I don't know fruity loops, but there's several ways to record midi data in GB:
- As you did, with musical typing. Don't worry if your timing is bad, you can quantize the notes afterwards with the quantization slider so they sit exactly on the beats.
- With an external midi controller, e.g. a keyboard, if you have one.
- You can just draw the notes into the region, which is the easiest way to create simple drum patterns. Pressing the cmd key turns the cursor into a pencil.

You want to pencil in the notes correct? If so try this.
1. Create an new empty Midi Software Instrument Track
2. Command Click in the Track Lane to reveal a Pencil tool
3. This will create a Region that you can drag out to any Bar length
4. With Region selected open the Midi Editor window and Command Click inside Grid to Reveal a Pencil tool
5. Now Pencil in the Notes, Drum Beats etc.
6. Quantize Drum Beats (Try 16th Notes to start)
