Linux MultiMedia Studio (LMMS) aims to be a free alternative to popular, but commercial and closed-source programs like FruityLoops, Cubase and Logic, giving you the ability of producing music with your computer by creating loops, synthesizing and mixing sounds, arranging samples, playing with a MIDI-keyboard and more.
LMMS combines the features of a tracker-/sequencer-program (pattern-/channel-/ sample-/song-/effect-management) and those of powerful synthesizers and samplers in a modern, user-friendly and easy to use graphical user-interface.
LMMS provides software-synths and other plugins, cool presets for them and samples. Demo projects are provided to help users get started with LMMS.
LMMS is available for download at the Linux MultiMedia Studio site.
