"Start LMMS either by invoking it at a terminal prompt or by
clicking on its menu icon. Figure 1 shows off LMMS in its default
appearance with a loaded project, though you can change the program
skin and its background image via the Settings dialog in the Edit
"LMMS lets the user enter the composition process at various
levels. You can import whole recordings into LMMS, whether they're
sample loops or entire pieces. Drag a file from your samples
collection into a track in the Song Editor (Figure 2) and that
sample is now available for playing via the Piano Roll (Figure 3)
window. Left-click the track name to open the designated instrument
- it should be the Audiofile Processor for soundfiles - then
double-click in the track itself to open the piano roll editor.
When the cursor is in Draw mode you can add note events to the
piano roll. You can alter the pitch location and note length, and
switching the cursor mode will let you select events for editing by
group. The remaining modes provide an eraser tool and a detuner for
fine adjustments to the pitches of your samples."
