Absolutely, it's the closest I've come to my (10 years ago) Windows
workflow, though I've still had to pull the rendered output into Audacity
to overdub vocals and acoustic instruments and mix it all down, just like I
had to pull it all into Cool Edit on Windows.
I assume the reason LMMS the black sheep of the Linux audio scene is
because of its history of glitchy JACK support. Not wanting to do anything
in real time that I don't have to, that's not a problem for me personally.
The last thing I want to do is have a program complain about xruns (or
worse, generate dropouts in my audio) because I chained more effects than
my small, energy-efficient computer could handle in real time. For me, the
"everything in real time" JACK way of doing things is limiting, not
That leads us to the other big issue: probably most of us who are
comfortable with LMMS were raised on MIDI sequencers and non-real-time
effects and soft synths, not mixing boards and effects buses like the
typical Linux musician seems to be. Overdubbing vocals and guitars onto a
bunch of rendered synthesized tracks is one thing, recording a bunch of
guys with drums and guitars from scratch is another thing entirely.
