Ya man I use fruity loops 6 and if you use the same.I can send you a flp and give you an idea of where your beats should be around.I make my beats from scratch also.On your snare put one 4 steps from the start and on 3 steps from the end.That is the basic snare pattern once you got that on there just move around your bass kicks and get them to where they sound good with the snare.
