Does anyone else use it? Maybe we can share tips and stuff or just talk about it.

I just looked it up... it looks alright. I don't think I'd get it though.

Quite frankly, I stopped when I dragged one of the windows all the way up under the upper pannel, and a couldn't redrag it.

Unfortunately it's kinda hard to work with and it's confusing and doesn't have a lot of instruments and sounds, but I can't afford FruityLoops so :L

I feel I should be elsewhere saying this, but meh.

I began with LMMS because of that reason. Now I wouldn't buy FL if I'd be given a copy for free. If you want to hear what can be done with LMMS, click the second sheet on the left bar, and look at the folders.

LMMS has it's VERY weak points (Automation with ZynAddSubFX, some crashes, some bugs, and lack of some BASIC features, such as undo), but confusing? I assume you have never touched any other DAW, because that was my first thought when I made my first track. It gets easier when you learn more.
It doesn't have many samples, but it does have a lot of sounds. You see white sheet with a star on the left side? There's the (synthetized) sounds.

Also, http://freepats.zenvoid.org/freepats/ has "good enough" sounds to use. You may have to learn Patman's simple interface though, but it's a one-minute job.

Sorry to bump this thread, but it seems cool to have a little group for LMMS (cant afford FL Studio either; at least not yet ) .

I use it difficult at first, some problem with vst, it crash somtimes but if you find a way to work arounds the problems it much easier than fl studio.

Back in the day, I did everything in a demo of FL Studio. Since I couldn't save projects, I'd do them in single marathon sittings. Alternatively, I'd compose with MIDI, export the file, and then import it again later to work on. When the composition was done, I'd assign soundfonts to each channel, mix the whole thing, and export it as an mp3. That seems like a lifetime ago!

That said, I don't know anything about LMMS. Can it use soundfonts/VSTs and does it have a piano roll?

Yes it does have all of that but vst are tricky with lmms, sometime it work sometime it doesn't

Not really, try to stay update. Once I got my mixer knobs disappeared, on Ubuntu.

Seriously? And what do you think the scroll bar to the right is? Maybe scrolling up and down... :)
It took me a while too :p

Now that someone bumped this up, I like to add some tips too. Don't let the master volume spectrum fools you! Always let your volume stays lower that the limit. And to theZaal, that also happens in Linux, although later version fixed it.
