Music lovers have numerous strong choices for organizing and playing their collections of songs on the Linux desktop. But music creators have far fewer professional-strength options among Linux applications. But with Linux MultiMedia Studio, or LMMS, one option may be all you really need. LMMS does it all and does it all well. It is a sound-generation system, a synthesizer, a beat/baseline editor and MIDI control system. Taken together, this app can handily give you all the music-creating ability you need to operate a home music-making studio.
