So, what do you actually use on FL Studio, or what would you use for a nice piano song that would actually be of a quality as good as when I play on a real piano, rather than this not-so-nice sound I make with CHANGPIANOHARD lol. FL Studio comes with it's own preset piano VST called 'FL Keys' so searching for FL Studio Piano will obviously bring you the Piano Roll information. Personally, I'm recording a lot of my own piano recently so I suggest getting a mic and recording something, given that you have a piano, if you don't, skip the step. There are a lot of soundfonts in the market these days, so by simply typing in Piano Soundfont in google, you'll get at least a 1,000 results and it's not worth skimming through all of them.
Then there are VSTs, which would not be my first choice if you're using piano, beacause the ones I tried eat your CPU, despite the decent enough quality. Nexus 2 for Electronic Pianos, it costs a pretty penny but it's worth it, I've tried it and I can say it has the best Pianos and Pads I have heard, period. Finally, Quantum Leap Pianos, the most beautiful, life-like (they're recorded, duh :P) and inspiring Pianos I've ever heard, If I had some extra money, I'd buy these, beyond the best quality you can imagine, and I'm not exaggerating.
FL Keys is great when you need a nondescript and cpu-economical piano in a massive production.
4Front TruePiano is much cheaper and you have more options for tunning piano than QL Piano.
This Fruity Loops tutorial will go over the basic functions and how to use the step sequencer. Boot up Fruity Loops, start a new project, and pull up the step sequencer if it’s not already on screen by going to VIEW at the top and selecting step sequencer or pressing F6. Usually when the program boots up the step sequencer will already be up loaded with a kick, clap, HiHat, and snare track, if not add some sounds from wherever you keep your samples. For this FL Studio tutorial I’m going to use a kick drum, HiHat, snare, and crash cymbal to build a basic track while highlighting most of the step sequencer functions. Of course you can also add notes manually by left clicking on any button on the grid and remove them by right clicking them. After creating a rhythm in FL Studio you have many options to tweak it right on the step sequencer.
Next to the left you have the select button that highlights the track you are editing right now if you want to select more then one channel hold SHIFT while clicking the little select buttons. This is a quick way to edit certain parameters for each channel and works as a kind of easy automation for that pattern.

Good luck learning to use Fruity Loops with this FL Studio tutorial, is should get you on your way to creating audio tracks. I'd be more looking for a piano sounds generator where I can compose a piano-only music and have the ability to easily play around with options until it sounds as I wish. Now despite you and a couple of other newcomers think FL Keys is good quality it isn't, so I suggest checking out some VSTs, Soundfonts and stuff like that. What I've found handy is the SGM V2.01, not only does it have 3 types of piano, 3 types of electric pianos and all that, it has much more instruments, such as a Music Box, Square Wave and Clavinet, and with some good mxiing, it will make you ana amazing song, go search for some tutorials or PM me if you need some help with song structure, mixing and all that.
For now I just needed something actually reasonably good, so I'm not looking for the most perfect sounds, especially since I probably couldn't even hear the difference with my 15-years old speakers or even my Apple headphones.
One of them, after a lot of EQing, was used in this song (heck I could even send you the mixer preset file used on it). Hopefully this can help new Fruity Loops users jump start producing tracks and if you have been working with FL Studio for awhile you can pick up a few things as well.
A couple easy ways to do this is by either hitting F8 to bring up the browser and going to the Packs folder where your sounds should be stored or clicking CHANNELS at the top, selecting Add One, and adding a Sampler track. If you have no idea how to read basic music note values and time signature I suggest learning them. Left click the first note on the left on the cymbal track and you have yourself a whole note.
First starting on the left you can turn on and off each channel by clicking the little green light, this is a great way to test different sounds or solo certain tracks while arranging and building your music.
If you right click on a channel button you can add notes like we did earlier along with a host of other functions including inserting a new channel, deleting or replacing the channel, or sending the channel to piano roll; which is a whole other beast that I’ll post about later. The button on the left will bring up the Graph editor where you can make a bunch of different adjustments to Pan, Velocity, Filter Cut, Filter Res, Pitch and Shift. So click the graph editor button and a graph will pop up; the bar under each note controls whatever parameter shown at the bottom for that certain note.
Here again a window will pop up under the channel letting you change the pitch of each note on a piano type layout.
I found that the best way to learn Fruity Loops is read a tutorial about something specific like the step sequencer then go through all the functions and buttons experimenting until you know how each will effect your project. I set it to 60 measures, but then when I use the scroll bar at the bottom to move over to the right, it stops at about 24 bars, and won’t let me see the rest of the bars.

I need to know how to change it to any realistic signature (where the bottom number is 1, 2, 4, or 8).
There are two lists of single piano notes in the browser (CHANGPIANOHARD and another) but they sound like it's been recorded live, and I can barely change the frequency of these notes to play another note.. Click the HiHat’s pan control and drag it down to the left a bit this will give a more realistic stereo position. Also left clicking on the channel button will bring up the channel settings for that Fruity Loops channel.
This is a fast way to build up melodies when using vst instrument plugins with FL Studio and is an alterative to using the piano roll.
If you want to speed up or slow down the beat use the Tempo control to the right of the play and record buttons.
Then pan the cymbal right a little and you’ll have a nicer separation and more human sounding drum kit.
Again I’m not going to get into that here, but play around with it and check back later for a tutorial on using it. This is good for making tiny volume variations to each hit giving your Fruity Loops tracks a more human feel.
To hear the effect highlight all the notes across the pattern grid for the Hi-Hat channel (giving you 16th notes), press play, and adjust the swing slider. You can monitor how much pan percent, as well as many other functions, by watching the info window just below FILE in the top menu.
If you want to adjust the other setting just click and drag the Velocity button on the bottom of the graph left and right. If you’re ever wondering what some button or whatever does just hover over it with the mouse cursor and check the info window.
