caution in performance-critical situations.

Important notes:

  • The FM8 1.1.0 public beta version requires (and overwrites) a previous FM8 installation on the same computer.
  • If you want to revert to a previous FM8 version at any time, you will have to uninstall the 1.1.0 version, run the master installer from the original DVD set again, then install the latest official update.
  • There is no tech support for the public beta version. If you want to report a bug, you’ll need to create an account in our bugtracking system – please follow the instructions on the Download page of the FM8 public beta. Login details and further information will be sent to you via email.
