Software Product Description

Advertisement
LMMS is a free cross-platform alternative to commercial programs like FL Studio®, which allow you to produce music with your computer. This includes the creation of melodies and beats, the synthesis and mixing of sounds, and arranging of samples. You can have fun with your MIDI-keyboard and much more; all in a user-friendly and modern interface.

Features:

  • Song-Editor for composing songs
  • A Beat+Bassline-Editor for creating beats and basslines
  • An easy-to-use Piano-Roll for editing patterns and melodies
  • An FX mixer with 64 FX channels and arbitrary number of effects allow unlimited mixing possibilities
  • Many powerful instrument and effect-plugins out of the box
  • Full user-defined track-based automation and computer-controlled automation sources
  • Compatible with many standards such as SoundFont2, VST(i), LADSPA, GUS Patches, and full MIDI support
  • Import of MIDI and FLP (Fruityloops® Project) files
Requirements: Depending on the type and size of the songs you plan to write it's recommended to have at least 1 GHz and 512 MB of RAM. If you use VST-plugins and a recent SVN-copy of LMMS it's also recommended to have multiple cores and/or CPUs.

Note from FreewareFiles: The setup program includes a toolbar which is automatically installed.

"Try MuseScore instead"

Reviewer: -Gerry

Review Date: 2014-03-11

Pros: If you don't trust LMMS or find it limited, Why not try MuseScore, which is listed on this site? It's 100% free and open-source, does not install any malware or unwanted toolbars, and has a wide range of features for creating and playing back all kinds of music. Instead of standard MIDI output, it uses soundfonts to produce the sound (one of them comes with the program, but others are readily available), and the output can be recorded to audio files. Some users have written complete symphonies in the program.

Cons: After using this program for nearly 2 years and completing 237 scores with it, I can't think of any major drawbacks. Version 2 is currently under development.

Other Thoughts: You can also use the MuseScore-formatted files produced by this app to share your sheet music on the musescore.com website and get feedback from other musicians about it. There's also a good support forum on a separate website.
