  • Updates to FMStudio are free - to date we have released 8 updates, all of which have been free
  • We maintain a database of everyone that has purchased FMStudio. When a new update is released, everyone in that database is sent an email. We use "Constant Contact" to send a message to everyone letting them know that a new update is available.
  • If you are not receiving the emails, please let us know by emailing us at - we will make sure that we have the correct information in our database.

Many user email clients are sending the update announcement emails to the spam bin as they include multiple links. Be sure to add the email to your safe folder - or set up a rule in your email client to allow for our emails.
