LMMS (short for Linux MultiMedia Studio, AKA: Let’s Make Music Studio) is a free, open-source and cross-platform digital audio workstation (DAW) program for Windows, Mac and Linux platforms, considered to be one of the best alternatives of many similar commercial programs like FL Studio. With LMMS, you can create an entire piece of music without having to insert a separate musical instrument.

As an excellent digital audio processor/music production software, LMMS can be understood as GIMP or Krita in the sound world. It has user-friendly and modern interface, an incredible array of sound effects and an impressive array of instrument options; it can generate music from synthesizing sounds, arranging samples and playing on a MIDI keyboard; combines the features of trackers and sequencers; and supports LADSPA (Linux Audio Developer’s Simple Plugin API), LV2 (LADSPA Version 2) and VST (Virtual Studio Technology) plugins. In summary, LMMS offers those power features and options you’d expect to get only from expensive proprietary software.

If you’re looking for an audio editor to produce music (including the creation of melodies and beats, the synthesis and mixing of sounds, and arranging of samples) with your computer, but if you don’t want to pay a lot of money for proprietary software, then you should not miss LMMS. Of course, LMMS does have a fairly steep learning curve, so getting started with its interfaces and tools will take some time.
