  1. I began using LMMS before recently purchasing a mac. Now I'm wondering whether I should convert to garage band, despite the fact that LMMS seems more logical to me. Garage band seems too packaged and tidy with fewer opportunities to create from the bottom up. Is this an appropriate assessment? Any suggestions as to which one is a better bet to focus my efforts on?
