I've been using this sofware for years (Fruity Loops) now & thought about all the posts I have read involving ingame music.
when you create a song in Fl Studio you can save it as any format you choose especially midi.
hope this helps.

FL Studio is a really good tool for music-making, I must agree.
But, if you're me, all you can do is mess around with the cool sound effects; and music composition never happens...
Some day, I'll stop screwing around with it and actually learn to use it.

that is so true M I must agree that alot of my time using Fl I play with the cool sound effects
On the other hand I have made a few decent songs

This doesn't have much in it for a tutorial....
Maybe you could go into a little more detail of using FL Studio. What what does, what "whatever" stands for etc etc etc. It could help a lot of people and make this a really great tutorial

To add to what Magitek said, I think it's important that you also mention somewhere that Fruity Loops isn't a freeware. The fact is, the price can range from $50 to $350, which isn't always something one would want to pay if you're new to making music.

I'm moving this out of Tutorials and Examples because it's not really either, shifting it into General Discussion.

I always wish I could create my own music... I mean, I can come up with lyrics to a song -- and even sing a few (if I get reallllllly drunk, lol) -- but I can never conquer up the notes required, you know? Guess it's back to writing stories for me!
Still, looks like a good program.

In my opinion, starting with software like FL studio, which offers lots of high-quality sounds, is a very bad idea.
The first thing you need to learn is how to actually make melodies, basslines etc.
That's why I'd suggest something simple to start with, like anvil studio.
When you can make a decent song in AS, you can then move on to using FL studio.
If you try to compose your first songs straight into FL, you'll find yourself just messing around with the glitzy stuff, and end up making a load of high quality garbage.

I've got a buddy who loves to make music in his spare time (he also writes most of the songs in our band we started). He has FL Studio and he's made a few songs for my game already. I also have this program called Finale, which I'm able to use to make some half decent stuff, sometimes my music is just garbage though. Heheh.
