What is an FLP file?

An FLP file is a project created by FL Studio, an application used to compose arrange, record, and edit music. It contains all of the data associated with a project, including demo plugins and music track settings.

More Information

FLP files do not store the actual audio that appears in the project. Instead, the files contain references to the audio files. Therefore, if you move an FLP file or the files it references, such as a .WAV sample file, or SimSynth or DrumSynth preset file, the project may not play correctly in FL Studio.

NOTE: FL Studio was formerly known as FruityLoops, which was originally released in 1998. FruityLoops became FL Studio with the release of version 4 in March 2003.
