It's in the Bio section :) I've been promoting the crap out of LMMS because of 
how useful I've found it. I also generally can't think of what to put as a 
sig most of the time, so I normally just link to software I like, generally 
Slackware, Debian, SUSE, and FreeBSD along with LMMS now that I have been 
using it long enough (I started using it about 2 and a half years ago and now 
I use it exclusively) I used to have Cakewalk, but let my Uncle borrow it and 
didn't ever get it back, and Orion Pro I had a demo of so I couldn't record 
unless I used a mic (I still have a lot of the stuff I made with the mic heh, 
it's terrible becase of quality issues) but then I started with LMMS and used 
MHWaveEdit to add in samples. Once I had a song done I liked adding samples 
from Night of the Living Dead, so I'd use MHWaveEdit to add those in after 
the song was completed, but it would not allow music to be played while a 
sample was added, so it would be silent while the sample played which is OK 
for an intro or something, but then one day I realized LMMS could actually do 
samples too as long as it was a WAV or OGG file, so I finally made it so that 
I used LMMS by itself without any other apps, and once I did that I sent my 
Myspace to the people who work on LMMS and got good responses. I also had a 
link but I'm not sure it worked to LMMS. I should fix that actually and 
update that.

Digital Horror Punk - Music I make! All done with LMMS
All done with Linux and FreeBSD
