Linux Multimedia Studio help
I'm new here and have just downloaded and started to use LMMS. As I'm new to music inputting and editing as well, I'm finding it a little confusing to use.
so if it's ok, I'll ask questions here whenever I think of them and if you guys were able to help me out I'd be so grateful!
first off, is it possible when creating a song to use instruments like piano and strings? the "instrument plugins" that are there are sort of kicker, organics, freeboy - confusing stuff and if possible I'd like to just use standard instrument effects.
second, how do you select a bit of song and copy it and paste it, so that if a drumbeat is going to be the same for 8 bars or something, you don't have to put in the beat 8 times, you can just put in one bar, then copy and paste it, and then add extra effects, drumrolls, etc, to it?
any help greatly appreciated!
