A Place Where New FL Studio Producers Are Achieving GREAT RESULTS!
So Who Am I? Who’s GratuiTous?
So my artist and producer name is GratuiTous, but my real name is Riley Weller. I truly have a passion for teaching, and making sure my students are learning the right way, and are growing.
I got my start with my previous website Beatstruggles.com – You may have seen it while searching YouTube for FL Studio tutorials. (I made almost 150 FL Studio tutorials through Beatstruggles!)
Then I decided.. why am I managing two websites?
So I closed down Beatstruggles, and merged all those videos/articles into this website you’re on right now!
FL Studio Is Awesome, But It’s Not as Easy as It Looks in the Videos..

My FL Studio Beginnings:
GratuiTous first started using FL Studio around 2009 when his good friend Big B introduced him to the software.
He first installed the trial version, then after a month or two, he decided to take the leap and purchased the FL Studio Signature Edition.
In terms of his own music, he has over 13 releases on Spotify (9 Beat Tapes and 4 Albums.)
Riley Weller (GratuiTous) didn’t always follow Jesus.. It was only after multiple repercussions which broke him down to his lowest point.
He seeks to destroy the white lies which surround the “christian walk”.
This includes the church, and how they use Scriptures for their wants, rather than what the Scriptures are saying. (The exact same as the Pharisees.)
Example of a white lie?
Pastors preaching Christ’s birth date being December 25 (Christmas).
Here’s a fun fact for you: The Bible doesn’t tell us when Jesus was born!
Look it up! (Most of the Christmas Story is full of lies, too.)
If you’re new to this information, here’s a question:
Why do Pastors preach Christ’s birth being December 25 with no mention of this date anywhere in the Bible?
Do these Pastors not read? Do they only seek Scriptures people want to hear that attendance remains high, and thus profits remain steady every Sunday?
The Bible also does not tell us to even celebrate His birthday!
We look to Christ because of His Sacrifice, which forgives our sins.
(It’s all about the blood.)
Matthew 24:24 (King James Version - KJV)
24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
