Cool! Whatever works the best for you. Yeah Fl is more sight orientated, but it works more precise that way. Especialy when you feel where you want to go with your sample. Edison is a godsend for making loops.
I like to just let the loop play and drum away on my keyboard. Then I record the drum semi live. First the snares for a proper bmp then the kicks and then the hats. Best way to create swing.
I haven't been making beats for a while because I'm having some gear problems. Soundcard shit. My Revo 5.1 is a piece of shit and latency becomes worse every day. I bought a 1212m, now I found out I need a pre-amp. Ordering one soon. Then it's back to pleasuring men and making beats.
