I dont have a midi drum pad so i have to use the drums via the Piano Roll.
I'm wondering how i can have it set up so i click on the FPC drum pad and the corresponding sound automatically appears in the Piano Roll instead of having to click the piano roll.
As far as I have come to understand...you can't record samples by clicking the fpc pads. They are however, matched up to random letters on your keyboard if that is all u got.
Here is a small video I made on how to record from the FPC just using the computer keyboard. Usually I smash out keys on the sequencer real quick, but I tried including a few details you might find helpful maybe.

click options>audio settings and fuck with the buffer length to get a better real-time recording. set it high and you get a big lag, set it low you get less, but if you set it too low you'll get a lot of underruns which is basically the sound clipping out.
if you have a badass sound card this is pretty much irrelevant, but most ppl don't so...
you can also get around the buffer problem by quantizing, but a lot of purists (aka gays) are against this. hit Alt+Q in the piano roll to fuck with that.
Just wondering, what drum packs or vst's u guys use? Obv if u use Reason this doesn't apply, I just find the supplied presets ive heard on FL unsatisfactory and the same applies for the ones I've dl'ed.
I download drum kits and sample breaks. Go to general-search.com and search "drum kits" for a bunch of stuff. As long as the samples are in wav format, you can use them for just about any software fyi.
