  • Are there any good FOSS alternatives to a program like FLstudio?

  • CB wants me to produce an entire track for some quickly written lyrics they have for free because “it’s easy”!
    Ardour, Reaper (60 days of trial and really cheap license for an amazing software), LMMS and Cakewalk are all free if you don't own an Apple device or don't like GarageBand. But for real, GarageBand is incredibly awesome, I remember first trying out on one of the first ipod touch models and this year testing the newest version on ipad, it's insane what the developers kept adding, I still can't believe it's completely free.
  • How do I make chiptune music?

    Check out the free DAW LMMS. It comes with three synthesizers which emulate Gameboy, NES and Commodore64. Check this video as an example, to see it in action. If you need help in using the DAW, just come over to the nice community at r/lmms.
  • No spend hobby I can do now? (lockdown)
    You can also learn to make music in your computer or at least make some noises for a few days, try with a free software like https://www.bandlab.com/products/cakewalk or https://lmms.io/ and if your computer is really low end you can use some oldschool trackers like milkytracker to make chiptunes

  • Anyone know a music making program, supporting midi? Preferably open source of coarse
    DAWs (Digital Audio Workstations) like Ardour or LMMS are like the "Office suite" of music making. They are big programs that can record, arrange, and edit audio and MIDI tracks, add effects, mix and export etc.
  • In the song editor the segments won't snap to the bar

    Alright, as I suspected it's this issue: https://github.com/LMMS/lmms/issues/5113
  • Tips on Eurobeat
    reddit.com/r/eurobeat | 2021-06-24
    This week I started making eurobeat, for the DAW, I use LMMS which is both free and really easy to use. As for the synth, I first used Synth1, it was good, but definitely not for beginners. Now I've switched to Vital and although as complex if not more as synth1, I think it's an upgrade over it. Synth1 does have a +25k presets folder, though, I think it's on their website, I gave you a different link because I couldn't download it from their page.

    LMMS is free, lightweight and easy to use. There are many tutorials on YT, some are even specific to low-fi/chillhop music.
