Parent article: The Linux digital audio workstation - Part 2

... for which of these programs, or some other, would be the easiest to get started with for very simple music editing? I want to produce a few simple tunes for the background of a mostly spoken video. My music experience is not much - some high school choir and a bit of theory. I just want something that's easy to start playing with without spending a lot of time learning. :)

Do you need music notation ? If not, perhaps LMMS might be a best solution, it's a wee bit like Apple's GarageBand but I'm not sure that's what you need. If you need notation I suggest MuseScore (aka Mscore), you can look at it at LMMS is still located at :)

Thanks, I think you are right that LMMS would fit the bill. That is what most struck my interest when I first read the article. Tried it out briefly then and didn't get too far. Tried it again just now and got a bit further. Will review its documentation as time permits.
