There are VSTi soundfont players out there (or softsamplers that can
import soundfonts OK)...  but since there are lots of other good reasons
to use FL....  ;-)

Basically, its a question of experimenting with the offset value in the
FL VSTi plugin window (the small window that comes up when you first
insert FL VSTi into Cubase, which you have to click to get to the full
FL interface).  Can anyone with Cubase SX suggest a known working value
for FLStudio 4.1?

This value seems to be different for different sequencers and also
different in different versions of FL.

I'd also recommend you insert two or four bars of silence into the FL
playlist so that the two apps have plenty of time to sync - if your song
starts on bar 1, you may find you drop samples as the two apps sync up.

hope that helps,
