LMMS is a program that allows you to create your own musical compositions using electronic synthesizers, samples, and various emulators. The built-in editor makes it possible to create templates that can be saved and used in the future, combining already created patterns or adding new ones to them. In addition to the editor, LMMS includes an advanced mixer that allows you to separate audio tracks into different channels. This is necessary so that each channel can be applied to its own effect. In this article, you’ll learn how to use LMMS 1.1.3.
By the way, there are also a lot of effects in this application, which allows you to set a different mood and tone for the created music. The utility supports several types of synthesizers, among which it is worth separately praising those designed for percussion and string instruments, speech, imitation of the sound of an organ, and so on. Each of the synthesizers has its own set of settings. The closest analog of LMMS is the well-known program FL Studio. In general, the functionality of these applications is quite similar, but unlike Fruity Loops, the presented tool is completely free.
