      FL Studio vs LMMS opinions
      Most users think FL Studio is a great alternative to LMMS.
      Ugotsta LMMS was modeled after FL Studio so it's very similar, though FL Studio has years of refinement through commercial development. LMMS is viable for creating commercial quality productions but FL's polished interface and workflow hugely simplify the task.
