- Avoid falling into established habits. Using the same instruments repeatedly might result in the same sounding melodies. Experiment with various generating settings.
- Clear out your project area. If your projects are a jumbled mess, it may be beneficial to name or colour label your channels. Fruity Loops features a fantastic feature that allows you to zip channels in the step sequencer. If something isn’t functioning properly, zip it up and try something else.

If you’re afraid about modifying a song and losing your musical ideas, establish a folder for the project and save a copy “tune01”, “tune02”, etc., each time you make a significant modification.
