Fruity Loops, this bad-ass PC drum machine/sampler was the mutt's nuts for programming beats. As it's evolved over the years, it dropped the Fruity name and now goes by the more professional sounding FL Studio. Through it's evolution, it's gone from a MIDI only step-sequencer to a full-blown and fully automatable studio environment that has more bells and whistles than you can shake a stick at. Sure you can open the help file or even follow the many included tutorials, but if you really want to explore the depths of what this program is capable of, then I suggest you take a peek at the FL Studio Bible. I'm not trying to sound like a dork here, but I really thought that I knew FL inside and out as well as all the little tricks and whatnot, but damn; apparently not!
In the "real-world" you could pay $39.99 for a wire-bound version of this informative piece (plus shipping and handling) or you could just download a PDF that somebody has pain-stakingly scanned for free. Granted, the hard copy would be nice to have if you want some good reading while you're dropping a deuce, but if you're like me and you just want to quickly peruse here and there at little tips and whatnot (whilst saving yourself a few bucks) then you should download this immediately.
