Hey guys,

I appr= eciate all the hard work you put into this program. I tried it out before, = when I just started using Ubuntu, but back then I could not make it work ye= t, now I installed it again after I learned to setup jack, I stil= l didn't setup the sound right - I have a learning curve before me and= I am not very computer savvy... what to say, I am an analogue person. = ;This is some constructive feedback as to what program needs to become much bett= er as I would like to see this project go viral (simply, I believ= e in open source software)...

Now some constructiv= e feedback:
- Main thing to me as a user is that VST plugins and = soundfonts are not quick enough to load and that the section isn't customiz= able=0A enough. This slows down the work and many people don't realize the = potential of the program. Fruity Loops is so popular because it is easy to = use. But you can top that! I believe in you. People are used to their VSTs = that they use in Fruity or other DAWs, and to make the switch real eas= y and comfortable, these should be more prominently featured and the users = should be able to save project patterns and be able to change the main sect= ion where instruments and other things are featured, also more shortcuts to= make the work real quick. What I suggest is to have VST plugins (the list = of dll files on the sidebar found in the VST default folder, per example, t= o avoid digging through folders) and that one can send them into a channel = (or open a new one) with a mouse click (middle click) or something, th= at they automatically open in VeSTige with this click or that I can send th= em into a channel I want, not that I have to open a new VeSTige channel=0A = first every time and then dig to reach the desired plugin. Same thing with = soundfonts. I have to open a new SF player channel and then look for the so= undfont, or worse, load VeSTige, then look for my preferred soundfont playe= r, and then look for the soundfont. Put the soundfonts default folder = aside as the list of .sf2 files (again to avoid folder digging), that I can= send a soundfont into a channel or new channel with a click or two and tha= t it automatically opens in SFplayer or the SF player that I set as default= . Also, the list of the main featured synthesizers and players should be cu= stomizeable. That the user can make their own patterns for certain kinds of= projects. Per example, they want Kontakt5, their favorite soundfont player= , their drum machine and sampler of choice in the featured list, instead of= the default. They just want to click them once or twice to send them into = a new channel or into a desired channel. Or simply they want to=0A have fea= tured their favorite VSTs, that of course automatically open as a new chann= el in VeSTige when middle clicked, or they can choose to send them into the= selected channel. This speeds up the work and is sooo much more comfortabl= e.

Bug reports:
- Kontakt player doesn't= load right. The gui loads, however when I click on other options to look f= or the libraries or switch keyboard on/off and such, whatever expands or re= duces the gui dimensions, it messes up and the rest of the gui is cut off. = It is very hard to load instruments and I have to be extracareful so the gu= i doesnt get cut off so I cant reach options.

In Fruity loops I just=0A open Kontakt = player in another channel with one click, and copy-paste into new chan= nel (if I have recorded a melody), and continue my work. In LMMS it ge= ts aggravating because these shortcuts are lacking plus the gui is messing = up. Maybe it is more customizeable than I think, I just missed something be= cause I am not yet well familiar with the program. I might have missed some= options, feel free to correct me. If needed, I will provide the screenshot= s to show what happens with Kontakt player gui.

- = Another thing, if I drag any of the windows high enough the top gets covere= d by the upper menu area (idk if I explained it well), I cannot reach these= windows upper edge to grab them to move them back. The windows need t= o be set to be always on top or something so this overlapping doesn't occur= .

This happene= d the last time too and it took me alot of time to return the sound. I stil= l have no sound on headphones (it is working on speakers). I suspect it wou= ld be jack and not directly LMMS, but mentioning just in case.
Finally, do not listen to the people who bitch about LMMS= or are ungrateful for your hard work! It has a bright future, it is just i= mpossible to catch up on every detail at once. I don't know programming nor= I am that good with graphics to be able to help the development directly, = but I am happy to help anyway I can so let me know.
Ttyl! ^-^
