In this tutorial the Guru shows you how to set up FL Studio to use the Playlist time Markers as Jump-to-points. Jump Markers also can be set to Loop, Pause & Skip for additional flexibility. The video starts out with a small demonstration...
1. Load a monophonic melody (vocal/instrumental whatever you have, tonal/timbre variation is good) into Newtone. If you don't have Newtone you can get it here. You can also skip this step and use Edison edit out a string of notes of the same pitch.
2. Use Newtone to flatten the pitch to a single note (close to the average of the melody).
3. Load the flattened melody into Edison and remove any gaps between notes and other non-melodic noises. 'S,T,C,CH & F' sounds can become unwanted noise 'hiss' after blurring.
4. Add at least 4 seconds silence before and after the flattened melody.
Gross Beat is a huge time-saver for glitching, scratching and related time/volume based effects. While it's fun to use live, one of the most precise methods is to use the Fruity Keyboard Controller or an Automation Clip to switch envelopes (Time and or Volume) in sync with the project. This video shows you how...

If you are using the live keyboard control method you can download a Gross Beat preset 'Momentary' from Looptalk, thanks to nucleon for providing it. This releases the preset slot on key-release so you don't have to press the slot 1 again to turn off the selected slot.
Bit thanks toJWMMakerofMusic (Jim) for the loan of his cool 'Kowloon' track used in this tutorial. Here's the original (unmolested version) of Kowloon:
Here's a simple, but effective, method for adding presence to dry drum or other percussive sounds. Something the FL Studio Guru learned waaaaay back in the day when the 128 Kb was still considered adequate RAM for a sampler.
Oldschool Breakbeats library contains a fresh set of funky drum loops in the style often sampled from 60's and 70's records for use in modern music. Includes FL Studio project sources ready to re-mix and re-edit. February 07, 2013
From time to time we have users asking why their audio files don't sound the same in a media player vs the live sound in FL Studio. The Guru explores this problem and declares it nasty! August 15, 2012
FL SynthMaker can be used to make synth plugins, effects and dashboards (to control external gear). In this tutorial we give an overview of how FL SynthMaker works and use it to create ring modulator and echo/delay effects. May 30, 2012
