    Here is what I love: - fast workflow to sequence midi, quick access to powerful synths (Zynaddsubfx is a must for everyone in sound design!) and lots of great native instruments (TB303, Monstro) and soundfonts, VST support, lots of ladspa plugins (like Calf studio), standard automation tools for most parameters, a wondeful (linear) FX chain for creative routing, and more. I find it's midi-learn capabilities are fast and easy: just right click on a parameter, spin your controller wheel and voila, you've got control. - for Linux, LMMS has recently taken a quantum leap by being able to support Carla: a patchbay modular host for lv2 and dssi and linux-vst. This means I can easily use the excellent suite of linux tools like IR.lv2 for reverb, various lv2 instruments, hydrogen multisampled drumkits (via DRMR.lv2), cabbage/csound plugins for beat-stutter/glitching, and much more. - plus, the community is helpful and active, with a nice place to share your projects.

    I am having a problem with getting started. I just downloaded the latest version September 9, 2014, and two days with it I still cannot hear anything! I did the settings when I first opened it, according to the tutorial that tells how. My output is not making it to my headphones or to my speakers, so I cannot hear what anything I do sounds like! I am not having this problem with any other audio software. If I cannot get this one working to my satisfaction, I will be removing it and finding another to replace it. I've asked for help with this at several sites where this application is discussed, and no one seems to know how to fix the problem. Sorry, but for now my rating is not worth giving!

    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!
