From the TIGSource website for independent game developers:

Merry Chrimbus, everyone! To coincide with the opening of his new website, here’s a gift for you from Gryzor87, the musician behind Locomalito’s Hydorah and L’Abbaye des Morts: a full-color, 95-page manual on how to use Pixel’s free PXTone program to make your own game music. But the word “manual” doesn’t quite do the project justice – Gryzor87 not only walks you through the app’s features, he also provides a lot of excellent advice and examples on how to make music that sounds good and fits the theme of your game. The download comes with pxtone and plenty of sample songs, voices, and other examples, too.

In short, it’s a one-stop source for anyone looking to get into making their own game music, and a work of art in its own right.

Nifty! I'm going to have to have a read there~! :D

I hope that I can port some of the ideas over to FL Studio as I just bought it... :)
