This little write up is for a piece of software I love. It’s called LMMS (Linux Multimedia Studio) don’t let the name fool you. It’s not just for Linux, in fact it works just as good in Windows. LMMS is an FL Studio style DAW pattern-based electronic music sequencer. It works REALLY well and is fast. It has tons of users and a whole lot of videos and tutorials on Youtube to get you started. It costs $0 and is completely free and open source!
I’ve used LMMS extensively on the albums, The New Sun, Number Johnny Five and Several others. Some of the songs I’ve made using this software I consider some of my best! What’s really cool is you really don’t need anything other than a computer to use it. You can play notes right from your computer keyboard and record them patterns, or record in sequence mode. Its really easy to get the hang of and I definitely recommend it for all of you new music makers out there!
I’ve collected a few videos here to show you some of the power of this program and provide you with a link to their webpage to download below!
