I hope so.  The best way to get help is to ask specific questions, tackling
one or two things at a time.

I hope to produce some in the not too distant future.  Have you been through
all the flash based tutorials on the fruityloops website?

Is it possible to use the QY70 as a tone module?  (i.e. can you trigger its
internal sounds via the MIDI in connection?)  I'd imagine this would be
possible, seeing as most people would hook it up to a keyboard to use it.
If so, you could just just the MIDI out plugin to trigger the QY70 sounds
and feed the audio output of the QY70 to the input of your soundcard for
monitoring/recording purposes.

Another possibility (but rather painstaking) is to sample each of the sounds
you want to use and bring them into a sampler channel, or if you want to
create multi samples (so that different samples get played for hi/lo
velocities etc) you are better of creating sound fonts and using the sound
font player.

hope that helps,
