MIDI doesn't have a sound, it just a protocol.  It
stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface.  The
sound that is played back comes from a sampler or
synthesizer among other things...  So, the quality of
your sound is gonna be dependent on the quality of the
sounds in your sampler/synth.

To get good quality sound using FruityLoops you just
have to start with high quality samples.  Most of my
samples are lifted from hip-hop cds and never leave the
digital realm.  And there are tons of sample sites
online, you just gotta filter through a lot of bad
quality shit.

I only use MIDI within FruityLoops to contol my
synthesizer.  IMO FruityLoop still isn't good for that
though.  Better to use Cubase/Logic/Sonar if you're
really runnin a MIDI based studio.
