    I got tired of my old DAW, so I did a web search and noticed that LMMS is now Windows friendly. Wow! I really dig this program. I'm just learning it but so far, it seems great and is a lot of fun. There are things I'd like to see developed in the future (like enabling a sequence of external VSTi, and external VSTi allowed as FX). But being a total freebie, who am I to complain? Right now my only beef is that "undo" (control z) doesn't seem to be working with Win 7 64. Other than that... a big THANK YOU to the developer!

    With Win 7 Home Premium and LMMS 1.0.0. I have a fantastic, stable DAW at my disposal with loads of built-in features and the ability so use additional freeware/ shareware or payware plug-ins. Look no further, with LMMS you'll be able to go a very, very long way before you'll need to pay for anything! It's simply great and second to none in the opensource world.

    Cakewalk pales in comparison to lmms.

    I *rarely* ever write reviews for *anything*, but I was so blown away by LMMS 1.0.0 that I simply had to put in a good word for the software (and the awesome devs!) - Previously, I could not load large soundfonts or the program would hang and/or crash. Now, at long last, I can load my beloved sf2 version of the gorgeous Maestro Concert Grand Piano, which weighs in around 900mb. - I'm in love with the new automation progression methods. 'Nuff said. - LMMS handles VST effects much better. - Overall (and I'm not trying to generalize, this is genuinely awesome) LMMS is much more stable in ALL regards. - New built-in plugins! Technically, I would give LMMS something like 5.9 stars because there are some usability features I would like to see added, but, coming from 0.4.15, 1.0.0 is 'one giant leap for LMMS' Awesome work!
