Compared to Ableton Live, Bitwig, Reaper, FL Studio - what is missing in LMMS? Just wondering how I could help in development.
Scripting? Bindings to what can be done in GUI now. Scripting language should be enough powerful.

Check out our issue tracker: https://github.com/LMMS/lmms/issues/
That should give you a general idea of what's missing.

Basically we need people who can code. Fix bugs and implement new functions.
We're not in a desperate need of artists but if you're into computer graphics there's work to be done.

Users are asking for a new updated sample library and I don't know the current state of that work. https://github.com/LMMS/samples


The developers hang out on Discord.

That's about it!

First and foremost as zonk said Code!
Especially the stack of bugs
https://github.com/LMMS/lmms/labels/bug
that holds back the release of 1.2

If you like to get into coding, there is conventions and recommendations, You can read all about participating and how to get your own repository, the methods for creating and submitting patches and the Master commits, Here:

Project lead is Tres Finocchiaro He is the one to contact if you have special questions or run into some difficulties with the gitHub system.

Thank for showing interest in helping LMMS :D
Rewireble & FX-preset manager

Hi, devs!

Do you plan to implement rewireble support in LMMS not as a VST but native plugin that will work in master/slave mod? I found an old topic here, but found no answer. LMMS instrument set is rich, but it doesn't support audio record and clips. Sometime need to link two DAWs (for example reaper or ardour with LMMS) but we have no plugin that allow synchronize em. It'll be great if happenes!

My second question related to the implementation FX-preset manager. There is very uncomfortable if it have no possibility to save and load FX-presets. I was very pleased when I saw grafical EQ in FX list but there is no preset manager... LADSPA or LMMS plugins are very good but twist level handles every time project by project is very agonizing... And VSTfx often crushs LMMS and don't save presets... Coluldn't you to make anything to fix this trouble?
It is missing in LetsMakeMusicS for me personaly.
I want to add also that there is no mode of stretching the notes in LMMS sampler. it's not allow to apply modern playing techniques whithout instruments. It's sad...

You are talking of the Propellerheads/Steinberg protocol right?

I don't recall this having been up to discussion anywhere but probably no. We follow an open source license that would probably prohibit access to the libraries.

This is going to be implemented: https://github.com/LMMS/lmms/issues/1680
What about notes stretching in sampler?

Maybe, but it's a matter of time. It's on the todo list for the Sample Track so it will eventually be implemented for the sampler (Audio File Processor) too. There are more pressing issues to deal with currently.

Another matter of time is taking actual time from developing and answering posts like this one. I also just found your other post in the issue tracker https://github.com/LMMS/lmms/issues/191 ... -314525652 which is spiced with lines like 'Your slogan - Made by musicians, for musicians, in my opinion, mismatch reality.' and casual comments how 'this other DAW' make a better work with fewer developers. Then please use that other DAW is my suggestion.
@netmansky

If I'm not mistaken, one have to understand that all (or most?) people involved in the development of LMMS can only work on it during their free time ... principle of reality oblige (i.e. school, university, work, family, debts, etc.) :)
