As for the comparison of LMMS with the rest: no (live) audio can be recorded with it. It's purely meant for Midi and working w/ the instruments that are built in. Also remember that the LMMS version in most Linux distro's do not have (Windows) VST support built in. Use the KXStudio repo for that.
Don't take my reply personal.
I am however wondering something. Am I the only Linux user who knows how to contact the package manager ?
That's what I did first when I had problems on openSUSE with lmms.
The great people from packman, tried to help me, but told me there was a problem with LMMS.
This problem is fixed in the release candidates. ( RC4 is the latest I think )
They also told me they don't have time to test every program in detail.
So they check if it starts, and if it does , they are done.
They need users us telling them, If something is missing.
( for those wondering what the problem was, lmms compiled fine on leap 42.1 but not on leap 42.2.
Although the error I got while compiling was the same on both releases for some reason beyond my computer knowledge, it worked fine on 42.1 but not on 42.2 )
Options for people who want to try / use LMMS.
Compile it you're self.
Or wait for the next stable release.
Or test the Linux self installer, and give feedback if its not working right, on discord.https://github.com/tresf/lmms/releases/ ... 4.AppImage
When starting a vst two windows open, the vst gui and a window in which that vst should be, but is not.
What made me very happy though, when using synth 1 , and clicking on one of the knobs of synth 1, it always made that knob jump the the maximum position. That issue is fixed.
I also have Carla in lmms, although I need to figure out how to really use it, it seems to work as far as I can tell.
This should bring lv2 support to LMMS
to name one feature of Carla.
So we can use the newer calf plugins.
