    "LMMS is a really cool music production application program. But I think it would be a lot cooler if the developers decided to make this more handy by making or porting it to Android or iOS devices. Because there are other people, like me, who wants to compose music and beats on such software but have no access to a computer that has it. Agree with me??? 👍"

    "I saw Skrillex make his songs through this software which made me think that this is a really great music production suite. And also although this isn't free, this one is also a little bit cheap compared to like FL Studio."

    "I have been using this since Cubase since Cubase 8 and I am getting the beats and other instruments that I like. And if you just stick to this software, you just need to pay a lot smaller to upgrade your current version to like 11 in the future."

    "The instruments in Garageband doesn't satisfy what I am looking for. If only more pre-built instruments and stuff are included, this would have been better. But so far, it is good for beginning DJs."
