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.

This video shows you how...

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.
