I just got FL Studios and I have no clue at all how to use it. I put a couple of beats together using that channel thing that is there in the beginning. After that I have no clue how to start to put a song together and export it as an mp3. Can someone walk me through the basics please?

Since getting FL6, I've done a lot more of placing small parts of beats on their own pattern, like just a kick on pattern 5, and just a snare on pattern 8. I make up a handful of different kick patterns (and different snare patterns, etc), and turn on the one I want in the playlist when I want it.
Really lets me be more flexible in quick-drafting a full song.
Once a background beat is made, I then start building my melody instruments with piano roll, controlling synths, or soundfonts, or samples, etc.
I admit though, that there's still a ton in FL that I don't know what it does. the synth section baffles me, and the mixer still gives me fits sometimes. I putz around till something sounds good, then I go from there =).
