No foul. We each have our unique experiences and opinions, they're all
valuable. And you're right, we do need to hear from users who are using
the program to their benefit. The lack of JACK support hurts for me
because I employ JACK in almost everything I do with Linux audio (I
think the only time it's not employed here is when I use Audacity or
ReZound), but that certainly doesn't mean the program isn't useful.
You're definitely having better luck with it than some of us. My
attempts at using VSTs were pretty disappointing.
I'm afraid I'm guilty of the "No JACK, no utility here" attitude. But in
my defense, it's fair to claim that JACK is just too cool to leave out
of any Linux audio application. I get anxious when I don't find it, my
hands start shaking, I can't see clearly, everything goes dark...
Actually, I'm such a fanboy that I even believe that Apache and Open
Office should have JACK support. ;)
Indeed. And I sincerely hope the LMMS guys get the audio issues sorted
out. I still believe that LMMS could be a great application for people
who might be attracted to FL Studio or Garageband on Windows and the
Mac. We need a reliable app in that category.
And btw, lest I seem to care not at all for the appearance of things, I
think the mock-up GUI improvements displayed on the thread at KVR look
great. I do understand the importance of a functional and attractive UI,
I just want audio stability above all else in an audio app. I also
understand that all good things take time, so hopefully in some time
we'll see LMMS mature into the app I and others would like to see & use.
