Well, since the search gave me a big angry face because "fruity loops tutorials"
was too long of a search, and "FL: Main" didn't get any results, I'm going to have
to ask for some help here. :P

I would like some beginner fruity loops tutorials, something that will be able to
teach sombody who just turned the program on, and doesnt have any clue at all
what is going on.

Thanks a bunch in advance!

Sorry for not searching harder, its just so much easier to ask.

This site has some nice tutorials about FL, most of the basics you can find out by just messing around a bit and reading some of the help files in the program.

That looks like it has a lot of info, but its not really laid out in a way that gives me a "start-to-finish" lesson.

I bookmarked it, but are there any other resources I can use that are more noob-friendly?

I have FL 6 XXL if it matters.

Since i started using this program, I have been trying to make the guitar sound as real as possible (the slayer tool, I mean). Anyone got any tips on that? =|

Ok, Im trying to create a nice angel choir sling thing, but when im editing it on the piano roll the singing doesnt stop when the bar on the piano roll stops, it keeps doing it till the whole sound clip of the choir is over, which is very long. So if i want it to play for one beat and then stop i draw a bar over the beat but the singing doesnt stop after the beat is over it keeps going for 10 seconds. It worked the first time i tried but now i dont know whats wrong. A little help is welcome.

Well the only tip I have for you is this: DON'T use FL Slayer. xP There are a few presets in Sytrus you could use, although everyone recognizes them... I don't know of any guitar VSTs off the top of my head, but I believe that there are a few out there...

I have encountered yet another problem. Ive made this little melody on the piano roll. I wanted to change the instrument playing the melody a bit into the song so i copyed the pattern and pasted it on a channel i wasnt using. So i dragged a bunch of other instruments on the channel and after i had tried a few it stopped changin tones. It just played the same note over and over. Even when i took back the original instrument and when i restarted FL. What the hell?

Sometimes certain instruments mess up what you have in your piano roll. Just move the pattern to a new channel and start switching instruments again--It should work fine.

When I opened up FL for the first time ever (when I was 11, for God's sake) I figured out how to make notes slide >:(

Here I have it playing c4 for 4 beats. On the offbeat of the first count, I have it slide up. It will have finished sliding up to c5 at the beginning of the second beat, because I made it last that long.

It'll only slide as fast as you make it.

If they're a .wav sample kind of dealio, you can link the folder straight into FL by going options -> file settings -> then finding the folder with all of your .wav sounds.

If it's an MP3, you have to open up an Audio Clip (right click ->insert -> audio clip), left lick on it, click on the little folder icon, and then find your file. After that, click the "keep on disk" button off. Then you can see your sound waves and where you have to put them in order for them to be in beat.

Open up your channel go to the "misc" tab, change the Cut by, to "1" It should end when your note stops playing.

Simple question:
Where can I find some VST instruments or whatever?
I would like a cool guitar one (I found some,better than originals...but not so good) and any electronic sounding thing.

Hey, I have a question here, I am currently working on a song, and go to one of the instruments and press piano roll, all the notes are the same, when I open a new project it goes back to all different notes on the piano roll, is there a setting I accidently pushed? Sorry if a similiar problem has already been posted, i didnt have time to read all 54 pages on this topic.

When you start a new project, you start over with a whole NEW project. Your other one is gone if you didn't save it.
