LMMS (formerly Linux MultiMedia Studio) is a digital audio workstationapplication program. When LMMS is executed on a computer with appropriate hardware, it allows music to be produced by arranging samples, synthesizing sounds, playing on a MIDI keyboard, and combining the features of trackers and sequencers. It supports the Linux Audio Developer’s Simple Plugin API (LADSPA) and Virtual Studio Technology (VST) plug-ins (on Win32, Win64,or Wine32). It is free software released under the GNU General Public License, version 2 (GPLv2).
LMMS accepts soundfonts and GUS patches. It can import Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI) and Hydrogen files. It can read and write customized presets and themes. Audio can be exported in the OGG, FLAC, MP3, and WAV file formats, and the projects can be saved in the compressed
MMPZ file format or the uncompressed
MMP file format. It can use VST plug-ins on Win32, Win64, or Wine32, though currently the macOS port doesn’t support them.
