You can adjust the velocity of notes without going into the piano roll, just click the channel you want and in the top right corner of the step editor click the velocity editor, and brap brap.

Only learnt this like, a week before I stopped using fruity, ahaha

Turn on Legacy Precomputed Effects in Settings > General

It just gives you a couple of simple effects in your sampler, (stuff like low pass filter, crappy reverb and simple amp) but it's really useful

1. Having made your percussion tracks send them all to the same channel so that you can you only have to move one mixer to change their volume relative to the others...

2. Select a hi hat noise on a sampler, then open up the paino key thing (not piano role) and then by hand draw a sine wave esk shape to get a more flowing hi hat... (The same could be done with an LFO on the pitch setting but i've never tried that)

3. Keep your folders organised... regroup all the original sounds by drum instead of group...

4. Make a new template for when you want to get a tune going quickly or mess about...

To sidechain, set up a peak controller on the effects of the kick or whatever you want to stay at a constant level, and then a fruity balance on the track you want sidechained. Then, on the volume controller on the fruity balance, link controller to the "peak" on the peak controller.
Sorry, a little bit vague, but you'll figure it out.

This is for FL8 and beyond, in the playlist /sequencer area there is 2 places you can input your pattens - in the blocks (where it has patten 1 - 0290329 going down) or the blank canvas where the automation clips go..you can put your pattens and audio clips there.
